Not sure why I am not able to get Quote in response to MarketDataRequest.

Here are the Sent and received messages:

2018.12.06 19:59:56.534 nquotes EURUSD,M1: ReceivedText : 8=FIX.4.4 9=96 35=W 34=2 49=cServer 50=QUOTE 52=20181207-03:59:53.825 56=icmarkets.3394382 57=TRADE 55=2 268=0 10=126

From Rules of engagement guide sent message format looks ok. Not sure what could be the porblem here.

I would appreciate if you could respond.

I just put these DataRequest in 500ms Timer Event and sending request every 500ms and now I am getting Quotes for 55=2. Is this the correct approach to get quotes? If so, 500ms is good time period or should it be faster. 

Please commnet on this.

Hi netread2004,

You should be sending a Market Data Request whenever you want to update your market data with new prices. Refresh rate is up to you even though I believe 500ms is a bit slow. You can try 100ms.
