1. The total number of symbols in your IQFeed database must NOT exceed your IQFeed subscription limit (by default 500 symbols)

2. You can not use more than 5 million ticks/bars per symbol due to problem in IQConnect.


One-time setup

IMPORTANT: IQFeed provides unfiltered data. This means that no tick is filtered out therefore you may see a lot of bad ticks. This will change when IQFeed implements bad tick filter.

If you don't have IQFeed CONNECTION MANAGER already installed you have to install it first.
