Trading a breakout from congestion using volume price analysis

Trading a breakout from congestion using volume price analysis

A nice congestion phase building on the 5m chart for the GBP/JPY and one which introduces several elements of volume price analysis. First we have support and resistance here we see a strong region of resistance building with the red dashed line. This is on the accumulation and distribution indicator which displays graphically the strength of such regions. In other words the thicker the line, the stronger the region, so a strong ceiling of resistance building at 129.75. In addition we are also trading at the volume point of control at 129.52. This is the fulcrum of the market at present with no bullish or bearish bias. In other words the market is in price agreement where we have the heaviest concentration of volume.

US index futures reacted to more news from the Trump Twitter handle which created the price action we have seen so many times before. A rapid move in one direction followed by an equally dramatic move in the opposite direction not long after. It's what we call the 'souffle' effect for this reason, and is one to watch out for in all markets as it offers terrific two way price action in a relatively short space of time.

Only one currency in focus in the London forex session!

There was only one currency in focus this morning as the country goes to the polls today on one of the tightest general elections we have seen for decades.

The volatility indicator was much in evidence as was the volume point of control across the various timeframes, and coupled with the price based support and resistance indicator and accumulation and distribution indicators, defined clear levels of support and resistance. https://youtu.be/6nWciiv78bM...
