Trading With Market Statistics.II The Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP).

Recommended Posts

Hi Jerry;

I am going through your threads for the second time to absorb the nuances of your method. :)

I have not found the topic that refers to "Old POC's or PVP's do get touched. "

I suppose that the HUP in section XI, is the proper location, but I find that the information presented there is limited.

I would appreciate your advise with respect to this topic.

 

Thank you.

Unicorn.

I didn't have much discussion about trading at Old PVP's except for the post in the HUP thread. There is a complete discussion of PVP trading at the[thread=2232] "Trading with Market Statistics VII: Breakout Trades at the PVP" [/thread]thread. In that discussion and in the HUP post, I point out that entering trades at the PVP is not a good idea. It doesn't matter whether the PVP is old or new, touched or untouched. The basic point is that if the skew is large, ANY PVP represents a dividing line between the high volume area and the low volume area. If you take a trade at the PVP in the direction of the high volume area and it turns out to be wrong, you can be wrong big time with a large breakout into the low volume area against your entry. If the skew is small (VWAP~= PVP), the volume is the same on both sides of the PVP. Then you might as well flip a coin. Bottom line, don't enter trades at the PVP, new or old. (This is in sharp contrast to the Enthios style of trading).

Hi traders,

 

if I can afford, you should not try to predict (as NTR) but to succeed in following tendency (as the skew and price).

 

Too, i agree with Jerry and i understand the difficulty of trades at the pvp or hvl.

 

The NTR as the Vpoc are speculations and a VSA trader should not take into account NTR, no ?

 

Cause, where the smart money goes, i will follow it !:o

Jperl;

 

That is indeed in direct contrast to the Universal method used by Enthios. What do you think about the NTR then? NTR: Natural Trading Range

 

The NTR is Enthios' estimate of today's trading range based on previous untouched POC's. I have looked at this concept but I have not found it of value.

I do have another question, that due to its relevance is posted at the Position Trading thread - section X.

 

cheers.

From what I have read so far it seems that too much emphasis is placed on POC, which in MP is not the main reference point (at least for trading purposes), rather the rotation and the distribution above and below it. Also, please note that according to MP authorities, like Don Jones of Cisco-Futures and others with a long time acquaintance with MP, distribution does not have to be in 30 minute increments. It can be daily, 10 or 20 days, monthly, etc.. The MP distribution is:

-more significant over longer time frames (say 3 days or more) and many software packages offer merging and splitting tools.

-the IB or initial balance varies from one market to another...but those time periods have always been important to traders. If you are on the floor you can hear the horn and look for some increased activity (a number of trades have been developed off these time periods). I've heard that institutions generally trade at certain times of the day; some of it may be adjust their positions, or it will sometimes be reacting to news.

- more significant are the times when MP moves or rotates and establishes a new balance area, hence the larger moves.

-granted there a subtleties throughout the day, and traders have been trying to optimize them to that end.

-but in general it is the reaction to extremes that gives us trades; the POC can be an unhappy place

 

It has taken some time to decipher the original MP studies and for traders to use of them, but we can thank those who have spent time doing so. And thanks to whomever started this thread. I think it looks promising.

The whole premise of the PVP-VWAP relationship for determining the skew is faulty. A positive skew on the vertical y-axis would be when the PVP is ABOVE the VWAP (vice versa for negative skewness).

scew = mean-mode/sd (Pearsons approximation) --- so VWAP-PVP determines sign/direction

 

if VWAP is greater (above) PVP it is positive (up)

 

if the VWAP is less than (below) the PVP then it is negative (down)

Hi,

 

I am running the Thinkorswim platform. Their VWAP has a setting that allows for time frame. Daily, Weekly, Monthly.

 

If I set it for daily I set the chart to 1 minute daily and then 1 minute weekly then the PVP is the same. But all of the other values, SD and VWAP are different. Why is this and what would be the better timeframe to use?

 

It seems using weekly would allow to hold trades after hours. Because on the daily, when the new time period begins, the standard deviations reset & are really small compared to the prior session.

malverd at this stage of the threads things are about the current days sample. (later Jerry Introduces some other concepts with larger samples). I don't know TorS but I'd try daily with 2 minute bars to try and get similar charts to Jerrys. Follow through carefully and later he talks about different settings for scalping and longer trades.

    • Date : 9th December 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 9th December 2019. *Following the OPEC meeting this week and the  surprisingly strong US payroll data, three interest rate decisions are scheduled next week. Other than Central Banks, the event of the week is the UK Parliamentary Election on Thursday. Monday – 09 December 2019 * RBA’s Governor Lowe speech (AUD, GMT 22:05) – Due to speak at the AusPayNet Summit, in Sydney. Tuesday – 10 December 2019 * Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – September’s Chinese CPI is seen unchanged at 0.7% while the PPI figure is expected to decline further to -1.2%. The overall reading for CPI is estimated to post a gain up to 2.9% y/y. * ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for October is projected at -27 from the -22.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -33.0 from -22.4. A lower than expected outcome, ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment at the start of the month. Wednesday – 11 December 2019 * Inflation Rate (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.2% November headline CPI rise is expected with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective October readings of 0.4% and 0.2%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 2.0%, up from 1.8% last month. Core prices should set a 2.3% pace for a second consecutive month. We expect an up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective.  * Interest Rate decision and conference (USD, GMT 19:00) – The FOMC is widely seen on hold even after the robust payroll data, with no shift in rate policy for the foreseeable future. Indeed, the data validated the pause and left policymakers in a state of Fed Nirvana, at least for now. Fed Chair Powell will reiterate the economy and policy are in a “good place.” There is little risk of any downside “material changes” in the outlook anytime soon given the solid path for jobs growth. And, GDP will likely continue to modestly outpace the official Fed estimates, just as a benign inflation trajectory caps risk of rate hikes from the Fed as well. Hence, the focus will be on the Fed’s quarterly forecast update (SEP) and Chair Powell’s press conference.  Thursday- 12 Decemmber 2019 * Parliamentary Election – Brexit will be a focal point with the December 12 election. While the Conservative party with a working majority is the clear odds-on favourite outcome of the election, the outcome of the general election is by no means a sure-fire certainty, however, especially in light of the predictive failures of pollsters and betting markets at elections in the UK and elsewhere in recent years. * SNB Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 08:30) – The central bank is widely expected to keep policy settings unchanged as ongoing uncertainty on the global growth outlook, along with weakness in the Eurozone economy, support the view that the central bank’s negative interest rate and the threat of ad hoc currency interventions remain necessary to keep the franc under control, and prevent inflation from falling. The central bank has kept the door to additional measures open as it keeps a close eye on geopolitical trade tensions and Brexit developments. * ECB Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 12:45 &13;30) – Lagarde’s first press conference. The “risk” is that it will be equally uneventful as her testimony before the European Parliament. It is very likely on Thursday, to be confirmed that: The ECB remains ready to act again and tweak all its measures if necessary, but has already done a lot and now needs to keep an eye on the side effects of the very expansionary monetary policy, while politicians need to do their bit to support the economy.The ECB won’t be reducing the degree of stimulus any time soon and we effectively see the central bank on hold through next year, unless there is a major change in circumstance. Friday – 13 December 2019 * Retail Sales and Industrial Production (USD, GMT 13:30) – A gain is expected up to 0.3% November for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures, following a 0.3% October headline with a 0.2% ex-auto figure. There’s considerable uncertainty, however, given seasonal distortions around the holidays, especially including Black Friday and Cyber Monday swings, and with six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
