Hi everyone,

I'm new to sierra chart and was wondering about the best ways (through programming) to manage a portfolio. I'm planning on coding several strategies that will all "feed" off of the same account. I want to code a way to manage the funds allocated to these strategies all from a single place.

I was thinking that all the same strategies would be their own DLL files (as they would normally be). Then I was planning on having them read/write to a .txt file where I would be able to allocate funds to all the strategies, and see all of the P/L and some other metrics. Does this sound like the right way to go about this?

I come from ninjatrader seeking more customizability and speed, so I'm not sure how to go about doing this more advanced stuff.
Any suggestions on how to make this robust would be a huge help, as it would be something I use for a long time on a daily basis.

Thanks!

They do not need to be separate files:

This is something you need to make a determination on. But certainly you can read/write from/to files from ACSIL:

Here is the relevant documentation:
