What is institutional order flow?

Dark pools – Dark pools are private exchanges for trading securities that are not accessible by the investing public. They facilitate block trading by institutional investors who do not wish to impact the markets

Block Trades – a sale or purchase of a large number of securities that is privately negotiated between institutional investors

Option spreads – $1M-$50M+ orders that Institutional execute everyday on the indexes that lead to market impact

Why is this important?

Understanding where the smart money is trading allows us to make smart trading decisions. Specifically, understanding institutional order flow allows us to sell options at key strikes that lead to consistent monthly income in any volatility market.
