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 : 8th April 2020. April 8 – Europe and EUR update.Sentiment collapsed further in European session on the news that EU finance ministers failed to reach deal and also on the announcement from German institutes, which they estimated nearly 10% contraction in Q2, the sharpest decline since records began in 1970. This topped the concerns of pandemic and related shutdown of the economy.EU leaders will meet again tomorrow. Discussions on how to finance a European wide response package to the pandemic have not yet found a compromise. Demands for Eurobonds clashing with the red lines against mutualising debt in countries such as Germany, which would make the introduction of new financing measures a lengthy affair even if officials were to agree to such a step. The southern European states (especially Italy) are keen to have debt mutualisation (“coronabonds”) as part of the package. The most likely outcome is a use of ESM funds to finance immediate aid measures, coupled with funds from the EU budget and the EIB investment bank to finance economic measures not just through the immediate crisis, but to kick start the recovery once lock downs have been lifted.Last but not least for European economy, is the fact that ECB lowers collateral standards, to keep credit flowing. The central bank announced that it will temporarily lower standards for the collateral that banks can use to access ECB funds. The move is aimed at keeping credit flowing through the crisis and will also allow Greek debt to be used. Furthermore the haircut applied to collateral, which will allow banks to borrow more money against the same amount of collateral. As a result the ECB will take on more risk onto its own balance sheet, but the hope is that by strengthening banks’ access to funds the central bank can boost lending to households and businesses. For Greece it will also give the government more room to finance its measures to get the economy through the pandemic. The central bank stressed that the “measures are temporary for the duration of the pandemic crisis” and will be reassessed later in the year.Hence as risk-on has turned today into a risk-off, the EUR weakens so far today on USD strength. It will be very important for the long term stability of the bloc that there will be a clear signal of solidarity at tomorrow’s juncture.EURUSD concurrently declined by almost 0.5% in making a low at 1.0829, resuming the bearish outlook in the daily picture for the asset. Yesterday’s rally spread concerns whether the EURUSD possible trend revernsal however today’s swing lower again along with the decline for 7th consecutive day below 20- and 50-day SMA suggest that yesterday’s rally was just a correction.In the 1-hour chart, EURUSD is moving within a tight downchannel since 1.0925 peak, with lower ups and downs seen since then. Hence in the near term any recovery within the channel could be interpret as a correction prior a pullback. Intraday momentum indicators are mixed with RSI at neutral zone posting lower lows since yesterday, while MACD lines have been zeroed suggesting that bulls have lost the control today. Additionally, the mark of a hummingbird by Bollinger bands pattern, which indicates a bearish signal in the daily chart, could signal further weakness in the near term.In order the near term picture to turn to positive again, the hourly RSI needs to sustain a move above 50, while we need to see a swing outside the channel and above the confluence of the latest up fractal and the 20-hour EMA, at 1.0892. Meanwhile, in the medium term outlook, the asset is facing a strong Resistance area at 1.0950-1.0965 (50% Fib. retracement from 1.1146 downleg and 50-day SMA). A decisive breakout above this area could imply to the continuation of a recovery for the asset.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Successful trader is a myth. Everything depends on time and circumstance, also the behavior and approach used by the trader. Right time trade and right judgments can make all difference in winning and losing. 
    • Date : 7th April 2020. FX Update – April 7 – A wee bit more Risk. Trading Leveraged Products is risky AUDUSD & GBPUSD, H1 The commodity currencies outperformed some more, as did many developing-world currencies amid a backdrop of rising stock and commodity markets. Equity markets are amid day two of a rally pinned on tentative signs that the global coronavirus infection and mortality rates might be near to peaking. The Fed’s decision to finance new “payroll protection” loans has also bolstered the US economic response plans. AUDUSD has rallied 1.7% in printing a one-week high at 0.6192, while AUDJPY has rallied by 1.4% in making a high at 67.38. The Aussie dollar is now up 3% from last Friday’s closing levels. The Kiwi and Canadian dollars are also up. USDCAD has dropped to an eight-day low at 1.4011. The Dollar, Yen and, to a lesser degree, the Swiss Franc, have continued to underperform most other currencies. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex has declined by 0.6% in pegging a five-day low at 100.79, while EURUSD concurrently lifted by 0.7% in making a five-day high, at 1.0876. The pair is up by just over 1% from its Monday lows. The combination of risk-on positioning in markets and the Fed’s aggressive dollar liquidity provisions, which forms part of a crisis-era level of monetary accommodation, have been bearish tonic for the Dollar. Dollar underperformance saw USDJPY dip back under 109.00, though the Yen itself trader softer against most other currencies as its safe-haven premium is whittled down. Sterling dipped on the news that PM Johnson was moved to ICU and had received oxygen, although Downing Street stated that he was still conscience and that Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab will lead the UK government as long as Johnson is incapacitated. From lows of 1.2162 earlier, a weaker USD, has Cable rally over 170 pips to 1.2335. Next resistance is R2 and the upper Bollinger band around 1.2375, 1.2400 and then R3 at 1.2420. Support sits at 1.2300 and the Daily Pivot Point, a 50.0 Fibonacci level and 200hr moving average at 1.2250. Always trade with strict risk management.
