This section explains some of the visual cues that are found in the figures throughout this book in particular, but many are found in the other books in this set as well.
The entities on the Street all have different colors to differentiate them (see Figure VG.1). These colors are used throughout the set to distinguish functions, processes, and attributes related to specific groups of entities. Note that banks while green have either a blue or red stroke to denote that banks perform different functions for the buy side and sell side. The icons representing many attributes are color coded to reflect the entity that they represent.
Figure VG.1 The meanings of various colors are shown in this graphic.
