I know it's earning season, that makes it a bit more complicated. but it seams we're at a pretty important area right now.

I totally agree. We're right up against the trendline. One last push (buying exhaustion) to try and break out.

I typically have commissions turned off in the options so that I can see how many ticks/points I got on each trade and I forget to turn it on for the summary. However, commissions haven't been that big of an issue now and my goal is to get another few ticks on ES so that commissions won't be an issue at all. Once I can do that and improve a few other things I'll start increasing my size gradually.

In this case commissions are 13%. that's acceptable but getting another tick on ES would reduce it even more. Eventually when trading size it'll be worth it to join the exchange (or lease it).

BTW commissions just shows what is entered in the instrument manager setup. It doesn't show real commissions so you can have $0 commission on real money if no commission was entered (by hand) or you can have commissions with sim if they are entered.

Yes all real money trades. I only sim on Euro as I'm working on adapting my method for the Euro, but lately I haven't even been doing that as ES/Crude keep me busy and I prefer to focus on what I'm doing.

1,2 or 3 blue candlesticks

Hello,

It's my first post

Many thanks for Volume Patterns indicators and for this futures.io (formerly BMT) forum.

I studied plenty of indicators but now I base my trading on price and volume and different resistance.

During the session on the YM (time frame is 2 minutes), when you note two or more of upper or lower shadow of candlesticks and if you have one two or three blue candlesticks the price moves in opposition of trend minimum 20 points

If the body break this invisible line the movement is not strong or touch stop.

Have you noticed it?

I don't know if it's available for other time frame and others futures maybe it will be to create a visual alert.

Bienvue chez futures.io (formerly BMT).

This is how I first started using volume, looking for HVC. One advantage to minute charts is it helps to see the wicks showing buying/selling tails. I think you're on the right track.

Yesterday wasn't a great day, I got $160 versus $700 the day before. I got out of an overnight hold on Stoxx just before the #s came out at 8:30 (NY Time). On crude I had a 5 tick loss. On ES it was really tough trading as the market didn't go very far without pulling back a lot but I managed to take 4 pts out.

I thought I had posted this before but it search is not showing it so here I go again. This is an indicator similar to CP's PaceOfTape (POT) indicator. Instead of trying to accumulate volume over a fixed period of time and then checking it against a threshold, it looks at the number of ticks going by in a unit time. More precisely, the time taken for a tick bar to complete.

The indicator is adaptive; it can deal with instruments with different trading volume or difference in trading volumes during different times of the day. It has an alert which triggers when a certain speed threshold is crossed over a short look-back period.

The indicator plots the reciprocal of the time taken by a bar normalized against the average time of bars over a look back period. So the ratio move up when ticks are flowing quickly. It signals an alert when the ratio crosses a certain threshold over a smaller look back period. This allows it to catch the breakouts/breakdowns but prevents it from sending a volley of alerts as the tick-speed picks up.

POT has a lag since it triggers after a certain amount of volume has accumulated. The TickSpeed catches the first burst of the high-ticks and does not wait for the accumulation to happen.

POT is great for finding high activity churn zones which often precede reversals or breakdowns/breakouts. The TickSpeed indictor gives advance warning to an upcoming POT signal. TickSpeed also generates more triggers than POT. POT has the advantage in less noisy signals since it actually waits for the accumulation of volume to occur before triggering. Both complement each other well.

Last Thursday's ES chart showing POT vs TickSpeed. ES_F -

The indicator is best viewed on a log scale.


Thank You for sharing this ... may I ask you why do you say the POT measures volume ? it counts the number of ticks on a certain amount of time ....

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.
In life you do what you want but you do not want what you want.

Thank you for correcting me. I was mistaken.

COT requires some accumulation of activity (ticks) before it triggers.
TickSpeed detects the potential start of that accumulation.

They complement each other. The TickSpeed sound alerts me; COT confirms it.
