SC programming


David View Post

Programming learning curve:

Pretty steep even though I have 20+ years as a programmer. To begin with I struggled to understand how to program it. I had no C++ experience and I found the online manuals very difficult to follow. It made developing NinjaScript seem like a walk in the park.


Hi David,

Like you I am struggling to find good documentation to learn the how to code ATS for SC. Can you recommend any website that might enhance my learning curve?

Thanks,
gulabv

Quoting 
Hi David,

Like you I am struggling to find good documentation to learn the how to code ATS for SC. Can you recommend any website that might enhance my learning curve?

I'm afraid not. Its just a matter of looking at examples in tradingsystem.cpp and other indicator code and then finding your way around the online documentation as best you can. Use the search at the top right hand side of their documentation pages.

At first ACSIL seems very unfriendly, particularly if you have been developing in NinjaScript for three years as I have, however I kept at it and now it makes sense.

Mind you I am still puzzling how to do a few things in ACSIL that were simple to program in NinjaScript. For example, stuff like DrawText, DrawRegion etc are simple in NT 7 , but seem much more complex in ACSIL.

@aslan, could you make some 'better' renko studies, obviously if u are interested in.

If I switch over to SC, I will take a look. I am using the Sock Renko referenced by @cory, but I suspect it may need some tweaks, but it has been pretty good. The way bars are created is not trivial, so will require some time investment.

Sierra under Wine with IQ

Looking for some help. I have been able to get SC up and running under wine on OS X, and it works perfectly until I try to connect to IQFeed. IQFeed client seems to install and run fine under wine, but when SC tries to connect via IQ it hangs. I suspect I may be missing a wine package or something, but have not been able to find any help on the net.

Anyone out there running SC and IQ together under wine?

Hello Aslan, please try CrossOver: Windows emulator for Mac and Linux computers - CodeWeavers

It's a much better implementation than wine.

I'd successfully installed NT6.5 on Linux/Wine some years back now; I got it working to NT launching and "Loading Custom Assemblies ......" and it just hangs.

CrossOver for SC or the like will not work; Wine is preferred 'cos you can tweak Wine. I installed Darwine (a Wine variant) on my Mac whilst trying to install NT natively on my Mac sometime ago, but I did not succeed in running NT on it. I have IQFeed and an expired SC account, so I'll give it a try on my Mac and post my experience.

I don't know why I was worrying about contract rollovers with Sierra Charts. It's a breeze.

You just copy the existing data file for your contract and then rename it to the new contract name and update your charts with the name of the new data file.

Having the tick data in a file rather than a database is a real bonus, though it does seem a bit outdated.

From a programming point of view, I also like the way that you can build up script files with your own indicators and strategies. It keeps them all in one place making them easy to backup and manage.

The more familiar I become with SC, the more I'm liking it.

Same behavior under crossover. SC works fine with built in data feed, IQ works fine by itself, but when SC tries to connect to IQ it hangs waiting. I suspect the sockets are not connecting for some reason, not sure how to debug or tweak, going to move on for now.

I have started trying SC with rithmic today, it's really fast and has the historical data, but the dom depth doesn't work and there's not backfilling for bid ask data.
I will post this on SC forum to see if they will fix it.
