Hi Spydertrader

 

I know we have to move Gap for ES (or YM) trading. Is it suggested to move Gap for equities trading? TIA

if you think the market is fractual good luck with that, volume does not always show show trend, volume can and does lessen in strong trend moves just the same as high volume no price.

 

thanks

both possibly indicating a change in trend?

 

decreasing volume and increasing price = change.

increasing volume decreasing price (velocity)= FTT.

I'll chime in with a response to treeline and NYCMB's questions.

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/34/price-volume-relationship-6320-160.html#post91418

 

I'm sorry that I didn't respond earlier, but I had personal things I needed to take care of this past week. First of all, as treeline wrote the line weights and numbering on my chart imply that I viewed those several thin weight guassian trends in question as being on the same fractal. I suppose the confusion arises from one not seeing a full volume cycle in those cases. Let me propose a different way of looking at things. This will give you insight into why I annotated this area the way I did.

 

1. Volume cycles always complete across all fractals.

2. The market's volume cycles are not bound to the bar duration that we choose.

3. Therefore, the volume cycles don't always "look" like we think they should look like. Even though two volume cycles are on the same fractal one might exhibit the traditional "look" and the other might not.

4. If we can differentiate what the volume cycle "looks" like in these varying situations we can arrive at certainty in real-time (with just our ES 5 min chart).

 

So here is my rationale behind the first two containers of the day (11/24) that are in question. Let's call the thin green container from 11/23 16:00 to 11/24 10:00 “thin green 3 container” (the third move of the medium weight trend) and the thin brown container from 11/24 10:00 to 10:25 “thin brown 4 container” (the fourth move of the medium weight trend).

 

thin green 3 container:

I see a volume trough at 11/23 16:10 and a volume peak at 11/24 9:35 which gives me a thin weight b2b. Next we have an IBGS bar (11/24 9:40) and an EH bar (11/24 9:45) on decreasing volume which gives us our 2r. Finally we have our increasing volume peak at 9:50 giving us our 2b. Is the problem that you don't see a red bar in the price pane or volume pane to draw in the 2r like you would think you should have? Because of the fixed bar duration you might not see any red in the IBGS bar, but it surely must be there. Likewise I see red volume in the EH bar as price at some point travelled down to the low of the previous bar. It just so happens that it closed above the open and the software is coded to color this as a black bar.

 

So if we make an assumption that the thin green 3 container indeed warrants a thin weight guassian cycle, what do we make of the thin brown 4 container? In hindsight, one would have to conclude that a thin weight guassian is warranted for the thin brown 4 container because of the simple fact that the 10:50 bar exceeded the 10:00 bar. Here's why I is see a completed volume cycle in thin brown 4 container even though it doesn't "look" like one would think it should.

 

thin brown 4 container:

There was a 10:00 new homes sales announcement that one should have been aware of. One should anticipate declining volume into the announcement (9:55-10:00) followed by increasing volume at the announcement. We get that on the 10:05 bar giving us our thin weight r2r. Notice that the 10:05 bar had more volume than the highest volume of the thin green 3 container. In my opinion, this is further evidence that the thin brown 4 container is on the same fractal as the thin green 3 container. We went from increasing black to increasing red in the relative peaks between the two containers. I just don’t see the thin green 3 container and thin brown 4 container area as being part of one big thin weight guassian when the 2r is has a higher volume peak than the b2b. However, I would propose that you could see this phenomena across equal weight containers as we make our way, for example, through a typical U shaped volume day. Therefore, I pegged them as being separate volume cycles of equal weight. The next question is where is the 2b of the thin brown 4 container. I view two things happening at once transposed on one another. You have a declining volume from the 83k 10:05 bar mixed with the thin weight volume cycling. The 83k volume news bar could be anticipated to be unsustainable volume wise. One would anticipate declining volume going forward especially since there was a 10:30 crude announcement which we should have a volume trough before. Sometimes the declining volume masks (or dominates) the cycling and we don't see the 2b trough to the 2r peak. What we do see is the 10:15 IBGS bar giving us our 2b. You can also see the volatility compression and then expansion across the 10:05-10:20 bars to see the retrace. One can further take into consideration bar overlap on the 10:10 to 10:20 bars to see the retrace. The 10:20-10:25 bars show price coming off the point three and into the trend. WMCN doesn't come though (increasing red) which indicates change and by implication tells you there was a completed volume sequence. The 10:35 increasing black OB after the crude announcement and the following bars bear out this hypothesis as the 10:50 bar breaks the high of the 10:00 bar.

 

You might agree or disagree with what I wrote, or more importantly the market might agree or disagree with some or all of what I wrote. However, this at least gives an insight into why I drew what I drew on the chart. Hope it helps.

For those individuals who have an interest in using the Trade Navigator ' Automated Gap Removal Tool' (and the 'Freeze Trend Line Slope' Function) please see the instructions below.

 

Step One

 

Phone Genesis Customer Service and indicate you wish to enable the Spyder String for the Gap removal tool.

 

Step Two.

 

Click the telephone icon located in the upper left corner the Trade Navigator Software.

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=19910&stc=1&d=1268250067

 

Step Three.

 

Within the 'Update Data' Dialog Box, select the 'Download Special File' Option. If not already there, type the word 'Upgrade (without the quotes) into the box. Clcik Start.

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=19911&stc=1&d=1268250067

 

At this point, the Upgrade Process Begins. Once completed (and after Trade Navigator has restarted), move to the next step.

 

Step Four.

 

"Right Click" any chart and choose ' Edit Chart Settings.' Within the 'Chart Settings Dialog Box,' Highlight the word "price" directly under Pane 1. Next, check' 'Remove Overnight Gap' located in the bottom Right Corner of the Dialog Box.

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=19912&stc=1&d=1268250067

 

Click 'OK.'

 

Once completed, the TN Software will automatically remove all overnight gaps enabling each day's opening print to occur exactly at the previous day's (16:15) closing price.

 

Also, to use the 'Freeze Slope' Function, simply grap the end of any trend line while holding down the 'Control (CTRL) Key' on your keyboard. Doing so will allow any trader to lengthen (or shorten) any trend line without changing the slope of the trend line itself (remains exactly as annotated).

 

HTH.

Just a Quick note for those who may have already read my previous post. I have edited the post instuctions in order to have 'Calling Genesis' appear now as Step One - instead of Step Four.

The tools work great. The charts are so much cleaner than when using the copy pattern tool.

 

One little glitch when using the freeze slope tool. It works fine for trend lines. But if you use TN's trend channel, sometimes the channel will rotate at a fast rate, instead of extending/shortening. If it does that use the end of the other trend line instead.

 

There's no rhyme or reason, sometimes the LTL does it, sometimes the RTL. And it's not the top or bottom one consistently. Couldn't nail down any consistent pattern. So if grabbing one line is a problem, use the other.

Today's chart attached. I focused on marking the volume of all lats as non-dominant. Sorry about the dots in the volume pane. I'll try to remember to remove them from now on.

 

What's the general consensus about acting on signals only at the close of a 5-minute bar? It seems like, due to the nature of the market and the ability to trade on various fractal levels, one could find a fractal level where acting on the close of a 5-minute would be acceptable/profitable. If that is the case, I'd like to find out if that acceptable fractal level is the "traverse level", i.e., where I would not be trading RTL or LTR movements within tapes, but the RTL or LTR tapes themselves of the next higher fractal. (Please note that I'm not saying that I would enter and exit only on tape breakouts.) Sorry if this is confusing. It's difficult to explain. Thanks for any advice.

This is a follow up to a question I asked Spyder privately about picking off gaussian transitions. I've written up a "literal" bar by bar gaussian log for that trend that started at 15:30 on 3/9 and ended at 11:05 on 3/10

 

(all times end of bar eastern)

 

I've identified a few problem areas - and I'm looking for clarity.

 

At 16:05 we've seen B2B 2R 2B. OK - no prob!

 

16:10 - 16:15 looks like falling black - rising red - which doesn't fit into our "mold" :) so I'm not sure what to do with it.

 

Then we get a rising black followed by a bunch of falling black. Again - not sure how to fit this into our mold. Falling black *always* happens after rising red - is it possible that 16:15 to 10:00 is a down volume sequence? Price is definitely rising over that period so it's hard to "accept" that. There is also no completing 2R.

 

10:05 - 10:40 looks like 2B 2R 2B - there isn't an initial B to make B2B.

 

10:45 - 11:05 completely confuses me :)

 

15:30 - IBGS - red to black volume shift

15:35 - falling black

15:40 - rising black

15:45 - rising black

15:50 - falling red

15:55 - rising black

16:00 - ???

16:05 - rising black

 

16:10 - falling black

16:15 - rising red

9:35 - rising black

9:40 - falling black

9:45 - falling black

9:50 - falling black

9:55 - falling red

10:00 - IBGS

 

10:05 - rising black

10:10 - rising black

10:15 - rising black

10:20 - falling red

10:25 - falling red

10:30 - falling black

10:35 - rising black

10:40 - ???

 

10:45 - falling red

10:50 - rising red

10:55 - falling black

11:00 - falling red

11:05 - rising black

Today's chart attached.

 

If you have an automated program drawing your tapes on the chart you attached, you might want to re-think the logic used.

 

I focused on marking the volume of all lats as non-dominant.

 

How did that work out for you?

 

What's the general consensus about acting on signals only at the close of a 5-minute bar?

 

I have always provided advice which espoused the wisdom of learning to crawl, walk and run, prior to, learning to fly. However, should one choose to forgo such a conservative approach, one can act on signals from finer level tools before the actual close of an ES Five Minute Bar.

 

It seems like, due to the nature of the market and the ability to trade on various fractal levels, one could find a fractal level where acting on the close of a 5-minute would be acceptable/profitable. If that is the case, I'd like to find out if that acceptable fractal level is the "traverse level"

 

If a trader uses exclusively Coarse Level Tools (i.e. only an ES Five Minute Chart), then trading at the 'Traverse Level' provides the answer you seek.

Look at the time of day. That's not unusual.

 

Then we get a rising black followed by a bunch of falling black. Again - not sure how to fit this into our mold. Falling black *always* happens after rising red - is it possible that 16:15 to 10:00 is a down volume sequence? No Price is definitely rising over that period so it's hard to "accept" that. There is also no completing 2R. The rising gaussian is drawn to the top of price movement regardless of the volume slowing down, giving a heads up for the short term change.

 

10:05 - 10:40 looks like 2B 2R 2B - there isn't an initial B to make B2B.

There are a lot of B2B2R2B levels "nested" in this up move. 10:00 is a trough of "a" B2B, the third or fourth one.

 

10:45 - 11:05 completely confuses me :)

 

I had trouble here as well, still don't have it worked out.

 

 

Gaussian annotation should go to where the peak or trough of price is. Sometimes volume peaks before or after this, but that's the way to annotate.

16:00 - ???

16:05 - rising black

16:10 - falling black

16:15 - rising red

 

I thought this group of bars was falling red, figuring that the lateral indicated non-dominant movement. I believe I learned this in the Futures Journal. But, based on Spyder's response to my post and Ezzy's response to yours, it seems that I either misunderstood or misapplied what I learned. From my interpretation of Ezzy's response, this appears to be rising black, continuing on until 9:50. Is that correct?[/color]

 

10:00 - IBGS

 

It seems like this bar could have been a retrace, with price continuing lower. I thought increasing volume was a characteristic of IBGS. No? Or maybe you saw it intrabar?

Thanks for the reply!

 

If you have an automated program drawing your tapes on the chart you attached, you might want to re-think the logic used.

 

I consider it an "assistant", as Barney Fife as it may be at this moment.

 

I'm experimenting with 1) taping through lats, where I almost always lose the Gaussian pattern, and 2) pausing taping while in lats and resuming after the lats terminate.

 

On this chart, I didn't tape through lats. Otherwise, I thought the tapes were OK. I'm accelerating on increasing volume and fanning on decreasing volume. If I'm not getting this right, I have a feeling I'm in trouble.

 

How did that work out for you?

 

I'm not exactly sure. :rofl:

 

My assessment of marking all lats as non-dominant movement:

1) It seems to work when there are no overlapping lats

2) I need to make sure my Guassians reflect the price action when the lat exits

3) I'm considering price action and Guassians while in a lat to be subfractal

 

If a trader uses exclusively Coarse Level Tools (i.e. only an ES Five Minute Chart), then trading at the 'Traverse Level' provides the answer you seek.

 

Great. I'm quite content to work with Coarse Level Tools and take this one logical step at a time.

It's very possible I incorrectly annotated this area and 15:45 to 16:05 is a dec red sequence ending at 16:05. You have to go fine to see this, but there could be an R2R2B2R sequence there. It will really mess with your 5min gaussians if you try to draw that in :D. I didn't annotate a lateral as we didn't have the volume drop off that usually accompanies one. But again that could be an error, end of day volume being questionable. Somewhere between 16:05 and 9:35 is another B2B.

 

However you slice it 9:35 to 9:50 is inc black. Even with volume slowing the cycle is continuing higher.

 

I don't have 10:00 as an IBGS. But they can happen on decreasing volume.

    • Date : 29th November 2021. Market Update – November 29 – Omicron dominates sentiment. USD (USDIndex 96.30) recovers from Fridays slump (95.98), Stocks lost over –2.2% in thin half-day trading, Oil FUTS lost –13%, Gold slumped and Yields tanked (10-yr 1.482%) on a safe haven (JPY & CHF bid) risk off day.

Stock markets remained under pressure during the Asian part of the session, but DAX and FTSE 100 futures are up 1.2% and 1.3% respectively and a 1.2% rise in the NASDAQ is leading US futures higher. A part reversal of Friday’s flows then as virus developments remain in focus. Travel restrictions are making a come back and the services sector in particular is facing fresh pain, but as Lagarde suggested over the weekend, the impact of Omicron is unlikely to throw economies back to the situation at the start of the pandemic, meaning the overall situation has not really changed. We continue to see the ECB on course to end PEPP purchases on time in March next year, although developments will add to the arguments of those who want to keep the flexibility on the distribution of asset purchases at least for future emergencies.

    • USDJPY PRICE OUTFLOW IS DRAWN BY SELLERS BACK TO 114.840   USDJPY Price Analysis – November 25 USDJPY price outflow is being held back as a consequence of bears causing opposition to the market influence. The price structure of the market strives to maintain an uptrend configuration under a bullish influence. However, the sellers are causing some resistance in the market, which is causing a hold in the market configuration. Because of this conflict in the market, the outflow of the bulls in the market will be held back to the 114.840 critical level. USDJPY Critical Levels Resistance Levels: 114.840, 112.790 Support Levels: 110.800, 109.100 USDJPY Long Term Trend: Bullish The bullish outflow price structure initially began with the expansive breadth of consolidation. The market was birthed after a strong price expansion before the bullish uprise. The price undulated between the breadth of the 110.800 and 109.100 significant price levels. As a result of this accumulation, the price was then pushed out to higher levels. With the continuation of the market expansion, buyers outflow upward, with the bulls taking hold of the market. Furthermore, price continues to experience more outflows as several structural levels were broken. When USDJPY eventually gets to the 112.790 level, the price resumes its accumulation phase. The market encountered a short phase of expansion before resuming bullish persistence. The price finally breaks through the 114.840 significant level and we expect a withdrawal back to this price level before bullish engagement. The Tensile Strength indicator shows the resilience of the market influence as the market is set to resume its bullish leverage after sellers retreat. USDJPY Short Term Trend: Bearish The 4-hour chart of USDJPY shows the price configuration riding upward following a strong force that broke through the 114.840 critical level. The price is now set in a retreat motion as the price is seen to be pulling away to the 114.840 price level. The Moving Average Convergence and Divergence indicator shows the market’s prevalent direction as the price is set on a pullback course to the 114.840 critical level before bullish outflow.   Source: https://learn2.trade
    • EURJPY DEPRECIATES TO LOWS NEAR 128.00 FOLLOWING COVID RESURGENCE   EURJPY Price Analysis – November 26 EURJPY pair fell for the third session in a row on Friday, depreciating to the area of recent lows in the 128.00 range. As the new strain of COVID weighs heavily on investors’ sentiment, strong buying interest in the Japanese yen puts EURJPY under added pressure in the sub-129.00 levels. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 130.50, 130.00, 129.61 Support Levels: 127.00, 126.50, 126.00 EURJPY Long term Trend: Ranging On Friday, the EURJPY opened higher at 129.31 and moved lower to 127.79 intraday lows losing almost 1%. The pair plunged, as bears emerged and traders focused on levels below 128.00. To investigate the bearish scenario, a decisive fall below 128.00 must be established. The pair may continue to fall into the next session, with bearish traders targeting the 127.00 area as a possible objective. As long as the 128.00 support level holds and the price is sustained above, more gains may be expected. A strong breakout of 128.50, on the other hand, would confirm that the rebound from 127.79 low has come to stay, bringing this low back into focus as a new bottom. EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish The EURJPY is still trading bearishly from its October high of 133.47 on the 4-hour charts, and the intraday bias is still to the downside. If the resistance at 128.50 holds, a further drop is likely. A decisive rebound past 128.50, on the other hand, will consolidate on the entire rebound from 127.79 low level. The mid-term support turned resistance level of 130.00 will be the next level of contention. A break of revised support around the 128.00, on the other hand, might reverse the rebound and broaden the down leg from 130.00 with a new phase of the drop towards the mid 127.00 in the coming session.   Source: https://learn2.trade
