DOM window
The DOM (Depth of the market) provides full functionality for placing orders in the market. In order to be able to use DOM, you will need level 2 data, which you have to request from your data feed provider.

In order to open the DOM use one of the options:

  1. Select DOM by using Main -> New or
  2. Left click the symbol

in the chart toolbar within the main window.

The left side of the window displays the following instrument information:

It is possible to assign a Hot Key to the buttons "Reverse" and "Flatten".

The right side shows the Times and Sales list for the selected instrument.

What can you actually see in the order book? The two bars right at the top show the overall volume for buy and sell orders. Even if some orders are not in the visible area, their volumes are still included in the calculation.

The yellow cell displays the last price and the volume (in brackets):

When the box next to "Cum. Vol." is checked, you see the overall volume for the last orders executed at the same price
When the box next to "Cum. Vol." is not checked, you see the volume of the last order.

You can see the overall volume for the respective price on the left (for buy orders) and right (for sell orders). Values in brackets represent the cumulative volume for n levels (ticks) - in this case for every 5 ticks. You can change this setting as desired using "Size Summaries for Every Levels". In the example below, the 2-level cumulative volumes are calculated on the sell side in the following way: 581+318+510+973+501=2883.

On the left side, the user may notice Volume Histogram (HIST). It displays the traded volume per price-level for the complete chart.

Submission of orders via DOM
The possible order types are summarized below:
https://itg-futures.com/images/platforms/Agena/Screen_Shot_2019-07-04_at_40500_PM.png
To submit a Limit Buy/Sell, Stop Buy/Sell or Stop Limit Buy/Sell order you have 2 different possibilities:

1. Select the cell that corresponds to the desired price and left click on it.
https://itg-futures.com/images/platforms/Agena/Screen_Shot_2019-07-04_at_40511_PM.png
2. To submit a Stop Limit Buy или Stop Limit Sell order, hold the Ctrl button and click above the market price in the bid area or below the market price in the ask area. The selected cell will be frozen, allowing you to enter the difference in cents/ticks/pips for the limit price and the stop price. The picture below illustrates this:
https://itg-futures.com/images/platforms/Agena/Screen_Shot_2019-07-04_at_40521_PM.png
You are able to move orders via DOM by mouse.
https://itg-futures.com/images/platforms/Agena/Screen_Shot_2019-07-04_at_40531_PM.png
3. Use the cells in the middle to submit market buy/sell orders. This button changes red for a short position, and green for a long position.
Subsequently, the opened position and corresponding volumes are displayed in the Trades tab.
Clicking on the Flatten button closes the position and cancels the orders.
https://itg-futures.com/images/platforms/Agena/Screen_Shot_2019-07-04_at_40547_PM.png
If the price shifts away from the initial price of the opened position, it will still be shown at the top or bottom next to the price column.
If several submitted orders turn out to be in the non-visible area, they will be displayed cumulatively at the top or bottom next to the price column.
