i have some questions about T&S,. i guess you can say it is divided up between the bids asks.. but how do i know if it is accumulation or distribution? are the longs who have ridden the market higher taking profits and the market is taking a breather to continue higher? stuff like that...

simply turn on common sense and you will understand everything. It's not that you should see the accumulation or distribution. Not only that. The most important thing that you're looking for is the agressor, who will move the price.Pross will accumulate on the limits. But the limits do not move the price. You also need to price movement. This means that you need someone who will move it. And this is only an agressor.
