I use Sierra Charts with AMP to execute futures trades and I would like to use the Sierra Platform to execute stock trades. I currently use TDA and they said they no longer have a relationship with Sierra Charts.

For stock trading at this point we just recommend using Sierra Chart for charting only. We can provide you a real-time data feed for stocks. Let us know if you want to do that and we will give you directions.

We are going to look at supporting direct connectivity for stock order routing next year. For now you could use Interactive Brokers which is fine but do not expect any technical support from us when using them.

OK, I could overlay any brokers entry Box window onto my Sierra Charts Platform and use it that way. I am only interested in daytrading a couple of stocks like AAPL and FB so how much would would the stock data quote feed cost. Since I trade futures at AMP with Sierra Charts, would I have a different Sierra Installation for stocks or would it be somehow blended into my AMP Sierra installation? After adding this stock data-feed will your simulation account work the same way as it does for futures in that it sells to the bid and pays the asking price for market orders?

The data feed is 25 USD per month +10.50 USD per month for the exchange fee. Refer to:
Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed: Data Feed Pricing

Refer to the top of that page for a full overview of the service.

You can access the stock data in your current installation of Sierra Chart you are using with AMP.

Yes no reason why this would be any different.

You said I could use Interactive Brokers with Sierra Charts for stocks and I looked on "Global --- Data Trade Service Settings" and indeed Interactive Brokers is listed in the drop-down box. I am a bit confused when you say "Don't expect any support from you if I do this". From my point of view, either SC works for stocks at IB or it doesn't and I sense you are discouraging me from going this route. I did talk with IB and they say "yes, it should work" so again I am struck with the ambiguity from IB as well. You have the best trading platform on the planet and I really want to use it for stocks if it can be done. Do you have clients at IB successfully using the SC platform to execute stock orders successfully?

I am going to attempt to follow your instructions to implement stocks data feed into my AMP Futures installation even though AMP told me it can't be done. I am sure you know more about this than the rep at AMP that I spoke with.

I am in process of getting your data feed for 20 stocks into my AMP Futures Sierra Application. I got to the point yesterday where I needed to pause for you to set up my contract papers to sign. I did not know if this was an automatic thing or if I needed to draw your attention to it. So this is my notification if that is what is needed. I may start another thread asking the about the experience of SC users at IB as they might not find the question this far down in this thread.

I followed the instructions and I am getting an Apple chart up. However it is not updating in real time so I can't sim trade it. I did a FILE DISCONNECT then a FILE RECONNECT after 3 minutes and I got more data in my chart but it is still not updating. So, I am messed up somewhere. What do I need to do now to get my charts updating in real time? Thanks

You need to continue through the rest of the Setup Instructions. The next item is signing the agreements. You need to sign just the "Market Data Agreement (with US Equities Agreement)". You will find this agreement in this section of the website:
https://www.sierrachart.com/UserControlPanel.php?page=ExchangeDataFeedFeatures#Agreements

The information for what you need to sign is in this section of the Setup Instructions:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SierraChartRealTimeFuturesStockDataFeed.php#Agreements

After the above is done, then you need to activate your exchange and then make sure your software is setup. All of these steps are in the sections below the one linked above, in order. Just keep on going through them until you get to the Symbol Limits section.

Also to use Interactive Brokers with Sierra Chart you must have a direct account:

Direct Sierra Chart Account

When you are using Sierra Chart that has been provided through an affiliate, you do not have a direct paid account with us, and you wish to access functionality that is not provided in your limited version, you must have an account with Sierra Chart directly and have a standard installation of Sierra Chart. To accomplish this, follow the instructions below:

What would the total cost be for a "Direct Paid Account with you" and a data feed for 20 stocks?

The data feed price is the same.

I have a similar setup but I'm confused. Long time Interactive Brokers customer and recently setup with AMP and Sierra Chart. I'm wanting to access both brokerage accounts (AMP & IB) through Sierra Chart. I'm currently on Package 3 via AMP and see that SC displays "not enabled on this package" for IB. I'm assuming from your support docs this is due to package 3 vs package 5 and was getting ready to change my settings with AMP to the Denali Feed along with Package 5. After reading this thread maybe this isn't even an option? Do I have to have a direct account mentioned or will package 5 enable IB and AMP connectivity? If it's a requirement to have a direct account what would be your best use suggestions with these priorities.

Priorities
#1 Sierra Chart w/ Interactive Brokers
#2 Sierra Chart w/ AMP (but could easily be another broker not married to AMP)
#3 Data Feed *not* IB too many issues over the years assuming Denali

WRT Post #15:

You need to have a Direct Account with us in order to be able to use Sierra Chart with both Interactive Brokers and with AMP (or any other Futures broker).

Once you get a Direct account with us, then you will pay for whichever Package level you want to use - Package 3 or 5. Refer to the following for information on the packages and pricing:
Description of Service Packages and Pricing

You can then get your data from us as well. The Denali Exchange Data Feed has the data for the CME Group and the Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed has U.S. Equities. Refer to the information here:
Real-Time Exchange Data Feeds Available From Sierra Chart

In terms of setup, we recommend installing two separate installations of Sierra Chart and use one for trading Futures with AMP (or whomever) and the other for trading with Interactive Brokers. There are not extra fees for this. Refer to the information here:
Using Multiple Data and Trading Services at the Same Time: Working with Multiple Trade Accounts

John thanks for the clarification that's helpful. Sounds like I'll be going the direct route then, however, if on the Denali feed for futures and you mention using the SC feed for equities can you run both simultaneously? I can't imagine having to switch back and forth connecting/reconnecting to different data feeds to get futures/equity quotes.

Edit --> After thinking about this I'm assuming the response is two instances of SC, one for futures using the Denali feed and a second instance using the SC feed to monitor equity prices. Correct?

Yes, you have it correct.

You can have both the Denali Exchange Data Feed and the Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed at the same time, even if they it is a single installation. When you do, you will also get a $10.00 USD credit per month to your account. Refer to the information here:

Two separate installations is only needed in the case of when you want to use Interactive Brokers and the Sierra Chart Order Routing Service at the same time.

Otherwise, one installation can be used to receive futures market data and US equities market data in one installation.

Hello Sierra Chart Engineering. Is there any update regarding trading stocks on SC? I noted your message from 2020 that you planned to look into this. Thank you for any insights.
