Two accounts - AMP and Optimus

Hi - I had an account with AMP and that is what I have been using with SierraCharts. Now I have a second account with Optimus-Futures, and I have a couple of questions on using SC:

1. I believe I can install SC on a second computer and use that installation to trade with Optimus account? Is there any additional charge for a second install?

2. How about data? I only need CME data (no market depth etc.) for the second install, but would like to keep my current data-subscriptions for the current installation.

Thanks.

You would definitely need to install a second Sierra Chart in order to connect to both accounts at the same time. Refer to the following for how to install additional Sierra Charts:
Using Multiple Data and Trading Services at the Same Time: Step-By-Step Instructions to Install Multiple Copies of Sierra_Chart

We recommend installing to the same computer unless you think it can not handle both installations. By having both installations on the same computer you do not need to pay for anything additional - including data. You would be able to get the Denali data to both installations at the same time.

If you install on 2 separate computers then you would have to pay for the exchange fees a second time to get the data to the second computer at the same time as the first. Refer to the information at the following link:

I do need to install on 2 separate computers.

So if I set the "Number of Systems" to 2 on this page: https://www.sierrachart.com/UserControlPanel.php?page=DenaliDataFeed#Exchanges

- Will I have to pay the same fee for each machine?

- I currently have "Full CME group with Market Depth" enabled, but for the second computer I only need "CME non-professional-Top-of-Book" <-- can I not have two separate selections for the two computers?

Thanks.

You will pay the exchanges that are active twice. Once for each computer.

You can not do this. You can only get the same exchanges to both computers.

It is possible to do what you want, but it would require having two different Sierra Chart accounts. But this would end up costing more money, therefore it is not really worth it.
