Hello SC-Community,

I have one general questions. When I open the time and sales and make some settings there, I see bid and ask trades.
Is a bid trade which is generally coloured 'blue' a trade where a limit buy order is filled (one trader buys contracts)?

Correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks in advance
Max

Usually this means a sell market order was matched with a buy limit order.

It is both.

A trade consists of both a buy and sell order.
