interpreting cumulative delta

Although I use CD successfully in my trading I sometimes get confused interpreting the meaning of CD.
So I wanted to write down my view on CD and ask your meaning about it.


In theory there are five scenarios that van happen:

1. Price makes higher highs and CD also makes higher highs.

My interpretation: Traders want to buy the market, but sellers are reluctant to sell, so the buyers bid up the market

2. Price makes higher highs but CD falls

My interpretation: Traders that have bought previously are selling off. There are however still enough buyers who are willing to buy at these levels. Price is possibly topping out.

3. Price makes lower lows and CD also makes lower lows.

My interpretation: Traders want to sell the market, but buyers are reluctant to buy, so the sellers move the market down.

4. Price makes lower lows but CD goes up

My interpretation: Traders that have sold previously are buying back. There are however still enough sellers who are willing to sell at these levels. Price is possibly bottoming out.

5. Price chops and CD also chops.

My interpretation: Price found an equilibrium where both buyers and sellers are happy to buy and sell.

Use the existing thread:

I am closing this one to prevent a split topic.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
