BlackBoxStocks gives you the whole picture!
BlackBoxStocks is a powerful tool designed to give you a complete view on big stock and options moves. Below is a perfect example of how we combine stock data, options data, and news to give the full story behind the trade!
New Feature – Dark Pool trade data
The latest addition to the BlackBox platform is our new Dark Pool trade data. This is another example of our continuing effort to add value to the platform and give you more insight into market activity. This new Dark Pool data is displayed in the general Alert Stream. We are now displaying large block prints and identify those that are likely to be Dark Pool trades. Further, we have added an Unusual Dark Pool Activity alert when a stock has an unusually high level of Dark Pool trading activity! In the next few weeks we will add functionality to enable users to sort the various Dark Pool criteria within the alert stream, including Dark Pool data and alerts. This will allow users to see the Dark Pool alerts in real-time!We have also added a feature that identifies what the industry refers to as Signature Prints (labeled SP in the Alert Stream) on the SPY, IWM, QQQ and DIA. This is often an indicator that large funds traded these ETFs the previous day. A large number of these prints can indicate a shift in market momentum. We will provide more information on these shortly.
Not seeing Rapid Decline alerts or Top Decliners?
Due to the risk involved in shorting stocks, our Rapid Decline alerts must be activated separately in order for them to appear in the Alert Log. To turn on these alerts, go to Account, My Settings, then check the ‘Show Rapid Decline Alerts’ box. Activating these alerts will also add Top Decliners to the BlackBox NASD/NYSE stocks page.
Wondering what all of those alert colors mean?
A full description of our alerts, acronyms, filters, and data tabs, is located in the Log Keys!Stock Alert Log Key
To access the stock alert key, simply click the “?” next to the ALERT LOG (on the NASD/NYSE tab).

Options Log Key
To access the options key, simply click the “?” next to the OPTIONS title (on the Options tab).
