I do not know how to distinguish buying from selling since, for every buyer there must be a seller
and vice versa. One way to get a clue, but only a clue, is to look at the Acc/Dist rating from IBD. A
implies that there are more buyers than sellers; E implies that there are more sellers than buyers. But
it is only an estimate, really.
Where do I find, and what is Acc/Dist rating from IBD?
What is IBD. Thanks
