If you haven’t heard by now, about 40% of all institutional trading occurs in the dark.

And it’s off-limits to all retail traders

But I found a way to crack this secret society using a scanner that hacks into these dark markets and tells me what’s happening 

And I programmed it to sniff out some of the most interesting trades that come across these feeds

Which have landed me tons of triple-digit gains since I launched this service – click here to find out for yourself

But I hate how Wall St. can operate in the shadows unchecked like this and reap the profits for themselves 

So I came up with a way to get involved in some of these profits for myself

And now I want to shine light on these markets and make them available to you to get involved in

Don’t miss this just click here to find out which stock I’m targeting for my next triple-digit winner

 

Welcome To Dark Pools


When I first started trading I had almost no understanding of what Dark Pools were 

But when I heard this is where all of the Wall Street insiders traded and make millions, I knew it was something I had to learn more about

It’s time where I needed to figure out a way to trade the Dark Pools so I can pull down profits

And it has forever changed the way that I trade now that I see this hidden information.

But I can’t trade everything that comes through the dark pools.

I need to monitor and sniff-out the interesting trades from the rest of the pack.

And I created these 4 questions that I answer before every trade in my Dark Pool Checklist

My Dark Pool Checklist:

  1. Have I seen this stock trade in the Dark Pools lately?
  2. Is the dark pool volume larger than its average?
  3. Are there any large single dark pool trades?
  4. Are there any Intermarket Sweep Orders?

Now for me, I found that the more boxes that are checked off the list, the better signal there is for the dark pool scanner.

I know you are wondering what is an Intermarket Sweep Order.

An Intermarket Sweep Order is a special order type typically reserved for institutional traders and is considered an extremely aggressive order type

By having this trade information I can find the traders that are targeting a stock with a must-have mentality.  

And that’s extremely important when looking for stocks that are about to run higher in the future, since the markets are primarily driven by supply and demand.

 

How The Dark Pools Brought In Huge Returns In This One Stock

My goal is to get into trades following the dark pool traders and exit with triple-digit gains in just a few days!

And recently, WKHS didn’t skip out providing plenty of excitement in the last week.

From looking at the scanner, I noticed that WKHS was getting more trading action than usual.  

Something must be going on in this stock that has the hedge funds getting excited to put huge money into this stock

I started with these four questions that I had to answer first:

  1. WKHS is hitting the dark pools for the first time in a while
  2. The dark pool total volume seems to be in line with the average 
  3. WKHS is showing some large single block trades.   A dark pool block trade is when millions of dollars worth of stock trading are trading at single clips from large traders and hedge funds 
  4. Some of the dark pool block trades were also Intermarket sweep orders. An Intermarket Sweep Order (ISO) is an extremely aggressive order type used by hedge funds exclusively to find liquidity for a stock they want to buy

And after looking over my 4 criteria for a dark pool trade –  that’s exactly why I wanted a piece of the action in WKHS!

What I sent out to traders to alert this trade


And this is what the stock looks like when I bought the calls today.

Now shortly after I alerted this trade, it launched almost 50% from the time I saw this trade enter the Dark Pools and my options skyrocketed to 200% profits!

And I just exited this trade yesterday to lock in these gains.


Now I know you are thinking that I am involved in insider trading by tapping into these trades.

But you see, all this information is considered to be public information as soon as it hits any of the public records.  

And yes, this includes the Dark Pools!

Since these hedge funds and banks are putting their money to work in only names they have confidence in after spending time and money doing research, I feel they know more than I do about this stock in the future.

So if they are risking their millions to a trade they have put a lot of research towards  – I want to piggyback on their trade for my own profits!

And that’s exactly what WKHS did in the week following the signal.

I continue to monitor the Dark Pools for more and more of this trading activity every single day.

Now there are more stocks on my watchlist that I am tracking every day

And recently there is this one name that has caught my attention

This one stock is starting to pick up steam in the dark pools and I start reviewing my Dark Pool Checklist
