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.

chrislib,

Thanks, once again.

Infinity got my Sierra trial for me which did not come with SP5. I'm on InfinityAT platform SIM (demo) mode. I have just signed up, today, for my own Sierra trial which is for 15 days. I also plan to subscribe to the real SP5 when my trial expires.

if your trial expires, you can subscribe on a monthly basis for 40$ for SP5.
That's what I did, because I can't figure out trading software in a 15 day trial.

chrislib,

I don't know the newly implemented post restrictions on futures.io (formerly BMT). Maybe you can't even receive PMs too. In any case, can you use your private e-mail address to send the Sierra bookcharts to my e-mail address omololuwa@me.com.

Now I mess things up here. Sorry.
I didn't checked the allowed file extensions. So in the zip-file is the chartbook for YM and the study collection for a type of footprint chart. Copy both to the data folder.
Then you should be able do select the study in the drop down field.

Please tell me the common file extensions for Sierra Chart and I will add them to the forum allowed extensions.

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.

There are different extensions, but I think the most useful is .cht for "chartbook", which contains one or more charts with most of the needed information. You can rename them, and change the charts to every instrument you want. For indicators/studies you need .dll and .cpp

chrislib,

The studies collection and the bookchart are all contained in the zip file. I already put them in the appropriate folder. However, my account is not Acivated (that is what Sierra says on Login). I've contacted SierraChart to activate my account.

Meanwhile, I still proceeded to load the studies collection and the bookchart but some studies are missing. The only studies I see are Footprint (Volume By Price), Overlay (single Line), Volume By Price, Custome DLL Study, CountDown Timer, and Current Price Line. Maybe, it is required for my account to be activated for me to be able to correctly load your studies collection and bookchart. Or, maybe this file extension issue that Mike is requesting for, do not allow the contents of the zip file to be correctly posted on futures.io (formerly BMT) forum. If he sorts that out, you may need to re-post the zip file.
