the pricing includes a monthly reset which is not included in the standard Trading Combine price.


Many thanks for your kind (and very fast!) reply, which of course makes complete sense. On a brighter day, I might have looked more carefully and worked that out for myself - please excuse me; but thanks for the clarification!

It is T4.

Thanks!

Why do you use it? having cheaper alternatives like Sierra Charts with more options, does it have to do with execution or familiarity? I started trading futures on T4 but I haven't used it in a while and I believe they updated the software, it looks a bit different from when I used it. I would like to try it out

I suspect "Nebraska" using T4 because has something to do with the fact that he is a veteran floor trader - what I've seen is almost all floor traders gravitate towards it for some reason, plus it is rock solid.

Been using it since 2006, so familiarity really.
