DTN/IQ Options Quotes Stopped

August 2, 2007

Options quotes simply stopped for me on DTN/IQ sometime during the last week (I was away). a DTN representative stated:

We ... have had problems with recent increases in market volume causing delays on our servers and we had to shut the options off on half of our servers to help with the increase. We are hoping to have everything back to normal early next week but it is not definite yet.

The representative gave the following workaround to insure that I was using a server that still had options quotes:

Put the following line in your windows hosts file using a text editor like Notepad, not a word-processor: login.interquote.com

Then stop and restart IQFeed. I found I needed to stop and restart Ensign.
