Intensity, Intelligent Agents, Synergy & 2 Great Hours Today

Recommended Posts

At 1041 PST Today 05/26 on a failure to make a new high, intense commercial selling formed a spike that formed a local extreme that would see the market fall over 20 points to new session lows. That spike is shown in the first chart below.

 

Following the graph of the sell spike are 3 shots of the HUD taken during the next 2 hours of decline that show recommended TradePoints in 7 intra session time frames.

 

The chart below the HUD shots is of a smaller time frame and shows how our intelligent agents use inputs from measure of intensity and balance of trade to provide real time trade recommendations.

 

The last graph shows the buy spike in commercial intensity than ended our short and gave us a short term long that was good for almost 8 points and we closed out for the day.

 

These graphs show the power of the synergy that can come from using inputs from old-school technical analysis into state of the art intelligent agents and networks of agents.

 

This first graph shows the sell spike that started it all:

These three shots of the HUD reflect market conditions and show specific trade recommendations on the way down

This graph shows how agents operating in the shorter time frames parse legs in both directions

These 2 graphs show the buy spike that ended our short and gave us one last trade on the long side to end the day

As i said in earlier posts in my opinion these charts provide no value for the community because you are showing just a trends. I'm not pushing you to provide anything, nor i'm saying that it is a junk, just trying to dispute. I can show you a chart with a simple EMA's where are red paintbars and it is price below EMA and green - above EMA. I'd trade it tick by tick as your agents show. Or WCCI indicator, or any trend-following indi. All they screamed SELL. The main value comes when one/intelligent agent could avoid channel and to detect trend as early as it begun. I've programmed nearly 40 diffirent systems in my life and i could say that every system sucks if it's not detecting and avoiding chop and are not self-adjusting to x period volatility. So i'm also not so sure that your stuff is so great when there is no trend. Your problem is that you almost everywhere showing just a trends and what happened before this trend and no screenshots how did agents worked ( and intensity too ) when price was in channel all the day and every auto system sucked a lot. I'd say if the trader/system can't detect and to avoid chop it has no value, just mine opinion. If we could see how it trades chop, well i will say it's cool. If you'll say that you trade it, and this is not auto system well it's pure discretional trading. And good discretional trader doesn't need all this quant stuff. Look at the floor traders, they doesn't need any quant indicators and neuro advisors. Currently it's just self-ego fullfilling screenshots, because as you said there are no real quants at TL, and if there are some, all of them are working for you. Let's discuss chop avoiding/volatility adjusting techniques and not pure trend following stuff.

Pat loves to provide after-the-fact charts on trending moves.

 

Since this was an obvious trade for you Pat and to show doubters out there, you should include your blotter as well showing actual executions and how you profited from this in real-time for once.

 

Otherwise, just another trending move that as the above poster said you don't need any fancy indicators to catch a trending move. A simple EMA will do the trick.

For shame. Regardless of the "reason," it's highly unethical to post private e-mail's and PM's in the public forum without permission. I trust the admins will delete the post as soon as it's discovered.

I agree but given the the situation where there is a huge spread between what they tell me and what they post in public, I think the public's right to know the truth trumps the duplicitous posters' protection. I certainly don't mind if they post my replies.

Hey, Pat, i'm ethical person and i will not do same things. Just for a future - take it easy, you have very strong self-defending instinct. It seems that you've had some problems in your childhood or at school with another kids. Yes, i've reproduced your indicator and i've reproduced it to see if it have some value. I don't see anything wrong in these emails because i've just asked some charts from you to compare my work with yours. And now after the testings i see that it doesn't provide any edge. I just trying to discuss this thing and you are taking this as an attack to your person. You know, i'm talking the truth and here is a reason why you are so angry. The truth are attacking your EGO and worthless systems. Please, don't spam anymore, the person who have developed/will develop these indicators will see no value here and the person, who can't develop it wouldn't study nothing new from your worthless screenshots.

Agreed TMBTC.

 

Disgusting behavior. I guess that's what we'd expect from someone who starts up thread after thread to spam the forum.

 

 

 

Spam is when you are selling something, right? You will notice I turned down these offers to buy as well as more than 100 others and have never sold or leased the technolgoies discussed in these threads to anyone.

 

cheers

You might notice that I have been publicly thanked 403 times for my posts. I receive almost daily emails and pms thanking me and congratulating my on the same work you suddenly find worthless after you pestered me to buy it and show you how to build your own.

 

Some get a lot from my posts, some get a little bit and some don't get it at all.

 

BTW from what you showed me of your work, it in no way resembles the work we are doing. But you already know that because I told you that almost a month ago.

UB, I agree with TMBTC... posting PM's without their agreements is south of slimeball.

Also, really you could have spent about the same amount of energy as with the posting in privately discussing and comparing concepts with Boomerangas about his questions without giving away an 'edge'.

 

You come on here like you're going to contribute, someone like a Boomerangas asks some specifics, you backhand him, then have the nerve to get all self righteous... small wonder more and more are feeling your posts are at least a waste of time... if not worse...

 

I do 'understand' proprietary. My understanding, gained from experience, is that most public discussions of 'edges' are a waste of time. Many private ones are too. But...

 

Here's an actionable + for your charts - please recruit elsewhere... thx

It should go without saying, but no posting private messages, PM's etc... I have deleted the posts mentioning it.

 

Whether the argument/debate on the value of the above is worthwhile I can leave you all to discuss that -- we're all adults right? I am assuming you do not want me moderating everything just because it gets a little controversial. No fun in that.

 

However, please stick to the topic at hand rather than personal. Posters do have the right to question a post, and even say it's wrong. They are not stalkers and this isn't a forum where we all need to agree with every post and if we do, get talked down to. At the same time, make the argument constructive -- disagree, say why and let's not challenge each other personally. If you think it's crap, you're entitled - just say why constructively and if you love it, give it a "Thanks"

 

Thanks for the understanding.

I'm firmly in the 'don't get it' camp. There is nothing at all in those charts that a simple volume plot wouldn't have shown to some extent or the other. However, from the posts I have read:

 

- The whole thing wreaks of unnecessary complication. All those flashing lights, pie charts etc are for the ego to appear clever. Just my opinion of course :) If I want to know if price is going up or down, I simply look at the numbers - they do a pretty good job for me. e.g 93 is higher than 89, so the price must have gone up 4. Not hard is it?

- There seems to be some claim in the ability to detect who is responsible for this activity. Any such attempt is purely opinion as I have shown in other threads of Uber Blame's

- There have been somewhat arrogant posts dismissing VSA, TA, MP and other methods, yet it would seem that there are in fact great parallels in what and how things are being explained. I'd hate to see Uber Blames face if any serious quant saw his work. Oooh how they would scoff!

 

 

I find the whole scenario to be simply an exercise in inflating ego and attention seeking.

 

Uber Blame - Thanks for the PM offering me a job in your secret hedge fund/prop shop hybrid, but no thanks. You have a tea boy, and an excellent job he does too! I suggest you keep him.

Here’s BF point from way back early in the thread…

 

14 trades – all winners.

Not the slightest consideration (mental or coding) of ‘commercials’

or even volume (nope -bottom indicator ain’t volume…)

no Heads Up Display

no cross time frame, etc Intelligent Agents – except the ones inside my head and they aren’t that bright :)

no intensity readings…

not rocket science… if I can do it, many of the traders who are a lot smarter than me on here can too…

 

btw normally style on price chart is not +'s ... temporarily changed it for comparison purposes...

I'd say in addition that if one really worked in this industry for a long time as a dealer/broker/market maker/rocket scientist you should be aware that any serious trader, which trades 100+ ES lots per trade don't use ANY indicators. I never saw such a guy at the "institutionals" desks and Urma, tell me whatever you want.

 

p.s. it seems that Urma is having a bad trading day today ( you can't trade profitable if you are in the state of imbalance of nervous cells inventory ;) )

Correct.

 

I did once see some FX traders at Fuji (now Mizuho) using Bollinger Bands, but thats it. (I've never seen a real quant use Tradestation either....)

Exactly. These days I’m trading far more currencies than indexes (much more bang for the buck) and I was sorta thinking the same thing - I doubt many on the big desks are poring over charts with 66 'intelligent agents' cranking away on the screen… no doubt a percentage of them are, but not many…

I'd say yes, it depends from trader and market traded ( locals, market makers, big sharks doesn't use it ) But mid-sized desks are using this because it provides some vision of real sup/res and the real value of the instrument.

I wonder if "professional traders" use Market Profile too.

Serious question -

 

Have these intelligent agents ever generated losing trades?

 

I'll fess up and admit I have losing trades sometimes, I'm sure others do as well. But what about the intelligent agents?????

 

It would be interesting to see some expectancy or risk-Reward stats along with win rate.

 

How intelligent are they?

My earlier post got deleted because I mistakenly quoted Pat's scurrilous post including other's private messages. Thanks for that MMW and for responding to mine and thousands of other complaints.

 

It seems that this thread represents how people see UrmaBlume and his repeat posts/thread starts of the same thing. Each time it wins. Each time its a miracle of Pat's genius.

 

Each time hundreds of people pm him to tell him how wonderful and generous he is. Each time hundreds pm to ask for jobs. We all go Wow!

 

What kind of fantasy do you need to live in to do this?

Hey Guys! Look at the magic indicator that I have.

I want you to wish that you had it.

I want you to think that my magic indicator is what you need to be a successful trader.

It boosts my ego when people try to figure out what I am doing.

I want you to wish you were like me.

I don't realize how utterly flawed my reasoning is.

I don't reaalize that some of you know how flawed my reasoning is.

I dare not show you how poorly the magic indicator performs on real time data

I could have made a lot of money in the past with my magic indicator

I have not learned how to trade yet, but somehow I am compelled to make you think that I am a better trader than you.

My ego is very important to me.

Poker players from a particular country make great traders.

 

Almost poetic.

You have sour grape written all over your forehead...

His posts are no more obscure than dbphoenix talking about his ebook,

(or many cryptic posts around the internet),

the only difference is -- your desire for urma's so called "secret" is

greater than your wish for db's book.

as in any situation, not just on an anonymous internet forum, it would take less energy to walk away from a discussion you cannot win.

I'll throw my 2cents.

 

I have bought and read DBs book and the free download of the Wyckoff's couse ("The Wyckoff method of tape reading.")

 

Recently I finished Mamis' "When to Sell" "How to buy" and "The nature of risk."

 

From the above, you can tell what I like, how I think and how I strive to trade.

 

_____

 

A while back ago, I bought a highly recommended and expensive TA book.

 

I am absolutely sure, many will lose money attempting find the imaginary patterns described.

 

So what?

Did I do a review on it?

No.

Rather, the thought that this passed off as insights and cutting edge, made me relieved.

Do I have a moral obligation to tell others what I think of this book?

No, I do not.

If someone at TL asked me about the book, I'd probably would tell them what I thought, but even then, I may not, it depends on the person asking.

 

__

 

I have no opinion on what Urma is presenting, maybe it only helps him.

I have heard it say of other traders that "he is a great trader, inspite of the lousy system that he is using."

Or maybe, Urma is thinking of marketing this in the future.

So what?

The person being marketed to is still responsible for his/her perception of what is being presented.

my 2 pennies.

    • Date : 23rd October 2020.Dollar Dips as Equities escalate.EURUSD, H1 The Dollar fell back concomitantly with rallying European stock markets and US index futures, which was likely a repositioning dynamic after declining over the last two weeks.EURUSD rebounded quite strongly, rising back above 1.1850 from a three-day low at 1.1787. Preliminary October PMI data in the services and composite readings out of the Eurozone and UK undershot the median forecast of economists, but didn’t impact the Euro or Sterling. Technically, the H1 chart has moved over the 50-hour moving average (1.1835) to test R1 at 1.1852; above here is Wednesday’s high and R2 at 1.1885. Today’s pivot point is next support at 1.1830, below the 50-hour moving average. The MACD histogram has broken the zero line and the signal is starting to rise, although still south of the zero line, RSI is positive and trades at 64.50, Stochastics are moving into the OB zone.Cable settled at near net unchanged levels around 1.3090-95 after dropping back from a high at 1.3124. The UK currency remains comfortably up on week-ago and month-ago levels against the Dollar and Euro, and others, with market participants anticipating a limited trade deal between the EU and UK. The two sides are amid intensive face-to-face discussions. The UK and Japan today signed the trade deal that was agreed in principle a month ago.USDJPY is modestly softer after upside forays over the last day stalled at 104.93-95. At levels around 104.70, the pair remains down by 1% on the high seen on Wednesday. AUDUSD rallied to an eight-day high at 0.7158, floated by higher stock markets in Europe and an above-forecast composite PMI reading out of Australia. Global asset markets are likely to remain skittish, notwithstanding the rally today, with investors pondering the uncertainties presented by the surge in Covid cases in Europe and elsewhere, including now in many US states and in Canada, and which are leading to ever more restrictive countermeasures. The ongoing delay in new US fiscal stimulus and the event risk posed by the upcoming US elections are also in the mix. Regarding the elections, polls point to a Biden presidency, but it is less clear if his Democratic party can take control of the Senate. If not, then Congress will remain split at least until the mid-term elections in two years, which will limit the scope for policy changes and crimp Democrat ambitions for expansive fiscal policy.US data later is topped by flash PMI data, Manufacturing numbers are expected to show a slight rise to 53.5 from 53.2 last time, whilst the more important and significant Services numbers are expected to increase by a single tick from 54.6 to 54.7.

    • Date : 22nd October 2020.Volatility and US elections.US Elections had been and always expected to be an event historically extremely volatile globally. Elections similar to other political or banking sector events are notably treated by market participants with anticipation and speculation. As discussed in our HF Markets Q4 Outlook, markets look to have already pricing in the possibility of Biden’s victory even though they overall maintain an increasing cautious optimism, holding US Dollar basket to 2018 low territory.Election-year fund flows, 1993-2020Historically, it has been noticed that during election years, market participants due to the heightened uncertainty, shift their investments into Money market funds instead from the safety of stock and bond funds, AS THEY waiting out. The 2020 is not any different but it’s been a unique one as we have seen an extreme money flow into currency assets in comparison with past election years, due the sluggish US and worldwide economic activity as the Covid-19 crisis resumes, the truce with China again which is under scrutiny, the lockdowns in several areas, the lack of additional fiscal stimulus from central bankers, Brexit frictions and the fear of double dip recession in Europe.Year-to-date fund flows, through June 30Source: BlackRock, with data from Morningstar as of June 30, 2020. Money market funds, stock funds and bond funds are represented by their respective US fund categories as defined by Morningstar.That said, cash balance into money funds spike to $980 in 2020 as of June 30, given the large risk premia. However as soon as uncertainty recedes we might see equity market’s volatility and volume to spike again since they consider to be attractive and more stable assets in period which there are historically low interest rates. If we emphasize on the medium term thought it is expected that if current conditions sustained, market volatility will extend beyond Election days with any potential outcome, i.e. a Biden win and Democrat majority in Congress, a Biden win but split Congress, or a Trump victory with split Congress.Meanwhile, a very chart from Wells Fargo Investment Institute, shows the USA500 implied Volatility index along with USA500 index performance prior and post the Election Day based on the election since 1988 with 2008 recession year excluded. This chart interestingly suggest that typically the USA500 tends to eased/consolidate a bit a month prior elections despite a extremely high volatility, while USA500 price continue their upwards move after the election day even though volatility declines significantly.WELLS FARGO INVESTMENT INSTITUTEAlways trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 21st October 2020.USD Down, GBP & Crypto’s Higher, CAD data.The Dollar underperformed while the Pound outperformed and the Yen, diverging from its usual close correlation with the Dollar, was measuring as the second strongest of the main currencies. Global stock markets have been skittish, with European indices dropping and US equity index futures giving back gains in returning to near net unchanged levels.Sterling has rallied quite strongly, showing a 1.0%+ gain on the Dollar at prevailing levels, as it rallied to test 1.3100. EURGBP is back under 0.9100 and down over 0.5% and testing 0.9050. The market reacted to remarks from EU trade negotiator, Barnier, that talks with the UK could continue “day and night.” There was also news that US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said that a trade agreement with the UK would come “reasonably soon.” The currency market evidently remains bullish on the EU and UK reaching an agreement, although the game of chicken between the two sides is continuing. Boris Johnson’s position is that the EU must fundamentally change its stance, while France’s European affairs minister Clément Beaune asserted yesterday that there would be “no new approach.” USDJPY tumbled under 105.00 en-route to printing a one-month low at 104.55. EURUSD lifted to a one-month high at 1.1868.USDCAD posted a new low for a fourth consecutive day in pegging a six-week low at 1.3080 before recouping back above 1.3100 amid a near 2% drop in oil prices. USOil fell from the $41.88 highs seen on Tuesday to a low of $40.86 in London morning trade. The API reported a 600k bbl weekly inventory build after the close yesterday, versus expectations for a 2.0 mln bbl draw, which weighed on prices some. Inventories at the Cushing, OK storage hub were up by 1.2 mln bbls. Concerns over Covid related demand destruction, along with increased crude production from Libya, should keep a cap on prices for now. The EIA weekly inventory report is due at 14:30 GMT.Canada’s CPI accelerated and retail sales grew, but both measures were on the tame side. CPI rose 0.5% y/y in September after the 0.1% gain in August. But CPI dipped -0.1% on an m/m basis (nsa) after the -0.1% slip in August and flat (0.0%) reading in July. CPI last rose on an m/m basis in June, rising 0.8%. The average of the three core CPI measures was 1.7% y/y, matching the 1.7% average seen in August. The CPI report remains consistent with ample slack in the economy, with a long way to go before activity returns to pre-pandemic levels across all industries. Meanwhile, retail sales rose 0.4% in August (m/m, sa) after a 1.0% gain in July (revised from 0.6%). Statistics Canada’s preliminary estimate is for little change in September retail sales. Sales have returned to more typical growth rates following the initial pop that followed the reopening of the economy — sales surged 21.2% in May after plunging -24.8% in April and falling -10.0% in March. Retail sales jumped 22.5% in June, an all time high growth rate. The ex-autos sales aggregate gained 0.5% in August. Both measures undershot expectations for stronger gains. Tame annual CPI growth along with the deceleration in retail sales is consistent with steady, accommodative policy from the BoC for an extended period.Elsewhere, BTCUSD moved to 2020 highs after Paypal confirmed it will allow cryptocurrency buying, selling and shopping on its network.¹ The press release stated it “signaled its plans to significantly increase cryptocurrency’s utility by making it available as a funding source for purchases at its 26 million merchants worldwide.

    • re racISM Seek the truth. Confront the lies.   Any white people who are racist are racist out of fear ... any 'supremacy' beliefs are compensatory.  Same with blacks... Seek the truth. Confront the lies.   Contrary to what you've been taught in school and now in culture, white people did not invent slavery.  Nor have they applied the most consistently horrific practices of slave owners, historically or currently.   Contrary to what you've been taught in school and now in culture, in fact, white people have done more to eradicate slavery / humans as property from the face of the earth than any other race - ever.   Seek the truth.  Confront the lies.  If you're white, don’t allow yourself to be guilted.   That just compounds the issues and divisions.   You are not individually or collectively responsible for the exploitation of minorities by a small percentage of psychopaths who happen to also be the same ‘race’ as you are ...  just because black people’s ‘self esteem’  generally needs to rise - especially those ‘trapped’ on the concrete plantations - is no reason your’s needs to fall ... don’t play into ivory tower false dialectic psyops designed to enslave EVERYBODY!   “A man’s rights rest in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”  Frederick Douglass, 1867  civil rights leader in response to post-Civil War segregation laws... my god was that boy and this boy unwoke or what
