Trading with Market Statistics III. Basics of VWAP Trading

Recommended Posts

Could you not just encode these movies in .avi format which everyone will be able to play with installing dodgy files on their trading computer?

 

Yes, I could, but the file size might be prohibitive. The swf files are about a factor of 3 smaller than the avi files. I originally loaded these files as Camtasia exe files which anyone could open without a lot of fuss, but I received vociferous objections to that.

 

Suggest you send a note to Soultrader, about your request. I'd be happy to send the files in any format he would agree to. My first choice would be Camtasia files.

No one wants to be running executables on their trading PC. Why not just upload to filefront or youtube?

 

I did use filefront for a few files, but now abandoned that for uploading directly to this forum. Much less hassle.

There are several small pieces of software(other than Quicktime) that run swf files conveniently and easily as suggested by Thrunner in his post in this thread. I've tried swf opener and it works fine.

I hope we can stop the discussion about the video format and let Jerry help us as Soultrader is keeping on doing (thanks for allowing to place videos on your site to stay permanently available).

 

Notouch - you do not need to install anything, just do not view the files on your trading computer. From this point of view there is no difference between AVI and SWF - the trading computer is only for trading, if taken seriously even browsing and emailing can be dangerous.

 

Jerry - swf's are fine and the recommendation from Thrunner for those two tiny swf viewers are great. They are virus-free (I checked them both), banner-free, trojan/adware free, they have tiny memory footstep and do the job as expected. The FLV format is efficient (better than common AVI), virus free and platform independent (not like EXE).

 

Notouch - they are less resource demanding than M$ mediaplayer or Quicktime monsters, as well as the FLV format is more efficient than AVI as Jerry said.

 

Personally, I got rid of Quicktime a while ago since that was the really untrusted big monster which was instead of doing its job sitting in the background, full of annoying banners and upgrade popups and stealing data and bandwidth. You can hardly find anything worse than Quicktime (nothing against Apples effort, I do not hold short position of their stocks nor want to buy long cheap either - at least within few days, but their intention seems to be other than to create a good free player).

 

Let us focus on trading, this is why we are here and if I have to download !#$^ to be able to view interesting training lesson I would gladly do it!

NEWBIE is on roll. He now has the PVP , the VWAP and their relationship down pat. He keeps his entries simple by trading short when Price Action < VWAP < PVP and trading long when Price Action > VWAP > PVP. He wants to test his new found knowledge on other contracts, like the Emini NASDAQ 100 ( NQ ). So here is NEWBIES NQ trade for today July 18, 20007. Watch the video and see how NEWBIE does it.

Jerry,

 

do you calculate the standard deviation added to VWAP from price only or from the difference between VWAP and price? Both lead to slightly different results.

 

Thanks,

Nelo

The computation of the standard deviation is with respect to the VWAP. We will discuss the implications of this in the next thread, coming soon.

I cannot wait for the explanation how do you use the deviations and how do you identify when the trend is intact (and buy tops/sell bottoms) and when to trade extremes (sell tops/buy bottoms).

Is this something where VWAP / deviations can help (comparably as market profile does)?

Thanks.

I've started a thread on the use of the Standard Deviation of the VWAP in [thread=2101]Part IV[/thread] of Trading with Market Statistics.

Slow creep upward price action is difficult to trade under any circumstances.

 

Jerry can u please explain why this is the case with respect to trading with market statistics.

 

What makes it difficult to trade even with market statistics, is that the slow creep usually hugs one of the standard deviation lines rather than rotating between the SD's. As a result while you may have an entry point, you don't have an exit target that get's touched before you get stopped out.

Hi everyone,

 

Firstly, a big thank you to jperl for sharing his knowledge and creating all these great videos about vwap. I don't know if its just me but my laptop has problems playing the 'swf' videos. They are sluggish and stall. I have tried different players and looked to convert the swf's to another format but I have had no joy. I would be grateful if anybody has any advice on how to run these smoothly or how they can be converted or already have them in a different format.

 

Thank you

 

Regards

Joe

For all new members/guests.

 

re: playing the swf videos

 

I have tried all the players mentioned in this thread and in my opinion

the classic version of quicktime (v7.2) plays the videos the best.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards

Joe

    • Date : 29th November 2021. Market Update – November 29 – Omicron dominates sentiment. USD (USDIndex 96.30) recovers from Fridays slump (95.98), Stocks lost over –2.2% in thin half-day trading, Oil FUTS lost –13%, Gold slumped and Yields tanked (10-yr 1.482%) on a safe haven (JPY & CHF bid) risk off day. (and a strange carry trade bid for EUR). Weekend news, as Countries block flights and tighten restricts, but first Omicron cases in SA appear mild and hospitalizations have not spiked, has seen a bounce in sentiment and Asian markets. Pfizer suggested it would take 100 days to adapt new vaccine, if required. US Yields 10yr trades up 5.1 bp at 1.52%, after Friday’s slump. Equities – tanked in thin and short day on Friday USA500 -106.84 (-2.27%) at 45941 – USA500.F trades higher at 4639. USOil – collapsed to $67.08 – now up nearly $4 at $71.00. OPEC+ have delayed this weeks meeting by 2 days & likely to delay planned January production increases. Gold spiked under $1780, has bounced to $1795 but struggles to recoup $1800   FX markets – EURUSD now 1.1270, after a +125pip rally on Friday, USDJPY now 113.36, from 115.50 to 113.00 on Friday & Cable back to 1.3325. Overnight – JPY Retail Sales recover but miss expectations (0.9% vs 1.2% & -0.5% last time). European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is down -27 ticks, US futures are also in the red & the US 10-year rate is up 5.1 bp at 1.52%. Stock markets remained under pressure during the Asian part of the session, but DAX and FTSE 100 futures are up 1.2% and 1.3% respectively and a 1.2% rise in the NASDAQ is leading US futures higher. A part reversal of Friday’s flows then as virus developments remain in focus. Travel restrictions are making a come back and the services sector in particular is facing fresh pain, but as Lagarde suggested over the weekend, the impact of Omicron is unlikely to throw economies back to the situation at the start of the pandemic, meaning the overall situation has not really changed. We continue to see the ECB on course to end PEPP purchases on time in March next year, although developments will add to the arguments of those who want to keep the flexibility on the distribution of asset purchases at least for future emergencies. The BoE meanwhile may be postponing the planned rate hike into next year. Today – German regional and national CPIs, Eurozone Consumer Confidence (final), US Pending Home Sales, ECB’s de Guindos, Schnabel, Lagarde, Fed’s Williams, Powell. Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) CADCHF (1.00%) The risk-off collapse on Friday 0.7400-0.7200 has recovered to 0.7280.

    • USDJPY PRICE OUTFLOW IS DRAWN BY SELLERS BACK TO 114.840   USDJPY Price Analysis – November 25 USDJPY price outflow is being held back as a consequence of bears causing opposition to the market influence. The price structure of the market strives to maintain an uptrend configuration under a bullish influence. However, the sellers are causing some resistance in the market, which is causing a hold in the market configuration. Because of this conflict in the market, the outflow of the bulls in the market will be held back to the 114.840 critical level. USDJPY Critical Levels Resistance Levels: 114.840, 112.790 Support Levels: 110.800, 109.100 USDJPY Long Term Trend: Bullish The bullish outflow price structure initially began with the expansive breadth of consolidation. The market was birthed after a strong price expansion before the bullish uprise. The price undulated between the breadth of the 110.800 and 109.100 significant price levels. As a result of this accumulation, the price was then pushed out to higher levels. With the continuation of the market expansion, buyers outflow upward, with the bulls taking hold of the market. Furthermore, price continues to experience more outflows as several structural levels were broken. When USDJPY eventually gets to the 112.790 level, the price resumes its accumulation phase. The market encountered a short phase of expansion before resuming bullish persistence. The price finally breaks through the 114.840 significant level and we expect a withdrawal back to this price level before bullish engagement. The Tensile Strength indicator shows the resilience of the market influence as the market is set to resume its bullish leverage after sellers retreat. USDJPY Short Term Trend: Bearish The 4-hour chart of USDJPY shows the price configuration riding upward following a strong force that broke through the 114.840 critical level. The price is now set in a retreat motion as the price is seen to be pulling away to the 114.840 price level. The Moving Average Convergence and Divergence indicator shows the market’s prevalent direction as the price is set on a pullback course to the 114.840 critical level before bullish outflow.   Source: https://learn2.trade
