Tick Cluster

All calculations are similar to those we use in our Smart Tape, but info gets displayed in the form of clusters. Such an innovative approach in displaying data allows you to easily perceive incoming information. If on the tape you should peer at the figures to determine price of the order, here everything you can see on the chart.


Another advantage is the ability to view market orders, which were performed at multiple prices (due to slippage).


Also on a Tick Cluster chart you can see distribution of the current day volumes and Level II (DOM) data.
