Volatility

Volatility-based indicators are valuable technical analysis tools that look at changes in market prices over a specified period of time. The faster prices change, the higher the volatility. The slower prices change, the lower the volatility. It can be measured and calculated based on historical prices and can be used for trend identification. It also typically signals if a market is overbought or oversold (meaning price is unjustifiably high or unjustifiably low), which can point to a stalling or reversal of the trend.

Identifying the points where price potentially stops and reverses is very helpful to any trader. They are commonly used in combination with other signal-generating conditions. There are several volatility-based indicators all using volatility in a clever way to help identify trading opportunities. Examples of such indicators are Average True Range (ATR), the widely popular and easy to use Bollinger Bands (BB), Donchian Channels and Keltner Channels (KC).

Head and Shoulders on EURUSD

Possible short idea here, with a head and shoulders coupled with a right shoulder 618% retracement with two bearish 4h pin bars. Also we are on a resistance line here, that might support a bearish move. Possible to get a good RR on this one. Market is volatile so anything might happen, but hopefully we will get a nice clean move down to the red line (50%line). ...

Gold Rallies at End of Day. Will it Continue?

Gold fell to a new 2 week low during Wednesday's trading. That is, until the end of the day when the administration's tax plan was released and Gold rallied higher to close the trading session. However, Gold met resistance at the 21 day moving average and if you look at the Heikin-Ashi chart below, today's trading ended in a strong red Heikin-Ashi candle. That ...

Holding LTC and waiting to buy on any weakness. LTC is forming a symmetrical triangle (red lines) within a larger symmetrical triangle (top red line and diagonal lines 3 and 4). MACD is indicating a continuation downward and the RSI is continuing to trend downward. If LTC breaks below the purple trendline and the red triangle we will enter zone C where line 3 and ...

We have had 2 massive gaps in the Dow recently and now price seems to be following through and moving higher. As I have stated in previous ideas, I do believe the Dow is going to head higher over the months ahead so long as we don't get a black swan event. With that said, I am still cautious right now.

I’ve mentioned the AUDNZD twice in April. The first was when the pair was carving out a bull flag and the second just after it had dipped below the 1.0765 key support level. However, the Aussie cross never set up for us as 1.0765 gave out before an opportunity could materialize. But despite last week’s dip, buyers reclaimed 1.0765 at the end of yesterday’s ...
