I have some users that do not see the full 10 level deep on Rithmic. I tested the API on its native app R Trader and I see more than 10. Is there a feature on Sierra that limits as to how deep you want to see the level of the DOM? Rithmic says its Sierra, Sierra says its Rithmic. Can you please post your DOM here? I would like to show Sierra and Rithmic that some users do get it.

Thanks,

There is a substantial risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

As far as I know, there is no specific setting other than the 1 tick general setting in SC for the intraday data feed.

I've posted a side by side of R | Trader lain over SC's MDHG that I was able to synch up pretty close.

Hope it helps.

There is this setting under Global Settings -> Chart DOM Settings;

But I think it was 20 levels by default, so if someone is getting less than that then it might be another issue.

Thank you for reaching out and showing this. SC did point out to us that the new version does have this ability https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/DataSourceSettings.php#MaximumMarketDepthLevels

I truly appreciate your help on this!

CTS Advanced Low Cost Connection Model

Look no further than the CTS Advanced Low Cost Connection with Sierra Chart. https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/CTS_T4.php#LowCostConnectionModel_Overview

I've used SC with CQG for years and was finding the server side bracket orders annoying as when the parent fills the child server bracket orders do not adjust for slippage, meaning if I get a fill with slippage (say on a stop order entry) the target will be shorter and my stop larger.

SC manages the orders on their server which has 1MS latency to CTS so its effectively an exchange gateway. This means the orders behave as you would expect, are rock solid, NEVER lock, sizes adjust perfectly on bracket orders with partial fills, the list goes on.

Its $10 a month, .1 per side, and you have to pay for SC data which is rock solid. The extra cost you will save in multitudes with robust server side order handling.

CTS direct to SC is a nightmare (and is well documented by SC who recommend strongly not to use it) with server side orders. But with the Advanced Connection Model it is truly a tank.

Hi
Wondering about Sierra but its hard to get complete cost
I only want to use sierra for volume profile charting and i dont need trading at the moment. ( maybe later )
I live in EU and use CFD instead.

With Infinity, you have to make a minimum of 10 trades per month for them to pay for the platform cost, but you're going to pay for the data feed either way.

All of the pricing for Sierra Charts is listed on the SC site and to use MP / VP you'll need package # 5 and a data feed. The SC data feed is rebranded barchart data and is quite good as I used it in the past.

If you won't satisfy the 10 trades/month with Infinity Futures you could open an account with AMP (500$ minimum) and pay you'll get SC package 3 for free (no market profile or footprint) or package 5 (MP and footprint) for 25$/month. No inactivity fees.

Just another option which is the one I use.
