I know there have been threads about trading off of the orderbook and reading orderflow before but it seemed like they never really got in depth. I realize most of you think that with all the black boxes/quant systems, etc in our markets today reading the orderbook is a joke. Well I am not an extremely wise person on the subject but I have been watching the orderbook constantly and I believe it is a big part of my MODEST success. There are very few "nevers" and "always" in this business. There are lots of "frequently", "sometimes", "hardly" and "maybe". So I don't expect everything to always work but there has got to be some high probability situations out there. The reason for me starting this thread is to share with others what I have found to be true when reading order flow and also to be able to benifit from the knowledge other veteran traders have found to be benificial in reading flow.
