  • FAQ: Sierra Charts Hand Tool

    The Hand tool can be used for vertical movement and scale changes. To enable this, select Global Settings >> Tool Settings >> General on the menu. Enable Support Vertical Movement/Scaling with Hand Tool.

    When the Hand tool is active and you drag up and down over the main chart, the chart will be moved up and down. This is the very same action that occurs when you drag up and down in the Values Scale area on the right side of the chart and Interactive Scale Move is selected for the scale.

    If there is no vertical scale change, then right-click on the Values Scale on the right side of the chart and make sure Interactive Scale Locked is not selected. If it is, select Interactive Scale Move/Range instead.

    When the option for Vertical Movement with the Hand tool is enabled, it is then possible to press and hold the Control (Ctrl) key on your keyboard and cause the chart scale to be compressed and expanded when you left click with your Pointer and drag up and down over the chart when using the Hand tool.

    If you have any problems moving the chart with the Hand tool, then it is possible the scale has become out of expected alignment and you will need to reset the scale by selecting Chart >> Reset Scale. Or you can double-click in the Values Scale area on the right side of the chart. It is not that something has gone wrong with the scale, rather it just needs to be reset to give you a default point from which to work from so you have an expected result.

    You are also able move the chart up and down, and expand and compress the scale by using the Interactive Scaling feature which involves clicking and dragging on the right side Values Scale of the chart.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
