Now, if you want to make a Trade DOM fully driven from another source like IQ Feed, in our very latest prerelease you will want to enable Global Settings >> General Settings >> Use Non-Chart Data from Remote Instances. This is still new it has not undergone a whole lot of testing.

Another note: The last trade price you see on a Trade DOM ,it is always driven by the actual latest real-time price either from the primary data feed or from the remote instance. Depending upon how Use Non-Chart Data from Remote Instances is set. So there is no way to adjust the Session Times to limit it. This is by design to always ensure you see the very latest real-time price.

What version are you running? I'm running 912 and last price updates regardless of chart's session showing.

914. I will play some more, also with the pre-release described by SC support. It seems possible to do what I want.

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.

Thank you. I am on 914 and I set the 'use non-chart data' option.

When I change the session template to only have RTH, and no evening, then the profile is correct but the Last is wrong:

In addition, with "use non-chart data for remote" enabled, there is no bid/ask depth on the DOM. When I uncheck this option, bid/ask depth returns, see:

But the "last" is still wrong, it shows the Closing price of RTH session and not the current last.

I will continue to try and solve it if I can figure out what I am doing wrong.

The depth problem may be my side. I haven't powered a DOM off IQFeed before, so I just went to my main IQFeed SC instance and opened a new DOM, and it shows only the best bid/ask and no depth.

I checked my authorizations:

So I need to discuss with IQFeed, apparently I don't have the right depth setup for this exchange or something.

Yes, default IQFeed is level 1 only -- level 2 is about $25 per month extra IIRC. Edit, just realized maybe you actually have the authorization but it's just not showing up.

I dunno, my eyes glaze over when dealing with all the exchange authorizations these days. I just cheat and email Robert at IQFeed

@josh, can you confirm if you open a DTN based DOM, do you get only the L1 data for the ES? I was thinking that CME didn't have separate L1 and L2, that was only NASDAQ (which I am subscribed to).

Quoting 
But the "last" is still wrong, it shows the Closing price of RTH session and not the current last.

You should see the latest price. On the Trade DOM go to Window >> Current Quote Window. The last trade price you see on the Trade DOM should match the Last trade price in the Current Quote Window.

There really should not be a problem with this. Make certain you are connected to IQ Feed.
