L2 market depth nasdaq totaview


JackSparrow

Question

Hi there. I trade US shares on the IG platform (not ideal I know, unless people have other suggestions for trading US shares without a US bank account).

I have L2 dealer and have subscribed to L2 info.

I'm aware even with this we don't get full market depth, probably why level 2 info is only $2.

Is it possible at all to pay the extra and get Nasdaq Total View which has the full market depth info?

Hi, this has come up before and the response from IG was that the costs were so high they did not see that there would be any demand.

doesn't make much sense though. they charge $15usd each trade, or $30usd for each buy sell and won't offer a $40usd p/m subscription?

another line they told me when the account was first setup was that there are heaps of 'dark' trades on the US exchanges so the market depth would cause more grief than anything.

cfd's wouldn't matter but with share trading when you're using depth along with candle formation it does help, at least volume on buy sell side.

L2 given free by default in australia with commsec. 

I know some US traders who are paying $300 a day for connection, commissions and exchange fees. IG didn't actually say what the fees would be if they did offer them so I don't really know.

normal trading commission shouldn't be part of it though.

exchange fees would be about 50usd, news bezinga 30usd, broker, trading software $400usd p/m. let's say $1000 usd p/m for the most extravagent package ex broker commissions would be about $30 p/d. They're trading 40 times a day??

not 40 times a day but I do know they're not lying and I do know you get what you pay for  so good luck.

sorry wasn't saying you're lying, just meant they probably included the commissions in that figure which would sound about right. 

there just seems to be lots of safe guards in regards to information and not providing too much to new retail traders. probably a good thing tbh. 

it's a shame the brokerage costs are so high in australia compared with the us.

hmmm yes i can probably see IG's perspective on why not to bother with L2 depth. i'm looking at theTSLA depth and time sales (yes, yes, TSLA), the things is being played like no tomorrow. pretty pointless for retail traders. nanosecond trades at $70k a pop.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I'm using Nasdaq Bookviewer. Apparently there is a pro version, of that, I'm not sure what the difference is, but I have the 'non pro' version which is $15/month for Nasdaq L2, worth every penny imo.

If your doing more than several trades a day its a given having order depth. It's true what the other guy said about dark pools, but it give you an idea when there is real volume and it's shape. It's not the be and end all but I recommend it.

This provokes a question though, what is nasdaq totalview like? Is that the same or equivalent to nasdaq bookviewer? I've honestly no idea but looking at the PDF it look similar. If anyone knows or has any more detail that'd be great.

Best,
Adam

Is the bookviewer subscription any good? From what I know they should be kinda similar. Nasdaq Full View gives a better depth but for someone who is not trading huge positions from what I saw they shoulf be quite equal. 

To answer your question Total View offers every single offer that exists and lists it for you to see...time and sales also. With totalview you will never be out of touch so to say...as long as you keep your eyes on the monitors:))

Bit late to the party but currently looking for a L2 provider that covers the NASDAQ, from here in the UK.

NASDAQ Bookviewer or Total View?

I wouldn't bother to be honest. There are so many 'dark trades' on the larger stocks and exchanges and everything is in 100 blocks so it's pretty much impossible to gauge anything much of use. On the smaller stocks maybe but even with the penny stocks there are always some shadowy plays.

    • Thank you for the reply. This may not be the case, the market clearly says it is closed when I try to place a trade. Effectively meaning I am unable to trade outside of the hours specified!
    • Apple’s recent stock weakness marks a divergence with other members of the Magnificent 7 and the broader Nasdaq 100. Source: Bloomberg   Indices Shares Apple Inc. Artificial intelligence Price iPhone Written by: Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London   Publication date: Friday 01 March 2024 13:26 AI Efforts in Question Apple's stock fell below $180 on Thursday for the first time since early-November, underperforming the broader market. While the S&P 500 and tech-heavy Nasdaq indices posted solid gains, Apple shares slipped around 1%. Source: Google Finance The decline comes as doubts loom about Apple's artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives. Rivals like Microsoft are delivering strong earnings growth tied to burgeoning AI technology. This was highlighted by Tuesday's report that Apple is discontinuing its decade-long electric vehicle project. Back in 2017, Apple CEO Tim Cook called the autonomous car endeavour the "mother of all AI projects." Stock Underperforms Broader Market So far in 2024, Apple shares have dropped 3%, trailing the S&P 500's 7% gain and the Nasdaq's 9% climb. Despite its long-term market-beating returns, Apple has recently lagged the S&P 500 on 6-month, 1-year, and 2-year timeframes, according to FactSet data. After spending most of 2021 to 2023 as the world's most valuable public company by market capitalization, Apple surrendered that crown to Microsoft in January. Microsoft's sales and profit growth have far outpaced Apple's, which posted negative growth in its 2022 fiscal year ending last September. AI Investment Hints but Details Lacking At Wednesday's shareholder meeting, Cook suggested Apple is "investing significantly" in generative AI. He said more specifics will be announced later this year. UBS analyst David Vogt predicts Apple's first major AI launch will come in June at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. iPhone Sales Weakness Looms In addition to AI uncertainties, expectations for weak iPhone sales growth continue to weigh on Apple. iPhones accounted for 58% of Apple's total revenue last quarter. Some See Positives in Car Project Halt Some analysts see a silver lining in the halt of Apple's electric car plans. It enables the company to refocus AI talent on nearer-term products with greater market potential. To Morgan Stanley, it also shows Apple's "cost discipline." Apple analyst rating LSEG (formerly known as Refinitiv) data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‘buy’ for Apple with 10 strong buy, 17 buy, 13 hold and 2 sell – and a mean of estimates suggesting a long-term price target of $201.41 for the share, roughly 16% higher than the current price (as of 1 March 2024). Source: LSEG Technical outlook on the Apple share price The Apple share price continues to precariously weigh on its $180.30 to $179.25 support zone which consists of the January-to-February lows. A fall through and daily chart close below this area looks increasingly likely and would lead to levels being reached which were last traded in early-November with the 3 November low at $176.65 representing the first downside target. Apple Daily Candlestick Chart Source: TradingView Further down sits the $174.49 August low below which key support can be spotted between the September and October lows at $167.62 to $165.67. Were the $180.30 to $179.25 support zone to hold, though, a rise and daily chart close above last week’s high at $185.04 would need to occur, for a recovery off the support area to gain traction. In this scenario the Apple share price would trade back above its 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $183.90 and target the 55-day SMA at $188.50. This will continue to favour a fall through support at $179.25 to take place as long as the Apple share price continues to trade below last week’s high at $185.04.     This information has been prepared by IG, a trading name of IG Markets Limited.
