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

Thanks. I'm still trading and lurking around FIO. Went off to do some trading exploration out of the public eye.

with Rithmic-data, you can see the entire order-book not just 39 levels

That is awesome but 40 levels is quite enough for me!

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 think I mis-counted. It's probably 40 levels.

I am generally with you on your comments about the DOM. The only thing I use it for is looking for large anomalies, and mostly on the lower volume instruments like CL.

Price seems to want to move to fill these anomalies.
