Quote from vikana:
It's worth noting that IQFeed costs $300/year for API access. With IQFeed you also pay the exchange fees, which for NYSE + Nasdaq + Amex is $15.
So you essentially have an incremental cost of $40/mo with IQFeed in addition to the $65 base cost.
Without e.g. eminis, the breakeven point is about 400 symbols, i.e. 3 boosters
PS: IQFeed is excellent (I used it for several years through the API). It's not really comparable to the sampled IB data as you get all ticks time stamped.
if only you know how to process those quotes for 400 or whatever tickers..
IB is no problem-every update goes by id, assigned to specific ticker...while with IQ -YOU have to sort it out on YOUR side which quote belongs to what ticker. i'm wrong?
