Hi,

I have followed the instructions for making a Custom Calculated Symbols.
When I enter this value:

11*{AAPL}+10*{MSFT}

It says "not a valid symbol".
What am I doing wrong? Thank you

Hi,

There is no log that appears. Just a message in red that says "invalid symbol".

Is my formatting correct or not?

The symbol is correct. However, the symbol is not recognized as a formula symbol. Make sure you follow through all of the instructions here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/CustomCalculatedSymbols.html#Instructions

in particular step 9.

Hi,

I am wanting to have a chart of 90 of the Nasdaq 100 stocks along with their multipliers.

I can open one chart with 10 symbols and their multiplers, but when I try to make it
20 symbols and their multipliers it won't load.

I have the 250 symbol limit.

Do the multiplier numbers count as symbols or is the symbol limit strictly for the symbols?

Hi,

I am able to make a chart with 10 different stocks and their multipliers.

But when I try to have 20 stocks in the chart I get an "invalid symbol" error.

What is the limit on the number of symbols you can have in one chart using
Custom Calculated Symbols?
My account is set up for a maximum of 250 symbols.

Thank you

Hi,

After a lot of trial and error, I think I have figured out that your
Custom Calculated Symbols can only have around 230 characters in the
total calculation.
When I try to add one more stock symbol beyond this I always get an error.

If I get the 750 symbols instead of the 250 symbol package will that increase
the number of characters I can put in one Custom Calculated Symbol chart?

Thank you

We will check on a limit for custom calculated symbols.


Do the multiplier numbers count as symbols
No. There probably is a character limit due to operating system limitations and that must be what you are encountering.


No definitely not:
If I get the 750 symbols instead of the 250 symbol package will that increase
the number of characters I can put in one Custom Calculated Symbol chart?

Hi,

Please let me know after you've checked on the limit for
custom calculated symbols and tell me if there is
any way that I can work around this 230 character
limit to be able to add more characters in my
calculation.

Thank you

Sierra Chart does not set a limit but we thought about this and since the symbol is used as the file name, the operating system is probably putting a limit on the length of the file name and that is where the problem must be.


There is no solution we can offer.
