Open Orders: A snapshot of the trigger points for all open orders held by OANDA clients (meaning limit orders and Stop/Loss or Take/Profit orders on open trades). This information could be interpreted as an indicator of the client price expectations that are contributing to natural resistance and support levels .

The graph is divided into quadrants showing whether orders are Buy vs. Sell and also whether trigger price points are below or above the market price at the time the snapshot was taken. Number of orders at each price level is shown as a percentage of the maximum number of all open orders (both buy and sell) during the past 24 hours.

This table summarizes the key differences between the quadrants:

Open Positions: A snapshot of the entry prices for all open positions currently held by OANDA’s clients. This information could be interpreted as an indicator of market reaction to price changes and the pressure on prices due to unrealized profit and loss.

  • Cumulative: Adds percentages together (cumulatively) as you move away from the snapshot’s market price. This style provides an alternative view to spot trends, and also is an easy way to compare the totals for each quadrant.

  • Non-cumulative: Plots percentages at each price point. This style is useful to spot price clusters.

  • Net: Shows the net value of short and long values at each price level. This style is an easier way to assess market changes because you can identify net support or resistance at each price point.
