I don't know why I was worrying about contract rollovers with Sierra Charts. It's a breeze.

You just copy the existing data file for your contract and then rename it to the new contract name and update your charts with the name of the new data file.

Having the tick data in a file rather than a database is a real bonus, though it does seem a bit outdated.

From a programming point of view, I also like the way that you can build up script files with your own indicators and strategies. It keeps them all in one place making them easy to backup and manage.

The more familiar I become with SC, the more I'm liking it.

this is roll over without adjusting your data method. You can also do a roll over but with adjusted back data.

I have started trying SC with rithmic today, it's really fast and has the historical data, but the dom depth doesn't work and there's not backfilling for bid ask data.
I will post this on SC forum to see if they will fix it.

How would you ever get HISTORICAL clean BID/ASK data from a broker supplied data feed like Rithmic?

my two cents.
I switched over into using SC about two months ago.
My computing skills from both a hardward and softward point of view are about 3 out of ten. So everything has to be learnt. My trading experiences are probably more along the 8 out of ten. For me SC rocks.
It looks like you can do most things required for auto trading and discretionary trading, and so far its been reliable.
I have hooked it up to IB (and they are not the most reliable) but leave it running feeding into IB during the week - still testing the whole system - making sure IB drops out, the feeds get messed up etc;
So far so good.

I am just trying to get into some more C++ coding.... so a while to go yet. I dont use a lot of indicators (pretty much zero - and the ones I use are simple) But everything can be built here. (My view of the markets is that you only make money by buying the things that go up and shorting those that go down - you dont need a bunch of magical indicators to do that, but thats only my opinion)
Someone put me onto another thing called autohotkeys (that I am yet to look at) but supposedly that can be used to build macros for those who like that sort of thing.

The point is, so far I would say, yes it looks clunky, but all I care about is if it works reliably.
Additionally, while it seems a steep learning curve, and it seems the info is hard to find. Its there. I am constantly finding, I need to re read things and realise the info is there - but in a compacted detail.
The forums are building the data base of info and the SC administrators are great in that they just say if something cant be done, or point you in the right direction. For me thats great, and is all thats required. they fix things, and implement things quickly - not to make things look good, but to make them work. (I dont use anything less than a 5min charts, or a 10 pip range bar (my personal preference so I dont know if SC falls down below this)
For me, SC is all I need now and I dont even look or think about NT or multicharts or tradestation......and that in itself saves a lot of time and worry

I have a feeling Sierracharts is getting rewarded for their efforts lately. Ninjatrader released some kind of a servicepack that they called version 7 and it took them a year to release it.

Sierrachart releases a new stable version every month, heck, they even call their betas 'stable' and release them every week or so.

I was hoping to post it only a bit later, but we are working really hard to fully integrate Rithmic to SierraCharts.
We will do testing all December and try the address all the issues that might arise as a result.
I have chosen a few of the wiz guys here who will get the test shortly, and would be able to share it.

I am excited to bring it to the community, and hope that some of you will like it.

As mike says "competition is good"!

None of those broker supplied feeds have "ticker plants" so it is one bad burst of data and your day (and CD information) is shot.......so the reliability issues will always be a crap shoot. Also, the ability to have clean and verified stored historical BID/ASK data from a "ticker plant" that can be loaded at anytime is critical for working with BID/ASK differential tools.....Footprints/GomLadders/CD candlesticks.

Once all these broker supplied data feeds add "ticker plants" and hold historical BID/ASK data that is verified then these type of feeds could be considered as a viable option.
