    traders at many different levels intersecting

    [...] the point here is that too many new traders are flatlanders they use only one chart to follow the markets. But there are traders at many different levels intersecting to make prices happen [...].
    [...]
    It is important to recognize and track the different levels of traders who collectively make the market.
    (Forex Essentials in 15 Trades; John M. Bland; Jay M. Meisler; Michael D. Archer)

    I suppose that 'intersecting' goes to 'traders', am I right?

    In case I am would the meaning change considerably if I re-wrote it the following way:
    But there are traders intersecting at many different levels to make prices happen.

    Thanks.

    Re: traders at many different levels intersecting

    I didn't read the book Flatland (interestingly, my daughter did for her freshman social studies class), so I'm not sure, but the way I read it, it's the levels that intersect, not the traders. Where levels intersect, there are traders there to... But I could be completely wrong.

    Re: traders at many different levels intersecting

    Thank you Barb_D.

    If it is the levels that intersect, wouldn't it be clearer if it were written "But there are traders at many different intersecting levels to make prices happen."?

    Thanks.

    Re: traders at many different levels intersecting

    Yes. But I don't know what the author means by "levels" in the first place.
