All in the space of a day. TST should be telling them to clear off now. That isn't how professional businesses work together.

Thanks for this update.

This is sort of what I thought was the direction things were going in.

I think you are correct in saying "for now."

It looks like Sierra Chart is simply not happy with continuing to support Rithmic, and TST got blindsided as SC moved to reduce a source of new Rithmic users. They also don't seem to be all that positive on the whole question of TST and the other "trade evaluators," as they call them, but that's another question.

How TST users will now proceed is not yet entirely clear, but I think that the crisis is past, "for now."

It may require some pro-active work by people who want to continue with Sierra and TST, but I hope these organizations will provide more guidance. It looks like if you have a TST/Sierra account, you can just upgrade to the newest version, not go back to version 2037 as previously announced, and use the same setup info you used in the past. However, this is not "official" information, which will have to come from TST or Sierra or both. Not from me. I'm just an observer here.

I have no idea how new users would set up their Sierra/Rithmic/TST accounts, or if they could.

If I see more, I will post about it here. But it seems to have blown over, or to be blowing over, "for now."

Bob.
