Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thanks for reminding me of deepdiscount, I knew I was missing some. I'm curly testing out CTS on my phone, do you use it on your desk top too or just mobile.. is there a way to change the chart to something other than 1 minute? For the life of me I can't find the setting. The dom is a bit of a real estate hog for each price line. I probably need a bigger phone (mine is nice and tiny) or get the tablet out.

I figured out how to change time frame in CTS charts. My phone is definitely too small for the app. It had some lines overlapping, but I was able to change time frames once I realized what was missing.

I'm running 2 instances of Sierra. The first one is connected to the TWS from Interactive and the second one to IQFeed.
Interactive, as Mike said, provides the mobile app, in sierra you have volume profile and all the stuff you said you need.
I think it is a very flexible combination that combines the best data feed, a powerful software and a stable broker.

Thanks! I agree.
I just saw a screenshot of Sierra Charts DOM and that is exactly what i'm looking for, but they don't have a mobile platform. I guess I would use a different platform with a DOM to close in case of emergency. ?? Mobile trading is my last resort, but I have needed it.


This should work:

Sierra Charts for the software platform
CQG for the datafeed
CQG Mobile for the mobile backup solution
Optimus Futures, Discount Futures and Commodity*Brokerage. E-Mini S&P Brokerage or Futures Broker | AMP Futures Trading AMP for the broker.

Note: that at least with AMP, if your data feed is CQG you get CQG Mobile for free ie no additional platform cost. In addition, if you want to take advantage of it, AMP have a deal where you get SC package 3 for free or package 5 at a reduced monthly cost.
