FDAX/DAX data feed on IB

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by hippie, Feb 27, 2010.

  1. My experience has been that IB servers are funky at night. Anyone here uses IB datafeed to trade FDAX/DAX ?

    Thanks in advance for your info.
  2. I can say with some certainty that IB servers are not "funky". Now what is your question?
  3. Sorry Mr. Craig but I would have to agree with hippie.

    If I were you hippie,

    I would double check all data feed against IB.
  4. Yes, unfortunately IB's Eurex feed sucks recently (has been quite stable over one year before).

    About 4 weeks ago they suddenly showed no volume for some symbols (FDAX JUN, FDAX MAR, FESX JUN) sometimes dropping it within the session.
    When asking customer service about this they confirmed the problem but told me that they needed "about two weeks" to fix that.
    Price data was ok though.

    Other data providers showed no problems during these times.

    Seems that Eurex is low on their priority list.
