Still looking forward to seeing the answers for the first drill........

 

If you cannot apply your answer onto other exact same scenarios on additional market days (and arrive at the exact same conclusion), then perhaps, you did not arrive at the correct answer. The goal with this thread remains moving people to seek their answers from the market, rather than, from an individual.

 

Place some traverse lines on your chart, and see if things don't look clearer for you.

 

The market provided seven laterals today (7/10/2009). Try dividing them into two seperate groups.

Hi Spydertrader,

 

Could you comment on Orange Down Traverse? It's probably a Down Tape. Points One, Two and Three are all overlapped. TIA

Revised chart to include missing lateral. If you see any mistakes or corrections needed, please comment. Thank you!

 

How should the laterals be grouped? I noted C for laterals that appears to continue in the same direction, versus the those R that appears to change in direction coming into the lateral and leaving the lateral. Should L6 and L7 be the same lateral (double laterals) or 2 separate ones? It is the only lateral combination which has volume that increases in the middle of the lateral. Volume reduces in the middle of all other laterals.

We define Tapes, Traverses and Channels by each having certain characteristics which represent various geometric shapes. Unfortuantely, many people attempt to compare and contrast based on a visual derived from the Price Pane. Such a paradigm, quite frequently, creates opportunity for error. I recommend the lower portion of your chart in order to determine whether or not one has a Tape, Traverse or Channel.

Through Spytraders posts I have decided that a Lateral ends at the last bar that touches the Lateral, I did not use volume in this finding and I am not sure if my definition is correct.

 

 

Here are my lateral findings for today, I grouped then into..... Break Out volume that exceeded all previous volume in the Lateral and called it HVB [High Volume Breakout] and LVB [Low Volume Breakout] where the Break Out Volume was less that all previous Volume in the Lateral.

By adding the correct Gaussian Formations within the Volume Pane, a trader can know when the market has reached Point Two of the particular trend, Point Three of the particular trend, as well as, the Point in time where the current trend fails - and the next trend begins.

Hi Spydertrader

 

I look at the lower portion of my chart and found the additional infomations;

1. After 11:00 bar (oprn of) which breaking the RTL of olive up traverse and closes outside of Lateral Formation on IRV, I don't see any tiny tapes in different direction.

2. 11:30 OB (open of) begins a Lateral Formation, then Volume of Black and Red is decreasing.

3. Price bars are running inside the green up tape created by OB.

 

Besides the above obsevation, I rechecked Ten scenarios too. Still, I can't find the characteristics of a tape or a traverse. Do you have a better way to teach a slow person? TIA

I'll give the lats from 07/06 another go:

 

0950 lat begins with price moving higher on dec black vol (non-dom). Price exits this lateral in the opposite direction on increasing red volume.

 

1200 lat begins with increasing red volume (increasing over the first bar of pennant 1150) and the r2r2b2r sequence completes within the lat. Price exits the lat in the opposite direction and returns to increasing black volume.

 

1515 lat begins with increasing red volume (but decreasing volume when compared to 1505 first bar of pennant). r2r2b2r completes but the pennant remains active until 1555 bar. 1540 bar does not terminate the lateral because we require 3 consecutive outside closes when a pennant formation is involved.

 

Hi jbarnby

 

The analysis you did for "1st bar on Increasing Volume forming Dom-Lateral: and, 1st bar on Decreasing Volume forming Non-Dominant Lateral" is very helpful. It seems I don't complete understand your concep so far, especially OB for 1st bar involved. If it's not too mush for you, could you do the same kind of analysis for the seven Lateral Formations on july 10 ES chart? TIA

Well, I'm not sure I can be of much help as I'm also working to differentiate these laterals. Since Spyder did not comment on my post I assume I did not provide the correct answer...so I continue to work.

 

I know that there are two kinds of laterals, dominant and non-dominant. I believe that dominance is determined by how the lateral is formed, ie dominant bar or non-dominant bar. I also know that there is further differentiation required on the dominant side because some dominant laterals allow completion of the sequence within the lateral, whereas other dominant laterals require a BO or FBO. I've yet to find absolutely certainty as to how to differentiate the two types of dominant laterals, but I believe it may have something to do with the peak of the dominant bar. I've worked on these laterals for a long long time...but it has been a difficult and challenging process for me.

 

I've been working on this method for 2.5 yrs. Perhaps others who also have a considerable amount of time invested can chime in here with their ideas. I'm hopeful that through collaborative effort we can learn to see what the market is telling us.

Do you have a better way to teach a slow person?

 

Focus on creating Gaussians across three trading fractals. In other words, pay close attention to Volume.

 

Can you describe "Stitch"?

 

These represent stitches ...

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=12127&stc=1&d=1247452575

 

A Two Bar formation where Bar Two has increased Volatility compared to Bar One. In addition, the two bars have an equal high, or an equal low between them - but not both.

 

How does it fit into our analysis?

 

The answer here depends on context. However, by differentiating the various examples of stitch formations which develop on any market day, a trader can know the context provided by the market, and as a result, know the answer for each specific scenario.

Hi Spydertrader

Thank you for advise me to focus on Gaussians for three trading fractals.

 

May I ask you for the following help?

a) Do I have orange Tape or orange Traverse? Please see the attached.

b) Could you kindly place Gaussians across three trading fractals for the attaehed chart?

TIA

The market provided seven laterals today (7/10/2009)....

 

- Spydertrader

Using the definition that bars 2 and 3 must be inside bar 1 to form a lateral and that a lateral requires 2 closes outside of it to end the lateral, then I only see six laterals on the 10th July. I guess it could be data differences..........

 

I presume by "two groups" you mean continuation or change?

As a set, the seven laterals each fit into one of two subsets. How one chooses to define these subsets enables the trader to determine, in real time, what context the market has provided. However, we do not define these subsets by what happens after a lateral has ended.

So how do we define them then? Dominant and non-dominant?

Do I have orange Tape or orange Traverse?

 

You already know the answer. Should you not believe that you actually do know the answer, simply apply the exact same construct used for your orange lines onto another area of the same chart or another chart from a different day.

 

If you believe you have a certain thing, and after applying the same construct onto another day it appears as if your original idea doesn't work, then perhaps you need to apply a different construct. If things do work as expected, then the market has provided the answer you seek - as it always does.

 

Could you kindly place Gaussians across three trading fractals for the attached chart?

 

I've done this many, many, many times in the past. The fact that questions still exist in this area tells me that having me draw lines fails to transfer the importance of process to those with an interest in learning.

 

Therefore, this time around, I plan to create an environment where the answers come from the market itself, rather than, from me. In such a fashion, the individual learns the process involved with learning how to learn.

 

Everyone must learn to differentiate that which actually exists, from that which, they believe exists.

So how do we define them then? Dominant and non-dominant?

 

You may define them (to start) in any way you choose. It doesn't matter if you stumble onto the correct answer the first time through, or even if your definition represents some wacked out theory straight out of left field. The whole point is to begin a process of learning to narrow down the possibilities until you arrive at the only possible answer - which just happens to be the correct answer.

 

For example, let's assume someone decided to define the two groups of Laterals by using Bar 1 'color' (Bar 1 as 'Up' or 'Down' based on the color of the Price Bar). Easily, one could place all seven laterals into one of two groups - using such a defintion. However (as we all know), the Price / Volume Relationship operates with respect to a neutral bias, and as as result, 'Up' or 'Down' does not represent a correct orientation.

 

So, the trader learns 'Up' / 'Down' doesn't 'work' with resepct to differentiation, and a such, also learns the market requires another (more accurate) defintion.

 

You've chosen to define the Laterals as either dominant or non-dominant.

 

All that now remains is for you to check with the market in an effort to see whether or not such defintiions accurately represent all seven laterals on this specific day, as well as, on any other day.

 

HTH.

    • Brain Trend Signal Alerts is Client Side VTL indicator that plots buy and sell signals. This follows the short-term trend and is a great intraday trading tool. The indicator identifies the trend changes using candle high lows and Average True Range.  The red arrow appears when a down trend is identified and green arrow appear when trend changes upward.     For best results, Brain trend alerts can be used together with a long term moving average like the 200 period simple moving average. Buy signals are valid when the signal is generated above the moving average and sell signals are valid when they form below the moving average.   The indicator writes the current signal and last trade details on the information panel on chart. When a new signal appear, it raise an alert. BrainTrendSignalAlerts.zip
    • Ichimoku Alert is based on the Ichimoku Cloud charts. This is a simplified VTL Alert based on price crossing the Kijun Sen of ichimoku chart. The Ichimoku Cloud is a type of chart used in technical analysis to display support and resistance, momentum, and trend in one view. The Ichimoku alert takes the Kijun Sen and raises an alert when price crossover happens. This should be used together with an ichimoku chart or other indicators. A signal in ichimoku alert means there is a high probability that a new price wave with momentum can form. For traders using ichimoku charts, these alerts inform them that a trend change is occurring in ichimoku chart and they can switch to ichimoku chart and analyse the situation. In trading ranges, this indicator generates whipsaw signals, so always use it together with other indicators or ichimoku chart. Ichimoku Cloud indicator is available in vStore. Ichimoku_Alert.zip
    • Brain Trend 2 Is a short term signals indicator. It is used for intraday trading. Brain Trend 2 identifies the short term trend using Williams percent R indicator and average true range. When a short term trend is confirmed by the indicator, it plots semaphores on the bar to show the trend. Bars with red boxes indicate downtrend and bars with blue boxes indicate uptrend.   When a trend is identified, open positions in the direction of the trend. When red boxes appear open short position. When blue boxes appear open long position. It is more effective when coupled with other indicators. A moving average can be used as a trend filter.  Set the moving average period to medium term or long term like 50 or 100.   BrainTrend2.zip
    • #EURUSD #ANALYSIS #Forex #followme #socialtrading The EUR/USD pair fails to hold on to recovery gains as it trades near 1.1070 ahead of the European session on Wednesday.   The US #IndustrialProduction and #CapacityUtilization failed to please the #USD buyers as better than forecast prints of the ZEW Economic Sentiment for Germany and the Eurozone gained major attention. Also adding to the pair’s strength was the market’s risk recovery after Saudi Arabian diplomats showed readiness to overcome the recent damages due to drone attack within few weeks. Furthermore, news of the New York #Fed injecting funds through repo market and trade-positive headlines concerning the US, China and Japan also tamed the earlier #risk-off momentum.   #Traders have been #cautious since the start of Wednesday with eyes on the US #FederalReserve’s monetary policy meeting announcements up from 18:00 GMT. However, fresh trade/political headlines help extend the latest risk-on. As a result, Asian stocks report gains and the US 10-year Treasury yield remain around 1.80% by the press time.   Considering the high probability of the US Federal Reserve’s 0.25% Fed #rate, investors will be less surprised unless the US central bank offers less/more or no rate change. As a result, details of the quarterly economic forecast, press conference by the Fed Chairman #Powell and Fed’s Monetary Policy Statement will be the key to predict near-term market moves. The European Central Bank (#ECB) has recently shown its dovish bias and hence any hawkish statement from the Federal Open Market Committee (#FOMC) could be harmful to the pair’s latest recovery.   On the economic calendar, final reading of August month Consumer Price Index (CPI) from the Eurozone and the US housing market numbers could offer intermediate moves ahead of the Fed decision.   #TechnicalAnalysis Not only a falling trend-line since late-June, at 1.1090, but the 100-day exponential moving average (EMA) level of 1.1167 also could restrict pair’s near-term upside, which in-turn highlights 1.1100 and recent low surrounding 1.0925 as key supports.
