@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.

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.

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.

And here's a chart from NT with gomi's VP - no need for numbers to make comparisons:

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.

I did a happy dance when I saw the VPOC extensions (and VA extensions too, but mainly the naked POC's).

@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.

What I have shown is all on Intraday charts. No daily charts are referenced.

The settings simply refer to the VPOC being calculated for a time period of a day, one day back (yesterday), using Intraday data.
