We are focused on our core product, Tradovate, and do not have plans to support Sierra DTC.

Tradovate now has TPO Charts, and I would suggest you give them a try. If you do not see the features you are looking for, we are always developing; therefore, we would love to hear about them. Lastly, the TPO charts come standard in Tradovate with no additional cost.

Hi @Tradovate,

Does your platform support custom indicators? What language are the indicators written in?

What is the process for members to share their custom indicators with each other?

We do support Custom Indicators. Our indicators are Javascript.

One benefit we provide is that all of our "Built in" indicators are provided in the platform as open-source and users are free to copy and modify the code to create their own indicators. You can create your own indicators by using the "Code Explorer" module in the trading platform. This is also where you can view our built-in indicators' code as well



Once you have created an indicator you can share it with the community by selecting "Share" function from the "Community" menu on the Code Explorer

Share


Selecting the "Explore" function from the "Community" menu on the Code Explorer will bring up a library of indicators that have been shared by other users with the community. Users can Search for indicators by typing in text in the searchbox, Install indicators by clicking the install button under the indicator description and Disable installed indicators from this area

Indicator Community


We have some resources available for users to leverage as well:
A public repository with a tutorial, examples and samples: https://github.com/tradovate/custom-indicators
Our community forum area where users collaborate on indicators and development: https://community.tradovate.com/c/custom-indicators/6

Thank you Brian. I followed along but it wasn't clear at the end whether or not it's possible for a Tradovate user to share the indicator with someone outside of your own community. For instance, can it be shared here on futures io?

Yes.

To do that today, a user would be able to Export the indicator and send (or post) the file for other users to Import as a new indicator via the Code Explorer

How do you do spread charts in Tradovate? Or is that a feature not available?

Currently, you can chart exchange-traded spreads, but multiple symbols in a single chart are not supported at this time
