Is it impossible for me to have real time data without a trading account. I just want use sierra chart for charting and simulation with real time data but it seems kinda un-do-able.

It depends on what data you need. The only exchange that has this rule is the CME Group. They require that you have a live, funded, futures trading account in order to qualify for the non-professional exchange fees. This is their rule, we are just enforcing it.

The other option is to pay the professional fees. To see what these look like, refer to the exchange fees for the CME Group here:
Denali Exchange Data Feed: Supported Exchanges (Exchange Fees)

We recommend using the solution outlined at the following link to open an account to qualify for the non-professional fees for only $100-200:
Easy Solution to CME Funded Trading Account Requirement

Data from other exchanges (EUREX, CFE, NASDAQ) do not have this requirement and you can get that data immediately - you do not need a brokerage account for these.
For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:
