Market Depth is also another important aspect of live trading. The Nepal Stock Exchange (Nepse) started displaying the market depth of listed companies on its website from the year 2015 to facilitate common investors of the capital market. Earlier, only the broker companies could use this facility. Market depth shows the total buy quantity and sells quantity along with the list of buy and sell orders of a certain company available at a certain price.

Likewise, there are 35 orders to sell 51,883 unit shares of Nepal Bank at different price.  Now, the transaction takes place only if the buy and the sell price match. Either the seller must reduce his order price to 336 or the buyer must increase his buy price to 338 to execute the transaction instantly.

Market depth is also useful to predict the price movement of stocks in the market. For instance, in the above example, if the buy quantity of Nepal Bank was huge compared to sell quantity, what would it mean? You can grasp a general idea that there is a chance that the company price may go up. High demand and low supply mean that the price may surge upwards. Similarly, high supply and low demand suggest the opposite.
