Market Velocity

Market Velocity, as seen in NASDAQ’s Velocity and Forces, offered via real-time signals through Trade-Ideas, measures the intensity of trading interest using order messages entering NASDAQ trading systems.  Many of these signals do not show up in a traditional quote feed because they are immediately cancelled or re-routed and therefore never reside in the NASDAQ book.  Execute your trading strategy before other traders by comparing the expected order activity in a security with the current activity to detect surges in trading interest before trades occur.  Trade-Ideas software parses this mountain of real-time data, providing its users specially designed Velocity and Forces alerts and filters.

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.
