What Is the Cross BBO Add-on?
The Cross BBO (best bid and offer) add-on allows you to plot the last traded price and BBO from one instrument, on the chart of another instrument.
For example, the screenshot above shows the best bid from BTCUSD Binance (green line) plotted on the BTCUSD Multibook chart.
How to Configure the Cross BBO Add-on
To add external BBO or last trade data to your chart, you first need to subscribe to the source instrument.
The source instruments are listed in the Cross BBO configuration dialog. To show the external BBO data, simply select the corresponding checkbox.
Once you have added external BBO data, you can edit the colors.
