Just a suggestion. Group samples of Lateral Formations according to the Context/OOE.

 

Silly me...and there I thought that's exactly what I had gone and done...:D.......:

 

 

Here is one more schematic I did...

One thing i have learned to anticipate is spyder's teaching style tends to force a student to dig deeper and always remember that this is a price/volume method.That to me means to always use both the price and volume pane info for analysis of our data sets.I believe spyder purposely only included the price pane info when he posted this differentiantion drill to force a student to go get the volume pane info and combine with the price pane info to do the drill correctly.How do i know this? Because he says so on page 143."I did not intend for those working through the exercise to focus solely on Price." So what day is this drill post from? 12/18/2009 and 12/21/2009.

" 1. Tuesday (01-05-2010) @ 15:10 (all times Eastern and [close of] ES bar), the market provides a Lateral. Does this look the same or different than an example from The Lateral Formation Drill?

 

What were the outcomes of each?

 

What did (should) one learn?

 

2. Wednesday (01-06-2010) @ 12:15, the market provided another example of a Lateral Formation, which forms like another example within The Lateral Formation Drill. Does this example look the same or different than an example from The Lateral Formation Drill?

 

What were the outcomes of each?

 

What did (should) one learn?

 

3. Wednesday (01-06-2010) @ 14:40, the market provided yet another example of a Lateral Formation, which forms like a third example within The Lateral Formation Drill. Does this example look the same or different than an example from The Lateral Formation Drill?

This degapped 12/18-12/21/09 chart may help with the differentiantion drill compliments of double eagle.http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/attachments/34/16798d1261528702-price-volume-relationship-laterals.jpg. I added a few annotations i felt were important to read the containers.hth

I mean collect STATISTICAL samples of lateral formations for each distinct set of Context/OOE and then see how "the thing itself" look.

More from spyder on page 154 about how to differentiante sym laterals with boundary."Next, look at context (VE's, declining pace or accelerating pace, etc.), and finally, check the order of events. Can you 'see' a completed Volume Cycle before the formation of the Lateral?

 

Now, bring Volume back into the analysis. Price moving in the dominant direction (after a completed Volume Sequence) on decreasing Volume tells you a very specific thing." hth

More "clues" from spyder on reading a sym lateral with boundary on page 157." Today, I suggested whether the very same type of Lateral formed on increasing or decreasing Volume might represent a subtle difference - in other words, a way one can know how the market plans to exit the lateral in question." hth

And another "clue" from the spyder on reading sym lateral with boundary on page 161."In other words, we have defined something based on price, and we will use (later) Volume to note the differences amongst the various examples of things within this specific pile of Laterals (as defined above).

Please ignore my suggestion. I should not suggest something I don't agree fully. I maintain the position that context/OOE are SUFFICIENT enough to know that one knows in trading.

Hi All,

 

Been awhile since I posted on this forum. I wanted to invite everyone to a private meetup.com group I am starting here in San Antonio, TX. I plan on having monthly meetings where we will brainstorm ES charts and do Q & A sessions. I really like these forums, and have found them very useful, but want to form a local go to group in addition to all the great resources online.

 

I participated in the IB meetups years ago in Tucson, and found those very helpful. This group would be similar, but more focused towards active participants. If you live in the area and are interested in getting involved send me a pm for more details.

Here is something I keep thinking I have answered, but then I find myself questioning it later. I figure I may as well bring it up here, and see what the rest of you have to say.

 

Is it a requirement of an FTT that it be a higher high or lower low than the point 2 of the container?

 

For example, let's say I have points 1-2-3 of a down traverse. Price forms a small down tape after point 3, does not go lower than point 2, then reverses up and passes point 1, unarguably ending the container.

 

Volume does support the annotation of down traverse. The only thing that brings it in question for me is that dominant price movement after the point 3 does not pass point 2 before unmistakably breaking out and ending the container.

can you draw a diagram to illustrate your point?

What is the definition of FTT? Fail to reach the left boundary of a channel after point 3. Right? Anything say about point 2 on FTT's definition? No.

 

I feel that you get confused with range expansion in the morning trading hours.

Now that was an interesting post...do you have any links to the threads where this specific thing is discussed?

 

Thanks!

No, I don't maintain links. Jack mentioned about range expansion very causually in one or two lines in many old posts.

 

To many daytraders and swing traders, it is part of a very old common-sense knowledge. Every trading day, the market will start setting up an opening range. Then the dominant side of this range will be tested for range expansion, and if failed, the market will test the other side of the range, and blah blah blah.

Thought I post a chart for a change...ES and YM

Looked like a nice clean day, very few laterals. Thanks

 

Quick question, your first 1,2,3 in red. why is the line not touching the 3? It is the area in the circle.

I fanned it..had an original in there that touched the bar in question, plus the orange when i had to fan. At one point I took out the original and put in the one you are talking about...seemed to fit better.

 

Should have moved the numbers as well...thanks.

I installed the Trade Navigator trial version and performed the Upgrade. I could not degap the chart. The interface is a bit different from Spyder's description:

 

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/technical-analysis/6320-price-volume-relationship-202.html#post91723

 

Does anybody know how to degap the chart in the Trade Navigator?

 

Thanks.

 

As far as I remember you need to call TN technical support and request it. Then do an Upgrade via the blue telephone.

    • 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.
