One thing that bugs the hell out of me is when the chart prints a new bar, the trendlines get messed up and I have to re-draw them. i have no idea why this happens but its just one of those things i hate. I'll have a trendline from days back, and the current high or low isn't in the picture, and when I zoom out it's not drawn right.

According to this thread:

Data Lagging Behind - Sierra Chart

SC is using local computer clock for time stamping the TT data. It will be changed to use TT timestamp in version 678.

This may have affected time based charts.

Question for you TT guys. I trade CL as you know. My charts are fine, I changed the scale/multiplier so it has the proper decimal formatting. But no matter what I try, the DOM never works correctly (the separate DOM window). I can get it to display the price right (99.50 for example) but the price levels above/below are always screwed up, the depth graph won't work right, etc.

Anyone successfully have the volume depth graph + DOM working on CL with proper decimal formatting on TT, and can tell me their settings?

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.

Mike, I don't see the problem you described. But I don't trade CL, not sure what you mean exactly. Please try the attached chartbook. The chartbook includes a 5m chart and a separate DOM.

With everything set to "1" instead of 0.01 I get this which is all correct, except full integer and no decimals in price.

On the chart, it works fine, but in this separate DOM window I can't make it work.

The tick size is set incorrectly, it should be 0.01 instead of 1 if you use a price multiplier of 0.01.

I am not sure whether this also affect the comparison of data feed made in another thread. I think it was concluded that TT feed is not good enough for bid/ask volume analysis.
