I'm pretty new at this so this question might be obvious.

So, I'm building software that will update the order book from the real time depth channel and in order to do this reliably I need to get the full depth as a starting point I beleive. I read https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/MtGox/API/HTTP/v1#Full_Depth that there is a 5 times per hour limitation requesting the full depth, which of course is fine if you can keep things within that limitation. Wink However, say I would like to have all currency pairs, then I would need to get the full depth once for all which is more than 5 times. This would be a problem if the limitation is across all currency pairs.

How are you guys doing this? I'd be happy if someone could explain.

In addition, I can see that http://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/ also seems to do this so that if one would refresh that site or switch too often between currencies one could get banned from MtGox. Does anyone know if this is the case?

I'd be happy if someone can shed some light on this. Thanks in advance!
