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 : 22nd May 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd May 2019.FX News Today Comments from Fed’s Bullard that a rate cut could become an “attractive option” if inflation continues to disappoint added support to bond markets ahead of the release of the Fed minutes from the May meeting. Ahead of today’s Fed minutes, this helped to lift sentiment and underpin stock market sentiment, which struggled for direction amid conflicting trade headlines. Reports that the US administration is considering blacklisting up to 5 Chinese surveillance firms, including Hikvision added fresh concerns about a deepening of trade frictions and put pressure on tech stocks. The GER30 futures are heading south in tandem with US futures after a mixed session in Asia, where mainland China bourses underperformed. The FTSE 100 future is getting some support from a weaker pound, which is shedding the gains seen in the wake of May’s latest Brexit deal yesterday At the same time, China’s ambassador to the US said Beijing is ready to resume talks and ASX and Nifty 50 slightly higher. The WTI future meanwhile fell back to USD 62.58 per barrel. Charts of the Day Technician’s Corner EURUSD spiked up briefly to 1.1188, just above its 20-day MA, though has now eased back under 1.1150. The Euro remains in sell the rally mode, given the Dollar’s yields advantage, and relatively better performing economy. EURUSD has posted 6-straight sessions of lower daily lows, a bearish signal, and has sights set on the May 3 bottom of 1.1135, then 2019 lows of 1.1110 seen in late April. XAUUSD: Renewed dollar strength, along with the return of risk-taking conditions has dented gold’s safe-haven appeal. The US easing of restrictions on Huawei has helped equity sentiment, to the detriment of gold prices. Next support comes at $1,270 in the near term, then $1,267.30, , the May 2 low, then $1,258.38, the 200-day MA. Main Macro Events Today Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Prices are expected to rise in April, with overall inflation expected to stand at 2.1%y/y, compared to 1.9% y/y last month. Retail Sales and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) –Canadian sales are expected to have eased by 0.4% m/m in March, compared to 0.8% m/m in February. FOMC Meeting Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) FOMC minutes, detailing the view of each of the Fed Governors and FOMC Members, shed light on their perspectives regarding the future of the US economy. FOMC left policy on hold earlier this month, and it cited solid growth, low headline and core inflation, though Powell said in his presser that the weakness was likely “transitory”.

    • The Nifty FMCG index slipped 1% on Wednesday amid heavy selling pressure seen in UBL, United Spirit, HUL, Jubilant Foodworks, and GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare.
    • With earnings a week from Thursday, I like $KHC. Has a 5% dividend yield, Buffet owns a big chunk. Investors expect horrible news (expectations low). Stock trading at multi-year lows. Chart in extreme oversold area. It has all the makings of a bounce. -Gareth Soloway
