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.

A Tape...

Volume...

 

Yep! (small rudders)

 

 

I am a perennial "FFJ"... (Friggin' Fractal Jumper!) :doh:

 

Thanks Spyder

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.

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?

    • MASTER TRADER JOE ROSS PASSES ON Dear Traders, We are sad to inform you of the passing of Master Trader Joe Ross on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 87. He went peacefully doing what he loved, by taking care of Loretta, his wife of 62 years of marriage and teaching his students from every continent how to trade. Joe has always been a free spirit and loved the trading world being his own boss. He quickly learned that teaching others was his true passion. The joy of educating those about a system in which he had true confidence and to see others come into their own. That was his greatest pleasure. He was proud to be a devoted Christian and combined spirituality with trading. Our condolences to our traders and students for the loss of a mentor and close friend, some would even go as far as saying a “father-figure” and he wore that title proudly. Master Trader Joe Ross’ passing came upon us unexpectedly and suddenly. Again, we would like to send our condolences to those who lost a mentor and a friend. Joe, you will forever be in our hearts. Who is Joe Ross? Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of “The Law of Charts™” and the “Traders Trick Entry™.” Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 80’s caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach. Joe Ross has written twelve major books and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. His file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent is huge: As one student, a successful trader, wrote: “Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading.” Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. He is listed in “Who’s Who in America.” After 5 decades of trading and investing, Joe Ross still tutors, teaches, writes, and trades regularly. Joe is an active and integral part of Trading Educators. He is the founder and contributor of the company’s newsletter Chart Scan™. “Master Traders Joe Ross was one of the most eclectic traders in the world. And he remains one of the few best mentors I have, alongside, Dr. Van. K. Tharp (may he live long), and one or two others. His teachings and insights into the markets have contributed to making me who I am today. He also talks about the spiritual side of trading, concluding that trading is no sin.” – Azeez M. “The trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader. He explained to me that his material will never go out of date, only the technology. Recently, we updated several of his hardback books into eBooks and he was right. From making trades over the phone to the “pit” then to opening an online account, my how things have changed. But he is correct about his methods, they will continue to apply to the markets regardless of how technolgy advances.” – Martha Ross-Edmunds (Joe’s daughter) Joe Ross’ Trading Philosophy: “Teach our students the truth in trading — teach them how to trade,” and “Give them a way to earn while they learn — realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader.”   IN MEMORIAM: Joe Ross (RIP)   Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • BITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTIONBITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTION Azeez Mustapha 14 October 2021 | Updated: 14 October 2021 New reports from Glassnode show that despite the recent price surge in Bitcoin (BTC), long-term holders have shown no intention to liquidate and realize profits yet. The blockchain analytics provider also revealed that the percentage of BTC supply held for at least three months reached 85%, a new all-time high. Citing data from Glassnode, famous Chinese crypto analyst Colin Wu illustrated the recent behavior of Bitcoin holders and their attitude towards the benchmark cryptocurrency. The analyst detailed that the percentage of long-term holders that have not moved their coins in over ten years stands at 12.3%. These tokens are deemed dormant for this reason. The analyst further noted that the percentage of long-term holders that have not transferred their coins between two to three years and three to five years stands at 10% and 12.26%, respectively. Finally, the highest percentage of long-term holders were those who have refused to move their coins between the last six months to twelve months, standing at 19.5%. That said, 85.14% of BTCs have not exchanged hands for at least three months, a new record high. In July, Bitcoin struggled to keep its head above the $30,000 mark. Today, it has almost doubled this number, but investors remain steadfast in holding their coins. Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — October 14 As predicted in our previous analysis, BTC witnessed a sharp correction to the $55,000 – $54,000 pivot axis from the $57,500 level over the last 48 hours. This correction found immediate support from the $54,000 level, which triggered a rebound to a new five-month high at $58,500 earlier today. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart While the price currently rests around $57,500, we expect a bull run to the $59,000 resistance over the coming hours and days. Meanwhile, our resistance levels are at $58,000, $59,000, and $60,000, and our key support levels are at $56,700, $56,000, and $55,000.

    • Date : 15th October 2021. Market Update – October 15 – Stronger equities dampened the safe-havens! Q3 earnings season has gotten off to a strong start, with big banks largely shooting the lights out on revenues and earnings. Incoming data was constructive as well, with jobless claims coming in at pandemic lows, while the rate of PPI growth slowed. All 11 S&P sectors are higher. Bulls are in control, both in the bond market and on Wall Street. – Overlooked the hawkish Fed implications from the record strength in PPI and the lowest claims readings since before the pandemic. Yields declined and Treasuries are in the green on short covering and dip buying, recovering from the recent aggressive selloff. US Treasury yield has lifted 1.8 bp to 1.53%. China: will loosen restrictions on home loans and boost lending & bank added enough medium term funds to keep liquidity in the system steady. Equities up. JPN225 managed a 1.6% gain and US futures are also higher, led by a 0.4% rise in the USA100. Oil lifted above $81.99. – Prices quickly backed up after a larger than expected stock build in the US. Improved market sentiment, which has lifted global stocks, commodity prices and bond yields, is also weighing on the safe-haven Dollar. FX markets – USD dropped, Yen declined. EURUSD retests 1.1600 mark, Cable at 1.3689, USDJPY touched 114.16. European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is slightly higher, US Treasury futures slightly in the red, as stock futures move higher in both Europe and North America after a good session for equities across Asia overnight. Market sentiment improved and GER30 and UK100 futures are currently up 0.4% and 0.3% respectively, while a 0.4% rise in the USA100 is leading US futures. EGB yields had dropped back markedly yesterday, but in the UK money markets are still bracing for an earlier than expected lift off on rates, which ironically is actually helping long rates to come down. Today – Today’s data calendar is unlikely to change the overall picture, with only eurozone trade data for August and some final HICP readings on the agenda. Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.60%) Breached 80.55. Up for 7 days in a row. Currently faster MAs keep pointing up, MACD signal line is at 0 & histogram trending higher. RSI at 82 & Stochastic at 94 but both sloping down, all indicating further upwards move in the medium term but possible pullback in the short term. H1 ATR 0.123, Daily ATR 0.810.
