I see you bouncing posts backwards and forwards with @Big Mike regarding the above.
I wondered if you could steer me in the correct direction of how to create this in SC.
I have created a One minute chart of the symbol TICK-NYSE (which is from SC's own real time Market Statistics service collection).
I have then applied a study to that chart being a SMA with a period of 1 to average the high and low for each 1 minute bar.
Session time is 9.30am to 4.00pm ET.
What do I now do to create the Cumulative plot? Is it correct that I would use 'Cumulative Sum of Study' study?
If so I note you only have the option of producing this for the current session or the period of that chart that is currently showing on the screen. So how do you then create a cumulative plot say since the start of the year?
Thanks for your help.

It's actually even more straightforward than that @steve2222
You have two easy options, which produce identical results. I use option 1:
1) Chart A has TICK, 1 minute bars. Attach the study "Summation", input data is "HL Avg"
2) Chart A has TICK, 1 minute bars. Attach the study "Cumulative Sum of Study" and set "Reset at Start of Trading Day" to "No" and Study/Subgraph to Reference to "Main Price Graph" and "HL Avg"
In either case, set the number of days to load for chart A to be as many as you'd like to look back at.
(Cumulative sum of study gives you the option to reset at the start of the day, which is what I use for my cumulative tick that I look at during the trading day. Summation is just a straight sum of every value on the chart.)
Chart B is your reference chart of S&P or whatever you like. Use the Study/Price Overlay to reference the study in chart A you are using to overlay it, making sure you set the scale of the study to Independent.
FWIW, I've noticed that the SC TICK-NYSE feed tends to have a bit of an upward bias to it, compared to IQFeed, but that's part of the challenge in using TICK, as it is non-standard.

I did not want to make a new thread so I hope I can get some help through here, I would like to replicate cumulative tick onto sierra charts I have try different times with different approaches but none of them net me close to what I am looking for (I'm using stock chart cumulative $tick as a "standard"). I understand that there is no standardization on NYSE Tick that every provider has their on algorithm which makes what I see on stock charts or TOS or any other platform/provider look different to what I might see on sierra chart.
So what I am asking is sierracharts tick nyse (bullish bias)? I say this b/c when I used the Cumulative Study it was mostly up.
I have tried a couple of formulas that I thought were it but were off here and there.
The only Cumulative tick that worked for me other than the one on stock charts was TOS.
