As far as I can tell Sierra has no way of automatically adjusting drawing levels on rollover.

They point us to Adjusting Chart Drawings to Match Futures Contract Rollover Difference but that appears to be manually initiated per chart and per symbol.

I started using a lot more charts recently and the manual process is tedious. It works but is very repetitive and time consuming, something a computer should be able to do with ease.

Please let me know how you do it!

Thank you.

You are right. All manual. It is a real pain in the ass if you have many charts and markets to deal with and some contracts roll monthly. The process is also tedious and requires you trawling through the message log. The problem is even worse if you are using markets not supplied via their own data feeds since they removed continuous contract building ability from other data sources.

Really. I was using Rythmic and had to switch. The support for competitors data feeds appears to have degraded over time.

It is more than degraded. It is intentionally ceasing. They do not want any customers that are not using their feeds. I am forced to leave because of this, despite me being a loyal customer for over 10 years. Yes, I'm bitter about having to do this. It was tremendous effort to get used to sierra.
