no, it is designed to separate the men from the boys.

There is some truth to this, whenever I come across someone that has been using Sierra for a few years they are usually a knowledgeable trader

Have you tried Using DTC Server for Data and Trading in Another Sierra Chart Instance?

hallo neo1 Thanks for the Tip

[SIZE="<font><font class="">4</font></font>"][SIZE="<font><font>5</font></font>"][SIZE="<font><font class="">4</font></font>"]With it wanted to handle Sierra the problem, I think. But this is no practicable solution. I find the programme not badly for a Retailer programme. Only the demands have strongly changed the last 10 years.
The GUI has also become outdated. The same problem also have TS. . .
NT8 has a modern GUI. I work for 3 years with Sierra. Am degree in test with NT8 and am impressed what with Ninja compared with the 7th version has acted!

I also would like to see the GUI change to a modern type platform. I think this could bring more traders to it.

However, in the last few years I have worked with SC closely and got to know their efforts towards stability, functionality and supporting the ongoing effort towards a standard that traders should accustomed to while risking their capital.

This effort from Sierra has brought about traders who can rely on their platform for stability, and having good integrations with datafeeds.

Although design could be more up to date, from an interface design stand point, it has all the core functionalities easily found via its input controls and navigational components. Things such as Volume Profiles are displayed in a manner that trades can easily follow.

Lastly, please consider that many have switched to SC from much better design due to core strengths. From what I see new designs do not make traders rush and change versions either.

Thanks for the contribution
The GUI is not decisive there. Disconcerting I did not find that SC on the new calculators generation (64 bits) is ported. But after detailed tests with NT8 one must admit that Sierrachart has the nose in many things in front. NT8 cannot keep up there. In spite of 64 bits. . . Hence, Sierra will remain my commercial programme. Besides, the thin brokers list, the disqualified NT8 anyway. To egocentrically this model.

The best greetings T.

Put values of studies at the crosshair in Region Data lines

Currently to see the value of a study at the crosshair one must use the 'Chart Values for Tools' window.
(Inexplicably accessed by a different name in the main menu: Window >> Tool Values Window.)

The Chart Values for Tools window is always on top, so it is frequently in the way and needs to be repositioned.

A way to avoid using intrusive windows is to put the study values at the crosshair in each respective Region Data line.

If the OHLCVT data was included in Region 1's data line, it would also allow the user to avoid using the Compact Tool Values Window which must also be parked somewhere.
(The Compact Tool Values Window was added when the Status Bar was removed.)

When inserting or deleting columns in spreadsheets, the cell references are maintained. However any other chart studies that reference those columns are not updated.

Fix the playback price scale


When I playback a spreadsheet trading system, all the charts are updated periodically, and price action is automatically kept in view, EXCEPT for the chart being traded. Eventually, the price moves off the top or bottom of the chart window.

I know it saves CPU time to not scroll it, but then if you can scroll all the other charts, why not scroll this, the most important one too? I should not have to adjust, which often times requires pausing the playback.
