Sierra Chart Connection Guide

STEP 1. Platform Subscription Information 

Sierra Chart provides OneUp Trader users with a free 30-day trial.

STEP 2 - Complete RITHMIC Market Data Agreements

Please start with Step 2 before contacting Support. Your SierraChart connection will not work until you sign the CME agreements via R-Trader Pro.

You must first download Rithmic R|TRADER Pro in conjunction with any other platform you may use.

  • Use the following link to download and install R|Trader Pro Software: R|Trader Pro
  • Once installed, a new window will come up, enter your OneUp Trader account username and password in the appropriate fields
  • "Username" (USER ID - found in your welcome email)
  • "Password" (found in your welcome email)
  • “System” dropdown menu, select “Rithmic Paper Trading”
  • “Gateway” dropdown menu, If you are in the USA then select CHICAGO AREA, if you are in Europe then select EUROPE or FRANKFURT, and if you are in Asia you will want to select TOKYO or SINGAPORE
  • When you connect, you have 2 CME GROUP Documents that you need to agree to.
  • Document 1: Click "I Agree" in the first one
  • Document 2: select either “Non-Professional” or “Professional” and then "Submit". Please note if you are a professional, OneUp Trader will have to invoice the exchange fee difference monthly to your card on file for the evaluation($405 for all four exchanges). If you are a professional user and are netted with the exchange, please let us know so we can kindly pass that on to our ISV.
  • Non-Professional - All regular market data included in your evaluation
  • Professional- CME-$105, CBOT-$105, NYMEX-$105, COMEX-$105
