hey fellas, I've just recently started as a trainee at a proprietary firm (we deal with NYSE stocks), and I am learning the ins and outs of scalping. Basically, reading the time and sales window, as well as the NYSE specialist openbook, level 2 quote. I was wondering if anyone could shed some lights on how all of these tie together. So far the only thing i know is to spot uptick and downtick (to see whether the crowd sways more towards the sell or buy side) but i have no clue as to how to spot a fake bid/offer, a refresh order, a specialist intervention.... and also i'm not 100% sure about the representation of the time and sale screen in general. Could anyone show me a few t hings on the subject? Or explain how this works? Also, i'm looking for a good book/mag for what i'm doing, if anyone know a good one please let me know, since most books or mag tend concentrate on technical analysis. Hope to hear from you all soon.
