Now in SC-TT instance, you can open charts with data updated by the IQfeed instance.

Great! But can I use chart trader and have accurate cumulative delta, that is the million dollar question.

I think you can. You build your normal chart without DOM using the IQ data in SC-TT instance (chart1). In this chart, use a correct price multiplier so that the chart will be displayed same as TT format.

Then open a TT chart with the chartDOM (chart2). Now, overlay the chart1 onto chart2 and display it as the <Main Price Graph> so that the chart graph displayed in chart2 is actually chart1 graph. The chart2 is the chart you are going to use for trading (chartDOM).

OK, will try and see on Sunday hopefully.

The multiple instance stuff is confusing. THe first instance is really running just to collect data, which is written to the data dir. THe second instance also needs to have a chart for the same symbol, and it will pull data from the data dir (this chart should not update the data file per directions). The chart in the second instance is where you will build your delta. The overlay, then pulls data from the instance 2 chart onto your TT chart. The overlay uses timestamps to collate and pull the correct data.

@Big Mike u have to do like @omaha786 , then in TT istance you have to set a chart with IQ symbol using Price Multiplier x100, under chart setting, and Tick Size, Price Display to 1
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


then open a new chart with TT symbol, you have to set in chart setting Disable Data File Updating
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).
,
then you have to Overlay the Price Chart with the IQ one and set to use it as main chart, then Overlay all the other studies u like from the IQ chart, now u have IQ feed chart data and trading order thru TT.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
Luke.

I have not, unfortunately. I've been out of my office all day today on errands related to my home remodeling, but I will try to do this tomorrow as my trial of Sierra has now expired so I need to get it working via Velocity asap

FYI, I got my second computer setup for SC, but figured out the "Free" Velocity version of SC will not connect to IB, which I was planning to continue to use to hedge any trades in the event I lost my Velocity connection and for "free" Index data feeds. Guess I will have to switch back to Ninja. Ahem, NO! But I will have to continue paying $26, which I suppose is not entirely unreasonable. This may also affect anyone planning to use free Velocity with a secondary data feed such as IQ Feed. Unless I am doing something wrong?

Ja, you cannot connect to other brokers datafeed with velocity password, dunno if this is also for non broker data like IQFeed.
