Hi !

complete newbie on Sierra, i opened an acount through advantage to trade ! so cautiously i would like to sim trade first !
and i set up everything to sim trade on delayed data but every time i am putting an order, it is saying i have to make a payment and i am ok with that of course !

but i don t see anywhere the cost of using only delayed data feed to sim trade ?
and since i am asked to pay 10 usd, does that mean that it cost 10 usd to use delayed data feed ? how frequently should i pay that ?

thanx for your return

The reason it is asking you to make a payment is because you are not Sim trading. Your account is setup to use the Sierra Chart Order Routing Service and you are setup to get Real-Time data from our Denali Exchange Data Feed.

As part of the Sierra Chart Order Routing Service, there is a charge of $0.10 per side that is charged through your Sierra Chart account. Since your current balance is $0.00, you are not allowed to place an order until you add some funds to your account in order to cover the cost of the order routing service.

Now, that being said, you should not be getting this message if you are in Simulation Mode. Therefore, we have to assume that you are not. Therefore, refer to the following for more information about Simulation Mode:
Overview of Trading: Difference between Simulated and Non-Simulated Trading Modes

Also, since you are already setup with the Real-Time data, are you really wanting to do testing with the Delayed Data?
For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:
