Empirasign Visualizations of TRACE Customer Buy/Sell Data
How to interpret these charts: Each day's customer trading volume as reported to TRACE is plotted as point. The five most recent trade dates in the charted range are rendered in red. Customer buying volume is measured on the X axis. Customer selling volume is measured on the Y axis. A day where customer buying and selling is in balance will be represented as point falling on the 45 degree line radiating out from the origin. This line is rendered in green on the chart. A period of heavy selling will show as most points appearing in the upper left region of the chart. Conversely, a period dominated by customer buying will be represented by most points falling on the lower right portion of the chart. Mouse over any point to see the trade date and total volume (Customer Buys, Customer Sales, and Dealer to Dealer Trades). As an outlier removal process, only Principal and Interest Trades are plotted. No IO/PO activity is charted.
