Hi Portland - curious as to whether I'm using the same vocabulary as you. When you say

Portland View Post
In my experience, reading Price Action is more reliable then T&S. Watching the T&S can be very deceiving, but Price never lies.

it does sound you are talking about Depth of Market when you say Time and Sales.

The reason I say this: T&S is, effectively, price action, as in, it's the prints of orders. DOM shows intent mixed with action.

Just want to clarify. Thanks.
