What is the market depth screen and how do I view it?

The market depth screen is where you can see the best 5 bids and offers/asks for a particular instrument.

Mouse over the scrip on the MarketWatch or select and hit D to open the market depth. Multiple market depth windows can be opened at the same time. The dynamic market depth bars give you a visual overview of what levels most orders are being placed and you can place an order at any price in the depth with a click on it.
