Playing with the VMAR`s open research

Recommended Posts

Forex tends to trend upward for long periods.

But at the top of the market it can go sideways for a month or 3.

Falls used to be sharper and briefer.

The last few months have not been typical of the last few years.

Uncertainty has replaced confidence for GBP.

Noticing AusUsd tends to be bull during Aus open, while other prices are falling, AusUsd seems to be trying to swim against the tide.

So Aus open might be the better time to buy AusUsd if other prices are rising (eg GbpJpy), and after Aus hours might be better for shorts if other pairs are falling. Not sure what to think yet.

On the other hand, just saw the Aud bulls get barBQ'd, 5min chart is like 40pips in 15 min, just 3 bars. 54 pips from a Walter entry. Thank you Walter.

Your Icon entry system is brilliant, about as good as it gets.

 

I would agree Bruce that we are clearly getting some nice optimization here on timing... I am still playing a lot with inputs an combinations...

 

My question here : would the base line of fantailvma3 be the tightest we can get ?... (near to close) cheers Walter.

There are at least two ways ADX to VMA might be done better, but I don't know if the difference will be obvious for the trader. I would like to do them anyway just to get things optimized. Can't say yet. I hope the first of these will make a visible difference.

In a sense, every trade is part of an outswing or an inswing on the longer picture.

 

Correct ¡¡¡ thats a basic principle from Drummond Push / Refresh... and it organizes the overall reading of whats happening... your 1 hour chart is the best one to see this big picture... from there on coming down to 5 min and 1 min for timing puposes is the best shot... I converge with you Bruce on this great aerial view of the market... cheers Walter.

Let me show you what could had been my reading... (iconic type)...

 

 

On the 5 min with the fantailvma1 you can see that the black line takes off to the downside, after long erratic HE action... then he makes a sweet pullback and the 1 min timing happens as the fantailvma3 yellow line gets back out of the rainbow...

a nice leading entry.... notice the possible logic scalper exit... aint that nice.. cheers Walter.

This is a similar case early today... you can see on the 5 min this laddering going on after some HE action market decides to continue down... NOW on the 1 min... I never get a pullback... all laddering down... here timing should be difernt OR we would need a tighter vma version that could pullback some for more confidence...

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=2928&stc=1&d=1190082918

 

but this type of trend continuation on 5 min had been today a great example of how market makes a pause and then he tells you with vmar on 5 min when exactly he will resume the party... let me make video on this... cheers Walter.

Gee just a simple thing like selling the peak, right after it has dropped down to green on 5 min is working at the moment, how easy is that?

Helps if there is a trend, then its just fall, HE, fall, HE, fall....

Hey Walter

Instead of buying a coconut island in the Pacific,

how about aiming a bit higher?

Like Aus is the smallest continent and they grow pineapples there too hehe

 

Gee just a simple thing like selling the peak, right after it has dropped down to green on 5 min is working at the moment, how easy is that?

Totally Rock my friend ¡¡ once you start seeing the power... its outstanding ¡¡ can you make for me some averiguations of Aus GDP... we may buy it in a couple of years.. jejeje... but still the small Island could suggest less stress... jejjee....

 

 

let me add here another super video on this 5 min laddering trades... I believe its a nice "Iconic" combination of the 5 min vmar laddering readings with the powerfull 1 min timings... I am feeling some progress today... cheers Walter.

Yes, the icon is there on multiple scales and time frames.

Different approaches may suit different market conditions.

Fx can be very unfriendly, it can also be very friendly.

When they say the trend is your friend, they aint kidding.

 

You got good eyes Walter, nice vid.

 

So first I spam the trade thread with techie stuff.

Now we both spam the tech thread with trades....

 

How about a Greek island in the Med, nice clear blue water?

GBPJPY has passed a recent historical low and approaches another one.

There is the chance of a big rise trend happening and AudUsd will surely go up if that happens.

Somehow I think more down is likely, but it could be mixed up or it could be a thrust through the barrier. Maybe boring, maybe hot.

 

Anyway, have you told Dr J about your thing with bananas and your dislike for pineapples yet....? How do you feel about dates and olives then?

A few days back you posted a pix of a fast reversal in 5min that "turbo" was too slow to give you a good entry price on.

Well I just saw it happen in GBPJPY where I know what it means on this occasion at least, likely to be the top price for some time to come.

 

Maybe if you see it happen on 5 min, remember to look back later to see if it marked a high.

 

I took entries based on my system and doubled up when VMA gave supporting signals. Waited to see if AudUsd would do the same fast turn but it seemed more normal.

 

Four demo trades, $500 and just started...hehe

See if I get egg on my face...

Hard to think straight with new stuff happening.

Should have said this is a double burn move, like icon.

First the bears get burned with a counter trend.

Then the bulls get burned by a fast reversal at the top.

Nice $ for the bank.

But it tends to confirm that the original trend is solid, you know what I'm saying already hehe.

    • Date : 1st April 2020. All eyes on Commodity Currencies.Asian stock markets are lower, while European and US equity index futures are showing losses of around 3%. Data out of Asia today were nothing short of dismal, showing manufacturing contracting across most of the region, highlighting the economic toll that virus-containing measures are having.The main concern remains that the massive global stimulus measures simply won’t be fully effective while many economies remain in a state of lockdown of as-yet unknown duration.Commodity currencies have come under pressure as the winds of risk aversion picked up again.The Canadian dollar was the main loser so far today , while it has remained under pressure with oil prices sinking back toward major-trend lows as crude storage facilities burst at the seems from excessive supplies.USDCAD has gained up nearly 2% in making a 1.4230 high, though the pair so far has remained below yesterday’s peak at 1.4350. This is due to the fact that crude prices are down by over 65% year-to-date. This level of price decline in Canada’s principal export, while it sustains, marks a significant deterioration in the Canadian economy’s terms of trade. Given the glut of crude flooding the market, and given that supply is increasing as demand will remain weak for a historically protracted amount of time, Canadian Dollar is anticipated to remain apt to underperformance. The likes of the Norwegian krona, which like the Canadian dollar is an oil-price correlator, and many developing world currencies have also come under pressure.From the technical perspective, USDCAD overall outlook remains positive with asset holding above all three daily SMAs since January, and momentum indicators positively configured. RSI at 59 recovery from a pullback last week, Stochastic rebound from oversold territory and MACD presents some decline of the bullish momentum but holds well above 0. That said, USDCAD revisiting its recent 17-year high at 1.4669 seems likely before long.Intraday meanwhile, the rebound of USDCAD looks to run out of steam, however only a move below 1.4050 could suggest a reverse of the outlook.AUDUSD tipped over 1% lower in making a 5-day low at 0.6064 amid weaker Gold prices (end-of-quarter flows). The Aussie still remains comfortably above the 17-year low that was seen on March 19th at 0.5507. The Kiwi dollar has also taken a tumble.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 31st March 2020. Dead cat Bounce!Dead cat Bounce! A new term? Not really but definitely something that we haven’t seen for more than a generation.In general, investors throughout the years invented this term as a follow up to a market free fall. By definition, the “Dead cat Bounce” is simply a market phenomenon that translates into temporary small and short-lived rebounds of an asset’s price within a prolonged period of downside. This term is based on the idiom that “even a dead cat will bounce if it falls far enough and fast enough“. Hence in the financial market it is said that even if an asset falls with a considerable speed, it would rebound as even a dead cat would bounce. However, every time there is a rebound, the overall initial trend is then anticipated to resume, bringing the bearish influence back into play.In addition, the phenomenon can occur in any market, yet is particularly prevalent in equity markets. It is often the case that it is considered a continuation pattern.Why are we raising this topic now? This March, was the first time after Black Monday 1987 that we have seen the worst intraday selloffs in stock markets. Since February 20th, the stock market entered an aggressive bear market with a few days of an absolute rally. An example was the 13th of March in which the stock market roared back in the biggest one-day rally since 2008 after its worst single-day crash in 33 years just a day before. This is the classic dead cat bounce.If you closely observe stock market behaviour in March you will notice that there is a dramatic decline, with a number of days when the market reversed some of its losses, but failed to take the bait, and eventually fell back down again. This is a situation of portfolio managers wanting to sell some of their positions and when they see some strength in the market, decided to unload. This is what we call a “dead cat bounce” after it falls from high enough. Remember however that not every correction/reversal can be interpreted as a dead cat bounce.Theoretically this term is defined as the term in which,   A stock in a severe steep decline has a sharp bounce off the lows. A small upward price movement in a bear market after which the market continues to fall. Unfortunately, I need to highlight that there is not an easy way to determine in advance whether an upwards movement is a dead cat bounce which will eventually reverse quickly or whether it is a trend reversal. There is nothing easy in identifying the bottom of the market. However to a large extent a dead cat bounce is a retracement, in comparison to a reversal, i.e. it is temporary.Dead cat bounce as a technical analysis tool and more precisely as a continuation pattern could be tradable from short-term or medium term traders. Having explained this phenomenon, a follow-up article will elaborate on how market participants can trade a dead cat bounce.Always trade with strict risk management.
