Ehorn,

 

Why did you terminate the 11:00 lateral at 11:20 or was that just a software artifact?

 

Hey LJ,

 

As configured, NT trunks the LAT shadowing with one bar out. To me, it appeared to be a dominant lateral. I believe dominant laterals take us to PT2 of something (I have annotated it as PT2 of the final DOM tape). I see a few possible ways to annotate the past few days (read I am lacking certainty here) and so tomorrow I will WAIT for certainty.

 

A wise man once provided some great insight. When one is lacking certainty as to the accuracy of his/her annotations of the sequences, then the only correct decision/action is to WAIT.

 

WAIT until the market provides certainty for the trader.

What I know about lateral formations

 

To start a lateral formation minimum 3 bars are required where bar 2 and 3 are contained within bar 1

 

It can be ended in several ways:

 

- 2 consecutive closes outside the lateral boundaries without forming a new formation with the exception when these 2 closes are flaws, then we need 3 bars outside the lateral

- an ibgs that pierces a boundary

- when a new lateral formation is created inside the lateral formation

 

There are 2 types of lateral formations that matter : those that start on or after pt2 (and before pt3) being non-dominant lateral formations

and those that start after pt3 being dominant lateral formations

 

Feel free to add missing things/make corrections

Correction, that ibgs bar must be on increasing volume in order to kill the lateral

For the purposes of this discussion, I don't remember Spyder mentioning the IBGS effect, so, IMO, it may or may not be operative.

Actually, the answer does not lie with Spyder, but in the charts.

Take a look at the attached Chart snip from today (08/04/2009) ...

 

What did the market form?

How do you know?

 

If you know neither answer ...

 

How many different ways can you annotate the chart snippet? Test to determine which of those ways represent the only correct method.

 

HTH.

It appears to me that the market formed a 5 min ES level Traverse, based on gaussians.

Three Different Viewpoints ....

 

but only one represents the correct answer as provided by the market.

 

Remember, this isn't about how one 'views' the market, or how a trader 'interprets' the market, or even, about how one 'sees' the market (or any other gradient verbiage). This is about differentiating that which you believe you see, from that which, the market as actually provided.

 

Whatever a trader believes they see in the chart snippet, must also apply to every other thing on the same fractal. If the solution does not, then it cannot represent the correct answer.

 

Why something is correct or incorrect represents a far more important thing than simply obtaining the correct answer itself.

When we look at the first R2R2B2R (13:00-14:00) we think down traverse. However, when price goes through its left trendline, it does so on decreasing volume. This means that we do not have a complete traverse. As such, 14:40 becomes the new pt3.

After our new pt3, we can see a R2R forming, meaning a new faster fractal is forming, that also has to complete. When this fractal finally completes, we can see that it forms an FTT.

At 15:50 price does go through the left trend line on increasing volume, and we have confirmation that the down traverse has completed, and an up traverse has started.

My take. Mine is different from ehorns and romanus'.

 

Regarding the differences,

Spyder, have you changed something about the coloring functions in Trade Navigator since your PVTools? - my 1330 & 1335 bars are colored differently than yours. I assume we both use Genesis' datafeed..

 

If my non-dominant tape from the above period is wrongly annotated, I miss R2R2B2R in my pink lateral, hence it is invalid.

In the annotation drill snippet (across the first 9 bars) we go:

 

Stitch

FBP

OB

FTP

FBP

OB

 

What do we know about flaws?

 

@ 14:10 we begin moving up:

 

First bar DBV

Second Bar DBV

 

Is there something about tapes TO DV?

 

IBV does show up at 14:20...

 

How does it form?

 

 

If I review the sequences through here - I can only conclude one correct way to annotate this snippet which applies to every other thing on the same fractal.

Spyder, have you changed something about the coloring functions in Trade Navigator since your PVTools?

 

Yes, but I have yet to completely code for all possible scenarios. Due to the limited capability of the Trade Navigator coding language ('TradeSense' doesn't currently allow for global / state variables or contain a 'looping' function), I only realize that the bar coloration code has missed a specific case scenario when I 'see' it form on the chart (When a specific example has no coding function, the current settings render the bar color blue instead of red or black). Once completed (hopefully, by the end of next quarter), I plan to make the changes available for free.

Gotta go with romanus. Let's see.

 

Obtaining the correct (or incorrect) answer remains far less important as understanding why (or why not) a particular solution represents a true and accurate statement (or not).

The market is very nice - it has told us this morning which way was the only correct way to annotate that snippet and so we can know WMCN :)

The reference to going with romanus was not pulled out of the ether. It was simply a statement of agreement with his logic. It had nothing to do with being right or wrong, good or bad, etc.

 

If the market shows his/my interpretation to be in error, then it simply means more work has to be done which, these days, typically involves correcting a fork error.

 

For me, the YM low at 6:54 finished the 'traverse' call. ES followed suit shortly thereafter.

 

It is very clear to me Spyder, that since June of 2006, you have been iterated countless times by the market. That the market will continue to do so to you and others is not surprising. Your help is greatly appreciated but there is likewise no doubt in my mind, that you have been helped by the contributions of everyone else studying the method.

 

So let's see. WMCN?

    • Date : 1st April 2020. All eyes on Commodity Currencies.Asian stock markets are lower, while European and US equity index futures are showing losses of around 3%. Data out of Asia today were nothing short of dismal, showing manufacturing contracting across most of the region, highlighting the economic toll that virus-containing measures are having.The main concern remains that the massive global stimulus measures simply won’t be fully effective while many economies remain in a state of lockdown of as-yet unknown duration.Commodity currencies have come under pressure as the winds of risk aversion picked up again.The Canadian dollar was the main loser so far today , while it has remained under pressure with oil prices sinking back toward major-trend lows as crude storage facilities burst at the seems from excessive supplies.USDCAD has gained up nearly 2% in making a 1.4230 high, though the pair so far has remained below yesterday’s peak at 1.4350. This is due to the fact that crude prices are down by over 65% year-to-date. This level of price decline in Canada’s principal export, while it sustains, marks a significant deterioration in the Canadian economy’s terms of trade. Given the glut of crude flooding the market, and given that supply is increasing as demand will remain weak for a historically protracted amount of time, Canadian Dollar is anticipated to remain apt to underperformance. The likes of the Norwegian krona, which like the Canadian dollar is an oil-price correlator, and many developing world currencies have also come under pressure.From the technical perspective, USDCAD overall outlook remains positive with asset holding above all three daily SMAs since January, and momentum indicators positively configured. RSI at 59 recovery from a pullback last week, Stochastic rebound from oversold territory and MACD presents some decline of the bullish momentum but holds well above 0. That said, USDCAD revisiting its recent 17-year high at 1.4669 seems likely before long.Intraday meanwhile, the rebound of USDCAD looks to run out of steam, however only a move below 1.4050 could suggest a reverse of the outlook.AUDUSD tipped over 1% lower in making a 5-day low at 0.6064 amid weaker Gold prices (end-of-quarter flows). The Aussie still remains comfortably above the 17-year low that was seen on March 19th at 0.5507. The Kiwi dollar has also taken a tumble.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 31st March 2020. Dead cat Bounce!Dead cat Bounce! A new term? Not really but definitely something that we haven’t seen for more than a generation.In general, investors throughout the years invented this term as a follow up to a market free fall. By definition, the “Dead cat Bounce” is simply a market phenomenon that translates into temporary small and short-lived rebounds of an asset’s price within a prolonged period of downside. This term is based on the idiom that “even a dead cat will bounce if it falls far enough and fast enough“. Hence in the financial market it is said that even if an asset falls with a considerable speed, it would rebound as even a dead cat would bounce. However, every time there is a rebound, the overall initial trend is then anticipated to resume, bringing the bearish influence back into play.In addition, the phenomenon can occur in any market, yet is particularly prevalent in equity markets. It is often the case that it is considered a continuation pattern.Why are we raising this topic now? This March, was the first time after Black Monday 1987 that we have seen the worst intraday selloffs in stock markets. Since February 20th, the stock market entered an aggressive bear market with a few days of an absolute rally. An example was the 13th of March in which the stock market roared back in the biggest one-day rally since 2008 after its worst single-day crash in 33 years just a day before. This is the classic dead cat bounce.If you closely observe stock market behaviour in March you will notice that there is a dramatic decline, with a number of days when the market reversed some of its losses, but failed to take the bait, and eventually fell back down again. This is a situation of portfolio managers wanting to sell some of their positions and when they see some strength in the market, decided to unload. This is what we call a “dead cat bounce” after it falls from high enough. Remember however that not every correction/reversal can be interpreted as a dead cat bounce.Theoretically this term is defined as the term in which,   A stock in a severe steep decline has a sharp bounce off the lows. A small upward price movement in a bear market after which the market continues to fall. Unfortunately, I need to highlight that there is not an easy way to determine in advance whether an upwards movement is a dead cat bounce which will eventually reverse quickly or whether it is a trend reversal. There is nothing easy in identifying the bottom of the market. However to a large extent a dead cat bounce is a retracement, in comparison to a reversal, i.e. it is temporary.Dead cat bounce as a technical analysis tool and more precisely as a continuation pattern could be tradable from short-term or medium term traders. Having explained this phenomenon, a follow-up article will elaborate on how market participants can trade a dead cat bounce.Always trade with strict risk management.
