The Depth Finder Widget helps traders track the current book depth for all their placed orders. Traders can use the widget to see what their initial position was in the book, see how much progress they have made in the queue and track where they are currently placed.
Using market data and order info the widget can provide a real-time estimate of the queue position of one’s orders and can help anyone manually working orders in a FIFO market. Please note that due to limitations in exchange data we cannot account for other orders being canceled.
Note that currently this widget is not meant to replace the book depth viewer and order viewer, but instead work hand-in-hand with them to view and track orders. Cancelling and modifications to orders still need to be done via the orders viewer.
