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.

Would love to see the option to allow this list to show the study short name, so I can more easily find things... @SierraChart

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.

Also it would be awesome if there was a way for charts to be opened by chart number -- like "go to chart # xx", or sorted by chart number in the task bar list, so that the view in the window task bar list would be sequential. When making changes to my charts, a lot of time is spent just trying to find the right chart. @SierraChart

@Big Mike

What SC version are you running?

What do you mean by 'Task Bar' list?

If I click on 'CW' (see attached picture) my charts are listed in NUMERICAL order even though they do not appear in numerical order as tabs at the bottom of the Chartbook.

EDIT: Oh I think I see the difference - all your charts are detached - mine are not.

1267. I have multiple monitors, I can't imagine anyone with multiple monitors not using detached charts??

The main "status" window/app (not sure what to call it, but has the toolbar menu you pointed to) is always minimized. No need to see or use any of that for me. Still, the 'CW' drop down is empty for my setup.

I am not following you on this - the list does show the Short Name when specified, in the format
Short Name ID:1 (Real study name). Is this not what you want to see?

Every study in my screenshot has a short name. So no, not what I see.

I would like to see some form of fixed ratio scaling for the Volume by Price study. At present visual comparisons (which is what it's there for) between profiles can be extremely misleading, since a profile with virtually no volume shows the same size peak as one with extreme volume.

Sure. It's clearest when you print the POC values, though it's not exactly subtle in any case:

The numbers bars have the same issue, though in that case you would generally be looking more closely at the numbers themselves.

Gomi's VP uses adjustable (also with hotkeys) fixed ratio scaling, which is much superior.

@Big Mike is this your post over on the SC forum? If not it says SC are going to add the detached charts to the 'CW' list which means they will be in numerical order.

CW to also include List of detached Charts currently open - Support Board - Sierra Chart
