Hy 1LotTrader!

I have just found your order flow tool and I must tell you its awsome!! I will follow this thread and you blog very closely.
studying this stuff I had an Idea.
It would be great to see the trades separately by was traded at bid or ask.
Do you think it is possible to create another three column on the left side to show trades on bid and keep the right three to show trades ad ask?

Thanks
Andre

Adam, thank you for your interest, I’m always happy to get some new readers and meet some fellow traders – regards the addition I will say this - do not muddle your mind with such things. Trust me. You want to learn how to trade then learn how to trade, forget about adding this or separating that or this bell or that whistle. All you ever need to read a book is this, right in front of you. Nothing more.

My initial intention of sharing this book was to meet other traders that want to learn how to trade. Not fiddle with software. I can write software yes but see what I have already written, it is perfectly adequate, unless there is some serious motivation for adding something I will not waste your or my time with it.

When you read a book the best time to get in the market is available to you for maybe 15 seconds. Everything extra that you add to your process is in fact baggage that makes you slower and slower and slower. This is the opposite of what you want to achieve. You want to get lighter to the point that you can make good split second decisions on a consistent basis.

Don’t try to make it more complicated than it needs to be.

Never believe anything anyone says to you regarding trading. Test out your ideas, and THEN determine what you need for yourself, based on your own thinking, not someone else's thinking. Trading is for independent thinkers who are willing to risk money on their ideas, not for those who blindly accept what others say.

That being said, I completely agree with 1Lot on this one -- keep it simple But don't take my word for it or anyone else's.

Two more small updates. Attached is latest source.

1. Found an issue with YM price constant ladder, ticksize of 1 was causing Zero price.
2. Updated IB price feed to correctly account for depth of book levels instead of using constants.

Two Tips:

a) When you first load a chart right click and choose the reload historical data option. This will ensure the chart is fully loaded with all data for the day in the profile etc.
b) When setting the DOM for a particular market be sure in the indicator options area to go down to Price Constant and set the Decimal to the Decimal setting of that market example: ES is 2 decimals so set Decimal2, FDAX is 1 decimal so set Decimal1, YM is no Decimal so set to Normal.

See below these images, these are the common markets I have been testing today and the feed is AMP with IB option set to false. So far I think they are all looking good on latest version.

Leonex please give more details. I would love to be all seeing and all powerful but sadly I am just a man..

What is wrong with the price?

Did you check what I wrote about the Price constant configuration? You must set it to match each market.. If you have not done so then reread my earlier post regarding that or my how-to page in the tips section number 9.

Can you do me a favour and screen shot it and post so that I can see what it looks like?

Another thing you must be sure to do is the first time that you load it on a chart you must choose the "refresh historical data option" from the chart options. Right Click and it's there. Otherwise in some cases it will show only blank space.

Interesting, what is your TickSize on Bund in default instruments. I see on your chart you have a comma instead of a decimal point, something is screwy in instrument manager. Or something I am not aware of with the instrument format. This may explain why you previously had a crash.

Look at my screen prints and look at Bund. Look at my far right hand price column on chart. Bund is 140.03/140.04 etc. not 140,03/140,04
