1. On one of the servers for the Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed, we have released 200 levels of market depth data for CBOT symbols.

If you are using version 1894 of Sierra Chart or earlier you are going to automatically see 200 levels.

If you do not see the 200 levels for CBOT symbols, then reconnect to the data feed:

2. Update to version 1895 to control the number of market depth levels that are subscribed to. The setting is Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings >> SC Server Settings >> Max Depth Levels. After changing this setting, reconnect to the data feed:

https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/FileMenu.html#ProcedureToReconnect

3. If you notice any market depth issues with CBOT symbols, reconnect to the data feed:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/FileMenu.html#ProcedureToReconnect

We would not expect there to be a problem though unless you are changing the number of levels without reconnecting.

4. If your Internet connection cannot handle the extended market depth data, you need to update to prerelease 1895:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/SoftwareDownload.php#FastUpdate

And then reduce the Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service Settings >> SC Server Settings >> Max Depth Levels setting to 50 or less or whatever you require. After changing this setting, reconnect to the data feed:

5. One nice feature about this extended depth is now there is the ability to control the number of market depth levels received by Sierra Chart anywhere all the way down to a single level.
