Hello Dbphoenix, very happy to see you around here. No doubt that your extended knowledge on price and volume will be a great add to this forum.

 

Just purchased your book and will be more than happy to dig deep into it when will get it.

 

In my learning curve, I feel very much priviledge to have the good karma of meeting great traders as you, Soultrader or Jperl as it help me a lot in developping my own thinking about how to approach the market and how to interact with it.

 

No doubt, that having you, SL, Jperl, Walterws and a lot of others here will bring and even better forum.

 

Sincerely

 

Shreem:)

Several recent posts have mentioned DbPhoenix's book, but I didn't catch the title or where to purchase it. Anybody?

 

Hi Taz - it is an ebook ... from my researches as far as I know the only way to buy it is to contact dbphoenix directly (PM him now he is on this site or PM him through the T2W forum).

Hi Taz - sorry I should have been more specific. As far as I know DbP does not have a website, to contact him send a PM at Traders Lab or at the Trade2Win site (address below).

 

DbP has two great threads on the Trade2Win forum, one at

http://www.trade2win.com/boards/price-volume/29313-springboard.html

 

and another at

http://www.trade2win.com/boards/price-volume/29082-price-volume-support-resistance-demand-supply-abridged.html

 

From either of those thread you can send him a PM.

 

As Blowfish has said the T2W board is down at present so maybe send a PM from this site, the Traders Laboratory site.

Hi guys;

 

what is the VSA analysis for the last 60 minutes of trading on Friday 22-2-2008?

 

cheers;

Unicorn.

 

There's not much point going into bar by bar on that rocket but looking at the big picture we see all kinds of accumulation so it's time for the markup. There were little or no sellers at the bottom. If you look back about a week you can see the pros accumulated at the exact same level. There's something about the 1330 area they liked.

 

Might as well be in on the markup phase. Just keep an eye out for it's when the selling starts.

Yet more charts of PP's. Pity that he deleted all his hard work. Why on earth would someone go to all that effort...oh never mind. Here are a few more of his best charts, with a few notations by moi.

Technically, I don't provide a VSA analysis of this, but I do show how to play it via Wyckoff in my Blog. Check out the end of the "Springboard" thread there.

Something similar happened today, Unicorn, again due to news. This time, however, you wouldn't have got much out of it unless you'd done your pre-market homework re support and resistance.

 

Note that the selling climax does not exactly jump out at you. If you didn't have support drawn at 1765, you might not even notice it. But there or nearby is the place to enter, if you're going to enter at all.

This may interest some who wish to employ VSA, Price/volume, Support/resistance with certain time periods during trading hours.

Also highlights the fact no one person has special mystical insight into the workings of the market.

 

With all due respect and my humble opinion of course, I would never put any faith or give credence to a certain time period for the sake of the hour or minute . Only volume, support and resistance, demand and supply, and the action of price, is necessary for trading techniques. For me that is........

Precisely, that is the reason for the post, to dispel the claims of any mystical mentors, these reversal time periods have been known for a long time, like everything else in this business, they work some time and at other times they do not, however for some who do not wish to stare at the computer whole day long and have desire to incorporate into their trading strategy and test it out, it can be productive.

DB,

 

How far back do you go to draw support and resistance?

 

Can you please show me where you got the 1765 number? Was it on the 20th of February?

 

Thanks,

Bert

Bert

 

Beginning at the end of the day on the 21st, then tested twice on the 25th. It didn't seem to be more than minor support for pre-planning, but price didn't think of it as minor when it was reached for the second time that day. That entire zone from 1760 to 1770 established on the 19th and 20th offered potential support, of course, but 1765 became a kind of fine-tuning.

Hi everybody

I am reading the previous VSA thread and do come up with doubts so heres one

In One of posts PP asked a question: Why is a no demand within long shadow a better trade than no supply within range of WRB?( see attached chart)

I have noticed that when there are tails when market is at new high/low PP annotates it as demnad or supply entering . So My guess is that if we see a long shadow at it represents demand/supply entering especially if price is into new ground on very high volume , if we now see a low volume signal there that reaffirms the previous supply/demand seen on shadows.

Please correct me here.

Another question

we can have a no. of combinations of low volume signals in high volume area(WRBs)

1. No demand in dark WRB

2. No supply in white WRB

3. No demand in white WRB

4. No supply in dark WRB

To me it intuitively seems that 1,2 are better candidates for trade since they reaffirm but i may be wrong here

comments appreciated

Naveen

If you consider the waves of buying and sellling pressure within the bar interval you've chosen rather than focus on the bars themselves, you'll see that a wave that attempts to make a higher high is of greater importance to buyers and sellers than one which is tucked inside a previous bar. Plus it's more likely that the second ND situation in your chart will be noticed by more traders since the intermediating bars may not be visible with a longer bar interval but the swing points will. What is more important in all of this is the lower high at R (assuming that the R is legitimate).

 

As for volume and WRBs, the two need have nothing to do with each other, i.e., one can have a WRB resulting from a lot of buying pressure and very little selling pressure, or vice-versa, which graphically would show as a WRB with "low volume".

Calling all you cynical VSA’rs

Got any commentary on this chart?

 

Actually the less jaded (like dbPhoenix) are also encouraged to Wycoff / chime in.

Ok VSA pro's I need some educating.

I watched the GBP/USD daily bar all day yesterday and prepped for its close (See the bar marked with the arrow)

In the chart below you see a very high volume day into "higher ground" closing, not only on the low, but BELOW the prior days close. This as I understand is TEXTBOOK reversal bar stuff!

 

I waited for the market to drift a tad higher into 11:30 PM last night- I figure the higher the better right? Monster drop ahead!

 

Now I was able to make pips and profit on the trade- but I'm scratching my head right now as this "monster drop" never came to fruition. At one time I was up 58 pips and when I woke up, found myself taking only a 20 pip profit.

 

I would like the more seasoned VSA traders to fill me in. Forget the large green bar to the marked bars "right side". I didn't have the luxury of seeing that todays volume would be higher than yesterday when I made my trading decision.

 

So what is this- temporary weakness that was overcome?

Is the volume way to low to be a "reversal bar?"

I'm dying to find out the answer to this riddle!

Thanks in advance!

Sledge

QUOTE]

 

Zdo-

Not sure when you took your screenshot but on my daily chart my volume is quite a bit higher than what you show in relation to the previous bar on yours. I also drew a few trendlines a while back.

 

As you can see it has broken from its channel and skyrocketed. The "We cracked 1.50" parties are still running rampant- I'm sure. I can say with a lot of certainty that we are now in the "Public Participation Stage" This is where the public is thinking "this bull will ride forever" and the professional money is dumping their longs off their books and gathering shorts. They are feeding the demand in the market.

 

If I were trading this, I would wait for the fuel to run out on the rocket, let it sputter on the top and strategize for when you will enter for your short. I trade the Cable almost exclusively, but if you are in the EUR every day, you will know its personality better than I. (i.e. does it mushroom over, or are turns more abrupt and lightning fast)

 

My .02 for what it is worth.

Sledge

      Hey guys , what are the main things you look for to detect if the consolidation area is accumulating or distributing ? 
      1 ) I see springs in top , still markup happens and it becomes accumulation area and vice versa
      2) There is lots of volume absorption in support line and still markdown occurs.
      3) sometimes in market high / low it becomes re-accumulation  / re-distribution
      Is there any clear way to find it ?

    • Date : 7th April 2020. FX Update – April 7 – A wee bit more Risk. Trading Leveraged Products is risky AUDUSD & GBPUSD, H1 The commodity currencies outperformed some more, as did many developing-world currencies amid a backdrop of rising stock and commodity markets. Equity markets are amid day two of a rally pinned on tentative signs that the global coronavirus infection and mortality rates might be near to peaking. The Fed’s decision to finance new “payroll protection” loans has also bolstered the US economic response plans. AUDUSD has rallied 1.7% in printing a one-week high at 0.6192, while AUDJPY has rallied by 1.4% in making a high at 67.38. The Aussie dollar is now up 3% from last Friday’s closing levels. The Kiwi and Canadian dollars are also up. USDCAD has dropped to an eight-day low at 1.4011. The Dollar, Yen and, to a lesser degree, the Swiss Franc, have continued to underperform most other currencies. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex has declined by 0.6% in pegging a five-day low at 100.79, while EURUSD concurrently lifted by 0.7% in making a five-day high, at 1.0876. The pair is up by just over 1% from its Monday lows. The combination of risk-on positioning in markets and the Fed’s aggressive dollar liquidity provisions, which forms part of a crisis-era level of monetary accommodation, have been bearish tonic for the Dollar. Dollar underperformance saw USDJPY dip back under 109.00, though the Yen itself trader softer against most other currencies as its safe-haven premium is whittled down. Sterling dipped on the news that PM Johnson was moved to ICU and had received oxygen, although Downing Street stated that he was still conscience and that Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will lead the UK government as long as Johnson is incapacitated. From lows of 1.2162 earlier, a weaker USD, has Cable rally over 170 pips to 1.2335. Next resistance is R2 and the upper Bollinger band around 1.2375, 1.2400 and then R3 at 1.2420. Support sits at 1.2300 and the Daily Pivot Point, a 50.0 Fibonacci level and 200hr moving average at 1.2250. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 6th April 2020. Events to Look Out For Next WeekIt’s a holiday shortened week ahead as most markets will be closed on Friday for the Easter holidays, however the novel coronavirus remains the focal point. The rapid upswing in market volatility seen in March should continue in April as governments, central banks, households and businesses further adapt to the ongoing pandemic and uncertain outlook. Hence this will be another week of increased attention to the data which will incorporate more of the impacts of the global shutdowns and will help start to quantify the severity of the economic impacts amid still very uncertain times.Monday – 06 April 2020   OPEC Meeting (USOIL, GMT 19:00) – Azerbaijan’s energy ministry said that a meeting of the OPEC+ group of oil producers is planned for April 6 and will be held as a video conference. Tuesday – 07 April 2020 Interest Rate Decision and Monetary Policy Statement (AUD, GMT 04:30) – Positioning in 30-day interbank cash rate futures this week implied a 60% chance for the RBA to cut its benchmark interest rate to zero from 0.25% at the upcoming policy meeting, which is up from odds of 31% for such a move that were being discounted just over a week ago. However in the March RBA minutes, they provided colour around the 25bp rate cut and the adoption of QE but they made clear that there is no appetite for negative interest rates. JOLTS Job Openings (USD, GMT 14:00) – JOLTS define Job Openings as all positions that have not been filled on the last business day of the month. February’s JOLTS job openings is expected to fall slightly at 6.476M, following the 6.963M in January.

In the last FOMC statement, on March 15, the FOMC slashed rates 100 bps to 0% – 0.25% in an emergency move, getting ahead of the curve. Thursday – 09 April 2020   ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 11:30) – The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts provide information with regards to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions. At the same time, in the last meeting, ECB announced a EUR 750 bln pandemic emergency program (PEPP) and introduced new QE measures worth EUR 120 bln and additional loan programs, while they left rates unchanged at the March policy meeting. Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Headline PPI is expected to decline to a -0.2% March PPI headline with a 0.2% increase in the core index. The continued energy price pull-back through the month likely weighed on the headline. Employment Change (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Employment change is seen spiking to 10.0k in the number of employed people in March, compared to the spike at 30.3k in February. The unemployment rate is expected to remain at 5.6%.

Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – The headline CPI has been estimated to a -0.2% March headline CPI drop with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective February readings of 0.1% and 0.2%. As with PPI, the headline inflation figures will be depressed well into 2020 from the OPEC price war, though the core figures will face divergent pressures that are partly downward due to diminished demand with COVID-19, but upward due to supply shortages that may prompt some erratic swings.

The bulls could not sustain the upward move as Bitcoin fell to $6,828. The bears are defending intensively the $7,000 overhead resistance. BTC is now fluctuating above $6,800. The bears will further sink BTC if the bulls fail to move up. Bitcoin may fall to the low of the breakout level of $6,400. However, if this level also cracks, the market will further fall to the next support. BTC/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: Bitcoin is above 60% range of the daily stochastic. This is given the recent price spike which tested the resistance line of the descending channel. However, if price breaks and closes above the resistance line, there will be a change in the trend. BTC will resume an uptrend. BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bullish Yesterday, BTC was making an upward move to retest the $7,000 resistance. The price has earlier moved up to $6,800 before the commencement of price spike. The market moved above the resistance level but could not sustain above $7,000 because of the selling pressure. BTC/USD 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading The Relative Strength Index has risen to level 66. It indicates that BTC is in the uptrend zone and above the centerline 50. The 21-day and 50-day SMAs are sloping upward indicating the upward move. General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC) Yesterday, Bitcoin rose to $7,283 in a price spike. The bulls could not sustain the upward move because of the presence of sellers at the price level. BTC dropped to a low of $6,800. The price has since been fluctuating above that level.
