In comparison to other trading disciplines , Order Flow trading strategies does not contain that many trading strategies you can use. The explanation why, is because there is no proper order book available which you can use to see when buy and sell orders are entering the market in real time.
What is the idea behind the strategy?
Large traders cannot simply accrue or distribute positions whenever they wish to do so, because they would suffer from slippage. Slippage can have a great blow on your PL if you are one of the big players in the market.
Strengths: Scheme of large traders behind it, clear sentiment gives us the support of other participants , clear profit target.
What factors are giving my strategy an edge?
I only trade when sentiment is clear. I look for the market to cause buy stops during positive sentiment and when sentiment is negative, I target sell stops. If response is positive and price action starts to move accordingly , other participants will start to join the move.
There we have something we can before now work with. As has been mentioned, the markets are all about greed of fear. Even professionals with a long and triumphant track record will sometimes find themselves in one of those states. It is not preordained for us humans to be like robots, not even in trading. In combination with sentiment examination, try to incorporate some psychology. Regarding those without a position so far , it is all about perception. Where will key demand and supply be located? And then are those with a position on, what their target? Do they have sentiment in their favor? Which side of the market is the weaker solitary? Where are the stops of the weaker side? Some questions you can ask yourself and note in your journal. While those questions are not easy to answer sometimes, it is about keeping it simple by observing and taking notes. Your intuitive mind is capable of amazing things and you have nothing to lose by trying it.
Your best bet is to focus on key supplydemand zones on higher time frames that will likely be a magnet for the flow necessary to ignite momentum.

Fundraising using mail or alive! Business Articles | January 15, 2009
Ever wonder if your direct mail helps your charity? Are your fundraising dollars dropping. This naritive helps provide some simple insight on the impact of one letter to one donor.

Today , while I was checking my postal mail , I came across a beautiful child smiling face card with a title at the bottom of the card "Donate For Life". This card attracted my attention to read what's on its back, to find that it was issued as part of a huge fund raising campaign for a new pediatric hospital in my neighborhood!
I was really touched with their message and I felt that it is my duty to help. So I spent most of the day speaking and chatting with my work colleagues, friends and family encouraging them to help those children and trying to promote the idea that they should talk to their friends and families as well to promote the idea so that we can get as much people as possible to help
Sitting back on my chair at home at the end of the day relaxing while drinking my coffee, I was so happy by what I've done and also amazed by the energy I developed towards this fundraising campaign and how all of this was raised from just a card in my mail! One interesting thing was the enjoyment and motivation I experienced when talking about this cause.
Then I thought that what happened today was a perfect example of the power of the word of mouth marketing , over and above it was a perfect proof that postal mail marketing is still effective, powerful and might even be more powerful than email marketing if used correctly!
In my opinion the fund raising campaign management used very powerful yet very old way of communicating their message, which is promoting their message through a picture which already worth thousand words! Not only the postcard perfectly delivered the message but also enabled me to capture the beauty of giving and sharing even if my donation was humble but .
