Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

I tried out the BookMap program.

Was wondering if there was an upgrade coming sometime in the future. I like the program and I think its great but it needs some minor improvements.

Request for fresh WTI and natty data

Could anyone (either the vendor or existing users) make records and upload CQG data for front CL and NG please (preferably recorded during certain time windows)? I just downloaded a free version of the application and would like to give it a try for time windows I'm interested in with a fresh set of data. Thank you in advance.

Yeah, like about 100 of the Stage 5 Trading clients. (including me)

They have been running a special for us that ends this Friday. It has been going on for about 6 weeks now.

FT loves the thing. Me too, but recall it is still no holy grail. No tool will ever tell you what is going to happen, only give you a better view of what has happened.

Anyway, if you call Stage 5 you can probably get in on the special. (Stage5trading.com)

In my completely biased opinion you should open an account there too, but like I said, I'm biased! The thought of trying to tame the markets without FT71's guidance gives me chills.

Speaking of which, FT posted this elsewhere on futures.io (formerly BMT) yesterday: Trade Wisdom Segment

Good luck!
-Bob

hi @VeloxPro are there any other screenshots with Bookmap on Ninja.

the last post for bookmap on March 2014 for Ninja was a bit messy..& guess it has since improved or any webinars how it looks with Ninja.

I am a pure order flow trader, and I have been using Bookmap since they started. Very reactive guys, with a lot of (useful) updates.

Very visual way to look at the DOM and to spot algos activity. I don't place order from bookmap, and still rely on my numerical DOM (Jigsaw), but side by side, this is just great for DOM trading and order flow reading.

It will not do anything else than a (good) DOM does, but very visual, and you can keep track of Limit orders history.

Not for everyone but I can't fault it.

They just came out with a new version (4.2) this weekend. Very nice.

Thing I think I like best is that it now zooms the x axis with the mouse scroll button.

Also, I'd say it is more than a DOM. Yes, you get the same info as a DOM, but because the orders leave a trail it shows the market speeding up and slowing down, as well as when the market moves to pockets of liquidity and then either bounces off them or pushes through, giving a hint as to the strength of the move.

Fair warning, they said their intro pricing is ending soon.

Looks like I got in at the right time. I bought it last night. I read this thread last night and then went to youtube and watched pretty much every video they have posted there and decided to give it a try. The 2 week money back no questions asked trial is nice, but wish it was 30 days. The product works as advertised on Ninja 7 so far. I was doing a free trial on Auction Dashboard but that add on is harder to learn and harder to see what is going on. The way BookMap is laid out it makes it much easier to decipher what is going on than Auction Dashboard. I do think Auction Dashboard has some potential, but may not make it to prime time until Ninja 8 is out and the programmer can make it do more within Ninja 8 IMO. It's not using java like BookMap does. So anyway, Thanks to everyone who posted in this thread, it was helpful. I think I have a new tool that will be useful for quite some time!

@dom64 thanks for your note. Yea nice tool. Would you care to get into details why you think its good from a OF perspective. Is it because as you say it provides a heatmap from the perspective of visually observing Limit Orders.
