Welcome to futures.io.

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.

It's a NT problem ... hoping for NT 8.1 ;-)

Nope - this is a Jigsaw problem - or rather, a problem we can resolve in Jigsaw - just not on your charts, only on our D*S.

Fix in process.

Cross your fingers..

Thanks for the new 5.2.8 version with the fix. Works well.

SC version of Jigsaw


Hi Pete,

It would be very nice to have a Sierra Chart version of THE best tools out there...

Meanwhile I'll enjoy Jigsaw tools on Ninja as far as possible.

THANKS

volume profile refresh for OEC/S5

@DionysusToast

hi Pete,

I am back with another question/request/beg.

first the question.

Before the past two updates, when i opened up the S5 trader at anytime, D&S would automatically populate the volume profile based on the the start of the "session" (in quotes because the way OEC does sessions is inexplicably idiotic). But now, when i open S5, the volume profile starts collecting from the point where Jigsaw initiates the connection. is that by design? or do i have something in the settings that is causing this? For ex: During ETH, if i open up S5 at say 10 PM EST, the D&S used to download the volume for the entire ETH. however now, the construction of the vol profile begins at when D&S gets the data connection.

Now the request. I mentioned this in the chat room as well and I hope this would be useful for other OEC/S5 users. the volume profile clear button is FANTASTIC....but if there was ANY way to incorporate an option that clears the profile at a user specified time that would be MORE FANTASTIC. if someone cannot be at the screen at 9:29:29 to manually click the button it sort of makes it difficult afterwards, as you already know, it does not give the right picture. another scenario (from personal experience multiple times). say the clear profile button is pressed at the right time and afterwards OEC/S5 crashes and it shuts down or has to be restarted, the vol profile just downloads the entire OEC "session" instead of the time (9:30:00) the clear volume button was pressed.

Any chance this could possibly be considered, I, and most likely many OEC users, will be very very grateful. you are the only hope because OEC is deaf when it comes to listening to their customers plea for actual session breakdown settings.

A massive jigsaw fan...

Cheers

I second that idea. Jigsaw would make SC the most complete trading platform. (For me).
Currently using 3 different softwares because of that.

Funny you should say that.

Something in the pipeline for Sierra lovers. Hopefully in the next few weeks.

It's supposed to grab the profile since the start of the session. As you know with OEC - that's right back to the start of the Globex session.

We can fix this (and so could OEC) but right now I am whipping 3 developers over a larger project of which this is a part.

If I can bring this portion forwards, I will - otherwise it's scheduled for Q1 2015.

You had mentioned that the session profile of OEC was scheduled for next year in response to my prior question on this message board. But i thought the clear profile button was the workaround and you had moved it up from 2015 to now and this was it. So there is additional functionality scheduled in 2015 for the OEC sessions problem then. thanks a LOT. it will be VERY useful considering OEC does not care.

Regarding the D&S not downloading the entire OEC session profile when i start OEC trader at a random time, i don't think i have explained my question correctly. I will try to capture a screenshot of this to give you a better idea of what I am trying to ask.

Once again, thanks a lot for your consideration and all your time.

Have a great remainder of the weekend.

Correct - the clear profile is a work around.

The session settings is still needed to properly automate it and is part of the larger project.

I look forward to seeing the screen shot.

I think it's not so much OEC don't care as much as they have a lot on their plate right now. They have actually been very reactive to stuff we've been discussing with them. For instance the improvements in bid/ask matching they made in late 2013 was partly as a result of discussions we had with them. They've also done work behind the scenes to support what Jigsaw is doing as well as giving us heads up when they do something that may interfere with the way we integrate.

So OEC have been instrumental in use delivering on that platform and helping both with requests from Jigsaw and Stage 5 (and sometimes both), it's just a lot of that is invisible to you as you just see the finished product.

boss, if you say so we will give OEC a pass :-). if they helped you out, they helped us out. thanks to them.

Regarding the screenshot, i have been very busy at work and haven't had a chance to actually pay much attention lately. I will try to share the screenshot as soon as i get a chance. apologies on that.
thanks for all your help and your time.
