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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I just got it. It needs L2 data feed. Any ideas on which is best provider. I'm thinking kinetick with NT7. Not many comments from other users. Anybody out there?

Kinetick is licensed from IQFeed. Search IQFeed on the forum and you'll find tons of comments, I would say all positive for the most part.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Thanks. Right now I'm using the dreaded IB, but only upto 3 feeds with market depth available. Sure is a cheaper option than IQ or Kinetick when exchange fees added to their 2 basic costs.

Kinetick is the same data as IQFeed, but set up and licensed for use only with Ninja.

Despite that limitation, Bookmap includes a Ninja indicator that pipes data from NT to Bookmap, so you are set.

when price gets to a turning point, can you see large orders in book map ready to be executed in time to do anything about it?or is it just a tool to look back at what has already happened ? thanks to all for input

Hey Joker,
I found this for you Bookmap Forum ? View forum - Data Feeds
It is a forum for bookmap users. It isn't very active but you might be able to find someone using the tools on it.

FT71 did a webinar on it as well.

I use it daily and been doing so since it came out, alongside with jigsaw. Check out my YT link, it's not in English, but I do use it. It's a DOM, visual DOM with Limits history, very useful to spot Liquidity loading and taking areas, icebergs

Using NT/continuum would only give 5 levels of bids/offers on each side, would this limit the information bookmap can show?

I saw some videos on bookmap, it seems to have 20 levels of bids/offers displaying on it.

I'm assuming bookmap is getting the same info as the DOM on NT.
