In order to get a little better understanding and a little fairer prices, lets assume you buy or sell taking the top 10 orders currently out there on the order book.
We will look at the orders 10 at a time to get a little better understanding of liquiity, size and price that is available.
For the first 10 buy orders out there, 0.0318809 OPEN.BTC for 8119.32BTS or about $360.3816936.
For the second 10 buy orders out there, 0.0062712 OPEN.BTC for 1583.76BTS or about $70.8896448.
For the first 20 to 30th buy orders out there, 0.0063595 OPEN.BTC for 1585.38BTS or about $71.887788.
If you wish to buy immediately and you took the top sell orders on the book this is what it would look like.
The first 10 sell orders offer up an average of 0.001124877 OPEN.BTC for 292.5962 BTS or about $12.72.
The second 10 sell orders offer up an average of 0.0073263 OPEN.BTC for 1936.59 BTS or about $82.82.
The 20 to 30th 10 sell orders offer up an average of 0.0115342 OPEN.BTC for 3064.08 BTS or about $130.38.
Here is another way to look at the liquidity:
So if you wanted to sell $500 USD of Open.btc you would need to take 2 buy orders, at that point you would have an about 0.05 BTC for 11,715 BTS. This would give you an average price of 257,189. That price would be at a -0.11% discount to the current average "middle" price. As one would expect the more you buy or sell the worse price one is typically going to get.
This gives us an idea about the market. Here are some more useful numbers to look at:
We have looked at 484 orders, there might be more, but we only look at the top 300 on each side. We are most concerned about the at the money liquidity of this market.
Some of the accounts have multiple orders. These are counted as "Possible Staggered Orders?"
The DexBot market making bot has a strategy called staggered orders, it puts multiple orders on the books. It is fairly obvious to look at these and see people who are doing this strategy, because it spaces out buy and sell orders in a fair way. While not completely sure all these people are running the DexBot, this number is of interest to some people and how widely Dexbot is being used. Here this number is just the count of all accounts with multiple orders in the market.
In many markets, the staggered orders make up a large percentage of orders, because a few accounts put out a lot of orders. Here 75% of the orders in the market are likely DexBot related. Here 7 accounts each give out an average of 51 orders each, so 357 of the 484 orders are likely produced by DexBot Staggered Orders trading strategy. At some point I may be able to further refine my algorithm, but that is why there is a question mark there.
Another concern to market makers is the number of normal accounts that are trading in the market, here 27 accounts have a single order, that is about half of the market participants. That is 5.8% by market count. Running bots to trade is great, but market making is all about the ability to trade, make money and make orderly markets. It is fine if a few bots trade with each other, -it happens all the time; but we want real people involved too.
Here I have also put in a market size number. All these numbers need to be taken with a grain of salt. The problem I have is there are extreme orders in the markets, which blow out the statistics. Let me illustrate this with an example, lets say you wanted to know the average price of a burger, and your buddy was willing to sell you his lunch for $1,000,000 million dollars. That would sorta throw off the averages. Here I took the lesser numbers to try to get a sense of real size of this market. So there is about $20,000 in assets open on the market at this point in time, -in the top 300 orders on both sides of the market.
We can also take this and get an average market order of $42.
So at the end of the day, one can see some idea of the average order size and liquidity in the market. We get a good idea of the number of people, the amount of assets and the ability to buy and sell in BitShares. Understanding of what the liquidity is important to people who are looking for markets to trade, looking to improve the liquidity and are looking to minimize trading costs on an exchange where you own your own keys.
Have fun trading!
