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).

BTC/USD PIVITOL DECISION

Bitcoin has suffered quite the badgering this last few months, but it may be nearing a pivitol decision in where its direction should go in regards for the next half of 2018. The obvious answer by a technical analysis standpoint is that there is a bounce incoming, probably to the next resistance level around 7.8k The RSI and Bollinger Band indicate a bounce; as ...

EOS is going down! here's why

EOS has had a very nice pump up to $22+ but its been long overdue for a healthy correction. Looking at TA, it has broken bollinger band middle support line, has topped out with high volume, and has begun its correction. EOS has been the most highly traded crypto in terms of volume, even beating out bitcoin on bitfinex the past few days - very many people FOMO-ing ...

USD/JPY GOLDEN 4H SIMPLE STRATEGY/ VERY ACCURATE

Along side my trend channels and range trading, I like to use this set up for some extra pips and when back tested works very well over most months (Will probably move to only this strategy when I can guarantee consolidation is not taking place) It cuts all emotions out of trading when I use it with the right money management. Everyone should know that moving ...

Relationship of the $VIX and S&P 500 $spx Analysis $spy #TA

Relationship of the VIX and S&P 500. Key areas to watch on are 44-37 range on the VIX and on the RSI 51. We will not see a sustained rally on the S&P500 until the Vix RSI fails through 51 while the Vix capped under 37 level. The market will need some time to work off the volatility surge if this Asian contagion is actually over. However the market should not ...

Zones where I'm looking to add to my short

If price retraces, I'm looking at those daily and 4HR levels and OBs to add to my short positions. I'd be very surprised if we go higher and would have to re-assess my trade if we come back to 7.4k considering everybody is bearish now. If that's the case, I would consider this dump as a bear trap

SGYP Is Setting Up for A Big Move!

SGYP seems to be setting up for a big big move. The Squeeze Momentum Indicator has been forming a triangle which is now about to close and the crosses in the indicator have been black for some time meaning that a release of the squeeze should be about to manifest. My guess is that spike will be to the upside, and it could go as high as 3.60$ (90%+ appreciation), ...

Bollinger Band Squeeze: Will Volatility pick up on DASH?

DASH has been fairly stagnant over the last few days. On several time frames, conditions for a Bollinger Band Squeeze are met. You can visibly see on the chart that the bands are contracting. Another thing you want to look for is the Bollinger Band Width. On a daily, many look for a 6 month low for the squeeze to be in play. As this is the 4 hour chart, the ...

Little iffy on this one at first. Healthcare has been getting slapped around as is, but, I mean @ this point it's not as bad as $NKTR is lol. Best comparison I could find was $AAPL right around the time (little before) Q1 2018 report was due. Price action wasn't as choppy as $AAPL leading up to its big drop, but most definitely left a dent. Another main difference ...
