There was a post/thread a few weeks back that had a really fantastic color combination for Sierra's DOM. I never took the time to make the changes to my DOM, but wish I had - and now can't find the thread.

If any of you remember what I am talking about, please link and help me out I can't remember who posted in the thread so am having trouble finding it...

Take a look at post #16.

Though the latest Sierra version may act a bit different.

Is Sierra's DOM static, semi-static or dynamic? When I tested it was in dynamic mode but never investigated much due to its cumbersomeness.

Since Sierra's DOM is actually a "chart" and not an actual DOM does it have to comply with TT's patent?

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

It's a chart object internally with "blank" Graph Draw Type. The "DOM" becomes "static" if "Scale Range: Constant Range" with "Interactive Scale Move" selected on the scale. Not sure about the TT patent.

Every platform that has a DOM, if it wants to have the option to become static, has to pay TT a fee since they patented it. That's why almost none are static. MC for example has a semi-static option which ends up to have a dynamic performance in the end.

Since Sierra's DOM is not an actual DOM, maybe they have overcome the patent rights, offering this way a very nice tool to their clients.

OK used the colors as a template, made a few small changes. Does anyone know how to get rid of the grid? I can't seem to find the option. Not sure if I would like it better that way or not.

uncheck Chart--> Horizontal Grid or use hot key Alt+Shift+H

Hello everyone,

This is probably a silly question but I can't figure out how to change the highlight color of the cursor when selecting a price on the bid / ask columns.

Can someone help me with this please ?

Thanks.

@Omaha

As arnie says, its hard to get a good static DOM. I think I am going to try sierra again here soon, but in the hopes of not wasting time, can you expound on your post I quoted? When putting it in "Scale Range: Constant Range" with "Interactive Scale Move", does the market move around a static ladder that you can still scroll and re-centers when it moves out of the prices on the ladder?



Also, what effect does the fact the DOM is not actually a DOM have on trading? This is interesting to read.
