THE PROBLEM: When attempting to add the TAS Indicators to the chart, the Sierra Chart platform becomes slow and sometimes freeze. This happens mostly on intraday bars and lower timeframe charts. Example for this one is on a 1 minute chart.
THE CAUSE: Sierra, by default, loads a ton of bars onto a chart around 500-1500 bars. During adding of TAS Indicators on the chart, it calculates and loads a lot of calls over the course of all those bars to our TAS Files. This cause the slowness since it needs to completely finish the whole bars before it needs to recalculates when a new bar appears especially on lower timeframe like 1 minute or tick charts.
THE CURE: Follow the step-by-step instructions provided below for a workaround on this slowness on Sierra platform by changing/cutting down the number of historical bars loaded on the chart.
STEP 1: Right-click on your chart and click Chart Settings.
STEP 2: On the pop up screen, change the Days to Load to 1. This example is for a 1 minute chart since 1 day is already a lot of data.
NOTE: This varies depending on the timeframe of the chart you're using. If you're using a 60 minute chart you may change Days to Load to 15-30 days, etc.
STEP 3: After changing the parameter, click OK and you're done.
