Hi @LukeGeniol, welcome back

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

It's an indicator for your chart.

I mean what's the purpose of it/what does it tell you? I seem to see it mentioned around discussions of NT DOM limitation to 5 levels, unless I picked that up incorrectly.

It's an indicator that shows 10 levels of depth on your chart.

Please use a more appropriate thread if you have any follow up questions about jtRealStats, since this thread is supposed to be "CQG vs Zen Fire"

Increasing DOM levels in NinjaTrader


Big Mike View Post
NT DOM only supports 5 levels, but you can programatically access all 10 levels in NT.

Mike

Do you know how to do this?

If not, do you know of a plug-in that I can install to do this?

Thanks.

I don't know what your asking exactly.

The NT DOM supports only 5 levels. You can programatically access 10 levels, depending on instrument and feed. An example is jtRealStats indicator.

This is quite off-topic for this thread.
