Like I said, probably my fault, perhaps there are some basics that I am missing.You guys seem to be quite ahead on the curve. I would have to ask some pretty basic questions, and thought I save everyone some time if a document exists that clears that up...

a pic worths thousands words put up a pic with some lines on it, we can take it from there.

Alright.

 

Now, we are getting somewhere. You've narrowed things down to a binary choice.

 

Which Trough best represents the market fractals in terms of 'nesting'?

 

...

looking at a official doc I think this is the answer.

Ok you were forewarned.. wanted to save you guys the trouble :) Like I said, it seems I am missing some basics....this is an older post from spyder.

look left does 2B > R2R volume?

My try:

 

If your Gaussians show you R2R, where are you with respect to the order of events?

- You are at the top of an upchannel (or traverse). You have created a point 1 for a new downchannel, and that point one is the FTT of the old upchannel (or it bounced off the LTL of the old upchannel).

 

If your Gaussians show you R2R 2B, where are you with respect to the order of events?

- You have now created a point 2

 

If your Gaussians show you R2R 2B 2R, where are you with respect to the order of events (and what then do you want to see to tell you this order of events has ended)?

- you have now created a point 3... you now want to see increasing red volume for the next dominant traverse of the new down channel

No... I was just trying to find a clear summary on how to draw gaussians... I looked at that drill but do not think I could complete it if I do not know how to draw them correctly.

 

Vienna,that comment was directed to nkhoi who referred readers to the "refinement thread" (Iterative Refinement) but i believe meant Spydertrader's Jack Hershey Futures Trading Journal page 264 gaussian drill.hth

Incorrect. R2R places you squarely at a Point Two

 

If your Gaussians show you R2R 2B, where are you with respect to the order of events?

- You have now created a point 2

 

Incorrect. The market has moved from Point Two through a non-dominant retrace and to the Point Three.

- you have now created a point 3... you now want to see increasing red volume for the next dominant traverse of the new down channel??

 

Incorrect. The market has moved from the Point Three and has headed back toward the Left Trend Line (LTL). The time has arrived for you to locate an FTT on your trading fractal.

 

HTH.

Alright.

 

Now, we are getting somewhere. You've narrowed things down to a binary choice.

 

Which Trough best represents the market fractals in terms of 'nesting'?

 

You've drawn things one way (as did Nkhoi in an earlier post), but another possible way also exists.

 

My understanding is that the nesting choice depends on the layout of RTLs.

 

In my graphic you see the "fast" fractal B2B breaks out of the prior "fast" RTL *and* the prior "medium" RTL so the medium B2B trough is placed coincident with the fast B2B trough.

 

The alternative - placing the medium B2B trough at the fast fractal 2R - implies that all of the medium level black volume has been non-dominant. Since we saw a medium RTL break out this is not the case.

 

As always - I might be wrong :)

My understanding is that the nesting choice depends on the layout of RTLs.

 

Remember the goal of this exercise: Accuracy and Precision. In other words, we want to annotate correctly and consistantly - all day - every day we look at a chart.

 

You've arrived at an answer based on a 'context oriented' solution. In order to know whether your rationale for this context applies to all other contexts, one must then locate a scenario where you feel a different solution applies and test accordingly.

 

Keep in mind the possibility your mind may have merged several concepts together (such as Point One's always overlap, Point Three's occassionally overlap, but Point Two's never overlap) in an effort to arrive at a solution to an old problem. I'm merely suggesting a better way to know whether (or not) a solution represents the solution.

 

One must always allow the market to provide the answers.

 

HTH.

O.K. look away from the charts again (for a moment).

 

Review this post.

 

 

Thanks for pointing me to that post. From the image in that post:

11927d1246813024-price-volume-relationship-b2b.jpg

 

I can see that for a single fractal case, B2B's through is located at the right trendline of previous down container just before it broke out with increasing volume. So for any fractal, am I correct by saying that B2B's trough is located at the last volume trough within previous container? This could happen at the first volume trough or 2nd volume trough of lower fractal, as long as it is within the previous container.

Such is the case for this specific example, but not necessarily all examples. One must strive to locate solutions which apply to all contexts, and not, apply solutions which work for a singular event.

 

So for any fractal, am I correct by saying that B2B's trough is located at the last volume trough within previous container?

 

Ever see Price shoot straight down (like a rocket) on super high increasing Volume directly after an FTT of an Up container? Does your solution work for such a scenario?

 

This could happen at the first volume trough or 2nd volume trough of lower fractal, as long as it is within the previous container.

 

The market (for whatever reason) might not provide a trough until well after Price crossed my previous right trend line (RTL). Now what do I do? :confused:

 

HTH.

Thanks for pointing that out. You are right, I did not consider the possibility of price broke out with increasing volume of the previous container right after we have an FTT. This means that the volume dominance shift within one bar, so the non-dominance part of the volume should be seen within that BO bar.

 

In this case, if I apply the same logic, I will put the trough on that BO bar.

Whatever conclusion you reach (based on a sufficient data set), make sure to test it against that which the market provides.

Thanks Spydertrader for this helpful guidance, and gucci for providing the initial question. I didn't think it was important to put the correct through before this discussion. I will review some charts to see if I can apply this hypothesis to the market consistently.

"... So B2B means Black 2 Black and that is a description of the price and volume move from point 1 to point 2 of the parallelogram that forms the analytical container used for decision making to continually extract money from the markets. Point 1 is beginning of B @ a peak in volume. The volume reaches a trough at 2, the BO of the RTL. So the trader "reads" this as increasing price and decreasing volume. A more general term is used for price;from H1 (Hypothesis 1) the term is continuing. The trough of volume coincides with the BO of the RTL. Price is B as it goes frther outside the old trend to a point 2 where volume is increasing to its peak. ..."

    • Date : 29th November 2021. Market Update – November 29 – Omicron dominates sentiment. USD (USDIndex 96.30) recovers from Fridays slump (95.98), Stocks lost over –2.2% in thin half-day trading, Oil FUTS lost –13%, Gold slumped and Yields tanked (10-yr 1.482%) on a safe haven (JPY & CHF bid) risk off day. (and a strange carry trade bid for EUR). Weekend news, as Countries block flights and tighten restricts, but first Omicron cases in SA appear mild and hospitalizations have not spiked, has seen a bounce in sentiment and Asian markets. Pfizer suggested it would take 100 days to adapt new vaccine, if required. US Yields 10yr trades up 5.1 bp at 1.52%, after Friday’s slump. Equities – tanked in thin and short day on Friday USA500 -106.84 (-2.27%) at 45941 – USA500.F trades higher at 4639. USOil – collapsed to $67.08 – now up nearly $4 at $71.00. OPEC+ have delayed this weeks meeting by 2 days & likely to delay planned January production increases. Gold spiked under $1780, has bounced to $1795 but struggles to recoup $1800   FX markets – EURUSD now 1.1270, after a +125pip rally on Friday, USDJPY now 113.36, from 115.50 to 113.00 on Friday & Cable back to 1.3325. Overnight – JPY Retail Sales recover but miss expectations (0.9% vs 1.2% & -0.5% last time). European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is down -27 ticks, US futures are also in the red & the US 10-year rate is up 5.1 bp at 1.52%. Stock markets remained under pressure during the Asian part of the session, but DAX and FTSE 100 futures are up 1.2% and 1.3% respectively and a 1.2% rise in the NASDAQ is leading US futures higher. A part reversal of Friday’s flows then as virus developments remain in focus. Travel restrictions are making a come back and the services sector in particular is facing fresh pain, but as Lagarde suggested over the weekend, the impact of Omicron is unlikely to throw economies back to the situation at the start of the pandemic, meaning the overall situation has not really changed. We continue to see the ECB on course to end PEPP purchases on time in March next year, although developments will add to the arguments of those who want to keep the flexibility on the distribution of asset purchases at least for future emergencies. The BoE meanwhile may be postponing the planned rate hike into next year.

    • USDJPY PRICE OUTFLOW IS DRAWN BY SELLERS BACK TO 114.840   USDJPY Price Analysis – November 25 USDJPY price outflow is being held back as a consequence of bears causing opposition to the market influence. The price structure of the market strives to maintain an uptrend configuration under a bullish influence. However, the sellers are causing some resistance in the market, which is causing a hold in the market configuration. Because of this conflict in the market, the outflow of the bulls in the market will be held back to the 114.840 critical level. USDJPY Critical Levels Resistance Levels: 114.840, 112.790 Support Levels: 110.800, 109.100 USDJPY Long Term Trend: Bullish The bullish outflow price structure initially began with the expansive breadth of consolidation. The market was birthed after a strong price expansion before the bullish uprise. The price undulated between the breadth of the 110.800 and 109.100 significant price levels. As a result of this accumulation, the price was then pushed out to higher levels. With the continuation of the market expansion, buyers outflow upward, with the bulls taking hold of the market. Furthermore, price continues to experience more outflows as several structural levels were broken. When USDJPY eventually gets to the 112.790 level, the price resumes its accumulation phase. The market encountered a short phase of expansion before resuming bullish persistence. The price finally breaks through the 114.840 significant level and we expect a withdrawal back to this price level before bullish engagement. The Tensile Strength indicator shows the resilience of the market influence as the market is set to resume its bullish leverage after sellers retreat. USDJPY Short Term Trend: Bearish The 4-hour chart of USDJPY shows the price configuration riding upward following a strong force that broke through the 114.840 critical level. The price is now set in a retreat motion as the price is seen to be pulling away to the 114.840 price level. The Moving Average Convergence and Divergence indicator shows the market’s prevalent direction as the price is set on a pullback course to the 114.840 critical level before bullish outflow.   Source: https://learn2.trade
    • EURJPY DEPRECIATES TO LOWS NEAR 128.00 FOLLOWING COVID RESURGENCE   EURJPY Price Analysis – November 26 EURJPY pair fell for the third session in a row on Friday, depreciating to the area of recent lows in the 128.00 range. As the new strain of COVID weighs heavily on investors’ sentiment, strong buying interest in the Japanese yen puts EURJPY under added pressure in the sub-129.00 levels. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 130.50, 130.00, 129.61 Support Levels: 127.00, 126.50, 126.00 EURJPY Long term Trend: Ranging On Friday, the EURJPY opened higher at 129.31 and moved lower to 127.79 intraday lows losing almost 1%. The pair plunged, as bears emerged and traders focused on levels below 128.00. To investigate the bearish scenario, a decisive fall below 128.00 must be established. The pair may continue to fall into the next session, with bearish traders targeting the 127.00 area as a possible objective. As long as the 128.00 support level holds and the price is sustained above, more gains may be expected. A strong breakout of 128.50, on the other hand, would confirm that the rebound from 127.79 low has come to stay, bringing this low back into focus as a new bottom. EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish The EURJPY is still trading bearishly from its October high of 133.47 on the 4-hour charts, and the intraday bias is still to the downside. If the resistance at 128.50 holds, a further drop is likely. A decisive rebound past 128.50, on the other hand, will consolidate on the entire rebound from 127.79 low level. The mid-term support turned resistance level of 130.00 will be the next level of contention. A break of revised support around the 128.00, on the other hand, might reverse the rebound and broaden the down leg from 130.00 with a new phase of the drop towards the mid 127.00 in the coming session.   Source: https://learn2.trade
