Predictions.Global

Predictions.Global continues to improve and has added a page for REP Profit Calculation as well as info on the current and previous Fee Windows. Additionally, they’ve included a ‘Liquid Markets’ tracker at the top of the home page and the option to ‘Sort By Liquidity’ which ranks markets by a combination of how deep the order book and how narrow the spread is.
