The external services are separate from us. Data services provided with the Service Packages include the Sierra Chart Historical Data Service, Sierra Chart Real-Time and Historical Forex and CFD Data Service, and the Sierra Chart Market Statistics Data Feed.

If the service is separate from us, then there potentially is an additional charge for the data. Generally data direct from Trading services (brokers) only has a small monthly charge.

One Time Purchase Option?

Occasionally we get asked if we offer a one-time purchase option for Sierra Chart. The answer is no, and this is something that would never be offered.

It is inconsistent with the services that we offer. Sierra Chart is not merely software but provides data services, support services and continuous updates to our software which is necessary for it to work with external Data/Trading services due to various changes with those services which occur on an ongoing basis. And we also continuously update the software with various improvements and new features.

Therefore, our costs must be covered with continuous payments for the software and services.

This matter should be viewed as a solicitation to trade. Trading futures and options involve substantial risk of loss and are not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity interests can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. The placement of contingent orders by you or broker, or trading advisor, such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity interest trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains. ITG Capital Management, LLC (d.b.a. ITG Futures) is not affiliated with nor does it endorse any trading system, methodologies, newsletter or other similar services. We urge you to conduct your own due diligence.
