Hello, first time here. I was searching Google for tutorials/info/threads on getting trading ideas (that is, a directional bias) based on price. The context of my question comes after having read both books on Jesse Livermore and how he constantly says he trades based on paying attention and getting familiar with price itself. But he doesn't expand much on that. In one of the books, there is a mention that he has staff writing numbers and special symbols on the boards based on tape numbers. But there is no clue/hint as to what those symbols are or what they mean. The only thing we are told is that it has something to do with pure price and volume. I was hoping someone might have more insight into this - perhaps there is a modern term for this?
