  6. Auto Track The Contract window is able to automatically track the market.
    • Auto Re-centered - This will make the ladder remain static while the best bid and offer are on the screen. If either the best bid or offer is not visible (e.g due to a wide market or market movement) then the ladder will automatically shift instantly to the center of the market.
      Smooth - The market scrolls up and down to constantly center itself.
      Centered - Stays centered on the current market best bid.
      Depth - This shows the bids and offers as a list instead of on a ladder. Prices where there are no bids/offers are hidden. This can be helpful in wide or thin markets
    • Mouse Follow Ensures that the mouse remains in the row that contains a specific price. If this is enabled then resting the mouse pointer over a bid or offer price will cause the system to automatically move the mouse pointer when the market moves so that the mouse remains over the same price row. Having the mouse remain over the same price row lowers the risk of submitting an order at the incorrect price.
    • Fade Time The time taken in minutes for the Total column to fade from the Trade color to Trade Background color. The fading colors provide a sense of where the market has been and when.
    • Prop Scale The depth color bars in the Bid and Offer columns are scaled using this value. This provides a visual indication of the relative volume available in the market at different prices. Adjust this value to provide a meaningful ratio or bar width. The Bid and Offer colors will appear as a bar against their corresponding Background colors. note the button to the right of the prop scale. You can click the button to manual or change it to auto which will auto-adjust the scaling for the gradients that display or manual
    • Total Trade Volume If enabled the Total Trade Volume by Price column displays the total volume traded at each price for the current trading day.
    • Trade History If enabled the Trade History column provides a graphical display of trades as they occur in the market. Each trade will be plotted horizontally to the left or right (configurable) of the previous trade, and vertically at the price traded.
    • Max History The total number of trades to display in the History column. The maximum value allowed is 100.
    • Order Counts This will add a second column of Bids and offers that display the number of distinct orders that comprise the bids and offers.
    • Order Scale The depth color bars in the Bid Counts and Offer Counts columns are scaled using this value. This provides a visual indication of the relative volume available in the market at different prices. Adjust this value to provide a meaningful ratio or bar width. The Bid and Offer colors will appear as a bar against their corresponding Background colors. note the button to the right of the prop scale. You can click the button to manual or change it to auto which will auto-adjust the scaling for the gradients that display or manual
