Overview

The Heatmap is a visual record of historical liquidity within the Order Book, showing the total value of limit buy orders (below current price) and limit sell orders (above current price), at each price.

Updated in real-time, it also shows the current liquidity conditions.

It consists of a grid of blocks, each with a specific color / intensity that represent the strength of supply or demand, at that price/time.


Heatmap Intensity Slider

TradingLite give you the ability to configure how the heatmap’s data is rendered. This is achieved by using the intensity slider within the top toolbar. The slider’s colors serve as a legend for the Heatmap.
