The "Yellow Strip" or "Touch" prices, shows very different information than on the SEAQ screen:
  • 1 (L) and 3 (R) Number of buy and sell orders at the best price. In this case its actually 1 on the 'buy' (left side) and 3 on the 'sell' side (right side).

  • 9,661 (L) and 62,482 (R) Total Volume at best price. 9,661 are available on the 'buy' side and 62,482 are available on the 'sell' side.

  • 1746-1747 Best prices: the best price for a specific security, determined by the current orders on the order book. So the best available price if you wanted to execute a sale to a 'buyer' ( left side ) would be 1746. If you were a buyer the best or cheapest price you would pay is 1747 from a 'seller'.
