I can imagine, I'm going through the course material right as we speak and we have hours and hours just about channels. This is going to test my concentration





I used to watch the VSA videos on youtube but was getting irritated by the fact that its one big advertisement .

Omg...I couldn't agree more

PAT vs Al Brooks

If you want to learn price action, my advice is to read the thread of Anekdoten from start to end. Itís very inspirational, fun to read and teaches you price action instead of specific candle patterns that donít work

Google on ďAHG - Profitable Strategy for Struggling TradersĒ.

Succes!

I used to watch the VSA videos on youtube but was getting irritated by the fact that its one big advertisement for the software. However the videos on here about the Wyckoff method are great and I think that volume in general is a great addition to any methodology. I'll continue to read about it and follow some of the threads (I especially like how @Feibel of th S&P Chronicles analyses his days) but I'm looking to more of a hands on approach in regards to learning.

When Williams was alive and in charge, the material available was much more focused on the information with a casual mention of the software. I can't bring myself to watch the Gavin Holmes VSA videos, his presentation makes me cringe. Give me a big horse pill and a glass of straight shitty tequila instead.

By hands-on approach, do you mean working with someone? Gary Dayton, also a Wyckoff practitioner who studied under Weis, has a video on FIO here worth watching. Also, check out his website. https://tradingpsychologyedge.com/

Haha the first criticsm of Brooks. What didn't you like about Brooks? I'm not planning on using a single candlestick as a entry signal. I'm more interested in the market structure part..

I saw the AHG and thought this was a reference to Adam Grimes :-)

Yeah, was nauseating.
I've checked the webinars with Gary Dayton, I liked them, very precise and informative. Ill check the site out.
I mean something more structured. I've read lot of books but for me to able to apply it to trading i need more structure, even though I always take away bits and pieces.

I don't think that Rrrracer was referring on Brooks when he made the comment on the candlestick patterns because neither Brooks is a fond of them....actually the opposite

Iíve been trading some Brooks setups like the H1ís and H2ís for 5 months orso. It just doesnít work, unless you add descretionary to it. Once you do that, you donít need these setups anyone more. Thatís my experience with Brooks.

To learn price action, youíre way better off reading Anekís thread on ET. Best thread ever IMO.

You can imagine @GruttePier that I warmheartedly disagree to that as it does work for me and it's the only thing ever that has worked for me and I've tried a ton of things over time. However, it does prove an important point: what works for somebody, doesn't work for somebody else. Same case I'd say with Brooks Price Action, volume trading, tick analysis, mean reversal strategies and what have you.

That's true for all methods: where someone buys a future, someone sells that future. Presumably, both can make money doing so otherwise they would not be in the game much longer.
