DOM Optimization

Support Request:

I would like to set up the fastest update interval possible for the trading DOM. I am using only a single chartbook with just a single Dom and no charts. Therefore a fast setting should not slow down my PC.

I have noticed that under Global settings>General settings, the Chart Update interval is set to 500 milliseconds by default. Is that setting for charts only or does it apply for the Dom too. If yes, should i set this to <100ms?

Many thanks

It does apply for Trading DOMs as well.

Best thing to do is to use the chart/trading DOM specific Chart Update Interval setting:

No need to change the global settings.
