OK,

 

Sorry for polluting the thread. I hope the previous charts I posted are deleted. After reviewing the BBT presentation and comparing notes I think I may have made progress on synchronizing Gaussians. Any feedback is always wlecome.

Good evening all,

 

I have been attempting to learn this method for a while.

WOW, Look at you go! Thank you for posting!

Yup, was trying to drill myself by starting with volume only.

 

The theory being I'm too focused on price and not enough on volume-- trying to overcome that. :)

 

I also think there may be some way to determine not just traverses (by gaussians only) but also tapes + channels but I haven't figured that out yet.

My view of the day...

 

I think everyone would agree, you are in no way "polluting the thread". :)

 

Thanks for posting :)

I've noticed that your channel gaussians differ from mine. What color annotations do you use?

Can someone create a video of annotating charts, whether live (would be worth gold) or in hind sight? This would be more helpful than just posting a chart with a bunch of lines. People would learn much quicker this way.

 

Also, if anyone already has a video then please post it here! Thanks guys!

Great idea, but probably you would fall asleep after 30 seconds. LOL

I created the carry over thick green and medium blue trend lines by piecing together 5 minute charts for the current channel with the gap removed. I did the piecing together on another part of the chart not shown (like a scratch pad area) using the copy pattern drawing tool in TN. I then duplicated the trend lines over to the current day. The thick green RTL began on 10/1 at 16:05. The medium blue was from 10:30 yesterday.

I am still learning to develop a more consistent coloring convention across all days. :)

 

My larger focus is on the following principles:

 

The fractal nature of price movement.

The sequences of Price and Volume.

FTT's and VE's

Continuation and Change

Always asking where am I in the sequences, how fast are things changing, and WMCN.

 

A tape, traverse, channel (call them goats - lol!) could consist of 5 bars or take 5 days (more or less). As a Intraday trader, IMO, focusing on the above principles allows a trader to participate in the market regardless of the duration of various fractal sequences. Fortunately, all fractals develop in exactly the same manner. :)

Here is a daily view that I have been working on. The normal daily bars are on the top of the chart. The grey bars in the area below are generated by the copy pattern drawing tool in TN. I used this to remove the overnight gaps manually.

 

We are at an interesting point on the daily. I've annotated that the market is searching for a point 3 of the current green downtrend. We are about to CP4 as Jack has euphemistically described the point where the prior trend FTT is passed when looking for a point 3 of the current trend. A CP4 would cause me to fan the green uptrend that originated on 7/13. I must say, this bear market rally (red uptrend) is sure persistent.

 

One question for those following the thread about the MADA loop. When we FTT a trend, we want to see the dominoes fall and one by one eliminate the possibilities of WMCN. We want to see the following in order:

1. sequence completion

2. an FTT with a signal of change

3. decreasing volume to the RTL

4. increasing volume on the RTL BO and into the trend towards point 2

5. decreasing volume on the new trend retrace in the search of point 3

 

Can we rule out a CP4 at any point of the above points 1-5? My current understanding is that you can't and that is how I am interpreting CP4. What are people's thoughts on the subject. Here's a link to the clean page 4 I alluded to that shows the new point 3 region in bright blue.

Pre-filling the sequence log in anticipation of WMCN...

 

These are great, ehorn. Thank you for sharing!

Here is a current look at the DJI and the ES monthly bar charts for October 2009.

 

You will see resistance come into the picture now from price action of the 2004 - 2005 time frame on both the ES and DJI.

Hello all,

 

After a few month break from studying this method (and from trading in general) I have decided to start over and try to ensure I have a solid understanding of the fundamental tenants of the method.

 

So, it seems starting at the first of this thread is exactly what I need. :)

 

Attached is my attempt at the tape drawing drill from 7/06/09 using the ten cases. My intention was to draw every possible two bar tape correctly. If anyone has time to look over this please feel free to point out any omissions or errors.

 

Also, if backtracking to the start of the thread is a derail or distraction please let me know.

 

Thanks!

Spyder,

 

In this example there is a Dominant Lateral Traverse in the 3rd position to build a Channel.

 

1) Is this a valid scenario ?

 

2) Does the Lateral in this scenario as drawn ( Dominant Lateral Traverse ) take precedence and complete the traverse ?

    • 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.
