Bookmap Connection Instructions

  1. To use Bookmap, you will need an active license key. If you do not already have a Bookmap license key, you can purchase a license key here. Upon registration, you will receive a username and password to log in to your Bookmap portal where you can download the platform.

  2. Once the platform is downloaded, enter your license key in the Activation window. You are now ready to connect your Topstep® account to Bookmap.

  3. On the Bookmap run options screen, select External data / Trading through your brokerage account (real or simulated). 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.


  4. The platform will load into a blank workspace that will require you to set up the connection. Click on the Connections tab in the top left and Configure.
