Dynamic of Webull Level 2 Market Data

Unlike Level 1 where you can only see the best Bid and Ask prices and the corresponding shares, Level 2 Advance on Webull provides a deeper view of the market.

Thus, we can expect bigger moves compared to a stock where the movement of the orders is not as rapid.

How To Spot a Bullish Momentum on Webull Level 2

Whenever I am analyzing Webull Level 2 Advance market data on a stock I would Like to trade on the bullish side, my focus is on the bottom right hand side.

So a bullish momentum with great strength is confirmed when order number 9 and 10 start flashing higher and higher prices.

This means that the Ask prices are getting accepted and the stock is likely to sustain a great buying pressure.

In this scenario, the left hand slope (green line volume) needs to be higher than the red line slope as depicted on the second image above for QQQ.

How to Recognize Bearish Momentum On Webull Level 2

For the bearish momentum or selling pressure, the slope of the red line must be above the slope of the green line.

Such is the case on the first image.

Now, using the same technique as above, I am looking at orders 9 and 10 and need to see lower prices flashing in there.

Then we can anticipate that the price is likely to reach those lower prices should the selling pressure continue.
