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...

Index scalping using 15 second charts on NinjaTrader

A terrific index trading session yesterday using the Quantum Trading tools and indicators for NinjaTrader, and despite the price action being narrow on the day, moving to the ultra fast seconds charts opened up the trading options.

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...

The volume point of control takes centre stage on the US indices!

The volume point of control takes centre stage on the US indices!

In the US session for day trading the index futures, once again it was patience that was required in abundance as we waited for the inevitable breakaway which duly arrived later in the day. The primary indicator in this session was the volume point of control which as always gives a visual representation of the region of price agreement, with no bias in sentiment. This is the fulcrum of price action and works in all timeframes, denoting the heaviest concentration of volume on the price chart, combining as it does volume, price and time. Any move away from the volume point of control is then confirmed with the linear price volume relationship as Wyckoffian principles then apply and confirm any subsequent move as genuine or false. The volume point of control on the NinjaTrader platform works in all timeframes and for all markets, and sits at the point at which volume is at an extreme. The associated volume histogram then highlights high...
