Robert Carrillo, Global Account Manager at DTN Trading Markets, will be monitoring this thread so that he may answer any questions that you post here relating to Telvent DTN IQFeed products and services.

Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels at DTN.

DTN IQFeed is well known as being the industry leader in market data, providing the most accurate and reliable data feed available to retail traders. IQFeed is compatible with all major trading platforms, products and services, and includes true tick-by-tick data from all major exchanges.

You'll also find options for fundamental data, real-time market stats/breadth symbols (like TICK, TRIN, and hundreds of others), plus real-time news from RTT, PR Newswire and Business Wire.

In addition to this thread, I will also be asking Robert Carrillo to stop by on occasion for a casual webinar where he can answer questions via audio while also sharing his screen to visually demonstrate any points as needed. The date/time of those sessions will be announced here in this thread. These sessions will be limited to questions only, there is no prepared presentation. After the session ends, the recording will be posted in this thread.

Robert, I have two questions for you One easy, one not so much...

When will IQFeed 5.0 be formally released?

and..

Can we please have more than 120 days of tick data? At least for popular futures instruments (making up majority of users here on futures.io (formerly BMT)). I'd love to see a couple of years of tick data for say 10-15 of the most popular futures instruments, like indices, commodities and currencies.

Hi Mike,

No official release ETA for 5.0 as developers are still working on it, but I'm confident it will be sometime in March.

Increasing tick historical is a priority for us as well. I've heard talk of offering 12 mos of tick as our next next jump from the current 4 mos, but it may be 2014 before we see that.

OK timeframe sounds good on both. I realize that providing a year or two of tick data across the board would be monumental, that is why I was hoping if we narrowed the scope just to the most popular futures instruments it would be an acceptable request.

I'd like to see two years, but will take one as a good improvement

Could you provide a pingable IP to your market data servers (multiple IPs if it applies. i.e. multiple gateways, EU / US / AZN, etc) ? Thx in advance

Hi SARdynamite,

Sorry for the delay in replying. Long weekend and playing catchup.

66.112.148.220 - 66.112.148.229
66.112.148.110 - 66.112.148.119

SARdynamite asked for the difference between the IP ranges, a very good question.

We only have 2 server farms so the pings to each server on the same farm would be the same. Pinging the following 2 IP addresses will give you latency to each of our server farms:

66.112.156.220
66.112.148.220

I'm sorry my first response was neither complete nor clear.

Robert

Hi syxforex,

We are always interested in adding new exchanges. HKFE is high on our list. We keep a record of individual requests for exchange additions, so I would encourage you and anybody you know who wants IQFeed to add HKFE to email robert.carrillo@dtn.com and request it.

The only way to make it happen is if enough potential users of the data make their desires known. That's how we make a business case to justify the additional expense of thousands per month.

Thanks in advance.

Robert
