Overview of the Trade View
This article will explain the Candlestick Chart, the Order Book, and the Depth Chart displays.
The price chart
is a fast and easy way to view historical pricing. The price chart can be customized based on time range, chart type (candlestick and line), and overlay (12- and 26-Day EMAs).
The depth chart
is a visual representation of the order book, showing bid and ask orders over a range of prices, along with the cumulative size.
The order book panel shows the current open orders on Coinbase Prime in an order ladder format.
The order form
panel lets you place orders on the order book.
The open orders panel displays two things:
- Maker Orders that have been posted but not filled, canceled or expired, and
- Stop Orders which are currently active.
