Support Request:

On the Trading DOM window, setting the customize trading dom columns on the Global Settings tab. How does the Recent Bid Volume/Recent Ask Volume work, what triggers a reset, and is it adjustable by the user or set in the program? Also, the color of the text in those columns, where can I choose and set it? Thanks

I apologize. The first link answered my question about how the DOM columns work.
But I can't find the specific choice for the text color of the Recent Bid/Recent Ask settings. I went through the list trying various buttons but nothing worked. I did uncheck the global settings first. The problem is that the colors on those two choices seem to be reversed from the norm for other Bid/Ask information. The Bid is green and the Ask is Red. All other default the opposite. Thanks

Text colors for Recent Bid/Recent Ask are using the Chart/Trade DOM Profit Loss Up/Down colors:

Instead of reversing the colors, you might consider changing your mental perspective. When the bid is hit the trade is actually an agressive sell. When the ask is hit the trade is an agressive buy. In that regard, the default colors are not the opposite of other functions.

Thanks for showing me the correct choice. I never would have thought the profit/loss choice would control that. I agree and use the bid/ask just as you say. That is why I want the bid to post as a sell color and the ask as a buy. As well, I want coloration to be consistent across the window so with your help I now have it agreeing color wise with what I want to see.

The reason for the delay is we needed to look into this. We have updated the documentation here to indicate how to set the colors for the Recent Ask/Bid Volume columns:

Recent Bid Volume/Recent Ask Volume - Left/Center/Right Aligned

Greetings SIERRA. I searched this thread and it's links, but can't seem to find the user controls on resetting. I'm looking to change the time frame when price moves away, and then comes back to that level causing the volume to reset. I.e. price is trading at say 2653.25 on the ES, trades to 2653.50 for 2 seconds, then back to 2653.25. In this example lets say volume is reset every 2 seconds and I want it to reset at 3 seconds. Is that possible? If so, would you please direct me to the information?
Thanks
