Supply And Demand

We've shared that price moves as a result of interactions between the market orders and the resting limit orders. We call this interaction the order flow and our flagship software, AlphaReveal, allows the trader to see this interaction, this dance, at a detail never before possible. Some traders are new to these concepts and don't quite understand how they work.

At the most basic level, our program shows supply and demand in real-time. It is really that simpleThe resting limit orders can be viewed as supply while the transacted market orders can be seen as a form of demand.  Chart traders can see where historical areas of supply and demand were by looking for areas of support and resistance. The question is will those same areas continue to be support and resistance in the future? That's where our software comes in by showing the trader the dynamics that are working "underneath the hood" and that allows traders to make better decisions.

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.
