BTW, venturing now oops, but I want to make it clear that @aslan has always been the "here you are, glad to help" guy, always giving back to the community and helping others. I didn't mean to imply otherwise!

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

dll

Question on the dll model? Sierra Chart distributes indicators as dll's. Of course, you can also provide the source, but fundamentally, a dll is what you distribute.

If the source is the only thing provided, can the end-user create the DLL on his own?

Normally yes, but only if it compiles with the built in compiler or the person can build a project in visual c++.

Kase Bars

Attached is the Sierra Chart source file for Kase bars as described in the Kase thread. This is a port of the NT version. I am supplying the source, because I can not supply a dll here, so you will have to build it yourself, which is not hard. Place the source file in your sierrachart\ACS_Source directory, and then starting at step 9, follow these directions.

It can be applied to both tick based and other types of charts, but if you want accurate bars, it should really be applied to a 1-tick chart though. You may also need to make sure that your historical data is being stored as ticks (larger files, but you are saving all of the data). Be sure that the number of days of data to load is not too high to keep load times lower.

To apply, bring up the studies window, Add Custom Study, should see a KaseBar entry in tree, if you built the dll correctly.

@aslan, you can zip and then upload the DLL. The other moderators have changed my mind on allowing DLL's.

Thats what I love about this place, if there is a good reason, things change.

Attached is the zipped dll. Just unzip and place the dll in your sierracharts\data dir.

Was that a wise move?
Or has something changed to make it safer.
