Can you talk about accelerating your pink traverse to a new pt3 @ 10/14 14:00? It seems necessary on my chart too, but I can't figure out what gives us the 'heads up' that a new traverse pt3 is on the table.

 

Well, first of all, I think you can safely ignore that last chart I posted. I was trying to illustrate something that just did not come out right. The "idea" behind that chart was flawed as well.

 

But I would be happy to give a rundown of This Chart which I believe to be the most accurate of my charts. But note that the exact ending points for some of the gaussians are probably a bit rough, especially on the morning of the 14th.

 

The idea behind the chart I just linked hinges on WWT (what wasn't that) and the FB-Lateral around mid-day on the 14th. I believe that lateral to be equal (the same fractal) to the thin Orange down container and worked backwards from there. Now, I could not decide if the morning of the 14th was Pt3 of a Tape or a Traverse, but I did know that an Up Tape and Down Tape followed my Lateral. So, all I have to do is decide what fractal the Orange thin line is and that will tell me what came before.

 

If that Orange container is a Tape, then the Lateral is a Tape and the Traverse Acc's there...and we get two orphan Tapes trailing after. So my thinking is that this can't be correct.

 

If that Orange container is a piece of a Tape (namely 2R) then the Lateral is also a piece (that follows what I think is Pace Acc) and I can Acc the Tape. Now I have one Down Tape (the Purple lines) followed by an Up Tape>Down Tape, this seems to work. Which means the afternoon of the 13th and the morning of the 14th are pieces of a Tape.

 

I know this probably seems an overly convoluted way to try to answer your question, but what I think would not have made sense without my perspective.

 

Can you talk about accelerating your pink traverse to a new pt3 @ 10/14 14:00?

 

Short answer for what I think:

 

There is not a new Pt3 for the Traverse at 14:00. It is the Pt3 for the Traverse.

 

 

Disclaimer: Please assume everything I say is incorrect, as it may very well be. It is very possible that I jumped fractals forwards and backwards, just ending where it seemed to work by chance.

 

I hope this helps more than it hurts. :)

Think in terms of tapes. Start with what is observable. To observe a traverse you need at least two tapes break each other, whereas the volume tells you whether those breaks are noteworthy or not.

 

I meant three tapes of course. I apologize for any confusion.

Thanks a lot, that helps!

 

Listen. You need to fight the urge to overcomplicate things. In the beginning stages of attempting to learn this material, everyone (including myself) tries to 'invent' different ways they 'feel' might best suite their needs, but the reality is, far different than one expects. You currently find yourself 'hung up' on vocabulary. Your prior educational experience dictates you need to understand vocabulary in order to understand a concept. This is true only in cases where vocabulary is the differentiating factor.

 

In this specific case the words "tape, traverse, channel, bbt, sub bbt sub-sub bbt (or however many fractals down the rabbit hole one wishes to travel)" have zero relevance to understanding. One could just as easily use "thin, medium, thick, dotted, dashed, dot-dashed" or even "pig, goat, cow, spider, insect, bateria" to describe the exact same events. You understand the "pig, goat, cow" analogy because you know the absolute definition of each organism. You therefore assume, using the same approach, all you need is to understand the absolute definition of "tape, traverse, channel or bbt," What the reality is you have yet to understand that the market often speaks in a language which (while sometimes providing absolutes) most frequently transfers information in a relative sense.

 

In other words, you should focus on when you have a completed container compared to when the market continues to build the same container. In such a fashion, you need not know what to call the container itself, but by applying the fractal nature of all markets, you can know when one container has ended, and another has begun.

A significant amount of information exists with the creation of each and every Volume Bar. Similarly, the market provides far more information, with respect to Pace Changes, than just how 'non-dom sub tapes' present themselves.

 

I am sure that must be true, but I don't 'know' it yet. At my present level of annotation ability it is hard to see two periods that look the same in the price pane, have different volume arrangements, and have different outcomes.

 

 

How can you know if your statement resulted from accurate (or incorrect) information?

 

It is composed of a complete volume sequence and it's container breaks the previous container. Also, that part is now coming out the same each time I erase and start over with a refinement to my annotation technique. I am convinced that its there.

 

 

Context, always has been, and always will be, king. You cannot make decisions in a vacuum. VE's must always be handled in a consistant fashion. Fanning must always be handled in a consistant fashion. Pace changes must always be handled in a consistant fashion. Order of events must always be handled in a consistant fashion. Dominance and Non-dominance must always be handled in a consistant fashion.

 

I hear that. I do not yet understand non-ve fanning/acceleration or the impact of pace changes.

 

 

The current Traverse under discussion exists within a known entity called a channel. Annotate all components of the channel in a consistant fashion and you'll understand the answers you seek existed right in front of you all along.

r

 

Are you implying that consistency in annotation requires thorough differentiation? Makes sense to me.

 

I am currently attempting to why the black thick thing and the red thick thing are the same fractal. If I were to consistently apply the annotation method used up to 15:05, it would be a medium thing. The black thing does start on extreme volume; is that sufficient (in this particular context) to know that this container is on the thick fractal?

 

Thanks again for your time and commentary.

You have one more container to annotate in order to create a thick fractal (channel). You'll then have three medium weight containers to compare and contrast. If you complete the annotation process for a channel (thick container), you should see two very similar traverses and one different traverse. Determining why the two are similar vs why the one is different should then become easier for you.

Not to confuse but thought it was worth mentioning, it's been said the smallest possible tape is 5 bars - though I can't remember seeing one personally. Food for thought on tape breaks and volume.

 

Probably should have said container instead of tape, but you get the idea. Sheep, goat, poodle.

I have tryed a strategy in NT based on fast changes in volume coupled with price action but longterm backtesting yielded always no profit.

 

Without the ability to accurately reflect market sentiment in a binary fashion, one cannot expect to locate a positive result from neither back testing nor walk forward analysis.

 

In addition, how fast (a gradient measurement) cannot override the market signals of 'change' or 'continue.' (binary measurement).

 

HTH.

I think it must come down to starting volume, although the following table suggests vol@pt 2 as a possibility

 

Traverse #: vol @ pt1, pt2, pt3

1: medium, fast, medium

2: extreme, extreme, fast

3: extreme, extreme, extreme

 

 

The thick sequence is complete at the end of the third traverse, which is a VE of the thick container. There follows two more medium containers (annotated that way based on starting volume) before price escapes the thick container. Does that make any sense, or am I still mucking things up?

 

Thanks again; your commentary is very helpful.

Everything ends at 10:30. A whole new set of things begins at 10:30. Don't concern yourself with what you believe happens after 10:30, but remain focused on what happens between 2:15 and 10:30.

This might provide some help. Note how important THOROUGH annotations can get sometimes :). And Spyder has repeated that same thing again and again.:)

Your arrows clockwise:

 

ibgs/ftt, bo of orange container on higher vol, ob, i have no idea

 

Why the orange container? Price doesn't ve the pink container (same as my med red) until after the pt 3 of the orange. What about the ob makes it say, "I am the pt 3 you are looking for."?

Look at where 2B is, and what the price does at 2B.

 

As far as the orange container is concerned, try to draw the original pink rtl through

the points 1 and 3. I hope you'll succeed.:)

If I may ask, to see if I'm getting on the same page.

Would you agree with the remainder of the 15th from 10.30 onwards?

(the Blue/Magenta and Blue).

 

Many thx

I've coloured the Traverse containers Magenta/Blue to be relative to each other.

This is for the purpose of creating a "thing".

A magenta thing and blue thing.

 

We know we have a Channel P1 at 10:30,

there for the Channel P2 (which would normally be at the end of the Blue container)

needs to be outside the previous down Channel RTL.

 

I've lost the carry over annotations so can't recall if the previous down Channel LTL VE'd

and if so then where that previous down Channel RTL is.

 

Regardless, if the end of the blue from 10:30 gets us to a Channel P2 that is

outside previous down channel RTL then fine.

If it does not then fine, because we then know the blue from 10:30 and magenta from 11:40 and last Blue from 14:05 are actually all faster things building the Blue.

Which would get us to Channel P2.

 

Hope that makes sense.

Isn't it nice?:) But you should annotate your ltl's as well because they are very important too.

Sorry, I must be missing your meaning. Our gaussians are different, as I put the 2b on the first ob of the container. Why would the 2nd ob be the (properly annotated) 2b?

 

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for the hint. When the smallest containers are made more carefully (widen for closes within the container, starting with the 9:15 bar), the gaussians are much clearer.

 

If the attached annotations are more correct, I still don't understand why the thick container is over and done with at the end of the third medium container. Is it that the ve's of the thick thing caused by the third medium container are at a higher volume than pt 2(thick)? Maybe reannotating the first medium with newfound care will show enough examples at the thin level for differentiation.

    • 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.

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.

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.
