The next thing to look out for is how an order off that size would have been made and how we could have had pre warning about it.

DislikedBut how would you know,when the orders of this particular deal would come through.I mean the timing of this? Isn't it to late by the time this sort of thing hits the public?Ignored
DislikedThanks man. 10 best bids/offers is too little, only good for scalping. I remember darkstar was talking about 20 or 25 pips each way.Ignored
