Data mining large abstract data sets for useful patterns is an attractive proposition. It might, for example, reveal useful trading rules in stock market data. Perceptual data mining tools present the data to the user's senses (vision, hearing, touch) in a way that the user can search for useful patterns. This article describes the design of a new visual and auditory display for stock market data. The display is designed as a tool to help day traders detect new rules for trading depth of market data. An experimental evaluation of the display revealed that nonexperts could use it to predict stock price movements significantly better then by chance.
