A member just notified me of this so thanks to them for this:

And I found http://www.boerse-frankfurt.de/aktien/realtime-quotes/DAX (German stock exchange) to be an excellent source of German stocks, which is probably fine for me for the time being. (They do offer more broad and international realtime feeds strating with 100€ per month)

IQFeed still leads the choice for backtesting and real time market feed over Interactive Brokers ActiveTick and others

IQFeed still leads the choice for backtesting and real time market feed over Interactive Brokers ActiveTick  and others

IQFEED most bang for you buck

I can verify this ?

Qfeed (True Historical Order Flow)

 

 

I’m watching the level-2 screen and the level-1 screen on IB and it never seems to match up with the quotes that I get out of IQFeed. IQFeed is definitely realtime, since I’m seeing the prices match up. It’s just that the sizes don’t match up. Which one is missing exchanges, or is one pulling in regional data that’s not the same?

I still think IQFEED is the best for quality and historical. The APIs are really good depsite the extra little bit you pay for. The pro ones are 10x the price!

Is CQG considered useless to dropping feed and slow connectivity?

Is CQG considered useless to dropping feed and slow connectivity?

This came in from a newsletter subscriber:

CQG were hopeless. Their datafeed API is COM and kept dropping. We found problems in their datacentre with servers dropping our connection due to slow connectivity. They told us they’d fixed only for them to recur. Unusable

Comments like this are imporant but feel free to provide feedback

Is CQG and Matlab a deadly combination I never thought of? Or Interactive Brokers?

There appears to be a hidden demand for my Quant Elite Members:

Do we say hello to a new FPGA board for potential HFT deployment?

Trading platform connects to market data feed IQFEED with Pricing Details but can Yahoo Finance ticks provide for free?

 

Trading platform connects to market data feed IQFEED with Pricing Details but can Yahoo Finance ticks provide for free?

This is a big deal. I am quite happy now to see this work! I am using IQFEEDs with a trial period of 7 days.

There are two components you need to worry about while using IQFEEDs. This includes:

  1. $50 fee for setup and a basic monthly fee of $65 per month. You need to add on small monthly fees for the type of data including which country of exchangem options, future, etc.
  2. $300 for API entitlement to the IQFEEDs API. This is an annual fee.

 

As compared to other competitors, IQFEEDS is the most affordable. Support seems pretty responsive and they do care about your needs. Other competitive providers seem to use a bunch of yahoos who don’t know what they are doing.

All is good but unfortunately, my trial with IQFEEDs will expire next week which does not give me enough time to play with strategy development in my open source trading platform. Remember it is Christmas for us Canadians so there will be very little time to play with this further.

As the IQFEED trial does end, I am thinking there might be a possible substitute using Yahoo Finance data with another open source project where I could use Yahoo to substitute the market feed. As you know, Yahoo Finance might be a decent experiment and will give me more universal symbols to work with which my tracking system for my paying Members who get daily reports.  This might take a few weeks to develop but I could save hundreds per month until I get my Interactive Brokers on activated. Do note this Yahoo Finance option would be severely  limiting.

 

I think I got a solution here. Note you need that paying Membership.
