I don't work for them but have been a longtime user, just right click in the price column and select autocenter: none. You can also move price up and down by holding down control and dragging price column.

I know this option working with BM also as a long term user - thanks. but this is not what I suggest. I am asking to have the chart recentering except when I'm about entering a trade . Always toggling the option is not very comfortable

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

thank you so much for always keep updating the version for the user. great job bookmap team!!

here is my 2nd and last suggestion.

I am also using the sierrachart platfrom to see the orderflow. I have some suggestion based on my experience on sierrachart. Bookmap has the own class , no doubt.

I have using this type of Chart which can "filter" the size in the dom . So it can give us and focusing on the specific size.

The chart below show the filtering size by "range" that can be set and has the specific color.

PINK: more than 400 Lot
RED: more than 300 Lot
BLUE: more than 150 Lot
Low: more than 100 Lot

For example: if the chart show the PINK color, we know that the size is between 300 to 400 Lot. We can zoom in to see the actual Lot.

I believe, this is very important INFORMATION for trader because the SIZE represent the smart money in the market. Although sometime they are using the iceberg order. at least we can see the "bigger picture" by filtering the lot and see the idea from it.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



This filtering can give some idea on the auction behavior. Sometime i can see the "algo" behavior like shown below by filtering the SIZE in the market.

I can say this type of reading by filtering the Lot can give us some idea on the activity market.

i hope bookmap can give this feature.

Regards
