The volume point of control on the XLE back in focus

The volume point of control on the XLE back in focus

An update on the monthly chart for the XLE energy EFT as the sector appears to fall out of favor with the monthly chart looking to post a bearish engulfing candle. However, we were already aware the price action in the XLE was likely to come to a pause and probable reversal with the failure to take out the volume band of the volume point of control (vpoc). As one of our most powerful indicators, the vpoc not only gives us the structure of the chart in terms of whether the price action is in trend or congestion but also gives us key volume-based support & resistance levels and zones.  In addition, last month's candle also triggered our volatility indicator so a retrace into the spread of the candle was highly likely, particularly when accompanied by low volume. The vpoc itself (yellow hatched line) marks the area on the chart which could be described as being 'fair value' where traders...

QQQ pauses ahead of this week’s CPI releases

QQQ pauses ahead of this week’s CPI releases

The accumulation & distribution indicator combined with the volume point of control highlight perfectly what is likely to happen on the QQQ which is the ETF for the Nasdaq 100 and one of the most liquid instruments in the market with an average daily volume of over 75m so plenty of liquidity. However, given the price action looks to be congesting in the accumulation & distribution channel shown on the weekly chart it's no surprise that volumes are about half the usual average. However, this is normal as volume always falls whenever a chart is in congestion/consolidation. The reason for this new phase of price action is in many ways not surprising given the recent volatility as the index (and markets take a breather) but we can expect volatility to pick up towards the end of the week with the CPI releases and next week, of course, we have the FOMC which is when the FED is expected to raise...

Video Analysis of PLUG Power

Video Analysis of PLUG Power

My video analysis of PLUG Power a major player in green hydrogen. The company has been around since 1999 and has a very interesting backstory. More recently it was the subject of a dramatic 'pump & dump' with the stock rising to an ATH of $76 before falling back to $12. A recent large order for an electrolyzer has seen the stock on the move. However, traders and investors who use volume price analysis will have seen the buying come before this positive news was announced, one reason PLUG is our vpa chart of the week. https://youtu.be/livYI30ow-4 By Anna Coulling Charts courtesy of Ninjatrader  ...

Understanding how to use the volume point of control

The recent price action on PLUG Power is a great example of how the volume point of control along with volume can help to validate a breakaway trade.
