    Is Echo going to discontinue Sterling?

    It's possible, but I haven't heard anything like that.

    Our group initially switched because many of us wanted to be co-located, and that wasn't an option with sterling at the time. (As far as I know, that is still the case) And our programmer just didn't want to support both platforms. Can't really blame him.

    Overall, I really like the platform. And the service is unbelievable.

    There are definitely some adjustments if you trade manually. I'm mainly automated but I was able to set up my simple hot key settings exactly the same as my old sterling keys for when I do the occasional manual trade.
