Find Earlier Sell Short Entry Signals in Topping Stocks
Balance of Power Selling Short indicator patterns are often misread by TC2000 Users. This is because of the different Market Participant Groups who dominate during a downtrending market. Instead of all 9 Market Participant Groups as there is during an uptrend, the downtrend has only 3 groups that actually Sell Short regularly.
However, it is not those who are Selling Short that cause the stock to top. It is the Buy Side Institutions who are either using a Dark Pool Quiet Rotation selling mode to lower their inventory of that stock, or it is Dark Pool Quiet Distribution where they are actually selling the stock in order to place the money into another trading instrument.
Dark Pool Quiet Rotation patterns of the Buy Side Institutions are new to Technical Analysis, as these patterns only started forming as Dark Pool Alternative Trading Venues became more popular in the past few years. The complex Balance of Power formula in TC2000 requires more than just the basic reading of red is Dark Pool Quiet Distribution and green is Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation. Nowadays there are new order types, trading venues, and routing options for the Buy Side Institutions and Professional Traders. With automation, Balance of Power has become a far more useful and more informative indicator than it was in the 1990s through 2008.
The stock chart is an excellent example of how Balance of Power reveals the Dark Pool Quiet Rotation going on, that initiates the stall of the price action.
The Topping Candlestick Formation started out as a sideways pattern that rounded. Slowly as more and more Dark Pool Quiet Rotation and selling occurred, the stock trend succumbed to the large lot selling mode as fewer smaller lots bought the stock. The Shift of Sentiment™ to the downside is obvious in the Balance of Power indicator.
