FWIW the code in second link (IQFeed_NETSocket_Example) works. It launches IQ Connect and then looks like it pulls data OK. I was just playing around with it, but if I needed to do something real the $300 annual support & documentation package would be a no-brainer.

Oh, really interesting, is possible to use it with NT or others Platforms? If yes, could u insight me on how to?
Anyway if we can use the API for $300 a year and get all the data, why subscribe to IQFeed service?:tape:

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

IQ Connect requires a paid subscription to get data. Sorry .

The $300 API support/docs/code examples are on top of that.

I have not used these, but I am fairly certain you still need the API. See the "IQFEED_DEMO" in the calls. That is the app id that you register.

I think this "IQFEED_DEMO" is an API token which is given to each person who ponies up cash to IQFeed to write code for the API. I guess that is the way DTN knows which API client's software is accessing it. If your subscription to the API is not current, they can treat it as the IQFEED_DEMO token and not support more than 10 symbols with delayed data.

This also means that if you buy some software which links with IQFeed via the API, then if that software vendor stops paying DTN the subscription fee, your software too will stop working.

I use this API, and it's great. I have a load of code that downloads everything I need each night without having to do it through Ninja. This is a big sticking point for me in thinking about switching to Kinetick - I won't be able to do this anymore because I wouldn't be subscribing to IQFeed and Kinetick don't support this API download.

Why would you switch from IQfeed to Kinetick? You can get the fee waivers from IQfeed directly.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Well, the reasons are not compelling for me, and it's unlikely I will switch, but the reasons are, I believe -

- they offer a cheaper package
- they have coded Ninja direct to DTN servers - i.e. not through IQFeed software

Now that second one I presume is designed to offer increased performance. I do wonder though whether going through the IQFeed software gives you a more reliable protocol, given the discussions of what Ninja may or may not do with Zen Fire data.

Is it worth going direct through IQFeed API instead of using NinjaTrader/IQFeed? Performance wise that is.

Iīm looking into, develop a custom order type based on acceleration on current trades thatīs hitting into bid/ask. Itīs for CQG Trader Lite, actually CQG has no API support for Lite only for IC.
Iīm using NinjaTrader for charting with IQFeed, but CQG Trader Lite for execution.

I just canīt decide if should upgrade to CQG Trader IC and use there API, using NinjaScript or IQFeed API. I want to keep my transaction cost as low as possible. C++ or C# doesnīt really matter, although C++ is preferred.

Hi @JLido,

don't you know the CQG Trader Package? The Pricing is very competitive. Pricing $50 per month plus $0.25 per contract, capped at $420 per month. The API is widely used and well discribed. No need to upgarde to IC if you don't need the charting.

Thanks Koepisch!

Iīm using CQG Trader Lite right now, itīs $.10/RT and $10/month from Deepdiscounttrading, instead of .25 for CQG Trader.
Thing is, that Lite doesnīt have support for the API and itīs not the execution itself thatīs the problem.

Hereīs a short description of what I want to accomplish:
I trade the Eurex bonds, Bobl. Itīs relatively slow and sometimes I wait for a big order to hit a bid for confirmation to take the trade, can be at a support level. Problem is that, itīs hard to be that fast, so I end up getting filled one price worse than Iīd like, and when scalping the Bobl, it means quite a lot.
Once Iīm filled, I work from CQG Trader Lite ladder/DOM with my exits. (I use NinjaTrader/Jigsawtrading Depth&Sales for decision making)

Plan is to measure the acceleration of the orders on a bid (or offer) and also see to that not to many bids are pulled or thereīs an iceberg. I will then place a "pre-order" at a price and let it execute for me if thereīs a big order coming.
I will use Win32 Postmessage to communicate with CQG platform.

If it gets to messy, I might just go for the CQG Trader (incl API) or start trading from Ninja, but Iīd rather stick to what I have now, since every cent counts.

So, the question is, is it worth the trouble going through IQFeed API? It is for me, if performance on NinjTrader/IQFeed is to slow compared to raw IQFeed API.
