From the CME: “Analyze current and historical bid-ask spreads, book depth, and cost to trade statistics for CME Group products across three distinct global time zones”
From the video:
Traders use liquidity as a key indicator to know how much of a product they can trade and what is the cost of trading it. It allows them to get in and out of the market quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Developed by CME data science, the interactive CME liquidity tool visualizes three critical factors that help you understand liquidity dynamics before trying a new market or a new trade.
Bid-Ask Spread: The difference between the price quoted to purchase and sell the product.
**Book Depth:**The number of contracts in buy orders and sell orders at a given price level.
The Cost to Trade: The amount it will cost in ticks equal to the minimum bid/ask spread to buy or sell a specific order size.
You can view current or historical product liquidity to understand the trends and patterns over time and focus on the trading hours of different time zones.
