The power of the volatility indicator as forex markets explode into life!

Once again it is the power of the volatility indicator which is revealed as the forex markets exploded into life ahead of the London open, with the Japanese Yen and the Swiss Franc selling off sharply, with equally strong buying of the commodity currencies. With the volatility indicator signalling a move outside the average true range, and with indices also spiking them reversing, a strong reversal then took place as expected. https://youtu.be/_9OzIzwDDdU...

A great day for trading stocks and indices – & the importance of floating supply

A great day for trading stocks and indices – & the importance of floating supply

Choosing the best stocks for day trading can be tricky and if you choose the wrong ones, it can be tough make money as a day trader. In this session, we cover some of the basics of stock selection for day trading and also highlight one of the key issues which is understanding floating supply. Floating supply is one of the most important factors to consider for the simple reason if the floating supply is small, then volatility is likely to be high as the price can be manipulated by the market makers very easily, or indeed a single large order. The opposite is where floating supply is large and in this case volatility will be reduced as these stocks are harder to corner for the market makers and insiders. This was also a great trading day with the opportunity to make money in all markets, with the ES index falling strongly along with the sister indices of the YM and NQ emini,...

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...

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...
