Hey romanus,

 

If 14:20 was a lateral, what type would it be? How does it change the context?

It would have been a 'Dominant Lateral' which is created by price moving from p2 to p3 of something.

1420 bar can't be a Point 2 of the traverse which begins at 1400 for reasons previously discussed. And If 14:20 was a lateral then 1435 would have been a part of that lateral and not a Point 2 of the Traverse. And 1605 would not have been a Point 2 of the accelerated traverse, but instead of the faster fractal tape. And 1005 (10/22) would not have been the end of the Traverse sequence but instead of the faster fractal tape. Of course, this is just my opinion, meaning that I have developed a tendency to hallucinate things in a certain way, which may or may not be the correct way.:2c:

Thanks for the reply...

 

Does the market confirm this? Price moving from pt2-pt3 of something sounds like Non-Dominant movement to me... Why would we call this lateral "Dominant"?

 

More generally, how does one determine the 'type' of lateral the market is building?

... It seems to me that the existence or non-existence of the lateral beginning with 14:20 bar (10/21) changes the context.
Two possibilities, using rs5's chart: with and without a 1420 lateral.

While attempting to learn from the market, I operate under the assumption that the lateral that moves the price from p2 to p3 is different from the lateral that moves the price from p3 to the end of the sequence. Calling one 'Dominant' and the other 'Non-dominant' seems like a convenient way to label different scenarios.

 

...

Personally, I attempt to differentiate them on the basis of where in the sequence the lateral begins. In other words, I seem to hallucinate the differences between arriving at p3 and then beginning to move laterally towards the end of the (tape, traverse) sequence vs. arriving at p2 and then beginning to move laterally towards p3.

Hey romanus,

Apologies for the confusion. I just realized that 1435 is inside the previous traverse - which would make it irrelevant whether or not there was a lateral at 1420. All that of course is based on the assumption that there was in fact a previous traverse (which means that the annotations in the attached have to be corrected to reflect that). The assumption that there was a previous traverse is unfortunately not based on facts but rather my inability to hallucinate the alternative annotations.:rofl:

...I was suggesting that you posted a snippet with your P&V annotations, and your reasoning for starting and ending each lateral, to see what you're seeing. ...
I end the laterals when the price exits or /and certain types of OB & IBGS. I start them after pennants or EH.

Thank you for posting.

 

Your magenta arrows shows very nicely how the volume first contracts at SYM and then red volume is increasing with downmove of the price from 13:00 to 13:20 indicating bias to the down side. (13:00 is not bar 1 of a lateral, but the first bar of a series of flaws that follows it)

 

13:20 is bar one of the first lateral. And as is expected in laterals the volume becomes smaller across the duration of the lateral. There is a slight surge in volume (slightly larger red volume bar than previous volume bar) as the market tries to push outside of the lateral at 13:35 testing the lower boundary of bar 1 of lateral 1 (13:20 bar), however not power enough to start a directional move and it falls back into another lateral (2), continuing the lateral 1. Encouraged by the lack of power to the downside, market makes a surge to the upside at 13:50 (slightly larger black volume than previous volume bar) testing the top of bar 1 of lateral 1. The next volume bar is smaller even as the high of the previous price bar is tested. So still not powerful enough for a directional move and it falls into another lateral, continuing the previous two overlapping laterals. In both cases, the slight surges of volume at 13:35 and 13:50 are progressively smaller volume bars than the volume bar at 13:20, and volume is decreasing in height indicating that the laterals 2 and 3 are still part of lateral 1. The three overlapping laterals eventually come to a close after the second close outside of the boundaries of of all three bar 1s.

 

What I am not sure of is whether 13:50 is the first close of the laterals as it closed outside of bar 1 of lateral 1, or whether the count starts again after all three overlapping laterals are accounted for. As I was confused, I left all of it on there (lol - location of 1st close, plus kept laterals colors until 2nd closed bar outside all 3 overlapping bar 1s)

 

Any clarification welcomed.

I applied my interpretation of Spydertrader's posts #41

 

After completing the 'tape drawing' drill, and after one begins to 'merge' the individual 'two bar' tapes into longer trends which continue the current 'tape fractal,' stop annotating 'tapes' within Lateral Formations. Begin to note the significant shift in Pace which develops inside every Lateral Formation. Note as well the changes which develop as Price moves from inside a Lateral Formation to an area where the Lateral Formation ends.

 

and #110

 

The lateral formation continues until terminated with two closes outside the Lateral boundaries (created from the High / Low of Bar 1) - except where the 'two closes' form a 'flaw.' In such a case, we require a 'third' close outside the lateral boundary in order to have reached 'termination' of the previous lateral.

Fractals ... Cycles ... Goats.

 

The market signals its intention long time before your best trading point for your targeted time frame. It's up to you to do it right, early or late ... :)

To paraphrase the infamous MC commercial:

 

incorrectly identifying Point Two of the Traverse:

 

9.9 on The '1-10 Pain Scale'

 

subsequently assuming that the sequence which ended on the 1st bar was a Traverse:

 

5.9 on The '1-10 Pain Scale'

 

seeing the Price cross the 'CP4 green line of no return' by one tick before dropping 10 pts:

 

PRICELESS

 

:rofl:

I am having a problem reconciling two of the images that Spyder posted near the beginning of the thread. One image shows a Traverse, with Tapes and Channel labeled. The second image is the volume pane fractals. I have combined the images for attachment.

 

For the life of me, I can not see the Tape volume fractals on this Traverse. I have spent the last week or so on just this subject. Not just on this image alone, but comparing to other days of my own charts.

 

From the volume fractals image I see that each segment of a Traverse should have a full B2B2R2B or R2R2B2R representing the Tapes. Also, that each segment of a Channel will have the full sequence representing a Traverse. This is what I understand a fractal to be, each part being composed of a smaller complete part. If this understanding is off the mark, please tell me I am digging in the wrong hole.

 

So, with my understanding of the volume fractals this is what I get on the attached Traverse. First Tape is Dec Red, Dec Black, Inc Red, which does not fit R2R2B2R. The other two Tapes are similar in that they seem to be missing one or more parts of the volume fractal sequence.

 

I am hoping someone can disabuse me of my understanding of the volume fractals, or help me see how those fractals show up in the Tapes of the attached Traverse.

 

Thanks for any help :)

It's possible that the tape volume sequence isn't visible on the 5m ES for these particular tapes. See the link below.

Yes, for a down traverse a R2R tape, 2B tape, and 2R tape.

I don't see where dec red tape goes to a dec black tape. Could you doctor the pic?

The link below and series of posts below it may or may not help. As mentioned, sometimes you might not be able to see the full volume gaussian cycles clearly on 5min bars. The 1st clip you posted has tapes, those have everything required for tapes, all on the 5min ES. If you are trying to fit those tapes in with the BBT's, they are two different orientations and might not always mesh.

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/34/price-volume-relationship-6320-3.html#post71051

 

Notice on some posted charts on the 1st leg of a B2B there might be lower fractals that come together at the trough and finish on the up leg (2B). But on the 2B up leg, a r2b sub-fractal may or may not show up. The point being each leg may not have the same number of sub-fractals. And on a tape sometimes you have to go YM or maybe tick to see the full volume cycle. Hope that helps.

    • 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.
