Not sure what "proper" is, but I have been able to get it to work and it looks like my CD on other platforms. It is kludgy, in that you have to build it up on a 1-tick chart in the background, and then apply it as an overlay on another chart, but it does work (at least for how I use it). I was using the IQ feed, and loaded two weeks of data. The actual values of course are wrong (it is not the actual long/short interest), but the differences seemed to correct which is what you care about. It updates in real time, and loads the same values when I restart the platform.

What I was saying is any charting that can't process sub-second data will never be able to have a fully clean Cumulative Delta plot (proper BID/ASK data READ needs to be done at sub-second level). If SC is able to read bid/ask data at sub-second level connected to DTN.IQ then all should be good to go.....so the question is, does SC have the capability to read data at sub-second level?

If it does now have sub-second capability added then I will start to take a look at testing out SC again (full 30 day test to compare to Inv RT/DTN.IQ).

Just found out from my Velocity Rep (@Dale Box) that Velocity is adding Sierra Chart to their line up and it will be "free" (bundled in commission), like NinjaTrader, X_Trader etc etc.

The commission structure will be up on the website soon but Dale told me it will be a good bit cheaper than NinjaTrader, something around 3.30 R/T on ES.

Great news for Sierra users

Mike

I've been using Sierra with Velocity's FIX adapter for about 5 months, since Sierra added a TT FIX interface. Velocity did not officially support Sierra then, but would still work with me on any issue. This means you don't have to wait...

I trade to be profitable, not to smile when I click a button because it's fancy.



Very pleased w SC now when they have fixed the Market and Volume Profile issues.
Very responsive to demands and excellent support!

Can live with the delta as is - don't think I would do better trades w sub second delta...??? or do you think it will make a difference fulcrum?

The combination SC / OEC makes a very cost efficient combination w no datafeed charge and low commissions!

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.
6)

Well, the key here is using IQ Feed, which delivers the data pre-parsed with the bid/ask, so the timestamps are not meaningful (IQ uses second timestamps, but is the feed of choice). Everyone is focused on sub-second timestamps because they are trying to use inferior feeds/platforms, and then piece the data back together.

It may not be perfect, but I was merely pointing out that SC is one of the few platforms that can actually pull it off.

I would like to see an ES chart from 08:30 first tick to 3:15 last tick with Delta and then I can do a quick look and see how SC is doing these days with Cumulative Delta. If anyone can help out there that would be great.....I would LOVE to see another charting platform have Delta on board (and functioning properly).

I am also intrigued by SC (coming from NT). I installed it yesterday and my first impressions are as follows:
- dated interface...man, that's old school..
- creating a new chart by having to open some file was weird...
- great speed in everything from loading charts to applying indicators, etc.
- seems feature-rich just based on some of the nice features that I saw in indicator settings
- probably a very steep learning curve in the development language (it's true that it makes NinjaScript looks like pseudo language). Transitioning all my custom programming from NT to SC would be painful.
Does it support Zen-Fire or Kinetick? I couldn't find a way to connect to these providers?
Thanks!

Sierra now provides a Rithmic (Zen-fire's source) interface, though still in beta.

SierraChart is a full-featured, highly flexible, extremely powerful, continually updated, exceptionally-priced, well-documented, fast-response-supported, very stable platform. I recently switched from NinjaTrader, an unstable memory-leaking resource hog.

The dated interface is not a deal-breaker for me. It's fast, light on resources, and solid. I've never had SC crash in the 5 months I've used it. Every platform has its quirks, but Sierra's pluses far out-balance its minuses, IMHO.

Here is an example on my screen setups I use, so you non-sierrachart users have an idea. Everything is possible, it's just more clean, fast and to the point. You might call it crisp and neat....and correct.

Also support doesn't say to me : re-install sierracharts, or can't reproduce it, they have some kind of a guy over there working day and night and answering all questions with an ANSWER. Wow. Kudos to Sierracharts. I'm learning their DOM and chart trader so I can use it to the max.
