Can someone explain to me the business relationship between TransAct and Sierra Chart? There seems to be something there more than just "we're compatible". Or maybe I am just wrong. Just curious...

Mike

Mike, I heard from a very old transact customer that when they started programming sierracharts they had a hard time to get launched and even they put it in the market very cheap (like below $10 a month or so), transact needed some kind of charting program for their customers and it was one of the first deals sierrachart made. Apparently they only charged transact a few $$ per month per customer and transact included it for their customers.

That is also why the hardcore user base of sierracharts is still filled with transact customers. Most of them use the transact DOM and the charting from sierracharts.

I decided to take a trial. I like a lot of the 'core' things though the interface will take a bit of getting used to (as others have mentioned).

Edit: I found that there is a chartbook setup to plot this though it seems to have an expired symbol. Now just to figure out to change the symbol......and done. Rather simple actually!

I wonder can you plot cumulative delta out of the box or will I need to do some programing? Bidvolume vs AskVolume study seems closest but that is a histogram and resets each bar. I'd like to simply plot a candle that does not reset each bar. Cheers.

So this is the SC tape vs the Tradestation tape. It's technically "AT Charts" which is infinity but it still comes from SC and transacts

Sc on the left TS on the right. It's my first video ever using any tape of screen recording software so sorry about the quality

Thanks Luke I found out more or less as I posted, I guess you replied before I had a chance to edit my post

Actually taking apart how that workspace is set up is a useful learning experience of how things can be achieved.

Did you change your update interval? (see this post)

I pulled up time and sales for CL on SC, and it is updating dead on with the DOM.

To be honest, I do not understand why anyone would use time & sales windows to measure a feed.

Hey Mookie, so you upgraded to the ATcharts from Sierra as well through Infinity? Ever since the upgrade my feed via the charts and DOM lag at times. Very bad, especially during volatility. Today has been a nightmare for lagging and cost me to not even enter some trades as I had no idea what was going on. Let me know if your seeing the same or anyone else who has upgraded to this. Btw, I have tried both Modes and tinkered with the interval updates(ms).

I just watched your video Mook, I get the same thing exactly, happens on the whole feed like that so it's seen on charts & DOM as well. Broker claims nothing wrong. TransAct in past normally tries to blame your connection. You getting the same feedback? My ping times are low and rest of internet is flying while I get these lags.

Sounds like broker/feed issue.
