Allow entries on multiple charts

Please see the attached screenshot.

I use multiple time and tick charts to provide entry signals.

I would like SC to enter a trade each time an entry signal is given.

For example:
Buy signal on 15m chart @ 9am: Enter
Buy signal on 60m chart @ 11am: Enter
Buy signal on 3500T chart @ 1pm: Enter
Thus: three entries should occur

How can I do this in Sierra Chart?
Here is my issue: With "Allow multiple entries" turned on. When an entry is signaled on a given chart (ie. 15M), price fluctuations may cause SC to execute multiple trades at that timeframe. I simply want SC to execute one Buy trade per signal, per chart.

- Should I set Reset Condition on new bar to No?

I realize using multiple time/tick charts in SC causes complications, but that should not be the case here because I manage my exits using only one chart.

as always, thank you.

Here is the relevant documentation for this:


You need to combine all the data into a single chart. Use the Spreadsheet System for Trading study on that particular chart. You need one set of formulas that make reference to all of that data.

Allow Multiple Entries in Same Direction needs to be No.
