I also noticed there is an asterisk next to the overnight low right now.

I think there should be no asterisk at all in the overnight session. Asterisk should only be visible once we start tracking RTH.

You rock.

One last thing, it isn't listening to the formatting of the instrument. IE on the Euro, it is only showing 2 digits instead of 4 after the decimal.

Sorry to be a pest.

I use the formatting you set up for the study, which can be "inherited" if you choose to use the same as the main barchart or you can set it to to something else (for now it only supports 0-5 decimals, any other setting will make it use 6 decimals)..

Yes of course. I always forget that is there...

Thanks again for your help.

you will need to change the path of the include file to where you have your sierra installed.

From the output you have here I would guess you can just change the "include" line to:

 
Code
#include "sierrachart.h"
as i think from the output you provided you put ktsierra.cpp in the ACS_Source directory.

The include line i have included expects a "default" sierra installation

Sounds like your ACS_Source folder is in a different place. You can modify the first line of the file with the correct path for your installation.

After having it on my chart one full session, there seems to be a problem. After the RTH session closed today, and the new ETH session opened, I have an asterisk again. It is currently during ETH hours, so the asterisk makes no sense right now.

Plus the values are wrong - it is still looking at the prior ETH session, instead of the current one that started a few minutes ago.

I am trading ES.
