Version - 2nd November, 2022


More chart timeframes, with longer lookback periods - This should be combined with much faster, more responsive charts using less CPU per chart. We are now leaning more on the data providers to give us the appropriate timeframe. So if you request a 526 tick chart, that's what we ask the data provider to give us - removing the load to consolidate 1 tick data from the platform side. Where available we have included tick charts and daily charts as well as removing any restrictions on the lookback period.

Tick size compression - that (for example), will allow you to change NQ Futures from a tick size of .25 to a tick size of 1.00 with the "missing" volumes at the "hidden" levels, consolidated at the new compressed level. There'll be a video for this in case it's not quite clear. Compressing an instrument that is wildly volatile, effectively stabilizes it, making it easier to read without bringing in additional risk. You  CAN trade from a compressed or uncompressed D&S. More here:
