Trading a Valley in the CAD

Real trading has to do with simple observation and seizing opportunities, however they might present. I use the CAD to illustrate this by looking at the structure and process of a valley structure and its components, like gaps and coils, which express the principle of contraction and expansion.  I then take you through possible trade opportunities along this process. This is what I do when I trade.



Learning From One Line

If we want to learn about price flow and trading, it’s best to go directly to price flow itself. By using a simple line we can make observations about how price interacts with that line and allow price to teach us. 

This is one of several One Line practices. It’s meant to enable personal insight and real learning. From this learning you will start to see many ways in which this line can be made functional for your trading. It also teaches you about the dynamics of Median Lines and Action/Reaction.

The instructions are simple: Follow the last 2 relative confirmed swings with a line and make observations as to how price interacts with that line. By isolating the last 2 relative swings, you identify organized behavior in the seemingly chaotic flow of price. It’s an established rhythm. Now you have a way to see if price continues that behavior or if it changes that behavior. In this video I explain this further and practice with a few different markets.


Reading The GBP Part 2

In Part 1 of Reading The GBP, we learned how to read the story that price was telling by mapping simple relative swings. In Part two’s clip from our live session, we take that same market and include more data. The thing to remember is, no matter how much data you have on the chart, you can always structure a market to see the story that price is telling you. We do this by mapping minor and major swings. 



Reading The GBP Part 1

This is a clip from one of our Language of Markets Live sessions. It’s is an exercise where we describe the story that the GBP is telling. We take what looks like a chaotic market and structure it with simple swings to see it clearly, taking some of the crazy out. Once mapped with simple relative swings, you can read price, design your own trading plan and make intelligent trade decisions.
