Implicit Book vs Explicit Book

What is the difference between the implicit order book and explicit order book?
When would it be desirable to “Show All”, “Show Implicit Book” or “Show Explicit Book”?


Hello @autobahn,

Thanks for your question.

As far as I know, the only differences between these two options are how the bid size and ask size columns on the default DOM are displayed.

As you will notice, when implicit is enabled, data does not populate for these columns.

When explicit is enabled, these column’s data will disappear upon a mouse hovering over the DOM.

From what I can tell, that is the major difference between both options, but we will investigate this further.

I hope this helps!
