hawkeyetraders.com is another way of looking at VSA. Simple system, friendly people and good education. They recently have made very nice improvement to their system and will soon add Ninjatrader platform to their offering.

The improvement (New indicators) that i have mention before are now ready and for the NinjaTrader platform fan, the collection of indicators will be available before december 2010.

I guess the best way to make up a mind of your own is to go in the live trading room (It's free), and there you can see the tools in live action and ask for any inquiries you may have:

Entry based on VSA


Started to learn VSA just few weeks ago. My entries are based on VSA and Volume profile. This are just sim account trades, I'm not trading the real money now because I don't feel prepared for the real markets now.

Today trades based on VSA and VP. I'm taking a break from trading for few days. Going to read Master the Markets book again. Looking forward to read Enhancing Trader Performance. Psychology is my big weakness. As INTP personality type I tend to study things way too much ... which results in not actually doing them .

Found interesting video about watching average trade size.

I'm thinking it is very interesting idea so I created indicator based on GOM package. I do not have enough data recorded, so image is showing only last 20 days (sorry for that). Maybe somebody with more data can test it on longer time period.

thank you for the post ! the video is quite disappointing .... you cannot draw any conclusions from the average trade size !!!

You know what you know but you do not know what you do not know.
You do not see things how they are, you see things how you are.

Since there is a new Wyckoff thread started, perhaps some of you guys can educate me as to the difference between typical VSA and Wyckoff's method?

Mike

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.

Its my understanding that VSA was developed by Tom Williams based on the what Wyckoff discovered/learned about the markets from other traders such as Jesse Livermore and others. I think it was Williams that added the Volume, Spread Analysis to bars and prior bars based on what Wyckoff did. I think Wyckoff is interested in the logic of the market such as accumulation and distribution as well as behavior that can be seen in the structure of the market. I guess in some ways there is a relationship, but VSA can get very complicated with its many terms. Not sure if this was helpful or not.

Of course you cannot base your trading decisions on average trade size. But I think that analysis of trade flow is important. I don't like to dismiss any idea as worhtless without looking at it at least for a moment.

Tom williams adapted Wycoffs teachings into VSA . Mr. Williams then developed trade guider software which Ive tested out and if youre willing to commit substantial $$s can help you ID imbalances between volume and price , like a primitive delta analysis . "Master the markets " is an advertisement for trade guider but is full of good info about the relations between volume patterns , closing prices and price bar spreads . Better would be to start here and save your $3k -

https://futures.io/trading-journals/4183-three-set-ups.html

Jeffs (and the others) use of bar patterns and VOLUME are extremely effective in the hands of those willing to put in the time to master it . Add the ability to read support and resistance well and trading volume patterns off of them and youre ahead of the pack .
