@cory @rainman2, there some improvement with these study instead a normal way to build cumulative delta bars?

P.s. I use the Summation study instead Cumulative Sum of Study, cos i can input the bid ask vol directly from main chart without having to add the Bid-Ask Vol study.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
Luke.

BigMike,

I donít know if you figured out how to set up CD but, if not, you can do what has been suggested above or below are specific steps of one way to do it.
1) Once you have your intraday chart set up you add 2 studies. First add the BidVolume vs. AskVolume study and then click the Settings button. Under the Subgraphs tab
a) for the Draw Style select Ignore for Ask Volume, Bid Volume, and Zero Line.
b) for Difference (SG5) select Bar for Draw Style. Then under Auto-Coloring, select Based on +/- and then just above auto-coloring adjust for the two colors you want. Donít forget to check Show under Value Label to display the number.
This will plot the delta for each bar. If you donít want this and just want CD then just select Ignore under Draw Style for Difference(SG5)

2) Then add Cumulative Sum of Study and again click Settings. Under the Settings and Inputs tab, change SG1 to SG5 under Input Value.
Then under the Subgraphs tab you will see only Sum(SG1) and do the same changes as for Difference in 2b.

BID/ASK data (BID/ASK differential) is what you need to focus on for data comparison testing.....not T&S data.


SC CD tools link........... Sierra Chart - Help Details - Cumulative AskVolume and BidVolume Difference Bars (Cumulative Delta)

Sorry for mixing apples and oranges... And thanks for the insight regarding data comparison. Anyway, TT data is of equal quality to Zenfire with respect to T&S, and both are adequate for my current needs. I just wanted to move from Ninja to Sierra with commensurate data.

What is the number on the very bottom right of a chart? It seems to change but I haven't yet figured out what it is.

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.

It's the spacing between bars. You can use up/down arrows to adjust the spacing. The letter "L" is new to me, I guess it means Fill Space Locked.

The background color changes if you are not at the end of the chart. Does it do anything else?

I'm sitting there waiting to get a long on the TF and it freezes. This is what I was talking about, does anyone else have this problem?

That looks like Infinity's DOM, not Sierra's.
Infinity/TransAct/ATCharts seems to be a problematic combo for many, based on posts on the Sierra forum.

I've never had Sierra freeze even once in 9 months since I switched from Ninja. Ninja...well that's another story.
