Downloaded QT to have a look. Everything looks rather small on a laptop and the fonts don't look as sharp. Don't have this issue with other charting platforms. How are you guys resolving the visual sharpness of this? Or is everyone using quantower on 32 inch monitors?

I have a 55" mon, so it is hard to go though it. the only way was to change windows interface scale to 100%

And, by the way, the QT support just ignored me about this (and not only) question.

Have been using Quantower for a couple of months. Impressed with the functionality for the price. I discovered a bug last week and the guys in Ukraine spent most of the day on Friday sorting it out for me. It's a young and ambitious enterprise and the developers who are running it are talented. They are also straight and people shouldn't worry that it's Ukraine based, in my opinion. I lived and worked there several years ago and while elements of the government are so bent they couldn't lie straight in bed, the people are great.

It's a damn sight cheaper than Bookmap and offers much the same. In fact the free version is fine if you need a plug in for your Rithmic feed, for example. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

I was testing the free version and was also very impressed. I intend to buy the lifetime edition and will subscribe dxfeedīs future data for 19 € (CME Top of Book). Itīs rather cheaper than barchart or Iq.
Currently iīm using IBīs datafeed but itīs not tick based. Do you use Market Deph? I also have the motivewave order flow edition but canīt manage itīs template structure. So confusing for me.
And you must subscribe to barchart or iq to get tick data.

Hi. I'm not familiar with Motive Wave, although I tried the demo but couldn't get on with it. Have you tried Trading View? I couldn't do without it these days. And it's cheap. But Quantower is proving its worth for my volume and depth analysis, the detailed picture, and Trading View for the bigger picture. Also TV is cloud based so doesn't hog your resources.

I have dxFeed nasdaq Total View along with Rithmic plugged into Quantower. It's running very smoothly.

Iīm also a TV subscriber but only for stocks not for future data. The reason is i canīt connect TV to IB so i would have to use QT or TWS for order entry. I prefer an all in one platform. TVīs charting is nice but i noticed some delays during very busy market times. Sometimes the charts couldnīt load immadiately. Because of this i prefer not a web based platform. The dxfeed for stocks contains only NASDAQ data but none for NYSE and AMEX. Quotemedia offers Level 1 quotes for all three exchanges for 33 $. Maybe an alternative.
Is it possible to connect dxfeed, quotemedia and IB simultaneously?

Yes, it is possible. You can also aggregate the data, create synthetic products etc. I agree about Trading View, but it's great for general charting.

Wow, that looks like a Bookmap clone. I want to remind everyone that Bookmap is a site sponsor, and they've been good to our community. I also believe they should be rewarded for having the original idea to visualize data and group data in this way with a client side chart package.

I'm trying to assemble Quantower for trading stocks using InteractiveBrokers as a broker and IQFeed as a data provider. The thing is, that if i connect only IB's market data everything works as expected, but with IQFeed I also need symbol mapping, which i tried to run automatically (without success), then I wrote a script which should help to generate proper config file, which looks right, but also does not work.

Can you please share your experience of IB usage on Quantower. Feel like I'm doing something wrong but can not get what exactly.

By the way, this script might be useful for somebody, so i made it open, see https://github.com/kvokka/quantower_mappings

Well, you could say that Bookmap cloned Jigsaw depth viewer in that case, Mike. Every good idea gets copied eventually. I agree Bookmap is a good bit of kit but most traders I've spoken to think its becoming way overpriced. And Quantower offers very good value as it does much more than Bookmap.

I don't have IB connected, but may do in the future. I would suggest contacting Alex Bogdan, you can find him on skype. He's the main developer and a very helpful chap.

How do ytou find IQ Feed, fast accurate? Do you have depth?

I'll post some screen shots of dxFeed's depth/ volume when the markets open.
