Visible order queue

Discussion in 'Trading' started by joethemoustache, Feb 6, 2004.

  1. Howdy, just wondering if there are any instances when an order queue could be rendered visible. All this adding and pulling bids before they are lifted really implies someone (mm:s?) know their place in the queue and can time cancellations in a very precise manner.

    Is this possible, is there a difference between different order matching systems in this respect? Or is it a total lock on the order queues because them being visible would screw things up?

    Would appreciate any input.
