Hi Bogdan,

That sounds fantastic! The easiest way to transfer the funds into your Stage 5 account would be to request a direct wire transfer from Transact to your account with Stage 5 at Advantage Futures. You should be able to request this directly with transact by sending them the wire instructions. If you have any questions or would like any assistance please let us know. We are here to help.

Once you transfer the funds, we will activate your account and then you will be able to trade through Sierra Chart Teton Order Routing and hopefully save money with the lower commissions!

If you have questions or would like any further details, please feel free to call us at 1-312-896-9897 or 1-800-258-6675. You can email us at sierrachart@s5trading.com and can also contact us here: https://stage5trading.com/contact/


Thank you,

Anthony Giacomin, Please provide your margin arrangement details with Advantage. I do not see their margin requirements for Day, Night & Maintenance listed on their website. Thank You

Please see the below and let me know if you would like any additional products clarified.

MCL: $105
CL: $1,230
MES: $65
ES: $650
GC: $1,200
NQ: $900
YM: $480

Keep in mind that Intraday Margin is a double-edge sword. The lower the intraday margin the higher the leverage and larger your PnL swings.

If you open an account you will receive $0.20 per side commissions on the micros and $0.45 commissions on non micros plus exchange and regulatory fees.

If you have questions or would like to speak to an assigned personal broker for details, please call us at 1-312-896-9897 or 1-800-258-6675. You can email us at sierrachart@s5trading.com and can also contact us here: https://stage5trading.com/contact/

I don't know if I understand it well.

With Gold GC the minimum amount is $ 1,200.

Hi Bogdan,

The minimum to open the account is $100-$200. The minimum account balance to trade is $200. If the account is in a position that causes the NLV to drop below $200 the position should be liquidated and the account locked from live trading until additional funds are received.

The per contract intraday margin is what you need in your account to trade that specific product.

MCL: $105
CL: $1,230
MES: $65
ES: $650
GC: $1,200
NQ: $900
YM: $480

For example, if your account balance is $500 you can trade up to 4 MES $500/$105 = 4.76 contracts which would be rounded down to 4 contracts max.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or we can provide further detail.

Thank you,
Anthony Giacomin

As I already mentioned, I have a trasact $ 722 for sale.
I do not know how much of this will be left after the transfer.
I plan to trade mickro gold at the beginning,
and when I have a little more money, I want to trade CME gold.
I trade with one contract.
Sincerely

Hi Bogdan,

I must have missed that you provided your account funding before. Currently, Micro Gold Futures have an intraday margin of $144 per contract. On a $700 account you would be able to trade a max position size of 4 Micro Gold contracts. Please note that margins are subject to change if the CME raises or lowers their exchange margin for the product.

Since you will only be trading one contract you should be in good shape.

Please let me know if there is more we can do to assist.

Thank you,
Anthony Giacomin

Good morning.
I have sent you a message that I wish to join you as a broker.
You were very happy, you even called me.
You also offered to help complete the transition
from TransactAct to you. I asked you for the bank transfer account number, bank name and other things that are needed to send money. I have not received such data.
I expect problems from TransactAct.
The contract concerned the account from which the money was sent to them
over 8 years ago.
I'm afraid they'll say they can only give money back to that account.
This is due to the relatively long waiting time for the transfer and
with very high shipping costs. On top of that, I expect TransactAct to take a large commission and not leave much of that money.
I expect decisive and simple help from you.
We have to deal with it this week.
Kind regards
Bogdan Nominaniuk

I am currently with Transact and am trading for multiple accounts via a block account. I am now due for more usage time and am learning that I may not be able to continue with Transact? I am trading an automated system and have had no issues with Transact (have all the bugs worked out) and am concerned about moving to a newer version of SC as well as having to migrate all of the accounts to a new broker with new order routing. I could use some guidance here on the best way to proceed without being down for too long.
Thanks for your help!

Historical data support when using the Transact trading service with older versions of Sierra Chart, is going to be discontinued as of August 20, 2022.

This date has been moved back from September 3, 2022 due to technical reasons which are not in our control.

When that happens you will need to begin to use the Denali Exchange Data Feed for both historical and real-time data:
Denali Exchange Data Feed

There will be no cost for the exchange fee for the first month and we can give you the first month free for the Denali Data Feed

And once again we strongly recommend moving to Teton Order Routing:
Sierra Chart Teton Futures Order Routing

And Sierra Chart has this three months free offer:

We are a team of experts when it comes to setting you up for the best experience possible with Sierra Chart. The process of transferring your account and maintaining consistency in your market data and process is quick and effortless with Edge Clear.

Please go to our dedicated Sierra Chart page here: https://edgeclear.com/sierrachart

We look forward to welcoming you as a member!

The prior post has been deleted. We do not need our users promoting a service, Transact, that we do not want to support or have our users continue to use.

This is not good news at all. We are just simply just trying to be accommodating as much as possible. And honestly, after we read that post, we may decide to terminate Transact support for all users, at the end of September. We may very well decide to do that.
