Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Did you turn simulation mode off on sierra? Its sort of a dumb question but it's a mistake I make regularly.

I will grab a screenshot of my settings, and one next time I have an outright trade.

You know, I'm not really sure. I'll have to check that out. Gotta admit, the idea that I may actually be able trade via SC has me all

@josh, thank you, great info. For multiple accounts in Sierra, you can use them in one installation, but not simultaneously, by going to the Data/Trade Service settings and entering the info for each manually, right? For multiple simultaneous logins, you will need multiple installations of Sierra running. This is a pain because then you need to keep all your chartbooks, platform settings, etc etc in sync between each installation.

Correct. And yes, it is a bit of a pain to keep settings synchronized if you are running charts on more than one. Personally I would have one copy for data, and then remote open that data file using another copy with a brokerage connection, and then do that for each brokerage that you have. This way the data is the same, but you can still use chart trading features if you like. But honestly, most people have only one broker and maybe one external data feed so it's not that big of a deal.

If you have only one copy installed, then you can actually switch data providers back and forth, but because most data provider use a different symbol for the same instrument, you will have multiple chart data files. In short, it's best to keep one copy for each data feed/broker used.

Yup, that did the trick! Thanks for the heads up.

I thought I read somewhere that T4 works with Sierra Chart. If you can execute through Sierra's DOM/chart trader, this should have all the functionality/speed of Ninja and then some. Has anyone tried this combo/does it work well with TST?

Sierrachart works fine with T4 - order entry through Sierra works as well. (you don't need T4)
and switch on Live-Trading in Sierra, otherwise Orders will not be routed to CTS T4.

Sorry for the confusion. Our support misunderstood that Sierra Chart was a front end and not just a charting service when answering the question of whether it can be used for execution in a Combine.

Thanks for all the help clarifying. Sierra Chart can be run through CTS and executed on, while in a TopstepTrader Combine. When you sign up you will receive a Username, Password, and Firm name. Be sure to correctly input these details in the Data/Trade Service Settings as shown.

TST, that's great, thank you for confirming. Glad we all kept asking this question!

Does anyone know if Sierra is capable of automatically linking executions through multiple accounts?
ie place trade in personal account, it is automatically/identically placed and managed in TST account.
