This morning I spoke with a support guy from IQfeed and he told me that it was not possible to get back fill on cumulative delta because IQ doesn't store market bid and ask volume :S

I think there has something gone wrong in your communication with IQFeed. You do not have to be logged in all the time to get proper Cumulative Delta Values.

It's late now. Let's try tomorrow to properly configure a chart for you.

I don't know who you talked to, but yes IQFeed has historical bid/ask and Sierra Chart supports it.

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.

Hi all,

IQFeed provides historical bid price and ask price but not the size.

All you need is the bid ask for each 'last' tick. It works perfectly in Sierra Chart with IQFeed, cumulative delta backfill works.

Forget the remote chart option and start with only IQFeed as the only data service.

I figured it out

Data must be downloaded as tick data which is not set per default .

Sierra Chart - Tick by Tick Data Configuration

Thanks for all the support guys!

Back fill delta data

My CD never back fills properly and my historical download is set to tick. Its either inverted or flat back fill unless my computer is on.. IQ Feed told me they don't store historical delta data was the reason that happens..

To understand this thread properly, when you turn on the computer in the AM, you see the delta on your overnight chart as well and its not inverted or flat lined? Its also the same thing on footprints.. the back fill data is missing.

I don't know what's going on with you IQ users who are having problems with delta. I had IQ for a year and used it with Sierra for a while and always delta was fine. Something's not set right if you do not have CD correctly, because it all works perfectly.

For a sanity check make sure "Download Historical Intraday Data As" is Ticks and also "Intraday Storage Time Unit" is 1 Tick.

Also, I'm shocked that anyone from IQFeed told you this, or that some of you have misinterpreted it. A tick from IQFeed looks something like this:

[TIME] [LAST] [VOL] [BID] [ASK]

Note there is no bid size or ask size, but that does not matter at all for a delta calculation. Everything you need is right there, and every tick from IQ has it. Check your settings.
