IQFeed API Users

Is there any one who has used the IQFeed Data Feed programing API?

They charge a fee just for trying it out, even when you pay them hundreds a month.

According to them eSignal charges thousands so they are OK with charging hundreds

Yes, I use it extensively.

They charge a one time $300 fee in order to get access to the code, docs, and support. I suspect they charge so not every tire kicker out there swamps them with questions. Very reasonable IMO.

Thanks aslan.

It is not a one time fee but an annual fee of $300 which is not refundable even if you do not want to use it (for whatever reason).

I would expect them to at least offer a free limited time, non-supported version for paying subs; perhaps something which is tied to your login and can not be distributed. Right now they are not distinguishing between a commercial developer who has full right to distribute the software with the API code and a hobbyist programmer who wants to do a few experiments to see if they can make their current setup better.

I want to create a simple program which creates fresh GOM files which are complete without having to to run Market Replay, Quote Collector or keeping my NT on 24/7. I pay them close to $3K an year for the data so don't like the Nickel and Diming.

Yes, it is annual. I had forgotten that, but my sub is up soon.

I agree it would be nice if they had something to try.

How do they know that you are actually using the API to run your own code vs. using NinjaTrader or one of the other supported 3rd part apps? Is there some special token that is exchanged upon connection which identifies the platform connecting?

They do not charge to "use" the end user code (i.e. NT). They are charging to get access to the doc, the libs, and support. You also register an id with them for your app. When your app starts up and connects, it uses that id to connect, which I assume they validate as part of the process. So as long as I am registered, I can distribute my apps and they should work.

I have not tried it yet, but I've looked at this:

IQFeed .NET API Wrapper

And this:

Telvent DTN Forums

Aslan do you know if one needs to be an IQFeed API sub or would a vanilla IQFeed sub be OK?

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.

Both of those references appear to built as a wrapper on top of the IQ library. I write code that interfaces directly to the lib. Either method is fine depending what you are trying to accomplish and how much know how you have.

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.
