Wiseguys are the pros in the know, whether they’re fund managers, traders within a broker-dealer, or some other institutional player.

They always know more than you via proprietary analytics, dark edge, special order types, and personal relationships that provide them information the market doesn’t have (don’t ever let anyone tell you the market is a level playing field).

They also trade in an exponentially larger size, which means they can move markets.

We track Wiseguy activity because it’s a very strong indicator as to where markets are going next, and unlike many forms of market analysis, not many traders do it well.
