the best version I've seen is what I used to have in Tradestation. I liked that the p/l updated in columns next to the bid and ask columns. When using along side chart trader the dynamic super dom seems fine to me.

Pretty certain Sierra can do this, just fyi. There is a "PnL column" as an option. You can customize all the columns and their ordering.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thanks everyone. Developer Response?

Thank you all for your contributions to this thread you have helped clear things up for me, but now, like "forestang" I am curious as to the original intent of the Dynamic Dom.

Was at the time of first inception, less scalping done, more Swing trading whereby the frenetic movement is/was less of an obstacle to entering a trade.

My style of trading is momentum scalping (is that a real term?) I like to be in and out of the market fairly quickly, I want to enter very precisely because I use a 5 tick stop, I do not want to be 2-3 ticks out in my entry because the entry price has disappeared from under my mouse pointer and is now half way up the ladder. I know there are other styles and methods but I have been trading like this, comfortably, for 3 years and I am a great believer in not fixing what is not broken.

Looks like I will have to contribute to the wealth of yet another bunch of faceless people, @ 0.20cents RT. another $880.00 / p.a. less for me and my family.

To provide an alternative DOM that did not infringe on the TT MD Trader Patent so people would have a choice.

Haha, that damn patent seems like it has effected EVERYTHING with regards to placing orders in some way, shape or form.

I used the dynamic DOM for a couple nights on accident without realizing it. It was saved to my workspace, after a few trades I finally realized, 'wait a minute, my orders were moving up and down'. I was so engrossed in the price and level2 at the time. With that said, after only a little while its entirely possible and feasible to get used to the dynamic DOM.

I reckon it shines for anyone crazy enough to do short-term forex trading on a DOM!

You get use to it!

I have been using the Dynamic Dom for a week now and you have to be carefull using it, but, I have got use to it now, as long as the market does not get too excited about all the good news that is coming out, the Dynamic Dom is manageable for scalping. For most other styles of trading it should not be a problem.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread it has been enlightening.

I have the perfect idea for an enhancement to the Dynamic DOM that I'll gladly trade for for a Ninja Trader LifeTime License....

Have the Dynamic DOM automatically "Hold" or lock the price ladder in place when the mouse hovers over the price ladder.

Holding the price ladder makes sure that the price ladder does not change just as I click in my order and also seems like the perfect compromise between the TT Patent for the Static DOM and similar end user functionality.

Preferably keep the DOM updating during this time. Is TT trying to claim the current Hold feature violates their Patent? You have the Hold feature already built-in to Ninja Trader... Just need to activate it automatically with "Zero Clicks" by hovering over the price ladder.

If TT claims the price ladder Hold would violate their Patent if updates happened, I'd still like the feature. I would just want a much smaller area to trigger the hold feature.

How fast can development knock this out.
