Hi All,

Wondering if anyone can give me an idea what these indicators are showing and how I can replicate them on Sierra?
Thank you,

I don't use Sierra, but the middle bit to me looks like a red sell volume histogram in front of a green buy volume histogram, or a sell delta histogram in front of buy delta.
The bottom panel looks a bit like a tick chart but that makes more sense in the lower picture where tick is below zero with price moving down then picks up as price moves up. But it doesn't make as much sense with the upper picture where the large green candle seems to correspond to a drop in tick.
Like I say though, I don't use Sierra so I'm just guessing.

The bottom indicator looks like a detrended cumulative delta.
