I understand the basics but I want to know more. Things I would like to know: -How to read if a stock is under buying / selling pressure. I can see T/S go green or red and I can see the bid and ask stacks but often those big orders on the bid or ask never make it to print. Or maybe they do and I just miss it. -How to tell if a stock is too "thin" to get in and out of a trade. (Assume I'm trading 1k shares) -How to tell when the "majors" are "playing games" by loading up both the bid and the ask. -How to use L2 much like I would use charts to determine price direction. -How to use L2 much like I would use charts to determine a good entry/exit for either shorts/longs. Especially the exit. I often get in right and get out wrong. Maybe a better understanding of time and sales along with L2 could help. - (referring to bid/ask) How is the aggregate bid/ask information best used? On my platform it aggregates the top level bids/asks so you know right away how much is behind the bid / ask. -On many stocks, everything changes so fast, how does one comprehend and make sense of the information overload to the extent it can be used. Where can I find more information on Level II techniques and Time and Sales usage? I like to play the Low of Day / High of Day. I day trade this strategy. I tend to trade stocks with a 5 day average volume over 500k and priced above 20 dollars. One thing I've considered is a prop firm for the educational aspects of it. I don't really need the margin but I obviously could benefit from having access to other traders and educational materials. I have posted there and will follow up to that as it will be more detailed but I wanted to mention my thinking on the matter here as some may agree/disagree I can find the kind of education I seek at a prop firm.
