Market Depth Historical Graph and WIDE!!! price ranges

DAMN!!! i heared about bookmap not long ago and SURELY want to make use of this tool. 2 days ago i finally found out what Market Depth Historical Graph actually is...AWESOME!!!!!
Its not as specialist as bookmap but it has all the essentials and does the trick...just needs tweaking.

What i miss: Today we had a decent drop in bitcoin. So the price range on the chart gets bigger. While bookmap merges several price ticks together as you zoom out, sc doesnt. The endresult is in sc the ChartDOM is unreadable and the color shaded price levels get thinner and thinner, In this case, is it possible to set a bigger tick size on the DOM and several price levels get calculated as one?

i attached to files for comparison and better understanding

Best Regards

You can use this setting to combine market depth levels:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ChartSettings.html#MarketDepthCombineIncrementInTicks

But it does not affect the Market Depth Historical Graph study but we will work on that later.

You can also increase the actual Tick Size for the entire chart. Just be aware that this can have other implications, particularly to some Drawings and Studies that are dependent on the Tick Size. Refer to the documentation here:

Is it possible for you to give us an option for the coloring before working more on the Market Depth Historical Graph? Btw., can you already give a ROUGH ETA?

Every color range always scales up from the background color. I would prefer the shading starts from the end of previous color range. If one wants to have a smooth transition from yellow to orange, then it really doesnt work that well. I use a grey background and because of that, the orange level doesnt scale from yellow into orange but rather from greyish into orange and this really doesnt help to grasp visually fast what the study is telling.

Keep it up, you guys are awesome.

We understand what you are asking for and will take it under consideration, although we cannot give any idea of a timeline.

In the meantime, one thing you can try doing to help your need is to increase the value for the Minimum Volume Intensity Percent, as this will eliminate some of the colors that are more towards the background color.

I guess what we need here is this to work automatically with the vertical scale zooming in and out.

this is the solution i was looking for!

market depth historical graph is some times too thin (hence cannot see) when the volatility increases

any eta for this?

We would expect this to be completed sometime during the next 60 days.

I don't know how Bookmap is doing this exactly but it seems that they use some logic to cluster the levels (based on the overall liquidity percentage?) so that they highlight areas instead of single price levels. It would be great if Sierra engineers take a deep look into Bookmaps implementation and build something similar. Would love to get rid of Bookmap and only use Sierra as a all-in-one solution. I just can't get used to trading from Bookmap ;-)
