Time & Sales parameters, newbie requesting advice.

Hey everyone,

So I'm just wondering for those who do profitably trade via a tape what kind of parameters are you setting i.e. bundling multiple orders into one and what sizes etc or do you just leave it as is order by order, another thing that ties in with this subject is the exchange policies on how the information is displayed i.e. 1x1000 lot or 1000x1 lots etc, I know different exchanges display some things differently, I don't know much about these parameters, I am completely new to tape reading, and would do it on the short term i.e. scalping, with that said what kind of configuration should I be looking into with my time & sales window?

Thank you.
