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

    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Natural gas has been in a consistent downtrend over recent months, and Joshua Mahony expects to see this decline continue. Josh therefore favours a short position, with a stop-loss at 2630 and target of 2232. He also looks back at the recent EUR/USD, USD/JPY, aluminium, and USD/CAD trades.
