market data: get only msg=W, no msg=X


I request market data with msg(35)=V and MDUpdateType(265)=1(true) for incremental refresh,

but I get only msg(35)=W and no msg(35)=X. I need msg=X to get the size MDEntrySize, not only the price.

I use IC Markets. They only support incremental refresh (265=1).

Thanks for suggestion

Full market data request: 8=FIX.4.4|9=135|35=V|49=xx|56=xx|57=QUOTE|262=xx|263=1|264=0|265=1|267=2|269=0|269=1|146=1|55=1

(same result if 264=1)

Hi ertul,

When you subscibe to market data, the first message you will receive will be a full refresh followed by incremental refresh messages. The first message needs to be a full refresh message so that you have something to apply the increments on.
