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?

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...

    • MASTER TRADER JOE ROSS PASSES ON Dear Traders, We are sad to inform you of the passing of Master Trader Joe Ross on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 87. He went peacefully doing what he loved, by taking care of Loretta, his wife of 62 years of marriage and teaching his students from every continent how to trade. Joe has always been a free spirit and loved the trading world being his own boss. He quickly learned that teaching others was his true passion. The joy of educating those about a system in which he had true confidence and to see others come into their own. That was his greatest pleasure. He was proud to be a devoted Christian and combined spirituality with trading. Our condolences to our traders and students for the loss of a mentor and close friend, some would even go as far as saying a “father-figure” and he wore that title proudly. Master Trader Joe Ross’ passing came upon us unexpectedly and suddenly. Again, we would like to send our condolences to those who lost a mentor and a friend. Joe, you will forever be in our hearts. Who is Joe Ross? Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of “The Law of Charts™” and the “Traders Trick Entry™.” Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 80’s caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach. Joe Ross has written twelve major books and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. His file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent is huge: As one student, a successful trader, wrote: “Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading.” Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. He is listed in “Who’s Who in America.” After 5 decades of trading and investing, Joe Ross still tutors, teaches, writes, and trades regularly. Joe is an active and integral part of Trading Educators. He is the founder and contributor of the company’s newsletter Chart Scan™. “Master Traders Joe Ross was one of the most eclectic traders in the world. And he remains one of the few best mentors I have, alongside, Dr. Van. K. Tharp (may he live long), and one or two others. His teachings and insights into the markets have contributed to making me who I am today. He also talks about the spiritual side of trading, concluding that trading is no sin.” – Azeez M. “The trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader. He explained to me that his material will never go out of date, only the technology. Recently, we updated several of his hardback books into eBooks and he was right. From making trades over the phone to the “pit” then to opening an online account, my how things have changed. But he is correct about his methods, they will continue to apply to the markets regardless of how technolgy advances.” – Martha Ross-Edmunds (Joe’s daughter) Joe Ross’ Trading Philosophy: “Teach our students the truth in trading — teach them how to trade,” and “Give them a way to earn while they learn — realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader.”   IN MEMORIAM: Joe Ross (RIP)   Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • BITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTIONBITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: LONG-TERM HOLDERS REMAIN UNSHAKEN BY PRICE ACTION Azeez Mustapha 14 October 2021 | Updated: 14 October 2021 New reports from Glassnode show that despite the recent price surge in Bitcoin (BTC), long-term holders have shown no intention to liquidate and realize profits yet. The blockchain analytics provider also revealed that the percentage of BTC supply held for at least three months reached 85%, a new all-time high. Citing data from Glassnode, famous Chinese crypto analyst Colin Wu illustrated the recent behavior of Bitcoin holders and their attitude towards the benchmark cryptocurrency. The analyst detailed that the percentage of long-term holders that have not moved their coins in over ten years stands at 12.3%. These tokens are deemed dormant for this reason. The analyst further noted that the percentage of long-term holders that have not transferred their coins between two to three years and three to five years stands at 10% and 12.26%, respectively. Finally, the highest percentage of long-term holders were those who have refused to move their coins between the last six months to twelve months, standing at 19.5%. That said, 85.14% of BTCs have not exchanged hands for at least three months, a new record high. In July, Bitcoin struggled to keep its head above the $30,000 mark. Today, it has almost doubled this number, but investors remain steadfast in holding their coins. Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — October 14 As predicted in our previous analysis, BTC witnessed a sharp correction to the $55,000 – $54,000 pivot axis from the $57,500 level over the last 48 hours. This correction found immediate support from the $54,000 level, which triggered a rebound to a new five-month high at $58,500 earlier today. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart While the price currently rests around $57,500, we expect a bull run to the $59,000 resistance over the coming hours and days. Meanwhile, our resistance levels are at $58,000, $59,000, and $60,000, and our key support levels are at $56,700, $56,000, and $55,000.

    • Date : 15th October 2021. Market Update – October 15 – Stronger equities dampened the safe-havens! Q3 earnings season has gotten off to a strong start, with big banks largely shooting the lights out on revenues and earnings. Incoming data was constructive as well, with jobless claims coming in at pandemic lows, while the rate of PPI growth slowed. All 11 S&P sectors are higher. Bulls are in control, both in the bond market and on Wall Street. – Overlooked the hawkish Fed implications from the record strength in PPI and the lowest claims readings since before the pandemic. Yields declined and Treasuries are in the green on short covering and dip buying, recovering from the recent aggressive selloff. US Treasury yield has lifted 1.8 bp to 1.53%. China: will loosen restrictions on home loans and boost lending & bank added enough medium term funds to keep liquidity in the system steady. Equities up. JPN225 managed a 1.6% gain and US futures are also higher, led by a 0.4% rise in the USA100. Oil lifted above $81.99. – Prices quickly backed up after a larger than expected stock build in the US. Improved market sentiment, which has lifted global stocks, commodity prices and bond yields, is also weighing on the safe-haven Dollar. FX markets – USD dropped, Yen declined. EURUSD retests 1.1600 mark, Cable at 1.3689, USDJPY touched 114.16. European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is slightly higher, US Treasury futures slightly in the red, as stock futures move higher in both Europe and North America after a good session for equities across Asia overnight. Market sentiment improved and GER30 and UK100 futures are currently up 0.4% and 0.3% respectively, while a 0.4% rise in the USA100 is leading US futures. EGB yields had dropped back markedly yesterday, but in the UK money markets are still bracing for an earlier than expected lift off on rates, which ironically is actually helping long rates to come down. Today – Today’s data calendar is unlikely to change the overall picture, with only eurozone trade data for August and some final HICP readings on the agenda. Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.60%) Breached 80.55. Up for 7 days in a row. Currently faster MAs keep pointing up, MACD signal line is at 0 & histogram trending higher. RSI at 82 & Stochastic at 94 but both sloping down, all indicating further upwards move in the medium term but possible pullback in the short term. H1 ATR 0.123, Daily ATR 0.810.
