Yes go to the c drive and then the sierra directory copy and paste in there. Then open the chart book in sierra.

Can anyone give me a reason explaining why my charts don't seem to be updating? Price is moving but my charts don't display any new candles nor dots?

(Assuming that you're at the right edge of your chart) my first guess would be your Chart Settings ->Session times are not in sync with the market you're trading.

Copied it to the wrong chart and the settings were off, fixed now. I appreciate the response!

I apologize for all the questions but hopefully someone will be able to answer without too much effort:

I'm confused how these dots are being plotted, as I'm not seeing as many dots as I'd expect to see. Are these dots plotted when a buyer or seller places a market order for over xxx contracts (xxx being whatever filter I chose in the 'exclude <=')? Or is it when a larger seller also meets a larger buyer (ie, a buyer places a 200 market which is filled by a 200 contract limit)?

Also, every dot that is plotted on my charts has a '100' on it, is it working properly? on my chart?

Once again, I really appreciate any help!

Look back at the post on the first page on how the studies are calculated.

Odds are the volume filter needs to be lowered and the alert parameters in the color bar studies may need to be sized down.

Bid/Ask is percentage based so it should be fine.

BookMap Volume Dot(fixed size) Hack for SC:

1-Create a range chart based in ticks, set the period to 1. So for ES this will default to 0.25
1a-Go into the volume filter as described by @pludloe, and change Exclude <=300
1b-Open 2x ScanABVDT study, set one to scan for ask, min,300,point & set the other to scan for bid,min,300,point.

2- Open another chart in the same chartbook, using the timeframe you trade in eg 1min.
2a-Load 2x "study/Price Overlay", and reference the 2 x ScanABVDT studies from your other chart.

*If you want to add in more size filters, with different size/colour dots, then create multiple 0.25 range charts and overlay them on your main chart.

Credits to @pludloe for his work above, and also to whoever it was that created the ScanABVDT

@Neo1

Is there any more development on the BM for SC? Just wondering if you guys are still using this and/or developing for it.

Yes SC is far more advanced now. Ignore the old posts. You can create a better V of BM in SC.
