In the second episode of our limited series with OrderFlow Labs, Fleri returns for an in-depth lesson on auction theory and how the markets move. Building on the homework assignment from episode #1, Fleri explains the power of TPO charts and how value is found in the auction process. He also lays out the framework for three actionable trade setups utilizing the information discussed today. Be sure to check out the examples in the episode description, as they will help with this month’s homework assignment!

About Fleri

Fleri began trading on the early crypto exchanges and with mid cap stocks before shifting his focus to futures and intraday trading. His work on ES, NQ, RTY, CL and UB is rooted in Market Auction Theory and tracking market participants through pattern recognition and confluence of Price Action and Order Flow. Fleri approaches his trading day by coming to the open with a plan of execution-able areas for the auction to potentially seek value while utilizing Order Flow and Price Action to capitalize on intraday rotations. His favorite Orderflow Labs study is Session Delta Pivots… The SDP levels offer an opportunity to lean into pullbacks and anticipate initiation from previous aggressive auctions while providing ranges for larger rotations.
