When I try to connect to data feed, I have an error message that my username or password is not correct. Also, says I have to many failed attempts and to contact my FCM. I do not know what FCM means. So, I guess I need someone to reset it so I can attempt to connect again. Now I know that I should be putting in my username/credentials from AMP. Do I put in my AMP password as well?

On the Data/Trade Service Settings window (Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings), you will enter your CQG credentials.

But it sounds like you have that worked out, as the message regarding too many connections is a CQG message that you would not be getting unless you connected. Refer to the following regarding this message:

FCM stands for "Futures Clearing Merchant". This is the company that actually places the trades. If you are working with AMP, then AMP is your FCM as well as your broker.

Now I am successfully logged in to CQG for the data feed in the Data/Trade Service Settings and I am getting the following response when I try to see a chart for a ticker:

"Real-time market data only supported with Sierra Chart data feed for symbol: F.US.ENQU22" This is in an orange box.

Then in a red box it says "Download failed. Historical data only supported with Sierra Chart data feed."

See attached image.

I don't understand. I have paid for the CME bundle.
