That is just a guess by JS... it assumes if there are 150 and you place your 1 lot it will be 151... but if somebody hits bid at 150 and it could be 1 trade.... worthless shit information... the key to trading is to be in a trade.

OK, I guess that's true....market orders will always trump what's in the queue.

On another note, sorry to ask too many questions, but in your chartbook the individual charts and the DOM don't have boarders...I've been looking for that setting (the boarders just look messy and take up valuable pixels!) How did you do that?

Last question, I swear! :-P

Thanks
Randy

I don't think I described it right because that didn't do it. See the screenshot here, green arrow shows YOUR chart and red shows MINE. I want the charts/DOM to be like that.

Boy did you ever! Ok, I'll put my nose to the grindstone and I'm sure I'll get it. :-)

Thanks again

Perfect, that was exactly what I was looking for. I was actually in the Chart Settings window hunting and pecking. Duh...so obvious! Thanks!

To see prices and P/L you need real trading account I think.

P/L on the chart screen is a Study you can just add... does not matter if you are in a SIM account or real account.

I have spent the past several weeks re-doing my chartbooks from scratch, and this was the one thing that kept bothering me. I assumed it was a MS OS system setting, and I had no control.

Thanks for this.
