I have to say the Sierra Chart Engineering response is strange, although they obviously want you to buy their data.

A long time ago I used a broker that used Gain data, then I used TradeStation. When I first started with Tradovate, they did not offer a connection to SierraChart, so I used Sierra with IQFeed. Since Tradovate has offered the SierraChart conection, I have used that, and that data service has been the most reliable I have ever used, by a lot.

Of course, that's my experience only.

Thanks for the feedback (Here, they advise to use their TT order routing over CQG, not their data).

Sierra continues to take steps away from CQG, following failure reports.

For those who achieve a stable reliable order routing at Tradovate w/ SC, are you using CQG FIX or CQG WebAPI ?

Notwithstanding the above mentioned, users should request SC to integrate directly with the Tradovate API to avoid unnecessary CQG connection fee and extra commissions per side

I still use them and all of my earlier comments in this thread still apply. I am a happy customer.

Biggest drawback is the charting. They are adding capabilities, but slowly. Of course if you can program JavaScript you can do anything you want. But as a non programmer I use Sierra for charts. Tradovate allows you to use their CQG data feed in Sierra for $12/month.
