  5. Thank you for your questions....:)
  6. In for discussion.

    DOM makes no sense to me and provides no edge after months of watching it.

    If you would be so kind as to let us know what you were looking for while watching the DOM...
  8. Well I had been told by people here that you can "identify support and resistance" from looking at the DOM. That was mainly what i was looking for.

    However looking at it for the ES and NQ for a few weeks provided nothing. It was randomly changing numbers that changed too quickly to analyze. I didn't even notice any patterns, and I'm freaking OCD about pattern recognition.

    I'd also heard you can determine trend direction. But I saw nothing. Sometimes the number goes up, and sometimes it goes down. It seemed unaffected by the amount of bid and ask offers on each side of it.

    Also it seems that when I placed orders directly from the DOM, I got really awful fills. But when I did market orders from the chart, I got good fills. (using OEC)
  9. Try watching ES on ZenFire Dom. Your eyes will be crossed after 2 hours.
