-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.
