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.

@keymoo

I don't have those hotkeys enabled at all, they don't even show up, any idea how i can turn these on or activate them?

What build are you on?

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I'm trialing Sierra and pretty impressed with alot of things, but is there really not a way to link a quote spreadsheet to a chart? From the docs it looks like this is possible with the non-.NET version only, but that also removes a bunch of other spreadsheet functionality. Linking a sheet to a chart seems like a pretty basic function to be missing.

I am not entirely sure what you are looking for but you can certainly create a spreadsheet containing a number of symbols, and as far as I know you can open a chart ffrom the spreadsheet for any of the symbols as required. This is the documentation:

Sierra Chart - Getting Quotes

You can also link a spreadsheet to a chart so that the data from the chart is fed to the spreadsheet, all real-time of course.

I'm just wanting to link the quote sheet to a group of charts so that when I put focus on the symbol row in the sheet the charts switch to showing that symbol. That documentation seems to say that is possible only using the non-.NET version.

I think that is correct. The .NET version of the spreadsheet will eventually go away if you read thru the forum. It is being replaced with the non-.Net version, and all new functionality is only going into the non.Net version. If you use the spread sheet, then you should be using or transitioning to the non.Net.
