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.

    • Gold Is Trapped In A Narrowing Price Band Lacking In Directional Bias XAUUSD Price Analysis – February 14 Gold did not have a strong directional inclination and traded in a limited exchanging band around the $ 1,575 level during the early European session on Friday. The blend of separating powers couldn’t give any new catalyst or support the valuable metal to build up a positive shift of the previous session to the tops in a week. Key Levels Resistance Levels: $ 1611, $ 1595, $ 1585 Support Levels: $ 1550, $ 1540, $ 1517 XAUUSD Long term Trend: Bullish The metal has printed lower highs and higher lows since it reached $ 1,611.49 level in early January. This took the form of a tapering price band or a declining triangle. Marvin Steinberg und seine Sicht auf den STO-Markt: https://coincierge.de/2020/marvin-steinberg-und-seine-sicht-auf-den-sto-markt/ Admitting past the upper limit may mean the resumption of the uptrend from November lows of about $ 1455.70 level and may lead to a move past the recent high of $ 1611.49 level. XAUUSD Short term Trend: Ranging The day after a slight decrease in price, gold came back to the resistance region of $1575 – $1578 levels. With the RSI indicating a potential move higher, we could see some expansion in force. However, gold requires to get through the barrier zone to affirm further advancement and besides, it additionally needs to break past the recent highs to keep up an upswing.

    • Ripple (XRP) Starts New Uptrend, Battles Next Resistance At $0.34 Key Resistance Levels: $0.30, $0.40, $0.45 Key Support Levels: $0.25, $0.20, $0.15 XRP/USD Long-term Trend: Bullish On February 11, Ripple slumped to the low of $0.26 and rebounded as the coin reached a new high of $0.32. Before this time, the bulls have been finding it difficult to break the resistance at $0.28. Analysts are of the view that a break above $0.28 will push XRP to a high of $0.31. Today the market has reached a high of $0.34 but has pulled back to the support of $0.32. The upward move has been temporarily put on hold because of the minor resistance at $0.34. Nonetheless, the bulls have to make efforts to break the current resistance. From the price action, if the bulls succeed in breaking the resistance at $0.34, XRP will rally above $0.40. This is because there will be little or no resistance between $0.34 and $0.40. Therefore, we shall lookout for the next price between $40 and $0.45. Daily Chart Indicators Reading: As Ripple appreciated to a high of $0.32, the Relative Strength Index period 14 has risen to level 80. This implies that Ripple is in the overbought region of the market. The implication is that once the coin is overbought, sellers will be generated in the region to push the coin downward. Buyers are not available in the region to push the coin upward. However, in exceptional cases price will linger in the overbought region before the downward move. Marvin Steinberg und seine Sicht auf den STO-Markt: https://coincierge.de/2020/marvin-steinberg-und-seine-sicht-auf-den-sto-markt/ XRP/USD Medium-term Trend: Bullish On the 4-hour chart, the upward move was as a result of a bounce on the trend line. The rally reached a high of $0.34 but the price found support above $0.32. Thereafter the bulls made two attempts at the resistance without a success. The coin is fluctuating below the resistance. 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Ripple is trading below 80% range of the daily stochastic. This means that XRP is in bearish momentum. The coin is likely to fall. Meanwhile, 21-day SMA and 50-day SMA are sloping upward indicating that uptrend is ongoing General Outlook for Ripple (XRP) Ripple is currently fluctuating above $0.32 support but below the $0.34 resistance. The bulls have one more hurdle at $0.34 resistance to jump over. Ripple will be out of the downtrend zone if the bulls are successful above the resistance. There is also the possibility of a new uptrend as soon as the resistance at $0.34 is breached. Ripple (XRP) Trade Signal Instrument: XRPUSD Order: Buy Entry price: $0.33 Stop: $0.32 Target: $0.45 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.
