Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thoughts and some findings ON SIERRA CHART software

I'm completely convinced of realibility, stability, speed, drawing functionality, trading functionality and all other tools of Sierra Chart. Never ever I want to go back to any shiny, polished platform with fancy stuff - but freezing 3 times a day or not doing what I expect it to do - while the developers don't know their product and fixing takes 3 month. Sierra Chart in contrast is runnig and running and running; unnoticed and quiet - and if something goes wrong I safely can assume I myself messed something up. If its a very rare little bug in the software: 2 days at most and it is done - sometimes only one hour! Took me a while to get a hang of the software and I am finding out something new every day.
Here I want to share some things on Sierra Charts, it is kind of a little website and a mixture of English and German and will be continued. It comes without any warranty, but maybe it is of interest or help for anybody:

About Sierra Chart
...Sierra Chart Support
...Full-text search on SC website
...Translation of SC menus into German

Sierra Chart Architecture
...Data and Brokerage:
......Sierra Chart - Abilities
......How SC is working with different services
......Examples for multiple dataprovider and brokers
...Sierra Chart files:
......Windows OS: where is Sierra Chart located?
......Sierra Chartís inner file structure

Sierra Chart > Handel | Trade
...Menu > Trade
......SC Orders
......On Orders


NOTE: Depending on the browsers security settings the links (especially to the articles on Sierra Charts documentation) on the little websites might be displayed or blocked - they either are working in browsers with normal security settings or the content needs to be unblocked. This happens since the little websites are https encrypted and link to Sierra Charts website which is not https encrypted but http.

Sierra Chart: On Orders

.
Some more ON ORDERS: I added a new page to the dropbox-based little website with links to the respective Sierra Chart documentation articles on the in Sierra Chart available orders and their processing by some brokerages (InfinityFutures and Interactive Brokers) and some exchanges (CME and EUREX). These informations come without any warranty, but maybe they are of interest or help for anybody.
