31.08.23: CScalp Beta: Increased Order Books’ Depth and Color Scheme Updates

On August 31, 2023, we released a CScalp beta featuring the increased order book depth for Binance and dYdX, as well as updates to the color scheme settings.

Join the discussion of the CScalp release on our Discord server! We look forward to receiving your feedback and suggestions.

Order Book Depth

We have introduced a feature that allows users to lift restrictions on the order book depth for connections to Binance and dYdX. Users can now toggle the depth limitation on or off according to their preferences. You can remove or activate the limitation here:

For other connections, the order book depth is limited by the exchange's API capabilities.
Attention! Removing limitations on order book depth can significantly impact your computer's performance and Internet traffic load. We advise evaluating your computer's “behavior” and Internet connection before trading without restrictions.

Color Schemes

We have integrated several user-customizable color schemes into CScalp:

Now it is possible to change both text and shape colors on the chart. Additionally, we have modified the application of color parameters – they are applied immediately after selection.

Other Changes

We have increased the number of linking groups to 20. We have also improved level synchronization. Now, when placing a horizontal ray on one chart, the same ray is also placed on other charts instead of a line.

Furthermore, we have introduced the option to select the order book rendering frequency: 10 FPS, 24 FPS, and 60 FPS. Let's illustrate the purpose of this feature with an example.
Assume that information in the order book is updated every 100 ms. Rendering occurs at 99 ms, just before new data arrives.
At 24 FPS, the order book will render every 140 ms – 40 ms after the new information arrives.
At 60 FPS, the order book will render every 114 ms – 14 ms after new data arrives.
Higher FPS results in quicker rendering of fresh order book data. This can be especially noticeable in volatile markets. However, when selecting the FPS setting, it's essential to consider your computer's capabilities and the quality of your Internet connection.

Bug fixes

We have addressed the following issues:
  • Resolved the terminal crash that occurred while working with chart shapes.
  • Fixed the bug affecting the functionality of the chart ruler.
  • Corrected errors related to balance and positions on Binance connections.
  • Addressed the display issue concerning financial results in a simplified mode.
  • Rectified the graph-related error occurring at the initiation of trading on the Moscow Exchange.
  • Fixed the situation in which editing colors inadvertently applied the slider parameters that were positioned under the cursor.

How to Participate in CScalp Beta Testing

We invite traders to take part in the testing! If you already have the CScalp beta installed, please update it. You can download the beta version here. For more detailed information on becoming a beta tester, refer to this article.
Please be aware that the CScalp beta has a separate installer. The beta version and the release version installed on the same PC do not interfere with each other:
  • The beta is installed in a separate Program Files folder.
  • The beta has its own category in the Start menu and the "Install/Uninstall Programs" window.
  • The beta has its own desktop shortcut (FSR Launcher beta).
Before installing the beta version, make sure that all applications are closed.
Both the beta and release versions of CScalp utilize the same license key. You can restore or obtain your license key on the CScalp website or through the CScalp Telegram bot. It is not possible to run both versions of CScalp simultaneously on the same PC.
