 What to order

This depends upon how you will be using the program. If you are not going to be using IB TWS or myTrack as your quote source you will not need purchase a router lease. Get just the program license which is a one-time payment of $50. (You could also get the monthly subscription, but this will be more expensive after 3 months.)

See the following two tables for matrix of what is enabled for different key types:

 Key type  Abbreviation

 T

 P
 (router) Lease

 L

 CL

Any Feature not listed in the table above is enabled for any key type (including Trial). Note the L (router Lease) is not the same as the CL (Combined Lease) and ONLY works if you also have the P (Program License).

If you will be accessing IB TWS or myTrack for real-time quotes, then you can either get the monthly subscription ($19/mo) which will be all you need to purchase, or buy the program license ($50) and a router lease (for what ever term you want). The program license never expires, the router leases do, so you will need to purchase a new one when the first expires. (The break even between getting the program license + router lease, or the subscription is about 9 months, so if you plan on using the program less than this, the subscription will be cheaper).

If you don't know what IB TWS and myTrack are, you haven't read our data sources page.

Subscription terms

You make the first months payment when you subscribe. You will be sent an email immediately after paying with a combined SSChart & SSQRouter (both routers) lease code. Copy this into the "lease code" field in the {Help | Registration...} dialog and <click> [Validate Lease] and the program and router usage will be enabled for 1 month. On the same day the following month you will be automatically charged (through paypal) for the next month and a new combined lease code will be sent. This continues until you cancel your subscription. If your renewal date does not exist in the next month (Feb 30 for instance) your first subscription will extend to the 1st of the following month, and this will become your new renewal date.

Cancelling subscriptions

You can cancel your subscription for the combined lease anytime by logging into your paypal account (use the cancel button below). Your account information will show the subscription with a status link named "active". Follow that link and you will find a button to cancel the subscription. You will get an email confirming you have canceled. Your current combined lease key will continue to function until it expires. If you have trouble accessing your paypal account for any reason, you may also notify us at and we can cancel for you. (Include your name and current lease code).
