Market Analytical and Trading Software
reads the tape in 4 different ways to identify specific patterns that are used to predict reversals or breakouts in trading ranges. The Accumulator will tell you when they're selling into the highs or buying into the lows. This is called divergence and it is a powerful reversal signal.
The Accumulator was designed for day trading 1-minute ranges, but it is equally effective for swing and longer term trading. For example, the Accumulator predicted the top in Apple in September 2012 that led to a 44% decline. Read about this in "Studies"in the Accumulator section of the website.

HFTAlert Text & Email Alerts
High Frequency and algorithmic trading systems have changed the behavior of the markets, making them much more volatile and more easily subject to manipulation. While the longer term direction of markets has not been affected, for traders there is no question trading has become more challenging.
Knowledge of these systems and how they affect trading during the day is information that active traders need.
I monitor the levels of algorithmic activity during the day and make posts on Twitter and StockTwits when I see activity that is important to note. I watch for 'Capper' spikes and "Long Duration" program trading. Both of these are important because 'Cappers' usually define a high or low during the day, and long duration programs are evidence of large scale buying or selling by institutional portfolios.
