-Sierra chart has more studies out of the box than 99% of all trading platforms.
-Sierra charts footprint is called "Numbers bars"- https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/NumbersBars.php

The cost of Sierra chart is very cheap. They basically give it away.

"Free markets work because they allow people to be lucky, thanks to aggressive trial and error, not by giving rewards or incentives for skill. The strategy is, then, to tinker as much as possible and try to collect as many Black Swan opportunities as you can"

I'll second Sierra Charts, it's a great charting platform. I don't trade from it, but that may change soon.

I pay just under $97.00 per month and that's using Sierra's data feed (Rebranded Barchart data) and I find it fast and accurate, no complaints. Full CME group, CBOE, Eurex and HK markets (Non-professional). I researched basically all of the major datafeeds and using Sierra's was the best deal.

SC is capable of anything you can imagine, is constantly updated and while it does take a little while to learn it, it's worth the time and effort.

As for creating what you need, there's plenty of people out there that will share their chartbooks with the community, I've shared two on this forum that were given to me and I then modified them and shared the chartbooks.

Plenty of people here at FIO will help and there's tons of info and related files at the Sierra support board.

I have an order book study that I'll try and find (I don't use them) and will post a screenshot, perhaps it's what you're looking for and will give you an idea of what's possible with Sierra.

You can always do the free trial and make sure it's right for you.

I found the chart book I was referencing, here's a screen shot of it and I've attached it here and will also upload it to the Elite Downloads section.

It has order book / number bar type of study, market profile and volume profile.

I take no credit for it, it was given to me. Feel free to use, modify and distribute as desired.

With volfix you get ALL datafeeds/exchanges (level2) for under 100$ a month - without even open a trading account...

So for me is there maybe something illegal... cme without non-pro alone costs you 90$, same with eurex... and there are mostly every exchange in this platform...
I ask at several datafeed provider to get such cheap packages - no one of the industry feed providers can give you this conditions

Some people slso talking about that volfix is under investigation from several exchanges

If you asking at volfix from where they gets the data, you dont get any answers...

So, for me a very strange situation, better go with sierra or atas.

Use your brain - when a company sharing datafeed in worth of several hundret dollars (also ICE) for under 100 bucks, something went fundamental wrong!

So the evidence is the product itself and the exchange fees - EVERYBODY have to pay!

I can only quote what others say... and use my brain

where do you see that it costs less than $ 100 a month?
It costs $ 150 a month to be informed better before speaking

first connect the brain and then open the mouth
