Best Trading Platform for VSA

Recommended Posts

To trade VSA you don't need expensive set of Indicators. If you are new to VSA, the education with TradeGuider is good, but $5000 indicators are not worthy. You can get VSA education free in many websites. I saw a large thread in this forum on VSA, actually it is very good. I use TradeStation and THD indicators and I can easily spot it on my regular chart. You can get a free VSA indicator at TradersHelpDesk, it is based on Tom Williams book. That indicator is coded by a VSA user, you can get it free in their website. You can see this volume indicator in my attached chart. If you google there is lot of free stuffs you can find in VSA

Afraid I don't agree guys. I use Tradeguider to learn VSA which anyway was invented by the owner Tom Williams, he called it VSA. I paid less than $1000 for mine not $3000.

I also have never found a volume feed as accurate so would be interested to know where from? I am not connected with Tradeguider just have used it for some years and have found it a great aid to learning trading. Stephen Frankel

In addition to flimbo's very helpful HLC bar chart indicator you can get a Volume Price Analysis (VPA) indicator for NT and ToS. Where? Search on Google, it's easy to find.

 

Why am I not posting the link? I think the info that there is one available is enough for people who are really interested in this kind of analysis. For the people who want to have everything gift-boxed (somewhere above, someone even asked about an expert advisor for mt4 or for NinjaTrader source... :crap: - ... Just really think about that, only one minute....:doh: )

 

Show some commitment and do your own research and foremost LEARN the principle by diving into it. Believe me this will save you a lot of money.

 

Tom Williams learned this by only looking at volume and price bar, decades ago. I would think, that this is the reason why he traded successfully.

 

The TG software is IMHO for people who already understood the principle 100% for their comfort. Or maybe for lazy people, looking for an expensive way throwing money out of the window. And by money, I don't mean the purchase price! Keep doing it, there is 24/7 someone who is catching every :2c:, me included.

 

Register at the TG site and you'll get invitations on a regularly basis. Maybe you can get even the Book "Master the Markets" for free. If not, I would suggest to buy it for $99.

 

Read it at least 3-5 times as it isn't easy to grasp. (ask Gavin from TG how many times he read the book) If then you are still interested in it, THEN buy it, even for $ 6.000 because it will save you a lot of work!

 

PS: Maybe someone will post his search result right after my post... remember my words which are all MHO.

ProTrader .NET Station / PT multistation trading terminal shows an extra little bar chart for the volume, at the bottom of the chart beneath every candle, which I find convenient, and appears pretty standard.

 

But more interestingly is that this terminal also shows a volume graph updating in real-time in the volume column of the watchlist for each instrument, stock, etc. - and you can easily sort that column.

Depends on what you are trading. If you are trading Forex through MT4 you might want to check this out. I personally bought a copy from him a while ago, I received an update a couple days ago and it works pretty nice. You should still learn the concepts though, as the guy says, this is just a visual aid designed to help you determine possible setups more easily.

Any Bar/Candlestick chart with volume information would be good.

 

Is this not a common feature of most charting software? e.g. PT multistation shows volume info at bottom of chart window

PT multistation has some pretty unique automated trading functionality:

- visual advisor tool for beginners to graphically creat simple strategies on the chart;

- PTL bulider IDE for programmers, which supports MQL4, EasyLanguage and C# strategies, with back-testing, optimization, and debugging tools. You can import strategies into it.

Nobody sells you anything that would let you just follow indicators and click on buttons and money will just stream into your account. I wouldn't go so far as to say any trading indicator/system/advise sold is a scam, but there is no easy substitute to your own hard work, and adapting someone else's knowledge and technique to fit your own style. If you are a serious trader, then you must know your platform. Most good platforms allow you to write your own indicators (there aren't many platforms that qualify). I have read the VSA literature and have adopted a few ideas into indicators for my own use (sorry, don't ask. What I am willing to sell to anyone wouldn't be worth anything). I don't own TradeGlider, or another other system sold on the internet or anywhere else. I have no reason to say it won't work for some people. I will end with the only thing I remember from the one marketing class I took in college, many, many moons ago - in marketing, regardless of what is being marketed (e.g., cosmetics, cars, clothing, trading systems, etc.), the marketer is selling only one thing - HOPE - and people will pay a lot for it if the marketer knows the trick of the trade. After the pitch, the only thing left is the price. For the righr price, we buy our piece of hope.

 

Good luck.

 

M.A.T.T.

    • Near Term Outlook Unchanged as AUDUSD Trades Weaker   AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 22 The Aussie is holding weaker so far with the yuan softer on the day on a softer note for the equities and treasury yields. However, yuan has a relative effect on USD as the PBOC fixed the yuan weaker again today, reaffirming the notion that they will allow the currency to weaken but not too quickly.   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 0.7205, 0.7085, 0.6827 Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620   AUDUSD Long term Trend: Bearish But as seen in the daily picture above, the near-term picture in AUDUSD remains unchanged despite the pair slipping to session lows on the level at 0.6748 currently. Both buyers and sellers have more work to do to gain more momentum to push prices out of the downward range since last week.   While the forex pair is experiencing a stall, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bearish.   AUDUSD Short term Trend: Ranging However, AUDUSD needs to break the monthly support zone on the level at 0.6676, which is currently providing support for the momentum on the pair at the level at 0.6748.   The currency exchange rate will most likely continue to trade downward and flat for today waiting for the required volatility to change the direction.    
    • Staying Within Previous Boundary EURJPY Continues to Trade Within a Range   %2> EURJPY Price Analysis – August 23 In today’s trading session, the common European currency traded sideways against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair was trading below the moving average 5 and 13 since yesterday’s trading session. We may see bearish traders pressurize the currency pair towards the level at 117.50 before the end of today’s trading session.     Key Levels  Resistance Levels: 123.01, 119.88, 118.33  Support Levels: 117.65, 117.50, 117.00    EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish In the daily picture, the EURJPY pair may most likely maintain the price range during the next trading session. Alternatively, a breakout may occur downwards.  While the exchange rate has been trading within the range of the level at 118.33 and 117.50 since mid-August. The trend is bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the medium and long-term.     EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish Today’s trading range has been going negative and more, and that’s below the last trading month’s daily average range. On the flip side, we may see a change in trend with renewed upward strength.   Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high towards the level at 118.33 where further buy stops might get activated. Although with the level at 119.88 resistance intact, near term outlook remains bearish.  
    • Date : 23rd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.FX News Today A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET. Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street. Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures. The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan. Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution. New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures. Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years. Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July. Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher. The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole. GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency. Main Macro Events Today   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
