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.

Hi John,

I've attached an image that I hope clarifies this UI issue. Think of the bar as a total volume composite just like the pie dots display. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can further assist.

regards,

Bruce

Rithmic v IQ data on Bookmap


I have switched from IQ to Rithmic today and have seen only a couple of instances of icebergs, typically I would have expected to have seen many more with IQ. Are there any known issues with Rithmic data

Hi John,

There could be discrepancies with the Iceberg Detector between various data providers. It depends how the orders hit the book. You could even see discrepancies between the same data provider and differing platforms due to how the API for that provider provides the data for Bookmap to process. Remember, there is no magic here as this number simply represents the quantity of traded volume that is greater than the liquidity that was reported in the limit order book at that exact price and exact moment in time. There are a number of factors that can effect this, including the API and how it prioritizes the data stream during "fast market" or sudden flurries of activity, latency to the API provider and or from the API provider, and many more. Our Iceberg Detector algo does not change -- it makes the same calculation regardless of data feed, platform, or version.

regards,

Bruce

Hi John,

Bookmap already supports OEC data for Stage5Trading and Gain Capital. Here's the complete list of data providers we currently supports:
  • Stage 5
  • Gain Capital
  • Ninja 7 & 8
  • CQG
  • Rithmic
  • IQ Feed
  • Transact Futures
  • TT API
  • Interactive Brokers TWS
  • Tradovate
  • AMP

You can add or edit a data provider at https://bookmap.com/portal/, then click on the "Manage Account and Profile, and edit your Account Connectivity / Data Provider input field.

regards,

Bruce

@Bookmap I have an idea that would help he a lot and want to add it to the list. I use 4 monitors, charts on each and a bookmap window on each. If I click the chart, bookmap moves to the back and I have to hover over the icon in toolbar and select correct instrument amongst 6, can you implement a feature where it would be something like "always on top" or "always in front"? When I used X_Trader in the past they had this and it helped in this scenario.

Thanks

Hi Bathrobe,

Thanks for the suggestion, I've documented it and added it to our list.

Hi John,

You use CQG data, however their data feed does not contain the indication of the trade's aggressor, therefore Bookmap estimates it based on current price, according to the most recent update. There may be a very short-time change in price when those trades occur. Try to zoom-in further to see if it's true. If not, then please send us this data file for investigation at support@veloxpro.com.
