The Wyckoff Method is a trading strategy developed by Richard D. Wyckoff. It is based on the principles of supply and demand and is used to analyze price movements in financial markets. The Wyckoff method involves identifying support and resistance levels, analyzing volume and volatility, and studying the relative strength of different markets and uses these patterns to identify trading opportunities. The strategy is used by traders to identify trends and determine entry and exit points.

The four cycles defined by Wyckoff's model of market behavior are:

Impulse leg is an upward trending movement
Downward movement

Three Wyckoff Principle 📜
The supply and demand law, the cause-and-effect link, and the connection between effort and results are the three rules that make up the Wyckoff trading strategy. The principle of supply and demand. If there is an increase in demand over supply, it leads to an increase in the value of a financial instrument. Prices rise because the quantity of an asset is limited and investors are willing to pay more when there is a shortage of the asset. If the demand for the asset falls relative to the supply, the asset loses in value. When supply and demand are in balance, the price is roughly in the same place, which causes the volatility in the market to decrease to a minimum.

According to Wyckoff, accumulation time correlates with an uptrend, while distribution, in contrast, leads to a downtrend in what is called a supply and demand imbalance. When an asset spends a lot of time in the accumulation or distribution zone, there are often strong impulsive moves to break through the zone. A bullish trend will continue upward if a higher price is accompanied by high volume. However, if prices are rising and volumes are high, the trend will shift downward. According to Wyckoff's method, the market should be viewed from the point of view of the main participants, or market makers.

Accumulation 📊
Market makers accumulate assets. Accumulation is when investors buy a lot of a certain asset over time. This makes their holdings bigger, which can lead to higher returns. Some investors believe a certain asset is undervalued and will go up in value. Also, some investors want to diversify their portfolio by adding a new asset.

Impulse move 📈
Market makers eventually start to trade more assets, which causes the price to rise. Investors are becoming greater in number and demand goes up. The volume rises and a trend quickly ascends to new highs. It is typically characterized by a sharp, sustained move in price. This type of movement is often seen during a bull or bear market, when investors are trying to capitalize on the sudden change in price.

Distribution 📉
Market makers distribute assets they have purchased by offering profitable positions to participants who just recently joined the market. Indicators of the cycle include sideways price movement and rising volumes. The demand is absorbed up until the point of exhaustion. A lot of securities or other financial instruments are sold in a short time. This is usually done by institutional investors, like mutual funds, hedge funds, and pension funds, to raise cash or to reduce their securities holdings.

Sell-off 📉
Supply exceeds demand. The market maker reduces the price to a certain level. As soon as the decline is completed, the market enters the next accumulation cycle. On the gold chart, we can see each of Wyckoff's cycles: accumulation, momentum, distribution and depreciation. The phases of accumulation and distribution may differ.

The Wyckoff technique gives detailed principles and strategies, to assist traders in making reasoned decisions. His work explains the market's logic and psychology, which determine how decisions about buying and selling are made. Numerous oscillators are integrated with cluster analysis in the method.
