Sierra Chart's new data feed......

Is anyone else using SC's new Futures Data Feed? I've been using it for 3 weeks now. It is a great feed. DTN/CQG quality. I just wanted to bring this up, because I haven't seen it mentioned here.

I have been using SC data feed for 3 weeks now too. I agree, it is very good. I have been testing it side by side with IQFeed and couldn't notice any disadvantage.

They were experiencing some minor problems with some package loss but it seems to be resolved now.

So, I guess I will be unsubscribing IQFeed by the end of this week...

Is AMP/TTnet the best for execution/low commissions when using the new Sierra Chart Futures feed?

Checking in again on this, do you still like it? How exactly did you test it side by side?

AMP TT net is working perfect for me with Sierra
I use AMP cqg and now rithmic as of this week with Multicharts

Sierra never slows, locks or even hiccups. good combo in my opinion

Yes, i am still liking SC Data feed. I don't have IQFeed anymore. The way I tested the data feeds side by side was using two SC instances, each one with one Data feed (IQFeed and SC data feed), using the same charts. SC data feed is at least as good as IQFeed, sometimes even slightly faster...

Nevertheless, SC team has been introducing some improvements for the last two weeks which caused me some minor issues after installing the latest versions but it seems to be resolved now.

SC futures feed features

The SC futures feed appears to timely and accurate, at least compared to IqFeed and IB data.

The interesting thing about the SC Futures feed is that it is different from all other feeds that can be used with SC, since it can and must be run in the same instance of Sierra Chart as your trade service.

This is mostly good:
1) SC automatically maps from the SC symbols to the trade service symbols.
2) Quote boards work, which is not true of remote feeds.
3) ASCIL can automatically open charts which is not true of remote feeds.

It is slightly bad since it does not appear to be possible to run the SC futures feed in a different instance of SC, which can be nice for running multiple feeds and keeping the data feed separate from the trading strategies. Also, it is a little worrisome that SC appears to be singling out their feeds as the only feeds that will truly work in an integrated way (QuoteBoards, ASCIL, ...).

SC says it will add equities in the next couple of months. Presumably, they will eventually integrate their Forex feed so it works like the futures feed. Perhaps, they will add options and all the rest of the world's data, so no other feeds will be wanted.

Yes, I am still liking it. I have only used two other data feeds, Rithmic and CTS. In my opinion, both pale in comparison as far as reliability. I just don't have any problems, ever.

I am trialling SC at the moment, but I need to have server side bracket and OCO order capability. SC have advised me that this is available through CTS. What trading service do you use with Sierrachart and their data feed? Do you have server side OCO order capability now, that you no longer use CTS?
