Using the tick and time charts to scalp Emini futures

After the previous day's FED meeting, US indices came off their highs with sentiment shifting from risk on to risk off, with the futures moving lower intraday. The lack of momentum was clearly shown on the tick charts for the ES emini using the Quantum Tickspeedometer indicator. https://youtu.be/45RIHPiomP8...

A terrific day of emini trading using tick and time charts

A terrific day of emini trading using tick and time charts

This was one of those days we call a red letter day, with the ES emini, the YM emini and the NQ emini all delivering wonderful trading oppportunities for the scalping intraday index trader using the Quantum Trading tools and indicators. Here we used a blend of time based and not time based charts, with the renko and the tick charts revealing momentum, and then blended with the time based charts for applying volume price analysis. Here the Tickspeedometer is the go to indicator, delivering the real time optimal tick speeds for our tick charts, and with the renko optimiser also offering the same, a power combination of non time based charts to support our time based analysis. The best of both. https://youtu.be/T54yYrbtERg...

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...

Day trading the ES emini on tick charts and tickspeedometer delivers solid profits

Day trading the ES emini on tick charts and tickspeedometer delivers solid profits

An interesting session for US indices where despite the relatively narrow price action, the tick charts delivered some solid trading profits for intraday scalping traders. The focus in this session was on the ES emini, the most heavily traded index, and using tick charts in combination with the Ninjatrader Tickspeedometer indicator. This approach delivered some solid results despite the fact markets were waiting for FED chair Powell to deliver a speech to the Economic Club of Washington DC, with a question and answer session to follow. It was no surprise to see markets trading in a relatively tight range, but nonetheless delivering for the emini scalping trader. https://youtu.be/5D7MM3Ffik8...

US mid-term elections dominate price action in all markets

US mid-term elections dominate price action in all markets

Waiting for the US mid term elections was reflected in the markets this afternoon, and following an initial move higher, that was it for the rest of the session as all three indices rotated around the VPOC on the fast timeframe charts and lacking both direction and participation. The price action was no great surprise given the political landscape along with the FED decision due on Thursday. But as always on such days, it reminds us we have to be patient and wait for the trading opportunities to arrive and not force them, where none exist which was the case for index traders today. This general lack of momentum was also reflected in related markets with the US dollar and gold both trading in narrow ranges. The terrific price action of October, a nightmare for investors, but joyous for traders, now seems to be a dim and distant memory as we wait for the Santa Claus rally to appear on the...

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...
