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.

    • 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.
