Thanks @aslan. I don't know how I missed that...

Requests:

1. Auto e-mail update on new releases, or an option to subscribe to one, along with a very brief change log on release.

2. Concurrent Non CLR version with new releases, and listed version number for Non CLR version.

3. Label in titlebar of running SC instance if CLR or Non CLR version.

Ok, do what Aslan says and also change the default tool to the hand tool under Tool Settings >> General >> After Single Tool Use Change To: Hand. Then (this is where the magic happens), under Tool Settings >> Chart Values, check the second box for "Always on When Using Other Tools".

All this lets you drag the chart every which way and still have the cursor on all the time. Phew.

Enabling the always on when using other tools, makes my charts look super jumpy, as they auto scroll in other timeframes while I am using the drawing tool. Do most people use this setting?

Yes, but not in any official capacity.

Mike

Will they implement requests posted here only for futures.io (formerly BMT) members, or do we have a better chance also posting through their support board?

I am biased of course.

I've seen them implement majority of requests made here. You can of course to take the risk to post directly on their forum, I am sure they prefer that

I prefer you post here

That's great to see. Posting on their forum may indeed be a risk for me, as I have a lot of potential requests , and don't want to get yelled at , lol. Although I guess the only downside here is they probably don't have time to ackowledge/confirm/reject/ridicule our requests here, so we won't know the status of them.

Being new to SC and testing it out, I have a long list of either requests, or questions on how to do something. I know SC support seems to get annoyed (understandable) by "excessive posting" by one user on their boards, so wondering how would you recommend to address them here, ie one post, individual appropriate threads, etc?

You can start new threads as needed (if topics don't already exist) here in the Sierra subforum on futures.io (formerly BMT), there are SC users here that will help.

For the "High Low for Time Period study" an option to plot a mid line with an optional ability to plot continuous would be nice.

You can plot a midline using the Average of Two Subgraphs study, but not sure what you mean by ability to plot continuous.

I agree this could be improved, but I currently use different icons and titlebar names for my 3 instances. I changed the target for the windows shortcut by appending "/chartname:customname. Also, you can just use change icon under the windows shortcut properties and there are a small number of different options.

Support for creating extensions that are not related to a specific chart or dom would be great.

The extensions should have access to the api's for trading, positions, datafeed and quote spreadsheet.

the platform is excellent value, robust, handles tick charts no problem, the delta market numbers are very stable, in NT the delta market indicators are not so robust, this platform is truly advanced, and I have tired all of them, I very sad to report, the disadvantage for me is that you have to be a whiz programmer to get an indicator up and running if you have an idea for a indicator

What type of programming did you try? ACSIL or spreadsheet study? I use the latter because I'm reluctant to learn the ropes of ACSIL. Till now I found only one situation wherein the spreadsheet study did not suffice. I dropped that indicator from my wishlist.

When right click on the Region Data Line, it shows all the indicators in the region. It would be nice to have a check box in front of each indicator to quickly hide or show the indicator.

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...)?

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:
Rancho Dinero | Drawing Range-Based Volume Profiles

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.

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?

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.

What I would love to see is anti-aliasing of chart drawings and moving averages like Ninja. My diagonal trend lines and MA lines look like they were drawn in the 1980s.

OK, I am starting to get bugged by this a lot now too. Must be the slope of my newest TL's, they look like stairs instead of a line...

SC has stated that this would compromise performance, so my question is to what degree? Maybe this use to be the case, but I am having a hard time believing that this would present any significant issue to a modern processor. Is there anyone qualified who can quantify the performance differential? Thank you.

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.

Hi everyone,

And how about dragging multiple overlaid orders (stops, targets) on the DOM all at the same time? If we have three overlaid orders we have to drag and drop one by one... Not good in fast markets...

Unless it is already possible, but I couldn't find out how to do it...

I'd like to be able to plot the Open price on the DOM, similar to how we currently plot the prior settlement.

I'd also like to be able to have the Initial Balance vertical line like on the TPO chart, it would look something like this:

I have not tried this, but you could write your own custom study which simply calls another study that plots the open. SC restricts built-in studies except PreviousClose and VbP, but they do not restrict custom user studies in the DOM (at least you can browse the list anyway, I have not actually added any).

SC has stated that this would compromise performance, so my question is to what degree? Maybe this use to be the case, but I am having a hard time believing that this would present any significant issue to a modern processor. Is there anyone qualified who can quantify the performance differential? Thank you.

I don't believe that for a minute. It's 2012, not 1990. Even the most basic budget PC has enough horse power to calculate the anti-aliasing on a line. It's ridiculous, I'm sure there's some other reason such as it would be a lot of effort to redo their studies. They could start with the most common ones such as MAs, and drawing tools and move onto the others later.

I'm puzzled though because the drawing engine should be separate from the studies and they should only have to make changes in their drawing engine. I do have basic programming skills and no experience of implementing a drawing solution. I have however used third-party drawing modules for my own programs, mostly in C#.NET.

Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about, but lets see if we can get enlighten you a bit. You are spot on that todays processors have horsepower to burn, but you have to be able to use it. It can be rather difficult to use all of those cores/threads, especially when the drawing for a program all happens on the main thread. There are newer code architectures that deal with this, but Sierra is clearly written in the old school MFC windows model. I do not expect Sierra to move to the new model, as they have said they are doing everything they can to get rid of .Net, which you need to embrace to move to the new model.

You are also right that the drawing engine is separate, in fact the drawing engine is provided by the underlying runtime (again part of MFC). That old API does not support anti-aliasing, so you would have to do it yourself. You would have to implement something like the Wu Anti-alias algo. You have to do this for every single line/curve that you plot. And what makes it worse, is you basically have to plot into memory, and when you are all done, then bit blast it out to the screen. The other caveat here is that you likely do not get to make use of any video hardware acceleration.

Now will the above break the bank? Perhaps not, but personally, I would rather see my DOM updating in real time on fast days than having a pretty edge on my lines. There are also a lot of other things I would like to see in the platform before they spent time re-doing the entire back end for smooth lines, but long term they do need to get away from the current arch.

I was thinking along these same lines. If my DOM updates are less than the expected 40ms for any reason, then whatever is being beautified needs to be cut, period. Said another way, if Sierra promises a 40ms update interval and something they fundamentally do that can't be changed by the user prevents that, then I am not for it. Only if things are as fast as they would be otherwise, am I okay with this kind of modification.

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.

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.

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' .

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.

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 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.

@Big Mike @josh

Here you go, a 100k volume chart with weekly VWAP on chart and corresponding weekly VWAP on the DOM - note same value.




Regardless of whether it is the Chart or DOM you get different (slightly) weekly VWAP outcomes depending on what bar period you use to create the VWAP output eg using 100k volume gives slightly differnt answer to using 2000 Tick for instance.

So not sure what Anthony is going to code up?

Nice. I would want the daily VWAP to be there and to use the session time from the DOM, the idea was not to need to put it on another background chart somewhere. But it really doesn't matter. It was just missing from the available indicator list on the DOM and I asked him to add it because it makes sense to me.

@Big Mike

As @josh said, you can actually put any custom study on the DOM - not sure why it does not list them.

The DOM is treated as just another chart by Sierra.

So first thing is pull up the DOM, go to Chart, then Chart Settings. Change the detail in here to match whatever you would use on a normal chart to create the VWAP you want. So for the picture I attached in the previous post I changed the Chart Settings (for the DOM) to reflect what I assumed you used as the Chart Settings for your 100k chart. So you can change session times for instance.

Then once you have done that for the Chart Settings for the DOM, still within the DOM go to Chart and then Studies. From there you will need to click on Add Custom Study, then select the VWAP study and populate it as you normally would as if it was going on a chart. HOWEVER if you the select Settings for the VWAP study and then the Subgraph tab, make the options as per the following picture. In this way only the value and name will be shown on the DOM - otherwise it will attempt to draw the line going back into history on the DOM!



In the above picture you can change the Short Name to whatever you want eg 'W Vwap' for weekly VWAP.

What about getting the RTH open? I tried "Daily OHLC", but none of the values seem to show up on the DOM.

I assume you are still using the DOM chart settings to create your VWAP line on the DOM by setting the DOM chart settings to 100000 volume using ETH session.

If so, you need to reference a DAILY chart with a session time starting at 9.30am within the OHLC study settings for the OHLC study on the DOM.

This works well as the VWAP study does not allow you to reference another chart, forcing you to set the DOM chart settings to your 100000 volume bars.

Whereas the OHLC study DOES allow you to reference another DAILY chart which means you have to create a DAILY chart with a session time starting 9.30am. This is what I have done above and you can see the DOM displaying Mikes Open is the same as the daily chart open (based on a 9.30am session start) at 1946.00 for Friday.

Here are the DAILY chart settings and Study Settings pictures to achieve this:

My request is ability to limitation of Multiple profiles fixed by time in Volume by price study. For example, 14 days back only. Reason is high CPU usage if I have 180 days back in chart.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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

No it's not mine. But sounds good, except I always keep that minimized. Better than nothing. But ideal would be to list the charts in order in taskbar view.

I would love if @SierraChart did this:

Right now there are like what 100, 200 studies that show up every single time you hit F6? Out of those, I probably use like 5 of them, maybe 10... Would be great if I could get rid of the 95% I hardly use by clicking some kind of checkbox, like a toggle to show all vs recently used, or show all vs a stored favorites list.

I would also like the studies to be grouped in a more logical way. But my purpose in writing is to say that there is a simple workaround to allow you to collect together the studies you use the most. This is by creating a chart with all of the studies on it, perhaps hiding them, then saving them as a Study Collection. When you add the collection to another chart you can just delete the studies you don't want, or just leave them hidden.

You probably knew this, but I thought it was worth mentioning anyway.

Hello,

I have just the solution for such problems.....bigger screens...I started wtih 19s, 24s to 27s...now that I am older....32" screen...currently have 4 and adding four more by end of year.....all are hanging on my wall (Wall Display).

This may sound sarcastic in nature but this is not my intent. Bigger screens allow for larger, longer time frames, multiple screens allow for many time frames. Simplicity at its best.

@Big Mike, I'm new to SC. Trying to find a way to put yesterday's POC marked on today's chart. This conversation makes it sound like you might know how to do that. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

@steve2222, thanks for the response. Wish I had seen it while the market was still open to test it. I now know I should have been more explicit and hope this still works. But I am trying to do this on an intraday chart as opposed to a daily chart like your showing.

Tried using the minute setting to go back to 6pm the day before since this is for CL futures. But there is a limit of 100 look back periods. To get it to work for even the first hour till 10am it would have to be a much bigger timeframe than the - 30 minute charts I am working with. Plus as time moves on the close changes.

I am pretty sure I found an answer that SC did this for intraday TPO charts but it was too intensive for intraday Volume byPrice. Support told someone that the system would need to calculate all VPOCs for all data in the chart.

Thank you for your answer.
