The Market window lets you monitor the current market and place orders for multiple instruments. The following panes compose the Market window:

  • Order Pane: The top half of the window. This is where you place your order. It contains the price, quantity, customer, and many order type fields.
  • Market Grid: The bottom half of the window. This is where you monitor and select real-time contract information for trading. Use tabbed Market Grids to display multiple grid panes in a single window.
