The left one is a 60min as you can see in the header. I use it to give me some relevance to time and the daily and weekly vap. The right chart is a 1.25 RB chart.

Today I came to the February part in the blog, with some discussion about SC.

chris,

I've been SIM (demo) trading on InfinityAT platform for sometime now and plan to go LIVE right now. I've actually been SIM (demo) trading on Ninja/Zen-Fire on various brokers platforms (Fx and Futures) for two years now. I just started getting familiar with SierraChart after I've discarded an idea to use it on HotSpotFX a year ago.

My plan has been to place my orders using InfinityAT and use Sierra for my charting activities, with TransAct providing data-feed on both platforms. This is the way I have been SIM-trading for some weeks now. However, I noticed within the past few days that the price movement on InfinityAT and SierraChart differ by as many as 10 ticks during volatile market activities; it was never behaving this way when I started SIM-trading on InfinityAT for some weeks now. This has given me a concern considering that I want to go live on InfinityAT platform.

So, do you use SierraChart for both your charting and order entry/placement activities ? If YES, how is your experience ? Could you also advice me on the InfinityAT/SierraChart combination for order entry/placement and charting activities, respectively.

I traded live with Velocity Future and NT with TT feed. I am on sim right now, because my rules were not clear enough, to get past break even.
I always was into that volume stuff, so I hope things get better as soon as SC implements TT fix adapter. See over here:

It looks like it will take some more time.

chris,

I need to add that it is ONLY the InfintyAT price movement that is out-of-sync with market prices because I note that the prices on NT/Gain (Forex) and two other platforms that I have are in sync and OK. The SC/TransAct data-feed too seems OK. Also, there has been an erratic behavior on my ISP service side within the past few days; and this coincides with when the InfinityAT price movement started to be out-of-sync and sometime disconnects from the InfinityAT services side. In view of all these, and considering that it may take long for the TT feed to come on stream, I may have to opt for SC/Transact or SC/IQ Feed and discard InfinityAT. Do you have any info on SC/IQ Feed ?

I don't know about the combination, but I have used IQ with MD for the footprint charts for some time. That feed is for sure one of the best, but it adds up with two exchanges to more then 150$/month even for just the data feed.
Hope I can stay with Velocity and TT, so I have the same problem right now, with SC/TT fix adapter and no definite answer when it will be implemented.

Cory,

Is it feasible to tweak the HMA (Hull Moving Average) study to plot "Median" price type (NT nomenclature) or Input Data type (Sierra nomenclature). The only Input Data types available in Sierra are "Open", "Low", "High", "Last" and others; but no "Median".

since sc study can be based on other study you just need some creativity. i will take a look later if you don't come up with something.

1) add SMA(1) base on OHC (pink)
2) add HULL(10) base on SMA(1) (yellow)
3) add HULL(10) base on close (white dash)

as you see not much diff.

A Rainbow chart setup on SierraChart; inspired by websouth setup on NT. I'll trade with this next week and see how good it turns out.
