Log of Changes and Improvements to Sierra Chart

This list contains major items of development, items which are notable, and changes and additions which users need to be informed about.

This is not a comprehensive changes and additions log. It only represents probably 25% of the actual development. There are not version notes for each version. The main Sierra Chart documentation is updated as needed relating to the changes and additions.

In addition to the below listed items for each version, there are also various low-level improvements, issues resolved, and small additions that a release may have which are not listed.

  • 987 Release Date: 2013-06-15

    • Corrected a problem from the prior release where when opening Chartbooks or applying Study Collections, an error may be given indicating that there is an unknown field code or a newer version of Sierra Chart is required. This is now resolved.
    • Resolved a problem from the prior release when using the TT FIX service, where a rejected order would still stay in an Order Sent state and the reject error message would not be displayed in the Trade >> Trade Service Log . This is now resolved.
    • Added a "Cancel Non-Child Orders" input to the Spreadsheet System for Trading study in cells I78 and J78.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 985 Release Date: 2013-06-11

    • Due to a memory corruption problem when using the ACSIL function sc.GetTradeList() from a compiler different than Sierra Chart was built with, the sc.GetTradeList() function has been disabled. In this version and higher it does not do anything. The new replacement function is: sc.GetTradeListEntry(unsigned int TradeIndex, s_ACSTrade& TradeEntry). For more information, refer to the ACSIL Members documentation for this function.
    • The connection to the Rithmic trading platform service, now uses a separate process server which is implemented using GSP. So this acts as a bridge between the Sierra Chart GSP client and the Rithmic API. The reason for this change, is that it isolates the Rithmic API into a separate process to protect the main Sierra Chart process against any faults in the Rithmic API, protects the Sierra Chart user interface and process from any blocking/freezing in the Rithmic API, reduces the size of the Sierra Chart program, and eliminates compiler conflicts with the main project.
    • The TransAct bridge program has been updated. It now will not be blocked by firewalls.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 984 Release Date: 2013-06-06

    • There was a problem with the calculation of the rollover date when the Rollover Method is set to Number of Calendar Days before Friday Count within Contract Month in the Global Symbol Settings. It was too early. This is now resolved.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 983 Release Date: 2013-06-05

    • Support for trading through MTGox. More details will follow. To use this service, select Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings. Set the Service to MTGox Bitcoin Trading .
    • Updated the TransAct bridge files.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 981 Release Date: 2013-05-30

    • Sierra Chart no longer supports loading Advanced Custom Studies DLLs from the main program folder. They must be located in the Data Files Folder. To determine the location of this folder and to change it select Global Settings >> General Settings. For more information refer to this Support Board thread about this.
    • Corrected a problem with transitioning from one futures contract to another when using the Continuous Futures Contract option in Chart Settings with Historical Daily charts, where the transition Date was too late. There generally was not a problem. However, there was an issue in the case of commodity futures. Stock index futures were not affected.
    • Updated that TransAct GSP bridge program to the latest version.
    • With the Numbers Bars study, there are 2 new Column # Background Type input options: Ask/Bid Volume Split Profile Across Bid & Ask and Ask/Bid Volume Split Profile Across Bid & Ask Outline. These are similar to the other Split profiles, but use the maximum value across price levels for both the Bid and Ask sides to determine the bar widths.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 979 Release Date: 2013-05-24

    • Corrected Mytrack Data service data processing issue from recent release.

  • 975 Release Date: 2013-05-15

    • This version includes an updated TransAct interface software to connect to the TransAct systems.
    • Corrected a problem with the interface to TransAct where unexpected orders would appear after a certain amount of time or after order list refresh. These are the result of prior order modifications that were held in the list with an unexpected Open order state.
    • Pending: Support for BTC-E Bitcoin exchange.
    • A whole new interface for connections to external Data and Trading service has been developed and is now supported. This uses a standard protocol that is open source. This allows anyone to establish a server that Sierra Chart can connect to for data and trading functionality. For more information, refer to General Data and Trading Service Protocol.
    • Improvements to the Initial Balance study.
    • Stop orders can now be modified with the LMAX Forex Trading service. Other improvements with the integration to LMAX.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 970 Release Date: 2013-05-04

    • This version does not support a connection to the TransAct Trading service. We are in the process of updating the interface to TransAct and this is not yet finalized, so therefore the connection is not supported. It will be supported in version 971 which should be out in a day or 2. Therefore, if you are a TransAct user, do not update to this version.
    • Added new ACSIL function: sc.SubmitOCOOrder().
    • We have improved the processing of historical order fill data from the FXCM FIX Trading service. One change is that the unique Fill Execution Service ID that you see in the Trade Activity Log for an order fill has a different format. One possible result of this is that on the day that you update to this version, you may notice potentially duplicate order fills for that trading day. If this is the case, then select them in the Trade >> Trade Activity Log and delete them by selecting Edit >> Delete Trade Activity Entry .
    • Corrected a problem that arose in a recent release which prevented the connection to the MyTrack Data service.
    • Corrected a problem from a recent release with the Spreadsheet Study when using Microsoft Excel. Multiple instances of the Excel spreadsheet would be opened. This is now corrected.
    • Low-level improvements to the Study/Price Overlay Study. Session Times now are considered when overlaying bars from a Historical Daily chart to an Intraday chart.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 969 Release Date: 2013-04-30

    • Corrected a problem with the automatic adjustment of Attached Orders when the parent order is modified or filled, where the price may not have been set correctly. This relates to the change in version 968 to always adjust the Attached Orders to maintain the same offset they had previously to the parent order, even if one of the Attached Orders was manually modified.
    • Disabled support for the new Interactive Brokers Time and Sales type data feed which supposedly provides more complete trade and volume data. This was added in version 967 but it has unforeseen problems.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 968 Release Date: 2013-04-26

    • The Global Settings >> General Trade Settings >> Synchronize Service and Internal Positions option has been removed and it is always implied to be on. If you have unchecked this option previously, as an alternative you need to start using the new method to independently track positions in a Chart or Trade DOM, which is based upon the order fills. For complete documentation, refer to Using Independent Trade Positions.
    • Support for BitStamp data feed. This can be found in Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings >> Service.
    • When using any of the Bitcoin data feeds, the volumes are now displayed correctly. The only exception at this time is the volumes displayed in the Window >>Current Quote Window. For the BTC Volume numbers to be displayed properly for existing charts, it is necessary to go to each BTC chart that you have and select Chart >> Chart Settings >> Advanced Settings 2. Set the Volume Value Format to .0001. Due to how the Volume data is stored, you cannot use any other Volume Value Formats. Using another format will give you an inaccurate Volume display. Due to storage limitations, only 4 digits of precision to the right of the decimal point are supported for BTC charts.
    • Corrected an issue where when there are multiple increases to the quantity of an Attached Order due to multiple fills of the parent order, and there is also at the same time a trail order modification, the Attached Order may not be set to the proper quantity. This has been resolved.
    • When modifying a parent order that has Attached Orders, the Attached Orders will always be adjusted to maintain the same offset they had previously to the parent order. This is always the case now even if an Attached Order was previously modified.
    • Improvements to the integration FXCM FIX Trading. Resolved an issue where the Symbol of an order may not be set when the order originated from outside of Sierra Chart.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 967 Release Date: 2013-04-20

    • The Sierra Chart ACSIL (Advanced Custom Study Interface and Language) now has basic functionality to support drawing into a chart window using the Windows GDI (Graphics Device Interface). This lets you draw freely into a chart window using any of the GDI functions. Information about how this works and an example can be found in the /ACS_Source/GDIExample.cpp file.
    • Improvements with the Interactive Brokers Trading service market data processing. With the help of one user, we have learned that Interactive Brokers provides a Time and Sales type data feed which is now used to create the Intraday chart bars. This data feed is only used for a symbol if it is available. Otherwise, the standard data feed is used.
    • Support for the Bitcoin data feed from MTGox. This is set through Global Settings >>Data/Trade Service Settings. Set the Service to Bitcoin Data. all available symbols can be found in File >> Find Symbol. Currently only the BTC pairs are supported.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 964 Release Date: 2013-04-13

    • For the Numbers Bars study, there are new Column # Background Types added: Ask/Bid Volume Split Profile and Ask/Bid Volume Split Profile Outline. If the Background Coloring Method is set to Based on AskVol/BidVol Percentage, both sides will be colored independently, otherwise both sides will have same color.
    • There are new futures contract rollover rule settings in Global Settings >> Symbol Settings. We have already set rollover rules for many of the symbols for the TransAct Trading service.
    • There is a new option in Chart >> Chart Settings named Automatically Rollover Futures Symbol which will perform an automatic rollover of the futures symbol of the chart according to the defined rollover rules in Global Settings >> Symbol Settings if a rollover rule is set for the symbol.
    • In the Edit >> Join Intraday Data window for joining Intraday data files, there is a new option named Use Rollover Rules for Transition which will use the defined rollover rules for a symbol, if they are defined, to transition from one contract month to the next. The specific date which is considered the rollover date, is the date that the transition occurs to the next contract month.
    • Support for the LMAX Forex and CFD Trading service has been added. Support for this service can be configured through Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings.
    • A study named: Renko Visual Open/Close Values has been added.
    • Improvements with chart Values Scale display. There were some issues with the initial revisions of this. However, it is all now resolved in version 964.
    • There have been some internal changes with the parameters for the ACSIL sc.GetOHLCForDate() function. If you are using this function in your ACSIL study, it is necessary to recompile and build a new DLL on this version or higher.
    • If an ACSIL (Advanced Custom Study Interface and Language) study you are using makes a call to an sc. function that takes a copy of a Date-Time (SCDateTime) type or returns one, then you will need to recompile and build a new DLL on this version or higher. Otherwise, there could be unexpected problems with the calling of these study functions. If you did not develop the custom study, then you will need to contact the developer of it about this.
    • Resolved some compatibility issues withthe SierraChart.h header and the ACSIL compiler.
    • The chart Start Time and End Time values are outputted to the spreadsheet when using the Spreadsheet System for Trading study.
    • Various other new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.

    • Continued enhancements to the new Quote Board feature. A Quote Board be open through File >> New Quote Board.
    • Corrected a problem from a recent release where the values of the constants used with the sc.ServerConnectionState ACSIL variable had changed. This problem is now resolved. However, if you are using these constants in your ACSIL function, you need to recompile your custom studies code on this version or higher and use the updated constants. They are: SCS_DISCONNECTED, SCS_CONNECTING, SCS_RECONNECTING, SCS_CONNECTED, SCS_CONNECTION_LOST, SCS_DISCONNECTING.
    • ACS Tool ToolBar buttons can be selected no matter what drawing tool is selected. There are now 50 ACS Tool ToolBar buttons available.
    • Corrected a small problem with the Accumulated Volume calculation used in the Zig Zag study.
    • Corrected a problem which was causing a GDI leak. This was an issue mainly with Quote Boards. A GDI leak will result in unusual behavior of windows within Sierra Chart and also can cause an abnormal shutdown of the software.
    • Various new low-level improvements, issues resolved and additions.
  • 956 Release Date: 2013-03-21

    • Correct a problem from a recent release where you may have to click a second time on a chart after selecting it in order for mouse pointer and keyboard input to be accepted. This relates to recent development with the new Quote Board.
    • Several improvements made and new features added to the Quote Board.
    • Corrected some issues with the editing and insertions of Trade Activity Log entries.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.

    • The study named Average of 2 Subgraphs has been renamed to Study Subgraphs Average .
    • When a Study Subgraphs does not draw all the way to the last bar in the chart, both the Value and Name labels will still be drawn for the last drawn value.
    • Corrected an issue with multistage historical data downloads. A multistage download is when both Historical Minute data and historical Tick data is downloaded for a symbol and merged together. The issue is that out of order historical data may result in the final output Intraday data file. This most likely was the case when using CTS T4. This is now resolved.
    • The connection to the TransAct Trading service now occurs on a background thread so it does not block/freeze the main user interface of Sierra Chart during the connection process.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 950 Release Date: 2013-03-06

    • There have been some changes when using the SC Forex Data (FXCM) and FXCM FIX Trading services, with the downloading of Historical Daily chart data. Historical Daily Data is now also available for most CFD symbols. There are some steps that need to be done to support the changes after updating to this version or higher.
      1. Select Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings >> Historical Data Service Settings. Select the Use Primary Service Server option. Press OK, Press OK.
      2. Select Global Settings >> Symbol Settings and press Update From Server.
      3. Wait for the symbols to update and press OK.
      4. In the case of Historical Daily charts for CFD symbols, like USOil and US30, you need to confirm the proper symbol is set. For those charts, go to them and select Chart >> Chart Settings. Press the Find button beside the Symbol box and reselect the symbol. Press OK.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 949 Release Date: 2013-03-05

    • The Order Quantity for the Spreadsheet System for Trading study is now controlled always through cell J26. There is no Default Order Quantity input with the study any longer. Upon an update to this version or higher, the quantity specified with the old Default Order Quantity input, will be set into J26 if that cell is empty. When J26 is 0 or empty, the order Quantity will be considered to be 1.
    • The Study/Price Overlay Study now supports overlaying the Numbers Bars Calculated Values study from one chart onto another chart. This is useful if you want to specify different volume filtering (set through Chart >> Chart Settings) for the Numbers Bars Calculated Values study, compared to another instance of the study on the chart you are working with. So in this case you can set up another chart with the volume filtering that you require and overlay the Numbers Bars Calculated Values study from that chart to the chart that already has another instance of the Numbers Bars Calculated Values study that uses different volume filtering.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 948 Release Date: 2013-02-27

    • There is now the ability to interactively Move, Adjust and Delete Volume by Price studies drawn with the Draw Volume Profile Tool. To use this functionality, right-click on a Volume by Price study drawn on the chart and select any of the standard Chart Drawing Move/Adjust/Erase Drawing commands.
    • With the Spreadsheet System for Trading study, the Order Action columns Order Types are now only controllable through Spreadsheet cells. The Order Types are outputted to and controlled through Spreadsheet cells J71-J74. Upon updating to this version, certain they are set correctly. M=Market,L=Limit,S=Stop,SL=Stop-Limit. The cells are read/write.
    • The Zig Zag study has a new input named Calculate Zig Zag Volume. When this is set to Yes, the volume across each is Zig Zag line will be summed and outputted to a Zig Zag study Subgraph. This Subgraph can be viewed as a column on a Spreadsheet when using the Spreadsheet study. From there, you are able to do whatever with it that you require.
    • Improvements with the detection of lost communication over a network socket for all of the FIX based services. This is an important update and we recommend updating as soon as possible.
    • Added a Trading: Triggered Limit Order Entry study to support the entry of a Limit order when the selected trigger price is reached. Documentation is coming soon. The study is still under development.
    • When charts are replaying, orders submitted from charts not replaying will still be filled when connected to the real-time data feed.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 946 Release Date: 2013-02-20

    • All of the Spreadsheet studies now support a Number of Formula Columns input. The default is 16 and can be set to a maximum of 40. When increasing this from 16 to a higher number, it will cause the studies on the chart to be outputted to a further right Sheet column than AA. This will require modifying the references to studies in the formulas.
    • Corrected a problem with the building of Continuous Futures Contract charts for Historical Daily charts when using the Chart >> Chart Settings >> Continuous Futures Contract Chart option. The transition point between contracts was not always being handled correctly.
    • Added new TICKSIZE identifier to Simple Alerts for studies and main price graph. This will always equal the chart tick size.
    • Low-level improvements to the High/Low for Time Period study.
    • When using DTN IQ Feed, Sierra Chart now will process the daily volume data to create volume for Intraday chart bars for Index symbols if they do not provide volume with each price update.
    • Low-level improvements with the downloading of historical chart data. In the case of OEC and Rithmic, there no longer are options to choose whether to download from OEC/Rithmic or the SC Server. This is now managed automatically.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 945 Release Date: 2013-02-13

    • Additional improvements to the Trade Management by Study study. For documentation, refer to Study Controlled Targets and Stops.
    • With the Volume by Price study Point of Control highlighting on a Volume Profile, it is now a minimum of 3 pixels thick and we ensure that it is always visible when there are volume bars overlapping.
    • The TPO Profile Charts time scale has been improved to show the date and time of the start of the profile where the profile begins. The old times cale display has been completely removed for TPO Profile Charts.
    • Minor changes with the various ACSIL trading functions to prevent them from performing any actions while historical data is being downloaded or across historical data during a full calculation.

    • If you are using the sc.GetStartOfPeriodForDateTime function in your study function, your study must be recompiled version 944 or higher for it to work properly. Otherwise, there can be instability.
    • Improvements to the Auto Retracement/Projection study.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 941 Release Date: 2013-02-01

    • Improvements to the Percent Change since Open study.
    • A new version of the Numbers Bars study has been developed. Its name is Numbers Bars V2 . As we have added to the functionality of the Numbers Bars study and have added Inputs and Subgraphs, it has become somewhat confusing with configuring it and it still did not have all of the flexibility it should. The new Numbers Bars study has a much more logical organization of Inputs which lets you fully configure in an orderly way each Numbers Bar column. It no longer uses any Subgraphs for color and display control.
    • Added new study named: Trade Order Management Based on Subgraph. This study lets you control a working Stop or Target order based upon the value of a Study Subgraph on the chart. This allows for dynamic management of Stops and Targets based on studies.
    • It is now possible on the new Quote Board to left click twice on a symbol in the first column to modify that symbol. Pressing the Enter key when a Quote Board cell in the first column is highlighted will allow you to edit that cell.
    • Numbers Bars Pullback Data changes:
      • Global Settings >> General Settings >> General 2 >> Enable Volume At Price Pullback Calculations has been removed and replaced with a new per chart value Chart Settings >> Advanced Settings >> Historical Pullback Data option.
      • The new Historical Pullback Data option is a combo box with several options. Refer to Historical Pullback Data in Chart Settings for the option descriptions.
      • The historical pullback data is what controls the "Pullback Ask/Bid Volume Difference" value that is plotted in the Numbers Bars study.
      • Regardless of the value of the Historical Pullback Data option, the live pullback Volume at Price data for the last bar in the chart is still maintained.
  • 940 Release Date: 2013-01-30

    • Advanced Custom studies that use ACS Tool ToolBar buttons 1-16 and want to receive mouse pointer events, need to set sc.ReceiveMousePointerEvents= true anywhere within your study function. For complete documentation, refer to Receiving Mouse Pointer Events.
    • Added new function to ACSIL named sc.GetTradeList(std::vector& TradeList) . This will fill out a vector with the trades in the Trade list in a chart.
  • 937 Release Date: 2013-01-22

    • Resolved some issues with the Auto Retracement/Projection study. The previous name for this study was Fibonacci Auto Retracement and has been renamed to Auto Retracement/Projection.
    • Updated the C++ compiler from Watcom to the MinGW GCC compiler. This is a significantly better compiler. It has a fast and reliable optimizer to produce the most optimized code and it resolves some issues that existed with the Watcom compiler where when calling functions with many parameters, the function call may not be handled properly. Upon updating to this version or higher, the Watcom compiler will be removed. To install this new compiler, select Analysis >> Studies >> Build Advanced Custom Studies DLL >> Install Compiler.
    • The TPO profile Chart study now lets you specify the colors for TPO letters/blocks when TPO Letter/ Block Colors Input is set to Use Letter/Block Color 1-18 or Use Letter/Block Color 1-18 for Periods. There are now 18 new Color Input settings to set the colors.
    • Added new Value Chart study to the list of available studies. There are several versions of the Value Chart study around, and the classic one has two algorithms embedded in the code, one for small period values and one for larger periods. The new Value Chart study in Sierra Chart implements both algorithms.
    • Support for historical Volume at Price Pullback calculations. There is the new option Global Settings >> General Settings >> Enable Historical Volume at Price Pullback Calculations to enable these calculations. This should only be used when necessary because it significantly increases memory use. This data is used with the Numbers Bars study.
    • Improvements to the automatic management of of chart window title bars and scrollbars.
    • Added new ACSIL member sc.GetTradeList() function for getting a complete list of the trades for the symbol of the chart.
    • Additional trade statistics have been added to the Trade Statistics tab of the Trade >> Trade Activity Log.

The new menu is dedicated for this purpose and provides a clear uncluttered list of all of the open child windows.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 935 Release Date: 2013-01-16

    • Improvements to the Horizontal Line at Time study
    • Increased the number of Advanced Custom Study tools to 16.
    • Resolved an issue where there may be slow drawing performance when scrolling a chart that has Volume by Price studies. Additional improvements are going to be made to reduce memory usage in certain cases when using studies that use the underlying Volume at Price data such as the Volume by Price study.
    • Added several new configurable keyboard shortcuts for Trading commands. The keyboard shortcuts can be configured through Global Settings >> Customize Keyboard Shortcuts >> Trading Keyboard Shortcuts.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 933 Release Date: 2013-01-10

    • Added a new option for controlled order chart calculations. It is Global Settings >> General Settings >> General 2 >> Use Controlled Order Chart Updating. When this is enabled, then the references that studies have to other charts are used to determine the calculation order of the charts. This is so that charts which are dependent on other charts are calculated after the charts they depend upon.
    • Rewrote the Horizontal Line at Time study.
    • Renamed the Envelope study to Bands/Envelope.
    • Resolved a minor intermittent scale display issue on the Trade DOM that may occur when opening a Trade DOM for a new symbol or changing the symbol and data was never received for that symbol previously. In the past this scale problem would simply be resolved by moving the Scale Values (column of numbers) slightly up or down which would cause a re-center.
    • A New Bar When Exceeded option has been added for the Flex Renko Bar Period Type. This option is enabled in Chart Settings when the Flex Renko type is selected. When this option is enabled, a new bar is not formed unless the thresholds are exceeded. When the option is disabled, there will be a new bar when the thresholds are met like a standard Renko bar.
    • Additional Quote Board development. The new quote board is accessed through File >> New Quote Board .
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 932 Release Date: 2013-01-03

      • Time and Sales Settings has new option to Show Title Bar, which allows title bar to be hidden.
      • When the Auto Hide Charts Title Bar and Scrollbar option is enabled in Global Settings >> General Settings, this now also applies to Time and Sales windows.
    • Continued improvements with the Quote Board feature. There is now a single Settings menu which contains all of the commands for the Quote Board. Additional improvements:
      • A Quote Board is not any longer directly associated with any particular chart. In the past closing the associated chart would cause the child Quote Board to close. This no longer happens.
      • Each individual Quote Board has its own Symbol List.
      • There is a new command on the Quote Board menu to set the link number. This link number is the same kind of link number that a chart has. When a Quote Board and chart share the same link number and you select a symbol on the Quote Board, the chart will change to that symbol.
    • Improved handling of server disconnections from the IQ Feed Data service.
    • Various new low-level improvements and additions.
  • 930 Release Date: 2012-12-28

    • Added the new ACSIL function sc.SetStudyVisibilityState(int StudyID, int Visible). This function allows you to make a study on the same chart hidden or visible programmatically.
    • The connection to the Barchart Data service now uses a direct socket connection and can be used on the non-CLR version of Sierra Chart. The port used is 443.
    • A new FIX connection is now supported to FXCM. This will is a new Service supported named FXCM FIX Trading in Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings. This is meant to replace the FXCM Trading service by using a quality FIX connection. If you wish to use a FIX connection contact Sierra Chart support so we can assist you with the process. FXCM will need to set up your account to be used on their FIX server and we will guide you through the technical configuration. Be aware that this is only for FXCM live accounts.
