Yeah, its a bloody shame that SC cannot provide a single decent study out of the box, rendering the startup experience with SC rather horrible. I've now used it for some time and the only descent charts available are indeed the paid-for ones. The SC developers and chart makers are all sitting tight on their code and even SC's own github is empty, even though google still rembers hits to their repos. IDK, what kind of marketing strategy SC is trying to accomplish here, but it surely isn't being very user friendly.

Then if you do find something, or decided to try to fine tune the default charts, is an excruciatingly time cosnuiming PITA. Time that I would prefer to spend trading and analyzing, and not having to waste trying to hack poorly made default studies.

The one you mentioned above, is yet-another-lame-trading-educator "+ I sell charts" site.

If you find something descent please share it with the rest of us.
If you program, please put it up on github so others can help improve or add to it.

Cheers!

@User912175

To display the DOM attached to the chart in that manner you need to enable the 'Trading Chart DOM' - https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ChartTrading.html#UsingTheChartDOMOrderEntryLadder

The columns shown on the DOM are, from left to right, Bid Market Depth / Buy Column, Bid Pulling/Stacking, Price, Ask Pulling/Stacking, Ask Market Depth / Sell Column, Bid Market Orders, Ask Market Orders.

You can customize the DOM columns following the instructions here - https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ChartTrading.html#CustomizeChartDOMColumns.

As Ackin says above, the small yellow triangles are the 'Current Price Line' study.

When you say study, do you mean chart? As there are certainly many useful studies provided.

I've now used it for some time and the only descent charts available are indeed the paid-for ones.
.....

There are many people (Ackin for example) who share their studies and chartbooks free of charge, there are also many videos available to help get started with Sierra Chart, some really good ones are even linked from a thread on the main support page - https://www.sierrachart.com/SupportBoard.php?ThreadID=9395.

If other people choose to sell chartbooks and studies, that is up to them, as they are the ones investing their own time into developing them to save you the trouble.

Sierra has good documentation... For what he need there are xx examples directly in Sierrachart ACS folder.....anyone who can program takes only the syntax and creates it.

There are many people (Ackin for example) who share their studies and chartbooks free of charge
Look #20:
https://www.sierrachart.com/SupportBoard.php?ThreadID=40354#P259202

If someone else wants a session indicator outside of this person, there is an indicator on my forum that you can download (+ another 450 studies in free section).
https://www.sierrachart.com/UserControlPanel.php?page=StudyStore&SCDLLName=zyp_download_free

Yes, exactly. TraderTicino and others have spent hundreds of hours making charts and selling them for really ridiculous amounts. ... It's really a very weird time when no one creates anything but everyone just wants to share and download ....

It doesn't mater what I mean, because a 1st time user of SC will not have a clue either way, but especially programming studies.

The provided studies are too disorganized, without sane names, and 99% without any description in the SC URL,s it links to. Then they're all blobbed up randomly inside a bunch of "Study*.cpp" files without any in-code comments at all. So if you're a trader and not a programmer, you just feel completely effed, in case you want to add something or adjust some studies. Not a single picture in sight for 99.9% of the studies.

As for the Charts, there basically isn't any! And whatever you find here, are an endless list of links to old 1990's type of HTML pages, mostly without any UI or pictures describing it.

I honestly have no idea how a trading platform where users are 99.9% relying on a GUI, charts and layouts, are only proving long lame text for 99.99% of the help/support content.

There are many people (Ackin for example) who share their studies and chartbooks free of charge...
Yeah, yeah, ONE person out of... who seem to work for SC. Well, sorry, it just doesn't add up to anything.
Everyone keep on saying to "download for free", but in fact, you're forced to signup to his website and provide account numbers your SC account, email and what not. I'm quite privacy aware, so that doesn't constitute free in any sense of the word.

In addition I did contact him and he still have not responded apart from some passive aggressive comments there (and here above). Probably because I dared question him on why he require you to sign up on his Polish website. Sorry mate, I've already had my fair share of Polish and Russian originated trading scams. That said, it is clear he's not providing any source code, just the executable DLLs. Good knows what the Admin right required SC can do with that!

That's not true, I told you that you're right and you have to make it yourself, if it's faster for you ... it was my reaction to the offensive text about email spam (it was your first ever post towards me and an immediate attack...attached file) ... now you're writing something about the Polish website and Russian scam .. after all, I don't force you to go anywhere or install anything .... I have no reason to give source code to someone .... why would I do that?

When you delete those offensive posts, I am willing to register you without a SC account and you can look at the content of the website and read the reactions of other people. I don't work for Sierrachart, I'm a programmer in another field, programming sc studies is my hobby ... And I'm not from Poland or Russia ... but from the Czech Republic ... for you, the whole of Europe is probably Russia, right?

I have written and supported the suggestions of other users several times for Sierrachart to introduce two-element authentication .... or to have authentication for libraries other than through an SC account. It was not created by SC team... so you are really wrong in this, I have more complications with it than you think (for example, transact users)

If you don't like the terms that content creators set then there is not much that can be done, as it is perfectly normal and acceptable for them to protect their work as they see fit. Out of interest, did you have any success asking Microsoft for the Windows source code before you started using it?
