Default DOM levels

Why are there only 5 levels of depth in the superDOM? Another program I have tried (sierra chart) has 10 on each side. Is this a limitation within NT? On slower markets it makes no difference, like ES, but on fast moving markets it would be nice (like oil).

Hi JoshDance,

Thank you for your post.

The SuperDOM can display a sixth level of cumulative depth which is accessible if you right-click on the SuperDOM and then select Properties and set the Show Cumulative Depth to True.

Additionally, if there are more than 5 levels worth of data available through your provider you can go to File > New > Level II and view more levels of Market Depth as the SuperDOM will only show the 5 levels, plus a cumulative level.

Ryan,

Thanks for the reply. I can see the 10 levels of depth in the level 2 window. Is there any reason in particular you do not allow the option to show these levels in the DOM?

This is unfortunately just a current limitation - it's on our list for future consideration to enhance the DOM to show the 10 best bid / ask levels as well.

Thank you. Sometimes here you guys say things like "we will consider adding this..." etc., I would like to strongly encourage you to apply this change to the software. It seems like it would be pretty much the easiest mod you could make; I don't know your code obviously, but it would seem only a few variables changed to 10 would do the trick.

Default 10 Levels

YES! Adding 10 levels to the book would be a GREAT Addition!!!

Just want to say, I LOVE the software, and since I'm trading fast contracts like oil, dax etc., having a 10 deep book would be absolutely fantastic.

Hopefully you guys can do it! If it is coming up in a further edition, do any of you know when it should be expected?

Julian

Hi,

We currently have no plans of expanding to 10 Levels. It is however on the list but can't provide any insight of when and if it will be added.

Hello, just my opinion, i'm looking to change software because NT haven't 10 levels in the DOM, for the scalper it's just impossible, why don't you change this like X_trader or another platforms. Is it so complicate to change this part of code in the DOM ? (it's a real question i don't know if it's easy but you think it's not a priority or if it's complicate).
Thanks

Grignouf,

The DOM code is extremely sensitive and touching it in one way runs significant risk in breaking it in another. That being said, rest assured this item is on our feedback list and will be reviewed to see what can/cannot be done once development gets to the DOM enhancement phase of development. Unfortunately I cannot give you any ETA on when that might be.

Hello,

Development is still in process for our next major release of the platform. With that said any changes in this area would be for our next major release of the software. Which I would like to correctly set the expectation that it will be some time before we release. There is no release date or expected release date at this time.

-Brett

Default data level on static superdome

I noticed that in the static Superdome. when the trend of prices falls or rises faster, the data move to the end of the book until they disappear, despite the atuto center. Could you advise me how to set up?Thanks
