Hacking market microstructure - what is algo order flow​?

“Deep understanding of the cause and effect relationships between institutional algorithmic order execution and HFTs will become your edge over other traders.

Let’s talk about how my personal experience as a licensed funded prop firm trader in the USA with a multi-million $ account in buying power can help you on your path of becoming a profitable trader much faster and easier than you could on your own.”


The course packages are designed for anyone who really wants to build a future as a trader

What you will learn here:

Objective and data-based derivation of the following indicators that reflect institutional algo order flow and execution urgency both Intraday and in a weekly sequence:

#square-root rule for market impact of large orders | #volume delta structure and footprints | #relative transaction speed | #open interest levels in futures and futures/ETF options | #delta/gamma-hedging by market makers | #linear regression as urgency forecast tool | #interval VWAP for mean reversion approximation

In addition to a quantitative analysis of order flow, trading stocks also requires a qualitative component in stock selection and how related options and futures influence pricing dynamics. To be able to adapt to dynamic market environment is the key here to be profitable in the long term. Use my many years of experience as an equity prop trader in the US to get the ball rolling.

You are a new to trading and committed to explore the opportunities the financial markets offer. Luckily, you have not been exposed to too much outdated or misleading information. You’re in the right place to plant a seed for a potentially very rewarding career as a trader.

Discretionary trading requires the most discipline but is also the most flexible for adjusting to changing trading environments. Deep knowledge of market microstructure gives you an edge over other traders competing for the same prize by anticipating institutional order flow.

Time horizon: minutes to hours

As a scalper you need to fully understand where you stand in this game of informed, partially-informed and uninformed (you) traders. HFTs own the short end and forecasting too far into the future requires information and resources you don’t have. Understanding algo order flow is your best bet to extract profits from other predators.

Futures are macro-driven derivative products that are primarily used as hedging vehicles by larger market participants. Speculative traders and market makers are the other parties providing temporary liquidity in this game. Understanding market microstructure and how these players interact is the key to becoming a profitable funded prop firm trader.

The trading pits died long ago but its outdated terminology and concepts survive to this day. It’s time to open your mind and replace the old with the new. Algorithmic trading drives the markets, so you owe it to yourself to get a better understanding of the difference between institutional versus HFT algos.

You are working on an automated system but you still struggle to differentiate range from trend periods. Similar to Newtonian mechanics where momentum = mass • velocity, we can use the square root rule to anticipate the market impact of urgent order flow. Learn more inside.

Time horizon: hours to days

You only want to take very selective trades per day or week and identify locations with favorable risk/reward. Learn how order execution algos react when prices move away from their benchmark to confirm trends or pre-emptively exit trades before your stop gets hit.
