PriceSquawk integration

PriceSquawk is your audible trading assistant. By monitoring your reconstructed tape's order flow for you, you can focus on trade execution, market research or listen for trading opportunities from a fresh perspective.

PriceSquawk will provide full price action commentary, large trader announcements and trade sounds, as well as volume accumulation alerts derived from the Reconstructed Tapes time and sales.  

The audible perspective PriceSquawk provides keeps you focused on real-time order flow developments, and lets you monitor multiple correlated markets simultaneously for an edge. Use male or female speech for announcing prices, trading activity and volume, or use any of the built in sound effects for simple and effective buy and sell trade sounds and order flow alerts.



Various other tools are built into PriceSquawk to improve trader efficiency such as check-box Price Alerts, short term Volume Profile alerts and time scheduled alerts for raising reminders of number releases and opening markets.


PriceSquawk with the Reconstructed Tape:




As well as tape sounds and trade announcements, and the squawk, PriceSquawk monitors the flow of volume through the tape to keep you alert to liquidity conditions and buyer / seller participation. The following volume conditions can be used for raising three tiers of volume alerts, as well as filtering tape sounds and squawk commentary:


oRelative Volume – Using Auto Mode (

oVolume at Price -  Volume accumulates at each new price level

oVolume in Time – Volume accumulates over a time window (

oInside market volume – Volume accumulates for inside market prices

oVolume Profile – Fixed volume profile and relative profile to the VPOC

oInside Bid / Offer Volume – Volume as seen on the Bid or Offer
