Yes, sierra supports bid/ask volume analysis like cumulative delta. You should look at sierra's info online to find out which data providers provide what type of backfill. You will be glad you switched to Sierra. The guys at Ninja are nice, but Sierra is a professionally done program that has real built-in tools, and does not require numerous patchwork add-ons to be functional (though if you want to wait another few years for NT8 to be released and become stable and still be way behind SC, go for it ) -- and this is coming from a guy who has a lifetime NT license.

Josh thanks a lot. My hopes are still alive because I really like the Cumulative Delta with bid/ask. I checked Sierra and found that they do not service CQG. May I ask what data provider you use, that would give me some type of direction that I can look into. Once again thanks for your help.

Thanks
Hector

Your hopes:

"What happens currently, is that I open my chart and none of the historical information is back filled, only the forward real time information. I wanted to switch to Sierra Charting services and was wondering if anyone uses Sierra and if they are able to get the Cumulative Delta with the bid/ask. If so may I ask how you configuring your input and what services make up the configuration. It may not be possible but I thought someone here in the room may use Sierra."

I have been using Sierra Chart for years with DTN IQFeed and I love it. IQFeed have 120 days of historical bid/ask and the CD is working just fine, not to mention the support and update policy of Sierra Chart. Do yourself a favor and try them out. I'd gladly switch brokers if I had to any time of day

EDIT: forgot to mention that the product is very stable so don't expect to get the same number of crashes you get with IRT or MD - let alone the damaged databases because of those crashes.

I use CTS, also have used IQFeed which is your best bet for cheapest and overall best bang for your buck if bid/ask accuracy is important to you. If you have a Rithmic based broker then they are also very accurate and fast.

According to the Sierra website, Optimus Futures is the only Rithmic broker that offers historical bid/ask data.
Sierra Chart - Rithmic Platform Service

CTS data is about $1 more per round trip than 'free' broker feeds, but IQFeed is a flat monthly rate. Depending on your trading volume, this difference in rate structure could affect your bottom line.

I use Velocity Futures with TT feed, and the ES commission is $3.62 round trip. The TT data is fast and reliable for trade execution, but terrible for bid/ask studies. Combine it with IQFeed for data and you have a great combination.

If you are thinking of changing to a Rithmic/Zenfire broker to use Sierra Chart, you'll want to be aware of this:

Tom would you mind re-posting that as its own thread here? I think it deserves more attention.

Yes, they deleted the thread, for some reason.

It was asking Rithmic/Zenfire users to post whether they placed trades from Sierra Chart or from their broker's DOM.

Apparently SC was informed they would incur large fees since a supposed majority do not trade from Sierra, and SC is unable to verify this. Maybe they pulled it because of a misunderstanding.
