Hello,
I'm looking to use T4 through Sierra Charts for the TST combine. And wanted to know what steps to take. Do I need to purchase Sierra. If so is the basic package sufficient?

Thanks

Thanks guys for the help.

Also would like help with bracket oco. I sim with 1 lot with 6sl and 6tp. But price reads $150 when in fact it should read $75 when sl or tp is triggered. I'm I missing a step? Attached is a screenshot.

There will be a single letter after the profit/loss value you are looking at. What is it?

There are various Profit/Loss formats. You apparently are not looking at Currency Value. You need to adjust the format through Chart >> Chart Settings:

Thanks here's a screenshot.

I'm looking at the ES and the chart setting at default was 25 a tick, so I changed format to 1/2 (previously at 1). Making value 12.50 per tick for the ES. Is this correct?

This is saying 475P, meaning 4.75 points. You need to adjust your price multiplier settings for ES if you want the XXXX.YY format instead of XXXXXX.

Use these settings:

Price Display Format needs to be 1. And you need to set the Position Profit Loss format to Currency Value. Currently you are looking at Points.

Hey Guys
Does Sierra have anything similar to ACME VOLUME PROFILE RANGE.
http://www.ranchodinero.com/acme-studies/acme-volume-profile/

In which you can draw a volume range via mouse click?

Thanks

Tools->Draw Volume Profile (would recommend adding it to the Chart Shortcut Menu so it's easily available via right-click). Note that this is only available in Package 5.

It sounds like you are very new to SC. There are many great tools and options available, but you really need to dig through the software, dig through some of the excellent documentation that is available on the web site, and discover some of these for yourself.
