Trading DOM Questions - Version 2037

[2020-01-22 21:44:27]
NRGTrader - Posts: 314 | Ending Date: 2020-05-03
1.Where is setting to change background color, text font, size, etc for buttons (Buy Mkt, Flatten, BUY, etc)

2.How can I change the text size for the price adder column. I see where to change to bid and ask columns, but unable to find for the price column. I do not want to change any other text font, sizes etc.

3.Is it possible to add more than the 3 columns via the Customize trade DOM columns? I would like to have buy order column, bid size, price, ask size and sell order columns - total of 5. Possible?

4.Is it possible to have more than one VBP "column" on DOM - e.g., one for today's session and another showing either yesterday or maybe the entire week?

5. Is it possible to show the bid and ask quantities as relative bars? If so, how?

Thank you.

1. Refer to:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ChartTradingCustomizingGraphics.php#GlobalGraphicSettings


And then to the following setting:


https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ChartTradingCustomizingGraphics.php#ChartTradeWindowFlattenReverseCancelButtonColor

2. The Price Ladder text is controlled by the overall Chart Font size. Refer to the following:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/GraphicsSettings.html#FontsAndText

3. Yes, this is possible. Refer to the following:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/GlobalTradeSettings.html#CustomizeChartTradeDOMColumns

4. Yes. Just add multiple copies if the VbP to the DOM and setup each VbP the way you want it. Just be sure to set the following Input to Yes:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudiesReference.php&ID=141&Name=Volume_by_Price#Input_AllowSideBySideProfilesRightSide

5. We are not sure which one of several items this could be referencing. Refer to the following setting (for one answer to your possible question), but note that it is only for the Recent and Current sizes:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/GlobalTradeSettings.html#RecentCurrentVolumeBarsLengthRelativeToBidAsk

1. I can not find that option - (please see attached)

2. Yes, I found this meeting, but I do not want to change any other text font, sizes etc. on all charts, just the DOM.

3. I want more than three columns in DOM not on price chart, the trading DOM. The info you provided is for on a price chart.

4. I am unable to get this to function on trading DOM, which is where I want it. No matter the time frame I enter for the second VBP it only plots the most recent sessions info even though I've selected multiple days or weeks. IT plots a second VBP, but only for the most recent session in the trading DOM.

5. What I meant here is the price ladder and the bid and ask volumes at each price - can a volume bar be pale behind the actual number? (see attached - the numbers in buy and sell columns - behind each number, I'd like a bar)

Thank you.

OK, thank you. Also awaiting answer to my last email reply to email to support regarding brokers. Thanks for helping last week getting up and running on Denali.

1. Those settings are global only. Therefore you need to go to Global Settings >> Graphics Settings and make the changes there for the buttons on the Trading Window.

2. At this time, this is the only way to change the font for the Price Ladder.

3. This applies to both the Trading DOM and the Chart DOM. On the Trading DOM, select Trade >> Customize Chart/Trade DOM Columns

4. Sorry, there are some limitations on what VbP types can be put on the Trading DOM. We have updated the documentation for this here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudiesReference.php&ID=141&Name=Volume_by_Price#Input_VolumeGraphPeriodType

5. Refer to the following for information regarding adding the Volume Profile to the DOM:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/GlobalTradeSettings.html#ShowVolumeBars

And refer to the following for adjusting the colors to get them as you want them for the DOM:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ChartTradingCustomizingGraphics.php


---------------------------------

In terms of the emails, the brokers you can check with for lower fees using the TT Order Routing are Dorman and Stage 5. Even with the $0.10 per side clearing fees, you should end up paying about the same amount per contract.

Thank for that info. #2 isn't what I'd prefer, but understand. Same with #4 and thanks for adding the clarification in instructions.

Regarding brokers, so there are no other brokers that you can provide that use TT Order routing? The issue isn't with the order routing fee of $0.10 per side.

You will find the list of Brokers that support the TT Order Routing in Step #2 here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SierraChartOrderRoutingServiceWithData.php#SetupInstructions

As noted there, any broker that uses TT could be used.

What about Interactive Brokers? It's not listed there, but can I utilize them through Sierra Chart or are there issues with them similar to Gain?

Lastly, do you know if Schwab Futures utilizes TT Trading Technologies or any of those clearing firms and therefore would work with Sierra Charts?

Thank you. Trying to solve the issues and eliminate Gain from the equation and work with you. - last piece of puzzle.

Sorry, we thought you were just looking for the brokers that supported TT.

Interactive Brokers is also an option in terms of working with Sierra Chart. You can view the information on what is supported with Interactive Brokers here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/InteractiveBrokers.php

And in general, aside from the TT Order Routing, here is where you will find the list of Trading Services that we support:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SupportedDataAndTradingServices.php

Apart from what we have already listed in the above links, we do not know what Trading Service any other particular broker may support. You can check with them and see, and if they support TT, then we can work with them.

Primarily, yes only TT and then I can only use SC, but thought I'd ask about Interactive Brokers since they are highly rated, Unfortunately I see on the Interactive Brokers link above "no support for interactive brokers data...". That would be a deal breaker as I do not want to go down the Gain?OEC data issue path again.

I stumbled across Tradovate and they seem to use Dorman as FCM. DO you or any users here have any experience, good or bad, with Tradovate? I presume since they apparently use FCM I could eliminate all other trading platforms and only utilize SC with Tradovate?

Sierra Chart does not support Tradovate despite what they say.

What do you mean despite what they say? Even though they use Dorman as FCM - meaning if I used your Denali data feed and Sierra Chart order routing -that wouldn't work? Just trying to gather all info. If the answer is no, then I will cross them off.

Basically we do not recommend Tradeovate because it uses a CQG connection which they may phase out according to them, and it is not the preferred method of connectivity.

And also if you use the Sierra Chart order routing service this is not going to work with Tradeovate.

Alright. I’ll cross them off. This is confusing though since the info in the link states “or any IB that uses one of these as clearing firm”. Tradovate uses Dorman.

Sierra Chart Engineering - Posts: 81406 | Ending Date: 2020-06-09
Yes but the difference is that you cannot use the broker Tradovate since they do not support TT even though they work with Dorman .

DOM question. Version 2041.

If I have several orders all at the same price, how can I click on the cluster of orders on DOM and move ALL orders? It's cumbersome at best to require moving each order.

There are these commands available for Attached Stops and Targets:

Yes I found these two options before I posted, "Move Targets to Price" and "Move Attached Stops to Price". Choosing those requires confirming that each order needs moved to the price. If you have 20 orders, that's cumbersome. Is there an option to elect "MOVE ALL"? If not, could it be added? Thank you.
[2020-01-31 15:03:54]
John - SC Support - Posts: 1560 | Ending Date: 2020-04-29
Those options do move all the Targets or Stops to the selected price.

You can turn off confirmations for just the Order Modifications if that is what you are looking for. Refer to the following:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/TradeWindow.html#ConfirmOrderModifications
[2020-01-31 15:23:12]
NRGTrader - Posts: 314 | Ending Date: 2020-05-03
OK, thanks. It would be helpful if you could confirm "move all orders" or choose orders to move. That is leave the order confirmations on, but when moving multiple orders and option of move all or a portion. Possibly as simple as a quantity selection. If have 20 orders, when select move a popup occurs for quantity then can choose 20 or some potion thereof. Sometimes a trader may desire to move all orders and others times only a portion.

Sierra_Chart_Engineering - Posts: 534 | Ending Date: 2020-11-26
We will make sure there is only a single confirmation when moving multiple targets or stops.

Thank you.

Is there an option somewhere to save all my graphics settings, studies, trade options like confirmations, etc. that I have applied to a Trade DOM window? I'd like that ability so that whatever I set up as my "default" Trade DOM options they can be applied to all Trade DOMs I open. That is, if I open another chartbook with a different symbol and then I add a Trade DOM to that chartbook, my "defaults" are applied.

UPDATE: Can I accomplish this changing all the default settings for graphics in Global Settings and still be able to revert on global back and forth between the SC installed defaults and my global defaults? If so, that is fine. I presume "Disable order confirmations global" on global trade settings is the answer to second part?
