Time and sales
(Redirected from Time and Sales)
Time and sales can be useful for gauging the strength and potential of a move to continue. For instance, if a chart shows a breakout from consolidation T&S can help show whether the interest in new prices is genuine or merely a stop run that will peter out swiftly. Large trades going through on the offer can be a good sign, whereas lots of small lot trades could be buy stops being soaked up by a large bidder who is selling in preparation for a breakout failure. Every situation is different but T&S can be a useful too for confirmation. The study of T&S is known as tape reading.
