Disclaimer: This third-party trading platform demo is designed as an introduction to the platform and its functionality. It is not intended to mimic trading results in a live trading environment. In an actual live trading environment, commissions and fees would be applied at the close of every business day, and an account statement would be generated. Daily statements and the associated fees are not applied within the demo environment and as such, those fees, which may have a material impact on your account, are not reflected in final profit and loss calculations within this demo. Other factors such as latency fill price and execution times may also differ from live trading results. It is not intended for this demo to be an accurate representation of actual profits or losses that may occur in a live trading environment. These 3rd party platforms generally supply the user with real-time market data, however that can change at any time and without notice. This data should not be considered an adequate approximation of the trading results or experience that may occur in a live-trading environment.

Background – the problem facing today’s traders

FInancial markets lack transparency. Traders do not have a way to analyze, in real time or offline, the activity taking place in the order book and order flow. Traders are essentially trading the market blindfolded. All the current charting tools provide filtered or aggregated perspective of the market action and do not allow traders to get a real insight into actual supply and demand. Traders are left shortsighted as far as real time price action is concerned.

Market depth is being updated in real time and it changes constantly throughout the trading session. On an instrument such as the E-mini S&P 500 futures(ES), which trades under extremely high volume, market depth updates many times each second, which makes it virtually impossible to follow for the naked eye. We developed Bookmap xRay to address these inherent problems.

What is Bookmap?

Bookmap is an innovative platform that provides clearer transparency into the market. At the core of Bookmap is the Order-Book Heat-Map that visualizes market depth dynamics and evolution over time. The heat map delivers the real time non-aggregated, non-filtered market data and helps you to instantaneously observe market depth dynamics and the flow of liquidity. By doing so, Bookmap helps you gain better insight into short term price action.

Bookmap allows traders to connect directly to today’s most popular data and execution solutions including CQG, Rithmic, and Trading Technologies

Key features include:

- Historical visualization of order book (depth of market) and order flow.

- Ability to manipulate the chart, including zooming into nanosecond time periods.

- Order and market data recording.

- Replay in offline mode that enables you to view all of your orders and also functions as a trading simulator.

- Advanced studies & analytic tools.

- Broad trading functionality including super fast off-the-chart one-click trading.


How does it work?

Bookmap enables you to watch not only the current snapshot of the DOM but also the historical changes. The heat map records and visualizes every change in the order book by displaying it on a scale of gray shade. The brighter shades mark price levels with larger number of resting paper while darker shades mark areas of lower liquidity.


How is it different from any other charting platform out there?

You will not find the classical bars and candles or other forms of aggregated data. You will not see the chart fixed frequency shifts when a new bar is added. Instead, you will see an HD movie that visualizes gigabytes of non-aggregated market data (both trades and market depth).

Bookmap is fine tuned for human visual perception allowing traders to digest huge amounts of information to unveil the real auction taking place in the market. The only limitation of data precision is the resolution of your monitor.

What information does Bookmap present that was previously lost?

The most common tool to place a trade is a regular DOM. When you look at a regular DOM, you can see the size at each price level, however, it is very hard to see the changes and you cannot tell when these limit orders are placed in the market. With Bookmap you can see it all. This enables you to:

See the real liquidity levels (real support and real resistance)

Confirm your Macro buy / sell decisions with the Micro behavior in the order ​book

Identify that big players stepping in.

What is the easiest way to add BookMap to your existing trading style or strategy?

The historical depth of market information is useful to traders because it shows not only where price is now, but where it is likely to be in the near short term future.

Our clients use Bookmap because:

– It provides market information. All of it, unfiltered and non-aggregated.

– It tells the story behind that information.

- It helps to achieve the goal of better trading performance both in real time trading and by debriefing recorded trading sessions.

– It is beautiful.

– It educates about market data dynamic and microstructure, and about dominant market participants.

The trading results on the demo accounts do not include commissions, exchange fees and NFA fees. You should also consider that certain fills you would get on a "demo" account might not reflect the same result on a live market action. Demo accounts use hypothetical money and don’t have the emotional impacts of real money. This demo is designed as an introduction to using the platform; it is not intended to mimic trading results in a live trading environment.
