It's rock solid and it has a really nice API. You guys do a great job in tech support. I have had no probs with data from DTN since switching over.
I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!! I would also like to extend a big thanks for the fast and efficient help that I always receive. My questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. Way to go! Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum "Thanks for all of your help.
Great customer service deserves to be recognized which one the reasons I've been a customer of DTN for over 10 years! It is a sincere and refreshing pleasure to do business with DTN, compared to your competition. IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions Fed releases, employment numbers, etc.
I love it. I cannot stop praising them or their technical support. They are always there for you, and they are quick. It's the most reliable and fastest quote feed I have ever used. Although I'm a resident in China, it's still very fast! It's working perfectly with no lag, even during fast market conditions. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable.
You provided me with noticeably superior service in my setup compared to a couple of other options I had looked at. I have had no problems at all since switching over. Your unfiltered tick data is excellent for reading order flow and none of your competitors delivers this quality of data!
I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years. I am very satisfied with your services. And IQFeed is the only one that I would recommend to my friends.
Now, most of them are using your product in China. Very, very rare to have any data hiccups or anything at all go wrong. The support is mind-bending. What service! I love the product, but more so I am thrilled with Tech Support.
You are knowledgeable, polite, pleasant and professional. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I just love your customer service. Holy cow
Both eSignal and IQFeed provide intraday historical data. It seems IQFeed provides substantially more historical data for stocks. IQ Feed and E-signal are two viable options. a live and historical data feed based on minute data for Futures, Forex and Stocks. NOTE Forex Strategy Builder has no relationship with DTN IQFeed, eSignal, or Tradeworks Software (the publishers of the QCollector products).
