Matthew28,

I've not had a chance to catch that webinar - was the development of a sim function mentioned at all? Not that it's a problem if one isn't being developed for Daytradr I just wondered was all.

Cheers.

Me adding my question on to yours got mine answered and yours missed.
Pete had mentioned sim functionality for daytradr over on the Jigsaw forum during the alpha/beta testing phase but whether that is a high priority, low priority or has dropped off the 'to do list' at the current time I have no idea. I can't remember him mentioning it in the video off the top of my head. It is worth watching anyway though.
I'm sure Pete will see he missed your question and answer it next time he is round.

hi Matthew28,

No problem at all - Peter's answer to your question was useful to me too so it's all good!

Hi Pete,
Adding on to Trambo's question above.
After watching your recent daytradr webinar I had a look at your Institutional course outline. How are all the replay drills done when the platform doesn't have replay? I have seen a few replies of yours in the past recommending that people screen record their DOMs rather than use the Ninja replay for example because of the 'chunkiness' of the orderflow when replayed. is that improved in Ninja8 or Tradovate replay?
Basically, how does the replay part of the course work?
Thanks.

Regardless of weather or not replay works well, I highly suggest people just screen record their sessions. It's very easy to do with OBS, and you can just upload the videos to YouTube for storage. I've been doing this now with my journal since about May for bonds. So now there's a record that is available to anyone. It can be viewed any time you want, and you can easily fast forward or replay parts. Even if you don't want to go through the work of uploading to YouTube, you'd be surprised how much video you can fit on modern hard drives.

I couldnít agree more. This has been some of the best advice Iíve ever had actually. I use B.B. flashback and it works well, Iíve found the files arenít too large and have a hard drive just for videos. Very useful for analysis.

Agreed 100%. Also, Iíve uploaded videos to my iPad for later viewing. I had about an hour bus ride to work which I would use to watch these recordings. I have hundreds of hours of ZN/ZB/ZF/UB screen recordings, cut to approximately the first 3 hours of the treasuries open

Peter,

Could you briefly explain the idea behind the reconstructed tape? I mean what makes it possible technically to aggregate trades?
On your website I can see only a standalone Daytradr, what about a plug-in to NT? Does it come separately?
Also in case of Elite membership at futures.io where am I supposed to mention it to get a discount?

Thanks!

Plain and simple: https://www.cmegroup.com/confluence/display/EPICSANDBOX/CME+MDP+3.0+Market+Data

The CME (and other exchanges as well) are using FIX (MDP x is a subset of that standard).
The standard reports the finest granularity of each order, trade, etc.
So all that order flow tools basically do is reading that data and change the form of summaries,
e.g. by plotting visual signals on charts when the CME data report an aggressor as defined below.

Some examples:
  1. Trade with Customer Orders
  2. Trade with Customer and Implied Orders
  3. One Aggressor Trading at Multiple Prices Against Customer and Implied Orders
  4. Ratio Spread Trade with Distributed Fills
  5. Market Open / New Price Indication

My original question referred to the replay that allows trades to be placed so one can actually trade past sessions.
I agree about recording. I like Pricesquawk so I record, on BBFlashback Express, and have the sounds recorded too.
