Couple questions if anyone knows the answers (...I cant seem to find from a quick google, always a good first choice):

1. Is the lifetime license still available? looks like it was pulled recently..
2. does the tool support NT8?

Cheers,

Sands

Veloxpro does have a 'beta' version of BookMap that runs on NT8...(I have it installed on my NT8 box). I purchased a license some time ago, so I can't comment on any current pricing. I do use BookMap every day. I like the tool.

I'm starting to understand BookMap and with just a few more features/customizations it could be a complete standalone option for me. I don't like using a lot of different tools and I desire more of a 1 ring to rule them all approach.

@Bookmap
I tried the new CVD indicator and really liked that I could add automatic reset times to it. I wanted to reset it at the beginning of a session and it was much easier having the program do it rather than needing to do it manually.
Could you consider adding the same feature to the volume profiles. One profile I look at is a session profile reset from that session 'open'. At the moment shortly before the open I set the 'Automatic Reset' for say 15 minutes so it resets at the open automatically and I then have fifteen minutes to switch off the auto reset. This gives a profile that starts exactly at the open but it is a little tedious doing it every day, and needing to do it for every replay. If as well as having volume profile options to 'Reset' and 'Automatic Reset', there was also the ability to add options to automatically 'Reset at Time of Day' that would be great.

Hi Matthew28,

Happy to learn that you like the CVD and the automatic reset.

Regarding the new feature you requested of Automatic reset to the Session Volume Profile (SVP), we added it to the development list and put it in high priority, please expect to get it within few days.

We will followup and let you know.

Best

Hello @Bookmap team,
Great customer service. It was only a suggestion, I didn't actually expect you to agree to implement it so quickly.
One question I was going to email support but may as well ask here in case anybody else is wondering. I have had a full Bookmap licence for quite awhile but stopped using it then came back to it. Since coming back I have noticed that when I restart the current Beta version (I switch off over night rather than leave it running), the COB columns shows extended data. When I used to use Bookmap I would start the program in the morning and there would just be the initial ten layers of order book up and down which would then extend. So where is the order book depth history coming from as Bookmap doesn't, or didn't, import history? The exchanges, connecting through Rithmic, still only supply ten levels of depth don't they?
Thanks

Hi Matthew28,

Bookmap records and displays millions of data points because it shows the entire depth of market. Historical trade data only shows thousands of data points, since it is only recording the transactions on the best bid/ask, instead of the entire depth. Bookmap doesn't import historical depth of market data while connected to the live markets -- storing several days of DOM data may begin to erode computer performance. Of course you can always access your recorded data within Bookmap's Replay Mode.

I see you are connecting Bookmap via Rithmic. Please note that COMEX and NYMEX now offer full market depth, not just 20 levels as most markets (10 on the bid, 10 on the ask). At the moment, Rithmic is the only Bookmap data provider that offers full depth. Take a look at GC or CL and notice the full depth distinction. We hope more data provider will offer this soon as well.

Also, please note you can leave Bookmap running on your PC for several days, but have the data refresh depending on a specific time inputted by the user. For example, you can leave Bookmap open, but then at 9:30 am EST schedule the data to refresh and start anew for the cash session. You can also select it to repeat the scheduled refresh if you choose as well.

regards,

The Bookmap Team
