Best Trading Platform for VSA

Recommended Posts

Don't think there is any particular trading platform designed for VSA nor is it necessary.

TP are for entering orders, any signals relating to price/vol will be on charts.

 

Try infinity AT with sierra charts, any bar or candlestick chart with volume histogram.

Experts please share which trading platform you use and the features you most like about and how it helps you with VSA.

 

I'm no expert, but give Tradeguider a look at, it's built only for VSA, also they have just recently released a newer version of their RT. Go to their website and have a look at all of the saved seminars etc.

Personally I'd avoid Tradeguider like the plague. Its over priced. Its 'simplified' a handful of fairly straight forward principles into 400+ indicators. Its limited on data feeds. It's clunky. Did I mention it was overpriced?

 

As has been said use any software that suits you. Just display plain price bars with a volume histogram and give yourself a chance to read the chart without spurious clutter.

Think the original query pertained to Trading Platform not Tradeguider software.

Agreed, TG is a total waste of money(over $3000), any charting pack with price and volume bars would suffice if one makes an effort to understand the basic concepts.

 

All the indicators in TG are superfluous and of minimal value. Pure scam;);) and that goes for the latest Advance course DVD at over $900 by the one and only World's first Chart Reading Machine...............Manby :rofl:

I agree with rigel and Shamal, respectively. TradeGuider is a waste of money, and the trading platform is immaterial. If your charting program provides a price bar and a volume bar, you're in business.

 

If even Sierra Charts is too expensive, look at QuoteTracker. It's free.

It's all about your needs.

 

If you simply want to look at bars and volume, then most any package will do.

 

If you want to paint you volume bars according like TG does or other on this forum do, then you will need to know a programming language. Or hope the code is available for free here or on the net.

 

The ideas and you want to incorporate into your charts, will dictate how complex of a software package you need. But the basics: bars/candles and volume are found in most all them.

 

*** one thing that I would mention: Not all packages have HLC bars, these bars are different than OHLC bars as they have no hash for the open. Strict VSA does not look at the open. If you intend to look at the open anyway, than it is not a problem. But if you don't, might as well remove it all together. ***

Dear all,

Thanks for this thread. I am very interested in VSA and here I am learning a lot of.

I have a big question: My broker is xtb here en Spain. I trade in Forex. From MT4 platform I can only see the volume my broker. Then VSA indicator is not very useful. Perhaps is only other tool to use with others indicators.

Do all brokers show us their own volume? Is there other possibility?

Thanks,

 

Miguel

I'm warning all to not give CC# to TradeGuider or VSA club as they will never stop charging you. And refunds dont come... lots of talk but then I dont know why that happens is retort. I had to get visa involved and 3 months charges still havent been returned. Just FYI

I think TradeStation is better to compare with any other platforms. Easy to use and not a lot of complicated data incoming. Get a free volume indicator to read VSA, I saw somebody was talking about a Free volume indicator in this forum based on Tom Williams book. When you get something free, why you have to try expensive stuffs.

    • Date : 5th March 2021. Market Update – March 5 – Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. What Fed Chair Powell did not say that shook up the markets. Wall Street turned sharply lower following Fed Chair Powell’s remarks, even though it was not what he said but what he did not mention that undermined equity sentiment. Specifically, he did not push back against the recent surge in Treasury rates. Indeed, he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move, providing tacit approval for the run-up in longer dated yields. Consequently, the stock market was dragged lower once again thanks to rising rates and expectations for more of the same as the economy and inflation pick-up further. Headlines:   The Chair’s comments that he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move were not in the market’s narrative. Fed Chair Powell’s perceived benign neglect of the surge in bond yields weighed on Treasuries and extended the recent selloff back toward the highs from February 25. The US 10-year rate corrected slightly overnight but remains at 1.56%. The 10-year rate is currently down -5.3 bp at 0.079%, while yields jumped 6.0 bp and 7.5 bp in Australia and New Zealand respectively. The tech-heavy USA100 over -3% lower intraday, with spill over to the broader indexes. However, the losses were pared in late trading with closing declines of -2.11% on the USA100, -1.34% on the USA500, and-1.11% on the USA30. JPN225 and ASX were still down -0.2% and -0.7% respectively at the close. BoJ’s Kuroda sees no need to widen yield band. He said there is no need to widen the implicit band set for its long term yield target, while stressing the need to keep borrowing costs low to support the economy. Oil prices jumped higher after the OPEC+ meeting decided to maintain current output levels. The USOIL is currently trading at USD 64.60 per barrel. In Europe, key central bankers have also played down the rise in rates and signalled that the central bank won’t add additional measures next week that would reverse the rise in rates. Verbal intervention and a flexible use of PEPP purchases will likely be used to smooth an uptrend that most central bankers seem to feel is essentially justified, given the improved outlook for growth later in the year.

    • Similarities between trading and poker, in both, you try to make optimal decisions on the basis of incomplete information. Money management (trading) and bankroll management (poker) are very similar - both are crucial to manage risks. Because in both, you have a luck/variance factor, without the right money management even the best strategy can lead to being broke without the right money management.
    • Forex stands for foreign exchange and refers to the buying or selling of one currency in exchange for another. It's the most heavily traded market in the world because people, businesses, and countries all participate in it, and it's an easy market to get into without much capital.
    • crazyCza and crazyZdo always love a fresh new thread ... from 2013     78% losers, 19% survivors, 3% thrivers - the cusps ... Generally speaking, most people who begin to “learn” to trade quickly experience that losses and mistakes seem to have a nasty tendency to be disproportionately way more costly than wins and being right are beneficial. There are so many other endeavors where that does not seem to be the case... so they move on.  Few persist in their “learning”  to pass the cusp where they can turn that (accurate for some systems, inaccurate for others) enigmatic impression and their performance to neutral / surviving ... and then even fewer persist ‘again’ even more assiduously to  turn wins and being right to being disproportionately more profitable than the losses and mistakes are costly...  Furthermore, most people don’t believe or see the necessity to ”learn” just as much about themselves as they do about objective trading methods, etc.  Most never realize that doing a ‘dual major’ in Self and Methods is required to get a good trading education and "learn" to trade. ... and, many who do realize the need still flunk out of one of the majors and never “learn” to trade.  Only a few persist in and complete both ‘majors’ ...
