Trading with Market Statistics XI. HUP

Recommended Posts

with the longer term HUP's such as 5,10, and 20 day,do you use a rolling time period or a fixed time?

 

I use the regular trading hours time period for the longer term HUP's although it really is not going to matter that much if you use 24 hour data since the overnight volume is usually not that large.

First, thanks Jerry for providing such fantastic tools! I've been looking for a way to characterize the market in terms of statistics and this series of threads really cleared up a few things for me. I have a distribution related question - not HUP, but since you're active in this thread I thought I'd give it a shot here as it should be a relatively straightforward question.

 

In a normal distribution you get approx 68% of the observances in the 1st standard deviation. In a developing distribution, if I want to compute the % of observances within the first standard deviation, do I measure it from the VWAP +/- Std Deviation, or from the PVP (POC) +/- Std Deviation? Thanks for your input!

You can compute the Std Dev with respect to any starting point, however when computed with respect to the VWAP you can show that this will yield the smallest SD possible. In a normal or symmetric distribution VWAP=PVP so computing the SD with respect to PVP would give you the same SD.

Jerry, how is your volume distribution function arrived at since you do not use MP? Of course I am referring back to your Trading With Market Statistics I. Volume Histogram; MP is a subset as you say. I have Ensign Windows with it's Price Histogram. How do I need to modify that program? Regards, Gary

On the price histogram study window, choose volume. The histogram will then be a volume distribution instead of a price distribution.

Thank you Jerry, then the time would be one day .... or longer?

 

You can set the volume histogram for any time period you like. A nice feature is the ability to show the histogram for just the visible bars on your chart.

Thank you Jerry, the volume histograms on your post of "Trading With Market Statistics I. Volume Histogram" are for that day's volume alone?

 

Yes, that is correct

Hi Jerry:

Greetings.

You have mentioned that we can select any number of days to draw the volume histogram including the choice of limiting the data to what is avilable on the current screen.

With this wide choice,, don't the PVP value change depending on volume histogram data ( 1day, or 2 day or current screen data)?

If the PVP value change based on the quantity of data , skew with VWAP also change based on quantity of data used. Given this varience, what is the ideal data period should we use to plot volume histogram and PVP, for day trading the index futures?

 

Appreciate your advise.

 

Regards,

 

Raj

Hello Jerry and thank you for all the hard work, I've read and love your posts. Jerry, could you specify the differences between the the VWAP and the VWMA, and why one is better or more useful than the other. Thank you.

Raj, As a minimun, the amount of data should span a time period at least as long as the period over which you intend to trade. So if you are day trading, then you should have at least one days worth of previous data showing VWAP and volume histogram.

If you trade over a two or three day period, then you should have at least two or three days worth of data.

Hello Jerry and thank you for all the hard work, I've read and love your posts. Jerry, could you specify the differences between the the VWAP and the VWMA, and why one is better or more useful than the other. Thank you.

 

The VWMA or volume weighted moving average is like any other moving average except it is weighted by volume. In practice what this means is that you have to choose a time period over which to compute the average. The problem with this, is you are always dropping the oldest data at the back of the average and adding new data at the front.

VWAP on the other hand, does not drop any of the data. It keeps adding data at the front.

Which is better? It depends on your point of view. To me, the VWAP and the histogram from which it is derived provides a clearer picture of the overall statistics of the market. The VWMA and its histogram may have no statistical significance depending on its time frame.

Dear Jerry:

 

Thanks for your immediate response.

 

Just to clarify your reply, suppose I start day trading say on Wednesday morning, then I should set my Volume Histogram indicator to plot the summation of Tuesday & wednesday's data as the day progress?

 

Appreciate your advise.

Raj another way to look at things is from the point of view of the size of moves you want to capture and your risk tolerance. As the distance between VWAP & SD deviation is a measure of volatility and also the minimum size move you might anticipate you can 'tune things' with respect to what you would like to achieve.

 

Edit: hopefully that gives some clues to your follow up question the basic, scalp and swing trading threads have similar characteristics the main difference being the sample size and hence the magnitude (between bands) and the time taken to complete that movement (50 point moves tend to take longer than 5 tick moves after all). Pick what suits you. (I think Jerry mentionde his favourite, can't remember tbh).

As a minimun, yes. At the start of Wednesday, you don't have any statistical data to examine. So as a minimum you should have Tuesday's data available and add to it as the new day progresses.

Jerry,

 

First of all, thanks for all of your very educational posts. I really appreciate it. Questions on HUP's.......

 

 

Taking out previous day's VWAP and PVP's, wouldn't it be effective to look at previous day(s) volume distributions and look for areas of acceptance and rejection as high probability targets as well?

 

Seems like to me those areas would be the most likely to be HUP's since price has price has some definitive volume history at those places.........

 

So ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,why not put priority on previous day(s) VWAP, PVP and places of acceptance and rejection as measured by volume?

 

Thanks again,

Jperl,

 

Thanks for all of you very educational posts.. Question for you on HUP......

 

 

At the start of a day, I understand to use previous day VWAP and PVP's as HUP's. But would the next best source of HUP's be places in previous days or weeks where price was rejected or accepted as noted by high volume or low volume areas? High volume areas would represent places where price was accepted and low volume areas would be places where price was rejected.

 

I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

Yes of course, you may use any defined HUP's you like, but don't mix apples with oranges. Be consistent. Use the same HUP's from day to day.

Stocks & Yields pushed higher, Oil held onto gains and Gold tested 3-week lows.   The FOMC Minutes showed (1) there could be a faster taper than the $15bn/mth currently planned, (2) Inflation could indeed be “persistent” (3) Clear division over 2022/23 rate hike cycle, Doves hold sway for now.

Overnight – JPY PPI (1.0%) hit a 10-yr high, German GDP and consumer confidence both missed (1.7% vs 1.8% and -1.6% vs -1.0%) respectively. European Open – December 10-yr Bund future up 16 ticks, while US futures are slightly in the red. Bunds already outperformed yesterday, as EZ spreads widened in the wake of hawkish leaning ECB comments & confirmation that German finance ministry will go to the liberal FDP, which likely means more resistance to debt mutualisation across the EZ & more pressure on ECB to limit asset purchases. DAX & FTSE 100 futures are currently up 0.4% & 0.3% respectively & US futures are posting gains of 0.3-0.4%, suggesting markets are coping quite well with the prospect of less accommodative policies.

    • EURUSD HOVERS NEAR MULTI-MONTH LOW, UNDER 1.1250 LEVEL   EURUSD Price Analysis – November 24 Throughout the session, the EURUSD pair remained on the losing side and was last seen moving with considerable losses around the 1.1250-36 level. The announcement that the White House has opted to reappoint incumbent Fed Chair Jerome Powell for a second term sparked the recent strong dip. The spot is trading at 1.1253 at the time of writing, down 0.25 percent on the day. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.1525, 1.1422, 1.1300 Support Levels: 1.1200, 1. 1150, 1.1100 EURUSD Long term Trend: Bearish EURUSD has sunk to fresh multi-day lows, as seen on the daily chart, after extending the recent breach beneath the moving averages 5 around the 1.1300 level. This exposes the possibility of a deeper pullback and a re-test of the psychological support around 1.1200. Under the 1.1200 level, the euro’s underlying bullish attitude is in jeopardy. Overall, the EURUSD stays bearish while trading under the major horizontal support turned resistance and significant level at 1.1422. A breakout of the 1.1300 level, on the other hand, would aim for the 1.1350 level on the way to the 1.1400 zones. The fall of the 1.1200 zones, in the alternative scenario, is viewed as a bearish continuation indicator. EURUSD Short term Trend: Bearish The risk is weighted to the negative on the 4-hour chart, as the pair is developing below the firmly bearish 5 and 13 moving averages. Technical indicators have shifted to the downside, with negative levels. However, in the present scenario, the RSI has not yet reached oversold territory, allowing for more selling. On the upside, a break over the modest resistance level of 1.1300 might shift the intraday bias to neutral. On the downside, the 1.1200 zones provide initial support. The next important level of support is around the 1.1150 mark. If there are any more losses, the 1.1100 extension level of the low decline may be tested. Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • IS IT RATIONAL TO SETTLE FOR 10% RETURNS PER MONTH? “One of the secrets few know and fewer implement when it comes to trading success is that you have to really care about doing well. These days, I see a lot of traders not caring enough, not prioritizing learning about trading, and making pathetic weak-willed excuses.” – Chris T. Perfectionism – a bane of the trading world When people look for a solution to their trading problems, they tend to look for the solution in the wrong places, having the wrong mindset. One problem with most traders is perfectionism. For instance, we tend to go to those who promise us 50% to 100% per week or month. If someone gives an estimate of 5% profits per month, we would think that is too small. If an investment salesperson promises huge returns in a short period of time, we’re drawn to them. What if I tell you that 5% per month is good returns on your trading or investment, would you agree with me? Is 60% growth per annum not good enough? Many years ago, one of my mentors in the financial industry told me that, even 20% growth per annum is good. In schools, we tend to ridicule those who make average grades and praise those who make excellent grades. The same is true of the world of sports. Do you think great sports teams win all their matches always? No! But they do well over time. Are 10% gains per month too low? Now let me ask these questions: How much percentage do you earn on your savings account per annum? How much do you earn on your fixed deposit account per month? How many people can pay off their mortgages within one year? If you buy a bus, to use for commercial purposes, is it easy for you to recover your money in one year? Can you buy a property and sell it for 100% profit within 10 months? If you found a startup, how long do you think it would take you to start making profits? Please attempt to answer these questions yourself, based on real-life experiences. Now, back to the question that makes the last subheading: Are 10% gains per month too low? Why do we tend to be unrealistic and fallacious when it comes to online trading? Making 10% returns per month from Learn2.trade crypto signals One good thing about the margin trading of cryptos is that you can make money, both in bull and bear markets. You don’t make money only when the price is going up. If your timing and methodology are right, you can predict a downward movement or an upward movement and participate in them. Learn2.trade provides quality crypto signals to interested traders. Each signal comes with stop loss and take profit targets. Sometimes a trade is closed before the stop or the target is hit. We use 5 types of orders for the crypto signals. They are Instant Execution, also known as Market Execution, Buy Limit, Sell Limit, Buy Stop, and Sell Stop. Generating an average of 2 – 3 signals per day, we also use risk settings that are usually around 1% per trade and we attempt to gain more than we risk. As these signals are sent, we ensure that we also use them, practicing what we preach. Learn2.trade crypto signals – recent performances Please check the image below to peruse what has been made recently. You see can that we use stop loss, and use small lot sizes, relative to the size of the accounts. It just doesn’t make sense to bet too big on an individual trade. You can also see that we have both losses and profits. However, our average profits are bigger than average losses. That is the pedigree of a viable/ promising strategy: Make more money than you lose. Therefore, losses and drawdowns are also tightly controlled so that they don’t have significant effects on the account. These kinds of drawdowns are shallow, for recovery and eventual growth always happen. The markets are difficult but profitable Making consistent, regular profits from the market is hard, but success is possible. When the markets prove difficult, then we only need creative approaches. Markets will continue to prove uneasy and tough, but we will continue to make profits from them, no matter what. We target 10% profits per month, though we make more than this in most cases. 100% profits every 10 months is an enviable achievement. If 10% gains per month are compounded, the results in a few to several years will be amazing. Yes, you should be aware of the power of compounding. Join us today, in this journey of regular, monthly profits. Please see the image above, to know relevant metrics and figures of the recent results of the strategy behind the signals. You can join us here for, few free crypto signals per week: For Cryptos. Or you can hop in, and become our VIP right away, and enjoy all our crypto signals, up to 3 signals per day.

    • Yes trading currencies is much more risky than trading stocks, since they're not supported by central bank policy efforts but instead freely fluctuation in a very random fashion. Profits can create wrong impression that you learned how to trade but often it is just the product of pure luck.
