While novice traders seek confirmation, experienced traders know that the ability to anticipate where the market is going before it becomes obvious is a significant advantage. AlphaReveal's highly innovative displays and surfaced market depth information provide significant advantage for the anticipatory trader over traditional trading platforms.
Anticipatory trading involves forming an idea where the market is going and taking a position in expectation of that movement before it becomes obvious. Imagine two traders expecting the market to move higher. The anticipatory trader buys at a relative low while the confirmation trader waits for the market to touch a previous high. The anticipatory trader thus has a pricing advantage over the trader seeking confirmation. Imagine that the market's nature changes and both traders realize that a move higher is a lower probability and that a move lower is now in play. The anticipatory trader stands a better chance of getting out of the bad trade with a small loss, small profit, or break even while the trader who sought confirmation is almost assuredly going to take a loss.
AlphaReveal is an enabling technology for anticipatory trading. AlphaReveal makes it easy to spot changes both in the executed order flow and the resting limit orders that so often precede the price action. This sort of information compliments and combines well with more traditional price action analysis. The result is a powerful synthesis that enables a degree of clarity and insight into the market's internal dynamics that would otherwise be impossible.
