It is useful to be able to replay historical data files on a second PC whilst running Bookmap live.

Bookmap now checks for a connection when trying to run replay data.

Shouldn't running replay data at the same time as live be permissible, otherwise analysis is restricted to weekends

Looking at the volume bars it would appear that volume on ask is always > than volume on

Just an idea for a new release. I use 3 or 4 'sets' of settings in the contrast window. I was thinking maybe a few buttons that could switch between them could be useful and much quicker than pulling the window up and moving the sliders around.

Regards,

Chris

Could you clarify what the green and red bars represent my assumption was that they are Buy and sell volume but as green is always>red this cannot be so.

The green is higher but the value isn't greater.

It's the length or size of each in relation to each other ...not which is higher.
For example using the green/red bar under the "w" in your pic, the length of the red area is appx 5 times longer than the tiny green area above it ,while take notice that under the "r" in your pic...the length of the green area seems to be a nearly twice as long as the red area under it.

Hi John,

These bars are a composite, the red you see is the amount of selling that occurred, while the green is the buying. The green is always on top of the red. Therefore it doesn't signify that there is more buying.

Many time in the bar composite, you'll see a large red bar, and a small green bar on top. It signifies mostly selling occurred, and a bit of buying as well. Match up the volume dots with the bars and the bar UI should correctly display the aggressor volume. I hope that answers your question.

Bruce

As you will appreciate volume at offer isn't always greater than volume at bid for all markets all the time.

There is a bug.
