Sierra Chart Book sharing: Market Depth Historical Graph

Sierra Chart introduced Market Depth Historical Graph at the end of 2016 after receiving requests from users. It is a tool which is similar to BookMap. The Market Depth Historical Graph study displays at each chart column the highest market depth quantity at each price level, which occurred during the timeframe of the chart bar, as a color-coded rectangle.

Here is the chartbook I use for my trading. ¬†In order to use Market Depth Historical Graph, ¬†“Record Market Depth Data” has to be activated as follow:

  • Select Global Settings >> Symbol Settings on the menu.
  • Locate the symbol or symbol pattern for the Symbol in the list of symbols, that you want to use the Market Depth Historical Graph study with.
  • Select the Intraday tab.
  • Enable the Record Market Depth Data option.
  • Press OK.
  • Reconnect to the data feed with File >> Disconnect and File >> Connect to Data Feed after altering the Symbol Settings.

Please feel free to download, customize and share.

Curated Tweets – Best tweets collections

I have collected some tweets over time, which I think it is helpful for traders to read again from time to time. You can treat as “trading wisdom” or just general reminder of rules to run this business.

You find the link at the side bar “Best Tweet Collection“, or access to this page

Sierra Chart Sharing: Number Bar (Footprint chart)


Number Bar/Footprint chart is one of the most important tool in my day trading toolbox.  Sierra Chart provides users built-in studies for it.  Sierra Chart is a very well-designed, and stable charting platform, and it is also very flexible for users to customise.

I am sharing a chart book with Number Bar setup and some of my own customisation. Feel free to download and copy to your trading chart. I hope this will save you some time in case you are new to Sierra Chart or Number Bars.

Download the chart book and save it into Sierra Chart Data Files Folder, and Go to Sierra Chart and select File >> Open Chartbook . Feel free to customise it or share it to other Sierra Chart user if you like.
