Greetings,

"Great! It would be great if your datafeed would be supported on Bookmap because I don't want to use Rithmic anymore. "
@User590016: Whats wrong with Rithmic?

@SC Support: You do seem to have missed to answer this question.

bookmap has some features Sc doesnt offer right now. the biggest difference is the smoothly zooming in and out of time. while sc supports adjusting barspace via mousewheel scrolling, bookmap's zoom will actually show more and more details and not just increasing space. you can work around the static nature of any bartype chart by varying the bar period interval but its nowhere near a smooth zoom.

On the coloring you are working. The Large Volume Trade Indicator naturally lacks the zoom/merge capability as well. Additionally bookmap offers other features. Its for sure the better heatmap...useless to deny that (not saying anybody does.)

Writing that, SC also offers one BIG advantage: SC plots all indicators on top of its heatmap. So you dont need 2 screens and you dont have to compair pricelevels of 2 different programs.

I probably will end up using booth heatmaps...which leads us back to the question in the first line of this post.

Regards
