In order to use Bookmap, you will need an active license key. If you do not already have a Bookmap license key, you can register for a free two-week trial here. When registering, you will need to ensure that you select Rithmic under Futures Connectivity / Data so that Rithmic data will be enabled for your license key. Upon registration, you will receive a username and password to login to your Bookmap portal where you can download the platform.
- Once the platform is downloaded, enter your license key in the Activation window. You are now ready to connect your TopstepTrader account to Bookmap.
On the Bookmap run options screen, select Live data/Trading simulated by Bookmap. If you would like to use Bookmap’s Replay functionality, select Record Live data. This will record your session's data into a proprietary formatted file which you can later replay using the Replay run mode.
Enter your TopstepTrader account credentials:
- User Name: (found in Account Information email)
- Password: (found in Account Information email)
- System: TopstepTrader

- Once you click 'LOGON' you will be taken to a blank workspace where you can add your instruments.
