Is it possible to keep track of large orders on a stock?

I watched someone on YouTube and they keep calling out when there are a lot of large sell orders (stock trading).

Is he looking at the order book the entire time?

Or, is there some kind of indicator that can keep track of large buy/sell orders?

For example, he kept saying there are a lot of sellers in a certain stock but it was a stock that gapped up throughout the night and had a lot of volume. I thought it was going to be one of those low float runner stocks but it kept dropping and dropping. It's like the short-sellers at the beginning knew the stock was going to go down that's why there was such large sellers at the beginning.

It depends on what you're looking for, specifically. There are a few different options in ThinkorSwim. You can use the Trade Flash gadget, the Time and Sales, and Level 2. Basing off of what you posted, you may have to use a third-party service.

I didn't know they had 3rd party services for such things. Would you happen to remember any off the top of your head so I can do some research?

I'm looking into the other two things you listed right now.
