Training: Liquidity – Order Book & Market Depth (information)

Analyse market depth in the central order book to identify asset liquidity, indicating the level of market activity.
This simulation mimics the fundamentals of the trading environment and market activity. Focus is only on relevant aspects so that you cannot be distracted by (currently) irrelevant aspects. The modular setup of this simulation allows therefore for gradually grasping one concept or process after another, making it very suitable for non-traders. Actually, it is suitable for all professionals with a role in (or relating to) the wholesale commodity or energy markets. It is very suitable for non-traders as terminology is covered on the go, thereby intuitively embedding concepts and processes.

Capacity

You act in the role of a market participant.
You act in the capacity of aggressor.

Tasks

Beyond the commercially most attractive orders, identify the next best bids and the next best offers in the market. This way, you’ll see market depth. For this matter, you need to unfold the product row (click on the “+” in front of the relevant product).

Objective

The aim of this simulation is to get an understanding of the order book and to master the concept of market depth.
