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

I do agree that this would be nice. But SC provides a very powerful spreadsheet system that addresses probably quite a few of these. If you would like (and since I've been interested anyway), let me know which homework/research you would like to see, and I will see if I can do it in SC and will provide the template. If we get a few of these going, we can start a new thread and use it as a resource.

I understand that the spreadsheet functionality has a steeper learning curve than IRT's language, but it is quite flexible. So, if you would like--which one would you like to see first? I'll give it a try. Seeing how a few of these are done, assuming they can be done, will help you understand how to do these in SC. I would be remiss if I didn't mention @tomgilb who is a SC spreadsheet master.

Superb, thanks for this Josh.

This would be a good starting reference to have. What is the average range and volume of the following:

Other ideas:

Gap outside of yesterdays range of 10 ticks has xx% of closing
How far does a bounce off a HVN/LVN/VPOC etc typically run?
How far are these levels typically penetrated?
What if they are hit after 50,60,70,80,90,100% of ATR?
What if there is a cluster of levels within x ticks?

Ok so these are probably really hard to test but would be great to see.

Thanks again!

Is there a big lot volume filter that you can use in a numbers study? So you can see any big single lots over X amount, as per what there is in MD.

In Chart Settings, Advanced Settings 2 tab, there is a volume filter--this is for any chart and would probably work as you expect when the Numbers Bars study is attached.

By the way, I haven't forgotten about the studies. I just have had little time to work on it. I did write a study that sums another study at a certain time that will help with the process. Hang in there and I'll have something as soon as I can get to it.

Cheers for the reply Josh,

I've only just started using SC, so i'm still finding my way around.

I've tried using the volume filter, but that's not exactly going to work if you're trying to pick up big single lot orders. I presume it needs to be based on some sort of time component in order to isolate big lots going through at once.

BTW I love SC. Been with it for one year now and I'm fascinated how customizable it is.

My question is: Is there a study to show iceberg/block orders? On chart, or T&S or something else?

Best regards to all.

Again I have on question: I wanted to implement a volume filter with combining records by price and type in Sierra Charts.

By combining records, there are many records showing up with a cumulative size over a few hundret. But when I enter a volume filter above 100, there are less records showing. Is this because the volume filter is executed first and then it combines the orders? Or is there any feature that supports this?

Thanks in advance.

My Sierra Chart feature requests:

- true Monthly charts for (pit) sessions
-- Sierra offers a workaround via 30d (30-0-0) Intraday charts
-- but the 30d setting does not start at the 1st of each month
-- it is more or less useless as Monthly charts

-- it works nicely for Daily 1D -> 1d and Weekly 1W-> 7d
-- why not for Monthly M -> 30d or 31d or 29d ?

I asked Anthony to add a session VWAP to the DOM as an option during the webinar yesterday, he indicated he would do so. That will be great!

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I may be off on this, but you can add any custom study to the DOM -- and I think it works, but not sure. You could write a generic study that takes a study from another chart and simply spits back out whatever it takes in, a wrapper basically. That would be a solution to be able to put ANY study on the DOM. I think I have done this before but I'll have to check.
