View Full Version : Market replay speed - can you slow it down to less than 1x
Can you slow down market replay so that it is slower than normal speed?
I often use market replay at 500x speed but sometimes I want to break down a certain time to really see what is happening tick by tick. I didn't know if there was any way to have it play it slower than 1x speed. Right now I just watch it multiple times.

Unfortunately this is not supported. You cannot have it play slower than 1X.
I will forward your inquiry to our development team and ask them if they can add this to the list of future considerations for the software.
Thanks, I am dissecting. Right now I just hit play and as soon as time and sales move i press pause. What I am analyzing is pretty volatile and it moves fast. No doubt there is computer trading going on. It is too fast for a human to do what I am seeing. 1 to 3 seconds is all you have. 3 seconds is pretty late to the party and possibly too late.
The slower than 1x should be doable as it is reverse play faster should maybe just be able to multiply the delay speed by a different number. Tell development to consider a thumb slider (as long as I am as wishing) "0" being pause and negative being x times slower and positive x times faster as it is today. Easy interface, easier programming.
Greatly appreciated, hopefully Ray will agree.
Can a user add a signature file to his/her profile on this forum? I don't see where i can add one.

I will forward your suggestion of a thumb slider as well. Thank you for the feedback.
You can add a signature under 'User CP'-->Settings & Options-->Edit Signature.
I don't have that option. I guess we plebes don't get it.
