[VSA] Volume Spread Analysis Part II

I would like to start a fresh VSA thread due to the increasing length of the original thread. Please use this as a continuation of the first thread located here. PP has also removed the charts from his original thread (EDIT: they have since been re-posted). However, those that have been following the VSA thread should have gained knowledge tremendously. Hopefully we can make this thread as successful as the first one.

Here we go. The brilliant game of psychology:

James,

Thanks for starting this.

By your above statement, I assume you mean a restore from backup is not possible.

Regards,
Bert

Re: [VSA] Volume Spread Analysis Part II

Check out attached chart. In this new (and improved?) second thread on VSA, I'd like to advocate that we spend a little time each weekend and analyze the major charts for the following week---maybe give us all a heads up. Here's my lame contribution for this week--looks like we have a successful test (low volume down bar, attempting but failing to go down to area of previous supply). This would suggest that maybe the January lows will hold and we'll get an up-week next week. Anybody care to shoot me down? Please feel free.

See attached charts. Here are a few of PP's charts, complete with my notations. I guess geniuses get temperamental sometimes.

more charts from PP, snagged from the original thread. I found them so useful I saved them. Hope others find them as elucidating.

Re: [VSA] Volume Spread Analysis Part II

Yet more charts of PP's. Pity that he deleted all his hard work. Why on earth would someone go to all that effort...oh never mind. Here are a few more of his best charts, with a few notations by moi.

You're most welcome, Monsieur Ed. I REALLY wish we had a standard for chart-posting on this forum, whereby the poster (the person who is doing the posting) should:

1) include in the chart the contract name and type of chart (time, tick, or volume), as well as the values for the X and Y axes. You'd be surprised how many people leave those out...makes it near impossible to reproduce the chart with your own software and indicators.

NOTE: the real value of chart-posting comes when the viewer can reproduce the poster's chart with their (the viewer's) own indicators, to compare how they would analyze the chart with their own system--then compare their analysis with what the poster is saying to see if the poster really has a good idea, or a valid spin on the chart in question.

2) vertical lines from the price to the volume. This is especially essential in VSA charts. It helps the viewer see which bar the poster was referring to when they say such and such bar represents no demand, low volume test, a squat, etc. etc. etc. The vertical line is just a courtesy to the viewer.

NOTE: from my perspective, it's not so valuable just to post charts willy-nilly, throwing out to the public just anything you come across. Traders Lab is an educational site in which we help each other, and to that end, it is most useful to present your charts in a way that makes your message as easily understandable as possible.

3) Salient points in the chart should be marked on the chart if possible, not merely in the text. Again, this helps the viewer's eye grasp the poster's message quickly and clearly.
