Hi Jigsaw,

I am currently a Sierra user but loathe them both as a company and as a product. I want to switch to Jigsaw now that I read you are releasing complete charting shortly. One major thing that I use in every trade is my theoretical average. It is a simple calculation but one I had to write custom for Sierra. Bookmap comes with this feature built-in, so some platforms can do it out of the box.

Can the DOM or the charts have an ability to plot the traders theoretical average over the life of their "trade" while scaling in and out multiple times?

With kind regards,
MK

While you wait for a reply from Jigsaw, yes, the DOM can track the trade profit taking in to account partial profits from scale outs to adjust the "theoretical average" during a trade. You check both the highlighted boxes in the DOM options for the Trade Column.

Thanks for the info Matthew. A lot of platforms say they do this (cough such as Sierra) but they do not actually do it properly. The problem at sierra is something like they match your entries to an exit in some sort of LIFO or FIFO queue rather than a simple all entries and exits need to be counted in one flat to flat cycle. It is crucial information for me as someone that is scaling in / out.

More questions about Jigsaw. Back in DEC 2021 I was in communication with "Bruno" about some feature queries.

- When I am doing research across timeframes it is easy for me to get lost. To help, it is super useful to have the crosshair in sync and replicated across all charts. Can Jigsaw do this?

- I am mostly trading in Asia on the Osaka Nikkei and on HKex with the Hang Seng or H-shares. Bruno had told me that you can only do market replay via your special "market replay providers", of which he only mentioned NT8 or Tradeovate. I am using CQG and to the best of my knowledge the data providers me mentioned do not offer my markets. I find it hard to believe that you cannot do a market replay on these markets as I thought I read they were supported by Jigsaw. Please give me some good news and tell me that it is possible to do a market replay on my Asian products.

With kind regards,
MK

I found you on support.

I agree with you - you got bullshit answers and I am going to ensue that stops.

It's a growing pain - but one where a manager is in place to manage the growing. The replies you got were ludicrous.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. My apologies. You can have a a free lifetime license if you are on the look out again. This time I'll support you myself.

I sent you an email and a DM 10 days ago. Still no response.
