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.

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.

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?
