The power of using multiple timeframes

The power of using multiple timeframes

Using multiple timeframes is one of the keys to trading success and in this morning's forex session we explain why, and using several of the GBP pairs. The reasons are many. First, using this approach reveals how price action in one timeframe, can reveal so much in another. Overlaying two candles is easy, but doing this with several is hard and almost impossible to do quickly. The Quantum Trading indicators for MT5 and NinjaTrader then help, with different signals in different timeframes. One may be signaling a change in trend which is developing, or perhaps a volatility signal is triggered. Finally, the price action itself reveals areas of support and resistance, of deep concentrations of volume which are not apparent on the timeframe of choice. All of these then provide the pieces of the jigsaw, which answer the simple question 'where is the market heading next?' And all underpinned of course by volume price analysis, which again offers powerful insights when applied...

Excellent trades in the majors during the London FX session

Excellent trades in the majors during the London FX session

https://youtu.be/MIwsXPvTWJo Another excellent forex trading session for the European and London open with the pound and the euro in focus as the Far East and Asia session comes to a close. With the US dollar selling off this helped to propel many of the major currency pairs, and with strong euro buying on the faster timeframes, the euro dollar was certainly one which delivered, with the British pound also following suit and helped higher with the Barnier bounce. Once again the currency strength indicator highlights the pairs to consider with the euro rising strongly and counterbalanced with an equally strong move lower for the US dollar, with the British pound moving in to overbought on the faster timeframes, with the currency array then The key as always is in using multiple timeframes and blending time and non time based charts to deliver all the key pieces of the jigsaw. As always some great volume price analysis lessons in this session with the...

Fundamentals for the GBP and the NZD/USD in focus in today’s London forex session

Fundamentals for the GBP and the NZD/USD in focus in today’s London forex session

https://youtu.be/uqUt3dRh0Xo In this morning's forex session with Anna and David of Quantum Trading, the session starts with Anna considering some of the fundamental drivers for the British pound, and of course Brexit. Over the next few months we are likely to see increasing volatility as the negotiations reach their conclusion. Whether agreement is reached or not, one thing you can be sure of is that each statement or announcement will send the pound sharply higher or lower across the complex. The New Zealand dollar was the pair in focus on the NinjaTrader platform bringing together many of the VPA lessons on the faster timeframes, with a decisive move lower signalled across the complex on the currency array and also on the currency strength indicator. One of the key issues for all traders managing the emotional stress created when a market pauses and reverses, in other words from the primary into the secondary trend, before establishing the initial trend once more. Here we...

Great VPA lessons on the Swiss franc

Great VPA lessons on the Swiss franc

https://youtu.be/yNvSwgRt-B4 This morning's session with Anna and David of Quantum Trading followed both the London and European open, with the Swiss franc the currency in focus and in particular for the Swiss yen. The timeframe here was the 30 minute with the longer term bullish trend picking up momentum once more with volume driving the pair higher, as shown on the annotated example. Throughout this phase of price action the trend monitor has helped to confirm the trend as the bearish trend weakened before picking up the bullish tone with a consequent rotation from bright red to bright blue. More importantly, even though the trend paused, the trend monitor with the trend line continued to flag bullish sentiment and helping to keep traders in the trend. This is one of the hardest things to do in trading as the emotional response is to close out and take any profit off the table resulting in a small profit, rather than a larger one...

Using the MT5 CSI currency strength indicator for scalping

Using the MT5 CSI currency strength indicator for scalping

https://youtu.be/d8pPI6vgIlM In this short video we explain the power of using the Quantum Trading currency strength indicator in multiple timeframes on the MT5 platform. And in this example we are using the MT5 platform once again which provides a much wider choice of timeframes using both the standard and custom options. Here we have the currency strength indicator applied to the 5 minute the 10 minute and the 15 minute timeframes, and focused on the EUR/CAD currency pair. Here we can see the trend is already underway and confirmed by the currency strength indicator with the euro currency falling strongly and the Canadian dollar rising just as strongly. This is where we see the strongest trends develop and the steepness of the line for each currency gives us clear and strong signals of the strength of the momentum for this pair,  with strength in one and weakness in the other, providing the prefect combination for a strong trend in the pair. The trend...

MT5 currency strength indicator in action

MT5 currency strength indicator in action

https://youtu.be/CVV1hQegI-Q In this video we show the Quantum Trading MT5 currency strength indicator in action, and focus in particular on the Japanese yen. This has been the ' go to' currency for the last few weeks as risk on and risk off sentiment has ebbed and flowed intraday, and reflected particularly in the yen cross pairs. In this example we have the 15 minute chart for the NZD/JPY with the currency strength indicator giving us all the clues and signals for this strong trend higher, with the New Zealand dollar being bought strongly, and the Japanese yen being sold equally strongly. The currency strength indicator is now available for both MT4 and MT5 platforms. You can find all the details by clicking the following link - Currency Strength Indicator MT4/MT5...

Kiwi roaring higher on the currency strength indicator

Good to see the Kiwi on a bit of tear (the white line on the currency strength indicator), but comes as no surprise given how oversold it was at the end of last week. We've been tracking the NZD/USD which has had a huge move higher overnight & broken through the VPOC on the daily chart and is now touching the 100 ma. As we mentioned in yesterday's webinar although December price action can often seem erratic, it can nonetheless offer some great trading opportunities. And those of you who come along regularly to our webinars will know David & I are great fans of both the Kiwi and Aussie! You can register for the trading webinars here. The hourly currency strength indicator is showing some great potential set ups. Have a great trading day....

Cable approaches key level

Cable continues to remain very weak for the time being, and is now approaching the tipping point of a potential deeper move once we have a strong close below the psychological 1.50 price point, which is clearly marked on the weekly chart by the support and resistance indicator. At the same time the VPOC (volume point of control) is also weighing heavily on the pair, and should the above level be breached then a further cluster of support awaits below in the 1.48 region. Any failure here will see cable move into a low volume node in the 1.46 region, last seen in March this year from which cable managed to stage a sustained recovery.  ...
