A simple question about PT3's -

 

Does the formation of PT3 ALWAYS involve a break out of the container formed from PT1 to PT2?

 

EDIT: and one more:

 

If a trend is lateral (or nearly lateral) is it "valid" for PT3 to pull back past PT1 by a few ticks?

My thanks to you as well, EHorn .... I always enjoy studying your charts...

 

Please confirm for me that the first 3 blue containers are each 5-minute traverses, together building the green up "channel". This seems to be born out by the Gaussians. But if I follow the Gaussians for the next 3 blue containers, they seem to be 3 "tapes". Is this correct. TIA.

It was not annotated properly (gaussians levels with subs and tapes) to match all visible fractals... 9bbts up... so of course the markets gives us 9 bbts down non-dom.

9bbts - I presume this stands for 9 building block tapes

 

Hello Spyder, thanks for the thread. I have used EHorne's chart as a foundation, and tried to annotate in more detail the tapes and traverses (syncing with the Gaussians). Please tell me if I am on the right track and where I can look at improving. TIA.

This method is not about hard rules and constrains, but about getting in tune with the market, and looking at all observable signals in each particular context. Having said that, my answers to your questions are ... :)

1. yes; if you correctly annotate the pt1-pt2 container (including the acceleration situations)

2. no; but sometimes the volume seems to say otherwise because the volume leads the price

Understood. I see rules like training wheels - eventually you can just throw 'em away. For me eventually is not here yet :)

 

2. no; but sometimes the volume seems to say otherwise because the volume leads the price

 

Hmmmm... a higher price high or lower price low on lower volume is a very basic PV signal for change. (falling volume => price will change).

 

Are you saying that in a case when a trend terminates with a final relatively weak volume push -- this PV action might be mistaken for a lateral PT3?

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 :)

 

If you were looking for the point 3 around the times you mentioned, you were jumping the fractals. Prior to reaching its point 2 the market managed to create a traverse. Since this traverse is located inside the last one (which RTL market was trying to break) it is nested i.e. faster fractal. So the market indicated what the traverse on the trading fractal will consist of. HTH.

as long as you have the 'gau' supports your P3 then you should be OK.

Quite a lot of indicators you've got there. Do you use them all? Aren't volume and price enough?

Anyone using ninja-trader? I cannot seem to find a way to show my charts without gaps? Can you please help me? Having the most difficult time understand Gaussian line. :crap:I can see the tapes and traverses on volume pane without trouble.

There are many NT indicators for trading PV method in that thread. Hope this helps.

thanks Wind, I will look into it. What I am trying to do is plot the chart with out showing the gaps between sessions so I can draw the channels easier and hopefully learn to see the volume Gaussians as you are doing. What charting package are you using?

On a side note, if somebody is still interested in being able to avoid fractal jumping (this little handicap might get important some day) peruse the IT thread from page 1500 to 1700.Some of the info there might provide some or entire clarity on the subject. dHTcHam.

It is unfortunate that no clear explanation regarding how to identify fractal levels consistently has ever been given in this or the IT thread, despite numerous requests from the many individuals that have devoted many 1000's of hours to this methodology.

Question (and I am sure it has been answered 100 times elsewhere, but Spyder suggested I post my questions to give somebody a chance to clarify):

 

Can somebody point me to a specific post where the Volume pattern that identifies an FTT is clarified?

 

Am just getting into this stuff, it seems to me that an FTT can be either a one bar or 2 bar combination (some kind of spike/ reversal bar formation contained either within 1 bar or 2). There can only be that many combinations of price and volume that express an FTT... somebody?

 

Thanks,

Vienna

Is it just me, or is Trade Navigator not very good for annotating? I am in the design field, have used lots of drawing software, but have never seen one where you can not highlight a line that you select etc... it is really hard to grab a line, move it (you often move the chart instead) etc.... for example Multicharts is much better in this, but unfortunately does not have Spyder's setups or the filter capacity.

 

Did somebody ever point that out to TN? I did (to Glenn), but don't know if they will do anything about it...

    • there is not time line to success, some would take months, others years, at most its a constant continues process of struggle, I have been trading a hotforex account for 8 years now, and i dont think im close to what people call successful, but im happy with what little i make.  
    • forex trading is no joke, its  amoney hole for those who dont know what they are doing. its like a "now u see me now u dont" with money, it takes time to understand and study, it takes years to come up with a working strategy, and tons and tons of patience. some people are better off treating it as a hobbie or a past time really. though ive been in it for a decade now.
    • Ripple (XRP) Reaches $0.12 Oversold Region As Buyers Emerge Key Resistance Levels: $0.30, $0.40, $0.45 Key Support Levels: $0.25, $0.20, $0.15 XRP/USD Long-term Trend: Bearish Ripple is presently fluctuating between $0.12 and $0.17. The market appears to have reached bearish exhaustion as the coin reached the oversold region of the market. At a low of $0.12, XRP was oversold. Consequently, the bulls emerge to push XRP upward. The coin rises to a high of $0.15 and resumes consolidation. On the downside, as the price fell to a low of $0.12 and became oversold, a further downward move is doubtful. On the upside, if the bulls break the $0. 17 overhead resistances, XRP will resume an upward move. Meanwhile, the sideways trend may persist if the $0.17 resistance is unbroken. XRP/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: Ripple is trading above 40% range of the daily stochastic. It indicates that Ripple is in bullish momentum but the current upward move is weak. This is in view of the currently prevailing bear market. The moving averages are pointing southward. XRP/USD Medium-term Trend: Ranging On the 4-hour chart, Ripple is in a sideways trend as the market fluctuates between $0.12 and $0.17. Ripple was earlier oversold as the market reached bearish exhaustion. Selling pressure is unlikely as the bulls emerge at the oversold. XRP/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Ripple is now in a horizontal channel as the price fluctuates between $0.12 and $0.17. Meanwhile, Ripple is rising as it reaches level 59 of the Relative Strength index. Ripple is above the centerline 50 indicating that it is in the Uptrend zone. Nevertheless, the 21-day and 50-day SMAs are sloping horizontally indicating the sideways trend. General Outlook for Ripple (XRP) Ripple is at the bottom of the chart but it is trading at $0.15 as at the time of writing. The pair is likely to continue its consolidation for a few more days. Presently, the bulls are having the upper hand as the price fluctuates upwards. It is assumed that the selling pressure has been exhausted. Ripple (XRP) Trade Signal Instrument: XRP/USD Order: Buy Entry price: $0.162 Stop: $0.150 Target: $0.362   Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • EURJPY Extends The Sell-Off From The Weekly Highs Towards The Sub-118.87 Region EURJPY Price Analysis – March 27 EURJPY fell under market pressure and tumbled to sub-118.87 levels at the time of writing. Japan’s anti-risk yen attained significant ground in the US session, driving the cross to session lows near 118.87 level amid the wide-spread vulnerability of the US dollar and the fall in US stock futures. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 123.37, 122.87, 121.15 Support Levels: 117.08, 115.83, 114.84 EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish In the larger structure, the trend stays bearish as the cross returned still within the falling channel formed since 123.37 (high). As long as the resistance level is 122.87, the downward trend may proceed in the next session towards the support level of 114.84. Even so, a continuous break of 122.87 may achieve a double bottom level (115.83, 117.08) which may suggest a long-term bullish reversal. EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging Initially, the EURJPY trend barely changed. Consolidation from a level of 115.83 can be increased through further rises. On the contrary, a break of 121.15 level will approach a resistance level of 122.87. On the downside, a continuous break of 115.83 level may suggest a greater resumption of the downward trend. The price is testing the 119.99 resistance level even though the cross may have a retest of the 120.17 and 121.15 price levels. Support is seen at levels of 119.24, 118.87 and 118.37. Instrument: EURJPY Order: Sell Entry price: 120.17 Stop: 120.67 Target: 119.24 Source: https://learn2.trade
