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.

Ah, so that's the answer. I didn't say but I was looking at a NYMEX instrument. I am surprised I haven't already read somewhere about the full depth being offered by Rithmic. Being able to see further out in the book is a nice distinction especially for those interested in trading the thinner instruments.

I will try leaving the program running and use the refresh feature. I tend to like to see the past few hours of data when the market is quiet, such as during the Asian session at the UK stocks open. Switching the PC on an hour before the open meant I wasn't seeing as far back as I liked.
Thanks again.

Note. I have just noticed the relatively new Bookmap thread over in Platforms and Indicators, https://futures.io/platforms-indicators/41376-bookmap-xray.html , I will post any further questions there.

@Bookmap
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,

We have implemented your request to reset the DOM volume profile column. It is currently available in Bookmap 5.0 build 396, so please update through the Help menu>>Update>>Check for Updates.

Then open a volume column, right click in that column, and select Automatic Reset. In the pop up window, choose to either "Reset at" at a specific time, or "Reset every" specific time interval for the drop down. Input the desired time to reset and that should do the trick. Please see the attached image.

Thanks for your feedback, I hope you enjoy the updated functionality. Let us know if there's anything else we can further assist you with.

regards,

Bruce

Some of those categories are: Futures Broker of the Year, Options Broker of the Year, Trading Platform of the Year, Options Platform of the Year, Mobile Platform of the Year, Data Feed of the Year, and Trading Product of the Year. There are also an additional six categories that are focused on user contributed content on our site, including: Member of the Year, Webinar of the Year, Thread of the Year, Journal of the Year, Programmer of the Year, and Indicator of the Year.

We then opened our voting system so that traders are the world could vote for their favorite in each category. When the voting closed, we selected the top three winners in each category and have awarded them as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place (Gold, Silver, Bronze awards).

ts review on book map



this person is not correct on every matter. he gives Jasons oil trading room 5 stars for example. he is reviewing book map like a trading system using the idea they do not provide any records the software gives you and edge. i do not think they are marketing it that way. there just selling it as a tool. you can get a free trail. there not asking for 3000 up front or charging for training. 50 to 100 a month ..quit any time you want... i just do not smell a rat here. TS has exposed a lot of bad people that should be jailed. i just think he has it wrong on book map.

This bothers me
https://www.tradingschools.org/reviews/bookmap/

"Nothing is provable or testable"

Who made this site and author an authority on trading. He is biased against order flow. He says so. He is also not trained in order flow. Yet repeatedly bashes it.

I have other issues with the tradingschools.org site and EmmetMoores reviews.
He attempts to persuade the reader that he is coming off with various scientific methodology, yet he only confirms it if the product, school or trader shows profit.
Part of how they want to this is code up and test what ever product or school they review.
If I was successful at a product like BM or other why would I have to provide code to some random person?

In response to "nothing testable or provable"
Bookmap allows replay. Hence it is testable and repeatable.
Tradingschool.org claims they did 40hrs of watching BM. That's an uneducated person watching orderflow. How did they know what to look for? Did they do replay? Did they compare and isolate specific set ups?

Tradingschool.org is against reading the dom.
How would they provide a fair and reputable examination of a visual dom?

Emmet blast away. Refute me.

@KahunaDog
I partly agree. I do think his idea of requesting trading room traders to agree to have their results automatically sent to him and validated is a good one. If someone is claiming to trade successfully in a room I would want to see provable results and a reasonably consistent track record before I signed up.
But for a subjective tool like Bookmap, not a forex robot or a blackbox trading system, the review doesn't make sense. I don't see how volume and the order book can't be useful information, along with orderflow, or the speed the volume is being transacted at; as that is all the market is. How one attempts to use it or interpret it is another matter but to say it is worthless is dumb. It just emphasises that he isn't a successful trader reviewing the product from a position of authority, he is a former boiler room salesman who broke the law and went to prison. I have read some funny reviews on his site but I don't bother with it these days.

but he is correct most of the time. i did not agree on his reviews on O F A or MtProdictor but both do over hype and over price there product. 80% of the vendor on his list are very bad actors.
