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.

I just opened an account at Optimus and plan on using Sierra Charts. I am going to be on sim for a few days to get used to it.


Papa15

Could you give us an update concerning your experience with Sierra Charts? I have done the same as you, a while back, but I am still struggling with SC (not Optimus). I do know, that for me anyways, SC is more stable - just having a hard time finding my way around.

Thanks for any input.

I really like SC. It took a couple of days to customize it. I did not like the default fonts and settings; it looked like something out of the 90's. However, I just kept poking around and figured out how to change all the settings. The charts to me look very much like a chart from NT. I have found I am able to customize just about everything, from the font, to a study setting, to anything on the chart. I really like the chart DOM feature and the way you can trade with it.

There have been only 2 issues with SC for me. I miss the analytical part for trades and I had a little trouble getting some symbols into the global symbol list. As to the analytics, it turns out since I have a lifetime license with NT, I can see the real money trades I do on SC when I open NT and thus I can use the NT analytics to look at my trades. For the symbols, I post on the SC support forum the symbols I need and SC support adds them for me.

The SC support has been fantastic. I posted a couple of weeks ago asking about use of SC with Ubuntu (a Linux OS). Based on my question and that of some others, SC is actually considering doing a native version for Linux.

My suggestion to you is to not open NT for a week or so, just play with SC. At the end of the week, you probably will not want to open NT.

Papa15: Thanks for the feedback. I find many similar things about SC that I enjoy over NT. Still getting the hang of it though. I like to trade and not spend a whole lot of time trying to figuring out how to program - it just doesn't feel intuitive to me - YET. I am sure most have no issue.

Which brings up a question: I have access to both a Rithmic and Trading Technologies data feed (for now anyway). When plotting the CL contract (Nymex- so it says) using the Rithmic, the right scale reads ##.## - When using the TT feed for CL (CME - only choice that I have been able to find), the right scale reads ####.# I can't seem to change the right scale in the TT feed to read ##.## Maybe I am asking too much, but I have been attempting to accomplish this for over 2 hours now.

Can anyone help.

Thanks for the input and patience.

hit F5, then click "Advanced Settings 2" tab, change the "Price Multiplier" to 0.01.

Yes, TT feed are all integers, but you can use the Price Multiplier to adjust the display format.

I have tried SC on Linux(Ubuntu) but installed it in the WineHQ and Crossover. And it seems to work.

I can get SC to start and log in, but the Rithmic data engine will not start. SC posted last night they will not be doing a Linux version as it is not practical but they are investigating the Rithmic issue.
