Data And Trading Service Provider Integration with Sierra Chart
Integration Methods to Sierra Chart
Sierra Chart supports the open specification DTC Protocol.
If you are a Data or Trading service provider and your services support the DTC Protocol, Sierra Chart will automatically be compatible with your systems.
For the documentation for the protocol, refer to http://dtcprotocol.org/.
Sierra Chart can also integrate to your Data or Trading service using the following message protocols and data formats: FIX, FIX/FAST, HTTP, JSON, XML, proprietary or comma delimited data formats.
Once integration is done using either of the 2 above methods, Sierra Chart has the systems and ability to redistribute your real-time and historical market data through our own systems if agreed upon. This means that we will only maintain 1 or 2 market data connections to your systems and redistribute the data through our own systems. Trading from Sierra Chart will still go direct to your own servers and not pass through Sierra Chart systems. This is a common way in which we work with Forex trading services.
By using a market data connection to your system, Sierra Chart can also maintain historical market data for Sierra Chart users. We much prefer to maintain historical data for our customers. It is much faster and more reliable.
Sierra Chart Customization for Your Service
If you are an established Data or Trading service, and you write a server which follows DTC, contact us at [Java Script Is Required. To View The Email, enable Java Script] so we can add a custom listed service in Sierra Chart that connects to your service using this protocol.
