Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Never noticed that when Sierra is loading the charts it makes my CPU go to 100%. Multicharts and IRT rarely move my CPU above 50% when loading them.

Yup, Sierra is much better at multi-threading.

Well hopefully everything is solved now, in the end.


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.

Well, to tell you the truth I'm clueless at this point.

So the computer spent almost 11 hours testing the RAM using Prime95 and not a single error was found. Sierra is opening fine now. Just opened 4 chartbooks at the same time with more than 20 charts and everything loaded smoothly.

The only thing I did was remove all DIMMs from the slots, tested 1 by one, connect the 4 once again, most certainly changing the order and all seems to work fine now.

One of those things that it's impossible to explain

I want to thanks all you guys for helping me during these couple of days.
I hope I can retribute one day.


If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die
