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.

Graphics Settings of individual chart (or DOM) can be saved and applied to other charts (or DOM).

Take a look at ""Global Settings" -> "Graphics Settings". Here you can pick some options which are valid for all charts.

The easiest way is to configure a chart to your preferences and then use the "Duplicate Chart" feature to replicate these settings.

For the Trade DOM you may also configure the preferences of your choice via "Global Settings" -> "Graphics Settings" and when you open a new Trade DOM check the box "Use Global Graphics Settings Instead of these Settings" in its "Chart" -> "Graphics Settings" menu.

I know all these you just described. Now if I saw some one posted a nice looking chart or DOM, I would ask the person how it's configured. It would be much easier for the person to post his "saved" graphics settings file than typing all the color codes (R203, R244, etc).

Anyway, I thought about this feature after I saw the nice DOMs in the thread:

Well , I guess we would prefer to have a quite different interface:

"Sierri, configure my Trade DOM like the one shown in this URL...".

Version 920 (or so...)?

Questions regarding Sierra

Is it possible to draw a custom volume profile on the fly with Sierra similar to what is offered on I/RT or Rancho Dinero's Drawing Range-Based Volume Profiles tool ?

I find the way it's done with Rancho's tool is very easy and fast (ctrl+click point A and drag to point B and voila a new profile is born). Here is how it works:

Also, is it possible to display a chart using the point'n figure bar type in Sierra?

Yes, you can select 'draw volume profile' then drag x/y coords with mouse, it will surround price and draw a profile based on your default indicator settings.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Just so trendisyourfriend knows, this requires SC package 5.

As i've just mentioned in a reply to Big Mike on why I use Sierra I started using Sierra because of the PnF study. I soon found out that it wasn't implemented correctly as per the literature I have on the topic. So be wary if you're going to use it. They told me they've no intention of fixing it so I doubt it has been.

hi

I have read your thread in SC forum.

You said

"Many charting packages seem to have this problem and I have had a look through my point and figure books to double check the information."

Looks like there are no charting packages w PnF out of a box for your special needs?

thnx

Firstly, a lot of packages just don't implement it correctly at all. By "at all" I mean the X and Os aren't even in columns but scattered around the page. What i'm looking for isn't special needs either. It's how point and figure is supposed to be!

I don't want to take the thread off topic but here's what I mean by correctly. This is from a program called Trade Interceptor. I'll leave it at that.
