It's interesting to notice that your blue up channel's pt2 black volume is a little smaller than its pt3 red volume.

 

Yes... This alternate view is similar to Gregor_S's.

My chart for today, one trade, 11 points. I just held all day.

 

At 15:25 (the pennant) looked to me as a signal for change (the lateral has ended on the previous bar and we're back into the up trend) as it gets broken on the downside on increasing red.

What did I miss here? Why isn't this a signal for change?

FWIW, I observe the following:

 

The lateral was dominant and volume gives increasingly higher peaks into the entry (i.e. no spike). The pennant was formed by decreasing volume. Pennant BO's typically create Increasing volume. The first bar was Pennant FBO on IRV followed by BO on DRV (Jokari?), followed by IRV with decreased volatility.

 

P.S. Nice trade sscott...

FWIW, from my point of view, there was a short term change there. Tape up to then, tape down to 15:40, and up to 10:35 today to finish an up traverse.

@ ehorn, can I assume the peaks you were talking about are at 14:25, 14:40 and 14:50?

 

@ cnms2, there hasn't been much discussion here on peak and trough analysis, except for your post noting peaks some time back. What have been your observations regarding them?

Not sure what you're asking ... Volume bars, peaks, peaks of peaks, through their absolute and relative levels define moves on all fractals. They help you stay on your fractal of choice. Although a skilled trader can probably trade almost whatever observable fractal he wants on any chart, for any given chart resolution there's an optimum tradable fractal that I believe to be the traverse level, or L2.

For example, generally you have rising peaks in the dominant direction and declining troughs in the non-dom direction. Though you have to take into consideration the typical midday declining volume pattern.

 

But on the ehorns blue traverse you mentioned a pt3 had a slightly higher volume peak than the pt2. A pt3 is typically a volume trough, and I would be looking at the peaks post pt3 to compare to a pt2 peak. Comparing dominant to dominant. This should apply to all fractals. So I would assume you were comparing the lower level fractal peaks at the end of those legs (of ehorn's blue up goat). And using those to suggest the non-dom 2 to 3 originally annotated might have been a dominant leg.

 

So short version, wanted some clarification rather than going on assumption on what you meant, and why. And do you have a differing view or other insights to add on reading the volume peaks and troughs?

 

Regards - EZ

Firstly: I believe that the only source to learn this stuff from is directly from Spydertrader's words (posted and spoken). Somebody else's interpretation may help, but it's more likely that it will introduce something inconsequential or even incorrect. Having said this, I also believe that sharing personal points of view, when taken at their face value can be useful. Occasionally people become defensive, sometimes delusional, but overall Spydertrader's forums proved to be of the highest quality.

 

Secondly: it is again my opinion that although all the information posted by Spydertrader and by Jack is of the highest value, to benefit from it the student have to carefully look at it both in the historical context it was posted, as well as at his own level of understanding of the method. Not all the aha's we have are real aha's that will stand the test of time ... and market. There are some nuances, even differences, between how Jack and how Spydertrader seem to trade. There is also different emphasis on certain elements of the systems presented in this forum and elsewhere. I believe that almost exclusively relying on what Spydertrader posted in this forum is a complete and profitable system.

 

Now, trying to quickly reply to your question: looking at ehorn's and rs5's charts from that day, I thought that both came to about the same conclusion on a fractal, but differed how they went to the next higher fractal. To me, it looked that ehorn's blue up goat wasn't probable because its pt2 and pt3 didn't fit the volume.

 

I believe that faster fractals show as volume formations having smaller amplitude, absolute and / or relative to slower fractals. The actual volume we see results from the superposition of all existing fractals.

 

In that particular case, it looked that we had a complete retrace down, and the resumption of the up dominant move at the end of the day (that itself is a retrace of the next higher fractal move). The blue up goat suggested, in my view, otherwise. If memory serves me well, that day was a down retrace, and the up move in the middle of the day was a retrace in that down retrace.

 

When considering the relative volumes of the pt1, bo, 2, 3, ftt, we should keep in mind that on different fractals a through might correspond to a peak. Still, it seems that always the picture, when correctly analyzed, is correct for each fractal observable on every chart. Obviously the typical pace throughout the day has to be factored into our analysis.

My view of last traverse sequence. As usual, comments welcome.

Thank you for posting your chart. Is your magenta a traverse? how did your figure out "sequence complete" is at 14:45? Your skinny gaussians don't seem to match any trendlines.

Yes, I use Spydertraders old medium blue/magenta color codes for traverses.

 

It is the first increasing red volume bar in the 3rd tape after point 3 of the traverse, hence I label it sequence completion.

 

Re: my skinny gaussians, remember that what is inside a lateral, is a different ballgame than outside. I especially use dominant laterals to "extend" my tapes in period of congestion/chop. In these situations, you can go down the rabbit hole and annotate 4th or even 5th level gaussians if you want (I don't :))

Looking only at the volume pane: trends and peaks.

Is this what you understand the gaussians should look like? If not, would you please post you chart. Thanks

    • 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.
