    Very good, useful and well done study.
    For Orderflow Trading in Sierra Chart this is a must have. Also, really nice developer that helps with problems and requests.

    Great product.

    Allows you to see reconstructed tape on the chart without having to constantly keep an eye on the tape. This allows the tape to be use din conjunciton with other order flow information on the chart ie. absorbtion, effort no result etc.

    I watched the below Youtube video (from someone who is unrelated to the seller) and this product allowed me to set-up the recon. tape as described in this video except that it plots on a chart instead of the tape. It has really helped with visualization.


    I monitored the recond Trade Chart in relation to the tape and the numbers all agreed.

    Greta product – highly recommended for those who find the tape “too fast” and like to see that tape on the chart.
