Market Forces

Market Forces is a component of NASDAQ’s Velocity and Forces IOI datafeed and provides a real-time, pre-trade indication of the direction of the market by indicating whether trading interest is surging in buy or sell orders.  Used in conjunction with NASDAQ Market Velocity, traders can determine which stocks are hot and when to place buy or sell orders to secure the best prices.  Trade-Ideas software allows you to filter on Market Forces data, providing its users the ability to react faster than other traders without this dynamic information.  Read more.

Market Velocity and Market Forces measure levels of pre-trade order activity in the NASDAQ trading system, including NASDAQ, NYSE and other regional-listed securities, to indicate the intensity of trading interest and relative buy versus sell pressure.
