Ive seen several times where people reccommend watching time and sales when entering a trade. I have tried this a number of different times because it seems so logical. If you see a steady stream of trades going off at the bid the markets going down, right? Wrong! Somebody is buying all that merchandise. Are all those buyers idiots? Hardly. I dont know how many times ive seen 100 on the offer and a 1000 on the bid and itll drop to the next level in an instant. Maybe Im missing something but I do not see any advantage to it. I should specify that I am referring to the futures market. If anybody is using time and sales as an indicator and feels like sharing I would appreciate their input on how to use it effectively.
