1. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

As per the instructions provided by romanus, my comments referred only to the specific context provided in the chart he posted. However, with respect to your specific question, in the example provided by romanus, such a thing is simply not possible. - Spydertrader

4. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Nice plan to annotate the Points 1, 2 and 3. See attached. - Spydertrader

7. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

When presented with a situation (problem) where no clear solutions appears to exist, I often encourage people to look at said situation from an alternative point of view. Yes. No. - Spydertrader
8. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

I encourage you to change from Candlestick Charting to Bar (OHLC) charting. - Spydertrader
9. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Attached, please find an over view of 'the bigger picture' as Volume moved Price from Point One to Point Two and from Point Two to Point Three. After reaching Point Three, Volume moved Price in the direction of the 'bigger picture' FTT (until we ran out of day). All one need do now, is 'nest' the various faster (than the 'bigger picture') Gaussians within the Price and Volume Containers in an effort to learn what must always take place before a specific order of events has completed. One can go as far down the rabbit hole as one wishes. - Spydertrader
10. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

If you logically think this through, you'll realize you already know the answer to this question. All trends overlap at the FTT (Point One). No Trends overlap at Point Two. Ocassionally, some trends overlap at Point Three (what Jack and Neoxx discused as "the golden triangle"). What Volume Sequences cause Price to move from Point One to an FTT? What Volume sequences push Price from Point One to Point Two? To Point Three? Once one arrives at an FTT of a specific fractal, then the non-stationary window (for that specific fractal) has closed. As such, 'sequences' are not shared in the fashion your question specifies. - Spydertrader
11. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Correct. If one becomes confused when attempting to determine Dominant vs. Non-Dominant, I simply provided an alternative method for differentiating how a Lateral Forms. Otherwise, one need not even pay attention to it. - Spydertrader

13. ## End of day software with screener for stocks/etf's

Trade Navigator has an EOD scanner with numerous 'built in' settings - plus the ability to 'roll your own' criteria using both technical and / or fundamental data. While I no longer trade equities, I wrote a fundamental scanner for The Trade Navigator Software Which is avilable free of charge. My point isn't that you might find the fundamentals scanner I wrote useful, but rather, I'm not a programmer, and I found it quite easy to create that which I needed. As such, anybody should be able to do it as well. HTH. - Spydertrader
14. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Then name the differences anything you like. Up / Down, Left / Right, Goat / Hedgehog or whatever other binary pattern suits you. The vocabulary isn't nearly as important as recognizing a subtle difference in the object itself (at this point in time). For example, the first example of a Lateral (today), moved in the opposite direction of the previous bar (Note, how I did not use Dominant nor Non-Dominant here). Whereas, yesterday's examples formed in the same direction as the previous bar (to the actual lateral). Clearly, such a thing would represent a subtle difference. At some point in the future (once you do have a better handle on Order of Events), you can always change the vocabulary. - Spydertrader
15. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Seriously, folks. This ain't that damn hard. Start with a Sym pennant. At some point in the future another Bar creates a Lateral boundary with Bar 1 of The Sym Pennant. Said Bar does this to the Dominant side of the formation, Non-dominant side or Both. No limit exists between Bar 1 of the Sym and the bar which creates the lateral boundary as long as no bar between the two exceeds the extremes of Bar 1 of the Sym. Now, you have a set of Laterals on which you can place your focus. Laterals which form in a different way, you can differentiate at another point in time. For now, act as if they do not exist. We now have a group of Laterals where we can easily differentiate. 1. Bar 1 Direction - Dom vs Non-Dom 2. 'Forming Bar' Lateral boundary - Dom vs Non-Dom Side 3. Volume (all bars) If it helps, you might try sketching things out on paper in an effort to 'see' the various situations which develop. However, do yourself a favor and start with a Three Bar Formation before moving onto any other types. Doing so, you'll soon see how many of the possible permutations do not have any effect in the overall outcome. Once you can see the various situations, you then focus on Order of Events (noting any differences from one situation to another). For example, the lateral which formed today beginning with the 11:10 Bar began at a completely different point along the continuum than 'Ezzy's Lateral.' Lastly, everyone needs to spend some time focusing on context in an effort to understand the differences which exist here. The end result of all this is you'll know (each and every time) based on the current context, and the current Order of Events, and finally, the actual formation of the Lateral itself exactly what Gausian Annotation the market has indicated for your chart. As such, you'll know what must come next with respect to the specific action required of you (the trader) - hold or reverse (if already in the market) or enter or wait (if you are sidelined. - Spydertrader

18. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Three individuals have (thus far) posted the correct answers. Hopefully (by now) everyone can see how each of these correct answers form in the exact same fashion - irrespective of the number of bars contained within it the lateral itself. Now, that we can see the similarities (ensuring everyone is speaking about the same object moving forward), we can begin to learn to spot the subtle differences which indicate exactly what the market wants us to know. However, before we head down that road, I encourage everyone to review the thread beginning with this post until now. I think you'll find the results of your review quite enlightening. - Spydertrader
19. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Incorrect. You see. You believed you had this down correctly, but not quite 100% accurate. Hopefully, it now makes sense why I didn't want you moving forward prior to completing this portion. - Spydertrader
20. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Read, the response S ------ L ------- O ------ W ------ L ------- Y. - Spydertrader
21. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Seven Examples (Final Step in Similarities Section). See attached. Which Laterals listed comply (meets with the test provided) with those examples which exist in The Lateral Formation Drill? Why or Why not? - Spydertrader
22. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

I did not say this. You are one step beyond where you need to be at this particular point in time. Unless and until one finishes the similarities step, one cannot move to the subtle differences step. You have yet to indicate you have fully grasped step one (although it appears you are almost there). As an analogy, when you reviewed the "Seven Cases" post (about how to draw tapes using adjacent bars), did you see direction on those bars? Or, were all those bars without opens and closes? - Spydertrader
23. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Review my answer. My response to you should indicate the following ... "While yes you did accurately assess the individual particulars of the area under discussion (decreasing volume, dominant direction, etc), you did not in your post (which listed three reasons for knowing the direction of Lateral exit), provide the additional (hence my use of "more than three [that you provided] reasons") pieces of information (context and order of events) one should know prior to reaching a conclusion about this specific event. In addition, you have not yet completed the process of understanding the simiarities of this specific type of lateral, nor have you fully reviewed the various subtle differences which would allow you to accurately see all the various information provided by the object itself. As I result, I recommend avoiding reaching any coclusions which take you outside the current area of discussion." [end translation] Step by step means finish one step before moving to another step. - Spydertrader
24. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

I encourage you to remove the arrows from your examples. We have not yet looked at the direction as part of the prcoess of similarities - direction of the Bar , however, may represent an important subtle difference. - Spydertrader
25. ## The Price / Volume Relationship

Correct. However, try saying it this way ... "TIKI's second example does comply because it has a bar which creates a Lateral boundary with Bar 1 of the Sym." Perhaps, you'll find the above verbage easier to 'see' in your minds eye (and on a chart). Great. Dominant Boundary, Non-Dominant Boundary and Both Dominant and Non-Dominant Boundaries. Easy as that. - Spydertrader
