One thing I really like about SC is the ability to save "analysis" and turn on and off instantly, or switch on the same chart. reminds me some of Tradestation.

CL might test the 9250 level, Fridays POC Plus a good support level on the daily

Good call.

Not too long ago they added the ability to programmatically add custom buttons and menu items. You wait for a mouse event and when you get it, you can execute whatever code you like. I implemented this after seeing another futures.io (formerly BMT)er do this with buttons, but with menus (because I hate toolbars). So I can show/hide groups of studies, as I'm doing in this case. Pretty cool stuff SC lets you do huh? You can right-click the region data line at the top of a chart and show/hide a single study, but when you have groups of them, hiding them all and showing them all takes too much time, hence I decided to use their nice feature and hook into the menu.

Expecting a neutral day, the low end has most likely been established at 1x IB. But not sure about another trade location. Still riding below ETH Vwap, nearly dead center of range, inside bracketed value.

Even without taking another trade, that was beautiful to watch.

@josh can you start a thread on this? I'd like to learn more about the menu hooks.

What was that? I left the house early and this is what I came back to. Cannot find anything but Alcoa earnings maybe? That looks like a CL impulse move, not ES.

EDIT 8:30pm - that move is still going...

An update on Sierra - even running multiple workspaces loaded with charts, it has not broken above 100k(k).

I have yet to see a lag, it fires up instantly, data load is like lightning, it does so many cool little extras that I never even considered. Not to understate that it made me work for it, but I am glad I did.

@josh, it appears we are both smitten.

Thanks for the push and the help.

I would not be surprised to see ES blow the top off the highs. I have no idea why, and since I don't trade it I don't really care either way, but that type of move in ES is not typical. I can almost picture the new traders that blew up today trying to short that.
