How do you find out the direction of the big guys?

Different ways. Best way is to have a voice broker in Chicago or London and have a chat with them every day - then maybe a couple of guys on Skype to chat 5 mins every day.

If you have a voice broker he'll most likely invite you to events / dinners where you'll meet traders from banks and hedge funds and if you're nice and they're nice, you'll become friends... pretty much how life works

Edit: by voice broker I mean any institutional broker, you can most likely open an account for 250k - 500k if you tell them you'll put in 2-3-5 m$ in 6 months.... then in 6 months just say you're not happy with the service and you'lls tay at 250k - 500k
