Sierra chart produced a bunch of errors from FIX, CTS unable to cancel pending orders, CTS delaying orders. How bizarre. I am scared to think what this combination can do when live if it can't work properly with the CTS sim. Sierra is very good, but it does not work good enough with CTS execution. Maybe it's a sim problem but it is very annoying.

Use SC version 997 for CTS. CTS FIX is a nightmare, I believe they are trying to fix it.

Yes, TST states on their website you should only be using version 997.

Could you please point me out where it is stated?

All I can see is


Quoting 
This page lists the descriptive titles to pages that contain answers to questions and issues you may have. If you are having a problem, then please be sure to update to the Current version of Sierra Chart. To update, simply select Help >> Download Current Version on the Sierra Chart menu. You may want to briefly review all of the titles below to be sure you find the answer you need, even if support referred you to a specific topic.


I have started with version 997 and while it could connect to CTS it could only fetch historic data and no real time data, not depth of market or anything else. Upgrading to last version made it work, but as we can see things can get messy still.

Looks like it's rarely updated if ever. At other place it says to download the latest version. In any case, 997 does not work any longer.

I have spoken to both Erika and Cait at TST support and they both say you have to use version 997. I specifically asked because I wanted to download a newer version but they said that was not advised. So I am using 997 and it works fine.

You can contact TST if you want to check for yourself.

Perhaps it is something with your settings? Maybe uninstall completely and reinstall. Just keep your data folder.
