Hi LukeG, yes initially there was a thread about a few people having issues but lately I haven't seen much about it. Maybe you know of a link where there is another discussion about it as I'm curious. Today I kept refreshing that board in hopes that many others were noticing the same thing but no one posted anything. Today was brutal as far as lags go, sometimes over 30 seconds. The broker acts like nothing is wrong, Transact support acts like nothing is wrong and it's on your end, thus nothing really has changed when you cry help from them. All I can see is people just finding better Brokers elsewhere.
Hey Omaha, yes, as long as you trade through the charts with Sierra then it's .05 a side with TT feed. Definitely the cheapest option going. I trade quick and find it to difficult using Sierra alone. Plus I like using the the DOM off another computer just in case one is lagging or something. I mean, I had to adopt this method using my current broker for obvious reasons, lol. I ended up liking the 2 mouse thing though. Rithmic has Rtrader so I can trade off that DOM I figure.

I know a couple of people that really like OE however I'm pretty sure OE data is not good enough for volume@bid/ask work. I think Velocity are based on a TT engine. I wonder how there (TT) data is nowadays? It is always been pretty timely but the quality of there bid/ask info has been questioned at times.
As an aside I have been pretty unimpressed by Optimus' service... one line (anonymous) answers from someones phone not only that they are not wholly accurate or complete. For example I was told Rithmic does not support US markets whereas in reality Optimus don't on the Rithmic engine.
Certainly liking Sierra, has some solid core features.

Can someone point me to where cumulative delta volume tool is in Sierra? I want to add it to my chart, preferably with a delta bar built on continuous data (like what was discussed in the recent CD webinar). It's my understanding SC can do this, but as a novice SC user I haven't found where or how...
