I used NT for several years. I did a trial of Sierra when I decided to study market profile. had it not been for that, I might never have known that Sierra runs flawlessly in comparison to NT. It takes 50% or less computer resources to run Sierra, and now 9 months into it have yet to experience any crash, data lag, or any other issue that would occasionally occur in Ninja on the same machines.

The more I got into it, the more I liked it. Little things that are not necessarily debate worthy, but in a nutshell Sierra is much easier to customize.

So, to me the Sierra/Zen-Fire issue has only one direction if I had to choose; to find another data service and/or broker. I am going to see what happens as it gets closer, and have no pressing need to trade in the coming holiday week anyway, so maybe another week will give more info to move forward on.

As I can see it is very critical for SC Team

Quoting 
that trading and data service providers provide open and clearly documented basic communication protocols. The most well-established protocol is FIX ...

It allows to control what exactly happens when things are going wrong.

It is very critical for them in order to provide as >stable and reliable solution< as possible for traders.
This is the policy they want to follow.

-- CTS T4 has FIX-based API
-- OEC has FIX-based API
-- CQG has FIX-based API
-- TT has FIX-based API
-- Rithmic has FIX-based API

Ask Zen-Fire to provide a FIX-based API and SC Team will be able to use it with no problem.

ps: if you feel comfortable and safe in this business you are in danger, imho

The more deeper I look in the whole situation, the clearer it becomes that the mistake is on Mirus side. If they donīt fix it I will have to find new broker and datafeed. I will see how quickly they react tomorrow or the days after.

I am just wondering who had the "great idea" in Mirus to do all the changes during Christmass when everybody is on hollidays and canīt react.

IMO this whole Zenfire debacle is NT + Mirus forming a closer partnership together in forming a complete trading platform.

I wouldn't be surprised the reason NT was so fast to update to the new API was they had early information.

TY GaryD,

I agree with that 100%

I am not so sure Rithmic will be supported much longer at Sierra,

because of this statement from Sierra:

As far as Rithmic and Sierra Chart goes, if Rithmic does not want to continue to have Sierra Chart users, we will offer them to use the Sierra Chart market data feed instead of the Rithmic one in order to reduce bandwidth expenses. At this point, everything is OK. We just want to make sure there is not going to be a future problem by making sure that people who are using Rithmic are actually trading.


Post - Support Board - Sierra Chart

The key is to have a good broker-datafeed.
I dont understand why Sierra does not see the advantages for them and for their customers.

This is not because of Sierra but because of Rithmic.

Since Sierra Chart already supports Rithmic, we will not be dropping support for it.

I concur with the above.

I'm in the same boat as everyone else here, with Mirrus for many years, used to use Ninja but SC provides things Ninja doesn't. Couldn't care less who's at fault, just need to move on.

I'm considering Global Futures with OEC data on Sierra Charts. Anyone have any experience with OEC data? (not interested in their charting platform) On the plus side OEC servers hold OCO orders so you don't have to worry about losing your internet connection in the middle of a trade. On the minus side, you can only have data for 5 instruments running at a time.
