Sierra Chart Questions

Hello, I have a few questions:

is the a focus button on the charts, like on NT7?
How do I show the trades on the chart, like where the target and stop are?

Thanks

Couldn't tell you on the focus button as I don't use NT.

As for chart trading, check the SC docs:

Sierra does not have a chart zoom.
However, you can left click and drag the x axis (time) to get more/less bars on the chart, or you can left click and drag the y axis (values) and compress/expand the height of the bars (if using Interactive Scale Range).

With the proper settings, you can use the Hand tool to drag the chart horizontally and vertically.
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/Tools.html#Hand

Right click the y axis to see your scaling choices
If using Scale Range : Automatic, double click the y axis to re-center.

Here is more info from the documentation:

Update

I'm still getting used to the platform. The customisation options are quite extensive but coming from NT its a bit overwhelming when you want to set up a basic chart.

I haven't traded using it yet and I suppose this will be the next challenge.Especially with the dom and trade management etc.

So far I am impressed with it. But it's going to take some time to get used to.

Thanks for the help guys.

how to find OHLC of a bar/candle?

How to find the OHLC of a specific candle on a Sierra chart? The title shows the OHLC of the last bar only it seems and doesnt seem to change if the pointer is moved to another candle.

Select "Cross-Hairs" as your pointer option then go to Window >> Tool Values or Window >> Show Compact Tool Values.

Is it possible to edit an order after it has been submitted, e.g., revise a stop loss order price?
