I 'm a student of master in Spain and I'm doing the Master 's Thesis. Specifically I have chosen market manipulation thatís I think an issue that we all know. The issue is all we know of the existence of professional handling but I have chosen to establish some kind of pattern or a strong hand (SmartMoney) do move the market towards certain direction of financial news. << warning before continuing the goal is merely student and on success in the search for this "algorithm" will not be marketed >>
Having said that,
There is evidence to demonstrate the presence of large volumes of contracts in certain directions that make the market whatever the news make a direction.
The proof is these images that I hang below.
I have tried to contact the company that manufactured the robot but they have not told me anything about its functioning , have just told me that I could buy, but what I need is to know how it works in order to demonstrate that there is a pattern that meets the most of the time .
The only thing I could get are different videos that I put then where are treated different financial news:
The news that perfectly detects this robot is Tuesday at 22:30 ( API Investment ) i Wednesday at 16:30 ( weekly oil reserves )
I visited all the immense forum and the only similar article that I found is the user vvhg talking about Hunting Icebergs, and from here we want to thank the two most important indicators of my research are vvTitan and vvAggregate, and I think are the two indicators that will help me carry this thesis.
Another indicator that will be of great help and do not know what the author is JT_Realstats_RJ7v401.cs
So people do not have to go looking for different indicators have posted to the bottom of the indicators provided by vvhg listed above and a template (NinjaTrader) that I think will be necessary for users of the forum can see the movements that exist when this play a financial news.
Greatly appreciate any help given since this is the last resort available to me to find the algorithm.
Thanks to all, and I hope that the issue has a huge feedback.

You don't have a volume study or a time and sales, so I'm not sure what you constitute as "large volumes".
The big bars during news don't really mean that there are big buyers/sellers moving the market, the big bars are caused by lack of liquidity during and after the news event, so even small lots can move the market quickly.
I'm not sure if classifying volume after a news event as manipulation, if you think of the process.
Before news -> market is at value area priced at point A
After news -> market is goes into auction mode to find new value area priced at point B
Since disclosure of news is online and everyone pretty much gets it at the same time, the volume from the news event is really just all market participants who are trading the news event trying to find a new area of value (point B). This includes a lot of retail and insto's all running the same way. Some will think it's higher, some will think it's lower, the majority will win. I'm not sure you can classify that as manipulation - if someone tries to manipulate the market the opposite way of value point B, they will get overrun by the general market. I think manipulation is more about insto's pushing the market to certain points at the expense of retails rather than the market trying to find value.
I think manipulation is probably more prevalent during times when there isn't news and the market is being pushed to stop loss areas to or held at areas to trap people.
Anyhow that's my view, good luck with your thesis, great topic to pick I think.
