You can use the DOM of Sierra Chart too. I just compared de CTS-T4 DOM with NT/CQG and noticed that they are identical! Later I will post a video.

Malvolio

Here is a short video which compares the DOM from CTS-T4 with NT7 (CQG data).
YouTube - NT CQG vs. CTS T4

By the way, you can get a 2 week trial at www.ctsfutures.com with live data.

I have read about the good data reliability and accuracy of CTS. Also, as I am currently doing a trial and very close to switching to Sierra Chart, it is a HUGE plus for me that using Sierra, I can execute server-side OCO orders. The only other broker that I know of that can do this is Interactive Brokers. To contrast, Rithmic allows native OCO orders, but only when the order is placed through the R|Trader platform.

I know CTS is more expensive, but due to numerous internet issues in the past, and due to the potential for any internet issue to happen in the future, I just don't want to take my chances any longer with local OCO orders (overnight anyway). I just can't sleep that well at night knowing that if my internet goes down, I could potentially (though unlikely) have naked market exposure.

So, who is using CTS, who is your broker, and how do you like it?

@josh, btw, I think Velocity Futures just signed a deal with CTS as well, so you should be able to get it through them now and use within Sierra.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Dude, you're making my mouth water, that's awesome.

Check out CTS's DOM:

Contract - CTS Wiki

I would hope that I could login to Sierra and their desktop client to use the DOM at the same time, and that orders would show up on both platforms at the same time. If so, that would be pure heaven.

Very cool. Keep us posted with what you find. All I can tell you about CTS and T4 is that it is very widely used by professionals, much like TT X_Trader. So if you go down that route I would be very interested in hearing about your full report/review, both on feed and platform. They also have some really nice mobile apps.

The only downside to CTS DOM is it lacks multiple target OCO.

I suppose one could just do several OCO orders though right?

Yes but its a bit clumsy if you're in a hurry. You could also use several instances of DOM to work a little more quickly. Though IMO it's a little stressful when trying to adjust targets quickly and accurately. This might not be a problem if you are more premeditated with your trades than I am.
