Thanks



All I can say, after using everything from Metastock to Mutlicharts and everything in between....Sierra is hands down the best. The developers understand the "how" and "why" behind trading and technical analysis and go to great lengths to make sure SC works- from the simplest chart to the most complex overlays of 'studies on studies", multiple data feeds and multiple instruments on the same chart. They work at giving the trader the most sophisticated and customizable tools available. Not to mention the most reasonable pricing in existence.

Once you understand and accept their concept of customer service; they are impressive. Their even willing to admit a mistake, though it rarely happens.

Actually, I'm a pretty big fan!

It's hard to add much more to what others have already shared, but here it goes :)

SC does have a bit of a learning curve, but is unbeatable after just a bit of time spent learning the software. Powerful, stable, portable, responsive, flexible, and expansive. The software does more things than I'll ever think to ask it to do. This is all cool, but SC also has a world-class online community. Their forum is very active, with constant input and help from official SC engineers, as well as from some amazingly knowledgeable end users. It's the real deal and the complete package.

After using E-signal for 9+ years, I can appreciate a cheap stable & reliable charting platform. I love the volume value area lines & the highest high & lowest low for X number of bars study which is adjustable to the bar count you want. It's a great platform!!

It's all I'll ever need.
$18 a month for SC, and a free data feed from my broker.
Can't beat it for trading Futures.

Very happy for over a decade. Initially a little confusing, after that a world class support group. Prompt answers given and a depth of search results to solve any problems.

This is the real deal. It's a hidden gem. There's no other, and it's CHEAP.

$18 a month for a full charting and trading program that has it all. Blazing fast. Written in C++. There is no other. Support team that's on their game 24/7. This is a hidden gem. I have to warn you. This is no beginners software. You will feel pain when first starting out with this program. But the fruits are sweet, you will never turn your back to sierracharts. It's so powerful and stable. There's no automated subscription so if you're done with it you stop paying and that's it. No annoying messages or explanations. It comes with a ton of good working indicators, you can program all of yourself too. But like I said there is a real steep learning curve. IMHO it's worth it.
