Sierra Chart Engineering: I think a missing feature is an option to set a max shading quantity. For example, if a very large bid/ask is printed it can reduce the shading of the other orders to an effectively invisible level. The remedy would be to provide an input that would set max shading intensity to x contracts.
Crude oil maxes out usually at around ~250 lots on the bid/ask.
An order of 1000 lots appears, rendering all of the other levels very hard to see for the duration that this particular order remains visible on the chart.
Completely agree and I have been hoping this comes along as well. Often times, these huge orders are just spoofing so the order flashes very quickly and is gone, but now, as you say, all the other levels look less important because of this little blip.
