To have this widget display data, first click the Symbol with the dropdown box near the bottom left of the widget.

There are 6 columns that exist in this widget. They are as follows:

Volume

This column displays the volume of orders at different prices. It shows you the amount as a grey bar graph with the quantity inside the bar in white text.

Buy

This column is visually empty until you hover your mouse over it. Wherever you hover your mouse you will see a blue rectangle with rounded ends, saying "LMT +(X)" or "STP +(X)" (for Limit or Stop). By default the X is 1, and this is adjustable with the quantity selector near the bottom of the widget (above the price data).

Clicking on this will open a prefilled Order Ticket at the price of the row you clicked. The row you click also determines if it will be a Limit or Stop. For rows that show red quantity bars under Ask, you will be offered a Stop prefill. For rows that show blue quantity bars under Bid, you will be offered a Limit prefill.

Bid

This column shows the volume of the contracts in orders on the market's book at each given price, with a blue bar graph of the quantity. Inside the bar graph the amount is shown in white text. You can also see a number just to the left of the bar graph to show the recent change of the graph's quantity. Only Bid prices will be shown, meaning it will be equal to or below the market price.

Price

This column shows the price for the data on that row.

Ask

This column shows the volume of the contracts in orders on the market's book at each given price, with a red bar graph of the quantity. Inside the bar graph the amount is shown in white text. You can also see a number just to the right of the bar graph to show the recent change of the graph's quantity. Only Ask prices will be shown, meaning it will be equal to or above the market price.
