In the UK there are 2 types of Level II screens, SETS (order driven) and SEAQ (quote driven).
The Stock Exchange Trading System (SETS) is an electronic limit order book used to trade blue-chip stocks including all FTSE 100 and all UK FTSE Eurotop 300 stocks plus those with traded options. The SETS order book matches buy and sell orders on a price/time priority.
Stock Exchange Automated Quotation (SEAQ) service is the official trading service for the majority of small to mid-cap, domestic securities. On SEAQ all buys and sells go through a market-maker who acts as an intermediary.
Level II data provides you with the same data as seen by the professionals in the City. You can see market information that previously only Market-Makers and Institutional Investors could see.
Prices are always streaming live prices - there is no need to refresh the screen.
