Trade Ideas LLC, a provider of real-time idea generation and market scanning technology, today announced NASDAQ Market Velocity and Forces® has been integrated into its market scanning platform, giving end-users the ability to measure levels of pre-trade order activity in the NASDAQ® trading system. As a result, Trade Ideas LLC end-users can receive trade ideas that gauge buy and sell interest in specific issues as well as compare expected order activity with the current activity before the actual trade occurs.

Velocity and Forces allows end-users to:

  •     Measure pre-trade order activity on NASDAQ-, NYSE- and AMEX-listed securities;*
  •     View the ratio of buy to sell orders in the market; and
  •     Determine the momentum of trading interest and the relative buy and sell pressure on the market versus a historical average.

“NASDAQ OMX is the world’s largest exchange company and one of the largest liquidity providers in all stocks listed on U.S. exchanges,” said David Aferiat, Managing Partner at Trade Ideas LLC. “This unique data stream helps professional and individual investors see a clearer picture of what is happening to any equity, exchange-traded fund or index that meets their definition of what’s interesting.”

Brokerages who do not have the research and development budgets or time to create a sophisticated, industry-leading alert and filtering platform may now easily access the data via Trade Ideas’ software.

“This is the perfect combination of technology and delivery,” says Dan Mirkin, Senior Managing Partner at Trade Ideas LLC. “NASDAQ OMX’s market data allows us to tap into, filter, and give our customers a unique advantage in implementing successful trading strategies.
