Hi

Don't want to double post, but maybe it belongs here. SC also improved on the footprint stuff, so it is a good tool for watching order flow.

chrislib,

Your screenshots are very similar to the GOM stuff. Please can you share your studies and/or studies collection. In the alternative, could you post a link where I can obtain the studies setup.

sierrachart just needs a better marketing department but then again I don't want them to spend on it and raise the price so lets just say its a rare find.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Cory,

I thought I could load the Point & Figure studies to get this your setup above. However, it did not come at all near what you have. Please can you share the book chart ?

Cory,

6E is given me a tough time in the PandF setup. ES, CL, and GC are OK.

When I get 6E to form fairly OK (see my attached screenshot on the right), the vertical axis (i. e. price axis) displays prices to ONLY two decimal places. When I tweak it to display the normal four decimal places, the PandF just disappears.

Also, I cannot get the yellow box (see your attached screenshot on the left; see the RED arrow) to display at all in all the instruments.

Aaaaaaaaaaaah !!! I have Version 569. I'll download and upgrade to Version 580 right now. Version 581 is called pre-release; I suppose that is a BETA version.

Cory,

What do you use NT for ? What do you use Sierra for ? Sierra has features that gives it an edge (in my experience so far ---> look at the PandF chart; look at chrislib's chart) and I'm therefore making a swift switch. I need your views before I subscribe to Sierra next week.

Lolu

many reasons but the best one its free. My brokers are OpenEcry and AMP future.SC is fast, compact and light on CPU I run it out of an ext hard drive. But NJ has a much bigger community.

My chars is simply Volume at price indicator (VAP) + bid x ask bar combination, which you can select in the chart setup. I had a request to SC support to align VAP to the left of bid x ask bars, and it was done in two days! So there is nothing special to this, except you have to be on SP5. The trial also gives access to the full range of bar types. But as I stated before, the best thing specially compared to NT, is the replay feature. You can go to every date/time right from one chart and replay, by still having your other chart showing real time data. No disconnection from the data feed!

Sorry I can't post the chartbook, because I don't have 5 posts.
