Please view the video below for an in-depth explanation of the Level 2 window in the WT Simulator platform.
In addition to the video above:
You might notice a few different symbols on the bottom of the level two window. Depending on the stock ticker you are looking at, these indicate the exchange that the stock is listed on. The key is as follows:
Q = NASDAQ
A = AMEX
N = NYSE
Z = BATS
P = NYSEARCA
Others you might see listed on the bottom of level two can be:
ETB= Easy to Borrow (shares to short)
- If ETB is not displayed this means it is hard to borrow and would not be shortable per the broker's list. In the case of the WT Sim, the ETB list is similar to that of CMEG by default. If you'd like to update your short list to that of Lightspeed or have us confirm you are on the CMEG list, email email@example.com or submit a support ticket.
HALT= This means the stock is currently halted and cannot be traded until the resumption time per the listed exchange.
- Here's an easy reference page from Nasdaq that traders can reference for halted stocks: https://www.nasdaqtrader.com/trader.aspx?id=TradeHalts
FLAT= means you have no position on this symbol
