Layout Customisation on Bitfinex
Layout Customisation allows you to customise your Bitfinex trading page according to your preferences. Different widgets can be added on and removed, and you can also adjust the size of each widget.
1. Customise your page layout by finding the Customized Layout icon on the top navigation bar.
2. You will now enter editing mode and be able to adjust the size and position of all the widget cells available. You can also add on any widgets you would like to use by clicking on them and selecting Add.
3. Any of the widgets can also be deleted by pressing the x on the upper right of each widget.
The widgets can be pulled to adjust the size and restored to the default size again through the Reset size button.
4. Once all edits have been made, you will need to press Save for the edits to be confirmed and available for your Trading page.
5. If you would like to reset your entire Trading page back to the default UI, you can select Disable Custom Layout. This will remove all previous customised layouts you had on your page.
Note: Layout customisation supports widescreen sizes.
What is Bitfinex Trade Desk
The Bitfinex Trade Desk allows you to create custom trading views with the ability to tailor many components, such as charts, orders, and books, to specific trading pairs, making it easier to monitor or place frequent trades.
How to use Bitfinex Trade Desk
1. The Bitfinex Trade Desk is accessible through the Layout icon in the top navigation bar. Here, you will gain access to an array of customisable widgets and the ability to create various editable templates based on pairs and parameters of your liking.
2. Proceeding, when you click on Configure new template, you will be able to begin building your custom template.
3. From here, you can select from a wide range of components such as:
Note: Balances, Bitfinex Pulse, Liquidation, Derivative (Liquidations), Orders, Positions, Order History, Bids & Offers cannot be configured. You can only use the Add, Remove, Move and Resize functions.
As shown in the image above, all other tickers and trading components can be configured for all available trading pairs.
4. Finally, you can save the template with your desired configuration. If needed, you can use the Edit Template function, to make changes to saved templates.

What is Bitfinex Market Watch widget
Bitfinex Market Watch is a powerful tool which features customisable ticker tiles showing:
- 24h change in Price;
- 24h Chart.
You can either customise the Bitfinex Market Watch widget with pairs of your choice or use the following pre-built presets found in Settings:

To customise the ticker tiles you would like to see in the Bitfinex Market Watch widget, select the Choose the tickers to display option and then click the cogwheel on the right to configure.
Then, you can select as many trading pairs as you would like from all the available trading pairs on Bitfinex. The pairs can be easily accessed and edited anytime via the settings.
What is Depth Chart
The Depth Chart is market depth visualised and labelled so you can see total order quantity, price and slippage at every level of the order book. Use the depth chart to easily:
- assess market supply and demand at a glance;
- calculate potential trade costs on the fly;
- identify significant support and resistance levels.
The Depth Chart will be available on your Bitfinex trading page by default, and you can also choose to remove it using “Customise Layout” as described in the previous section above:
- X-axis: Price;
- Y-axis: Total amount of orders;
- Green lines: Bid orders;
- Red lines: Ask orders.
You can also use the precision buttons on the top right tab to get book depth at various precision levels:
- Set Single Tick: This will display 1 price point on each side.
- Set Double Ticks: This will display 2 price points on each side.
- Set Volume Based Ticks: This will indicate significant support and resistance levels dynamically on each side.
- Hover the main chart area to see quantity, price and slippage at different points in the order book.
- Click + / - or scroll the chart area to zoom in and out of the order book and see slippage and significant support and resistance levels at different market depths.
- Using the Customise Layout option, you can render the depth chart vertically or in your preferred dimensions.
