A Successful Trader's Perspective on Price Action I Found to Share.

Recommended Posts

I am in a time in my life where I am trying to give back so let me try and tell you some things that I have learned over the years so that you may become a better trader. I'll make you a deal, I only ask that you share what I write with your group so that they may have a chance to add to their learning as well.

 

Let's start by talking about what indicators and trading 'systems' are designed to do and what they are not for. Indicators are just a way to choose and filter the best chances to win over other ones - particularly for spotting divergences which as I said is one particular strength in the way Ryan Watts uses the MACD. Ryan will tell you also that the indicators are a guide and not somethng that need be followed blindly - except in teaching yorself the value of discipline and following rules which is obviously very important as is risk management, which we don't need to get into here. The bottom line is that years ago when I developed and traded my own pure indicator models I still won 60% of the time, but now that I have been trading mostly price action WITH the addition to those, my monthly W/L is ALMOST ALWAYS over 80% and has been for many years now.

 

Think of the indicator fallacy in another way, and I'm not trying to discourage you, but do you really believe that the 90% of traders we know are losing are failing because they really can't interpret and execute the thousands of perfectly good 'trading systems' available - including Ryan's that costs $50? Come on. Think about that. There are more smart traders than dumb ones. All decent trading systems have basically the same indicators and to qualify as a good system the combination just needs to be robust enough to take all 'angles' of past information into account so as to give you a most likely scenario for the future. There are basically only five things we can look at and we can twist up in 1000 different ways - the high, low, open, close and volume data of previous price events. These are all really important to know but what they don't do is tell you buyers can't push prices past 1377.50 - RIGHT F'ING NOW. Sorry for the drama but I am trying to impress on you that price action is what really matters. That information is right on the entry chart and as plain as the nose on your face. The bottom line sadly enough is that there wouldn't be much of a trading industry if everyone new the real secret of scalping is just looking at two numbers which constantly change throughout the day. Those dynamic numbers are called support and resistance and those coupled with the interperatation of how participants are acting at and on these levels is the real key to scalp trading. How could it be that easy? It is - and then again it isn't and that is why 90% fail.

 

The best futures traders in the world are trading the pits on a handheld with X-trader. No indicators. No charts. All they have is a DOM and a sense of what and who is moving the market as represented by PRICES and the number and size of participants at those prices and whether there are more sellers or more buyers - that is it. It really is pretty basic and deceptively simple. They make note of intraday support and resistance levels as they change and the floor pivots for the day/month/week which don't change, etc - all centered around you guessed it, the PRICE RIGHT NOW...The spaces BETWEEN these levels are the trading opportunities. Their screen looks like this...

 

 

Could you trade with just this and a pencil and pad to make notes? Maybe not yet, but you will be able to some day if you take to heart what I am telling you. My best friend is one of these guys. He trades the SP in open outcry and consistently makes $750,000 a year from his seat. So do I, in fact I made over $1,000,000 last year. I'm not bragging and I know that is an insane amount of money, but it is true and I am living proof that a guy with average intelligence can get filthy rich trading the S&P. There is more to life than money, but in this game it is how we keep score. There is no other way to evaluate the success of what we do. I grew up in the woods with no running water and used an outhouse until I was 13. Point made.

 

Now I'm really going to get controversial. I think (let me correct that - I KNOW) I actually have an edge over pit traders. That's right I said it - I have an EDGE over pit traders - and so do you if you want to accept that. Why? I get to look at tons of charts - and you guessed it INDICATORS to filter - let me say that again FILTER out the bad trades. That is not practical in the pits. Indicators when used properly give you reasons NOT to trade as opposed to reasons to trade. Spotting divergences or inconsistencies in the cash market - or other times frames - or big sectors not following the move - or metals are selling off early, or, or ,or, etc...whatever you want to use - can help you insure that coupled with intelligent price action analysis, you will have the best possible chance to win. You have way more information than the guys in the pits, plus your moves go undetected even if you are a relatively big trader like me. How cool is that? The best traders all understand gambling theory. Filter down until you have the nuts.

 

I am sick of hearing people say that 90% of traders lose because the market chews them up or the system doesn't work or whatever. That is just BS. The problem is those traders spend all their time playing with indicator values or analyzing timeframes or whatever and they miss the whole point of what they are doing here. This is a MARKET. All markets have buyers and sellers. I don't know why everyone can be experts on value when they look at items in a store or a piece of real estate or whatever but not in the market. If you wanted to sell your house for 500k and you had nobody even look at it in a booming market what would that tell you? The price was too high. Would you then raise the price of the house the next day? Of course not, you drop your offer if you wanted to sell it. You see what I mean? Markets make sense when we are talking about real estate or whatever, but people just blindly look at indicators and follow systems even in the face of obvious current pirce information. Example: in the last 5 minutes price has had a high failure at 1350 three times and is currently trading at 1348. Do you take a long setup here because a momentum indicator is above zero and the 9 day moving average just crossed over and above the 20 day? Why not, don't we always have to stick to our trading plan - blah, blah, blah? That is a great example of how traders follow systems to the letter and then scratch their head because they can't figure out why they are losing. Into the 90% pile they go. This isn't a ridiculous example either. This scenario repeats itself about once every 10 minutes on most days in any market.

 

In closing I would like to give you an exercise. Turn on a simulator of some kind or use a pencil and paper. I want you to put up one chart of any market you like in a timeframe that moves but is not too fast or too slow - say 250 ticks in the ES or 75 in the YM. I want you to use nothing but the one chart and the DOM to trade. Turn off the news too. From 9-9:30 spend exactly 1/2 hour looking over previous and current price action. Find the S/R levels - there won't be two, there will be several on each side. Write them down. Don't forget, resistance becomes new support and vice versa. You should also use the floor pivots as well. How will you set your targets and stops? It is right there in front of you. See how obvious it is? Trade this from 9:30-10:30 EST EXACTLY like you would with Ryan's system, but without the indicators for the moment and tell me how you did. Wait for pullbacks within strong price pressure and don't take any trades against recent S or R zones within a few points. Give it an honest run and let me know how you do. If nothing else it will show you how weak, as once was, you are at really seeing the market for what it is - a mess of chaotic buyers and sellers that actually does have a very measurable pulse. It will just take you a while to find it. When you do, look out world, here you come! Then add Ryan's filters on top of that and you will be deadly accurate.

Thanks for your post, I am certainly a great proponent of studying price action. Congratulations on your success, :cheers: I wonder if it is fairly newly found? I seem to recall posts of yours not so long ago where it appeared that you still had stuff to deal with. Anyway that's not the point what I wanted to ask was if really concentrating on PA is what you attribute your success too or is it using indicators to filter poorer trades? I am really loath to put squiggly lines back on my chart. It's my contention that if you study price action enough you would pretty much know what an oscillator derived from it would be showing you. It took me long enough to loose the indicators I'm not sure I want to put them back again!!

No I am still developing my system as of these days. This trader's perspective was sent to me as a email because I bought the Watts system a year ago, which I do not follow. I have been loosing the indicators myself lately, as I have been studying VSA, MP, and Price action. Another interesting finding that I find useful is watching a closed line chart with its reactions at certain moving averages like the 8ema, 34ema, and the 200ema. I have learned to have more patience with trade management and having a longer holding period. I have no success to speak of except that I am building a solid trading system with simulation. Skill first, currency will follow. Being undercapitalized will not hold me back from learning from so many here at Traderslaboratory and developing confidence and trust in myself and my system.

Your input in the VSA thread and also in the proposed Wyckoff thread by Dbphoenix and gassah would be very welcome particularly as you mention that your focus is much more on price action around significant support/resistance levels than indicators now.

He did...look at the title. At the end "I found to share."

 

I didn't see it right away either.

This is actually quite simple, but worded in a somewhat confusing manner. I believe the author means don't buy just in front of resistance for a breakout - instead wait for the breakout then a pullback to the new support (old resistance) and buy that. Here is a picture.

 

Hope it helps.

While I agree completely with this article, I think the biggest reason 90% of traders fail is that 90%+ of the information/tools at the retail level is complete garbage.

I'm even starting to question the value of time series analysis of market prices period. The market price may as well just be viewed as an inference, then if market price is at X at noon, no one is going to buy or sell because the the clock now says 12:15. Now take a smoothed representation of this data over time with a moving average, then take a windowed snapshot of the moving average and package it as an indicator. This indicator then has abstracted so far away from what is actually going on in the double auction that you have lost information instead of gaining any. This doesn't mean though that you can't summerize the tape/DOM in order to cover more markets and gain information. How to do that though I'm not exactly sure of yet but I believe it probly requires taking a step back and rethinking the way that our tools have evolved.

Let me get this straight. You find it too difficult to go into a Google Search and type in:

 

Ryan Watts MACD

 

then be presented with a ton of links to articles:

 

Eg.

 

http://www.thephantomwriters.com/free_content/d/w/divergences-2prevent-bad-trades.shtml or

http://www.wattstrading.com/Scalpingtheeminis.html

 

I didn't say I didn't google him. I said, who is he?

 

Maybe I should have said who is thephantomwriters.com - athough wattstrading.com is self-explanatory. Might there be someplace else unbiased besides a forum thread or another company which might be promoting him ?

Not really sure what you are asking here. Ryan Watts is Ryan Watts. If google didn't give you what you want, try the about me page on his website, or e-mail him and ask him.

 

With regards to thephantomwriters.com, if you have spent the same amount of time it took you to make this post here on their homepage, you would know what/who they are.

(i did not read the article) however DOM usually stands for depth of market.

It is a way a lot of system allow traders to view the market showing a few price levels on both the bid and the offer.

Bump...so that I can find this later. I usually move on about 20 trades per week, but for more points I would imagine. One smaller trade every 10 minutes seems like something I could add to my current systems. At least you know you are going to see action whenever you turn your platform on. Would be similar to cocaine for an action junkie like myself.

Regarding Support & Resistance...

 

Several years ago, I paid over $12k for a suite of Fibonacci Confluence support/resistance indicators from Nexgen. A couple years later, I was able to do some backtesting of the trading plan that they teach using these areas as support/resistance. What I found is that the plan works regardless of whether the areas used were the (ridiculously expensive) Fib Confluence areas or some arbitrarily selected lines. I tested the system using 5 point increments on the Russell 2k and achieved results just as good as when the plan was applied to the fib confluence areas.

 

What I learned: Support & Resistance areas can keep you out of good trades, and cause you to exit positions as they approach the perceived resistance area. So how do we know whether these areas are expected to break our hold?: Momentum tells us.

 

Another thing I learned: Our mind plays tricks on us. When we are looking for a support/resistance to hold we can look back at the charts and see all the places where this was true. What is overlooked are the many, many instances where this was not true.

 

I do not even use support/resistance or volume for that matter in my trading. Some of the best trades are breakouts from these areas, which in the past I would have been 'afraid' to take. Try this exercise: Go back through your charts and instead of looking to see where your pivots or whatever 'worked', look to find all the times they apparently didn't mean squat. It's an enlightening exercise.

So true.

 

And some of the best trades are when what is expected doesn't come about, such as a trendline break that doesn't continue to break. Crowd buys a downtrendline break or sells an uptrendline break only to see it reverse back in original direction. Uh oh! :)

My experience is different.

 

I very much trust and rely on support and resistance, I just don't trust it when it's countertrend, strong trends know no obstacles.

    • Date : 12th December 2019. Lagarde prepares ECB debut – 12th December 2019.   Policy unchanged Projections unlikely to change much Clues about review sought Style in focus Presiding over her first presser of the European Central Bank today, Lagarde is expected to confirm once again the current policy setting, giving time to ECB to focus on the planned review of its overall policy framework.Final Eurozone GDP and PMI readings broadly supported this neutral picture, while the confidence that a deep recession can be avoided is strengthening (Figure 1) despite the fact that German manufacturing and production numbers still look weak. The exports and the overall trade are actually holding up much better than expected, which together with still strong labour markets is underpinning hopes the net exports and consumption will continue to support growth not just in Germany.Figure 1 : December German ZEW investor confidence outcome, end the year firmly in positive territory at the highest level since February 2018.As there is nothing in the data really to challenge the ECB’s overall policy stance, the focus firstly turns into the tone and presentation style that President Lagarde will have. The “risk” is that the presser will be equally uneventful as her testimony before the European Parliament. Lagarde’s team building exercise seems to have worked and at least in public there has been a pretty consistent message since she took over, which is very likely to be confirmed today. Additionally it will be interesting to see whether she will back fully Draghi’s package.Citi Bank: All key interest rates will likely be left unchanged, and the forward guidance reaffirmed. The main interest at this meeting will be the new Eurosystem staff projections, extended to 2022, to gauge whether the September package will be sufficient to bring inflation back into line with the ECB’s target over the forecast horizon. If not, investors’ attention will quickly turn to the ECB’s toolbox and what instruments the Governing Council would be willing to use and when, in order to defend its credibility in the absence of large fiscal support. The upcoming strategic review of monetary policy will also likely be the focus of many questions.Hence as reported by Citi, other than Lagarde’s style, ECB projections could also monopolize the attention. Even though, the ECB remains ready to act again and tweak all its measures if necessary, it has already done a lot and now needs to keep an eye on the side effects of the very expansionary monetary policy, while politicians need to do their bit to support the economy.The central bank won’t be reducing the degree of stimulus any time soon with many analysts supporting that this will continue until mid-2020 unless there is a major change in circumstance.Central bankers will be conducting a comprehensive review of the policy framework, however, with a special focus on the inflation target. A more symmetric definition, which stresses that the ECB can see through lengthy inflation overshoots as well as periods of too low headline rates is likely to come in the first quarter of next year. The inclusion of owner-occupied housing costs into the HICP number also remains a challenge especially as house prices are rising rapidly in some centres, also thanks to the low interest rate environment.Bund yields have nudged higher over the past week, but the German 10-year so far failed to move lastingly above -0.3%. Uncertainty on trade and Brexit are keeping a lid on yields, although there is the risk that if things go the way markets want and a phase one trade deal is confirmed and in the UK PM Johnson gets his majority, there could be a sharp rise in yields, if markets price out further easing and start to look ahead to central banks removing some of the stimulus.However this is far away for now, while central bankers are not looking eager to add further easing.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • USDJPY Remains Biased To The Downside   USDJPY faces further price weakness despite its price hesitation on Tuesday. On the upside, resistance comes in at 109.00 level. Above this level will turn attention to the 109.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 110.00 level on a break of that area, A cut through here will open the door for more gain towards the 110.50. On the downside, support lies at the 108.00 level where a break will target the 107.50 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 107.00 level and then lower towards the 106.50 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further downside threats.        
    • Sterling Advances Barely Hours To UK Elections As Latest Poll Predicts Conservatives Win In just two days from now, a major event that will set the trend for the currency market for the year 2020, the UK elections will be held. In the face of a Brexit extension, UK prime minister had pushed for an earlier election in the hopes of having a majority conservatives win in the parliament which will make the Brexit deal pass through easily. As the clock ticks, with barely less than 48 hours to this epochal event, the newest poll by Survation conducted for ITV’s good morning Britain show predicts a Boris Johnson win by 14 pts. ahead of Jeremy Corbyn‘s Labour party. The Brexit deal seemed to give the conservatives an edge as it accounted for 32% of the vote decision while NHS gave Labour party a slight edge. On the overall, a majority vote of 42% was predicted for the conservatives while Labour had 28%. Market Reaction as the Clock Ticks Optimism looms in the market as the prediction of a conservatives win will ease Britain’s exit from Europe by January 31 deadline. The EUR/GBP pair continued to fall till the early hours of today breaking the 0.8411 trend line targeting the 0.8149 resistance level. GBP/USD pair rebounded to consolidate briefly targeting 1.3381 resistance levels. Technical analysis within a 4-hour MACD shows that both pairs may likely touch down. CAD edged slightly higher advanced by USMCA news but yet to consolidate gains. The USD against a basket of five major currencies held steady awaiting FOMC’s minutes due out tomorrow. Against a basket of currencies, NZD’s dominance is the highest. Sterling also gained momentum firmed up by approaching UK elections. The safe-haven, the Japanese yen, and Swiss franc remain pressured as major events that will shape the market for 2020 are been anticipated. On the Asia side, significant market activity wasn’t recorded as most currency pairs held steady within a day’s range. In the Asian stock market, not so much activity was recorded being weakened by recently released Chinese PMI numbers. Most of the indexes closed a little lower while US stocks rose swiftly after Friday’s release of US non-farm payroll reports. The outcome of the December 15 deadline set by the US for the signing of a preliminary trade pact will determine the week’s direction and even further into the year 2020. Also due out later in the week is UK GDP figures and ZEW released out of Germany.
    • Date : 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview – 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview No policy changes or surprises are expected with today’s announcement (19:00 GMT) and Chair Powell’s press conference 30 minutes later. It will be interesting to see if, as expected, the voting is unanimous this time round. The FOMC members have expressed significant differences of opinion during 2019 as three rate cuts were implemented.  The apparent paradox of low unemployment and low inflation, the new “norm”. The two-digit unemployment rate (U-3) in November edged down to 3.53% from 3.56% in October, and a 3.52% cycle-low in September, all below the 3.58% prior cycle-low in April and a 4.00% rate at the beginning of the year. Current readings remain much lower than the 4.2% long-run unemployment rate projection noted in the September SEP, it is expected that this estimate will be trimmed today. Headline CPI rose 0.4% in October while the core index rose by 0.2%, for respective y/y gains of 1.8% and 2.3%, versus September figures of 1.7% and 2.4%. Today the November headline is expected to fall again to 0.2% and the core remains flat at 0.2% too. The Fed’s favoured inflation gauge, the PCE chain price measure, rose 1.3% y/y in October and expectations are for an uptick to 1.4% in November. The core PCE chain price measure rose 1.6% y/y in November, versus 1.7% in September, and expectations are for the pace to hold at 1.6% in November. The FOMC’s latest median estimates for 2019 inflation are 1.5% for the headline and 1.8% for the core. Hence, the focus will be on the Fed’s new quarterly forecasts, with expectations raised and likely to be mostly bullish results with a bump up in the median growth projection and a drop in the median dot to reflect a steady stance through 2020. However, the individual dots are likely to show both, forecasts for cuts and hikes. Chair Powell is expected to reiterate the US economy and policy are in a “good place,” (a phrase he has used a number of times lately) and could sound a little more upbeat after the strong jobs report. But, he will continue to warn of downside risks. The FOMC isn’t likely to announce any new measures on reserve management operations (QE?) or a repo facility. All steady into 2020 and beyond. USDIndex remains biased to the down side but has support around 97.40 and the 200-day moving average. A breach of this key support zone brings in 97.00 and the October low of 96.85. A break over 97.80 (the confluence of the 20 and 50-day moving averages) and 98.00 would be required before a re-test of the recent high at 98.50 could be considered.
