Trading chez MEXM When orders and quotes are entered into the central order book, they are sorted by type, price and entry time. Market orders are always given the highest priority for matching purposes. Limit orders and quotes are sorted together; there is no special consideration given to Market Maker quotes.
Orders and quotes in the central order book are anonymous: A trader never knows the opposite side on a trade executed through the exchange. MEXM Clearing Members are always the counterparty, which is managed and monitored by clearing and settlement department of MEXM. Orders and quotes at a given price level are aggregated, although the number of orders and quotes making up the total remains unknown. Participants only see the specific details of their own orders.
For all products, the best bid and ask prices, as well as their respective aggregated bid and offer sizes, are always available in real time. In many cases, these bid and ask prices are derived synthetically. For highly liquid futures, the depth of the order book is updated dynamically for the five best price levels, with sizes, on both sides. For less liquid futures, market depth can be accessed as a "snapshot".

Analyse technique In making decisions about where and when to take a position, investors, traders and analysts use two different approaches: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. Fundamental analysis is the appreciation of the economics underlying a particular trade. If you want to know where to invest and why, you use the techniques of fundamental analysis. Technical analysis is concerned with when and how of placing money. It determines the optimal timing for a position and its conclusions about how long to stay in a particular trade have significant importance for the kind of derivatives structure one may use to take a position.
Technical analysis is a method of evaluating investment by analyzing statistics generated by market activity, such as past prices and volume. It focuses on the use of charts and other tools to identify patterns that can suggest future activity. If a trader can do this with a reasonable degree of accuracy, then s/he can improve your chances of making a profitable trade. Technical analysis is important in the structuring of derivative products because of the leverage involved and because of the inclusion of such features as barriers and compound strikes. Timing is everything.
In practice, there are quite a few indicators that we can look at and that we can automate to produce trading signals when the rules we specify are triggered.
