NM MINI bars or Nmini bars from the custom studies is also used by me to overlay bar charts on other charts.

is this an oversight in the new update or is it being worked on for another update?

Is it possible if certain indicators are going to be discontinued that we get a warning and or a notice?

thank you

if you can re add the nminibars study it would be highly appreciated

the link you posted takes me to a siera link about automated trading? nothign to do with a bar overylay study known as nminbars?

I appreciate your suggestion but I am trying to find out if this indicator is now discontinued or if it is just in the process of being
added into the new system. I find it to be extremely unprofessional that an indicator that has been in the system for years is just one day gone without any notice what so ever.

there are a couple other indicators that have also just disappeared and sure if you want to program a study with the spread sheets good for you but I am not that interested in learning how to do that at this point.

As the future happens and technology gets better and programming gets easier I would hope that the interface for the user of the product would get easier over time and not more difficult.

Looking at so many other 3rd party platforms that may not have functionality of sierra but have a much more intuitive interface with the use and I am actually pretty decent with sierra chart.

But make no mistake about it seeing indicators that i use just disappear does not leave with me a secure feeling

You can do this with the Study/Price Overlay study.
See attached.

Here is the documentation:

that is not the same because i need to have extra charts open for every different time frame. the whole idea behind these new changes was suppossed to be for efficiency now

if i want to overlay say a 30 minute and a 5 minute and a 1 minute over a range chart i need 4 charts open then lets say i do this for 4 different symbosl that is 20 charts!!

instead of just adding a study and duplicating it to each chart. NOT EVEN CLOSE TO AN EQUIVALENT. i appreciate your stab at a solution
but not sure why studies that were there are just OMMITTED?

perhaps we should all just become programmers and make our own custom studies because that what it seems to be boiling down to!
yeah im frustrated because i knew this is what was going to start happening once sierra started doing execution. splitting up the focus.

anyway my "alf" study and the Nmbars studies were both excellnet studies and now just gone. why not just bring em back???

Note: I'm not SC Support; I'm just a user.

The NMBars study was written by Kiwi, another user.
Ackin is another user who creates custom studies.

I'm mot familiar with an 'alf' study.

I'm not an ACSIL programmer or I'd attempt to recreate them.

I suppose you could hire a programmer to create them. Here's a list:

I am not sure why i would need to "HIRE" anyone to recreate anything considering I am a paying subscriber who without warning had indicators I used taken off the platform.

I appreciate your work around and your time a lot. thanks.

I was just venting a little and i know the sc engineer said they are trying to bring backl some of the indicators that disappeared.

he said he couldn't find the alf or the nmini bar study which is odd since they have been under custom studies for 4 years.

This does not make sense:

You cannot overlay studies, from other time frames, onto a different timeframe, without having all the charts open. This definitely will not be accurate at all. The necessary data to accomplish this simply does not exist unless each timeframe chart is open.

instead of just adding a study and duplicating it to each chart. NOT EVEN CLOSE TO AN EQUIVALENT.
This is not going to be accurate doing it this way.

We have looked at this NMinBars study, and we have looked more closely at what you require. Even if you just require the high/low data for a fixed timeframe like 5 minutes to be displayed as a filled rectangle area over variable timeframe bars, there must be a source chart to determine what the exact high/low data is over that fixed timeframe.

Otherwise, it is not known just from the variable timeframe bars. It cannot be accurately determined at all. And the other thing is what is the starting time for each fixed timeframe chart bar. That is not known either without having the actual source chart for the fixed timeframe bars. The NMinBars study simply cannot be accurate with what it does.

I appreciate you taking your time to look at this study.

It is the same exact chart. the minibar study did not use any data or overlay any different charts it was always the same chart.

I can send a screen shot but i do not know how to do that properly in the format you require.

but, it is just the same exact chart but with an overlay of any time frames i wanted for the same chart so the data is already downloaded.

thank you
