"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim

"For anyone considering using DTN.IQ for a data feed, my experience with the quality of data and the tech support has been very positive." - Comment from Public Forum
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob

"I am very pleased with the DTNIQ system for quotes and news." - Comment from Larry

CME Non-Professional Globex Data Package (replaces the CME Group Globex Exchange Fee Waiver Program)
What is the CME Non-Professional Globex Data Package:
This is a new exchange entitlement option offered by the CME Group exchange which allow customers who qualify as "Non-Professional"
to receive discounted access to a Globex only data from the CME, CBOT, Nymex and/or Comex. Effective March 1, 2014, this program replaces the previous "Exchange
Fee Waiver" program that was offered by the CME Group. Under this new program, Non-Professional traders who receive IQFeed data into a 3rd party application
that can execute trades can choose to receive Globex only data (includes the Eminis) for a lowered exchange fee as low as $2 per month per exchange.
The rules to qualify as a Non-Professional are quite simple:
If you are a Trader: You must meet the following criteria in order to qualify to receive the Non-Professional Globex
Scroll to the bottom of this page to check if your broker is listed as a qualified broker and make sure you
are using your IQFeed data subscription with one of the 3rd party applications that can execute trades through your broker.
Then, just contact your broker with your DTN IQFeed loginID and they will send DTN validation of your funded trading account. For exchange compliance, your software application
that is receiving IQFeed data must be able to trade directly through your broker.
- You must have a fully funded futures trading account with one of the qualified brokers listed below
- You must be using a 3rd party application that processes IQFeed data AND is able to execute trades through your broker
- You must be able to answer NO to all of the following questions:
- Are you currently registered or qualified with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)?
- Are you currently registered or qualified with any securities agency, any securities exchange, association or regulatory body, in the United States or elsewhere?
- Do you perform any functions that are similar to those that require an individual to register or qualify with the SEC, the CFTC, any other securities agency or regulatory body, any securities exchanges or association or regulatory body?
- Are you engaged to provide investment advice to any individual or entity?
- Are you engaged as an investment advisor (as defined in Section 202(a) of the Investment Advisors Act of 1940) or asset manager?
- Are you subscribing to the Service in your capacity as a principal, officer, partner, employee, or agent of any business or on behalf of any other individual?
- Do you receive Market Data for your business or any other entity?
- Do you use the capital of any other individual or entity in the conduct of your trading?
- Are you employed by an organization conducting professional activities involving buying or selling instruments (stocks, bonds, options, futures contracts, etc.) or is our organization exempt for U.S. securities laws (i.e. bank) that would otherwise require your registration?
- Do you conduct trading for the benefit of a corporation, partnership, or other entity?
- Have you entered into any agreement to share the profit of your trading activities or receive compensation for your trading activities?
- Are you receiving office space, and equipment or other benefits in exchange for your trading or work as a financial consultant to any person, firm or business entity?
- Is your account either billed or contracted under a business or organization?
If you don't see your Broker listed, give one of the Broker's on our list a call as they have shown interest in providing their customers the best overall service
and value to their customers. You can also have your broker give us a call and we would be happy to work to get them qualified to support this program.
Q: What does the Non-Professional CME Globex Data package get me?
A: If you qualify as a Non-Professional per the criteria outlined above, you can choose to receive access to CME Group Globex data (includes the Eminis) in real time at a reduced fee. Globex only data
packages are available from CME, CBOT, Nymex and Comex. You just pay the DTN IQFeed service
fees and the reduced fee Non-Pro Globex Data package fees. The rest of the IQFeed service will be unchanged. In other words, you will still get the fastest, most reliable, tick by tick data available.
You will still get real time news, over 500 market breadth/stats symbols updated every second and years of intraday historical data.
Q: How much does the Non-Professional CME Globex Data cost?
A: As long as you qualify for the Non-Professional CME Globex data package, you will receive reduced exchange fees of $2 per month per CME Group exchange for
level I data. Level II data is available for $12 per month per CME Group exchange. You can also receive all CME Group exchange's Globex data packaged together for $5 per month for Level I data or $32 for
Level II data.
Q: What if I use software that doesn't provide the ability to trade through my broker?
A: Unfortunately it is an exchange requirement that your software interface that utilizes IQFeed
data must be able to execute trades to your broker. If the software you use doesn't have an order entry interface, or that order
entry interface doesn't work with your broker, the exchange will not approve the exchange fee waivers for your account.
Q: What if I want data other than CME Group Globex data?
A: No problem! You just need to pay the exchange fees for other exchanges or non-globex data and
you will receive this data in real time as well. As always, any data you don't choose to receive in real time will still
be available to you delayed at no extra charge (unless the exchange charges a delayed exchange fee).
Q: When did this program go into effect?
A: This program replaced the CME Exchange Fee waiver program on March 1, 2014. Customer's who participated in the CME Exchange
Fee waiver program as of February 28, 2014 were grandfathered in and will continue to receive fee waivers through the end of 2014.
Q: How is this program different from the original CME Exchange Fee Waiver program?
A: On March 1, 2014 the CME Group terminated the Exchange Fee Waiver program in exchange for the new Non-Professional Globex Data program.
Instead of completely waiving fees, the exchange will charge a reduced fee as compared to the full CME Group exchange fees. To qualify under the old Exchange Fee Waiver program, you only needed
to have a funded trading account and utilize IQFeed with a 3rd party application that also was able to execute trades. Under the new Non-Professional Globex Data program, this requirement
is still in force, but you must also be able to answer the Pro/Non-Pro questions as a Non-Professional in order to qualify.
Q: What if my Broker won't go through the quick Qualification Process with DTN IQFeed?
A: Unfortunately we must have cooperation from your Broker in order to provide you exchange fee waivers.
In all honesty, there is no reason for a Broker to not do this. If they absolutely refuse, we would suggest finding a Broker
who is interested in satisfying your specific requirements (which should include providing you cost effective and professional trading tools).
Q: Which 3rd party software do I need to use to qualify for Exchange Fee Waivers?
A: Here is a list of software the CME Group has approved due to their ability to execute trades through a qualifying broker. Hopefully this list will
grow as the CME Group approves additional partner products.
- Wave 59
- Sierra Chart
- Agena Trader
- Ensign Windows
- Option Workshop
- Market Delta
- Nirvana Systems
- Seer Trading
Q: Which Brokers should I open an account with in order to receive the Non-Professional CME Globex data package?
A: Here is a list of Brokers which have gone through the quick process to become
qualified to validate your funded trading account with IQFeed. If you wish to qualify for Non-Professional fees, please contact
one of these brokers and ask them to submit your Trader Account Verification to IQFeed:
Q: Can I receive the discounted Non-Professional CME Globex data package if I'm trading through Interactive Brokers (IB)?
A: Yes! Due to high demand from IB customers who wanted
a high quality data option to trade off of, we developed our own plugin to validate your IB Trading account and qualify you for the Non-Professional CME Globex data package.
Please review the IQFeed Waiver Plugin Instructions for information on how to validate your funded trading account as an IB customer.
