Hi Amoeba,

You can add cross instruments only if your broker or data provider offers them, such as the crack spread, crush spread, etc.

Hi Bookmap,

I might have used the wrong terminology in my question, I was looking at the ability to display the book for a symbol but for orders to be placed on its mini/micro. I can see this ability exists for GC, CL & 6E, but was hoping it might be possible to add other large/mini products?

Hi Amoeba,

As you noted this functionality exists in Bookmap, but it varies depending on the broker. So what you see under File>>List cross instruments trading pairs is what is available from that broker.

Hi Bruce,

Could you please help compare the differences between dxFeed and Rithmic for trading futures with a Global subscription? How is the latency, full market depth, and cost if I were to trade GC and CL?

Is dxFeed recommended over Rithmic if I just need Bookmap for charting purposes?

Thanks,
Oldporkchops

Hi,

Just a note, this is not our business. Bookmap is a software platform, not data nor broker services. I recommend you try Rithmic free for 2 weeks and also subscribe to dxfeed for one month for CME data only, for $29. See what one works best for you.

That said, both data feeds display full market depth -- this is a significant advantage over other data feeds. There are no issues with latency. I know Rithmic offers CME Market-by-Order data as well. This the future of transparent data for retail traders. I am not sure dxfeed offers that, you'll have to ask them.

regards,

Bruce

It seems that dxFeed is oriented around equities, and rithmic is for Futures.
I did not see dxFeed specify CME, but suggest to use their site in case I am wrong.

Hi Matt,

dxfeed now offers data for futures as well/ You can get each feed separately for the CME, CBOT, COMEX, and NYMEX for $29 each per month, or get them bundled for $79 per month.

I used this for reference https://bookmap.dxfeed.com/ so I did not see the CME Group pricing.

Thanks for the update.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for your response.

I understand that data isn't your core business, but we all need data to use your services. It's a chicken and egg issue.

Since Rithmic offers CME Market-by-Order, I've signed up for a 14 day Rithmic trial but was unable to add it to my Free Digital Bookmap platform. Do I need it to access Replay Mode for US Futures? If not, how do I go about downloading data for Replay Mode so I can familiarize myself with the platform on Crude Oil?

Thanks,
Oldporkchops

The free Digital Bookmap is for Cryptos only and you cannot connect futures-data, for futures you need at least the Global Bookmap version.

Hi,

The free Bookmap version only works with 1 digital currency in the live market. It also connects to a delayed dxfeed for US equities, and allows for a previously recorded futures file to be played in Replay Mode -- this file is included in the Bookmap download. This should give you a good sense of how Bookmap operates.

If you'd like to connect to live futures and/or US Equities data, then you will need to subscribe to Bookmap for at least a month. Cancel at any time, but you still get access for the amount of time you paid for. Note you will also need to provide the data.

regards,

Bruce
