In recent years, order flow trading has become increasingly popular among traders of futures in English-speaking countries. This trading style is hardly known here and is still an insider tip. Unlike technical analysis, which attempts to use historical price movements to predict the direction the market will take, order-flow trading is a discipline that focuses on the orders actually executed. To understand the mechanism that drives prices up or down, it is necessary to understand the interaction between market depth on the one hand and market orders on the other. This interaction is the order flow.
ATAS is a professional trading
and analysis platform for order-flow and volume trading. It
performs all the functions required by order-flow and volume
traders. You will find a variety of tools and indicators that
are exclusively available in ATAS. With this platform, you no
longer observe markets from the outside, but from the inside -
you see the heart of the markets.
ATAS prepares the raw order flow data to present it to the trader in an intuitive form. The quality of the data is very important here. WH SelfInvest provides tick-by-tick data at an almost unlimited speed thanks to state-of-the-art technology. The range of functions offered by ATAS includes excellent filtering and configuration options. The platform's analysis tools considerably enhance the information extracted from the raw market data, providing a comprehensive view of market activity and, subsequently, improved trader performance.
The biggest enemies of order flow traders are algorithms, especially HFTs (High Frequency Trading Algorithms). The SmartDOM has been specially developed by ATAS to detect and analyze these algorithms. This tool is exclusive to ATAS.
The following features are available with this tool:
ATAS offers a wide range of chart types. It also offers 25 footprint functions, which allow data to be clustered. What does that mean? Each candle can be seen from the "inside". Volume, Bid/Ask and deltas can be displayed on each price of the given bar.
Orders can be entered in the Smart DOM and in the Chart Trader. With the Chart Trader, you can trade from the chart and also from the panel next to the chart.
It is also possible to automate the exit. This function is available in both the Smart DOM and the Chart Trader. In addition to the definition of stop loss and take profit, the trader can define the conditions according to which the stop is automatically followed.
