How useful is the "RealStats_SharkyPkg" (which is Sharky's version of the "jtRealStats" indy) to read Price Action and volume ? Although I've always had it as part of Sharky's setup on my chart, I've just been closely studying it since morning (GMT + 1) today; and it looks interesting.

Lolu,

I like this indicator too. It will be a part of my system.

I decided I needed to improve its display for easier viewing.

I am creating my own version of this indicator. (jtRealStats_RJay)

I will post a picture for all to see.

However, it will only be available for download in the VIP forum.

You don't need anything proprietary to read price action.

You don't need any indicators to read price action.

Price either moves up or down. That's it. That's all the price action there is.

Price is moving up and hits a line, go long.

Price is moving down and hits a line, go short.

That is all the price action there is.

TRADING IS SIMPLE.

DO NOT BE FOOLED.

TRO,

I am studying volume to help me understand the markets!!!

Volume is interesting to me becouse it shows me what everyone else is doing.

Since the majority of them are wrong most of the time, I learn from their mistakes.

I am also interested in your trading style??? Will you share in more detail???

I try to keep an open mind, like most members here.

First, there is nothing to understand other than price goes up and down. As a trader, your only "job" is to make money. Why something happens is irrelevant. What is important is that you take appropriate action based on what is happening.

There are no more "details". If price is going up, I buy. Either I make a profit or my stop loss is hit. It is that simple.

Hi mkw111

At the ATW they do use VSA. Andy uses it on a 1min chart and basically watches for
3 things - upthrust bars, down thrust bars and also the low volume test. I attended a
free 30 day trial period with them and enjoyed it ( incase anyone wonders: No I am not from the ATW .....)

Take care

Mick

Yeah, ATW has VSA as one of the trading strategies they offer. You can sign-on on a free Trial Trading room session. I had a 30-trial with them but I could not afford the fee to purchase the unlimited Trading room, indicators and other systems they offer.

ATW seems to have good training setups/systems that teach how to be a trader, NOT how to use systems.

TRO,

I like your style, but to say it is simple, not sure I'll go with that one.
If it were simple everyone would be doing it, and this would be the only
profession in the world. What I will give you is that everyone is searching
for the Holy Grail (ie Get Rich Quick Scheme) and that is not the answer.

I have recently started paying more attention to volume, but I can say,
I have traded without it and have been OK.

What I do see with Volume is that it increases the odds in my favor.

I rely heavily on the following things to serve as guide posts in determining Market Direction: Trend lines, S & R, Candles, Patterns, Fibs, Pivots, Multiple Time Frames and Gaps.

Would you share with us what you use to Read Price Action?

Thanks for taking the time to participate in this thread.
