Difference between bid and below bid in T&S

I am just studying the tape and OB, therefore I have some questions.

My general question is to understand the difference between a Bid Trade and Below Bid (and vice versa for Ask) and concerning the screenshot what could be the reason that only Position 11:15:56:08 - 12 are marked as "Below"

Many thanks.

@Nick Berlin, this is a hard one to answer, as there can be many factors the trade occurs outside the best bid/ask. Here is a screen shot of my T&S at about the same time frame. The bid actually updated in the middle of the trades, thus there were only 2 trades that occurred outside the BBO. When you see the true millisecond precision timestamp, you are able to determine that 9 trades occurred in the exact same millisecond 06:15:56.525 (we timestamp in eastern time). Halfway through the execution of those trades, the bid updated and the last 5 trades at that instant hit the bid. It appears you missed that bid update for some reason. We do send millisecond timestamps in our feed, but it looks like Sierra Chart is replacing it with their own counter.

Judging by his symbol name, he isn't using IQFeed.

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)

@IGFeed James many thanks for your screenshot and explanation.

Very helpful and as I understand the main reason is the datafeed.

.......................... I understand the main reason is the datafeed.

I have documented better, and the problem is the datafeed.
Here is a good explanation NinjaTrader Support Forum - View Single Post - Аbove the ask or below the bid

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
