The VIX futures are available, including delayed streaming data for the VIX and Mini VIX futures.

But, if you are not connected to a Sierra Chart service (such as 'SC Data - All Services'), then any data for which you have not explicitly signed up for real-time data will not be available as streaming delayed data, as we are expecting that data to come from your connected service.

Therefore, the easiest way to get the VIX futures is to install a second Sierra Chart and have the Current Selected Service set to SC Data - All Services. You will then get the delayed streaming data or the CFE Futures.

If, on the other hand, you are really wanting the $VIX index (from the CBOE) then this requires that you pay for the CBOE Indices exchange which is part of the Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed (delayed data is not available for this). Refer to the information at the following link, which includes setup instructions (you would not need another Sierra Chart in this case, as you are signing up to get the real-time data):

For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:
