U.S. Equities Data

Hi Sierrachart,

I signed up for your "Sierra Chart Real-Time and Historical Exchange Data Feed" plan and purchased its "U.S. Equities (NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX): Price 10.5 USD/month" data feed.

I installed it and restarted SC accordingly, but am not seeing any equities/stocks in the "Find symbol" tool. A screenshot of what I see in the "find symbol" tool is attached. Any idea what the issue is?

Also, does this "U.S. Equities (NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX)" plan I purchased give data on any Options from those exchanges? Or just Equities?

Thanks!

Stock symbols will not be listed. You have to manually enter them.

This is explained here:

The Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed does not provide any options data. Just futures, futures spreads, stocks and indexes.

I see.

Which data providers that your connected to offer tick by tick (realtime and historical) Options market data?

I'd be using Interactive brokers as my broker to trade Options on your platform. Not sure if that effects which market data provider I'd use.

Not sure about options. You may want to check with DTN IQ Feed.

Cool. I will.

I forget if Interactive Brokers themselves supplies such data to live account holders. If they do, will the data feed they supply integrate with SC?

Here is information about IQ Feed:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/DTNIQFeed.html

Interactive Brokers does provide options data. And Sierra Chart does support options. The symbol formats can be found here:
