Hi there Lance. I am a quiet, though long-time viewer of yours. Long-time fan. I was also trading in JB's room back in 2014. Question though, how do you know these big block orders aren't "come-n-go"? Do they not, in most cases, sell their shares, and trade it for a profit in only a matter of hours or days?
Then, instead of buying long stock on these types of underlyings, would you prefer buying out-of-the-money Call Options? Although, I have to say, the longer term options have very wide markets, roughly .20 cents.
Thanks Lance. Rock on man I love your stuff.
I use the institutional trading metric in Finviz to look for a positive change in institutional holdings over the last 3 months. Then, I zoom in on big down days and look for large block orders, I mean really large block orders, that would suggest institutions are continuing to accumulate on pullbacks. There are active institutional traders with HFT desks, or quant desks that do trade in shorter time spans. There are also longer term, accumulate on pullbacks, institutional traders and money managers that are managing a slower moving and very large portfolio. But I wouldn't argue with anyone who disagrees with whether those block orders are institutions or not because they are VERY secretive and so the best we can do is guess. This is what I think of as the gut-feeling or subjective art of trading where we're reading tea leaves or block orders trying to figure out what institutional traders are doing.
There are 3 major pitfalls with reaching consensus around the outcome of an event.
These fully specified, manipulation resistant, and publicly verifiable events form a necessary foundation for sound prediction markets. Without this foundation, prediction markets are subject to confusion, manipulation, and abuse. Though sometimes tricky, many prediction events exist that satisfy all of the criteria listed above. As the world moves forward into the realm of decentralized prediction markets, it will be important to keep in mind the pitfalls associated with many naive prediction events.

Capital Markets Blockchains Are Finally Getting Go-Live Dates.
Assembled in New York this week, a handful were even confident enough to give firm timetables for production. For those tired of blue-sky talk, it was refreshing to hear large-scale financial infrastructure projects discussed openly and frankly, in clear terms of where they are and when we can expect to see things going live.
Underscoring the seriousness of the undertaking, ASX recently produced an 87-page progress report. Roll-out is targeted for late 2020 or early 2021.
In the weeds.
The enormity of such a project may not be obvious to those unfamiliar with the creaky plumbing of the capital markets.
At the completion of phase one, DTCC will have nodes set up internally for every firm that it knows will run one, plus some general nodes that will take care of supporting the transactions and processing for the firms that do not wish to support a node of their own.
For this project, DTCC has taken a multi-vendor approach. Ethereum-inspired startup Axoni is providing the technology, with IBM helping to manage the project, and R3 providing best practice guidance on areas like selecting the right data models.
Luxembourg is the largest fund management hub outside of the U.S. The jurisdiction holds many trillions of dollars worth of assets under management.
