Hi @Bookmap Bruce, welcome to the community and thank you for being a site sponsor.

We look forward to you answering questions from the community, I believe there is a great deal of interest in Order Flow products at this time.

Soon, Bookmap will be presenting a webinar and we will post the details/date of that event here in this webinar shortly.

In the meantime, if anyone has questions for Bookmap, please feel free to post them here.

Mike

Can I use my Sierra Charts data feed with Bookmap or would I have to purchase separate data?

Hi Jones1020

Currently Sierra Charts Data is not supported by Bookmap so you will need to subscribe to the data separately.

The list of supported market data providers is available here:
https://bookmap.com/wiki/Main_Page

Also, note that you can develop such adapter via Bookmap API. You can read more about it here: https://bookmap.com/wiki/Bookmap_API

Hi Bruce, I've been considering Bookmap for a few weeks now, and after attending the webinar this week, have decided to give it a go. I would like to begin by running Bookmap alongside the TWS charts I presently use from Interactive Brokers.
Although I dabble in some spreads and options trading, I mainly intraday and swing trade NYMEX Natural Gas and Crude Oil futures with IB on a MacBook Pro.

A few questions...
1. Can Bookmap run on a Mac using the IB data feed?
2. Will Bookmap run concurrently with TWS charts using a single IB data feed?
3. If the answer to question 2 is ‘yes’, would I have the option to execute trades from either Bookmap or TWS?
4. Could a third-party data feed be used to trade with Bookmap, while keeping IB as the broker, in order to achieve deeper and more accurate book data than what IB currently provides?

Thanks

Hello: I watched the webby and it looks very interesting. Is there a market replay capability so that one could study the platform in action? I use market replay practically every day to go over my trades or just to observe how the market traded on a particular day. Thanks

Is there a market replay capability .....

Not Bruce, but I know Bookmap has replay.
Here's a video from a couple of years explaining the basic functionality then. I think the newer program versions may allow a download of data rather than needing sessions to have been recorded first before replaying that file.

You do not win as a trader, you just get to play again the next day. If that game doesn’t appeal to you then you should not trade. Gary Norden
