Measuring liquidity with


Real time liquidity

Measuring liquidity is usually either a time-intensive process or requires significant capital for the data, or both. Stuff that most people (like me) don’t have.

The reason for this is clear: measuring liquidity is a very potent and accurate way to measure the current and future price-action of an equity.

So, I did some math and created the Liquidity-Dependent Price Movement. It compares how much the price is moving with what it took to make those moves happen. From this, you can get a pretty good view of where the price is likely to go next.
