Twice today, my most used chartbook has reset itself from 5 to 2 decimals in price display. WTF?
On FOREX, this really matters.
[Also has lost intermediate grid lines.]

Reset 5 to 2 yet again. Not amusing.

The problem is you are not using the correct symbol format. Since you are using the Sierra Chart Historical Data Service, all of the Forex symbols need to begin with the caret character.

Example:
^EURUSD

Easily repaired. Thanks.
Your feed has more symbols than SC Forex Data (FXCM). [They only trade 63 pairs.]
What are your most inclusive feeds for FX and for Futures?
I suppose that live trade from SC charts will force me to match feed to broker, when I choose broker.

Do you have a guide to which of your feeds require special characters, e.g., caret prefix?

You will need to make your own decision as to which Data or Trading service you want to use.

The symbols for each service are listed in File >> Find Symbol when that service is the current selected Service in Sierra Chart. Although not all symbols will be listed. For example, stock symbols and less common symbols will not be listed.
