Trading with Institutional Money Moves

Recommended Posts

Identifying and trading along with institutional money moves works for all asset classes: Stocks, Commodities, Currencies, and Treasuries. In this article, we focus on stocks.

 

Who are institutional investors and what is their core focus?

 

Table 1: Key Institutional Investors

Table-1 shows: “Prop Traders” also act as “Liquidity Providers”: On one hand, some institutions trade their own money and on the other hand, they are providing liquidity. Hence, if a core “Prop Trading Company” wants to accumulate or dispose stocks, they have to bypass their key competitors. Even so, they try to hide their actions, the other market forces spot what is going on and trade along with it – and you can do the same.

The highlighted trade situations on the chart identify that:

  • Price consolidation is going hand in hand with decreasing volumes.
  • Price expansions to the up- or downside is going hand in hand with increasing or collapsing volume.

 

Putting it all together provides you a chart-based strategy to trade right at the highlighted instances:

  • With the direction of the price range breakout.
  • With the Gap.
  • With a Strong Directional Candle.

Over the years, we developed multiple indicators and studies, which highlight institutional price moves by spelling out potential trade entries and exits. For an example, please check: http://www.neverlosstrading.com/Top_Line.html

 

After we clarified when to initiate a trade, the next question is which stocks to trade?

 

To follow institutional price moves, pick stocks which are widely held by multiple institutions. When you select the S&P 100 and the NASDAQ 100, you already found the core of the trading opportunities. Each of those stocks is held in most mutual funds and by multiple institutional investors.

 

The next challenge is to find trading opportunities. We developed special scanning programs; however, you can find tradable stocks by picking those with a stronger price move than the referring index:

  • For the S&P 100 choose OEX.
  • For the NASDAQ 100 choose QQQ.

 

Stocks to trade are those with an above or below the comparison index price-moves. With the NeverLossTrading mentorships, students will receive daily reports on trading opportunities. If you want to be part of some specific reports, please sign up with our free report link…click here.

 

To be a successful private investor, the skills and experience for being able to make money when the markets go up and down is essential.

 

When a major price move occurs, expect to trade one direction for no more than 10 trading days and after that expect a reversal. If you want to catch a longer trend trade, trail your stop:

  • To the upside: Below the low of the prior candle.
  • To the downside: Above the high of the prior candle.

 

Why is an institutional follower strategy successful?

 

  • Private investors have the advantage of speed: They can enter and exit entire positions, while Institutions need a longer time to get in and out of a position by sheer size and SEC (Security Exchange Commission) regulations.
  • By the smaller size, you have an easier way to leverage and hedge trading positions.
  • With a short- rather than long-term strategy, money can be made on up- or down-moves.
  • Short-term trading allows for constantly generating and compounding interest, which gives you accelerating returns.
  • With modern technology on hand and competitive commissions, the private investor can access all markets real time, similar to institutions.

      Does anyone know of any indicators, indices, or market internals that function well during the overnight session for the US index futures, bond futures, oil, gold, type of 24 hr trading during non US hours?

      ddmarkets was established in 2014. The forex trading signals work in the following manner. The technical or fundamental setup is presented via daily, weekly or monthly time frames. The trading signal is then shortly issued via email. Updates are then issued via email until the trade/s are closed. If you are looking to make money on every trade looks elsewhere. Every signal has a stop, entry and take profit. The risk management aspect in terms of the trade size is left up to the trader.
      The forex signals are reliable and fairly accurate, a track record is available going back to 2014. https://www.ddmarkets.com/

      So I've been messing with the indicators and learning about them. Made me curious what does the majority use here and why?
      Currently I'm using Bollinger Bands, Awesome Oscillator, Moving Average, Belkhayate Timing and Parabolic SAR.
      From all these Belkhayate is my favourite so far, it almost only made me win trades. While Parabolic is almost like MA, I still can read it more clearly on how the market moves.

    • Date : 22nd April 2019. Events to Look Out for Next Week.The shortened week starts with just one piece of news on Monday and Tuesday from the US, while Wednesday will be in focus as the UK Parliament returns from its Easter recess. US Durable Goods are out on Thursday along with the BoJ rate decision.Wednesday – 24 April 2019 CPI (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australia’s inflation rate for Q1 is expected to have declined slightly to 1.7% y/y compared to 1.8% y/y in the final quarter of 2018.

Event of the week – BoC Interest Rate Decision (CAD, GMT 14:00) – At the BoC meeting, consensus expectations are that there should be no interest rate change. A sharper and more broadly based slowdown in the domestic economy, alongside a slowing in the global economy that has been more pronounced and widespread than anticipated saw the Bank state “the outlook continues to warrant a policy interest rate that is below its neutral range.” Thursday – 25 April 2019 Event of the week – Interest Rate Decision (JPY, GMT 02:00) – Among the core central banks, BoJ is firmly poised to be “low for longest”. Hence, once again BoJ is expected to keep the interest rate as it is, given that it appears to have finally had an impact on the Japanese economy.

Industrial Production is expected to have improved, growing by 0.6% m/m in March, compared to -1.1% m/m in February, while Retail Sales are expected to have increased by 1.2% y/y, compared to 0.6% in March. Friday – 26 April 2019 US Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – The economy’s most important figure, Q1 GDP is expected to rise 2.6%, following a 2.2% pace in Q4 and 3.4% growth in Q3.
