And what about SierraChart

I've had to be considering looking at SierraChart lately for some reasons such as NT issues, switching to MultiCharts, Neo Ticker and all that.

Has any forum member had or still having an experience on SierraChart ? Comments and views on Sierra Chart should be useful too.

Hi


Quoting 
I just left NT last year (that's why I am here from time to time) because of the historical bid/ask disaster in NT. I have also used MD for some time, but the monthly charge is too expensive for what you get. So I was testing all the others which are mentioned here. But none was able to deliver chart trading with DOM on chart, fast to use replay feature, and some sort of bid x ask/Volume at price charting. I am using SierraChart now, and think for me it is the best package for a very reasonable price. The only thing is, for the time being, they just support TA and OEC feed. But it is stated that TT feed is coming

Don't want to double post, but maybe it belongs here. SC also improved on the footprint stuff, so it is a good tool for watching order flow.

sierrachart just needs a better marketing department but then again I don't want them to spend on it and raise the price so lets just say its a rare find.

Cory,

I saw your name on Sierra Support Board/forum and I did a post to the "Sierra-->Cory" in respect of Renko chart on Sierra.

I just realized that Sierra is good after several years of my disinterest in it.

Cory, thanks once again.

Have a look at my Gold chart. I threw in EMA 50 and BidVolume vs AskVolume studies. ES (which is the chart book you sent to me) and YM are OK too.

However, CL display very few bars/candles and 6E does not seem to load because no bars/candles are displayed at all. I'm lost on what could be responsible for this. Do you have any idea why I'm having 6E not displaying any bars/candles; and CL is displaying very few bars/candles. My other 6E chart books form very well.

the reason is i set box size = 1 , in es 1 = 1t but for CL you may want to try .001 for box size

0.10 works for CL.

0.001 works for 6E but the boxes are small; until I change your "Range Bar --> 0.25" to "Days-Mins-Secs --> 0-5-0" (i. e. 5 minute intrabars period). I'll work with this setup.

chrislb's chart screenshots in post 3 above are very interesting. They are similar to the GOM stuff. I wish that chrislb can post his setup or studies and study collection files.
