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.

    • its a slow start for 2021, but BTC is having a blast, hitting the 40k mark, will it continue, though its back at 32k++right now
    • a fun perspective on MSM’s role in recent events https://www.hangthecensors.com/490535.html     plus more inauguration day / welcome to north venuazala tidbits ...  2,000 attendees at inauguration — and 25,000 military — just like ‘regimes’ in banana republics ... just sayin'

    • Date : 23rd January 2021. FX Update – January 22 – USD Holds gains & PMI’s. GBPUSD, H1 The Dollar has firmed up on a safe haven bid with the reflation trade having come to a firm stop. The USDIndex lifted moderately to a 90.25 high after basing out at a nine-day low at 90.05. The US currency gained only marginally against the Euro and Yen, but racked up gains of around 0.4% to 0.5% against the Pound and dollar bloc currencies. EURUSD ebbed back from an eight-day high at 1.2178, before recovering to 1.2188 following Eurozone PMI data, while USDJPY lifted to a two-day high at 103.70. Global equity indices corrected from record highs in the cases of the main US indices and the MSCI Asia-Pacific Index. Base metals are also markedly lower. Lofty valuations and an increasing level of concern about the Covid situation have warranted increasing investor caution. Covid restrictions have been implemented across northern China, and the new highly transmittable variant of the SARS-Cov2 coronavirus — aka the British variant, where it was first detected — has shown up as far afield as Beijing and Australia. The EU looks set ban travel to the UK, while the UK has already imposed much tougher international travel restrictions. The rollout of the Covid vaccinations globally has also been proving to be bumpy. Elsewhere, cryptocurrencies dropped sharply again, which will only add to their reputation for being too volatile for serious institutional investors to touch. Reports that the Biden administration has tighter regulations for cryptocurrencies on its ‘to do’ list have been driving cryptos lower. Bitcoin was showing an 11% loss on the day, as of the early London morning, at $30,860 — which is nearly 26% below the record high seen earlier in the month. The virtual coin earlier traded below $29,000 for the first time since January 1. Eurozone Flash PMI readings declined as lockdowns were strengthened and/or extended. The last minute Brexit deal may have helped to prevent a worse number for the manufacturing sector at least, and the decline in the Eurozone manufacturing reading to 54.7 from 55.2 was actually less pronounced than feared with the number still pointing to a solid pace of expansion. Services meanwhile are clearly suffering. The Eurozone services PMI dropped back to 45.0 from 46.4, driven largely by a sharp deterioration in the French reading, which fell to 46.5 from 49.1. The German index held up better than feared and dipped only slightly – to 46.8 from 47.0. The overall composite for the Eurozone came in at 47.5, down from 49.1 at the end of last year and supporting expectations for a technical recession over the Q4 and Q1 period. Across the Channel UK PMI data showed a woeful record for Services and came in much weaker than expected. The headline composite PMI plunged to 40.6 from 50.4 in December. The median forecast had been for a 45.5 reading. Pronounced weakness in the service sector drove the composite lower, with services bearing the brunt of the lockdown across the UK nations, which has been the most severe since last year’s ‘mother’ lockdown. The prelim services PMI headline dove to 38.8 from 49.4. The prelim manufacturing PMI fell to a headline reading of 52.9 from 57.5, which was near the median forecast for 53.0. Much of the manufacturing sector remains open, despite the lockdown. The drop in the composite reading, while sharp, is still less much less severe than was seen during early spring last year. There are hopes that the UK’s world-leading vaccination programme will start to see restrictions lifted from as early as mid February, by which time all the most vulnerable groups should have been vaccinated. Cable trades down to test 1.3650, down from yesterday’s high at 1.3745 and today’s open at 1.3729. Always trade with strict risk management.
