Trading with Market Statistics X. Position Trading

Recommended Posts

I don't know if I will have the time to post more videos on these topics.

 

No need for videos Jerry. They are indeed time consuming.

Plain charts (figures), such as end of day snapshots, and a couple of lines with your comments will do.

 

Take care.

I don't know if I will have the time to post more videos on these topics. Each one takes a considerable amount of my time. I have posted over 15 videos and 10 charts in these threads dealing with market statistics. There is of course considerable room for further expansion. But the basics are here for all to use. When there are topics related to this that I deem important I will make additional posts.

 

Hello dear Jperl, thank for your anwser. I can certainely understand that making these videos should be time consuming a lot. I think the key is to look at them over and over and one can get a very good grasp of their utility.

 

Appreciate all your efforts very much

 

Sincerely

Hi Jerry.

 

Thanks for all your insight, very much appreciated. I have been able to review most of the videos with the exception of this one on Position Trading. For some reason this is the only video that shows nothing. Is the link broken? Can someone repost as an attachment so I can try again?

 

thanks a million

I was afraid this was going to happen. A few attachments broke during our upgrade. I was able to recover 99% of them but seems like this one may have been affected. I will see if Jerry can repost this if possible.

Sorry to bother you again but I tried the new attachment and everything worked fine until exactly 12 minutes 0 seconds (in trade as seen on the DOM). After that the video just stopped. I've tried it on two different machines, one with Vista and another with XP.

 

Can someone confirm this? Video is stuck in the trade, no exit! The suspense is killing me.

To be specific Position Trading Video is stuck at Frame 5212 of 6190

 

I also now noticed that HUP Trading Video is also stuck, at Frame 5797 of 6172

 

I have no problems with any other videos.

 

 

thanks

 

JustLurkin, thanks for the heads up on this. I've reported the problem to James.

In the meantime, if you have any other format of the same 2 videos, I'd like to try those, if you don't mind.

 

thanks

Sorry justlurkin, I don't. It's not a format problem. I checked the swf file on my machine. Runs fine. So I reuploaded it. Problem still persists. Appears to be at TradersLaboratory's end.

James is working on it.

For what its worth, both files are exactly 16384KB in size. It would seem that there may be a limit where the excess is truncated on the site somehow. The attachment link shows larger than this size. Exactly 0xFFFFFF is highly unlikely for both files.

Hi guys,

 

To resolve this issue, I have built a filehosting system directly into our site. Please use the top navigation button "File Share" for uploading of any large files up to 40mb. This should solve any future issues. Thanks

Jerry, I think you'll need to re-upload the last 2 videos using file share. It will give you a link to cut and paste here so we can download them.

Just wanted to show a nice set-up via Jperl's position trading idea.

 

The first chart simply shows the volume distribution for Friday. You can see that it does appear to be symmetrical. This is confirmed when we look at the second chart and find the VWAP and the PVP are equal. On the second chart the PVP is in yellow and the VWAP aqua. If you look closely, you can see the yellow of the PVP label, but the line cannot be seen- it's underneath the aqua.

 

Let's look at the set up using what we have learned.

 

1. Since the day ended with a symmetrical distribution, we know that for this to continue price must trade down to (and possibly below) the VWAP. Therefore our trade idea would be to trade towards the VWAP. As price is above the VWAP, this would be a short trade and a counter trend trade.

 

2. As it happens price has closed at the 1st SD of the VWAP. Leaving the VSA out of the mix, we can see that the last bar is an up bar that trades thru the 1st SD. According to the Shapiro Effect, we could therefore go short on the first bar that trades lower than the low of this bar. Our Price target would be the VWAP/PVP.

 

3. If price moves up, we would still be predisposed to take a short trade at the 2nd SD. Again, if the distribution is going to remain symmetrical (and there is really nothing that says it must) price needs to trade down to the VWAP. More exactly, for the VWAP and the PVP to remain equal, price has to trade down to the VWAP.

 

There are 2 places where this trade can play out. The "soft" open. This is the open when the market starts trading again on Sunday night. The other place is the "hard" open, which is around 0200 EST when London comes on line for the week.

 

If I understand correctly, the place for a stop would be somewhere above the 2nd SD. This is because the trade is still valid at the 2nd SD. Personally, I do not like that. There is another HUP just above the 1st SD: the 2nd standard deviation of a 3 day VWAP. This is where I would place my stop.

 

I will just note that while it is hard to interpret the last few bars of a Friday, we do see low volume up bars and a squat. The last bar on the chart is No Demand and this looks good with what the statistics might be pointing to.

 

If you were to be trading multiple contracts, you would want to take some off at the WVAP and then hold some whith an eye towards the 1st SD below the VWAP. If price moves up to the 2nd SD first, you would want take some off at the VWAP and target the 2nd SD below the VWAP as you ultimate target.

 

Hopefully, Jperl will let me know if I have this correct.

...There are 2 places where this trade can play out. The "soft" open. This is the open when the market starts trading again on Sunday night. The other place is the "hard" open, which is around 0200 EST when London comes on line for the week.....

 

Results:

 

As the Forex traders amongst you know, the "soft" open or low volume time of the Sunday evening open is really not a good time to be trading. The London open has much more volume is when the BBs really come into the market. With that said, here is how things worked on the soft:

 

Chart 1

 

We opened up and were not brought in to the market at SD1. Eventually we get an entry at SD2. This comes after we see some supply enter at SD3. But that is VSA so pay no attention to that. An entry at this point doe lead to us being stopped out.

 

 

Chart 2

 

The "hard" open. The hard open is when London starts trading. It is usually at 0200 EST but sometimes we observe increasing volume prior to that time which serves to alert us the BBs have come to play. Note on this chart that we have a pure Shapiro Effect entry about 8 minutes before the 0200 hour. Our stop is placed at SD3d3 which is the third standard deviation above a three day VWAP.

 

Chart 3

 

It does take some time, which is why Jperl calls them position trades I believe, but our profit target is hit roughly 100 pips later.

 

If you were starting your day with the "hard" open, then you would of course only have made this trade. Depending on the number of contracts, you could take some off the table here and hold some on for a possible move down to SD-1. And again, if the distribution is going to remain symmetrical, then a move down to SD-2 would be in order.

Hi Jerry,

 

If you set up the previous days chart with the volume distribution and vwap could you also set up a current day that is developing, lets say a 1 minute chart with Vol dist and vwap along side? This way if price is coming back to the vwap would't the current developing 1minute chart already show a negative skew and you can get in sooner?

 

Thanks,

Indeed you can tradepro. It is to your advantage to have previous days VWAP and SD's on todays developing distribution. This is discussed in some detail in the HUP thread.

The problem of course is how many HUP lines do you want to deal with. Too many HUP lines will simply confuse you.

Jerry, thanks for your wonderful thread. i have been using market statistics and I am learning everyday since I started reading your thread. I have a few problems though that I was wondering if you can answer me.

I use Zenfire with Ninjatrader and there are two VWAP indicators that have been programmed and are avaiable for everybody. My problem is when I change the interval on the chart from let's say 30 min to 5 min, or 1 min that the VWAP changes value and as far as I undestand that should not be the case right? The second thing is that my PVP changes as well when I change the interval. So I just wanted to confirm with you that this should not be the case and I got a problem then and cannot trade with this tools right?

 

Thanks, M.

Id like to offer a thought if it’s ok. Correct, the values should not change when changing intervals If the start time remains the same. Check where the plot starts on the smaller intervals (more bars on chart) and see if the start time differs.

The most likely problem is the approximation used to compute the VWAP as well as the histogram. Ideally, the VWAP should be computed from data for every trade. In practice this is not done. As a good approximation, the VWAP is computed from the price of every bar and its volume. The error in this approximation gets larger the larger the time frame of the chart. As the time frame of the chart gets smaller, the error diminishes. So if you compare a 30 min, with a 5 min and 1 min chart you should see the VWAP converging to the "correct" value.

    • Date : 10th April 2020. EURUSD Turns Higher | April 10.EURUSD,H1The EURUSD closed at a six-day high (1.0928) and above the 20-day moving average for the first time in 9 days, yesterday ahead of the extended Easter holiday weekend. Action from the Fed, helped weaken the Dollar and action, from the EU supported the EUR. Today the pair continues to track higher in extremely thin markets and very low volume to 1.0945. Next resistance is the upper Bollinger band at 1.0955 and R1 at 1.0973 with the Daily pivot point sitting at 1.0906 above the psychological 1.0900. The Daily chart has resistance (50-day moving average and 38.2 Fibonacci level at 1.10970 and then the 200-day moving average and 50.0 Fib level at 1.1070, before the 61.8 Fib at 1.1180. Immediate support sits at 1.0900, the April low at 1.0775 with the March low sitting at 1.0635.The Fed announced new unprecedented facilities to deal with the coronavirus and the containment policies that have largely shut the US economy. Under these new measures, which include programmes to support state and local governments, as well as small and mid-sized companies, the Fed will provide up to $2.3 tln in additional aid. The Dollar got hit across the board as a result, leaving this a case of USD weakness as opposed to EUR strength. Brave new world.The EUR also received a lift as European Finance Ministers agree financing of joint virus response. The immediate support measures focus on three pillars.   First a EUR 100 bln (or around 0.7% of EU GDP) employment re-insurance – SURE – designed to support wage subsidies, for furloughed workers and self-employed. This measure will not just help those temporarily laid off, but also help companies to keep on trained staff through the lockdowns and thus lay the ground for a quick restart of production and work once lockdowns are being lifted. The European Investment Bank (EIB) will also provide EUR 200 bln liquidity to support small and medium sized companies, in countries where support is limited. These are loans and costs will only be realised if they are defaulted on. The last part of the package – focused on the Eurozone – are EUR 240 bln of credit lines to sovereigns that will be provided by the European Stability Mechanism (ESM). Unlike the original bailout funds, for which the ESM was set up, these will come with very few conditions attached. The only condition is that the funds must be used to cover direct and indirect health , cure and prevention related costs. The ESM is jointly backed by Eurozone governments and offer a sort of “Eurobond-light”. The ESM always offered the best way to jointly fund a direct response, as a new “Coronabond” or “Coronafund”, would have taken a long time to set up and faced additional legal hurdles at national level. The use of the ESM also paves the way for the ECB to use the OMT program – if necessary – to support the funding. All these measures cover the initial response to the challenges of locked down economies and the European Commission will be setting up investment programs financed through the multi annual budget to support the recovery once lockdowns have ended, in addition to measures already agreed.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Breaches More Resistance Zones, As Bulls Gain More Grounds Key Resistance Levels: $275, $300, $350 Key Support Levels: $200, $160, $120 BCH/USD Price Long-term Trend: Bullish Bitcoin Cash has maintained its bullish run as the resistance at $240 and $260 were broken. Unfortunately, BCH reached a high of $280 but was resisted. The bears pulled back to the low of $260. The market is holding above $260 support. On the upside, if the bulls sustain price above $260 and the $280 resistance is broken, BCH is likely to reach a high of $350. On the other hand, where the bulls fail to overcome the current resistance, price will fall to the low above $260. BCH/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: Bitcoin cash is above 80% range of the daily stochastic. This means that BCH is in the overbought region of the market. It also means that sellers may emerge at the $280 overbought region. The downward move has already began. Although, the extend of the downward move is unclear. The 26-day EMA is acting as resistance to the coin BCH/USD Medium-term Trend: Bullish On the 4-Hour chart, BCH is in an uptrend. BCH is making a series of higher highs and higher lows. BCH has reached a high of $280. The price is retracing from a high of $280 to a low of $260. BCH/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading BCH has risen to level 54 of the daily Relative Strength Index period 14. BCH is above the centerline 50 which means that it is in an uptrend zone. The moving averages are sloping upward indicating the uptrend. General Outlook for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Bitcoin Cash has moved closer to the uptrend zone as the market reaches a high of $280.The bulls are yet to break above the current resistance after being resisted twice. The price is currently consolidating above $260 to resume an upward move. Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • GBPJPY Recovers Momentum Beyond The Level At 134.00 GBPJPY Price Analysis – April 8 The British pound got some momentum and pushed the GBPJPY cross to fresh session highs, above the level of 134.70. The claim that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been reported to be in a stable state, although he continued in ICU, appeared to be the only variable that contributed considerable strength to the pound. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 147.95, 138.68, 134.72 Support Levels: 130.49, 127.54, 122.75 GBPJPY Long term Trend: Ranging In the broader context, ongoing development implies that market behavior at a level of 122.75 (low) is simply a horizontal consolidation trend which has been concluded at 147.95 level. Bigger downward trend from level 195.86 (high) and that from level 251.09 (high) may continue. The 122.75 level break may approach the 195.86 to 122.75 forecast of 61.8 percent from the next level of 147.95 to 102.76. The trend would in any way stay bearish as long as the level of resistance stays at 147.95. GBPJPY Short term Trend: Ranging GBPJPY stays in the corrective increase from the level of 123.99 and the trend remains intact. Another increase may be observed, but the upside would be constrained by a retraction of 61.8 percent from 144.95 to 123.99 at 136.92 levels to restart downward movement. On the downside, a break of 129.85 minor support levels can alter the downside bias for a low level of 123.94 retests. The sustained break of the level at 137.00 may, nevertheless, improve the chances of trend reversal and shift emphasis to the level of resistance 144.95. Instrument: GBPJPY Order: Sell Entry price: 134.72 Stop: 135.00 Target: 133.39 Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • Date : 9th April 2020. FX Update – April 9 – 4 Key Events Today.Narrow ranges have been prevailing in currency markets ahead of some big event risk items on today’s calendar.Asian and European stock markets, and US index futures, have retained buoyancy amid hopes that the peak global coronavirus infection rate may be approaching, which could mark the end of “phase 1” of the pandemic, with “phase 2” being how to exit from lockdowns while there is, as yet, no vaccine or cure.EURUSD has posted a 40-pip range so far, with a two-day low at 1.0840 marking the downside limit. USDJPY has been idling in a 26-pip range, with 109.06 marking the upside cap. Cable has settled in the mid-to-upper 1.2300s, below yesterday’s one-week high at 1.2421. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains in intensive care for what is now a fourth day. Official updates, as of yesterday, reported that he was responding well to treatment, but after downplaying his condition ahead of him being admitted to hospital and then an ICU, there is a degree of uncertainty about the accuracy of this. AUDUSD has edged out a 24-day high at 0.6246, buoyed by the current optimism in stock and commodity markets. USDCAD has posted a range of 1.4000-14054, holding within yesterday’s range. Ahead today, attention will be on:   The recommencement of the EU finance ministers’ meeting, at 15:00 GMT after yesterday’s meeting failed to find an accord on a region-wide fiscal plan to offset the impact of virus-containment measures. The OPEC+ group of oil producing nations will also begin its teleconference meeting, from 14:00 GMT.Markets are looking for an agreement to slash crude output by 10 mln barrels a day. There is significant scepticism among oil analysts that even a cut of this magnitude would be sufficient to offset the level of recent demand destruction. In the US, the weekly jobless claims report will once again take top billing (it’s expected to once again paint a dismal picture), along with ongoing deliberations in the US Congress on fiscal relief measures. Finally, FED Chair Powell is scheduled on a conference call from the Brookings Institution in Washington DC.
