There is not an automated directly available within Sierra Chart.

You can create a custom study that does this for you. Refer to the information on custom studies starting here:
Advanced Custom Study Interface and Language (ACSIL): Introduction

Or, if you want someone to develop it for you, then here is a list of potential programmers:

Just for fun - here is how you do it [cpp file + levels]
Note: it's very draft + done from the default ACSIL study, really slow [as it uses subgraphs instead of drawings], but main problem - how to read the data - you'll get an idea from that

If I'll have some free time - I'll try to re-code it using actual "horizontal lines" objects [instead of subgraphs]

Added another version - using drawings instead of sub-graphs [much faster]
