Good morning ,
I have had a look and have decided I would like to sim trade until I am used to using sc.
can you tell me if I am correct by choosing service pack 5 which has delayed data ? , which has the advanced features that I’m looking for .
I am not using a futures broker so I think I’m correct to choose SP 5 .
Also can I ask does delayed data in sim mode show the same as a connected broker account , ie margin for trades , P&L account detail etc
And should I wait until the start of a month to activate a package
Kind regards

You are correct, you would want to use Package 5 along with the Delayed Streaming data. You do not need a broker or anything special, apart from an active Sierra Chart account in order to get the delayed streaming data for the CME Group, EUREX, CFE, and NASDAQ TotalView.

Since you are wanting to have margin, P&L, etc., you will want to use our Simulated Futures Trading Service, as this service has those capabilities. There is a special option with the simulated futures trading for working with the delayed data, so this is not an issue. Refer to the information here:
Simulated Futures Trading Service

You do not need to wait for the beginning of the month for what you are doing. That is only necessary for when you want to activate a real-time exchange, since those are billed in full for each month. Your Sierra Chart usage time is billed on a 31 day cycle from when you first activate a paid package.
For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:
