Crypto Glossary/Order Book

Order Book

The list or currently active bids and asks for an asset market on an exchange.

An order book is a list of all the active buy and sell orders placed on an exchange or marketplace.

It can also be used to determine support and resistance levels based on how many bids or asks are stacked up at specific prices.

For an order to be listed on the order book, it needs to be placed as a limit order, as opposed to an instantly-filling market order or a conditional stop order that only triggers when a price level is reached.
