Thanks very much for your help, below is the &#8216;specs&#8217; I would like someone to help me code the program.
I am using IB (interactive brokers) for trading and IB feeds for charting. I am enquiring a programmer to help me to setup some charts for my own trading.
Since I have limited programming knowledge, I would like someone to write the program for me and also annotate the code extensive enough for me to understand.
I would like to have a graphical presentation of the DOM (depth of market) in a dynamic basis:
Below is a screen shot of the market depth of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJ), it gives you some idea of how I would like the graph to look like. As you see in the picture, the centre of the pic, there are a column of numbers (the price). You also see 5 numbers each side of the price, (the market depth) . The green horizontal line on the left hand side of the page is the ask line, the pick line is the bid line, and the blue line is the last price. A blue trail is how the DJ has been travel in the last 10 minutes.
1. I would like to have a small thumbnail graph for every price level of the DOM. (eg. There are 5 level of bid and ask, a total of 10 graphs)
2. On top of that, as the price level changes, additional graph for each new price level appears. So as the prices moves, new graphs are plotted on the new level, this means there will be lots of thumbnails charts on the screen, all aligned to the same time axis.
3. I would also like to know the changes of the DOM size of every price level, using a graphical presentation.
I need to be able to show the ratio of Bid and Ask on a graphical representation, along with their circumlative bid and ask size.
I can turn on/off the delta change of the bid and ask size with a button.
Highlight the bid and ask size on large numbers.
Autoscroll and recentre the graphs with the prices move out of the screen.
4. Further enhancement in the future as to alarm with DOM size reach a certain size and the change of DOM size reach a certain size.
I have no preference as to what software or programming language used. Please give me a suggested timeframe to finish the above project and quote for the price for it. and also tell me what else you need me to provide to smoothen your work.
PS. The API for the program can be found on this address :

then click on the proprietary API tab on the page.
Please tell me which part don&#8217;t you understand, I will explain it further
