Flickering, Happening in (not even) the Blink of an Eye

V3 visuals allow users to easily identify when a quote event is a price adjustment of sitting order. In event columns that contain a price adjustment change order, both the original price and the new price are highlighted. As you can see from the image below, the original price is hollowed out while the new price is filled in. This makes identifying this type of change order very easy and provides a bit more context of what is taking place in the market.
With V3 visualizations, we can see that these 22 orders (or price change orders) are flickering between the same two prices. If we look at the time span in the top middle, #WhatYouCanSeeWithV3 is that all of this was done in just over 150 milliseconds - about half the time it takes for a human eye to blink.
