What is the Depth of Market?

Spreads in FX should always be considered in conjunction with depth-of-book. In FX, the larger the ticket size, the wider spread is. Depth of Market is a measure of volume available for transaction purposes for a particular instrument at a certain point in time. The best Offer (ASK) and the best BID are displayed in a table along with the capped volume available at given prices.
