When you are not using Sierra Chart yet, I strongly advice attending this webinar.

I have been using NinjaTrader quite a while and a few weeks ago tried Sierra just to see what it had to offer. And then I fell in love!


Why?

1. Much better support of volume based indicators
2. Better handling of multiple data feeds. E.g. I use IB and IQFeed. I don't subscribe to Russel indices with IQ because I rarely trade them, the IB feed suffices. With Ninja I was not able to have IQ as my primary feed and have Russel from IB. With Sierra I am.
3. The spreadsheet functionality. Want to know the average price movement on Wednesdays during the Months of November till April? Open a spreadsheet study and in 10 minutes max you have the answer.
4. Backtesting facilities. You don't have to download replay data on a per day basis. You can jump back and forth during testing. With Ninja you can't.
5. and I can go on and on and on......



Sierra charts really rocks!
