Dear Sierra charts team,
I would like to have data feed on US stocks. I have got some questions:
1. In case of delayed quotes - i already sign a document about delayed data feed (there was said, that the quotes would be deleyed, but will not be freezed). Unfortunately in my case, the chart is just freezed. What can i do to find them automatically renew second after second, without freezeing for 15 minutes. (i find them by clicling chart settings > "find symbol list" > "stocks" > enter search text-BATS exchamge) and i just write "XOM" > i am getting the right chat, but it's feezed and uploading once in every 15 minutes.

2. If i would like to have the real time quotes on US stocks (NYSE NASDAQ CBOE) on the sierracharts with Depth of the market, which exchange should i subsribe from the "supported exchange" list? Does the "CBOT with Market Depth for nonprofessional Trading accounts" for 10,4$/month would be ok?

3. I have got also CQG trading account - but i have got it only for using the sierra chart system. (I am doing my investing activity on the other accounts). If i would like to have real time quotes on US stock, should i subscribe the right exchange from the "supported exchange" list on both sierrachart account and my trading account? (which would be useless, because i am not doing activity on trading account which is merged to the sierrachart). Or i will subsribe the right exchange only on the sierrachart and i will get the real time quotes? Ofcourse i would like to have the Depth of the market.

1. There is not a Delayed Streaming capability for the U.S. Equities in Sierra Chart. That functionality is only for the CME Group data. This is why you are only getting updates every 15 minutes or so. Refer to the information here:
Sierra Chart Historical Data Service: Introduction

2. For Real-Time U.S. Equities data, you can use the Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed and enable the U.S. Equities exchange. Just be aware that this does NOT include market depth data. We do not an option for Market Depth with the U.S. Equities. In order to get Market Depth we recommend looking into the IQ Feed. You will find more information on this here:
DTN IQ Feed Data Service

If you want to pursue the use of the Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed for U.S. Equities, then refer to the information here:
Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed

3. You only need to subscribe to the data on one system, not both. Therefore, if you are getting your data from us (Sierra Chart) then you should not be paying for data from CQG, and vice versa. You will need to manage this, as it is not something that we can do for you.
For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:
