Order Flow + Price Movement = Insight!

The key to understanding order flow trading is to combine it with the price action. Price action by itself can be difficult to read. Order flow by itself can also be difficult to read. The art and craft of tape reading is the combination of order flow and price action. The key take away and insight is to watch both the price and the order flow. Trading at a high level requires integration and understanding of other market player behavior. Strong buying that is unable to drive the market to new highs or strong selling that is unable to drive the market to new lows can reveal where markets may pause or reverse. 

And, that order flow information is most useful in the immediate context. And, that's why OrderFlowDashPro's AlphaReveal was designed for reading markets in real-time. And, our methods combine well with traditional chart or graybox trading. While just one technique of many, if you are looking for something to get you started then you find it valuable to pay especial attention to candlestick wicks on a short time frame chart while tracking the order book and order flow in AlphaReveal.  If you are serious about trading then be sure to grab our free trial today and see what order flow trading can do for you!

Risk Disclosure:

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical Performance Disclosure:

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
