Yea, true. I updated a few settings so my chartbook looks a bit different than my original screens. Also, I use IQ feed so you'll need to adjust the selected futures.

I tried to import it today and it will not load because Sierra charts are now pointing to sierrachartTransactMA/Data and back when you first shared the path was for sierrachartIQ/Data.

Would you mind sharing an updated chartbook please?

Thanks

Thanks for sharing your chartbook. Are you sure about the mid-point? Does not match with others as I checked.

This was incredibly helpful to me

I was struggling with this task and this saved me a great deal of time. Does anyone know why my Renko chart looks so different than FT71's? He uses an 8 tick Renko and my chart from 11/12 looked nothing like what his did during an example he showed from that date. Is it tick size, or some other setting? Thanks again.

Might help the audience if you posted your chart.

By the way are you using SC or Tradestation as your profile says the later.

i have a more specific VP question in SC. i have a profile that is right aligned that dates back to last year. when i scroll back in time the VP doesnt remove the data from those bars being removed from the chart. is this possible? when does does the daily volume get plotted to this VP if using it on an RTH chart?
