Thx. Getting there.

The solution to #2 though seems to imply it won't auto scale though, so I would have to continuously adjust this throughout the day to add my own top and bottom margins. In MultiCharts (and I think NT if I remember) there was an option for how much margin to add above/below the top and bottom bar displayed in the price panel. I'm just used to seeing things a certain way, so the first thing I do is try to make it look like I am used to it looking

Mike


The best I have come up with so far is to add two invisible studies that "add" the extra margin

Study Subgraph Add Input = High, Add = Depends on the chart, I use 0.25 for AAPL, Draw Style = Do Not Draw

Study Subgraph Subtract, Input = Low and the rest is the same as above.

Not perfect IMHO but better than nothing.

Infinity AT now has charting, I'm guessin it's the exact same as Sierra just with there name at the top. My question is if I'm using "Infinity Charts" and the Infinity AT dom, is that going to slow down my dom because all the info is coming from infinity?

Gotta love the auto coloring options for plots. Great job: simplistic, fantastic.

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.

Yes, It's SC, don't think you infinity Dom will slow down, but i know, also cos i used it, that SC has some issue with Transact API (It seems due to transact part), and SC is really slower to update price comparet to Infinity/Transact DOM,

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

simplistic, fantastic

That sums up Sierra Charts :-)

I've started using it for multi time frame/multi instrument strategies which are very straight forward and reliable to implement.

I also really like how you can adjust the targets and stops on pending orders before the original order is filled. I primarily use buy/sell stops in my trading, so this is a nice feature.

Test the scale in/scale out function. It is a nice feature with the chart trading.

Big Mike,

You are correct on this one. It's a great feature. In fact Sierra Charts trade from the charts feature is easier and you can do more stuff (like you describe above) than Ninja.

Good comment.

It's a second or two slower than tradestation. One thing I cant figure out is how to get the grid to show up on the chart. I've tried everything.

Maybe there could be a "SC DOM/Chart trader webinar" from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm US central time during last hour of cash session one day.....would like to see someone working sim trades during live market hours (see how all the typical features work).

What do you think Mike?
