how to store/save data from Depth of Market Indicator

i can't find a data provider who provides (milli)second by (milli)second historical depth of market book, so i figure i could write a code that and build my own.

below is the Market Depth of Chart by Multicharts

[RecoverDrawings = false];

if not LastBarOnChart_s then #return;

Inputs: UpdateSpeed_seconds(0.1);



if not dom_isconnected then

value11 = 0;
value12 = 0;
for value1 = 0 to dom_askscount - 1 begin
value12 = dom_asksize(value1);
if value12 > value11 then value11 = value12;

for value1 = 0 to dom_bidscount - 1 begin
value12 = dom_bidsize(value1);
if value12 > value11 then value11 = value12;

if 0 >= value11 then

for value1 = 0 to dom_askscount - 1 begin
dom_askprice(value1), dom_asksize(value1), value1, value11,
gradientcolor( value1, 0, 10, RGB(255,0,0), RGB(80,0,0) ),
dom_askscount - 1 = value1

for value1 = 0 to dom_bidscount - 1 begin
dom_bidprice(value1), dom_bidsize(value1), value1, value11,
gradientcolor( value1, 0, 10, RGB(0,0,255), RGB(0,0,80) ),
dom_bidscount - 1 = value1

plot1("OK", "Status", white);



plot1("Level2 data is not avaliable", "Status", red);

is there a way, i can store,save that data to be used at another time for time backtesting?

yes, but you would need your own database or create huge text files storing this data.
