My questions might be useful to people trading rather than investing. But I was thinking about looking at how share prices move based on news and events. I’m aware that it’s people’s reaction to the news rather than the news. So:
How do you see actual trades that have occurred recently? I know so many trades occur that it’s not really a useful metric but I like seeing when somebody buys/sells a really big amount. I’ve found websites like lse.co.uk which have a section showing recent trades for a stock. But it’s only maybe showing the last 10/15 trades. I’d like to be able to pick a period of time and see the trades that occured. London Stock Exhange website also shows a couple of trades but doesn’t seem to show whether they were buy or sell to my uneducated eye. I presume there is a better way to see this?
How is it possible to see out of hours trading? From what I’ve read on this forum trading can occur out of hours. And overnight trading will affect the price once the market opens? So how can you see if there has been a lot of buying or selling out of hours?
I read somewhere recently that Tesla is the highest shorted stock at the moment. How do you see if people are holding long or short positions in a particular stock? Surely this goes some way to showing sentiment?
