I often see incorrect/nonsensical L2 data right after a large trade takes out a few levels on the DOM (depth of market). For example, this is from CLH9 1/22/2019 at 06:01.44.16260am EST the ask price is off by almost hundred ticks for a few updates in a row. Then at 06:01:44.162895 it 'comes back' to normal.

I have other examples, where crossed bid/ask MD0x levels are reported for a number of updates (typically following a trade that sweeps a few levels). Is this something that can be fixed?

Hello, I do see a potential issue here:

QCLH19,MD01,54.18,54.18,0,3886,06:01:44.162620,2019-01-22,52,06:01:44.162620,F,T,F,

For whatever reason, the Bid is invalid in this message. This is marked in the BidInfoValid flag at the end of the message. I can't think of a reason that the MD01 would ever be invalid though (this is what requires investigation).

Also, make sure you are paying attention to the end of group flag in the last field of the message. This field , when false, indicates that the message needs to be processed as part of a group. Essentially, only when this field is true should all depth levels be considered correct.

Yes, I am aware of the Bid/AskInfoValid flag. Note this line though:

QCLH19,MD10,53.05,54.27,90,14,06:01:44.162620,2019-01-22,52,06:01:44.162620,T,T,T,

which indicates end of group updates. It still has the 54.27 ask (this time all are flagged valid). This ask is definitely not valid, about 100 ticks off of correct price.
