City Execution Adds Market Depth Viewer to Eikon

OptionsCity’s City Execution, recently featured in "3 Great New Eikon Apps in 2017" by Thomson Reuters, has added a market depth viewer to their futures trading platform. The market depth viewer had been requested by many Eikon customers for a more complete view of futures markets. The market depth view provides a vertical view of the current order book on a single price scale. Bids are shown in the blue column, and asks are shown in the red column. As a trade is executed, the trade size is indicated alongside the price on the ladder. Market depth is useful for identifying future support and resistance levels as traders can determine if there are more sell orders in the market than buy orders or vice versa.
