SC and TD Ameritrade

Iím new with Sierra Charts. Iím trying to use SC with TD. When I load the charts on SC, the initial data loads but then it doesnít update after the initial load. Iíve tried setting the data/trade service to Sc data and TD. Both the same. I have paid for the SC data package. Anyone experience this problem?

From the SC TDA page:

"Futures trading and real-time futures market data is *not* supported with the interface that TD Ameritrade provides to Sierra Chart and other programs. "

"Notice: The API (application program interface) that Sierra Chart uses to TD Ameritrade is an API from TD Ameritrade which is not actively supported and maintained by TD Ameritrade any longer. There potentially could be some issues encountered which we may not be able to help with or resolve and we will make no special effort to assist with. You may not be able to even connect to TD Ameritrade at some future point in time and therefore TD Ameritrade at some future point in time will no longer be supported.

For the time being it is acceptable to use TD Ameritrade as a supported Trading service when you want to receive real-time CME data from the Sierra Chart Real-Time and Historical Exchange Data Feed.

The TD Ameritrade service is provided as is and is no longer maintained by Sierra Chart and any technical problems encountered, may not receive any technical help from us. It is available to be used as is."

So it sounds like you can place orders from Sierra Chart and route them through TDA as your broker, but the real time data you view will need to be provided by SC or some other source.

oh to clarify, no futures trading:

"The interface that TD Ameritrade provides for trading is not regarded as a high quality interface for trading.
It is acceptable to trade with TD Ameritrade on Sierra Chart for light occasional trading in stocks/equities."

"Additionally, only stock/equity trading is supported. You cannot trade futures, or Forex markets. This is a limitation of the TD Ameritrade API they provide Sierra Chart."
