One really nice feature about SC, is everything is in one directory. It is purposefully designed, so you can grab the entire platform and move it to another PC with ease. No registry crap, just one dir tree that you can grab.

Exactly, tell me, why would you want to have it otherwise ?

If you program something, just put it all in one directory, no messy things left and right no voodoo registry etc... Sierracharts got that one right. It seems to be they started coding with some cool rules: 'let's make it stable, fast and clean' .. (they forgot simple though...:-) )

What is the column to the left of the buy column?

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.

It's more information about the entries. I should/could have expended the window. See this picture:

Putting everything is one directory is a pre-Windows thing, but very efficient.

Yeah, they forgot simple, but "in complexity lies flexibility".

Using the full functionality of some things is often a bit arcane, but the trade-off is you can do just about anything if you make the effort to plumb the depths.

I have been going back and forth between NT and SC for the past 4 months, hoping that NT would be my final choice. However, I’m leaning heavily towards SC (and keeping NT as a backup mostly because of the gomi indicators). I don’t like the clunky feel of SC but it has several features that I really like. These factors include:
1. It is rock solid and fast. Never any problems, even the few times I experimented with it over the past 3 years. The person I spoke to at DTN told me that their clients rarely have any complaints associated with SC.
2. It is not cpu- or memory-intensive. With the charts that I use its footprint is about 1/3 that of NT (about 70MB vs. 200MB)
3. It is feature-rich.
4. Support is very responsive
5. Its MP charts have recently been vastly improved and are quite good.
6. Replaying charts does not require any prior recording.

And two other factors that might close the deal for me are:

7. SC just announced support for Rithmic. I want to open an account with Matt at Optimus and I was waiting for this support.
8. For volume analysis, I am aware that SC claims a 1 second resolution. However, when I did a 1-week comparison of SC and MD with both using IQfeed, I was surprised that the numbers were virtually identical. When there were differences, they were often in the single digits and insignificant. During this comparison I looked at the bid/ask volume at each price level as well as delta, mostly during the morning ES session using 5-range bars.

I will be doing further testing but I am beginning to believe that SC is a diamond in the rough.

Maybe a stupid thing, but in Sierracharts you can actually open an configuration/settings window for a certain chart and KEEP working on the other charts, even opening double/triple configuration windows at the same time.

That is really easy for me, in NT once you open some window to change a setting you have to finish that window before you're able to continue working. Not in sierracharts.

I see alot of people are warming up to this platform.Very glad to hear that. I guess the only complaint that most people have is that its not aesthetically pleasing as other platforms. I do however agree with everyones opinions here. For the price, its an awesome platform that does everything ninja and market delta can do combined.
Metal, I didn't know about the DOM, must be new, and i like the fact that you can get 3.30 rt with velocity.
I think ninja is a little too late. Its losing more and more clients.

Ill have to check out the new feature later on this week, when i have more time.
