I do monitor block trades and more so dark pools. Dark Pools are not visible in the orderbook but are released to the consolidated tape usually after cash close. One could filter TimeAndSales for large orders (above 100000++) and see what big players are upto. I usually have this running for sector ETFs, Gold, FANG, Financials etc to get a feel after the close.
