The site allows you to set a start and end color and then plots the colors in between. Set 6 mid points and you'll get 8 colors corresponding to the 8 we have.

 

Write Data - By default this is off. When you open the Auction Vista Chart it will be set on. If set on, we will write historical depth and Order Flow information to files in your (My) Documents\Jigsaw Trading\DepthHistory folder. These files are used to keep historical depth information. One file will be written per day, per instrument, per platform. If you switch this off, then no history will be written to the file and next time you open the Auction Vista Chart, you will not see any history for the period it was set off.
