its a user contributed study, they didnt allow any colors to be changed.

best i could figure out was change the draw style to "color bar hollow" then change the color of the candlesticks however you want through graphics settings

Here is the source code for it:

#include "sierrachart.h"
//DEVELOPED BY TCAST
//tcast@charter.net
//SCDLLInit("SierraTrend");


/***********************************************************************/
SCSFExport scsf_SierraTrend(SCStudyGraphRef sc)
{
if(sc.SetDefaults)
{
sc.GraphName="SierraTREND";
sc.StudyDescription="SierraTREND. TTM trend replica by tcast. ";

sc.Subgraph[0].Name="sierraTREND BAR";
sc.Subgraph[0].DrawStyle = DRAWSTYLE_COLORBAR;
    sc.Subgraph[0].LineWidth = 3;

    sc.Input[0].Name = "Length";
    sc.Input[0].SetInt(5);
    sc.Input[0].SetIntLimits(1, 1000);
    
    sc.FreeDLL = 0;
sc.AutoLoop = 1;
sc.GraphRegion = 0;
return;
}

int i = sc.Index;
int len = sc.Input[0].GetInt();
  const DWORD upColor = RGB(0, 0, 255);  
  const DWORD downColor = RGB(255, 0, 0);  

  sc.Subgraph[0][i]=sc.BaseDataIn[SC_LAST][i];

  if( sc.BaseData[SC_OPEN][i] >=sc.BaseData[SC_HIGH][i-len])
  {
    sc.Subgraph[0].DataColor[sc.Index] =upColor ;    
  }
  else if ( sc.BaseData[SC_OPEN][i] <=sc.BaseData[SC_LOW][i-len])
  {
    sc.Subgraph[0].DataColor[sc.Index] = downColor;    
  }
else
  {
    sc.Subgraph[0].DataColor[sc.Index] = sc.Subgraph[0].DataColor[sc.Index-1];    
  }
  
  }
