    Looking to get streaming level 2 quotes, possibly the order book? Anyone have any luck with this? I'm using Tradier right now which I like but their stream quotes is basically just when a bid or ask gets changed so the underlying quote. I would love to know how to get the whole order book, or at least similar to how platforms show their level 2.
  2. Have you checked whether Interactive Brokers has this for you?

    R|Api is the best choice. Simple, stable, fast. At the end of february 2018, thay promised MBO (level3) data will be available. IQFeed also is very good, but a little more expensive, and one also has to be familiar with winsock.
    If you need institutional quality data, QuantHouse, dxFeed..
