Thanks for letting me know your thoughts. I use IQFeed but on and off for 2 years but when you leave, they expect to be paid onthe last month of ‘use’. They have been pretty good under the circumstances.
What are your thoughts on Kinetick? Thoughts on pricing? HAve you seen the quality of data from Quandl?
just to tell you
to use Kintetick, you are limited
you cant use tick data when market is closed..
and that is the major difference with IQfeed and Kinetick.
everything else is same..

i have not used Kinetick for now as i am very happy with IQFeed.
As for Quandl I just downloaded some futures data and it seems the data is quite reliable. I would say a nice alternative to Bloomberg but for free 🙂
