This means that users will need to separate charting and order entry if they wish to continue using SC and executing on T4. Frank question: is SC data feed good enough yet for production purposes? (for CME, CBOT, NYMEX, COMEX and ICE). I experienced issues recently with historical data and downgraded to package 1 in order to use CTS historical data in preference to SC historical data.
The alternative would be for users to drop CTS and move to another data and execution platform supported by SC. For e.g. TTFIX, again the reliability of SC historical data would be key as TT does not provide this.
CTS T4 FIX and Sierra Chart were a very good solution together, so these developments are unfortunate. Understand your position that these issues are beyond your control.
Any future plans to extend Sierra to connect directly into exchanges in order to bypass existing execution providers (CTS, TT, etc)? Appreciate this is a significant undertaking, but if Sierra wishes to continue to provide execution as well as charting support, then either this or better cooperation from e.g. CTS is required.
