Time and Sales column can be easily configured to be displayed in a single window as a complement to other windows.

1st to 5th column #

Sets cumulative Tick Direction signs. Cumulative Tick Directions allows you to see the overall tick direction. In the example below we ticked down for the price 3080.25 to 3080 (downtick “-”) we then ticked further down without ticking up to the price 3079.75 (downtick, downtick “–“). On the right side we see a not Cumulative Direction and thus it doesn’t consider the previous downtick from 3080.25 to 3080 and displays only “-” for the 3080 to 3079.75 downtick.
