The Accumulation / Distribution Line is an indicator which was essentially designed to measure underlying supply and demand. It accomplishes this by trying to determine whether traders are actually accumulating (buying) or distributing (selling). This is accomplished by plotting a running total of each period’s Money Flow Volume. ADL can reveal divergences between volume flow and actual price to primarily either affirm a current trend or to anticipate a future reversal.

Time to decide

Oil has been sideways for quite a while and unable to make a new high. Since Opec agreement doesn't seem to have any real effect, it seems that it is now ready for a new bear trend. Note how this two volume indicators show there's been more downward interest even before last daily high. Targets along the pitchfork channel. Thanks for your comments.

Breaking down the EURUSD 15min

After the Major spike in EURUSD last week, it's starting to pullback in a Bull Flag fashion. This usually means a breakout in the direction of current Momentum, in this case Bullish. Price is also working on completing an ABCD Pattern on the 30 min Chart. Zooming in on a Lower Time Frame (LTF) I can see that it's in a small Balance Area. I will look to be trading ...

Breakout Opportunity on USDJPY 240min

USDJPY is up to its same old tricks. The USDJPY like to consolidate tightly for periods of time then explode out of the range. This Breakout/Breakdown opportunity is setting up on the 240min chart. It's just a simple Balance Area. These Balance Area's are where "smart money" is either Accumulating or Distributing positions, we never really know what they are doing ...

KORS- More room to fall

The downward channel broke severely to the downside this week after KORS plummeted an additional 25% post-earnings. I think the multi-year lows of ~35/36 will be tested if not breached. Even if the stock is slightly oversold in the very near term, the trend on the technicals is pretty clear. Fundos- After a dismal earnings release and a 25% drop in the price ...
