qaza, yes I do look at DOM in Ftse.
DaxTrader, you're right about spoofs as well.
however, I think it's worth it to see say 800 lots one side v's 200 the other, over 6/7 points to help with a decision. It's can be nice to see you're not p*ssing in the wind, if you'll excuse the phrase.
Overall I think I gain more than I lose using it.
Where's best for a free chart to keep an eye on it? I'm a bit busy at the moment but just want to check on it from time to time.
Todays gap was a beauty,
But what really got me jumping (in panic) was my decision to go long at around 12 noon local german time. So I get the fill @ 4161 and the moment I hang up the phone I see 4151 - 4141 all in no more than 3-4 seconds. Looks like every other market that was open did the same wild spike up and then down. (I got out in frustration at 4162)
