Yes, configure the connection accordingly selecting the “demo” checkbox where applicable to trade in a risk-free, simulated environment. You can configure multiple connections to the same exchange with different names (e.g. BitMEX Data, BitMEX Demo, BitMEX Real), and choose which to connect to. Use the 3rd mode in the launching pad for the Demo and Real.
You can specify a larger tick (lower price granularity) than provided by the exchange. Bookmap will consolidate multiple price levels into one accordingly. You can also configure maximum granularity of the displayed sizes.
The tick size (or pips) defines the maximum price granularity. In digital currencies tick can be very small, for instance, a pips of Bitcoin is 1 satoshi which is just 0.00000001 BTC. Typically, exchanges set lower price granularity by using larger pips. Bookmap offers to specify even larger pips, consolidating multiple price levels into one accordingly. A recommended value is 0.01-0.1% of the current price. For instance, if the price of BTC_USD is $10,000, choose a pips between 1 and 10.
Technically it’s possible, similarly as Bookmap consolidates market data from multiple US stocks exchanges. But prices of digital currencies may be very different on different exchanges. Such consolidation would lead to overlapping (crosses) between Bid and Ask order books. If you wish to suggest a group of exchanges with very similar prices, send us an email.
A useful alternative is the Bookmap Correlation Tracker Add-on which allows the display of real-time prices of other instruments as an indicator on the chart. Bookmap Digital+is required for access to this Add-on.
Bookmap will attempt to reconnect each time you get disconnected. If that happens frequently, check your internet speed and stability. With low internet speed or with poor WiFi router, it’s recommended to connect your computer to the router with a cable. If your internet is fast and stable, disconnections may be caused by temporary problems within the exchange which last minutes or hours. If this is not the case, please report the problem to Bookmap Support.
