Stock analysis using the volume point of control & accumulation & distribution indicators

Stock analysis using the volume point of control & accumulation & distribution indicators

In this video, David & I cover using the Quantumtrading support & resistance indicators for stocks such as Fate Therapeutics, Apple & Tesla. The indicators in question are the volume point of control which marks out key levels in terms of volume and the price-based accumulation and distribution indicator. This indicator is unique in that once the indicator marks a level it will thicken each time that level is tested and holds. What this does for the trader and investor is give a clear visual picture of the relative strength of any significant level. And when the accumulation & distribution combines with the volume point of control we know the level is of supreme importance as we can see on the monthly chart for FATE. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEQL_K1gCnQ Charts courtesy of Ninjatrader.

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...

How to use the volume point of control (VPOC) as support & resistance

How to use the volume point of control (VPOC) as support & resistance

Regardless of whether you are a trader or investor having those key support & resistance lines and zones on your chart is vital and in this video, we explain how we can utilize the volume point of control (vpoc) to help us define these key regions of the chart. The vpoc itself looks at price action and volume over time and creates not only what we call 'the fulcrum' of the chart (price action & volume over time = most important congestion phase) but also those all-important low and high volume node regions.  And when price is trading at the vpoc traders and investors have to be patient and wait for a breakaway supported by good volume. https://youtu.be/CoMx_R43aFw...
