rs5 and ptunic,

 

I am working on separating fractal levels. I think I have a tendency to promote Gaussian lines when they should only be visible at lower fractal levels. I have a question regarding a particular annotation that you both made. If you have a moment and don't mind me asking, please see the attached.

 

I am not sure I understand the question. Do you mean that the gaussian should have been shifted to match the correct high points of the container? See attached. Yes, you are correct to match the containers and the gaussians. The unshifted and shifted scenario are on still on the same fractal.

Spyder, rs5, ptunic and all,

 

Another, more important, fractal level question...

 

I have a carry-over up-container that was originally built many days ago by the same fractal level that revealed four containers on 4/15.

Attached are several charts, a 3 day 5min, to check your carry over and data.

 

A 15 minute for a different perspective.

 

And a 1 day 5 min chart to compare your scale. Just my opinion but with a scale that tight it must be hard to follow the bar ticks up and down. Originally a 10 point scale was recommended. For my software 12 - 15 point scale works nice.

 

FWIW I didn't have the heavy weight, light blue container that's on your chart. Could be an error on my part, just saying.

 

A suggestion, it's nice if there is a time scale showing on the posted charts to help locate where certain points are, as well as the correct date.

Attached are several charts, a 3 day 5min, to check your carry over and data.

 

looks like small arrows, pointing 45degrees up and to the right,

mark when volume is more than the prior bar volume.

 

can anyone explain what the 'P' in the chart, volume pane, represent? at first i though it was the peak gaussian, but it looks like other similar looking volume patterns do not have this 'P' mark. is this mark done by sw automation or by hand?

thanks

The Blue Capital 'P' represents 'Peak Volume' as defined by an acceleration of a Gaussian Slope. And, yes, it is automated.

thanks, after a second look, acceleration of gaussian slope,

does it mark when the colored volume pace lines are crossed

into another zone level for the left hand side of the gaussian OR if

if its the right hand side, there is a color change with acelerated peak.

if this isnt the logic, could you post the pseudocode for the mark P?

thanks

 

i do find the small arrow marks on the volume very helpful to annotate, so

perhaps the other mark can also be useful.

if your b2b is correct then your red rtl cannot possibly be correct

 

Thank you for your input. Yes, different fractals...............

If you consider the gap, you will see that your 09:20 bar must be a p1.

Something like the attached...perhaps....

In real-time, I thought I saw one BO at 13:55 and another at 15:45. Did anybody know that these moves were not BO's as they were occurring?

 

Comments appreciated. (Edit: I've changed my mind about the rules I used to create the black up-channel. I think I should have fanned the pre-existing down-channel.)

Generally, I feel good about this chart... getting better at this each day (I think).

 

I don't like how quickly P's 2 and 3 of one container and P1 of the next formed between 10:25 and 10:40. Other than that... ok.

 

rs5, my chart is very similar to yours.

See cnms2's comments on rs5's chart.

Would you please explain how to recognize 13:20-14:00 as the non-dom 2b of r2r2b2r beginning at 12:40 and not a dominant 2b of b2b2r2b beginning at 11:40? It seems that many of us annotated 12:40 as p2 of a long sequence and 13:20 as its p3.

 

Thank you

Thank you

 

Dkm, if I may chime in here... Cnms2 highlighted the areas in question. If you think about the assertion, that the method works on all time frames, you could mentally (or actually)go to a higher (slower) resolution level and compare the highlighted areas. You'll find out that the non dom is supported by decreasing vol.

Furthermore you can compare the transition of the black volume starting after 11:30 - 11:40 area where the red volume stated its dominance. Even with increasing black volume in 12:30 - 12:40 area the market stays in a down trend. What I mean is, even though the market shows increasing black in 12:30 - 12:40 area in comparison to the 11:50 - 12:00 area, it still doesn't top the pace of increasing red in 11:20 - 11:40 area. Finally the 13:20 - 14:00 confirms that the black volume isn't dominant here. The red volume in 14:10 - 14:40 area since comparable to the 11:30 - 11:40 area finally reveals itself as a final leg of a channel, point 2 of which was established by red volume in 11:30 - 11:40 area.

 

On a side note why should it be important? You spotted your ftt so why not to go from here keeping in mind the possibility of you having jumped the fractals? I would annotate the chart differently (see attachment) and that still would have worked out for me.

 

Take it with a grain of salt as usual, as I'm just suggesting some things I'm working on. So caveat emptor.

Hi gucci,

 

Thank you for sharing your valuable volume comparison skills.

 

I have two questions for you---

 

1. You said: you could mentally (or actually) go to a higher (slower) resolution level and compare the highlighted areas---For the 5 minutes ES chart, what's the higher (lower) resolution level you suggest to use according to your observation? Do you mean to switch to10 min,15min, 30min or 60min in this specific

example?

 

2. You said: Furthermore you can compare the transition of the black volume starting after 11:30 - 11:40 area ---The chart under discussion is rs5's which is CST. Does your 11:30 - 11:40 area correspond to Bar 24 to Bar 26? TIA

The order of events for any fractal exists and is well known to every individual following any discussion of The Price / Volume Relationship. The pattern repeats throughout a trading day - without error or anomaly. If you'll say out loud the order of events (piece by piece) as Price moves from Point One to Point Two then from Point Two to Point Three, and finally, from Point Three to FTT (with as much precision as possible), you'll hear yourself speak that which your brain already knows.

 

Now, view volume in the area you have outlined.

 

Does the order of events match that which you have spoken aloud?

    • Date : 1st April 2020. All eyes on Commodity Currencies.Asian stock markets are lower, while European and US equity index futures are showing losses of around 3%. Data out of Asia today were nothing short of dismal, showing manufacturing contracting across most of the region, highlighting the economic toll that virus-containing measures are having.The main concern remains that the massive global stimulus measures simply won’t be fully effective while many economies remain in a state of lockdown of as-yet unknown duration.Commodity currencies have come under pressure as the winds of risk aversion picked up again.The Canadian dollar was the main loser so far today , while it has remained under pressure with oil prices sinking back toward major-trend lows as crude storage facilities burst at the seems from excessive supplies.USDCAD has gained up nearly 2% in making a 1.4230 high, though the pair so far has remained below yesterday’s peak at 1.4350. This is due to the fact that crude prices are down by over 65% year-to-date. This level of price decline in Canada’s principal export, while it sustains, marks a significant deterioration in the Canadian economy’s terms of trade. Given the glut of crude flooding the market, and given that supply is increasing as demand will remain weak for a historically protracted amount of time, Canadian Dollar is anticipated to remain apt to underperformance. The likes of the Norwegian krona, which like the Canadian dollar is an oil-price correlator, and many developing world currencies have also come under pressure.From the technical perspective, USDCAD overall outlook remains positive with asset holding above all three daily SMAs since January, and momentum indicators positively configured. RSI at 59 recovery from a pullback last week, Stochastic rebound from oversold territory and MACD presents some decline of the bullish momentum but holds well above 0. That said, USDCAD revisiting its recent 17-year high at 1.4669 seems likely before long.Intraday meanwhile, the rebound of USDCAD looks to run out of steam, however only a move below 1.4050 could suggest a reverse of the outlook.AUDUSD tipped over 1% lower in making a 5-day low at 0.6064 amid weaker Gold prices (end-of-quarter flows). The Aussie still remains comfortably above the 17-year low that was seen on March 19th at 0.5507. The Kiwi dollar has also taken a tumble.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 31st March 2020. Dead cat Bounce!Dead cat Bounce! A new term? Not really but definitely something that we haven’t seen for more than a generation.In general, investors throughout the years invented this term as a follow up to a market free fall. By definition, the “Dead cat Bounce” is simply a market phenomenon that translates into temporary small and short-lived rebounds of an asset’s price within a prolonged period of downside. This term is based on the idiom that “even a dead cat will bounce if it falls far enough and fast enough“. Hence in the financial market it is said that even if an asset falls with a considerable speed, it would rebound as even a dead cat would bounce. However, every time there is a rebound, the overall initial trend is then anticipated to resume, bringing the bearish influence back into play.In addition, the phenomenon can occur in any market, yet is particularly prevalent in equity markets. It is often the case that it is considered a continuation pattern.Why are we raising this topic now? This March, was the first time after Black Monday 1987 that we have seen the worst intraday selloffs in stock markets. Since February 20th, the stock market entered an aggressive bear market with a few days of an absolute rally. An example was the 13th of March in which the stock market roared back in the biggest one-day rally since 2008 after its worst single-day crash in 33 years just a day before. This is the classic dead cat bounce.If you closely observe stock market behaviour in March you will notice that there is a dramatic decline, with a number of days when the market reversed some of its losses, but failed to take the bait, and eventually fell back down again. This is a situation of portfolio managers wanting to sell some of their positions and when they see some strength in the market, decided to unload. This is what we call a “dead cat bounce” after it falls from high enough. Remember however that not every correction/reversal can be interpreted as a dead cat bounce.Theoretically this term is defined as the term in which,   A stock in a severe steep decline has a sharp bounce off the lows. A small upward price movement in a bear market after which the market continues to fall. Unfortunately, I need to highlight that there is not an easy way to determine in advance whether an upwards movement is a dead cat bounce which will eventually reverse quickly or whether it is a trend reversal. There is nothing easy in identifying the bottom of the market. However to a large extent a dead cat bounce is a retracement, in comparison to a reversal, i.e. it is temporary.Dead cat bounce as a technical analysis tool and more precisely as a continuation pattern could be tradable from short-term or medium term traders. Having explained this phenomenon, a follow-up article will elaborate on how market participants can trade a dead cat bounce.Always trade with strict risk management.
