Hi,
I'm trying to start using Order Heatmap but it does not produce this information.
Does it work with motive wave ?

May be TD Ameritrade data plan upgradation is required. IN CME futures the order heat map works

are you trying to use it to trade equities or futures? i think with futures you will need to use a data provider that gives you tick data like cqg-rithmic etc.

I'm trying to find a way to get the cheapest option to try out the order flow in moti.
Which one works the best for us equities and futures and how to add it ?

for equities data you can use tos & link it, as far as futures data i think you can get a free trial from cqg or rithmic for like 2 weeks to try it out before you decide to purchase or not. But after you will have to pay for futures data, especially for tick data which is what i think you should use imo. Now i think if you look for free futures data it will not be as good as what i mentioned & your trades may potentially suffer from it as well. good luck

Can I use TD amertrade account for L2 and MarketDept too for equities or futures or that is not available ?
I'm using Mac, so I'm not sure if I will be able to configure rithmic bridge ? Can the feed be also supplied directly from cqg or I need local app like for ritmic ?

I have made a connection to TDA. I went on TDA and subscribed to L2 and market depth.
When I added Order Heatmap and nothing is show up at all.
Do I need to configure anything special ?
