    Looks pretty snazzy, but Bookmap 2.0 will have
    ☼ options, and
    ☼ allow for cross-market visualization (i.e., underlying+future; underlying+options)

    Actually, market data is simply orders (buy/sell, size, price), processed by similarly simple matching engine. Complex things may emerge from very simple rules, including complex biology as you mentioned. Bookmap's goal is to visualize as close as possible the underlying process of order flow (including the flow of passive limit orders) but in a way that leverages our ability to spot complex patterns visually. It's the same ability that makes captchas useful -- bots still can't solve them better than humans. Here is an example of an effective technique of an HFT to be unnoticeable by other HFT's, but it's easy to spot visually.


    There are more examples on my twitter. Trading is a real-time interactive game with a simple set of available to traders actions: Send an order, Modify, Cancel. Bookmap's goal is to make it easier to observe actions of other "players" before making your own move.

    Looked around your website. Wow, that's a lot of complex software+api. Requires lots of expensive market data. I am curious who is your target customer?

    Hi qlai,

    Bookmap is free for trading on crypto exchanges GDAX, BitMEX, Bitfinex (mainly because it connects directly and their market data is free of charge).

    Bookmap costs $99/month for trading futures (e.g. at CME) or US stocks (the stocks data is charged separately, but it costs less than competitors', and has institutional level of quality). If you use Bookmap only for visualization, it costs $49/month. Additional discounts apply on annual subscription. Market data of futures is provided for free by brokers.

    So, it costs 1-2 points of ES futures contract movement. We truly believe that Bookmap gives more value for traders during a month than 1-2 points of ES.

    The API is free of charge and we believe it's the best in the industry. Here are API key features:
    • Receive trades as Times & Sales with ability to "reconstruct" the original size of the aggressive order
    • Receive full market depth as Market-by-price (MBP) or Market-by-order (MBO)
    • Unique: Receive recent history of market depth data (in progress)
    • Draw indicators on chart or indicators panel with unlimited resolution
    • Implement automatic trading strategies
    • Create custom settings panel
    • Implement custom windows and widgets (detached from Bookmap chart)
    • Simple, fast, and transparent
    • Free access to API for all Bookmap users
    • Use any Java supporting IDE for development
    • Offer your custom module on marketplace (in progress) for other traders
    Here is the entire code of an add-on that receives trades and full market depth and simply manages the order book.

    I hope the pricing model makes more sense now.
