Real-time Futures, Equities/Stocks, Options and Cash Index Data
To receive real-time streaming data for Futures, Equities/Stocks, Options or Cash indexes which come from exchanges, you will need to connect Sierra Chart to an external supported Data and Trading service which provides the particular data that you require from the particular exchanges.
Refer to the supported Supported Data and Trading Services page for the list and complete details. Each supported Data and Trading service will only provide certain types of data and from certain exchanges. For example, a Trading service that supports futures trading is not going to provide equities/stocks or cash index or options data.
Real-time data from exchanges in almost all cases has an additional cost.
Or, to receive real-time streaming data for Futures, Equities/Stocks, Options or Cash indexes from exchanges, you can pay for and activate one of the Real-Time Exchange Data Feeds Available from Sierra Chart. These are Sierra Chart provided data feeds and are an additional cost to the Service Packages.
