Indicator "Market Depth on Chart" on Custom Futures

Postby ducktail » 26 Jun 2012

Hi,

The indicator --- Market Depth on Chart --- indicates DOM very well on individual contract(e.g. ESU2, CLQ2). It is very useful. However, this indicator doesn't indicate DOM on Custom Futures. Please let me know how to solve this issue.

My data feed and broker is Interactive Brokers.

It's not related to the "Market Depth on Chart" indicator from what I know. Apparently the DOM PowerLanguage reserved words aren't designed to work at all on Custom Futures.

That's disappointing since InsideBid and InsideAsk work correctly on custom futures, so technically it's already possibly to connect the custom future ES behind the screens to the ESU2 contract and return these values.

Are there any plans to make the DOM PowerLanguage reserved words workable on Custom Futures?

Hello JoshM,

"Market Depth on Chart" indicator and DOM PowerLanguage reserved words are related and they were not designed to work with Custom Futures.

I was quite happy to learn that the DOM can (finally) now referenced through PowerLanguage. But now it doesn't work on Custom Futures, so I can't use it for automated trading, since after a future roll-over a Custom Future is needed to have correct historical data.

Anyway, I can complain more about it, but that won't change it. :) The feature request is here to vote for:

Would it be possible to make the DOM reserved words available not only for broker data, but for other data providers as well at the same time? That would be great as the quality of data might be better and via symbol mapping you can trade on the broker symbol then.

Thanks,
ABC

Hello ABC,

Unfortunately that is not technically possible at the moment.
