Hi Tom,

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, I am finding the Sierra support material and examples fairly limited with respect to this feature. Anthony did a video but it's probably at least 7-8 years old a extremely basic i.e., no intermediate level examples such as multiple exit criteria etc. Optimus also illustrate the spreadsheet trading feature but the example couldn't be any more basic if they tried.

I left the creation of spreadsheet studies quite a few years ago in favour of ACSIL studies due to flexibility and speed, so I'm returning to the spreadsheets after a long absence. I took the time to learn some ACSIL as I love the platform and the support is excellent. Of course I'd love to have a proper paid support line/option but that's just a wish list.

Back to your reply. I've read all the associated material along with "https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SpreadsheetTradingTestProcedure.php" but as mentioned there are still outcomes that don't seem to follow study guides.

Are you using spreadsheets at an intermediate, or advanced level of complexity for testing or trading?

John (SC), thank you for your reply. I'm hoping the example is a little more complex that a a simple SMA Stop and Reverse. Any thoughts re the location of other examples?

Many thanks

Paul
