Level 2 data


Guest anders

Question

Guest anders

Hi, I'm new to level 2 data on IG, but I was expecting a bit more from it.

 

When I view LSE shares in the Web or Android platform, I see 4 lines on the buy and sell side. When I view NASDAQ and NYSE, I get just one line of data (although there is space for 4), example below.

 

  1. Is there a way to see more depth?
  2. Do I need to download level 2 dealer to get the best out of this?

Hi  thanks for the new post!

 

Level 2 data will vary differently between exchanges.

 

With the LSE, you'll be able to see market depth and volume (which is the four lines you're referring to in your post). Via the IG web platform, this is the maximum amount of information that is displayed on the deal ticket, but you're absolutely right in saying that more information would be displayed on the L2 platform. If you see the below example for GSK, you'll see an example of the standard level 2 deal ticket.

In regards to other exchanges, DMA (Direct Market Access) is limited. To use your examples of NASDAQ or NYSE, market depth is not available so will only show the best bid and offer prices and their respective volumes.

 

I hope this helps, and please get back to us if you have any other questions!

 

Thanks,

 

Rob

    • It is a consensus that Web3 wallets offer users whole control over their assets, ensure protection against unauthorized access, deliver seamless access to the growing world of blockchain services and more. However one quality that many participants are yet to tap fully is the earning opportunities they unlock. So in my exploration to access those juicy opportunities, I’ve discovered quite a few on Bitget wallet. Earned good rewards from the previous ZETA airdrop, and now in line with offering an unparalleled rewarding trading experience in Web3, Bitget Wallet has launched a massive airdrop for its ecosystem token BWB. Scheduled to last from March 18 to April 28, participants are invited to download Bitget Wallet app on their devices and claim BWB by participating in events through the app—the more tasks completed, the more points you gain. I just think that considering that 164m BWB points have already been issued over the period of 5 weeks, with one more week to go, no better time to hop on this opportunity than now especially with a welcome bonus of 50 $BWB points up for grabs!
    • this sounds like an amazing opportunity for users in the crypto world. It's important to approach futures trading competitions with caution, ensuring one's financial stability and a comprehensive understanding of the market. While the prizes are enticing, responsible trading remains the ultimate goal. Thanks for sharing such an intriguing event, I’ll definitely be taking a look at it ! 
    • As a newbie crypto trader, I dove headfirst into the world of futures trading on Bitget. Feeling overwhelmed by the charts and analysis, I discovered their copy trading platform. It was a revelation! Following the strategies of Bitget's elite traders, I learned the ropes while making real profits. Their expertise took the guesswork out of trading, allowing me to focus on understanding the market. This new Bitget Futures Elite Trader Selection Program is fantastic news. It incentivizes these top traders, giving them greater exposure, while also helping new users like myself identify proven performers. It's a win-win for everyone, and a huge step forward in making futures trading more accessible and successful for beginners. Thanks Bitget!
