Thanks so much for the feedback chopox!!! I was wondering if additional columns can be added with the ability to filter the "snapshot" by size. Do you know if that is possible?

Jigsaw dom columns are pretty customizable but not sure if there is documentation available outside of the program. There are quite a few Jigsaw videos available on YouTube, some of them explaining how to use certain program features, so that would be worth checking out. DOM colors can be changed, and each available column can be turned off or on as desired. Columns can be moved around to the order you prefer. Depth of bid and offer can be set to your preference. Contract size execution on T&S can be filtered. Available options include: bid and ask size (but not how many distinct players are bidding or offering), bid/offer 'snapshot' (bids and offers added or pulled), comments, trade column with queue position and open P&L, volume profile as well as bid and offer histograms, executions at bid and at offer, and probably more that I'm forgetting. Changing things is very easy and intuitive; if you have specific questions about availability of certain options just ask or shoot an email to Jigsaw support.

I'm not entirely sure I understand your question: you'd like to have more than one snapshot for bids and for offers with different size filters for numbers of contracts pulled or stacked? If that is the case the answer is no, you can't have more than one snapshot for bids and one for offers, you can't filter by applying a size cutoff or restriction. You can filter the snapshots for depth. I generally only look at depth of about 3 levels around inside bid/offer. At least on ES, the pulling and stacking is flickering by so fast its hard to read anyway -- for my purposes I just like to look for short term persistence in patterns of pulling and stacking.

Jigsaw does have some 'power meters' built in that you can watch based on trade executions, depth of market, and snapshot but filtering capacity is limited to depth. T&S can be filtered by trade size however, and there are power meters you can set up to reflect filtered short and longer term size-filtered executions which can be very helpful.

Is there documentation showing how to customize the dom columns? That is, documentation that can be reviewed prior to purchasing?

Hello,

I am not sure if you went through the online help but just in case you did not (I do not know if it is updated):

Those instructions are for the old plugin version of Jigsaw that pulled data from the charts for a couple of different platforms.
The new daytradr version that came out a few years back has better data connection and now charts available. Having said that though, the functions of the DOM haven't really changed in that time so the instructions posted by Hana should be fine if you just want to look at a Manual.

does anyone have proof jigsaw can be profitable? does anyone who has proof want to do a head to head competition?

Not a fan of Jigsaw because my platform already has decent DOM and it's free

But I'm wondering do you really expect that execution tool is profitable on it's own? Isn't it all about the trader using that tool?

This is true - but we don't just provide a DOM but a way to use it, analytics and a community - so to me it's a fair question in terms of "does that combo, give me what I need?"

Which is something other members would need to chime in on.

I'm not either in Peter's or Vinny's pack but I think that some public allegations need to be addressed to clarify the whole situation

I think FIO trading community will benefit from knowing:

- Can we trust people with no verified track record?
- Where are long-term profitable traders using Jigsaw tools? Apparently not in their own leaderbord. So where we can find them to bust all of the allegations that nobody is profitable trading with Jigsaw?
- Should we trust, that people with no verified track record can create software useful to others?
- Should we take education and accept mentoring sessions from people with no verified track record?

Again, I'm not here to attack or promote anything or anybody. I just think that FIO community deserves this issues to be resolved in a transparent way

I saw email notifications with posts it this thread that were deleted by admins and I agree with the deletion. But if you delete this I'll begin to wonder about your true intentions. Taking a screenshot right now and waiting how this story goes
