There are a couple of options.

First, if you just want to see the flash of color for the particular trade type when that trade occurs, then we recommend using the Last Size column. You would change the coloring for the Bid/Ask background coloring through the following two Graphics Settings:
- Chart DOM Cumulative Last Size Background Bid Trade
- Chart DOM Cumulative Last Size Background Ask Trade

If you want to see the Bid and Ask separate from each other, then we would recommend using the Recent Bid Volume and Recent Ask Volume columns.
You would want to set the option for Trade >> Chart DOM Settings >> Other >> Reset Recent Bid/Ask Volume on Bid/Ask Change to Yes - which will remove the coloring when there is not a trade, but the Bid/Ask change values. The coloring for these backgrounds is the following:
- Chart DOM Last Traded Recent Bid Volume Background
- Chart DOM Last Traded Recent Ask Volume Background

Note that you will need to Enable these options for the Chart DOM in order to get them to show in the DOM by selecting the Enable option.

Also refer to the following:
Global Trade Settings Windows: Reset Recent Bid/Ask Volume on Bid/Ask Change (Global Settings >> Chart DOM Settings >> Other >> Other Settings)
