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

To me, the main difference between Tom Williams and Wyckoff is that Tom Williams is more of a bar by bar analysis, or to say bar pattern's type. On the contrary Wyckoff elaborate on period "phases" consisting of multi bar patterns ( see Wyckoff schematic ).

Taking a look at Wyckoff courses, his methodology is not simply about volume pattern analysis, it consists of multiple type of analysis like trendlines, support resistance, relative strenght ... That TW do not talk much about...

From my experience Wyckoff is much more of a complete methodology than VSA but VSA elaborate well into bar/volume relationship ..

Does anyone have experience changing the VSA indicator settings for thinkorswim?

I use daily, hourly and 5 minute charts with VSA on the daily and hourly.

Are there values that you feel work better on the daily and others that
are more appropriate for the hourly?

Thanks to all of the coders here!

Hi,
This is actually directed at Goldstandard. I am wondering if those Tom Williams video's are still up for offer?

Interesting comparison. What educational sources have you found useful in learning these methods? Also, do you think Wyckoff and VSA methods can be useful forex even though there are no market makers to manipulate the market?

I'm still learning Wyckoff and VSA and I've used the VSA indicators on both TOS and Amibroker; however, it may be that I'm still learning, but there seems to be a lot of signals to decipher.

Thanks SJ. I switched to trading predominately off successful supply and demand tests.
I use the volume profiles in ToS for identification

I use the Point of Control as a validation level although I have used it
for breakout plays. This is a good area to watch the tape
for direction.

Yes, I've recently saw some training videos on the Market Profile and it does seems to be related to supply & demand. I may not use it as a primary trading tool, but if you know of some more informational sources about it, please let me know. It could provide an additional way to confirm a trading postion.
