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...

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...

Now that’s what I call a reversal!!

Now that’s what I call a reversal!!

A terrific session on the US markets as the plunge in equities during the morning, was reversed in the afternoon with an equally strong recovery, with the three sister indices all closing on the day with an extreme wick to the lower body and a close near the high of the session. A fantastic trading day and one with many VPA lessons, not least the importance of understanding the relational aspects of market behaviour of bonds and currencies all of which sent clear signals of this change in sentiment. https://youtu.be/sp76-cYO6lU...

When volume really does reveal the truth behind the price action

When volume really does reveal the truth behind the price action

https://youtu.be/aHAf6LAAgkE An excellent trading session for US indices, commodities and stocks following the extreme moves of last week and at times such as this, volume price analysis becomes ever more powerful in helping to reveal the truth behind the price action. What was interesting here was the volume associated with the wide spread down candle which was the precursor to extreme volatility which followed and which is likely to continue for the next few days as markets calm after the storm. Whilst the volume associated with the candle was high, as we explained in the session, this appears to be an anomaly and certainly when compared to volume on the following day which was extreme, and highlighted this anomaly further. So what are we to make of this, and all was explained in the session as we focused on the YM emini daily chart along with other US indices. And for intraday index traders, we picked up a great move in the...

A wonderful day for reversal traders in US markets

A wonderful day for reversal traders in US markets

A real game of two halves today in the US day trading session with the risk off sentiment expressed in the first half, duly replaced with a return to risk on, as the major US indices and exchanges reversed all the losses of the first part of the session to close near or above the opening price. In this session we focused on the YM emini index with some classical price action, both intraday and on the daily chart itself. Volume price analysis as always is the starting point, and with last week's NFP still fresh in the mind, the prospect of rising interest rates had taken their toll on the markets. However, on both the 4th and 5th of October, whilst the indices fell during the session, they also recovered off the lows and more importantly on high volume, sending a clear signal that the big operators were buying and absorbing the selling pressure. Indeed this was the pattern we...

Day trading gold and other commodities in the US session

Day trading gold and other commodities in the US session

https://youtu.be/64-8qg5I2EM In this session Anna and David focus on day trading commodities in the US session and in particular gold which delivered some solid moves for speculative intraday traders and supported by the Quantum Trading tools and indicators. Anna starts the session looking at gold on the MT5 platform which is a great place to start with both renko and time based charts. Then David takes over on NinjaTrader, adding tick charts as a further blended option and using the Tickspeedometer indicator to deliver the precise tick speed setting for the charts. The renko optimiser then provides an additional view on the price action and yet another non time based chart to help with entry and exit points. Using renko charts, tick charts and time based charts together, provides a three dimensional view of the price action giving day traders a unique view with all the pieces of the puzzle helping to provide a unified picture for clear and logical decision making....
