It might be interesting to discuss why at that point the right side of the market was still short, except if you traded ftt to ftt (FFs) and reversed short there again.

 

The market built a R2R (14:05 -14:20 [internal]) which needed to be satisfied.

In this case I don't understand what did you mean with your 1150 am edit "EDIT: 14:40 OB was a wash...". Where did you see the previous two reversal points: the "long", and the "short" before that "wash"? I noticed on your chart that r2r, but you seemed to expect it to be followed by a b2b.

3 actions today...

 

Enter Long (bar 2)

Reverse Short (posted the chart snippet)

Reverse Long --> Exit (wash trade on OB)

 

In RT, my decision and action (for my trading fractal) was incorrect in this area (14:10 --> ET) - the market confirmed this with the OB - so I washed the long. The edit was a notification of the error made in my routine. HTH

Thanks,

 

Crayola shows the offer (I focus on), what was taken (thick), and what was left (thin). I should have stuck around for that PT3. :)

 

The anti-whipsaw would have been the reversal - not a wash. So PFC (as I see it) has DOM lat, looking for FF completion and PT2 of DOM traverse. Have a nice weekend.

Can't argue with such performance :) I just thought that I can incite people to an interesting discussion I, and maybe others, could learn from.

Who doesn't enjoy a 40 point traverse! :)

 

Hi ehorn,

 

Great move ! WTG !

 

As I study your chart, I observed that from bar 8 (10:10 AM) to 18 ftt, your first tape was from bar 1 to 8, second tape move from bar 8 - 18 on the down move before the final tape up to the top. I had some issues with understanding the 2nd tape move down. On my chart, I had 2 additional tapes on the small move up bar 13 - 15 and then down tape 15 - 17.

 

What would be the right way to annotate this type of situations as I find that it does happen quite alot ?

It seems that your gaussians don't support your price annotations.

See attached.

 

Based on your annotation convention, you appear to see the attached chart in terms of three equal containers which create a larger (light green) container. In other words, each of the three equal containers (two blue up and one down red) form in the exact same fashion and exist on equal footing - relative to one another. However (as cnms2 pointed out), your Gaussians fail to match the convention used in your Price Pane. Moreover, even with adjusting your Gaussians correctly, it appears as though you have yet to determine why the three equal weight containers exist in the manner presented.

 

Remember, it is not enough to simply annotate lines onto a chart. One must strive to understand the 'why' behind the action.

 

Begin with asking yourself whether (or not) you have accurately applied the order of events onto this specific chart in a manner applicable to the number of fractals observed.

If I understand your comment correctly, for each of the containers to exist on equal footing, then it is part of the 1-2-3 of a larger container. Which would mean that the red move down would be the second move to find pt 3 as you have drawn. The gaussians would be supporting this. So for a full move down, then we need to have a R2R2B2R. So I redrew the gaussians to reflect that (thanks to ehorn's chart).

 

Earlier I drew a tape down FF2, followed by FF3. But it looks like FF3 cannot be on the same footing since it would mean a point 3 within the previous Long TF1. And therefore, it is only a part of the red move down. Hope I am getting it close to getting the "why" correct.

All markets exist fractally. Therefore, if one wishes to correctly (and thoroughly) annotate a chart in order to reflect this fractal nature, one must know why (according to your convention) the medium weight Red and Blue containers represent one fractal, the light green (thick) container represents a slower fractal, and the black and red (skinny) lines (inside the down medium red container) represents a third (but faster) fractal.

 

**Please note, I have not defined these three containers as 'tapes' or 'traverses' or 'channels' (or even goats).

 

Each of the containers annotated (irrespective of fractal) contains a Point One, Point Two and Point Three. Volume moves Price in a very specific way between these Points. Beginning with each of the Two Bar cases (posted earlier in this thread) expand on what you know as additional bars arrive on scene. At some Point, you'll fail to see that which the market has provided. A short period of time later, you'll ask yourself the question, "How should I have known (or seen) that which I must have missed?"

 

Once you have the ability to form the question, you'll find you already know the answer.

From the height of your volume bars on your chart I'm guessing you're not looking much at the volume information, and you're using that pane mostly to log your price derived annotation. Don't forget that this method is based on price and volume, with volume leading the price.

Thank you. The volume pane is one side of PV and Price the other. Using one without the other does not make sense. I doubt anyone can trade PV without using volume. I added the plus sign to allow volume to be viewed more easily. For me, during a trading day, the volume pane is larger relative to the price pane. I post the chart as I do to provide what I think is a more complete perspetive, overall. Another reason the volume levels are so low is that I am trying to keep perspective on previous high volume days. Today, volume was not very high compaired to previous days. Most of the time I cannot trade intraday so I trade overnight.

quote=ehorn;97125]My view of the day... PFC has DOM lat looking for PT2 of accelerated traverse

 

ehorn, thanks for posting. When I study your chart again, it appears that you hvaave 3 gaussians for 3 nested fractals. What is interesting is that not all the lowest fractals gaussians are drawn but only some. So the way I am reading it, the pattern must complete on a particular fractal or what Spyder referred to as equal footing. And if the subsequent gaussians are otherwise, then a sub fractal may be showing up maybe due to lower volumes. In that case, then we need to complete the subfractal PVT to arrive back at the particular fractal move e.g. 1:55pm to 2:40 pm pt 2 to pt 3 move.

 

Am I reading it right this time? If so, then the term fractal jumping is what it is, isn't it ? Which also goes to explain why I get to conflicting B2B followed immediately by R2R moves which is not logical.

I observe that every fractal develops in the same manner (pattern). Some fractals can be hidden or highlighted (depending on pace), but the sequences are always the same. Once all fractals for a given trend have completed, then the trend completes and a new trend begins. HTH

I noticed that PT multistation trading terminal shows an extra little bar chart for the volume, at the bottom of the chart beneath every candle, which I find convenient, especially for scalpers.

    • Bitcoin (BTC) Consolidates As Bears And Bulls Tussle Above $9,400 Support Key Resistance Zones: $10,000, $11,000, $12,000 Key Support Zones: $7, 000, $6, 000, $5,000 BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging Bitcoin has failed to break above $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls made two unsuccessful attempts at the resistance. In the recent one, the bears took the price to a low of $9,290 and then pulled back above $9,400. In the interim, the price is fluctuating above $9,400 and approaching the high of $9,800. As the bulls have failed to push above the overhead resistance, the pair may commence a range movement. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that if the bears break below the $9,400 support, selling pressure may resume. Meanwhile, BTC may continue the range-bound movement. BTC/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: After the downward move of Bitcoin, the Relative Strength Index has also fallen to level 52. This simply means the coin is above the centerline 50. In other words, BTC is in an uptrend and it is likely to rise. Price broke the support line of the ascending channel. The uptrend will be in proper perspective only when the bulls break into the ascending channel. BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bearish On the 4- hour chart, Bitcoin now trades between $9,400 and $10,200 after the first breakdown at the $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls tested the resistance at $10,200 twice , before the downward move. The large bearish candlesticks tested a low of $9,290. However, the small body candlesticks that follow are called indecisive candlesticks. BTC/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Presently, BTC is trading above a 25% range of the daily stochastic. That is the coin is in the bullish trend zone. The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are sloping horizontally indicating a sideways trend. General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC) From every indication, if the bulls fail to push above the overhead resistance, the price action in October and November will repeat itself. For the past three days, BTC is still fluctuating above $9,400. Instrument: BTC/USD Order: Sell Entry price: $9,700 Stop: $9,900 Target: $8,400 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.

    • The Sharp Recovery In EURJPY Lose Momentum, Falters Beneath The Level At 121.00 EURJPY Price Analysis – February  21 The single European currency rose 88 basis points or 0.73% against the Japanese yen in the previous session. After two consecutive sessions showing strong growth, EURJPY is now losing some momentum amid JPY bulls. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 122.37, 122.87, 121.00 Support Levels: 119.99, 117.08, 115.83 EURJPY Long term Trend: Ranging The EURJPY rebound from the level of 118.46 continues to advance from the previous session, but today it has stalled. Super-speed acceleration claims that a decline from 122.87 level could have ended in three waves to 118.46 level. However, the support level formed by the intersection of the moving average of 5 and 13 at 119.90 level can support the exchange rate during the trading session on Friday, while greater advance can continue from the level of 115.83. EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging From an analysis of the 4-hour time frame, the intraday bias is now on the rise for a resistance level of 121.15 at first. The breakthrough will be aimed at 122.87 high levels. On the other hand, a breakdown of the secondary support levels of 119.99 could change the bias towards lower testing to retest the low level of 118.46 instead. Instrument: EURJPY Order: Sell Entry price: 121.00 Stop: 119.66 Target: 121.47 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.

    • Quantower update! https://www.quantower.com/Here is what the latest version has to offer: 37 Predefined Options Strategies Volatility Smile chart for Options Series Cumulative Last Trade Size in DOM Trader Added OCO orders for Rithmic connection ________________________________37 Predefined Options StrategiesIn this release, we improved the Option Analytics panel by adding a list of 37 predefined option strategies that you can apply for analysis or trading with one click. For convenience, all strategies are divided into 4 categories: Up Trend Down Trend Volatility Based Arbitrage strategies For each strategy, you can see a general risk profile scheme, description, and structure, i.e. what options (Call or Put) it consists of. Once you have selected the desired strategy from the list, click on the “Add Strategy” button and it will appear in the bottom table “Test & Real Positions”. In this table, you can analyze several strategies at once, simply ticking off the necessary strikes.   It is important to note that all option strategies are built on the strikes closest to ATM (at-the-money). To extend the strategy profile, you need to manually add the necessary strikes via the Paper column in the options desk.Volatility Smile chartAnother improvement that we added to the Option Analytics panel is the Volatility Smile chart. It shows the implied volatility values for all strikes on the same line. This allows you to compare the value of options and understand is their overbought or oversold relative to each other. Cumulative Last Trade Size in DOM TraderChanged the display of the Last Trade Size, which was located on the price axis. In the new version, we placed Last Trade Size in a separate column and added a mechanism for accumulating trading volume, if the price did not change.For example, if the previous trade was on the Bid side, and then the latest trade is on the Ask side at the same price, then the Last Trade Size will add the value. But if the price will change on one tick up or down, then the Last Trade Size will be reset.   Added OCO orders for Rithmic connectionIn the last release, we have already added Bracket Orders, which allow you to reduce losses in case of an unfavorable trade. Today we present OCO orders (One Cancels Other), which is a widely known and popular order type among traders. Using the trading functionality of the Quantower platform, you can set two independent limit orders and combine them into an OCO group. When one of the orders is executed, the second will be automatically canceled.Additionally, for each limit order, you can set Bracket orders (SL and TP) and then merge them into a group. As ever, we’d love to hear what you think about Quantower, your feedback helps us improve whole the platform. Keep an eye out for future updates!
