What's really interesting about this indicator is that it opens a new window that appears to be an enhanced DOM and Time and Sales combination.

The Drawing of items on the price panel seems to work fine without having to make any changes to the GetY methods. A quick look shows prices are being multiplied by 10,000 and then being converted to integers, consistent with this indicator being specific to the Euro currency. Despite this, the objects seem to be appearing at the proper ordinates on the price panel of the chart.

The only thing I looked at originally was the syntax of the signatures generating the compile errors. Now it might be worthwhile to figure out what this indicator is trying to accomplish. It is accumulating real time data and does not backfill anything when it starts up.

Looks like it may be a cumulative time and sales indicator showing trades at the bid and ask. If this is the case, as it continues to run it will create a volume profile.

Hi Zondor, sorry for the late reply.

I really didn't remember too much about the indicator. It is basically a sort of Time&Sale with a Bid and Ask volume at each price point. There is a little toggle at the bottom where you can choose Time frame. That makes the count reset after the chosen candle expiration. The interesting part to me is to see how many are waiting at the bid, for example, and then to see how many actually prints. If there is a lot more printing than are showing on the DOM, that could suggest good support.

I just don't remember enough right now, and my NT keeps freezing up when I use it so I have to restart it.
It never used to paint anything on the charts, so that must be a new problem in NT7. It also freezes my NT and I have to restart it. Might be too much work to get to the point it needs to be, even though it had a really good use on news. If you were fast enough, you could often use it to see where the spike was ending, or at least taking a breather. I didn't have the cajones at the time to make full use of it. Still not sure that I do, but I was wanting to see if I could use it better now.

Thanks for all your help, Anders

The DrawText stuff has a lot of overhead, and the indicator would probably be much less resource intensive if those were commented out or replaced with objects managed by the Plot method.

Hi Zondor, I have been away on vacation, so haven't had a chance to get back to you.

I just read an old article about scalping, and the guy was talking about looking at the order book. In the article there is a DOM in a picture that has the volume traded at each level. It's not NT, but made me think I can use this indicator the same way. Do you think there is a lot of work to get this to work seamlessly? If so, I have a version that will work on Crude and ES too. Let me know what you think.

that "guy" actually had a webinar here on bmt (if helpful or not is up to you):

and as far as the dom, why not get the best dom available for nt that includes everything you need?
