Such is Pete of JS @DionysusToast. I had met him few years back when i did get JS and was part of his skype community. After that I did not really use it much. But that changed...and now i use it regularly and is part of my tool set to look at OF. On a recent interaction with him he spent quite a bit of time with me like a few hrs.
This note is a thanks to him. And for him to spend this much time after so many years....without any expectation in return.
There are a few handful like him...... and it's been great to use JS and know Pete. Product is solid for scalps or long term returns and so is the man.

I asked this question in another thread, but I thought I would ask here as well. Does anyone here who uses the Jigsaw order flow tools (such as the DOM and the Tape) use them for position/swing trading, and if so, how useful do you find them to be?
I know that DionysusToast is mainly a intraday trader/scalper, but are there any well known position traders who use these tools?

I'm one of the members/customers at Jigsaw Trading, same user name as here. Thank you for creating the tools!!
1) Do you have a version of the CSI (Cumulative Sheep Index) available for download or would I have to get that custom built? Would you consider letting someone from Futures.io build it for members? Maybe only make it available to Elite members, if you'd prefer?
2) In one of you tutorials where you talk about using CSI, you say something to the effect of "180k contracts above average a half an hour after the open is significant but 180k contracts above average a half an hour before the close is not." My question is, would it be possible to build a % version of CSI? For example, the plot would show that "CSI is 15% above average or CSI is 73% below average" etc...
It seems to me this would eliminate some of the subjective nature of determining when it's significant or less so.
3) Regarding the RTape, is it possible to reconstruct it based on time stamp (1 second granularity)? For example, all contracts bought at the same price & time would show as 1 trade. I frequently see the RTape plot multiple entries for the same price & time. Personally I don't care if it is actually 1 trade or not. For the purposes of analysis, I'd prefer to have it this way.
It is not at all uncommon for prints at the same price & time to add up to a block trade based on my threshold but it doesn't register as a block because it's split among different trades. This is one example of how I believe this method can be an improvement.
In your opinion, would this method be more or less effective than the the CME or Fuzzy reconstruction methods available now? Either way, please consider adding it as a 3rd method of reconstructing the RTape.
4) I've tried to register on the jigsaw blog and cannot. I'm required to answer a question to prove I'm not a bot. The problem is, there's no question there. Please let me know what I'm doing wrong.
I thank you sir for all the fine work you're doing for traders and your answers to my questions, Johnnymustard

1. The CSI indicator is available as a download for Ninjatrader in the Jigsaw members's area, ES when to enter section, part 15 on platform setup.
3. How about looking at current trades on the DOM. The default is that it will show all the trades at that price untill price moves away for more than 2.5 seconds. Good for easily seeing unusually large size quickly accumulating at a price.

Peter calls this by two diff names. This is where the confusion is coming in. Sometimes CSI, Cumulative Sheep Index (in video I mistaking say cumulative sheep indicator) but this is more tongue in cheek. Other times JTRelativeVolume.
