«16:23:38» {gribble} There are currently 44174.357 bitcoins demanded at or over 5.0 USD, worth 228372.191755 USD in total.
«16:23:39» {gribble} There are currently 17898.522 bitcoins offered at or under 6.0 USD, worth 105629.639499 USD in total.

btccharts.com shows completely different data though. Over 58k bids and over 34k asks. Clark Moody keeps drifting upward, it changes the accumulated orders when I refresh, and is somewhere in between otherwise...

Which sources are most reliable in such situations?

My impression is that btccharts and Clark Moody are generally not to be trusted when there's a lot of activity, and gribble usually gives credible data. But I can't know for certain, can I?

Edit: clark Moody seems to be in sync with gribble now if I refresh often enough. So I guess gribble was right again. Btccharts shows something different entirely.

Assuming they get their data from MtGox that's correct. Other exchanges work in Europe just fine, though.

We're talking about Mtgox market depth...

I find that CM isn't too bad if you refresh once in a while, and the list is updating. BTCCharts has a few bugs, even when it's working right.

I use CM and GoxLive for orders/depth. If one goes down (usually the API/socket.io, so both), I start checking others, but I usually just pull my orders until the stink clears.

;;bids number
;;asks number

Where number is a USD/BTC value in US formatting (e.g. 5.4). It will give the cumulative depth in BTC and USD.

Works in query and #Bitcoin channel.

"Gribble?"

new one on me...link?

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

Gribble is correct. But mine charts also.
I'm often checking btccharts vs mtgoxlive and it's always the same. Just check out now Tongue

Anyway there should be some indicator that data is ...outdated - I will work on this.
For now you can just check last trade time.
