[VSA] Volume Spread Analysis Part I

Recommended Posts

could not help my self

Shep, you don't use pivots of any kind?

 

What are the value lines on your volume? Do you use this to classify volume into Low, average, high etc?

thanks

Hi PivotProfiler;

 

what is it that pissed you off and led you to delete the charts from the VSA thread?

and the "mentally using MP" thread ? :thumbs down::thumbs down::thumbs down:

Hello TinGull and moderators;

 

How is it possible to delete charts from past posts, when the edit button disappears after 1 hour? :frustrated::frustrated::frustrated:

 

The only similar deletion was by a moderator to one of walterw threads, when all attachments were deleted. :crap:

 

The remedy was to restore the thread from the backup; Soultrader decided against that action because the newer posts (since the backup) would disappear. :pc guru:

 

Well, this time IF you guys move FAST ENOUGH, it will not matter if you lose the grand total of 10 posts that were posted all day today.

PLEASE GO AHEAD AND RESTORE THE THREADS.

 

Unicorn.

 

It appears that nobody cared to answer my previous post on this matter, this morning. http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/6/mentally-using-mp-946-4.html#post29809

I wonder why. Nobody cares or moderators don't moderate? :confused::confused::confused:

I just found out about this. I will look into what happened.

 

A database backup will not do as attachments (charts) are stored in a file server and not in the database. It appears PP did edit the threads and removed the attachments. I am still investigating why and how this was done when edit posts function disables after 30mins.

Well I was the mod that botched Walt's thread for which I apologized profusely. I still hesitate and look twice before I mod anything. They suck, but accidents do happen unfortunately. :(

 

Unless you report a post there is no global email that goes to the mods. And honestly with an issue this large and time sensitive Soultrader would be who we would PM. If this ever arises again you would probably be best to PM Soultrader directly and explain the situation to get a jump start rather than wait for a mod to see your thread.

 

I can assure you it was not because mod's didn't care...I'm pretty bummed because I used this thread to learn VSA. I didn't see your thread, if you need attention to an issue don't hesitate to make a post and report it...that will get a global email out to the mod of that category.

 

I'm hoping these can be recovered. I understand your frusteration but please, lets be fair to the mods here.

Hi,

 

I am trying my best to see if we can get a restore for this thread. If so, we will create a duplicate of this thread but with data most likely until yesterday. I will need to wait until PP gets a hold of me to see why the attachments were deleted. Also, one thing that still having trouble figuring out is how he managed to do so. Thanks

Hey Shep, if you post a trade today, being a VSA thread and all, would you kindly do a walk through of the VSA principles that are setting you up?

I noticed you'll enter at the close of certain bars. Could you tell us what the bar told you?

Thanks, I know it takes time to do it this way but it would be appreciated and a lot could be learned from it.

Good to have you here at TL.

i am not the teacher i am a student of joels so he is the one to ask.

 

What's the point of posting trades if you're not going to contribute to people's learning? Are you just proving that Joel is real or something?

I think shep is in a tough spot. As a student of Joel, he may be under some non-disclosure restrictions and/or does not want to detract from Joel's business. I realize we all want things disclosed in the forum, but we also have to respect shep if he cannot provide specific details.

 

I would suggest taking the free trial that Joel offers to show his trading in a live environment. If anyone does, provide a review here for others: http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f92/reviews-of-www-tradingrealization-biz-with-3422.html

I think that's fair enough BF, and I think Shep has shown that what he is doing is working. I suppose we can all have a look at his charts and interpret them too. Given that this thread is all about learning the best place for posting future trades if disclosure of rules etc. is a problem is probably in a journal/blog, the facilities for which are also provided on this forum?

 

Edit: I should add that Shep has elaborated on his trades in some of his earlier posts, which was really valuable.

Here's a trade I made this morning. Very high volume downbar with the next bar up shows buying on the down move. The next bar is a no supply, volume less than the previous two, go long.

I'm sure PP would be backing me up on this one.

 

I exited just prior to the pivot as a personal preference because often there is supply there.

its not a non-disclosure issue, its just good faith, i owe joel a lot, the only reason i was posting trades was to prove that trading of price and volume works, and one should keep studying what works.

Hi Tingull (starter of the thread), or whoever moderates this thread;

 

Is it not time to make VSA thread number 2 (the son of VSA - or whatever) ?

 

Why are you guys letting threads become huge monsters ?

Unicorn,

 

We tried that, but no one participated in the second VSA thread entitled VSA II and continued posting on this one. Therefore VSA II, the thread was scrapped.

That is the reason that after informing people of the existence of the continuation thread, moderators lock the primary (first) thread before it becomes huge. SIMPLE AND EASY.

 

It is also helpful when the initiator or the main participants of a widely followed thread, are encouraged by moderators to keep a secondary thread with the Key methodology and a list of pointers to the most beneficial posts of the main thread. SIMPLE AND EASY when moderators actively moderate.

 

So Mr Paul, I for one, am requesting that this thread be closed, and that the moderators (or one of the main contributors) create the continuation thread after posting the appropriate notice.

 

I certainly hope that the main contributors to this thread see the reason that I am asking this action and are not in any way offended.

 

cheers.

Unicorn.

    • Date : 01st June 2020. Events to Look Out for This Week.Geopolitics are back in the picture giving the markets pause and adding another layer of uncertainty to a shaky global outlook. However other than US-China tension, next week the global data dockets are heavy and results are likely to underscore the cratering in global economies this quarter. The calendar includes the US Jobs Report and Monetary policy meeting from RBA, BOC and ECB.Monday – 01 June 2020 Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI is expected to slightly improve to 49.6 from 49.4 in May. ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to slip to 40.0 in May from 41.5 in April, compared to a recession-low of 34.5 in December of 2008. Tuesday – 02 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision & Statement (RBA, GMT 04:30) – The RBA meet and are unlikely to move rates below historic lows at 0.25%, as RBA Gov. Lowe is his recent statement repeated that negative interest rates extraordinarily unlikely. RBA will maintain its expansionary monetary policies until progress is made towards full employment and we are confident on inflation . Wednesday – 03 June 2020   Gross Domestic Product (AUD, GMT 01:30) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q1’s GDP is expected to slow down at 0.3% q/q and 1.9% y/y. Unemployment data (EUR, GMT 07:55-09:00) – The German unemployment rate in May is expected to have increased to 6.2% from 5.8%, while unemployment change is expected to have declined to 194K from April’s 373K. Meanwhile, Eurozone’s April unemployment rate should rise to 7.7% from 7.4% last month. ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – Lasts month, ADP report revealed a -20,236k April drop that undershot the -19,520k private payroll decline by -716k. For May a -9,000k drop is seen, since nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough. ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to rise to 46.0 from 41.8 in April. Most producer sentiment reports should show May rebounds after huge April declines due to mandatory closures, on top of the demand hit initially associated with the pandemic, and the oil price plunge with the OPEC price war, as re-openings are underway in most states. The April drop in the ISM survey was much smaller than the declines seen in other measures, however, and this is why we expect a further drop in May for that measure. Interest Rate Decision and Monetary Policy Statement (CAD, GMT 14:00) – On April 15, the Bank held rates steady at 0.25%, matching widespread expectations. In the next policy statement, the BoC is expected to leave rates unchanged, the Bank of Canada Governor Poloz said is his last interview that negative rates are needed only in extreme conditions. Thursday – 04 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45 & 12:30) – Given that Lagarde buried any hope of a “mild” recession, the stage seems set for an extension of the PEPP program in size and duration at next week’s council meeting with an end date next year giving the economy more time to recover and EU aid programs to come into effect. Given that the ECB is no longer putting much hope in a quick recovery it is already clear that with the current time frame until the end of December that would risk a sharp widening of spreads in the second half of the year, when there is also the risk of a second wave of Covid-19 infections. Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims contracted last week by -323k to 2,123k in the week ended May 23 after tumbling -241k to 2,446k previously. Claims have been declining since surging to 6,867k in the March 27 week. Friday – 05 June 2020   Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 12:30) – A -2,200k May nonfarm payroll drop is anticipated, following a -20,527 April collapse, and a -701k drop in March. The jobless rate should rise to 17.5% from 14.7% from April, versus 4.4% in March. Nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough just after the April BLS survey week, but the initial and continuing claims data suggest a weaker labor market in mid-May than mid-April. Average hourly earnings are assumed to fall -1.0% with a partial unwind of the April distortion from layoffs being concentrated in low-wage categories. This would translate to a drop in the y/y gain to 6.6% from 7.9%. Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada employment plunged -1993.8k in April, nearly doubling the -1010.7k tumble in March to leave a massive and rapid reversal in the labour market as firms cut jobs as most of the economy ceased to function amid the stay at home orders the began around the middle of March. For May employment should revealed a 4,000k drop in jobs, doubling again last months number. B]Always trade with strict risk management.
