One of the most common questions I get on a daily basis is how I use @unusual_whales flow to assist my trading. Let's get right into it.πŸ‹
(1/19) First things first, if you guys want to make an account...
1. Head over to unusualwhales.com
2. Click "Create an Account"
3. Use code "KaneCap" for 10% off.
(2/19) Unusual Whales' main purpose is to provide retail investors with unusual market activity, better yet, flow.

To dumb that down, UW provides us with options data from top to bottom giving us a better understanding of where the money is.
(3/19) One of the most important and main features UW offers is the flow tab.

Here we see the most recent option orders with respect to the filters you select.

The main data I like to analyze is the options side, strikes, exp dates, and premium.
(4/19) Filters:

UW also allows you to choose specific filter settings to narrow down the flow to exactly what you're looking for. You can find this option on the left side of the screen.
(5/19) Filters I use:

When analyzing flow I like to input a few filters.
1. Premium Range: At least 25k (varies per ticker)
2. Ask Only
3. DTE Range: 30 Days
4. OTM Only (varies)
(6/19) Why these filters?

I set my premium range to at least 25k because I want to focus on larger orders. A premium of less than 1k does not interest me (retail buyers).
Ask only to see what traders are currently in.
DTE Range: Personal preference.
(7/19) On large-cap stocks like $AAPL & $MSFT I'll set my premium range higher (75k-100k) than smaller cap stocks such as $SOFI, $DKNG, etc.
(8/19) Intraday Analyst:

I like to look at the IDA as an in-depth analysis of the flow that UW provides. How exactly you may ask?

1. Option Chain Activity
2. Flow Levels
3. Flow History
(9/19) Starting with Active Chains:

This chart shows which option chains are "Most Active" (most intraday volume). There is also a selection for chains with the highest OI. You can click the blue hyperlinks to be directed to that specific chain's flow.
(10/19) Volume vs Open Interest

To understand this data it is important to understand the difference between Volume and Open Interest.

Volume: # of contracts traded during a specific period of time.
Open Interest: # of contracts that are active or not settled.
(11/19) Something worth noting: Most of the time OI is higher than volume. Reason - At the start of the day, volume is reset to 0. OI on the other hand represents the cumulative # of all open contracts.
(12/19) Flow Levels:

To me, this page simplifies all of the information provided on the flow tab. I like to focus mostly on bullish v bearish premium and strike/expiry breakdowns.
(13/19) Flow History:

I usually use this feature in the morning with the idea of analyzing the previous day's flow, with respect to my filters, to see if the flow indicates anything from profit-taking to large buying orders at close.
(14/19) Now, onto Hot Chains & Tickers:

This feature is basically another added scanner for me. By knowing which tickers were the "hottest", the largest increases in call/put volume, I can add/remove tickers to my watchlist. For example ⬇️
(15/19) $SPY obviously has the largest call volume here (2.9M) but $TLRY is a name that pops out to me after seeing such a large increase in call and put volume (118%) & (158%). I would add a name like this to my watchlist, due to its massive increases in c/p volume.
(16/19) Flow x Trade

Last week I alerted $NVDA 262.5p live on discord for a +100% gain after pairing my TA with UW's flow.
(17/19) At the time of my analysis, NVDA had broken under a key support level and retraced back to the 8EMA where I entered looking for a rejection to new lows. When analyzing the flow, I noticed large bearish prints. Most of these are calls which points to profit-taking.
(18/19) After the analysis of this flow, I had even more conviction to enter the trade which went over 100% in less than 5 minutes.

Solid Technical Analysis paired with Unusual Whales Flow is an absolute game-changer.
(19/19) The bottom line is @unusual_whales has been an incredible platform and added conviction to my trading. I hope you guys enjoyed this thread, feel free to leave your comments and suggestions below. Let me know what you think! πŸ‹

$AAPL 172.5p +100% βœ…

Here's a thread recapping one of my 100% alerts today. An in-depth analysis of my TA, what I was seeing, and convictions to enter.
(1/6) Here's a 5m view of the trade.
As you can see we rejected 174.54resistance above and consolidated under vwap. The large upper wick rejecting at overhead support immediately turned my bias bearish at open.
(2/6) Last night I posted this chart stating how $AAPL tested 174.50 and a break under this level sees 173 quickly.

🧡Alerted $AMD 117p live in discord which ran for 820% at peak today
Let's take a look into what I saw and why I alerted this thanks to solid TA and @unusual_whales flow πŸ‹
(1/6) Here's a visual of what the trade looked like on the 10m chart. These puts were added after AMD broke through and confirmed under the 121.22 level. The next level on my chart to the downside was 177.66 hence why I chose the 117p Image
(2/6) When we gapped down this morning and opened up under 117.66 - the next target to the downside was 114 which I stated in the thread pinned to my profile we should see quickly.

🧡 $AMD mini thread (big one will be posted tomorrow)

Current levels I'm running right now on $AMD this is the 1h chart.
Another thing to note is a supply zone I have charted from 123.20 to 124.60. This is the shared rectangular area on the chart.
Today during power hour we entered this supply zone seeing a HOD of 123.71 and close at 123.23

🧡Quick thread on $NVDA - Little update from last night's thread which you can find in my pinned tweet.
(1/4) Here's a chart/illustration I made Sunday night outlining last week's $NVDA price action. Coming into the week I had 272.40 support as our major level to the downside and 285-286 supply zone overhead. Image
(2/4) Fast forward to today look where we found support before ripping to new highs...

🧡🚨As requested, a thread on my outlook and thoughts on $NVDA - Based on my TA and added support from @unusual_whales flow πŸ‹

$NVDA had insane movement last week so let's get right into it.
(1/19) First and foremost here are the Fibonacci Retracement levels (1D) I've been using in this current trading range. We broke over the high of this fib range early last week but these levels have been money so I'm keeping them up till/if NVDA sees north of 290 and consolidates
(2/19) This retracement is drawn from the 2/10 HOD of 269.25 to the 3/8 LOD of 206.50.

I want to point out that, at first, this chart may look hectic w/ all the different price levels, but over time as you get used to plotting fibs it should get easier to read & comprehend
