  • Transaction Strategy tracks the trend of trend of buy or sell transactions by all
  • Major Event Strategy charts activity around a significant institutional transactional event.
  • Top Ranked Strategy displays what top-ranked insiders are acquiring or shedding.

Let’s take a look at stocks shown in one of those investing trends.
