Excuse me if this is a stupid question, but does mtgox have an option to see market depth? The trading page allows me to set a price, but without know the current levels of bid/asks how can I make a judgement about what price to set?

Cryptoxchange seems to display this information on its trading page, but I can't seem to find it on mtgox.

I can't seem to find it either, I'm pretty sure that they used to show it. The market depth is available in their API though and if you want something a bit more user friendly it is also available on Bitcoin Charts.


for the reports you have:



for the source data you have:

en.bitcoin.it/wiki/MtGox/API/HTTP/v0#0.2FgetDepth.php (truncated)

en.bitcoin.it/wiki/MtGox/API/HTTP/v1#Full_Depth (full)

Try http://classic.mtgox.com --> trade data --> market depth

you do not have to log in


There is also mtgoxlive.com/orders, but they have had some trouble lately. I have also recently discovered http://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/ which is nice, but lacks the nice display of order depth
