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.

I would like to see the study have the ability to paint before and after the chart is painting (the before-paint should be after any background clearing/filling is done).

There are not hooks per se, but you can designate a study to paint under the main price graph. In study settings there is a checkbox to Draw Study Underneath Main Price Graph. There is also a similarly named var that you can set from the study if you want to force it on.

Longer term, having a z-order for all plots and drawings would be nice to have.

Right now you can keep track of the number of trades at the Last until the Last changes, then it resets.

How about the ability to do the same, but for both bid/ask/last? This to me seems like it would allow the counter to reset less often and give an example of the absorption or pressure at the current bid/ask more clearly.


Mike

Seconded, and in general provide a smarter DOM and tape a la jigsaw trading tools.

Vol Profile scrolling historically


Just moved from Ninja to Sierra and found this feature missing:

The vol profile doesn't 'develop' when historically going through the chart, it is always showing the 'end of session' profile.

With Gomi, as you scroll the VP updates as if 'live'

Or am I missing something?

Thanks!

Maybe take a look at the Volume By Price study, it updates dynamically based up visible screen, number of bars, unit of time, or start and end times.

Sierra VP not srolling

Futures Edge on FIO
Thanks vegafoster,

I tried them all;

It is fine when you are live and with the current day, but when scrolling in the past - that is when the profiles of days

passed are static and show the full completed day's profile as on my picture.

With Gomi the profile updates itself as if it is 'current' .

Best

Here is something that ticks me off to no end. Maybe I'm missing something, but there has got to be a faster way of changing a chart's symbol than right clicking and going into chart settings and or having to duplicate the chart just to prevent having to do this again. Why not have it like fxcm, where in the upper left hand corner of the chart there is a drop down menu of symbols? Maybe even a favorite list of symbols you can drag and drop the symbols into the list or something, anything. When I try to trade more than one instrument I end up with like a 1000 charts hodgepodged together, I'm almost forced to create a chartbook per instrument. That's not right. I got to be doing something wrong or they got to be.

Type the symbol with your keyboard and press Enter. If you don't already have data for the symbol, type a forward slash, followed by the symbol. You only need to do this the first time in this case.

Homework


This kind of session analysis functionality would be very useful addition to Sierra Chart.

Investor/RT - Homework, Research, Statistics

IRT makes it relatively easy for a trader to see how often a market closes gaps etc without needing to learn how to code. Please consider adding similar functionality or tutorials on how this can be done with Sierra.

Thanks
