OFSF- OrderFlow Sequencing
The OrderFlow Sequencing Factor is a proprietary trading strategy, designed by a former iBank trader who worked at firms such as Bear Stearns, Swiss Bank, UBS and Sungard Capital Markets.
Similar to the Bloomberg TradeBook terminal used by trading architect, Kai Whitney and other institutional traders, the Institutional Money Flow (IMF) strategy is to track and record data, not indicators as to WHERE and at WHAT prices large players in the market are initiating business.
This information helps the trader clearly define risk and liquidity based on the same level of transparency historically only available at the institutional level.
Who uses Order Flow?
"You can win but you can't do it by trying to beat the pro's at their own game." - Hedge Fund Legend Ray Dalio of Bridgewater
"Big Money" "Insider trading", "Smart Money" are relative terms dependent on the market and instrument being traded. Big money includes: Governments, commercial traders, Institutions, banks, merchant banks and hedge funds. Essentially, big money is trading size that can create market imbalance. Tracking legal insider transactions will help you spot trades and trends before they begin reducing your risk and improving your reward.
See recent example of Insider Volume: Showing that keeping an eye on volume imbalance can give you a legal leg up as to how Insiders are quietly positioning themselves with no news.
Due to their relative trade imbalance, their positions and actions are easily recognized and tracked when using proper order flow techniques such as the OFSF strategy. Although professionals hide their covert operations, their size creates large imbalances in the tape over price and time when they enter and exit the market. These levels show up in the tape and allow the OFSF trained trader to join the institutions in winning trades vs. trading against them and continuously loosing.
Very few traders learn the simple logic of how and why price moves as it does in any market. And even fewer traders really understand how watching "big money" movement in a market can help catch trends earlier than your competition ... the trends that can potentially put a large amount of money in your account. With the Order-flow Sequencing Factor, traders can see exactly where large insiders initiate their positions in real time.
"Learn how to become and Insider. You need to know the rules of the game before you play the game. Otherwise, that person with experience is going to end up with your money." - Tony Robbins. Money is a game.
Order Flow Trading is an objective method of trading with roots going back to the early 1900's. The tape reading strategy takes some effort to learn and at the same time it's the ONLY way the market operates. It provides what traders call "market generated information", information that is both accurate, predictive and 100% transparent.
All Indicators including candle stick charts (YES! candle stick is an indicator) are a derivative of order flow. Therefore, day-trading based on indicators will always result in late "after the fact" trades that will require larger stops, and give you less consistency in your trading; hence the reason professional traders trade with order flow. Below is a list of why you should consider learning about order flow trading:

It's more important when reading order-flow to consider what you don't see, than what you do see. Our niche is that we focus on what lies beneath the visible market and who's taking the other-side of the trade.
I've been here for about a month now (completed the first 6 training modules so far) and just wanted to provide some feedback. So far, I'm VERY impressed.
The OFST is just mind blowing!! I seriously can't believe it. I've made over 200 points this week on the Euro trading for 2 hours each night at the most and I've only had a few losing trades of 5 points...
I have to admit, I was really skeptical that the claims Kai made in the webinar can be true. I heard the story of a “Wall street insider” thousand times and almost every time these promises can’t be backed with any true success. As I am very interested in the topic Order Flow, I also use a specific Order Flow trading platform, I thought I will test Kai's tools and method out. The first day of using the tools I was kind of lost, even with my Order Flow experience I can’t tell what the clue was. Sure, the tools worked well and I was able to read the market as I was with my Order Flow trading platform but that was it. The “ah ha” effect I was hoping to get was just not there. After 10 days or so I had a live training with Kai; well, that was a game changer. It was as if the curtains get lifted and you start seeing things you never saw before. The best thing about it, there are so many different ways to read the tape, so many trading opportunities, it is a joy.
Wow if you look at my charts from today you would think I put the levels in after the candles print they are so accurate. I promise they where there in advance. Thanks for the lessons on this subject as it has turned my trading on its head. I don't over trade I don't trade in chop and I only take trades where there is a good chance it will take off thanks to the levels on my OFST.
Hi Kai--I wanted to give you an update on how well my trading is doing since being in your room everyday and using your OFST. I have enclosed many snapshots of my results so you will not think this is a fluke. I get these results, NOW, on a daily basis, some better than other days, but always consistently a winning day as well as week as well as a month. I could not have accomplished these results without you, Kai, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart that you are taking the time to show us all really how easy trading is once you "see the Light" which you have shown me. I am now asking for your help to get to the next level in being a full time and Professional Trader. You have all the sources and contacts to get funding and introduce me to the right people and I hope you will in deed help me do that. I will definitely be with you in your prop venture starting next year but I am really ready now and I am very anxious to get started...
Kai, I Just wanted you to know that I’ve not had a losing day since adding the OFST information to my trading package.
"Kai, I have been looking for this very information for years. I knew there was a missing piece to my trading puzzle that would produce the consistent profitable results I hoped possible. I knew I needed to understand order flow and market profile and the footprint.
