The graph view visualizes the data displayed in the summary view. Each bar represents a depth level. The length (or height) of the bar represents the size of the orders at this depth level. The bars can be displayed vertically (ask bars are shown in the right part) or horizontally (ask bars are shown in the top part).

To change the graph orientation

▪ Right-click in the summary view and select Properties.

▪ On the left side of the dialog, select Market Depth > Graph View.

▪ On the right side of the dialog, select Vertical or Horizontal.

Separation of the graph into bid and ask sections

The graph view is divided into two sections: The ask section (top or right part) and the bid section (bottom or left part). The background color for each section can be set individually. You can also choose if you want the two sections to take up the same amount of space (fixed separation line), or if you want to see which side has more orders with a floating separation line.

The floating separation line is enabled by default the sections are then sized according to the accumulated size of orders on the bid or ask side. For example, if you have an accumulated bid size of 600, and an accumulated ask size of 400, the bid section will take up 60 percent of the available space in the graph view, and the ask side will take up 40 percent. The widths of the bars are then adjusted to the available space. When you see wider bars on the bid side, for example, this means that at the moment, there are more buyers in the market.
