Hi Mike,

Iíd like to see 2 minute charts! 5 minute charts can move pretty far before you see an entry signal and 1 minute charts donít allow enough read time! I know Iím unusual!

You can set the charts to ANY periodicity you want, based on volume, number of trades, any time period you can dream of

I've been a Sierra user since about 2013, and they have fixed most of the issues I have had with it in that time. My 2 remaining big wishlist issues are :

1. some basic dom trade buttons on the dom instead of as an attached or unattached panel, which takes up much too much space on the screen

2. being able to set a chartbook to a specific window/monitor as a group, instead of individual charts. This way I could use a number of chartbooks to flip through without having to open and close them or minimize individual charts. ATAS platform handles this nicely

FWIW, I also agree about the lack of basic options functionality in Sierra, but to be fair, many other futures platforms do not have this and they have never promised anything more than the ability to call up a particular call or put in a chart or dom and trade it.

Point 2) is really important. One way to get around it is to create a button in your main window to hide all detached charts and one to restore them. This way once you have settled your charts on different desktops you just reduce/restire all of them at once.
This solves the problem, but of course it would be easier to be able to "detach" workbooks or to have a conceptual framework that stands between workbook and chart, so it could work as a container for charts.

One Feature that I would include in Sierra is the ability to mask your account number.
I like to make videos about trading and I am also open to trade live but I don't want to show everyone my account number, so at the end I keep all videos for myself.
It would be more than enough to mask the last 3-4 digits or to rename the account in some way.

This is a feature that users suggested to Sierra several times, but they just decide that it's not worthy. Many users suggested also the same feature, but Sierra has it's own way of deciding what it's useful and what is not.
For instance they think that TST and other funding firms are scammers and they just decide to drop them. I think in the long run Sierra will lose thousands of users. They have a great platform but they just don't care about the customer. In the meanwhile other platforms catch up.

FYI, regarding the SC Order-Routing Service/TT Order-Routing issues, I read this from the SC engineering team on the support board from Tuesday, February 16:


Quoting 
We will make an announcement later today with what we plan to do to avoid this issue in the future. Short answer is we are close to releasing our our own direct CME order routing and we will make a priority to get this finished. We have to put TT behind us as quickly as possible.

And yes we know we are slow with getting this out, but the testing procedure through the CME was not an easy thing to go through and we have to go through it again because the first test was through their test environment and not certification. And we also have other priorities.

We have made a lot of major accomplishments with Sierra Chart in the last year none of which are very easy. We do work very very hard with getting things done.

We will do our best to get our direct CME routing out in about 60 days.
