39 levels on the DOM

For some reason I am getting 39 levels on the DOM in Gold this week. I love the visibility.

Anyone know what this is all about?

Hey Tap In, good to see you back on FIO.

I just checked via CQG and I can only see 10 levels for GC (unlike CL which, for a while now it's been showing the whole of the order book).

Which platform are you using?

39 is a strange number....

The amount of depth available can be limited by the exchange/feed/platform.

But it's all nonsense. In an age of co-location and nanosecond reaction times, what exactly would seeing depth 39 levels out do for you?

I ask you this as a trader AND a platform provider that can give you depth hundreds of levels out.

It'd just mental masturbation.

Anything 2 or 3 levels out is at risk of being hit. There is significance in that.

Outside that it's just the hedgers limits that could be considered 'real'. If real, the market can still chew through them and move on. Even then, you only know how real a level is when you get close.

It's a tough game.

This is not the answer IMO.

I can confirm this.

P.S. It would be nice to be able to set it...or at least get a settable cumulative...

Thanks. I do not have Sierra charts. It would be nice if RtraderPro had the configurable cumulative Delta.
