IQML's IQFeed-Matlab connectivity
“Simply put, IQML just works. Having struggled with Matlab’s data feed toolbox and many frustrated support calls, I found the IQML product. What a night and day experience! Not only does the product allow you to easily access the entire array of IQfeed’s utility as soon as you download it, the documentation and support have been superior to the premium enterprise-level systems that I have worked with in the past. If you use his IB-Matlab product, IQML is the perfect companion. This is absolutely the gold standard for working with market data.”

– Albert Zhang, professional trader and partner, Auric Investments, USA

“Yair has been doing a fantastic job implementing the IQfeed API for Matlab, a challenging API which needed some thorough testing at the beginning (which I was part of, being one of the first clients). The product has become mature and excellent for algo development for traders who don’t mind to work in details. Many features are making IQML computationally attractive and competitive with regards to other options. Mostly, Yair support is first class and allows to digest the little subtleties of the IQfeed API. With Yair being supportive and flexible in terms of improvements, updating IQML regularly to fix bugs and implement the latest API features, I strongly recommend the use of IQML.”

“We have been cooperating with Yair for 3 years now and he has always been professional and efficient. Regarding in particular the IQFeed-Matlab interaction, he was able to deeply understand our needs and to quickly consign us perfectly tuned codes, granting us the possibility of exploiting the maximum potential of these two platforms combined.”

– Stefano Peron, Chief Investment Officer, Emergent Quant, Italy

“Before IQML, I spent an inordinate amount of time working on code to consistently retrieve IQFeed data via Matlab, with limited success. IQML works flawlessly, allowing me to focus on strategy development.”

– Jeff Busse, Emory University, USA

“It would surprise you how many systems out there are still legacy-like. They seem to work with a few data-points as advertised, but once you want to scale up the whole thing you hit the wall. And then comes IQML for Matlab: Works out of the box like a charm; Uses parallel execution; And with a few wrapper lines of Matlab code I can send the data I need to a database. This has enabled me to get my project up and running in a fraction of the planned time. Yair has been very helpful and responds to requests very fast and what is even more important, he fixes it!”

– Georgios Karas, owner, Stock Money Flows, Netherlands

“I find IQML intuitive and easy to use. *** started to build something like this but stopped and left us with nothing. They have a lot more adapters than they have documentation for but they are mostly non-functioning basic connections to the third party softwares. I really love your simple intuitive interface! IQML blends perfectly into my MATLAB environment. I am getting 40 quotes per 10 ms using the real time method. The time and careful consideration you spent on IQML’s development show clearly. I will definitely help spread the word about your products!”

“IQML, a robust and seamless interface between Matlab and DTN IQFeed’s realtime financial market data, is the latest automated trading offering from Yair Altman. Yair is a leading authority on Matlab and the author of two books devoted to Matlab’s technical intricacies. His IB-Matlab software, which interfaces Matlab with Interactive Broker’s trading and data platforms, has for many years earned the number one spot among client reviewed third party software on Interactive Broker’s web site.

IQML builds upon the capacities of IB-Matlab by leveraging the more robust data feed of IQ-Feed to meet institutional level trading expectations for financial market data coverage, low latency, and easy reference. Having personally struggled with Matlab’s Datafeed Toolbox and Trading Toolbox to the point I doubted Matlab’s viability as a trading platform, I have been overjoyed to find that IB-Matlab and IQML provide the missing pieces of the puzzle. The interfaces do not require any understanding of the associated API’s and do provide intuitive and easy to understand Matlab commands and references to the Interactive Brokers and IQ-Feed platforms. In addition to rock solid code performance, both products are accompanied by robust documentation and Yair is available to personally tailor their implementation to client needs. Well done, Mr. Altman!”
