Frankfurt Germany DAX Stock exchange real time affordable feed
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)
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?
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

Here is the latest updates of info to nearing the completion of my HFT system. If ready, be one of the first to see it live Jan 8 for my Premium Members. Don’t forget about the 50% increase coming Jan 14 as well.
Once all this is fully implemented, I hope to have my new HFT system ready for demonstration. I may even present live if it is ready for my next online event for my Quantlabs.net Premium Membership. That happens Jan 8, 2013.
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:
$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.
$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.
