Sorry samur, I am unable to. I can't 'read the tape' when it comes to equities. I tried that years ago (I was very inexperienced back then) and one thing I never got over was that there were several large orders that were never reported in real time to the exchange and they would regularly show up as late additions. They were moving the market but you would find out like an hour later.

That was one of the reasons why I abandoned the idea of day-trading equities and I chose futures.
