Sorry, yes. The middle of the range (Profile High + Profile Low)/2.
It clearly isn't a feature lots of people are clamouring for if you have to ask me what I mean

Thank you for the clarification. I can't judge about the importance of this feature for other traders, but definitely it's not complicated to implement. I added it to the list of planned features.

Bookmap API and Indicator Naming Conventions


Bookmap View Post
Hi Paps,

Bookmap API enables you to draw both on the heat map chart and on the new indicator panel at the bottom.

If you have an indicator in Ninjatrader, you could rewrite it to Bookmap API in Java.
You can find the API and sample codes at Github

Once completed, you can load your indicator to Bookmap via the Add / Import button from the API window.

Here is an example of an average position price that is drawn on the heatmap chart (the blue line)

Bookmap team

Can you please answer this questions:

What is the naming convention for importing / adding Bookmap indicators?

eg.
@Layer1StrategyName("Markers demo")
public class Layer1ApiMarkersDemo implements == Layer1ApiMarkersDemo.jar ??

How can an installed indicator be removed / deinstalled?

Are there more Velox API's then described / listed in the given samples? If yes, where are they described?

Thanks

Walt

Has Anyone created Bookmap API Stage 5 Studies


I was wondering if anyone has created any API studies for Bookmap using Stage 5 Trading yet that they want to share..

I was also wondering if someone can create a RSI study to plot on lower section of bookmap (like where the cumulative delta is) and also a mid-line for intraday trading from the 9:30am open to 4:15pm close..

I am not a coder so any help would be much appreciated. Also I use the Stage 5 Trading Bookmap.

Thank you.

Hi watrader,

Actually, this Layer1... convention was not supposed to be forced on anyone. It's only good in Bookmap project where it allows to distinguish some classes. I would recommend naming strategy simply with what it does, e.g
@Layer1StrategyName("Markers demo")
public class MarkersDemo

Package is also not supposed to be copied, it can be in any package. if it's developed by watrader it would be reasonable to place it in e.g. com.watrader.bookmapstrategies

Jar file name should probably be the same as strategy name if it's the only strategy in jar or something reasonable if there is more than one in it. (for single one e.g. MarkersDemo.jar or for multiple e.g. WatraderStrategies.jar)

We will likely want to rename examples later, so copying that convention will be a bad idea.

Hi jr2146,

Yes, Stage 5 developed an indicator that is planned to be launched this week. I suggest you follow them on that.

Good suggestion regarding the RSI, shouldn’t be complicated to develop it via Bookmap API.

Regarding the mid-lines, please note that daily 'open' and 'close' prices are currently not supported via the API.

Added both items to our list.

hi there @Bookmap am wondering if you maybe able to also show what all is currently exposed via APIs from the actual Bookmap platform.

Are things such as Order Book/Volume/Trades Counter/Quotes Counter/Quotes Delta and also perhaps Hidden Limit Orders/Icebergs...etc which are available on the platform available to users via API calls for their own development.

cheers n thnx

Access to Custom Notes Column

Hi @Bookmap,

I am just wondering whether it is possible to write to and clear the costum notes column. Would love to inject some notes derived from my chart indicators automatically like yHigh,yLow and so on. So I would not need to import it via the user interface.

Is there an example available ?

Thanks a lot

Hi Paps,

Via existing API developers can get the market data and to compute all the information we provide via Bookmap, including: Order Book/Volume/Trades Counter/Quotes Counter/Quotes Delta etc.

In order to make it easier for developers to use current Bookmap functionalities, we will provide some of it via sample codes and some will be provided via a toolkit

thanks guys.

Utilizing a existing market data feed & API...leads to a good amount of work. Was trying to leverage of a well reconstructed LOB.

hoping to see Bookmap all functionalities accessible via API and timestamping in the near future.

cheers

Hi Michael,

Currently it is not possible to write automatically to the custom notes column from an outside source. However, your request is in our product roadmap and will be implemented in the next version of Bookmap. Thank you for your insight and feedback!

regards,

Bruce
