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.

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?

I asked TST this question several months ago and the answer was you can use any charting software you want, but orders still have to go through the CTS T4 contract window. Since it's been a while, I figured it was worth a shot to follow up with them on this item. Same story. No matter what charting or data you use, your orders have to be placed via the T4 software.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for verifying, that's a bummer. Would be nice if they could integrate Sierra for execution as well. Perhaps we could request that of them and see what they say.

Hmm, so even using Sierra and selecting CTS for execution wont work?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Correct. You have to use the CTS T4 order entry window. You can use the data to feed your charts, but still have to use T4 for your trades. If I recall, you can actually execute trades from your charts, but it doesn't get reflected against your TST Combine account. If I get around to it, I may have some screenshots that illustrate.

Also, this isn't just me speculating what may be. This comes from an email response from Elena I received today

So when NT comes on board, you will still have to place orders via T4?

I have done a few combines using t4 through sierra, orders definitely go through, all limits and stops are even displayed on the corresponding DOM in T4. Sierra is just a different front end for the same api, no reason the should even know you are using sierra.
