OPEN.* assets are IOUs backed by CCEDK.com. You can deposit actual bitcoin and receive OPEN.BTC, or "withdraw" OPEN.BTC and receive actual bitcoin.
Check the "Deposit/withdraw" page on your "Account" tab at bitshares.openledger.info .

All the 3 letter markets (BTC, USD, GLD) are Smartcoins / market pegged assets that are counterparty free, backed by collateral from BitUSD shorters who have to buy back USD to cover their short positions.

The markets with prefixes (OPEN.BTC, METAEX.BTC) are IOUs that are equivalent to deposits on another exchange.

Yes the gui could show this difference more clearly.
