I dont think IQFeed loses ticks
A comment cam in via Youtube
are you planning to continue using iqfeed as you move to linux does having to use wine worry you at all? and for using ib data (please note i am a complete beginner) i heard they sample their data, i.e. you dont get all ticks i am not sure if this is important in general, or just for tick by tick strategies so arent you concerned by this?
I do plan to use IQFeed with Linux using WINE. I know Interactive Broker aggregate data but it seems the IQFeed datas looks ok. This data seems to be streamed where there is no loss so I am not concerned. See the IQFeed presentation below. Either way with competitors, IQFeed is best value if you want Bloomberg Terminal level analysis.
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!
