London forex session delivers great trading & volume price analysis lessons

A terrific trading session which once again had so many lessons for traders in all timeframes, emphasizing the power of volume price analysis and supported by the Quantum Trading tools and indicators. As so often happens at the session crossover periods, reversals take centre stage as the market makers move in to trap traders into weak positions. Putting Brexit to one side, the focus here was on the commodity currencies and in particular the cross-currency pairs of the euro, the Aussie dollar, and the Canadian dollar. The forex market is one of mean reversion and none more so at these times, when the market makers are at their most active. For the EUR/AUD the solid bearish trends intraday were duly reversed, but as always it's a question of identifying whether this is a change from a primary bearish to a primary bullish trend, or simply from a primary bearish to a secondary pullback or reversal before the primary is re-established once again....

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,...

The power of using multiple timeframes

The power of using multiple timeframes

Using multiple timeframes is one of the keys to trading success and in this morning's forex session we explain why, and using several of the GBP pairs. The reasons are many. First, using this approach reveals how price action in one timeframe, can reveal so much in another. Overlaying two candles is easy, but doing this with several is hard and almost impossible to do quickly. The Quantum Trading indicators for MT5 and NinjaTrader then help, with different signals in different timeframes. One may be signaling a change in trend which is developing, or perhaps a volatility signal is triggered. Finally, the price action itself reveals areas of support and resistance, of deep concentrations of volume which are not apparent on the timeframe of choice. All of these then provide the pieces of the jigsaw, which answer the simple question 'where is the market heading next?' And all underpinned of course by volume price analysis, which again offers powerful insights when applied...

Oil delivers….again, and again, and again….

Oil delivers….again, and again, and again….

It's often hard to find trading opportunities which just deliver, and keep delivering, but for oil this has been the case over the last few weeks, and this was no different yesterday, with the WTI futures as the price of oil fell once more, and offering straightforward, low risk, high return trading opportunities in all time frames. The primary decision trading decision here is the number of contract to trade, with the time and non time based charts providing those key insights to maximize returns. And here, it really is a case of make hay while the sun shines. These fantastic trading opportunities don't come along every day, and until OPEC moves and potentially introduces supply cuts, this bearish momentum looks set to continue, but as always it will be volume which reveals any turn points or primary reversals in due course. So enjoy the ride lower! https://youtu.be/YRj70Ia-HEo...

Spoilt for choice in the fx session – which pair to choose!!

Spoilt for choice in the fx session – which pair to choose!!

A great forex session and one where we were truly spoiled for choice, with the US dollar leading the way as safe haven flows saw the currency of first reserve rise strongly as European markets opened. This was countered with equally strong selling in several different currencies including the Australian dollar, the euro and the pound and clearly signaled on the currency strength indicator. The move in the euro was triggered as a result of problems once more in the Italian banking system, an issue which like Greece, has never been resolved, and which is now rising once again to the surface. But in this session we focused on one of these, the Aussie dollar which delivered a wonderful trend lower, and confirmed with all the associated indicators of the currency heatmap, the currency array and the currency matrix, with safe haven flows driving the US dollar, and equally strong bearish flows driving the Aussie, and combining in wonderful trading opportunity to...

Nice move in the euro along with the pound in the London session

Nice move in the euro along with the pound in the London session

https://youtu.be/QQvzkV2brBE Another great session this morning with David and myself as we showcase the Quantum Trading tools and indicators through the European open and into the London session, and the two currencies we focused on here were the British pound and the euro. As you would expect these are the currencies that take centre stage as European markets open, and we were not disappointed with the euro finding some positive sentiment and sending it firmly higher against the US dollar which was equally bearish on the faster timeframes, and so developing a nice trend. And of course this was clearly in evidence on the currency strength indicator on both the MT5 platform and the NinjaTrader platform. One of the key issues when trading any pair is to understand whether the sentiment for the currency is universal across the currency complex, and here the currency matrix and the currency array step in to help and display this instantly and in all timeframes. This...

Excellent trades in the majors during the London FX session

Excellent trades in the majors during the London FX session

https://youtu.be/MIwsXPvTWJo Another excellent forex trading session for the European and London open with the pound and the euro in focus as the Far East and Asia session comes to a close. With the US dollar selling off this helped to propel many of the major currency pairs, and with strong euro buying on the faster timeframes, the euro dollar was certainly one which delivered, with the British pound also following suit and helped higher with the Barnier bounce. Once again the currency strength indicator highlights the pairs to consider with the euro rising strongly and counterbalanced with an equally strong move lower for the US dollar, with the British pound moving in to overbought on the faster timeframes, with the currency array then The key as always is in using multiple timeframes and blending time and non time based charts to deliver all the key pieces of the jigsaw. As always some great volume price analysis lessons in this session with the...

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...
