Trading Strategy Insights 5: Order Flow Analysis Part 2

Using order flow analysis to spot a market change in real time

Gold Futures Order Flow Trade on September 13, 2019

Hello! Hope your trading went really well this week. Rogerio Amado here, strategy and performance coach at the Mind Muscles Academy.

The theme for my Trading Strategy Insights series this week is how to use order flow analysis, more specifically the Jigsaw daytradr platform, to spot a market change in real time.

Every week I share one trading strategy insight, taking a real and recent market example and breaking it down into smaller chunks, so you can understand the logic behind my strategy and trade management. This week’s strategy insight focuses on how to read a momentum and absorption using order flow.

This is a continuation of my previous trade example on order flow. It’s a great example to show how we can use order flow to identify a change in market mood right when it happens.

So, let’s go to our trade explanation:

How to read momentum and absorption using order flow


This video was part of a recent live session on order flow analysis in the Strategy and Performance Workshop.

Go here for more information about our next Strategy and Performance Workshop, in which participants go through a complete strategy development process, step by step, from testing and validating a strategy to working on their trade execution, and then working on their trader’s mindset.

I’m a strong believer that mixing different techniques, such as fundamentals, price action, and order flow is a key to success in trading. And this is one of the skills we help traders develop at the Mind Muscles Academy.

The initial group filled really quickly, and we keep getting requests from traders to join the program. You can get notified when we open the next workshop by filling in the form below:
