DislikedYes, "both sides" means orders on both sides, on bid AND on ask side, long AND short. If you take a second look at the picture, focus on white rectangles. On the bid side (left) you can see 2 x 3000k (2 x 3 mio) limit orders (long) and on the ask side (right) you can see the same: 2 x 3000k limit orders (short). They are very close to current market's bid/ask, but still few pips away.
What is more important, these orders are:
1) Always there (every single nanosecond). If filled (partialy or fully) they are instantly (I repeat: instantly!)...Ignored
TDFX = broker = GAIN = forex.com same player.
5. it is spread..
what you see, are only cumulative positions from the broker on both sides, ASk and BID and YES the difference is the spread.. and when needed broker adjust positions to keep books float...
For real Market Depth you need a centralized market like Nasdaq, and then you may see the other players and eventualy some large blocks of order.. in FX market is very difficult. In your case, the whole feed is only from 1 player -> your broker..
