Hi I am using TOS charting right now but I would like to switch to SC I have built a difference bar chart study between AUD/USD and AUD/NZD forex pairs but I can not see the wicks of each candle. I have attached a chart from TOS chart #1 and my SC chart #2 for a visual reference. Can you please tell me what I can do to make chart 2 look like chart 1 exactly or as close as possible (specifically the missing wicks of each candle)

Thank you

The closest is going to be to follow the High Accuracy Spread method here:

Ok great thank you that did seem to work however I have an additional question, please. What is the best way to add more charts identical to the finished product? I do not wish to do all these steps every time I want to make this type of chart on every pair. Is there a fast way to do this once it is set up for different symbols/assets?

Thank you

You can use Chart >> Duplicate Chart. Refer to:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ChartMenu.html#DuplicateChart

After duplicating the chart, any Study Inputs which make reference to a chart, make sure they are updated to the proper chart.

Excellent this seems to be working great, for the most part, however, I can not seem to get daily or weekly charts for longer then 1 month. I have changed the settings for 200 days but it doesn't seem to download or show the daily bars

In that chart image we can see a study which is referencing another chart. Take that study off. Make sure the chart itself has the data you need, and the chart being referenced has the data that you need.

Being you want months of data, you really should set the chart bars to 1 minute, and not lower for performance reasons.

Also we see several months of data already in the chart image you posted.

Also, follow these instructions here only to post an image of the chart:

Hi I am still having issues getting my daily charts to look the same as TOS charts please see an attached copy of my SC daily http://www.sierrachart.com/image.php?Image=1513355130909.png

Now please see an image of my TOS daily chart of the same see attached

Notice how there are many more wicks on the TOS charts this is imperative to see on SC as the highs and lows are extremely important how do I make these two charts look the same or SC is not going to work for me.

Thank you

Really the proper way to do this is to calculate the spread based on the tick by tick data. Internally Sierra Chart does have this capability.

It is something that we just need to release to users but the problem is it would only be able to generate this data based on the current data.

Not historically. So the historical data would have to accumulate over time.
