Order Imbalance

Order Imbalance strategy is mainly applicable to companies traded at the NYSE.

In the season of reports or when news important for the company are released, many major traders submit their orders before the opening of trading on the stock exchange, so that the orders are executed as soon as the trading is open. This leads to an imbalance between buyers and sellers at the time of trade opening, the greater the imbalance is, the greater is the deviation of the price and the potential profit.

The strategy requires very little time to prepare and conduct transactions, which makes it convenient if you have a tight schedule and you can not be around the computer for a long period of time.

The pros include having a sufficient amount of time to open a deal and wait for a solution.

This strategy is not similar to scalping or fast trading, so there is no need to get skilled for quick manipulation with orders.
