    Default SPI depth being 'spread out' across the orderbook

    Upon opening SPI depth for the first time I found that everything is spread out across the orderbook. At first I thought it was some kind of error in NT, but then I checked in IB client and it was the same.

    What is up with bid/ask levels being spread out so much?

    Also I noticed alot more fills above the ask, and below the bid in T&S. How is this possible?

    Even the DAX appears normal in comparison to this.

    I've attached a screenshot to show what I mean.

    On the note of poor spreads, how about the Wednesday afternoon before the role, terrible terrible liquidity! Not sure how you even trade that junk!
