I don't think that this will really use the CPU you think it will. The old profiles are already computed, and so there is no real CPU hit for excessive old profiles.

What will slow down SC a lot is to have transparency on the charts, for example, a transparent volume profile. Put 180 of those up, and zoom out, and you will notice a lag. If my DOM is set to recalc every 20ms for example, and I do the above, I can notice a substantial delay in the update of the depth messages.

Very very good ! Thanks a lot ! I turn off transparency in VpD and lags when horizontal scaling are out.

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.

As far as I remember, there is an extensive post somewhere on Support Board from SC team explaining the uselessness of highlighting block orders (icebergs are not mentioned), an opinion which I do not entirely agree with.

By the way, is there anyone else who would support block trades filter in numbers bars? And is there anyone who could programme it if SC team is still not fond of it?

Thanks a lot.
Hana

Study vs Price Divergence


Is there a way to automatically plot divergence in the study window.
It would act much like the automatic trendlines on Price, but instead plot in the study window and mark divergence on the study.
Have used this in another charting program.

ask/bid volume difference on diagonal dominant side in volume ladder

I would like a feature in footprint/ numbers bars study: ask bid vol difference on diagonal dominant side. And when the numbers print on both sides on the same price within a bar, than these numbers would also subtract. This would give better picture of how many market orders interact with limit resting orders since this tactic would track only net market orders.

When you start subtracting numbers diagonally it sometimes happens that some price level is empty and some price level have both sides of the ladder taken by numbers. In case when both sides of the price level in volume ladder are taken there should be option to subtract these numbers again but this time within the same price level. So that you end up only with one side of the ladder taken within the one price level in one bar/candlestick period.

enhanced tick chart

I would like to be able to have chart that would plot bars or candlesticks this way:
new bar is created when certain number of trades (or volume) happens and this makes change the last price. Basically only trades that move bid ask spread would be counted for the creation of the new bar.
This feature is available in fibonacci trader, would be great to have in Sierra.
It could be under chart settings / bar period section

Hi everyone


it's been a while for me, this may sound a little bit off-topic or even redundant question, but I have been unable to acces
SC's webpage, did they modify it or something?

thanks



thanks for the confirmation, the problem is the web wasn't accepting my connections from unix like machines, with different browsers, so thanks to your post I tried and figured out that I can't connect neither with windows.

So then there may be some problem with their host not accepting my IP (outside the U.S.).

I will get in contact with SC support.

thanks again for your fast answer.

I do not know if it is as you intend it, but SC already has Price Changes Per Bar.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
