Wow – what a day!!

An extraordinary day for intraday traders as risk-off sentiment took hold, driving the markets with momentum, and creating a perfect storm. For scalping and intraday traders the biggest problem was in deciding which instruments and markets to trade with a myriad of opportunities in all timeframes. As always volume price analysis provided all the signals supported by the Quantum Trading tools and indicators. https://youtu.be/70Rv2WGTF80...

Renko delivers on gbp/aud on a quiet day

Renko delivers on gbp/aud on a quiet day

There are many advantages to using a Renko chart one of which is it can help to deliver good trading opportunities even in difficult, tight range markets. One example is from the gbp/aud on a quiet day yet when set at a fixed value of 2 pips per brick managed to produce over 80 pips. The version of the Renko shown here is for MT5 and allows traders to select either a fixed value (as we have on the chart) or use the ATR function that is built into the indicator. And this chart also includes the Quantum trends and trend monitor which can help with entries and exits as well as holding a trend....

How to trade the futures markets using the Quantum Trading indicators

How to trade the futures markets using the Quantum Trading indicators

Another excellent session as the US markets get underway with risk on returning with the primary indices all climbing and driven by a currency pact between the US and China. Focus on the session was on the YM emini, with the Yen index falling strongly and reflecting this sentiment. The yen was sold strongly on the currency strength indicator, the Yen index, and on the currency future of the 6J JPY/USD all reinforcing the picture and offering a low risk trading opportunity. https://youtu.be/xbjxKwPsJeA...

Using the tick charts and renko charts to day trade indices on NinjaTrader

Using the tick charts and renko charts to day trade indices on NinjaTrader

A very typical day trading the indices as we focus on the YM Emini index. Bearish price action in the early part of the session was replaced later in the day with a nice reversal off a deep hammer candle. Both tick charts and renko charts reveal momentum as they are non-time based, and so give a clear view on participation and momentum which was lacking in this session. Scalping these markets requires speed and timing, and choosing levels of where to enter and likely return. https://youtu.be/HM_-0pstBC8...

The volume point of control confirmed it all!

The volume point of control confirmed it all!

Another session for day trading the US indices where patience and more patience was required, but as always it’s volume spread analysis coupled with the Quantum Trading tools and indicators which helps to keep us safe and stop us from jumping in and then regretting this decision. The volatility indicator was once again much in evidence as indeed was the accumulation and distribution indicator for NinjaTrader, helping to define those key levels of price support and resistance which are so important. The volume point of control was also much in evidence with the primary US indices of the ES, the YM, and the NQ all rotating around key levels as price agreement was reached in the faster timeframes. The tick charts too also confirmed this lack of interest and participation with the tickspeedometer indicator delivering very clear messages of danger ahead as the red warning signals flashed loud and clear. The messages were clear – wait and be patient. The trades...

A terrific ES emini day for traders – which just keeps giving!

A terrific ES emini day for traders – which just keeps giving!

A terrific session today for trading US markets, and in particular the indices, with the ES, the NQ and YM leading the way. Following an early recovery, bearish sentiment picked up as the session developed with the ES E-mini index delivering some easy points using the renko indicator, the tick charts and the time based charts as a strong reversal took hold across all three. This was one of the days when trading such moves is low risk and high reward with volume price analysis leading the way and supported by the Quantum tools and indicators. Just a great session with some straightforward low risk high reward trading opportunities. So a terrific session for index traders which continued to deliver after the end of the webinar. https://youtu.be/731gk9R9nnw...
