I have just started using IB and sierra charts 2day, but i have noticed a few "trades" with volumes of plus 4million in both ES and EUR... anyone else getting these? or have I done something wrong?

I don't use the volume via IB. In fact I don't use volume at all!

I do know the API has been modified recently how it handles volume.

I posted on their forum about these spikes, but nothing seems to have been done about it. Let them know.

I have posted on their board, lets see what happens, its a bit of a pain, and the only negative thing about this software.

They had problems after version 48 was released. I hadn't seen the spikes before this.

While i am here i may as well ask, is anyone using Sierra with mytrack, if so how do you find it?

I am looking at this as i like Sierra but using the IB data with no history is a pain, i want to be able to open up Sierra and be ready to go with history and realtime without any messing around leaving the machine running etc.

I did look at SC magic but they only cover a very limited range of symbols.

PS Was considering the Silver package with the appropriate Exchange fee's added and would still keep the IB data subs so i can see prices in TWS to compare before placing orders and if mytrack was down it would be better than nothing.

Hi there,
I use sierra with mytrack have done so now for 15 months using the silver package never had a problem so would recommend it to anyone.

Hi Peter

Can you tell me do i also need to pay a $25 PM API fee to use with Sierra as well as the $19.95 data subscription? Seems like it might be from the web sites but i am not certain from reading them.

PS How many symbols do you get realtime with the Silver package?

Thanks

Al

I think of the top of my head I pay $40 every 6 months for Sierra

Cost of Mytrack

Hi Peter

The extra $25PM API fee on top of the $19.95 is to Mytrack but it sounds like you are probably not having to pay it so i think i will give it a try and see what happens. At $19.95 per month it is not a big risk to find out.
