Trade a like pro quant or trader? Use IQFeed or NXCore for tick data?
My conversation with web chat at IQFeed support:
Bryan : Hi. Can I use this feed service from within Ontario Canada?
You are now speaking with Trent of IQFeed End User Sales.
Trent : Hello
Trent : Yes, it doesn’t matter where you are as long as you have a high speed internet connection
Bryan : ok cool
Bryan : so i just use this price schedule to access what i want?
Bryan : http://www.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?displayaction=data§ion=fees
Trent : Yes, is there a specific software you are using the feed with?
Bryan : I am using an open source platform. They support you.
Trent : Interesting, never heard of them
Trent : I can post a link so you can do a trial of IQFeed
Bryan : ok. please do.
Trent : https://www.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?displayaction=start&promo=1996499
Bryan : also, what does the basic feed give? QFeed Basic Service?
Trent : All delayed data on the exchanges and over 500 market indices and indicators in real-time
Trent : Live news also and historical data
Bryan : similar to yahoo finance?
Trent : Similar but our data is streaming delayed, not end of day
Trent : I really dont know anything about Yahoo Finance
Bryan : how much delay is there
Trent : Its regulated by the exchange so it depends on which one
Bryan : what about NYSE, NASDAQ, or LSE?
Trent : LSE we dont have
Trent : NYSE and NASDAQ b/w 15 and 20 min
Bryan : ok
Bryan : do you have LSE?
Bryan : sorry i meant TMX
Trent : Yes
Bryan : ok
Bryan : so if i want tick bars, does your service provide? what is the higest frequency I could get?
Trent : With IQFeed tick is as low as we go
Trent : With our High End product NxCore i believe it goes to the 10 millisecond
Trent : And is the whole market streamed to your PC
Bryan : ok i guess I need to focus on nxcore
Bryan : what are the fees for that with the 10 ms?
Trent : Let me post the info and sales rep info for that
Trent : It starts around $1000 per month
Bryan : ok thanks
Trent : http://www.nanex.net/NxCore/NxCore.htm
Bryan : thanks for the info
Trent : no probem
Bryan : it was very helpful
Bryan : see ya!
Trent : later
Your party has left this session.
I was impressed but the NXCore seems more relevant but I don’t got $1000. Maybe in the future? But my trading platform is in Beta mode for NXCore anyhow.NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
