Thank you for the hint. When the smallest containers are made more carefully (widen for closes within the container, starting with the 9:15 bar), the gaussians are much clearer.

 

If the attached annotations are more correct, I still don't understand why the thick container is over and done with at the end of the third medium container. Is it that the ve's of the thick thing caused by the third medium container are at a higher volume than pt 2(thick)? Maybe reannotating the first medium with newfound care will show enough examples at the thin level for differentiation.

 

 

Now you just have to think in terms of fractals. Thick thing is nothing more than a medium thing on a larger fractal. And medium thing is nothing more than one of the three thin things of a medium thing on a larger fractal. :)

Spydertrader's 10 cases (Tapes) post looks only at bars, without mentioning their closes. So, I think that although those closes offer useful information about the market's sentiment, they're not significant for tape drawing.

Dax follow-up. I hope it can be helpful.

Thanks for the chart. This helps to clarify several issues I have been struggling to resolve. The 15:55 bar VE's the magenta LTL, so it cannot be an FTT of the magenta container. However, it finishes the gaussian sequence for the magenta. The B2B (for the next sequence on the same fractal) starts on the same bar so the VE hasn't caused price to "go around again" and our B2B doesn't start on an FTT. So clearly not all p1's are FTT's. Thank you for your help.

See question in chart snippet...

 

If you're looking for a traverse FTT, then the tapes for that leg must be completed. Where is your tape point 3?

There are 3 tape level BOs... and what appears to be an FTT. I don't understand why the FTT I marked in my original drawing isn't the traverse level FTT.

 

Edit: the pt 1, pt 2 and pt3 are for the traverse in the snippet... sorry for the confusion.

The market creates an FTT while moving from RTL to LTL, right? How does the market move from RTL to LTL? In a dominant or non-dominant fashion? Now look at the bar you highlighted. HTH.

 

Edit: Now, it is not only about the price but also about the volume :)

I think I understand your question, look at my order of events, anything with 'looking' is not coming into the present yet. My guest is at your orange traverse I was waiting for 4b to complete then 4c to complete then 4 to complete, lots of waiting I know!

I see Gucci already covered this one for you. Put another way, price showed you a pt3, volume didn't.

Fractal drill. Enjoy.

 

First question: "Why should one know, 35 minutes into the day, that our point two is not on the cards yet?".

Gucci, is that because the increasing red volume that occurs is on a bar that is a pennant break out, which does not change dominance (from black to red)?

 

Question 2 and 3 have me stumped, but I will keep thinking ...

Think in terms of "INSIDE". Why do you think I posted the chart with the rest of the previous day?

Think in terms of "INSIDE". Why do you think I posted the chart with the rest of the previous day?

 

The FBP breakout bar is outside the last dominant tape of the up traverse (hope my fractal descriptions are accurate), but is still INSIDE the up traverse-container carried over from the previous day (with whitish trend line and light green point 3).

 

A point 2 must always break the rtl of the previous trend, so that's why our point 2 is not on the cards yet?

 

With regard to questions 2 and 3:

 

I would have annotated the increasing red Gaussian up to the last red bar after the annotated pink point 2 (I think the time is 10:15), and then the point 3 on the black ibgs at 10:25 which you say is wrong. It is not clear to me, but the only thing I can think of is that although we have a point 2 with red dominance established, and thereafter an up-tape that breaks the rtl of the down tape, the volume is not perhaps 2b, in the sense it must be DECLINING BLACK after the R2R. This occurs on the way to the actual point 3 that you have annotated. But the 10:20 black bar IS declining, so I don't find my argument very convincing, but I don't have any other. :confused:

I've redone 10-13 to 10-15 several times now, and consistently end up in the same place (attached). A review of the newly posted drills, and the elitetrader.com discussion of VE's will probably yield new questions, but in the meantime any pointers to errors in my annotations would be greatly appreciated.

A point 2 must BE outside of the previous thing RTL. AND it MUST be preceded by X2X sequence of the volume. One of these conditions wasn’t fulfilled at the time in questionon on the trading fractal.

I didn’t say it is wrong. I said we do not have it at 10:25. When annotating REAL TIME we DO have a point 3 at 10:25. So your annotations would be right. But as future comes into the present the market corrects them and shows you the actual point 3.

 

 

It is not clear to me, but the only thing I can think of is that although we have a point 2 with red dominance established, and thereafter an up-tape that breaks the rtl of the down tape, the volume is not perhaps 2b, in the sense it must be DECLINING BLACK after the R2R.

The market moved to its point 2 (first dominant leg) creating the faster fractal thing underway. Such being the case you should anticipate the second dominant leg (2R) being created the similar way. So annotating REAL TIME at 10:25 (your provisional point 3)you anticipate the second dominant leg. This second dominant leg should be created by a faster fractal thing. So there is no way you should look for a signal of change at 10:30-10:40 area. Now try to work forward from here using the same logic in conjuction with volume sequences and you will also understand why we do not have a faster fractal thing annotated from 10:25 onward. (see the chart with the clue)

 

HTH.

This is a response to some specific questions asked by one of the users.

 

Hi Gucci,

 

Thanks for putting the charts and clarification. On your chart notes, you mentioned that a bar that VE the LTL would suggest a new point 3. Can you explain further why that is so in the context of the same chart you are describing ?

For clarification, it should be noted that this statement is not reliable. Example attached.

Not really sure what you are trying to point out. You used the same chart that Gucci was using so I am not sure how you are concluding his statement is not reliable.

 

Do you mind clarifying what you were trying to say?

I thought about the statement on the VE -- since VE can't have the FTT, we therefore need the sequence to be completed , therefore a new point would have to be formed to get the FTT of the container. In part, that would seem also to explain the M1 and M2 moves mentioned by Jack in some older threads -- on condition that the close is in the zone between the old LTL and new LTL.

 

Would that be right ?

The only thing to add is that not all of the VEs let you anticipate the new point 3. Some of them coincide with the completion of a faster fractal thing inside of the trading fractal. So you get the last 2X of the trading fractal AND the last 2x of the faster fractal which coincide, so to speak, and propel the price beyond LTL. You just have to pay attention and differentiate different types of VEs. In our example the market shot from RTL and beyound LTL on one bar.

 

HTH.

OK. Put it another way. Gucci's statement was true for the specific example that he used but it is NOT true to suggest that the 2nd dominant leg will always be built by a faster sequence just because the first dominant leg was built by a faster sequence.

    • EURUSD CONFRONTS A LARGER BARRIER AT 1.1257 LEVEL WHILE EXITING OVERBOUGHT POSITIONS EURUSD Price Analysis – June 4 EURUSD ‘s latest dip from a high of 1.1257 while vacating overbought positions to a level of around 1.1200 could pave way for the rally to recover. In recent days the awaited announcement of the ECB ‘s decision has risen and improved the euro – potentially putting the FX pair higher. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.1495, 1.1366, 1.1257 Support Levels: 1.1020, 1.0870, 1.0635 EURUSD Long term Trend: Ranging After seven daily progressions in a row, ranging at 3-month highs in the previous session’s level of 1.1257, EURUSD is now under some downward pressure and falling to the sub-1.1200 area. Sellers in the pair moved in following conditions of overbought (according to daily RSI). The pair is presently declining 0.27 percent at level 1.1203 and confronts initial support at level 1.1020 followed by level 1.0950 and eventually level 1.0870 (low). On the contrary, a 1.1257 (high) level breakthrough may aim 1.1366 (high) inching closer to 1.1458 (high) level. EURUSD Short term Trend: Bullish On the 4-hour chart, the Relative Strength Index has fallen underneath 70, exiting overbought conditions. Momentum stays upside-down and the pair shifts between the 5 and 13 moving average. Resistance lies at level 1.1236, a necessary step on the way to the top in the last few days, leading to a new high of 1.1257 level. The next significant level to note is level 1.1366 as seen on the daily chart. Short term support beckons at a level of 1.1183, a support line in recent days, trailed by a level of 1.1146, a high swing from April, and also a range sealer.
