What is the 20 market depth feature?

Zerodha is the only retail broker to offer 20 market depth or Level 3 data to its clients.

20 Market depth, also known as Level 3 data, provides detailed information about the best bids and offers for stocks at various prices and quantities. It displays the top 20 bids and offers. On the other hand, regular market depth or Level 2 data shows the best 5 bids and offers for stocks and F&O contracts at different prices and quantities.
