Order Flow has been presented as a mystique to potential Traders as well as seasoned Traders. In many cases it is assumed to be an insanely difficult concept to understand. Order Flow is, at its core, the transaction between a Buyer and a Seller. As a Veteran Trader using Order Flow to base my decisions, I can say that order flow is the very core of any market.
In this FREE booklet, you will learn:
  • What is order flow?
  • Volume by Price
  • Footprint

  • Tying it all together

December Corn traded to within a dime of its fourth downside PriceCount objective and it increasing appears like that was enough to satisfy the bear move. The September contract and the weekly chart each hit their counts. Now, the chart is activated upset objectives and the first Target to 4.94 has been met. If we can sustain the move and get above $5 there’s a second objective just above to aim for in the 5.03 area.
PriceCounts – Not about where we’ve been , but where we might be going next!
The PriceCount study is a tool that can help to project the distance of a move in price. The counts are not intended to be an ‘exact’ science but rather offer a target area for the four objectives which are based off the first leg of a move with each subsequent count having a smaller percentage of being achieved. It is normal for the chart to react by correcting or consolidating at an objective and then either resuming its move or reversing trend. Best utilized in conjunction with other technical tools, PriceCounts offer one more way to analyze charts and help to manage your positions and risk. Learn more at

The performance shown above is hypothetical in that the chart represents returns in a model account. The model account rises or falls by the average single contract profit and loss achieved by clients trading actual money pursuant to the listed system’s trading signals on the appropriate dates (client fills), or if no actual client profit or loss available – by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by the system’s trading signals on that day in real time (real‐time) less slippage, or if no real time profit or loss available – by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by running the system logic backwards on back adjusted data. Please read full disclaimer HERE.
