Does anyone know how to connect IQFeeds with Matlab. It seems the datafeed toolbox only accepts Reuters, Bloomberg, Yahoo and one or two more. I've been looking all over the place for a Matlab toobox or some code because I'm using IQFeeds. It's weird because on here I've read many posts of people talking about their IQFeeds into MAtlab as if its just normal and their question instead focusses on the API conncetion with IB or something. Can anyone please help me since I feel totally on my own here?

you could create your own socket code to connect to it. You need to have developer rights to get an understanding of the socket api. They have said they would come up with something "prebuilt" on the next release of matlab 2012b (2nd half of year)

thxs sma, yes i've also heard perhaps Q4 for 2012b. I assume these guys probably then wrote their own when always talking about it. dam wish they can share it otherwise it will take me some time or just have to wait till Q4 – jake123 Jul 6 '12 at 7:11
Perhaps one can use the DSP Toolbox wihhc has the ability to to import UDP packets for an IP port. Any thoughts guys? – jake123 Jul 13 '12 at 9:57
