5. You should also be able to drag the chart both horizontally and vertically in the same motion.

Just turn on Support Vertical Scaling/Movement With Hand Tool on Tools >> Tool Settings >> General Tab

Ahh, thanks.

But how come you are aren't helping me with my programming? [User Discussion] Moving Average Predictor - Sierra Chart

I don't wanna hear any excuses, dog died, been sick, etc. I really need the Master, so far all I am getting is people trying to explain to me rudimentary principles of moving averages.

1) I'd like to see the DPL (daily P/L) include the open positions P/L. It did so briefly just after they introduced it, but was removed.

2) I'd also like to then be able to display the DPL in the Trade Window's Internal P/L field. Currently only the open position P/L is displayed, and there is no longer an option to display the DPL when flat, so it just displays 0.

https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/error.php

Since I repeatedly scale in and scale out, my goal is to get a P/L display from flat to flat. I can live with the DPL if it includes the open positions P/L.
As it is, the open P/L reduces at each scale out, and that scale-out P/L gets moved to the DPL.

The two P/L fields on the Trade Window are useless for me:
1) The Internal P/L field doesn't show a flat-to-flat P/L
2) The Actual P/L field shows TT's erroneously calculated open P/L based on the average daily price, not the average entry price.

I currently use a spreadsheet study to calculate the DPL+openP/L, then display it on the chart with the Text (Large) Display for Study study. I'd like to reclaim at least the Internal P/L field.

SC needs to explain their available features better but that is kind of impossible since they keep adding/tweaking stuff.

I would just love a daily loss limit feature.....it would close your position if you exceeded a user set value.....

My focus is on:
1. Avoid the opening chop.
2. Honor stops
3. Ensure reward > risk on all trades

Here is my wish list:
1) Pullback Column for the Numbers Bars Study
2) Faster way of selecting number of contracts in the Trade Window
3) Iceberg Orders
4) Display of the "Estimated Position In Queue" in the Chart DOM
5) Vertical scrolling of the chart with the mouse wheel (fill space is locked)

Hi Mike,
the Pullback column shows the activity since the last price extreme of the current bar was created. If a high was last created, activity since that high became the high will be shown in the Pullback Column. If a low was last created, activity since that low became the low will be shown in the Pullback Column.
It is periodicity independent, which means it does not matter what periodicity you choose. The Pullback Column will just monitor the moves off the high and low of the current bar to provide you with an intra-bar way to monitor volume and delta as price trades. It is usually added to the rightmost side of the Numbers Bars Study. I hope to post an illustration asap.

Does this exist in any other platform?
