OK, I am probably blind again.

Where exactly is the Sierra Chart reporting tool to show my total PnL for the day? I have two or three trades windows with executions, but no summary PnL. I took a lot of trades tonight with CL exploding, and I took them in SC, can't find the reporting tool, and the Velocity client portal is not refreshing my current PnL.... so I am not sure where I stand, lol.

Bed time for me.

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.

The total daily PnL is under Trade Positions Window, and all the single trade under Trade Activity Log, filter by Fill Activity.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

But this has no way to show a specific date range... ??

Nope, the reporting is completely lacking IMO. I read this post and was less than enthusiastic about their response. I took it as lip service and that they didn't feel there was really a problem and so I added my two cents, but then they responded by saying they had plans to upgrade it, so hopefully they do.

@Big Mike, @vegasfoster, like @papa15 said, maybe you can do this for now:

......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.
.............................................

P.s. or export the Log and using Excel.

Emini Nasdaq Futures Intraday March 2011 Contract--not updating?

Hi,

It's around 10am EST and my NQH1 contract hasn't updated on my timed bar charts or tick charts since around 1am est.

All my other symbols are updating fine (ESH1, crude, etc...)

I tried updating intraday data from a 'set' point for the chart and in general; no luck.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

For those doing volume studies SC's newest version includes bid/ask diff, bid/ask sum, and bid/ask net diff. at the bottom of the volume bar chart. Great additions. It should be simple to add cumulative differences given what they already provide. It may be more difficult to get them to add COT but hoping that they will add it soon.

Thanks for the info. What's COT? Can you point me to any reference?

What's the 3rd row Ask/Bid Net Difference at the bottom? Is it the cumulative sum of the first row (Ask/Bid Difference) since the session start?

COT is essentially the bid/ask difference after the last tag of the bar high or bar low. This is extensively discussed at

https://futures.io/elite-circle/1342-volume-ladder-ninjatrader-70.html

Check out post 691.

No it is not. It's the difference of the ask/bid differences between a bar and the preceding one.

All of my time based charts just became corrupt. It just shows a bunch of dashes, the tick charts still work. Tried restarting it, I'm not sure what is wrong.
