A Revolutionary Tool for Anticipating Market Movements

New York, January 9, 2024 - AbleMarkets, a leading provider of market microstructure data and insights, is pleased to announce the launch of its newest product, AbleSlice Hourly Liquidity Monitoring. This groundbreaking tool provides market participants with valuable insights into the liquidity dynamics of the market, enabling them to anticipate potential price movements and optimize their trading strategies.

AbleSlice Hourly Liquidity Monitoring offers a comprehensive analysis of buy and sell liquidity levels in the hours leading up to significant market returns. By examining the behavior of liquidity changes, both positive and negative, within two distinct timeframes (2-5 hours ahead and 1 hour ahead of significant market movements), AbleSlice identifies patterns that can inform trading, execution, and market-making strategies.

In the 2-5 hours ahead timeframe, AbleSlice's analysis reveals significant insights for market participants. For negative hourly returns (< -1%), the autocorrelations of changes in both buy and sell liquidity are found to be significant and positive. Additionally, the average changes in buy liquidity for the previous 5 hours are positive, while the average changes in sell liquidity for the previous 5 hours are negative. These findings suggest that buy liquidity is provisioned by market makers to meet sellers' demand and is accumulated over time to minimize market discovery.

In the same 2-5-hour timeframe, significant positive returns (> 1%) show a persistent occurrence of the following patterns: the average changes in sell liquidity are positive over the preceding 3-10 hours, and the autocorrelation of changes in both buy and sell liquidity is negative, indicating that the later changes in liquidity are turning signs. This reveals that the accumulated sell liquidity is becoming eroded by a significant buy order flow, which ultimately leads to an increase in market value.

Further analysis focusing on the 1-hour timeframe before significant hourly returns confirm the usefulness of AbleSlice Hourly Liquidity Monitoring. Immediately prior to hourly returns dropping by 1% or more in 1 hour, both the 5-hour autocorrelation and average changes in buy and sell liquidity show key patterns. The autocorrelation for buy liquidity averages 10%, while for sell liquidity, it averages 14%. Moreover, the average changes in buy and sell liquidity are negative, indicating an active consumption of buy liquidity by large sell orders.

Conversely, immediately before a sharp rise in hourly returns, the 5-hour average changes in sell liquidity are positive, despite the negative autocorrelation. This signifies the erosion of sell liquidity by a large buy order, which will impact the market price in the near future.

"The launch of AbleSlice Hourly Liquidity Monitoring marks another milestone for AbleMarkets in delivering cutting-edge market microstructure data and insights," said Irene Aldridge, President and Managing Director of AbleMarkets. "This product provides market participants with a unique advantage by enabling them to understand and anticipate liquidity dynamics, ultimately optimizing their trading strategies and capitalizing on market opportunities."
