For what it's worth, google books has a few copies of "the ticker" and "wall street magazine" available for free download.

The original course is available from the Library of Congress (it was never put into book form, as was common back then with regard to courses, which is why so many of them are lost to us) and has been uploaded here.

 

The basics of the basics are provided here in the stickies. The core of the course, to me, is Section 7 (below). Therefore, regardless of what you decide to do with regard to the entire course, I suggest you read the first stickie, Wyckoff Lite, to become at least acquainted with the underlying concepts.

 

A great deal of what has been written about Wyckoff, particularly during the resurgence of interest in the "classics" over the past decade or so, is at best inaccurate and at worst blatantly untrue. Many traders will tell you, for example, that they are "Wyckoff traders" simply because they've decided to incorporate "volume" into their trading, and that by doing so they are employing the "Wyckoff Method". Volume, however, as you will learn, is only a part of the approach and isn't even necessary to applying it. You will also come across a wide range of approaches that claim to be "based on Wyckoff". However, since nearly all of what's been written with regard to technical analysis over the past hundred years is based on either Wyckoff or Schabacker, this claim doesn't mean a great deal. If you want to know what is legitimately Wyckoff, it makes sense for you to study Wyckoff himself, not what I nor anybody else says about him. In this way, you can build a conceptual framework for trading and investing that is uniquely yours.

So very true ... As in most areas of life, most folks never take the time to read the original thinker, and instead take watered down derivitive thinking for the real thing.

Someone converted the bars for "Analysis of 1930-31 charts" into csv form. It makes going through the PDF much easier when you can draw trendlines, volume at price etc. using your own charting package. Hope this helps.

 

Here is the file, thanks should go to the person at Yahoo.wyckoff who did the conversion though.

I created that file almost 10 years ago. It took some judgment and lots of time to extract the H,L,C and Volume, but I did my best. Please note that I doubled the Volume on the Saturday sessions.

 

I'm glad you posted it here because I was about to do it myself. Also for my own use (not in the file referenced here), I added some "price data filler" in the beginning to allow a chart window to be open full size and start the data scrolling with out messing up the scaling.

This is a tool I find very useful to study pictures of charts, like in forums or PDF documents, to see which volume bar belongs with which price bar, hence the reason I posted it in this section.

 

It is free, and I use a programmable button on my mouse to activate it.

 

http://www.mlin.net/CrossHair.shtml

 

It can use a lot of CPU time if you wave it around the screen a lot, but that is not what I enable it for :-)

 

From what I understand it not actually a mouse cursor but a picture of a cross with a clear background that is bigger than your screen dimensions, [something an actual mouse cursor can not do] hence the CPU usage while waving it around.

 

There is another program that will allow you to adjust how often the crosshair updates but it is shareware so I better not post a link, I'll just tell you it's called Exact Mouse 2.0

I am starting to try and look at the market in more of a Wyckoff way using end of day prices. This is because this is the way I want to trade in the future after the market closes and not get too emotional during the live prices. To help me in my learning process I have been slowly going through the posts in this forum, especially the stickies and trading the Wyckoff way. My question is this, is there any software out there that allows you to go backwards and run the daily charts without seeing the right hand side. So I could go back to the start of 2009 and reveal each day at a time on the chart and see how I get on. I know I could just create a chart and hide the prices but I thought it would be more fun and more realistic to do it without seeing the info at all.

 

Cheers

Lee

Sierra Charts offers replay. There are other charting programs which offer it as well, but I have no experience with them. Replay is particularly effective since one can link charts of varying timeframes and bar intervals into one viewing.

I'm not one to make a habit of bumping old threads, but based on earlier discussion, this is clearly the best place to post a link to the original Wyckoff course: The Richard D Wyckoff Method of Trading and Investing in Stocks: A Course of Instruction in Stock Market Science and Technique.

Hi,

 

I'm a huge price action fan and recently discovered this Wyckoff forum.

 

I've purchased db's ebook (Fantastic btw) and I now wish to study more of Wyckoff's original material.

 

I was wondering if some more experienced people would share a summary of which books to start and finish with.

 

Thanks

Db sums up most of what you need to study, for if you are interested in price action then the best way is to study the action itself as it unfolds and record what you see and think. Once one understands highs , lows, trading ranges, first class divergences, swings, he/she can begin to develop a trading plan. If there was one author I would rec , it would be Justin Mamis, he has a trilogy. There are gems in there and then there is stuff that no longer applies to give one an edge. Db also recommends that one look at the sectors(XLF,XLE,etc) Indu, Trans, and Util. That is unless he has changed :)

I don't know this guy, and cannot vouch for him. But for some reason a while back I was looking into ordering this book, and I was looking for reviews too and came across this:

I didn't see these posted anywhere so I thought I would add them here. These are links to downloads from Google Books and are probably old news, so my apologies if they are redundant.

 

Studies in Tape Reading, 1910 edition : Studies in tape reading - Google Books

The 1910 edition is very much like the version originally published in the Ticker magazine articles in 1908--1909.

 

Studies in Tape Reading, 1916 edition : Studies in tape reading - Google Books

Somewhat revised from the 1910 edition, this is the version most common today.

 

The Business of Trading in Stocks, "B" (John T. Brand), 1917 : The business of trading in stocks - Google Books

This book was written by an old fellow who by 1912 had traded from the tape for 30 years. He describes his approach to managing trades with an emphasis on controlling risk, and he talks about general price behavior, but not about tape reading itself. One interesting aspect is that he said he expected to double the size of his trading account every year---this was during the time that Livermore couldn't make a living trading. Although not written by Wyckoff, it revolves around many of Wyckoff's principles. Originally published in serial form in the Magazine of Wall Street from 1912 to 1914.

I found a new book:

 

Richard A Dickson & Tracy L Knudsen: Mastering Market Timing. Using the Works of LM Lowry and RD Wyckoff to identify Key Market Turning Points, 2011

 

(@ freebookspot.be)

 

It is best suited for the long term investor.

I have been trading for a few years now and recently decided to throw all my indicators out the window and start really to analyze the market. I am really interested in the Wyckoff method and even went as far as purchasing and reading the entire ebook that DB Phoenix made available.

What I am looking for is someone that is trading a similar style and maybe even the same market that I trade (crude oil) to help one another move forward and bounce ideas off. I am not looking for a trading buddy to help make calls but simple to spend a couple hours a week going over charts and talking concepts and so forth.

 

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this but I am sure there is someone else out there that would find this of great help and were we can both benefit from this.

The original course had two parts. One, The Richard D. Wyckoff Method of Trading and Investing in Stocks: A Course of Instruction in Stock Market Science and Technique is uploaded here (as most know by now). The second part is a 97-page document entitled The Richard D. Wykcoff Method of Trading in Stocks: A Course of Instruction in Tape Reading and Active Trading.

I have a copy of this "Tape Reading and Active Trading" in pdf. I got it online and I don't know whether it is appropriate to post it here. If you think it's OK, I can upload it.

That would be great. I'm sure those who want to know more about tape reading would be very appreciative.

    • China’s New Cryptocurrency   China plans to release a new digital currency which would bear some similarities to Facebook’s Libra coin. It would be usable across several platforms like WeChat and Alipay.   In a recent interview with the Shanghai Security News on the 6th of September, the deputy director of the People’s Bank of China, Mu Changchun, stated the purposes and the need for the new digital currency. He stated that the central bank needed to evolve from the use of traditional paper currency and delve into electronic payment methods which are making strong advances around the world. He said that the digital currency would be a realistic way to protect monetary sovereignty and legal currency status, stating that this digital currency initiative was a way of planning for a rainy day.   He also mentioned that digital currency would be as safe as the traditional central bank-issued paper notes and that it could even be used without requiring an internet connection. This offline feature is one of its major selling points as monetary transactions can still be carried out even in the face of communication breakdowns resulting from natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and so on.   In 2014, the Chinese central bank set up a research party to explore the possibilities of a China-based digital currency to reduce the costs of producing and circulating paper money, which in turn would boost policymakers’ control over the supply of money.   Information about the development of this new digital currency was unknown to the public until last month when Mu announced that the innovation was almost ready.   US-based financial magazine Forbes has made claims that the currency would be ready by November 11.   Analysts are saying that the announcement made by social media giants, Facebook on the release of its digital coin, Libra, is the reason for the acceleration of the push towards digital currency by the PBoC.   Mu made mention of how the new digital currency would strike a balance between allowing anonymous payments and preventing money-laundering as compared to Libra. Although the Chinese digital currency may bear some resemblances with Libra, it would possess characteristics that even Libra didn’t have.   Facebook’s Libra Facebook’s Libra has sparked a lot of worries among global regulators that it could become the predominant digital payment format and could become a medium for money laundering considering the social media’s wide reach.   Libra is said to be a digital currency that would be backed by several real-world assets, including bank deposits and government securities, and it will be held by a network of stewards. The structure of Libra is predicated on promoting trust and to stabilize its price.   Finally, Mu further discussed the superiority of the digital currency over altcoins was that others could go bankrupt and cause its users huge losses. Thus he said, can never be the case of PBoC’s new currency.   Source: https://learn2.trade         
    • Facebook’s Libra To Apply For Licence In Switzerland   Swiss financial regulators have signaled that Facebook’s cryptocurrency, Libra is mandated to meet up to extra requirements besides acquiring a payment system license before they can begin operations in the region.   In a recent press release, the Swiss Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) explained that the diverse services projected by Libra have created the need for adding the requirements being imposed. They stated that due to the issuance of payment tokens by Libra, the operations planned by Libra would clearly exceed those of a pure payment system and therefore should be subjected to such extra requirements.   The Extra Regulatory Requirements According to FINMA, the extra requirements would be targeted specifically at liquidity, risk concentration and capital allocation.   The financial regulators of Switzerland have also noted that the management of Libra is another element necessitating the demand for Facebook to meet extra requirements concerning its cryptocurrency initiative.   In the launch of the Libra white paper in June, Facebook noted that the reserve would be controlled by a web of custodians who would be spread across different geographies. The so-called custodians will be mandated to possess an investment-grade credit rating.   Also, Facebook noted that the real assets used to back the Libra cryptocurrency would be a selection of low-risk assets such as bank deposits and government securities.   What Form Will these Extra Libra requirements take?   According to FINMA, the extra regulatory requirements that Libra would have to meet would be nothing different from what other participants in the financial markets have to adhere to.   For example, Libra would be expected to be exposed to certain bank-like rules such as a large simultaneous number of withdrawals of Libra coin by users would have to be palliated by the application of certain bank-like regulatory requirements. This means that Facebook would be required to obtain a banking license. This idea has been pushed for in the past by U.S. President, Donald Trump.   FINMA also mentioned that Libra’s international range will mandate a globally coordinated approach. This new development would drastically delay the launch of the cryptocurrency.   U.S. Pressures Switzerland over Libra Cryptocurrency Switzerland is under intense pressure from the United States to ensure that its cryptocurrency regulations are not prone to misuse. Facebook chose the Central European nation as its hub because of the country’s progressiveness towards FinTech.   According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, officials from Switzerland and U.S. Held a meeting in Switzerland earlier this week, where they discussed matters surrounding the new cryptocurrencies regulations.   The U.S Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, emphasized his concerns over the need to have regulations strong enough to fend off bad actors. He mandated that the Swiss handle these concerns with all importance.   Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • I don't agree with you. There are dozens and dozens of brokers that are regulated by the CySEC or FCA.
    • Just one more question. How many real REGULATED crypto BROKERS can we find? Correct, the answer is ZERO!! Please stay away from trading cryptos.
