Put some elbow grease into this one, here is an updated thread on how I personally use @unusual_whales to help me find quality intraday set ups (WITH AN EXAMPLE).

Make sure to follow @snorlax_support for any support related questions you may have.

Let's get into it.
| Options Alerts 🚨|

Going through the options alert feed is extremely helpful to see what kind of unusual activity the 🐳may be picking up.

My Emoji Filters (Deselect all first):
- Ask Side
- Intraday
- Intraday/Week
- Bid Side
- Leap
- Index
| Options Alerts 🚨| - EXAMPLE

As we look through today's alerts, we see one fire for $AFRM $145 C 10/15 - Underlying: $137.31

We have:
OTM ☑️
Weekly ☑️
High OI ☑️
High Volume ☑️

These are all important because it shows short-term urgency as well as volume hitting early
| The Live Flow 🌊 |

The live flow is one of the most important tools @unusual_whales has to offer. It shows you real time options activity as its coming through.

I like to tweak the filters so we only see the flow that matters to us.

You can search your ticker, or multiple

Exclude deep ITM
OTM only
| The Live Flow 🌊 | - EXAMPLE

When we search our ticker $AFRM we pull up only it's flow.

The alert fired at 9:07am so we will check flow up until then.

As you can see the flow was incredibly bullish, all targeting OTM strikes

Chart had a 4 point move post alert
| Historical Flow 📜|

I use the Historical flow page for one main feature, the historical table.

One thing I love to see here is table divergence with current price action... What does this mean?

I want to see a drastic change in P/C ratio with little change in the underlying
| Historical Flow 📜| Pt. 2

If im looking for next-day plays, I really like a play who's underlying stays fairly stable, but who's P/C ratio drops by roughly 1/2.

This shows drastic change in the sentiment on the ticker PRIOR to a move (Usually)
| Historical Flow 📜| - Example

$OPAD Fri Sep 3rd - P/C ratio: 0.45
$OPAD Tue Sep 7th - P/C ratio: 0.09

Next few days we saw price run from $9.80 - $15.86
| Flow Levels 🎚️ |

The way I analyze the flow levels is pretty simple, I look for the peaks.

For all of them (1K, 5K, 15K, 30K) I focus on the nearest 1-3 Expiry and I check the strikes for the levels whales are targeting
| Flow Levels 🎚️ | Pt. 2

10/15 expiry we can see the 1K is slightly bullish, 5K roughly even, 15K and 30K bullish (big dogs wanna eat).

Where can the price run to?
Strikes targeted: $12.5, $15, $17.5, $20
| Intraday Analyst🔍 |

One of my favorite aspects of UW.

Here you see tons of information like Darkpool volume, Biggest options trades, Specific options chains with OI and Volume, price targets, latest news, and most active chains
| Intraday Analyst🔍 | Pt. 2

The biggest options trades table can give you a very good idea of which direction the whales want the underlying to move.

The most active chains can help you make a choice for picking your contracts by showing you which is favored by the majority
I hope this thread provided some clarity on the way that I use UW, my favorite aspects of the tools that I like, and potentially how you can use them as a part of your trading day!

Good luck and happy whale hunting!

A thread on how you can use @unusual_whales to find opportunistic day-trades

Example: $SDC

*Disclaimer: This will not always work, but if you find an edge and capitalize, you'll win more often than not*
1. Options Alerts
I start by going over the options alert page and looking for things that catch my eye. Some specifics I like personally would be:
- OTM strikes
- Volume > OI
- 1-2 week Expiry
- IV normally under 100 (This example is an exception)
Take a look at this $SDC alert
2. Historical Flow - $SDC
I head over to the historical flow of the ticker and analyze the table. Here I primarily look for 2 things (my preference you can disagree)
- Call v Put volume / Call Vol %
- Call Premium %
As you can see, this table was heavily bullish

Real talk for a second. So much of my motivation for the market stems from the desire to give back. All my life I’ve wanted to be able to change lives and help people take some weight off their shoulders. I’m not big on buying lambos and wearing Rolex’s, no hate to those who are
I’ve just always wanted to be able to have a nice meal and tip my waiter 5k. That connection with that person, that moment, is worth way more than anything you can buy. I pray I get to that point, it’s why I bust my ass trying to master this brutal game.
One day you’ll see me posting a photo on here surprising a family in need with a check for $20k. Mark my words. Won’t stop till it happens. Now just gotta get to the point where I take this full-time. It’s time to grind.

As promised, here is a thread on how I use @unusual_whales to help me find actionable plays.

Please note that these are TOOLS, they are not a magic perfect tool for you to get rich quick. There will be winners, there will be losers.
1. The Live Flow

I use this tool by far the most. Here is where I identify all of the big moving transactions happening in the market. I generally look for Strikes that are OTM and are weekly or bi-weekly expirations, this shows urgency.
Minimum Premium - For me, I set my minimum premium at $200,000

Emoji's - All selected besides Bid Side, ETF, Monthly, and Leaps.

EXPIRY - Nearest 4-5 Dates

Ask Side - ON
Bid Side - OFF
Exclude Deep ITM - ON
