Will like to trade via Sierra platform futures (CME, ES EC ) And stocks ( NYSE, NASDAQ)
Look for tick by tick data ( no aggregation) for the future trading.
For stock trade need real time data
Will like to get the Cme data feed waiver program.
Please advice for broker can offer a resnabel package.

Thanks
Moti

You really will need to use two separate brokers. There are many good choices for futures trading. Please refer to this page:
http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/data.php

This page also lists brokers:

They all are fine for futures except for Interactive Brokers.

For stocks, you can look at Interactive Brokers or TD Ameritrade.

infinity futures (listed as transact in link above) is waived if you make 10 round trips a month & they have low margins/commissions with a great very fast user interface & executions (and sierra is included in the 10 round trips).. recommended futures broker

Is there another reason besides Interactive Brokers' data feed being aggregated to 5 second bars?

IB has a very complex system on the front-end and backend and we hear about glitches from time to time. With every single Data or Trading service we work with, when there is a technical problem, we have a clear channel of communication to them, and they generally will solve issues. With Interactive Brokers, if you have a technical issue, sometimes it can be difficult for them to recognize the problem.
