Equality comes from volume and not price.

 

Not exactly correct. Volume LEADS price. You need both to determine equality. No exceptions.

 

And for the record, the blue and red containers are absolutely equal and of the same fractal.

 

Volume moves price through the blue container with pts 1,2,3 ftt and a completed volume cycle. Price then exits that container and builds a FF container down to 1035. The first (skinny red) container is not equal to the blue. It has pts 1,2,3 ftt but no volume cycle. We have an implied R2R achieved from crossing the blue RTL, but no increasing volume within that container to complete the cycle. 1025 is actually decreasing volume because volume must be tested against the first bar of the sym pen (1015). As such, one knows with absolute certainty that the skinny red container is a faster fractal than the blue. And as further price/volume action develops one also knows that we will require THREE of these ff containers, each of them with pts 1,2,3 ftt, to complete the slower red container. The slower red container is indeed absolutely equal to the blue.

 

I've no doubt that some of you will debate the assertions made in the preceding paragraph. I could care less. The reality is that these facts came directly from Spyder during an hour long video chat with myself and my study partner five years ago. It is what it is and there's no other (correct) way to view the market.

Who is is disputing that? For the record, Spyder clearly stated that. The reason of equality is under discussion. Blue container volume cycle, red container volume cycle.

 

volume cycle one container = volume cycle three containers

 

Focus on the words volume cycle.

 

What are you struggling to see?

You disputed it. You implied that the red container was demoted because what preceded it was a ff. Your words, not mine.

There is no other way to view the market. Blue = Red . What are you not getting? I suggest you go back and listen to your hour long skype session. You have missed something critical. Order of events and context. Increasing volume over a sym pen is just that. It is not an automatic return to dominance. Volume leads Price. Always. And without exception.

I SAID blue equals red. You are the one who CLEARLY disputed it when you asserted that one is a FF and one is a Traverse. What are YOU not getting?

 

I was obviously misguided when I read some of your post from May 2015 and assumed you were still struggling and/or had unanswered questions. Clearly you have it all under control and are prepared to lead the learning for those still working to resolve issues. I wish you well and won't clutter your thread any further.

 

But for those of you still learning, Mandelbrot's assertion that Increasing volume over a sym pen is just that is absolutely incorrect. Increasing volume following a formation MUST be compared to the first bar of the formation. Spyder never published that information in this thread - but he said it to our group a hundred times. You can bank on that being the absolute truth.

Please dont put words in my mouth, I did not demote anything. What does that even mean.

 

At the end of the blue container, I had a FF traverse. WMCN but a FF traverse to make a traverse, not a traverse but a faster fractal traverse. This method is binary 0,1

 

I will show you the beauty in this method, lets say you thought the blue container was a traverse (hypothetical) Very soon afterwards the market will tell you WWT. Spyder stressed that all the time and it allowed you to get back on the right side of the market.

 

(The red container on its own is a traverse ignoring everything else. I was pointing out the red container is equal to the blue container. The red container cannot be a traverse (in this context) since the blue container was not a traverse.) Food for thought

 

WMCN = What must come next

WWT = What wasn't that

 

Why are you still struggling with this after the skype conversation ?

 

Spyder discussed the increasing volume over pennants in the Vegas conference. It was not a secret. It just means that, like decreasing volume just means that. Context is KING. Learn to differentiate.

 

PS - Arguing with a troll is a lot like wrestling in the mud with a pig, after a couple of hours you realize the pig likes it.

 

You were not at Vegas or NY when they did the introductions. So what is your group exactly?

Lastly, for any of you (except Mandelbrot) still hard at work trying to put together the pieces of this method - I would be happy to give you my time this summer. I typically don't trade as much during the summer months as I enjoy spending the days with my son, so I have quite a bit of free time. I maintain several blogs on this method and would be delighted to share this information with anyone serious about learning. But I will not share any further info on this thread. It's not worth the hassle. There is no charge - this is completely free and will only require your time and dedication to learning. If interested, send me a private message along with any questions you have regarding my experience/knowledge. Best to all.

Déjà vu, remember end of last year, weekend workshop? Everyone knows you make your money by "mentoring" as opposed to trading. If you cant make money trading, do the next best things and sell related products. A joke among real traders.

 

I would love to hear back from those that attended or anyone else you have mentored.

    • Date : 23rd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.FX News Today A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET. Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street. Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures. The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan. Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution. New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures. Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years. Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July. Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher. The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole. GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency. Main Macro Events Today   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
