Update - December 2020

Written by: admin


More Free Studies Added

The Free Studies Collection has been updated to include a few extra items!

Hopefully, between these newly added studies and the existing ones, there is at least something that is useful for you in your own trading. All of the studies included in the collection are listed on the Free Studies Collection product page.

Most of these new studies offer only minor enhancements compared to the native Sierra Chart studies, but one that offers functionality that is not native is the ‘Volume at Price for Bars’ study. If you want to write alerts based on per bar volume at price data, as shown when using the Number Bars study for example, then this study could prove helpful, volume at price data is exposed via subgraphs making access for alerts and spreadsheets simple.

One final note on the free studies, the ‘Pace of Tape’ study has been completely reworked to utilize the millisecond time-stamping feature introduced in Sierra Chart version 2156. Whilst the rework of this study was going on, 3 new display modes were also added, meaning that Ask, Bid or Delta pace can now be displayed individually.

The latest version of the free studies ( is compatible with Sierra Chart version 2195 and later, if you are already using these studies, then the updated file will have automatically downloaded when the updated studies were originally released, earlier in the month.

New Custom Studies Added


Maybe it has taken a little longer than expected, but some new custom studies have recently been added to the site. Both of the new studies focus on visualizing order flow, or visualizing the tape if you prefer. The Trade Tape and Reconstructed Tape Chart studies are both explained on their respective update pages and they are both available to test free of charge for upto 15 days.

The latest versions of the Reconstructed Tape Chart, Trade Tape and Volume Dots studies are now all compatible with Sierra Chart versions 2195 and later (Trade Tape and Volume Dots are both also available for version 2155-2195 on request). As is the case wioth the reconstructed tape chart, backwards compatibility with versions earlier than 2195 will no longer be included in any future releases.

What’s Coming in 2021?
