Any of you guys watched the TV show Traders? It's 10 years old now and obviously most everything is automated (still a great show btw), but it got me thinking...

What about all the orders that are just an agreement between Party A and Party B? Party A maybe wants to sell 10,000 of XYZ and Party B wants to buy. They may agree to do it privately, in which case you don't see it on any market depth, you just see a big transaction blip.

Haven't given this much thought so could be wrong...

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hello DB,

I remember reading this study :

Do Retail Trades Move Markets?
--
We conclude that over short and long horizons retail trade imbalances forecast
future returns. Over short horizons – such as a day or week – retail trades move stock
prices in the direction of their trades. Over long horizons like a year, the retail trades
move only the prices of small stocks in the direction of their trade. In combination the
contemporaneous price moves and subsequent reversals suggest retail trades move
markets – particularly among small stocks, where the trades of retail investors are most
likely to be influential.

Thanks and Yes excellent points DBM.
Some mkts like NQ perhaps more retail as a percentage, but agreed it may perhaps a fool's errand to spend much energy trying to comb them out.

One thing I recently learned from one of my last books is that not all futures orders are displayed on the book. Apparently there are people that are allowed to trade without having to put their orders on the book.

There are Icebergs, but will still clear via the exchange and appear in T&S.

I'm not talking about OTC.

So who are these people?

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

It is a good show, not as much about trading as I would like. I got the series last year and watched a few episodes a day.
