You have see in this situation a reaction to the big limit order. It was a big seller and he was filled, but market react and go down. At this point tape probably were slooooooow))))
if you want careful and detailed answers, please ask detailed questions)))
this is will help
you need to describe:
1) price level (support or resistance)and type of price(previous low or high,or braken low or high)
2) is there was large prints or not and what prints are were there (BID block ASK block)
3) speed of the tape and how it moved. is it push or is it run
4) of what size was limit ordes at bid and at the ask
And YES guys. You can trade using only tape)))
Is my english clear for you )))
Happy holidays to all of you i know you are loving you country very much )))

Sorry. Next time I will give more detail.

Are you sure you don't live in America bloom? Im impressed.

buyers retreating and sellers coming


Can anybody please explain what indication is there in this TnS, especially in the boxed area, that says that buyers are retreating and sellers are coming?

I may sound stupid to ask this question, but I am newbie..please cooperate

Please note that in this TnS, new entries are added at the bottom, unlike the TNS in Ninja..

That doesn't look like a Time & Sales to me - what product is it from? The rest looks like IB...

Level 2 Bluff

I have seen this before. On the tape it doesn't print as as much as what the Huge offer was. I didnt know what it meant before.

Algo Refilling Dom

I have seen this also but didn't know how it could be happening. They selling heavily(printing at BID), the BID is not even that big, but yet the BID remains the same size! I will need to read about algorithmic trading.

actualy you are looking and stare at the tape to not be fooled by this DOM jumping dumping. Than you see the print this is mean that there was a trade and there was bid and offer and transaction. All of this fooling things in DOM are not bother you, cause you see the truth of order flow. Thats why you do not need at the first time concentrate at the DOM or level 2. You think i belived everything in DOM or level 2? No way))) Only tape. I see print i see reaction and the price at print was. I do not know much about algo and this is not care for me)) I dont need this. But thats your point of what you want to do)))
Just a light look at the DOM and you understand how much algo there are. Look how quickly limit order 1500-2000 take off and pulled higher than take off and pull lower. Human not capable to do such fast operations. 40% of volume in the DOM is fake and it is called "Scarecrow" or "Cap" or "Damper"
But all of actions to fool you with DOM are crushed if you are waiting good BIG juicy print that let you know 100% here big guy.

It is nice to know what limit order pulling looks like.

I am wondering bloom. Did you start as a scalper? How much did you go for at first 2 ticks or something?
