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...

Another day when the volatility indicator is in evidence!

An exciting afternoon on the US markets, as Donald Trump responds to Draghi's ECB decision and statement with volatile price action ensuing across the markets from commodities to forex and indices. Excellent two way price action, but not for the nervous trader! https://youtu.be/NY2AWFJvdsM...

A masterclass in trading forex using the Quantum Trading indicators and volume price analysis

A masterclass in trading forex using the Quantum Trading indicators and volume price analysis

This morning's forex trading session was a masterclass in trading, combining every aspect in one powerful lesson. The GBP/JPY provided a perfect example, starting with the base methodology of volume price analysis as the move higher came to a temporary halt in the faster timeframes and duly reflected on across the currency dashboard in terms of the currency strength indicator, the currency matrix, the currency array and finally the currency heatmap. Multiple timeframes are a key aspect coupled with support and resistance, the volume point of control and of course related markets in terms of risk sentiment. The currency indices too also play a pivotal role in identifying the intraday moves of the three major currencies of the US dollar, the Japanese yen and the euro in all timeframes. https://youtu.be/HRgkvTJjJRY...

Choose your currency pair with care!

Choose your currency pair with care!

https://youtu.be/xTPs_2Ws7aQ In this video we highlight the currency strength indicator and the currency array indicator for NinjaTrader, and the importance of understanding universal flow in the market. Here we see strong buying for the British pound and the euro which is reflected in the charts, but is sentiment for the two currencies universal across the complex, and this is where the currency array indicator steps in to help. In the ranking ladder to for the currency array we can see sentiment for the GBP is universal with strong buying in all the pairs. For the euro this is not the case and highlighting the key point, which is to choose your currency pairs with care. Trading against the universal market sentiment is fine, as long as are aware that this is indeed the case. Most forex traders are not, and so assume the market is universally bullish or bearish on the currency which is often not the case at all!!...

Using non time based charts to trade US indices at the open

Using non time based charts to trade US indices at the open

https://youtu.be/bsKIHlKcRjo In this session with Anna and David of Quantum trading, they focus here on the US markets and in particular the US indices using Quantum Trading indicators and tools for NinjaTrader. Using non time based charts is a popular approach for intraday traders, and in this session they focus on the NQ emini, the futures contract for the Nasdaq 100. The reason non time based charts are so popular is very simple, as they reveal market momentum, something you never see on a time based chart. As the market speeds up and slows down, so this is revealed graphically on the chart itself. The two charting approaches used here are using renko and tick. Quantum Trading has developed a unique variant of the standard renko indicator and called the renko optimiser, which does exactly what it says. Selecting the optimal brick size is often just a guess, but not with this indicator which delivers the correct renko brick size for all...

Forget the euro, look at the British pound!

In all the brouhaha about Greece and the euro it's easy to forget what else is going on in the forex market. Sometimes I feel Greece is taking up too much space in traders' heads at the expense of other markets and currencies. And for a perfect example of what I mean look no further than the continued strength in GBP which has seen some great trends in GBP/NZD & GBP/CAD & I'm still waiting for the GBP/JPY to turn lower, but only once we see a major reversal in risk sentiment. On both charts the NinjaTrader trend monitor has remained firmly bullish with only a minor transition on the GBP/CAD reflecting the recent pause in the longer term trend. However, moving to the NinjaTrader currency strength indicator to the left of the chart, here we can see that the British Pound, the yellow line, is now moving ever deeper into the oversold region on the daily timeframe, so this trend...

RBNZ drives volatility into the New Zealand dollar overnight!

The RBNZ certainly livened things up overnight - I don't remember seeing quite so many gaps or such strong moves delivered by one currency! NZD is pretty illiquid at the best of times, so any volatility will magnify any moves. With the NZD it's a case of the central bank making it very clear further rate cuts are on their way & with the US finding some bullish sentiment this morning - NZD/USD looks set for a further fall. So far this morning the pair has managed to find some support at the 0.70 region, but a quick look at the weekly and monthly chart reveals the extent of this bearish sentiment. with the month chart in particular, where the price is now at the 200 ma. The VPOC ( volume point of control) is now well above the current price action and adding further weight to the bearish sentiment. In addition, with several LVN (low volume nodes) we are likely to...
