I submitted to SierraChart the idea that they integrate a connection to Darwinex into their trading platform.
To my surprise, they gave an initial green light following my short sales pitch !
Knowing them, they never give such an acknowledgement lightly (they often refuse user requests especially about new brokers).
That means that the context suits them potentially both technically and commercially as foreseeing Darwinex to be a worthy project.
Technically, they already integrated with LMAX (& many others) successfully and using FIX is part of their daily working standard (actually a minimum requirement) so its likely they see a fit environnement to release something solid without too many delays as long as they pull the trigger.
From a commercial point of view, they are asking some reassurance that there is some user interest showing out of the dark, which is perfectly normal.
Hence, I am asking you guys, traders / clients around here, if maybe you can show up your interest, even if it’s only expressing your curiosity to try out something very different than MT4.
In the event you have never heard about SC before, maybe you can demonstrate your love for Darwinex on their forum ? That would be a start to help
My quick non exchaustive introduction about SierraChart : it is an awesome trading platform and the best I have tried over the years.
Though their UI is a bit dated, their framework is, as a trade-off, super lightweight, efficient and robust at the same time.
The content of the platform itself is clearly addressing (very) advanced topics with so many useful options and practical details that are being taken care of.
If you think about something specific, it is probably not missing, and if it does, their support is very listening to feedback and also reactive to post new updates. At this, they are about the best.
Unlike their competitors, SierraChart does not rely on third parties and add-ons to enrich their platform and tend to incorporate every feature officially into their core offering. That’s a guarantee to get a comprehensive product of professional quality over time at a super and steady value (your wallet won’t leak through paying partners in order to get this or that feature)
All in all though, this is clearly a platform targeting expert needs... Beginner / intermediate users may find it a bit daunting at first but oh boy, if you put the time and efforts to master SC, and know something about trading, you are in for a serious threat ! So worth you studying this option for your daily trading (and coding !)
