Chart trader on diet

Does anyone have the skills to make a leaner chart trader in SC? It's way too fat, I mean't put that on my "bad" list. Thanks for you thoughtful consideration of the matter.

Did you get to the bottom of this? Will SC load this information from the data feed or only from it's own database?

Depth and bid/ask are two different things. Bid/ask data is usually just the level1 best bid/ask. Depth is calculated from the level2, which is typically not stored, so it is live only.

I hate to say this, but I would like it to look like the NT trader.

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.

go to CHART > HORIZONTAL GRID OR VERTICAL GRID

Then use NT! When I first started using it, I thought the same thing, not any more. Its not as pretty, but is faster/better than NT once you get used to it.

Did you change your update interval? The default value is a little slow (I use 50 ms). Definitely not slower than TS.

WOW I did not know about this interval. thank you

For the grid, use the Chart -> Horizontal Grid and Chart -> Vertical Grid menu options. The horizontal grid is the same as the scale increment (right click the scale and select scale). This is something that a couple of us have asked to be changed to be independent of the scale unit. Not sure where vert grid unit is specified (mine just does session boundaries).

thanks for the help, i seriously spent an hour trying to get the horizontal grid up last night. as for the chart update speed, it was at 900 ms, and was a little slower than tradestation....just changed it to 50ms so it should blow TS away...thanks again for the help

Can someone explain to me the business relationship between TransAct and Sierra Chart? There seems to be something there more than just "we're compatible". Or maybe I am just wrong. Just curious...

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.

Transact provides SC package 3 to its client and support supposes to come from Transact not SC for that version. If you want package 5 then you have to go to SC directly.
