Attack the Data Deluge with Price Talk Visualizations
Often times, there's just too much data to digest in tabular form and a plot would better elucidate what's actually going on in the market.
To these ends, for any BWIC with price talk from five or more dealers, box plots and dot plots can be generated. Icons for these plots will be displayed on any applicable BWIC page (as shown in screen shot below).
Click on the dot plot icon, and you'll be taken to a chart page (as seen below).
Or click on the box plot icon, to see the price talk data rendered in box plot form (as seen below).
Tips & Tricks:
Box and Dot plots can be generated at the single bond level as well. Just click on the Box Plot or Dot Plot icon that appears on the Price Talk table pop up (example screenshot below).
