My 2 cents worth..

Thurs lateral - 3rd increasing red bar vol created by up move to form a doji at the close. The volume thus is not totally increasing red but if we split, it should be red followed by a black.

 

On 9/3, the increasing red vol is created in the lateral is by price going down which signals a potential down move but would probably have to wait for BO of lateral to confirm, correct ?

Good. Now, set aside Volume (for just a moment) and determine if all of the examples under discussion form in the exact same (as our reworded definition) way. Those that do not form in such a fashion fall into a different pile. Next, look at context (VE's, declining pace or accelerating pace, etc.), and finally, check the order of events. Can you 'see' a completed Volume Cycle before the formation of the Lateral?

 

Now, bring Volume back into the analysis. Price moving in the dominant direction (after a completed Volume Sequence) on decreasing Volume tells you a very specific thing.

What follows is my read of some of the subtle differences.On 9/2 the market was moving in a dominant direction but had not completed its volume sequence(bar 1 of sym lateral is pt 2) when the lateral boundary(pt 3) was created on the non-dominant side of the sym lateral.Completion of the volume sequence occurred soon after the open of 9/3. The market on 9/3 was also moving in a dominant direction but this time had a completed volume sequence when the lateral boundary was created on the dominant side of the sym lateral.HTH

Hey everyone,

 

I'm still plunking along. Right now I'm trying to figure out what to do with laterals and gaussians. A few questions in my head are: 1) Can I have a full gaussian r2r2b2r (or b2b2r2b) in a lateral? 2) Can I have part of a gaussian sequence in a lateral say r2b?, and 3) Is a lateral simply one leg (just r, or just b) in a larger gaussian sequence?

 

Any examples for me to pick apart would be greatly appreciated, or a link to somewhere where this has already been discussed (in the 200+ pages). Hope the redundancy is not too annoying.

Re-reading a few times can clarify areas even though you will swear they were not there the first read through.

Could someone post a price and volume 5m ES chart for Friday and or Thursday? Doesn't need to be annotated, blank would work fine. Thanks

Friday 24 Sept 2010

 

Had an error in annotating thursday's sequence. Turned out that the down channel had completed on Thursday, and a new up channel started on Friday.

 

Have a good weekend everyone.

My view of the day...

 

Have a nice weekend.

 

ehorn - really appreciate you putting your charts up.

 

Question - you have a tape level (finest level) B2B opening the day.. ending around 10:45. From the open to 10:45 there are 4 black peaks. Could you detail out the analysis you did as each black peak appeared in real time?

 

e.g.

 

peak 1 - not an FTT ... nested volume sequence not complete.

 

TIA

YVW, I am happy to share my thoughts.

 

Nice observation and it is true... All peaks are not created equal... :)

 

Peaks and troughs are always informing the trader... But some peaks cause one to take notice more carefully than others. In particular, where those peaks occur (both throughout the day and with regards to where one finds themselves within the sequences). These particular peaks are showing us a gradual pace slowing as lunchtime approaches (typical of the standard catenary distribution).

 

So say a 5 minute fractal trader is examining peaks, and lets say a 5M traverse level trader is performing the routine - He/she knows what is needed first before sequences can possibly complete. We need a PT2 and a PT3 and then a return to dominance before one should look for change? yes?

 

What do we know about PT2's...? Where do they need to form?

 

Some days we have nice pace and/or we find the market poised in a location (with regards to TL's) where we can zip right through the nest to get where we are going Pt1, Pt2, PT3 and FTT in little time.

 

Other days we see how the nest elongates (like an accordian being stretched) as we make our way from PT1 across to the previous TL's seeking our new traverse level PT2.

 

IMHO, Friday is a nice example of how sub-fractals nest themselves on the way to a PT2 (on 5M traverse level).

 

IOW, While I have shown multiple fractals annotated for Friday, I think of them as sub's as we make our way to a PT2 of the traverse. So from a 5M perspective, it was one long tape moving towards 5M fractal level traverse Pt2.

 

HTH,

Absolutely yes.

 

OK so around 10 AM we *begin* looking for PT3 on our traverse. We immediately have a pullback around 10:15 - why not label this PT3? We also have a red inside bar around 10:30 - why isn't this PT3?

 

In real time I thought the 10:15 pullback was PT3 so I ended up reversing early - I'd really like to understand why I should have avoided "taking that exit" on the road to sequences completed :)

I can only share my views for your consideration.

 

Consider the attached picture. It contains 3 levels:

 

Tapes (Black/Red)

Traverses (Medium Green/Orange)

Channel (Thick Green)

 

If you wish, label the PT1,2,3 and FTT and consider how this applies to last weeks market formations.

 

Then ask yourself, do we have a PT2 of the latest up traverse yet... Did Friday give us a PT2 on a 5M fractal?

 

HTH

ehorn,then the thin lines on your price and volume panes are sub tape level annotations? such a bbt's or sub bbt's?

I've written a few notes (on Ehorn's chart) for the period you enquired about.

    • Bitcoin (BTC) Drops To $6,828 After A Sudden Price Spike To $7,283 Key Resistance Zones: $10,000, $11,000, $12,000 Key Support Zones: $7, 000, $6, 000, $5,000 BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Bearish On March 2, there was a price spike as Bitcoin reached a high of $7,283.50. The bulls could not sustain the upward move as Bitcoin fell to $6,828. The bears are defending intensively the $7,000 overhead resistance. BTC is now fluctuating above $6,800. The bears will further sink BTC if the bulls fail to move up. Bitcoin may fall to the low of the breakout level of $6,400. However, if this level also cracks, the market will further fall to the next support. BTC/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: Bitcoin is above 60% range of the daily stochastic. This is given the recent price spike which tested the resistance line of the descending channel. However, if price breaks and closes above the resistance line, there will be a change in the trend. BTC will resume an uptrend. BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bullish Yesterday, BTC was making an upward move to retest the $7,000 resistance. The price has earlier moved up to $6,800 before the commencement of price spike. The market moved above the resistance level but could not sustain above $7,000 because of the selling pressure. BTC/USD 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading The Relative Strength Index has risen to level 66. It indicates that BTC is in the uptrend zone and above the centerline 50. The 21-day and 50-day SMAs are sloping upward indicating the upward move. General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC) Yesterday, Bitcoin rose to $7,283 in a price spike. The bulls could not sustain the upward move because of the presence of sellers at the price level. BTC dropped to a low of $6,800. The price has since been fluctuating above that level. Instrument: BTC/USD Order: Sell Entry price: $6,784.00 Stop: $6,850.00 Target: $6,584.00   Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • EURJPY Extends Decline Lower Past The Level At 117.08 EURJPY Price Analysis – April 3 The FX cross extends its lower fall into the European session early underneath the price level at 117.08 as the pair resumed lower. EURJPY acceleration downside remains intact, as sellers tend to force down prices. The pair’s potential target will be on the 116.00 marks. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 122.87, 121.15, 118.87 Support Levels: 116.12, 115.83, 114.39 EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish EURJPY is sliding towards the lows of 2020, as the pair trades below its key daily 5 and 13 MAs and signals an apparent bearish trajectory. The pattern remains bearish in the larger sense as the cross stays well within the falling channel formed from 122.87 (high) level. The downtrend will continue to 109.48 (low) level as long as the resistance level holds at 122.87. Continuous 122.87 level break may, however, conclude a double bottom at (115.83, 116.12) levels which may indicate medium to long-term bullish reversals. EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish The emphasis is now on EURJPY support levels of 115.83/116.12. There the definitive break may accelerate the larger downward trend. Next, a relatively close-term goal would be a 100 percent forecast of 122.87 to 116.12 at 114.39 levels from 121.15. Nonetheless, on the upside, the break of 118.87 minor level of resistance may assert that consolidation from 115.83 level is increasing with yet another upward step. Intraday bias for resistance level of 121.15 may be shifted further to the upside. Instrument: EURJPY Order: Sell Entry price: 117.08 Stop: 117.71 Target: 116.12   Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • Date : 3rd April 2020. Inured to the bad news.The markets are relatively inured to the bad news, as the weekly jobless claims have already given us the increasingly ugly news on the labor market. US equities are modestly weaker amid risk-off sentiment and an employment report that revealed a much larger than anticipated -701k plunge in March and a jump in the jobless rate to 8.7% from 7.0%.Meanwhile, the Dollar showed mixed reaction to the employment report. These numbers were worse than expected, though shouldn’t really be a surprise given the more timely surge in jobless claims figures seen the past two weeks. USDJPY initially fell to 108.25 before turning back up again at 108.60, while EURUSD fell to 1.0780 from 1.0800. USDCHF extended gains up to 0.9794, reversing nearly 76% of the decline seen since March 20.EURUSD concurrently carved out a 9-day low at 1.0774, making this the 5th consecutive day of lower lows while extending the correction from the 17-day high that was seen last Friday at 1.1148. The pair still remains above the low seen during the recent Dollar liquidity crunch, at 1.0637, before the Fed and other central banks stepped in to try and satiate the demand for cash dollars. Its overall outlook meanwhile, remains negative, with the asset extending well below all 3 daily SMAs and with its daily momentum indicators negatively configured. Hence the Dollar bid looks to hold.The March establishment and household employment surveys captured more of the early layoffs than the markets had assumed, with massive declines for payrolls and hours-worked, big drops for civilian employment, the labor force, and the participation rate, and the start of the upward march for the jobless rate. Wages were also firm, likely due to the concentration of job loss among lower-paid workers.The specifics: March nonfarm payrolls dropped -701k after February’s 275k increase (was 273k), which ended a 9.5 year run of employment gains. The employment in the goods-producing sector fell -54k from the 57k (was 61k) rise. Service sector jobs slumped -659k after rising 185k (was 167k) in February. Leisure/hospitality jobs plunged -459k from the prior 45k (was 51k) increase. Education/health care jobs were down -76k versus a 65k (was 54k) increase previously. Government jobs edged up 12k, with 18k added to the Federal payroll. The unemployment rate jumped to 4.4% (4.38%) from 3.5%. Average hourly earnings rose 0.4% versus the prior 0.3% gain.The weakness captured in the mid-month March jobs report may prompt downward revisions in the Q1 GDP estimate, on the assumption that the Quarter may capture more of the economic plunge than previously assumed.Beyond the timing of Q1 versus Q2 growth figures, however, the surprise in today‘s report is more the degree to which the surveys captured late-March events than the magnitude of declines, since the bulk of the jobs loss will still be captured in the surveys for April.Since the Fed is already in maximum easing mode, it is unlikely that reports like today‘s will alter the monetary policy path.Always trade with strict risk management.
