In a mean-reverting instrument, price will gravitate toward the median of the channel that is created by traders as they move away from that median, i.e., the "value area", the level or zone where the bulk of trades take place within a narrow range of prices.

How do you qualify instrument as mean-reverting? Do you rely on common knowledge, statistics, your discretionary assessment?

Keep up the good work!

About the SLA/AMT.

I didn't realize that I could upload it here (the max at ET is 2megs).

So, here it is:



I'm also uploading the sections in Wyckoff's course on "The Law of Supply and Demand" and "Judging the Market By Its Own Action" as these are critical to understanding and implementing the SLA/AMT.

And, finally, I'm uploading Section 7 of Wyckoff's course in which he analyzes a year in the life of the stock market, almost day by day, for those who get hooked on this PA stuff and would like additional practice with the guy who pretty much invented the approach.

We cross-posted, and I just uploaded the SLA/AMT pdf.

In a nutshell, the prices in a mean-reverting instrument cluster around a mean (actually, a median, but "mean-reverting" has become the common usage, so . . .), all of this having to do with the auction market and how demand and supply interact to reach "equilibrium", or a generally agreed-upon price. I'll post the weekly trend chart from two weeks ago as an illustration.

If you read the pdf, particularly Appendix E, that should explain the basics.

Well that's good to know. The going is rough for PA traders on other sites.

There is lot of effort here on futures.io (formerly BMT) to keep a constructive and positive environment.

@DbPhoenix - it might be worth switching over to futures.io (formerly BMT) for a while to avoid the trolls... I read the thread before Magna cleared things up. It was deplorable.

I wouldn't be posting there at all if it weren't for that stupid thread. But even though the "professionals" don't understand it (which says plenty right there), people do benefit from it; they're just afraid to post anything about it, which is unfathomable. I do understand that these interminable dogfights lead to page views and clicks, but, if that's the primary goal, why moderate at all?

Oh, well At least the SLA is done, and it will be around far longer than I will.

I realize that most of those who view these posts are doing so out of curiosity, but I may as well follow the above trade until it's done.

Note how price tests and bounces off the median of the range formed after the market re-opened.
