You can also configure hotkeys in SC to cancel orders and flatten everything.

Same for icebergs. I've seen veeeeery large icebergs and the price went through. Sometimes it continues. Sometimes it reverses after a few ticks. Sometimes it bounces from iceberg and never returns. Random outcome, random direction after iceberg hits

One thing I can confirm that generally levels of high liquidity are like a magnet. But those magnets are both on the bid side and on the ask size. Sooner or later price will hit them, but again it seems do be done in semi-random order

I'm crazy but hear me out here, we're in very unusual times right now. There are forces at play, and sometimes the market says yes we will jump on board w this big forces. Other times, the market says he'll to the to no, and overwhelms those bigger forces. Basically,I'm just talking about the plunge protection team, the forces directly opposed to plunge protection team, and then the central banks. Yeah yeah, I know. But still, I've seen volume come in just at the right time, out of no where and at the oddest time for a very targeted hit, and change the entire direction of the day. I'm telling you, I've seen it happen over and over in the last year, but a lot this calendar year.

I think folks in this thread might be speaking more generally, whereas maybe you're think more localized to current conditions. Or maybe I'm just wrong.

My point is, roll w the punches and try to see the game that's being played each day.... whether it's "bigger forces" or "just the market."

Can you set up 4 DOM's side by side like Jigsaw (And Center them with one click) or are stuck with one? See picture. Before I make a trade I see if the other markets are going my way.)
Thanks!!!! I'd like to see how you do that on Bookmap.

Hi Flyer873,

Yes, you can pop out each tabbed Bookmap instrument and minimize the window to display mostly just the columns. Some of the heatmap will still display and take up a bit of screen real estate. See the attached image, where there are 3 DOM's across my 23 inch monitor (2048x1152 pixels). I am displaying the ES, NQ, and CL. Then to quickly expand the DOM and heatmap to get a bigger picture view, just double click on the title bar. Vice versa to minimize it. I hope that helps.

Bruce

I've been reading through this thread, and it's been mentioned many times that the JS ladder is "superior / better" than the BM ladder - I've never seen what's in SC. Can someone elaborate why the JS ladder is better (or not)? Thanks.

You can disable heatmap,dots and volume bars, so the left confusing window be total blank.

My one gripe with SC DOM is the same gripe I have with many - it is hard to cancel an order quickly. In TT you right click the working order and it's gone. In SC you have to click a small 'X' on the order.

With Jigsaw you also right click the order to immediately cancel it. Also left click and drag to move an order, or just left click to bring up a panel to increase/decrease size, change price for that order.
There is additionally a moveable trade panel with flatten and cancel buttons. (And keyboard shortcuts)

Trading, ideally structured, is a vehicle for expanding consciousness, not damaging it. - Brett Steenbarger
