Swing Trading Momentum and Velocity Runs

Indicators Signal Entries and Exits
Swing Traders need specific tools to help them choose the best stock picks for the fast-paced Swing Trading Momentum and Velocity Runs that occur, as stocks fall so quickly that Bargain Hunters move in. Bargain Hunting is the realm of the largest lot buyers and occurs mostly on the short term trend.
Sudden reversals with the right indicators can help confirm that the signal is a true momentum signal, and that the stock is poised for sudden momentum or velocity action. This is because Dark Pools quickly remove liquidity creating an imbalance between supply and demand that Professional Traders search for, in order to buy into the Momentum Runs that follow.
By employing one of the professional style indicators such as TechniTrader Quiet Accumulation TTQA, an early alert is shown on the chart as indicated by the green arrow in the bottom chart window.

This stock has fallen into a high of a prior Dark Pool Buy Zone™ price range. The zone or range is below the low of the white candle, but both TechniTrader Volume TT Volume and TTQA clearly show a sudden shift is about to occur. High Frequency Traders HFTs are still trying to sell the stock down, as Retail Traders sell short without recognizing the Shift of Sentiment™ has begun.
The next day HFTs drive the stock down in a few minutes after market open, so quickly that Retail Traders are unable to enter without extreme risk. The risk is that orders in the Dark Pool Buy Zone now trigger, and Time Weighted Average Price TWAP Dark Pool orders quickly move the stock up in the same day. 
The Shift of Sentiment on TTQA which is a professional style indicator, clearly reveals their activity before the stock runs with momentum. Volume is also a key indicator but in a different analysis.
This allows Retail Traders to trade with Professional Traders, who provide reliable and consistent run activity. Instead of chasing a run, Retail Traders are able to trade with the Profesionals. The consolidation is a period of resting. Professionals are taking profits while the Smaller Funds Volume Weighted Average Price VWAP orders are firing off creating the high bars on TTQA. Resistance is the red line drawn above price.
Summary
TTQA is a special indicator that has several different patterns which are easy to read and interpret. It can reveal aspects of who is in control of price, where Dark Pools are buying or selling, and when HFTs are likely to create big sudden moves.
It also shows Professional Trader and Smaller Funds activity. This new type of indicator can be an excellent addition to any Traders indicator tool kit but is particularly useful to Swing, Momentum, Velocity, and Day Traders.
Being able to plan an entry rather than chase a run, is a key ingredient to high income from Swing or Day Trading.
