Hi Ezzy,

 

Thanks a lot for posting the videos and far more important, in keeping them all this time.

 

Can you just briefly mention what's the difference between this set and the earlier set that you posted. Were both of the 2 sets made around the same time with the same group of people ?

 

Btw, I found that downloading each one at a time is more stable than trying to download a few all at once.

 

TQVM.

 

The first set posted were recorded over a weekend in Tucson, Jan '07 with Jack and Spyder, except for the "Putting the Pieces Together" which was from an '06 Meetup. The Meetups were an IBD type group that Jack ran for a short while. (Do something, Learn something, Share something, Change something - Meetup.com)

 

The above set is the rest of the '07 Meetups that were posted at the time, plus a couple older videos on channels. When I finish sorting through the '06 Meetups, I'll post the relevant ones, not all of them were Hershey meetings.

 

Regards,

 

EZ

Below is the series of Meetups recorded in 2006. They are mostly on stocks and using indicators.

 

There is also an audio of Spydertrader from the Jan 25, 2007 Tucson Meeetup

 

The last two are documents everyone should have already read, if not this is where you start. If you haven't read them before and don't understand what the "scoring" is, some of the information presented in the videos won't make any sense.

 

Note: The "Putting the Pieces Together" Camtasia posted for Oddi on the 26th (last one in the group) belongs with this 2006 series. It was done on 6-22-2006.

My middle fractal gaussians ...

 

I am wondering why your middle fractals do not match the original gaussians you have drawn ? Appreciate if you comment further.

 

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for posting.

That volume snippet (first post) was taken from MKTr's chart with no modification, and I wanted to show that just looking at volume the gaussians he's drawn don't quite match the volume picture. The second post shows for comparison his gaussians and mine. This is why they don't match. I should've been more explicit.

I'm trying to analyze the daily ES chart. Could someone help me out and explain which one of these possible choices is in effect - and WHY???

 

the LOW of today (7/20) is:

 

- a pt3 of a long (pt1 on 7/6)

 

- a pt2 of a short( pt1 on 7/15)

 

OR

 

- a pt1 of a new long (also FTT of a short)

- a pt1 of a new long (also FTT of a short)

 

On my charts, the market creates the low of 7-20-2010 on bar one (9:35 AM Eastern Time [and close of ES 5 minute Bar]). If your charts show the same, you might consider rephrasing your question. Also, if you choose to rephrase, consider adding context (tape point one, traverse point one, channel point one), else you might receive a yes answer to your questions, but interpret the yes answer in a way not entirely intended.

 

FYI: The why portion will be, "because the order of events of the specific fractal in question reached completion, and provided a signal for change."

 

HTH.

Thanks for the feedback. I was on the fence about that period (and many others on yesterday's chart!) but in particular those bars, changed my mind several times :)

 

I wasn't entirely convinced with the mode of those bars:

 

15:35 [close of] : decreasing red volume , mode: long

15:40 : increasing red volume -- but lower volatility (almost half the bar size). mode: long

15:45 : increasing red volume -- but bar is in flat bottom pennant : mode long

15:50 : increasing red volume -- but bar is outside bar, bar closes inside prev bar. mode: long

15:55 : increasing red volume -- but end of day effects starting, also closes inside prev bar, also almost spike bar -- mode: long

 

That said, totally agree, focusing at the volume it is clearly increasing red, and maybe after several bars of that it is enough to be more of a factor than whether bars are closing inside the previous bar etc. Sounds like my test for dominance is a bit too strict. thx :)

I tried to download some of the videos on pages 196 and 198, but I couldn't get to the

download page. Does anyone know if those files are still availabe on FileDropper?

Thanks.

It does look like they're going away. If you don't mind a slow download, I've created a torrent of the files. I've attached the .torrent file in a .zip. This will take some time because it's over 5.1 gigabytes and I throttle my uploads to 50 KB/sec. But it should work and if anyone else participates, it should work better. When you get it, you should seed it so others can get it too. Please, let me know if you have any problems. I've never actually tried this before. :)

Looks like they already took them down. If/when I get it resolved I'll let everyone know.

Hi all, I have a chart and some thoughts I was hoping to get some advice/opinions on if anyone is willing. :)

 

Lately I have been doing fairly decent (still a long journey ahead) at my MADA. At times, several days or even a week or two can go by with each gap-adjusted day flowing right into the next as expected. Of course it remains to be seen if this is actually improvement or just strings of luck where my mistakes are not obviously proven wrong by the market lol.

 

Then there are the times where a string of days is working perfectly followed by something that invalidates some or all of the previous days. Monday 8/2 ended the most recent string. :crap:

 

So, I thought to post a chart of Friday 7/30 with my thoughts at the time of what the market was building and what was to come.

 

I had thought the market was building a down channel starting on 7/28 bar 2. The first Traverse of this channel had several VE/Zone/Acc which I know are generally what lead to my MADA failing. But anyway, I ended the first Traverse on 7/30 bar 2/3. At this point I am building a non-dominant Traverse headed to Pt 2 of the down channel. This seemed to work out well through EOD 7/30, but of course 8/2 makes a gap-adjusted new high over my Channel Pt 1.

 

Possible places I went wrong:

 

1. There was no down Channel starting on 7/28.

 

2. There was a Channel there and I screwed the Traverses during all the VE's causing the Channel/Traverses to end sooner than I expected.

 

3. The market was doing something compeletly different and through luck of multiple errors I ended up with something that just "looked" right. Failure is always an option!

 

Please feel free to give advice on where I screwed up these last few days. I really hope the point of failure can be pinpointed (if my MADA was anywhere close) so that I can go about working out the "whys" with some surety I am in the ballpark.

 

Attached is a chart of Friday, as this was the last day everything seemed to fit perhaps the error lies here?

 

Ugh, re-reading this it seems to ramble.

 

To be specific with my questions: Do you think that a down Channel started 7/28? Do you think 7/30 was an up Traverse?

 

Thanks very much for any guidance you can give!

Have you looked at a de-gapped chart for the last ~10 days, or at least starting with 7/26?

Yes, and starting the down Channel on the peak of the 26th would fit nicely. I had the 26th as pt2 of an up Channel and I have looked at that up Channel several times and it seemed correct...but it never occurred to me that my mistake might be further back than that :doh:

 

I guess the reason I didn't want to look beyond the 28th for the mistake was that everything from 7/16 onwards just "worked". Bad case of tunnel-vision.

 

I will work my way backwards tonight, hopefully without the blinders on.

 

Thank you very much for the tip!

    • 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.
