many have asked. but unfortunately there's isn't much useful information around. just recently I showed a couple of examples, including some links from market delta:


Silvester17 View Post
I'm afraid you aren't going to find a lot of useful information on that subject. I can show you a few things I'm looking for in my very limited view. but I'm not going into details since I'm not teaching or selling anything and also I'm not a professional poster

in a very basic form, there're 2 patterns I like to pay attention:

- heavy buying/selling, but price goes the other way. it's like running into a wall, unlimited supply/demand:




- very little interest, small volume, buying/selling is drying up. price goes the other way:




then you can add a few things:

- location (I like the daily vwap for that purpose)
- divergence (delta is positive, but bar closes lower / delta is negative, but bar closes higher)
- highest volume of the bar (vpoc)
- previous deltas
- etc

sometimes market delta has a few interesting articles. just checked and I was surprised to find something very similar to what I do



anyway, here're the basics:

Basics » FootprintChart.com

also I have to say, I'm a complete order flow freak. but I also understand it's not for everybody. some even get easily fooled trying to read it

anyway trading with order flow has many advantages. but there're quite a few things you have to pay attention to. so I welcome everything that makes it easier. looks like this auction dashboard could be a candidate.

of course there're still losing trades, but one thing that I really like is many times there's only very little heat with your entries. 1 tick, 2 ticks and 1 tick in the example below. (all trades based on order flow, with help of vwap):

I'm partially duplicating a similar recent post, but if you link to this, I believe it has some good resources to start you off in the world of footprint.

I've also posted some intermittent stuff re footprint patterns and moves that I use, like this one here.

This AuctionDashboard is pretty phenomenal; the fact most everything is exposed and scriptable into a NinjaTrader strategy is quite cool.

this is complicated stuff your best bet is go to youtube, search for order market flow, look for explain that makes sense to you.

watch a few videos on youtube to get the gist of it. once you have done that just watch it on a chart in the live mkt, record data to watch it later, download new data to watch past dates etc. watch it at areas of interest to you. they say this is what you should do when wanting to trade from just a DOM. after enough time you slowly start to see things within the orders that are happening. are they trapping people here, are they accumulating order for a continuation of trend? that type of stuff. it might end up being more useful to you if you put your own point of view on it rather than someone saying 'this is the way you look at it'.

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

I just downloaded the software a couple of days ago. Been watching the videos and reading the manual. There is a pretty good learning curve, but you can start out by using each tool it offers as you learn and continue to add to your strategy.

Stephen seems like a standup guy with great customer service IMHO.

Jigsaw although much, much easier to learn, seems primitive compared to Auction Dashboard.

I tried this software when it was less expensive for a trial.
I was not impressed with the errors in the demo product and several revisions were released during my trial period.

I decided to stay with 9G Dom.
I can customize 9G and it works well for me.

I was concerned about the auction dashboard backing.
The business address was less that I expected.
Although it may be a reliable operation, I would give it some time to prove it's longevity.

FWIW.

Thanks for the input...he has had a couple of "bug fixes" in the last week that I have been testing. We will keep that in mind. So far it looks very promising.

Happy trading

I started looking at videos and user manual a week or so back and downloaded the software a couple of days ago.
On the trial offer AD support said the trial is 3 weeks and they offer more if you request it.

I will try to update in a week or so after I take a closer look at it.


Happy Trading

I don't remember how long it was but the errors prevented my testing it for the full trial period.
I really don't like to be the beta tester unless I've agreed to do so prior to testing.

I'm sure some will find it suitable for their needs but I did not.
My biggest concern as stated previously is the reliability and longevity of the operation.

I like it. The price is right. I've been using it for about two months. It is in development so it's like opening up a present every time they add a new feature.

Yes this is great tool...not like all the other lagging indicators. I just sent email to steve to add the functionality OFA has.

Each Bar has

1. Bid & Ask Volume at price
2. Point of Control
3. Volume Cluster Prices
4. Value Area High
5. Value Area Low
6. VWAP
7. Bid/Ask Ratio Sequences

It is still only $150 so the risk is small. They keep on improving the features witch is great!

I mix the auction dashboard with some gomi tools for the best of both worlds. It takes a little figuring out but can be done with the help of Z-order in the chart settings and separate charts for the bars and the visualizer.

I mix the gomi tools for display reasons not accuracy. I want to see the volume shapes without the separate red green delta its distracting. I also prefer separate buy side sell side text color for the aggression I get from the gomi ladder.

I like: the book deltas on the auction visualizer. the chart back fill feature works well. the trap and most volume alerts are informative too.

The other day I needed to have my licence updated for a new computer. They took care of it and wrote me a timely and pleasant email.

I've been an owner of Auction Dashboard since early January.

A continuing problem in AD is it's inability to print Range bars correctly on a consistant basis.

Sometimes days go by with no problems .. other days, bars will starts printing incorrectly, I remove AD from

the chart, reapply AD and that solves the problem. Still other times, bars continue to print incorrectly even after removing/reapplying

AD several times.


I've contacted support several times about this and they'll right back usually very promptly, that although the bars aren't the correct height, all of the data is there
....There are not any missing or added contracts in the displayed bars.

Well, in addition to wanting to see the correct order flow in the bars, I also want to see the correct stairstepping action displayed and

the way AD sometimes prints their range bars, I am not seeing that.


They are constantly adding new bells and whistles, new meters, new looks to their software. There have been plenty of upgrades

since I first bought the software, and yet through it all, they still can't get a range bar to print correctly.

I have just heard back from AD and I am satisfied with their explanation.

I do think the second option mentioned may solve the problem, at least for me, and I believe they may try to implement this option.

I am happy to report that the guys at AD have corrected the problem concerning the Range bars.

Earlier this week I was given AD version 1.2.2.113 to test and the Range bars printed correctly all week long, even during the FED announcement on Wednesday when things get kind of crazy.

I am now 100% satisfied with this software and can recommend without any hesitation.

@Silvester17 agree very interesting and rightly said maybe not for everyone. These guys have taken OF to the next level ..watched all their youtubes. Every functionality out there and more is integrated. Quite amazing period.

BTW have always been intrigued by your PV indicator. Is there a specific reason to use them on range charts. Why don't you use it on volume charts for ex..200 or 300 vol as example. Any insights. Hope am not diverting from this thread.

And thnx OP...had known of the tool but never looked at it..but their vids r a wow which I looked at after going thru this thread. did not know of a thread existing here.

Cheers

of course there're still losing trades, but one thing that I really like is many times there's only very little heat with your entries. 1 tick, 2 ticks and 1 tick in the example below. (all trades based on order flow, with help of vwap):

I just did a 3 week free trial. I do like Auction Dashboard. However, I did a free trial on BookMap also and decided to go with Bookmap. I just like the way the limit orders are presented on the charts. Also, the text is easier to read in Bookmap.
It is blatantly obvious that Stephen has some serious coding skills. I always received courteous and timely emails from AD. I also get a feeling that he is trying to build an honest business. AD has some SERIOUS potential IMO. I just don't think it's arrived yet. I dunno, I kinda feel like I should maybe go ahead and buy it and just wait it out to see where it goes in the future. He's always adding more features. I guess I should just send him an email and let him know that I decided to go with BookMap and why. He deserves some honest feedback.
If your reading this and like order flow information and haven't done a free trial of Auction Dashboard on Ninja, you should give it a try. It's worth a look! For me, I just liked BookMap better....

@Silvester17 agree very interesting and rightly said maybe not for everyone. These guys have taken OF to the next level ..watched all their youtubes. Every functionality out there and more is integrated. Quite amazing period.

BTW have always been intrigued by your PV indicator. Is there a specific reason to use them on range charts. Why don't you use it on volume charts for ex..200 or 300 vol as example. Any insights. Hope am not diverting from this thread.

And thnx OP...had known of the tool but never looked at it..but their vids r a wow which I looked at after going thru this thread. did not know of a thread existing here.

Cheers

@paps,

yes, especially looking at order flow, I only consider range charts. I tried to explain why on a few occasions. like here:


Silvester17 View Post
this is just my personal preference.

let's say the market gets to a level where it could reverse. the market could spend a long time or trade a lot of volume around that level.

- with range bars you only get a single bar for the top/bottom. only price will be considered

- with minute bars you might get several bars. depending how much time was spent at that level

- with volume bars you also might get more than one bar. depending of course how much volume was traded

I think it's easier to analyze as few bars as possible. and I want to see what happened at that price in a single bar if possible.

of course if you choose "big" charts, like 30 minutes or 100,000 volume, you also might get only one bar at the top/bottom. but for me there's too much information in those long bars. and also (for me), it's more about analyzing than looking for reliable signals.

or in very simple terms, I prefer to take trades based on price, not time or volume

It's interesting that you view it that way, because that's how I think of volume bars actually. By equalizing volume, you are essentially removing volume from the equation, and are left with only pure price action.

Just took a look at BookMap. At first I was like "what-what-what?" Am I looking at a Sonogram? But now that I understood what they are doing, I'm very intrigued. I also like to see the limit orders...

In the end, both products look very interesting, glad I found this thread...

You may like to watch a video FT71 did last week about this tool. He is a big proponent of it.

when you say:

- By equalizing volume, you are essentially removing volume from the equation, and are left with only pure price action.

then you must also say about time charts:

- By equalizing time, you are essentially removing time from the equation, and are left with only pure price action.

I wouldn't agree with both statements. you are not removing volume or time, you're comparing what price does for a fixed amount of volume or time. as for range charts, you don't need to remove anything. the only thing you're looking at is price itself.

but again, I'm not saying you should use range charts instead of volume charts. this is just my personal preference.

Well, that's true, if you think time has a high level of inherent value, but since time is static, I am less interested in it. If you consider price and volume to be the key, equalize volume and you are left with only price. And if you are bothered by the time dimension, then you can measure the time of each volume candle as well, which I have done, although I did not find that to be overwhelmingly helpful, which is why i am less interested in it.

I like range bars, my only problem with them is that unless you have large ones, they can develop very quickly, but perhaps I just need to fiddle with them more...

Yupp agree @Silvester17 had never used range bars. But I see your point. Have also seen someone using range in OF in a darn efficient manner.

Have specific info from my volume chart which will always run. But transitioning to an 8 range or lower for very specific OF events.


On a different note must thank guys who started this thread as have not seen much info on AD on the net. So will do a small review and kudos. From what I have seen looking into AD they have very unique features. I got AD as soon as I saw what it could do on youtube. never ran a trial. It has boat load of info....still getting to learn. But it gives me some specific info from OF perspective i was looking and searching for and did not find it any where with 3rd party turnkey vendors. I do have 2 other OF tools side by side which I won't name here to be fair .. but am impressed with context and thoughts behind the development at AD. It feels like working with a startup and has exactly what i was looking for in OF. I say this looking at the inspiration behind bringing to market such a tool..and also say this as it seems to be constantly evolving looking at frequency of past releases means constant fixes. Lol but everything comes with risk which i atleast am game on for. I must say i do not know the developers so it's my 2cs....and my passion l for understanding very specific events which happen in ES every single day approx 7 or 8 times which is being supplemented by AD in understanding.

Only thing I don't like and I see many 3rd party ninja developers using some license file nothing to do with AD. I am a pure tradestation user where I buy a product and I need a lifetime license. I am willing to pay for updates. Many vendors with ninja seem to authenticate everytime. I just don't like that idea. If vendor closes shop the product becomes useless immediately.

Anyways cheers..the thread is for AD. AD is one of the finest OF Tools out there. I wish AD only the best and success.

Ad is a good tool and it has been evolving with new features. I purchased the licence earlier this year . Few vendors charge arm and leg for their tools. Ad has been very reasonably priced for what it can do. I have used with wide variety of bars and had no issues.
Over all very happy with the software.

@optionzen agree

have you checked the ninja script interface?....am not good at code/scripts hence would love to hear if you used that part. seems that would be off immense value if wanting to script or trigger on certain events. any thoughts on this ?

Paps , I am not a programmer hence I may not be the best person to speak on the scripting. I believe Silvester17 or other members with programming background can help answer that. I use Ad along with market profile and I just an end user.

Np. I guess someone using the product would be in a better position to comment. But just that there are some hooks to events is something I have not seen in other OF tools.

Will explore this in course of time

Paps you should ask the Ad support team directly , they should provide you with correct information, their support is good and they are very responsive to any email queries.
Please feel free to post any finding to share information with our generous forumites.

hi @optionzen do you use just the DOM or do you also use any charts. If so what kind of charts and how many. Would you care to share. Also wondering which version of AD are you using and how are you backfilling data. Do you use the Backfill utility.

If you are in a position to share 2 exact same charts of 1 Min or if you using Tick charts share 2 of your Tick charts.... was trying to look at 2 charts could be any of the Range/Tick/Min for the same instrument if possible. i was observing some stuff and wanted to check.

thnx

hi there... any AD users here. I do use AD. Find it great. But have some issue with some data and wanted to compare.

If anyone using AD is kind to post to charts showing the ladders.....can be for any instrument...ES/YM/NQ or whatever. Could be Tick/Range/Volume or any kind of chart. But please include atleast 2 of them...means exact same charts, same time frame but captured on 2 different chart screens/windows. Am having a data issue and would like to see if anyone if experiencing the same.

thnx

Paps - I use a 3 range AD chart with a Vwap in it, along with finalg market profile chart, 6765 vol chart, Jigsaw dom. I use market profile based on JPJ trading methodology. Also I use the 6765 Volume chart with just 21 ema, BBmacd and volume profile on it on it, I just draw trend lines and support- resistance lines on that chart.
Regarding back fill on Ad - I just back fill it past 5 sessions if needed.

hi @optionzen many thanks for sharing. I actually wanted to see 2 identical charts. I observed some issue yesterday evening and wanted to check if it is an user error hence requested for 2 similar charts.

Am enclosing exact same charts....i.e on 2 Monitors....can also be on single monitor and same data points are seen

Charts seen yesterday...when i could not figure whats going on...seemed a little off whack ...in few numbers and timestamps
Range

Also seen in Minute

not sure if spoke too soon...enclosing current market as we type

spotted a discrepancy and hence will be great to know what I am doing wrong



cheers and thanks

update: added live data bar completion... since it is live data also...not sure if its a backfill issue...it can however be user error.

Paps - can you forward this to AD support and ask them the reason behind this issue? Is this from the same data feed ? Over all AD works very well but there should be an explanation to this ? Did you upgrade your AD to the latest version ?

My 4 range looks different, doesn't have as many bars. I think you should email Steven your images and let him answer it. I'm not sure what's causing your issue. Could be because you started your range charts from a different time, therefore the volume wouldn't quite match up... Not sure.
Anyway, here is my chart:

@optionzen yes its live data with cqgcontinuum...but 2 charts with AD on it....nothing else. other ninja charts run separate to the AD charts

i don think its the data... i do have JS...bookmap and Gomi running. Gom and JS shows no discrepancy in details ....with JS on R-Tape and Gom for Ladder charts..hence on AD thinking if I am doing something erroneous

yes...will update if i hear anything

if you get the time...the chart you sent across ...could you possibly have 2 exact same charts. even 2 charts with only AD and no other of the vwap etc you use can be useful

thanks

hi @SatchFan you know you can fit in more if need to...just use the Ninja function of reducing the Horizontal Time Axis....it should be exactly same....what you seem to be using is the default view....but view should not and does not matter.

also you may want to say which version of the s/w you using. Am on 10-8-2015 version. And if possible please do attach 2 exact same charts. If we do not have exact same charts running....we would not see this from one chart. As there would not be any discrepancy

cheers

Yes, I'm aware I can adjust the chart to show more bars. I just created a new chart, back filled, then scrolled back to the area you are interested in. I don't use 4 range bars, so I had to create a new chart.

Also, my point is, My 4 range chart does not match either one of your 4 range charts. I have the same time area shown that your discrepancy candle happened in, but I don't even have that candle. I realize that your concerned that 2 separate chart windows with the same setup is not showing the same data. But what I'm saying is, my chart with 4 range bars isn't showing the same data as either one of your charts! I'm on Ninja with Continuum.
The time of your last 3 candles on your chart are 18:19, 18:29 and 18:46. Look at my chart and the time they plotted. Big difference and different volumes. So I could post up 2 charts but since they are showing different data and different bars than yours, not sure it would matter. I'm thinking your chart and mine should match up first before I create 2 charts to see if I come up with different data on my 2 charts.

Anyway, it's been a long day and I'm off to bed. Hope you get it figured out. Emailing Steven at AD support would probably get you the quickest correct answer.

Anyway, it's been a long day and I'm off to bed. Hope you get it figured out. Emailing Steven at AD support would probably get you the quickest correct answer.

@SatchFan i had not seen that you posted a chart. was on the cell

You know what....i think you hit the problem.. . Both the charts should be exactly same. I dont see how a range chart can change. Something does not seem right.

anyways.... am sure...if you pull up 2 charts similar to what you posted here for yourself....am sure you may see it on yr end. And if you dont see a problem at your end....pls do mention that here. Will be great to know

will update...if i hear anything from AD. I dont think anyone other than me is having a issue.....

cheers

@SatchFan & @optionzen am copying the response from AD pertaining to the data which I checked if i could post. Thanks for sharing your charts which was valuable. On a separate note would also love to see how you might have integrated AD in your trading if that is something you journal or can share.

I think it's a darn solid product and amazing insight and potential. It just works well with what i try and look at. I will look forward to working with AD on this in coming time. If i find or hear something will check on possibility of post.

++++++from AD +++

About the discrepancy in the numbers: yes, backfill is not guaranteed to be tick for tick exact. We have a page in the online reference that explains:

BackFill - Auction Dashboard? - Order Flow Front-End For NinjaTrader®

This topic can get pretty wordy quickly. What we do now with the backfill is load historical ask, bid and last data from NinjaTrader, and reconstruct. However, Ninja's data is not stored with the same exact accuracy as the live feed. Therefore we do the best we can with the reconstruction. The total volume should be very robust, but the sequence of bid and ask updates will not exactly match the live feed, and so the volumes on the buy and sell side won't be exact. NinjaTrader 8 should bring another option for more accuracy. This is a well known limitation, and you'll find discussion on Ninja's forums about it. We are also trying to finish up another option for NinjaTrader 7 that should be more accurate, but will only not be able to run in the background ... It will be a little more processor intensive but should provide accuracy.

If you need to have more accuracy in historical data, the replay should play back with tick accuracy, so you could load replay data for days that you want to see, and play back. This is not as convenient, but at the moment we do not have other options. We do not store historical data, and we rely on the data that NinjaTrader makes available. You will see some new options shortly.

Another thing that will make different numbers show is the True Auction Balance. Please be sure you have this turned off if you are comparing numbers. That will add limit order numbers into the displayed balances. Control-Click on the bars, and in the volume menu be sure the option is off.

If this doesn't seem to answer your question,please let me know and I will look at something in more detail to learn more. I will see if I can reproduce something here.

There is one last thing to note: numbers can be different with different data providers. However it seems clear that you have two charts open in the same instance of NinjaTrader ... So that should not be a factor.

In one if your screenshots, I believe the one minute chart, the numbers appear to match. Are you seeing this on only certain types if charts? What about other instruments?

++++End from AD++++

cheers

Paps - I do not have a journal, I have little time with full time employment and family + 2 small kids both kids below 4 years old.

I was recommend by a trader at work, who use this volume node tool, I do not know how it works, but what I read out of the vendors page looks promising. It can complement AD to weed out volume anomalies . I plan to test this trial next weekend and I have been busy with work this weekend. I have no clue how it works.

not sure on what you pointed to..but what i have for identification of the volume nodes is GOM. I think it does that quite well. However will check what you pointed to.

But i think AD does a great job. This is a chart of AD/JS/Bookmap. Only screen i look at when looking at the 3 tools.
This is Appl pre-earnings. It said where price was headed

I would like to offer my experience with this vendor. It can all be summed up in a few emails seen below. My email starts the conversation at the bottom. Unfortunately I must have deleted his, Steven, response but he emailed me 9 months later to see if I was interested and to say thanks again.

I do not want to hurt anyone's business or efforts at making a living to be sure. Never! But I thinks it's perhaps fair to say he does not or did not have a very good grasp of trading at the time I had an interaction with him. Please of course decide for yourself whom to do business with.

The following is my email (bottom. read this first) and then work up to his. Be sure to click on the attachment to increase its size.

good that you bring this up. not negating...as everyone has opinions. And it is good such that people reading this knows what they getting into and do so because if it is useful to them.. as i guess a trial may be available. again this is just my opinion and not an endorsement as i too use many things.

For me I do have some of the best in OF i.e Jigsaw & Bookmap and few things not discussed here. I also do have 2 licences for AD as i need a backup always in place and i consider AD also good. There are very few things I look into AD for.....and it compliments my style of trading at very critical turn points. No 2 traders trade the same way fortunately & hence it suits me or atleast it gives me a glimpse of some stuff i try in my pursuits of trading.

someone told me i look at a lot of things...and yes i do as i evolve. Life is not constant so why my trading.

AD is just one of my decision aiding models If I CHOOSE to use. hence its not that i rely on 1 thing....it is a eco system which is used from decision models to mentors and everything in between. hence good @Blash you raise this....as people reading thru should make up their own mind and not be influenced by comments they read on a forum.

it was a combination of AD --where it showed me limits were in place...& Jigsaw at that time showed buys in its Depth....& Bookmap showed the hidden orders. well its not how i use it now....but this was what i was looking for during the earnings to understand where price may go. perhaps a lucky guess...

well i forget exact scenario....but whatever it was...the fuzzy logic seemed to work on prevailing price.

Paps jigsaw now has heat map called vista, similar functionality as bookmap. Jigsaw heatmap is still being developed and is still in beta testing.

Hi Silvester17,

Thanks for your post. I wasn't sure on the last chart where VWAP was - are the bands standard deviations of VWAP, as many traders appear to use?

I was also curious to understand what the "PV" indicator was.

Regards,

Gordon


Silvester17 View Post
many have asked. but unfortunately there's isn't much useful information around. just recently I showed a couple of examples, including some links from market delta:



also I have to say, I'm a complete order flow freak. but I also understand it's not for everybody. some even get easily fooled trying to read it

anyway trading with order flow has many advantages. but there're quite a few things you have to pay attention to. so I welcome everything that makes it easier. looks like this auction dashboard could be a candidate.

of course there're still losing trades, but one thing that I really like is many times there's only very little heat with your entries. 1 tick, 2 ticks and 1 tick in the example below. (all trades based on order flow, with help of vwap):

hi @grose,

yes, those are standard deviations bands of the current vwap. if interested, here's the link to @Fat Tails excellent vwap indicator:



and in case you need a little "more", he also has an even better commercial version. you can pm him or go to his website:

https://lizardtrader.com/

I guess by "pv" indicator, you mean my gom_delta_price_volume indicator. you can download it here:



the idea to create a "price volume relationship" indicator came from @cory. his description can be found here:



good luck

This is great, Silverster17 - thanks! I have started looking at the chart where you have a number of pivots marked using PV and delta divergence. I'm sure I'll have some questions about how you select some of the signals and not others First, I need to bone up on Delta Divergence. Thanks again!

Yes have seen the heatmaps. However for me have moved onto stuff similar to what @Silvester17 pointed to since I want to stick with actual happenings in the market. though I have jigsaw..bookmap and AD I don't really need any to tell me what is actually happening in realtime and hence dont use them. I have these transposed onto my charts for accurate view of the market. I still think AD has some serious stuff they do....but I don't really use it.

also must add Jigsaw/AD/bookmap all excellent tools. But for me at the moment....too much of numerics is fuzzy. But thats just me...has nothing to do with the tools

anyone here using AD....have you tried to use alerts on the DOM/Visualizer. If so what kind of alerts were you are to set.

I think AD has some very unique stuff. Hence trying to see if I can filter and have audibles on the DOM...not on charts.

@paps I use a 5 min ADV (advances) chart with my Auction Dashboard using the ES as proxy for the YM and NQ.
I track 5 individual POCs VAL, VAH with AD, then use the Overlay of all 5 days to see major support and resistance. As you know the price can't be beat. Very inexpensive.

hi @COTtrader thnx. lol yea the price is awesome...Yes AD seems to have just about everything in their tool. It does many things on profiles/MP which i really do not use. However since they have done so much....documentation sometime is rather cumbersome to search thru.

For me it's where the Limits may come in. I had some time in hand and was trying to check if I can get some info to supplement my trading which is based only on Market/Limits. But more than that i am trying to check if their DOM has the capability of setting an alert. I think there is a way to set Filters on Level 2....but i have not figured that out. Also if there is a way to set an Alert on the DOM.



lol too many things on DOM & I am not a numbers guy. Hence looking to check some of what i do...if can be understood by either filters or Audible alerts thru the DOM/Auction Visualizer.

actually this is the video on the Auction Visualizer. was trying to check how to get alerts using the level 2


cheers n thnx

infact this is a better video showing the capabilities of the AD visualizer.

actually the Traded volume is what i would love to see if possible to filter. Seems like one of the best OF tools there....& also seems has lot of customization capabilities. If not hope they give the customization capability soon. it may have it...but have not figured it out.

hence will be great if anyone know's could the traded volume and the bid/ask deltas be filtered or setup with audibles.

I have multiple order flow programs. On the surface this looks very good and the price in comparison is great. I cannot compare it to Gomi.
Though I do have OFA. ACME. NOFT.
If I did not have those and was just beginning to learn order flow, I would highly consider this if entry price was my only concern.
Issues I've had with some programs in nt7 are how data intensive some can be in large part due to nt7 inefficient design.

Does this need to be run 24hrs to receive the tick data?
Or will it back tick?

I'm pretty happy with my current set up a mix of NOFT, ACME, Bookmap, mt4 and tos.

Gomi Rocks. Quite a few things I have is based of GOM..

What I also love about Gomi is no license stuff required. I dont like the idea of a vendor product requiring constant registration every single time Ninja is started. If they would have asked more $s and made done without regular check with backend licensing server would be great. This stems more what if vendor closed shop tomorrow. This is the main difference between Tradestation where vendor can give locked code. I have not seen any Ninja vendors do that.

Anyways on the resource intensive stuff. I dont think this hogs much if any at all. Ofcourse would be pc and memory dependent.

On the Tick...i dont like what i see on the backfill....& that maybe due to how Ninja handles Bid/Ask backfills at the moment. I do also have Jigsaw and Bookmap which i dont use much at all. AD is also not my primary tool....just have it on to figure out certain events on OF. So for most part if i am using AD..... i have a video capture which can be played back so that can try and understand the events i might be looking at. In effect use it for forward tests.

@KahunaDog AD does have 'backfill' capability that is quite good for the days you choose. Again, NT7 limitations would affect the accuracy of bid/ask fill due to the 1 second time stamp granularity. NT 8 greatly improves on that, or so I have heard.

@paps -- from my experience, email the AD owners who will work with you on your particular case. Let me know if they respond to your specific setup requests.

thnx @COTtrader will do if i hear back. I think the product is amazing in a way that it over achieves...i does profiles & ladders and DOM and whole lot more. However for me its just few things on the Limits & DOM that i wish to filter. Also seems they have a integration to use it with Ninjascript for custom indicators. Just not sure how flexible currently.

I wish they had a better support system by way of skype or regular webinars with Q&A sessions. Not sure how well the product has caught on...... it has tremendous potential though is what i feel.

cheers

@COTtrader will also keep this running and under test Sunday.

Maybe this will help. Shows as a Level 2 filter.

@paps I do not subscribe to Level 2.

However, following is an example of the 5 day (4 days + current day) VAH, VAL, POC Monday "after hours" (trade opportunities on ES)

AD's functionality is chock full of possibilities but is a overkill for me. Higher probability trade opportunity at these levels

Hey thanks. Yupp too much stuff on AD. It's giving many things alongwith OF. However for me I just want quotes and deltas which tells me stuff I need to know.

I am currently fine. The l2 filter is on. Next are a few additional things along with l2 filter am trying to check if possible which maybe the icing.

I would like to offer my experience with this vendor. It can all be summed up in a few emails seen below. My email starts the conversation at the bottom. Unfortunately I must have deleted his, Steven, response but he emailed me 9 months later to see if I was interested and to say thanks again.

WOW!

We in fact "released early". Auction Dashboard began as a slightly different product, with a different name. We chose to take the path of releasing early, which is known to be "dangerous" --- we simply are at that time distributing software with rough edges and incomplete features. In retrospect, we CERTAINLY feel we took a lot of heat, and paid many dues of early released software.

At the time we had evolving features. We also had "loose" documentation, in order simply to provide SOMETHING to users who were seeing rapid changes ... At this time the product has stabilized; and even includes patents pending on some technologies.

We even suffered through piracy; and possible continued antagonistic activities by those perpetrators (which we would LOVE to know anything more about, by the way; and would happily offer a reward for any lurking damages). So to us it does seem like a tough road to take that way!

And we don't know what you might have heard or seen; but through that early release, and a lot of development, we're quite happy to have made it to where we are today.

If there are any questions, we are here and would be responsive.

Safe trading,
Steven

My take is that this product provides a variety of analyses. As expressed in a couple of prior posts, there is something for everyone here. Just be selective in your choice. Can't possibly grasp all this product can do. For the money, a powerful product and its only getting better. It's dirt cheap. Other vendor products out there provide less information yet charge way more money. Should it not 'work for you', you certainly will not feel that you were ripped off.

Guys at AD, stay the course. You're doing a great job and your work as developers is appreciated within the NT community.

@steevcoco
Steven, i suppose you represent AD here?

I am a satisfied customer and i am very happy for what i get for this way too cheap Price. There ist no reason for me to invest a multiple thereof for other products.

Personally, i think that o good product only can get better if customer share their opinions, here are my 2 Cents:

- i saw yesterday, there is ?? a new relase with the new bar type. I will be happy if you would inform your customers per mail about the release launching so they can use it

- you may want consider working to make AD faster. I use 8 5min Charts on 4 27 Inch Screens and i attach further to each Chart another AD Chart. If i load 5 days of back-fill AD, AD and any other Chart on NT gets slower. My PC runs the newest Intel Xeon so there is no lack of computing power.

Best,

Chris

NT7 will only run on one core. You may want something like ProcessHacker to monitor NT7's performance. I can't think of being without it puts me deeply in tune with all four machines. Sounds like it's maxed out on that core.

Yes: that is true. I thought that Futures.io would actually mark my postings that way automatically ... we have informed admin of our account status. Perhaps we need a different account.

I think you just need to tell the admin and they will mark your ID.
I know in the past people that were vendors and did not openly declare it and it created some grief for them.

Thanks for the update

Yupp I second that. AD delivers too much .

For me it's however limits..markets..alerts and absorptions which work per my limited knowledge. And I want more alerts of the DOM straightup. I hope AD can have more unique functionality or allows user more customization on the DOM in time to come. Considering that AD gives so much...customization off the DOM will be a killer functionality.

I did get 2 licences of AD..but activated 1. Loved the product and hence did.

Great job Steven @steevcoco good to see you here. Wish you and AD the best and success

Cheers

Chris: We have taken note of your feedback. I did think that we sent an email about the release: I would like to kindly ask if you could email us so we are sure we have your correct email in our contacts.

The comments about performance are noted: we certainly keep an eye on that, and as other posters have intimated, the performance aspect is in part under NinjaTrader's influence, since that is our host platform --- but only in so far as what we can't control there. We're also looking forward to NT 8 like most other users. We'll absolutely continue to improve the NT 7 version as long as NT also does keep it going.

Software has a whole set of challenges. It does seem to have a price that appears to be too hard to believe for one thing --- we actually hope that simple fact didn't turn too many potential customers off! Bringing up our patented method from scratch is not a trivial thing. So, while development is fraught by the concrete software engineering challenges, it has in fact been great to work inside NinjaTrader's versatile framework.

To add to our work, we had the added bad luck to get bit by outsiders trying to become something by bashing someone else; including piracy! --- And CERTAINLY that is NOONE HERE (again we'd love to find out anything about antagonistic activity in forums we can't discover easily on our own). That also took us by surprise and just made things a little more distracted while coming together --- we don't know what else anyone might have heard; but we have simply been hard at work here making a purpose-built tool for order flow traders!

Volume in the recent thick ES days has been nice to watch like that! That type of thing gives me an old-fashioned feeling (seeing so much trading all together)!

I have been testing it (version of 01 april), not sure if i use it correctly, but i can not save bid/ask data. The back fill data (via the screen) is not good enough.
I just like to save the data i have recorded.
I do like this "True Auction History" but also this feature is based on true Bid/Ask data, and after a restart of the computer all supply/res line gone.

Do i have to wait till NT8 ? Or are there other ways. (i do have the gomi recorder installed.)

Thanks
peter

Okey, i tested the software Friday, and made 2 sort of tutorials, (for myself) as the software is very difficult to understand.
(note: iam still on the free trial..... software based on 01 april 2016)

Background: Iam working on the stoxx, since 1 month. (not have been trading for 1 year) but Jigsaw had this new thing Auctionvista, and i had payed long time ago for a licence..... (did try gomi stuff at the same time) but i was to much focused on the DAX.... and now i think both Jigsaw and gomi tools can not be incorporated into the dax. (dax is to fast).
So when Jigsaw came out with this new Auction vista i thought lets try again, but i choose wisely the eurostoxx, together with volumeladdermetroadditionV2 (simple design) from the gomi toolbox.

Low and behold i can grasp it i think 555 (2 weeks looking now), but still many occasions are 50/50. Thats why iam looking for an extra edge.
does this software has it ? At this moment i dont know but it has a lot.....
(this new Auction Vista from Jigsaw also helps a lot ! big thanks @DionysusToast )

bytheway, if anyone can point me to a journal focused around footprint charts please let me know, eager to learn more.
(or do all the guys who implement footprint charts into their trading make money, and dont need to make a journal...? lol)

Nevertheless i was'n this far without all the help of @Big Mike, @gomi, @Silvester17, @Fat Tails and many others

big thanks all who read !

note: i made this on 40" screen UHD, not sure if people can read it on smaller screens...?

Hello,
Good day to all of you.
I want to ask if any of you AD customers have dificulty in contacting Steven. I did some questions a couple of days ago and bought the software yesterday via paypal and got the receipt but no email from support. Sent again an email regarding my past questions and that I had bought the software but still no answer. Do you have the same issue? Is there something wrong?

If you have any information please tell me.

Thank you

Thanks Ron!

Tried SPAM and saw that his last activity here was the 10th of April. No Luck Still. Seems really strange that after a buy it is taking almost 24h to receive any kind of information. @steevcoco still needs to activate my machine.

Thanks again fort the input!
