Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

I agree this could be improved, but I currently use different icons and titlebar names for my 3 instances. I changed the target for the windows shortcut by appending "/chartname:customname. Also, you can just use change icon under the windows shortcut properties and there are a small number of different options.

You can plot a midline using the Average of Two Subgraphs study, but not sure what you mean by ability to plot continuous.

Worked Thanks

More support for extensions

Support for creating extensions that are not related to a specific chart or dom would be great.

The extensions should have access to the api's for trading, positions, datafeed and quote spreadsheet.

sierra chart

the platform is excellent value, robust, handles tick charts no problem, the delta market numbers are very stable, in NT the delta market indicators are not so robust, this platform is truly advanced, and I have tired all of them, I very sad to report, the disadvantage for me is that you have to be a whiz programmer to get an indicator up and running if you have an idea for a indicator

What type of programming did you try? ACSIL or spreadsheet study? I use the latter because I'm reluctant to learn the ropes of ACSIL. Till now I found only one situation wherein the spreadsheet study did not suffice. I dropped that indicator from my wishlist.

Quickly Hide/Show an indicator

When right click on the Region Data Line, it shows all the indicators in the region. It would be nice to have a check box in front of each indicator to quickly hide or show the indicator.
