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


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

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

Hmmm, that's interesting... "both data feeds display full market depth"? I spent $29 to get BookMap to "display full market depth" and I'm still waiting for it. Can't get yesterday's to display and can't get today's to display. Just when am I supposed to get it? Cancelled my one month subscription. Can't wait to find out what I "can't get" next week. Wait, let me guess... I can't get a refund. This is the reality of data issues. As you can see, Loading historical data, which the screenshot clearly shows I needed, was grayed out and unavailable.

Aragorn,

As Tr8er mentioned, the markets are closed today. When you start Bookmap, a tick or occurrence must take place in the live market in order for data to begin loading, therefore new nor historical data will be displayed today in Bookmap. However, you can use Replay Mode to replay a recorded file. You maybe consider checking out our youtube page and searching for Bookmap Replay Mode. You'll see some videos there on how to operate it. Else, you'll need to wait until the market opens to begin receiving data.

regards,

Bruce

I am/was very much aware that the Markets are closed today. I purchased the historical data early Thursday morning MST. I attempted to load Wednesday's historical data to no avail. I asked Support if there was a set time data resets for each day. I got no answer to the question. Towards the end of the day I attempted to again load the data either for Wednesday or Thursday. Again to no avail.
As a matter of fact, and you can check for yourself, the market traded 1 contract after the Close. I know, I was watching it, as I was attempting to load data.

Hi Aragorn,

I think it best to continue this thread at support@bookmap.com. Please mention your questions from Futures.io and put it to my attention as well. I'd be happy to assist you further. I can get you replay data so you can check out Bookmap over the weekend.

As this is a Review of BookMap it seems fitting to update on the previous discussion.
I received a response from BookMap support telling me that their server was down on Thursday. That would explain why the historical data was unavailable.
I did contact support@bookmap.com. Please keep in mind, as I have, it is Easter weekend. Bruce responded and resolved the data issue. Thank-you!
