The secret sauce is not to fixate on price action but to look for anomalous behaviour.  

“Our technology analyses the messaging data, not just the book of orders, and enhances this in real time with additional signals in a market context. The system is based on anomaly detection and identifying how far any market participant’s behaviour deviates from that of other market participants,” Soviany tells Euromoney. “That makes it different from many of the solutions from established vendors, which often operate on fixed rules, are very conscious of price movements and previous examples of market manipulation. They are less quick to detect new anomalies and emerging forms of manipulation, such as spoofing with cancelling of trades.”
