Agree with Japhro @SierraChart about the background on the last size / cumulative size and it annoys me that the DOM doesn't have this feature.

I replied to a post on your support board today and I agree with what has been requested on this page by Japhro
as it the same request I have posted on the support board although not made public yet.
If you can implement the background colour for the last size and cumulative size then then I can't see why your DOM would have any fault. This feature IS needed and it has been 3-4 months since you said you would look into this. As mentioned it should be an easy fix. It would really help with seeing when the bid gets hit and the offer gets lifted for those who are a fan of the most basic DOM setups

Color settings to control the background color of the Last Size or Cumulative Last Size on the market data columns on the trading ladder, based upon whether the trade was at the bid or ask, will be in the next release of Sierra Chart.

As a broker and a CTA I find sierra charts to be the best value for your $$ in many aspects.

We like to offer sierra with either transact, CQG data or if you planing on using their API, with their DTC server.

I will be happy to answer any questions or share feedback via PM or simply visit our website ( www.cannontrading.com )

PM with any questions about Cannon Trading (800) 454-9572 (310) 859-9572. Trading commodity futures, forex and options involves substantial risk of loss. The recommendations contained in this post are of opinion only and do not guarantee any profits. These are risky markets and only risk capital should be used. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
