Hi, Mike,

Unfortunately, I do not seem to have access to the thread you mention.

Sierra Chart Historical Data Service is different than the one I mention. The one I mean is here:

Sierra Chart Help Details - How to Access Sierra Chart Historical Intraday Futures Data (Backfill Data)

This one has tick by tick data on some major futures contracts.

Thanks,
Paladin

There seems to be some confusion over their historic data....well in my mind at least. It does seem like they have two one from barchart.com and a 'quality' one from their own servers using Rithmic data that includes bid/ask but only goes back 30 days. I might be right off track though.

I contacted Sierra Chart regarding the backfill futures data, and basically they said that it's not perfect or guaranteed, but should be good enough for most. So it depends on what you need. The good news is that you can always buy historical tick data that you trust completely and import it into Sierra Chart. I intend to try Sierra's simulator/market playback. It seems that their particular set-up for that type of training is better than many others.

Interesting. I like to know where the data is coming from, I guess that is my overbearing and controlling side shining through, so just a "it should be good enough" answer isn't good enough for me

Maybe they can answer it next week as we're having a Sierra Chart webinar next Thr the 17th. Details to come soon.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Indeed. They seem to verge on evasive about this.

I think SC's replay functionality is superb. I like that I don't need to record the days action. I can just open up a chart scroll to the bar I want to replay from and hit replay and away you go.

I have tried replay on both Ninja and OEC. Both require you to record that days action. When I last tried OEC's replay functionality it would consistently freeze.

Yes, for me, replay function with simulator is a must. And to be able to do it with imported historical tick (or end of day) data is another requirement, which is the problem I have with NinjaTrader.

Sierra Chart is one of the four platforms that I am aware of that meet all the requirements. (The others are Trade Navigator, Ensign, Investor RT/Market Delta). But that's a topic for another thread.

Regarding the mysterious backfill futures data, I think it would be too much to expect that it would be guaranteed. Just look at CME data mine, CQG Data Factory, TickData or other historical data vendors, and see how much they charge.

I suppose that someone who has at least some some stored data from a reliable source, like IQFeed, could compare it to the backfill data to see just how good it is (or not). When I start my Sierra Chart trial, I will try to compare it to the little reliable data that I have stored.

Does anyone know if I can superimpose a moving average from a 5 min chart onto a different chart?
