I am a follower of the VSA/Wyckoff approach, especially Tom Williams.

 

Recently, the folks at Tradeguider has embraced the Weis Wave,

developed by David Weis, a Wyckoff specialist.

 

It looks like it accumulates the total volume of not the individual bars,

but rather the waves that forms.

 

Is this another tool that should be

mastered to acquire the skills necessary to trade VSA?

It looks like Dr. Dayton has totally embraced this tool as well.

 

Personally, I feel that there is no reason to add any new

material to those taught by Tom Williams, the father of VSA.

 

I am interested in any opinions you may have.

 

Thanks

David Weis is someone I really respect. I don't own his Weis Wave but I coded my own. I find it helpful along side VSA and the Wyckoff Method. I've only been using it for a short while and IMO it shows areas of no supply/demand and areas where there is a lot of effort and not much result allowing to either take positions with more confidence or where there isn't a bar you would take a position off of. It also shows the shortening of the thrust indicating potential reversals.

 

Its a tool like anything else. Its simple in its design and anyone with familiarity with the three basic Wyckoff laws will find it useful. (Supply v Demand, Effort v Result and Cause v Effect).

 

Just my two cents.

I'm not sure if it will matter to the interpretation, but Williams' VSA is not pure Wyckoff. It is modified Wykcoff. As I understand it, Weis and Gary Fullett are pure Wyckoff instructors. So, I'm not sure if there might be some minor conflict in interpretation of the Weis Wave vs. VSA.

Your statement is 100% correct !!!

 

David & Gary are purists. I like the old masters :) .

I recall reading somewhere in this forum that Eiger

is actually Dr. Dayton.

 

His analysis on this forum is my favorite since the setups he looks for

are clearly explained in detail using VSA principles.

 

By the way, Gavin has a 2nd book that shows the sequence of

VSA principles that he looks for before taking a trade.

I think it may still be available for free.

 

I thought that this book helps out a lot in avoiding low

probability trades, and adds a lot of structure in analyzing the market.

Dr. Dayton was taught by David Weis. He also is a user of the Weis Wave and has numerous mentions of it on his website and in the charts he posts.

 

I have been waiting eagerly for David Weis's book to be published.

 

Looks like it will come out in early 2013, according to the

Amazon website. In the mean time, I should probably

go to his website to learn more about the Wyckoff method.

Has anyone seen mboxx.org? Looks similar to weis wave, but uses boxes intstead of the zig zag indicator to accumulate volume, and also it accumulates time. This is very intersting since weis wave does not show accumulation of time. I read and am studying wyckoff logic, and wyckoff wrote that volume and time are correlated. Interesting. Anybody have any thoughts about this? I haven't bought it....

    • Date : 23rd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.FX News Today A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET. Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street. Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures. The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan. Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution. New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures. Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years. Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July. Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher. The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole. GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency. Main Macro Events Today   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
