With OEC Trader 3.5 having been out for a while now, what is the verdict? For those who use or have experience with MC, it would be nice to hear how they differ...

Keeps getting better. In fact is equal to or better than Ninja. Need more stock trading tools and screeners though, but very solid for futures. Plus, its free...you can't argue with that - I'd def pay the same for OEC as Ninja.

That's great to hear, thank you. I'm currently getting acquainted with MCDT, but at some point I'll make some time to download and OEC Trader 3.5.

Does it offer anything with respect to backtesting? I'm guessing not, but figured I'd ask...

I'm on the 14 day trial with OEC now...

Does anyone else here (with OEC) also use MC? It seems that OEC Trader 3.5 and MC cannot be open at the same time, at least on the same computer, without MC issues. If others have success, then I suppose it's something unique to me or my set-up.

Something else I noticed for which I'm not sure of the reason. I've been paper-trading the ES in my TOS account for a few weeks. Twice now, including moments ago, I had the exact same standing buy limit order in both TOS and OEC (via MCDT). Each time these limit orders got filled first in TOS, the first time by a couple seconds, the most recent, minutes before the OEC fill. I'm guessing there must be a good reason or explanation. These are both paper accounts. I'm contemplating asking in the MC thread too. Thanks.

Yes, for live account, you can ask for a 2nd login/password for an independent connection to the same account. For a shared connection, you probably don't need a 2nd login/password, it should connect to the OEC Trader instead of OEC server directly. This is my understanding, but I never tried shared connection (I have a 2nd login/password).

Apparently OEC is running different data feeds live vs. demo, which wouldn't be a problem except they have different range bars between the two versions.

The live feed looks similar to a standard Ninja chart... the other demo feed looks like this, where multiple bars of the same range can print sequentially. It wouldn't bug me if they did this and told you about it, but when I'm trying to keep things in my trade plan consistent and I wake up a couple weeks back to find that the bars i'm trading off of have been erased and changed completely it kind of f's things up a bit ya know?

I trade off the demo and want my old range bars back!!!

Did you happen to get confirmation from OEC that their demo and live data feeds are different? I'm trying figure-out how or why an OEC demo account is getting standing limit order fills after a TOS paper account.

OEC will give you a second login but you don't need it with Sierra. In file, trade services set it to use a shared connection. Also, Sierra connects to OEC's server directly via api fwiw.
