Hi Bookmap,

I often keep 1 bookmap market on top of some charts and it always goes to the back if I click elsewhere. An "always on top" option like what is in X_Trader would be really helpful. Can you add this to your list?

This is a question specifically to users... after 6 months has anyone worked with the API to develop execution strategies based on the data columns?There is much potential and I'm curious as to why,in this thread, the API isn't receiving more attention or a few more examples coded by users.

Do I really have to take it upon myself to learn Java and if so..how much Java do I need to learn in order work with Bookmap's API?

dtn feed questions

Just starting to look at bookmap, using DTN feed is it possible to have the prior data or is bookmap live only, And also can a person use combined tickers, IE create a basket of say 5 stocks that are merged. Thanks

Hey Bruce thank you for the reply.

Hopefully that feature can be added eventually .

I like your suggestion about putting in the orders then manually moving the levels. It works great when it is slow. The issue I have is that when it gets moving fast I can't click fast enough multiple times before the market has moved. So the result is that I don't get entries that are as good as with a single click.

The other workaround I tried was to place a bracket order with the size being 3. That helps me get the perfect entry plus puts the stop in place for all 3 contracts. I then left the stops in place hoping that I could then separate the target portions of the bracket, moving my targets to the 3 levels I wanted. But when trying to move the target it moves all 3 contracts.

I assume there is no way to separate those targets? I tried various combinations of holding ctrl, alt, shift, etc while dragging them but no luck. Otherwise that would be a perfect workaround until a strategy bracketing feature gets added.

Thanks again for helping!

.

Hi Iceman,

There is another type of workaround for this scenario. For example, you can enter one market buy order quickly for 3 contracts.
  1. First do not use brackets -- deselect it.
  2. Next, change the contract size to 1.
  3. Now select OCO.
  4. Right-click once above the market price to set you sell target, and then hold down shift and right-click once below current price to set your sell stop.
  5. Repeat this 2 more times and you should be able to set 3 separate OCO that will scale out of your original 3 lot order. It also allows you to move individual stops and targets.

I have used this in the past and just tested it again. It works for me. Please test it and see if that works for you.

regards,

Bruce

Hi timmyb,

Once you open Bookmap, it begins collecting data. At this time, you cannot add historical data to Bookmap. However, we have many users that simply start Bookmap Sunday evening and leave it open for the entire week. This way, you'd be able to collect the entire week's worth of data. You can also open Bookmap and set a refresh date t begin collecting and stopping the data collection. This is a great feature is you want a data set of the cash session of a specific product.

Regarding combined pairs trading, there are already several combined pairs available from a variety of brokers or data providers. Therefore you can view or trade for example the 30yr - 10yr notes, etc. Check with your broker. They most likely will provide the oil crack spread, soybean crush, and other popular spread trading symbols. However, there is not the possibility to combine 5 diverse stocks within one symbol.

regards,

Bruce

i have using bookmap since after 1weeks release . I know this is seomthing that i need for reading the DOM in daily basis.

Here my suggestion for improvement.

i love to refer the nanex chart which contain the Total Bid and total ask in the book.

This information can provide the underlying Supply n demand in the market.

I hope Bookmap can provide this information which is Total Bid dan Total Ask

Hi AnoTrader,

Thanks for the suggestion, I will add it to the list. On our product roadmap, we actually have something similar and potentially more insightful than the total bid feature you are requesting. This is something we will tackle a bit later this year.

You may also consider checking out an aggregated view of the historical liquidity under Studies Configuration>>Heatmap. Check the boxes for Extended and Aggregated book. Please see attached image. This heatmap study displays the overall historical aggregation of liquidity of one price levels added to the next. This setting can also be accessed in the DOM (see arrows in the attached image). Right-click in the COB column, choose Format, and check the Aggregate box. Perhaps this is something you find helpful.

regards,

Bruce

Thanks Bruce thats actually very helpful indeed.

I need more practice to get quicker at it if I am going to try that in a fast market, but I think that might be a decent option until a bracketing strategy becomes available.

Hopefully that feature will make its way into a future version, but until then I will try this as a workaroud.

Thanks again for helping!

OneClick Trading and Recenter


Dear BookMap Team,

i am using OneClick Trading to enter / exit the market. Sometimes when waiting to click a certain level BM recenters and this is can be painful while being concentrated to catch the right entry.

So i came to the idea whether it would be possible to automatically disable the recentering while the mouse is in there area where you place orders (right side of the chart). Ideally it would be an option in the recenter options to disable recentering while the mouse is in that area.

Could you please consider this feature request.

Thanks a lot
Michael
