The Method

The gray area shows the NY Session which is when we use this method.  Other sessions will open up in the next update.  For now NY is the time I recommend.

We look for Specific Signals with no Smart Trade Advisor warnings on each chart.  When they appear we open a trade and exit on one of the three things (Depending mainly on time frame)  The first example is the 15 minute chart for three index charts but any time frame is suitable. For shorter time frames I find it’s best to go for a specific point target, use the signal to signal method for exits, or go for the HVZ area (usually the best).  On longer time frames EOM’s are great targets.

I use the H4 EOM version of this method for nearly two years with great results (I average 10.5 pips per trade).

The chart examples show all the trade setups per our method that have no warnings.  The visual trade advisor which is a tool used for back testing our proprietary trade advisors is used as a visual guide in the older examples.  You can see how they do.  If you own Smart you can verify this very easily using your own charts.

Many more examples are coming in future articles but as many of you know we are finalizing a huge update for Smart (V5.0!) as well as the testing for the Ninja Version and some other really big surprises.

Brexit Was No match for Smart Volume Spread Analysis

Brexit Was No Match For Smart Volume Spread Analysis

I am working on an article to detail a very successful and easy to follow method for trading the SP500 Emini aka the ES or e-mini. I had been compiling results on multiple time frames and working out guidelines for each when news started coming out about the impending Brexit vote. This is an example of that method in action when the big news started coming out that England is leaving the European Union. It details very clearly how well Smart Volume Spread Analysis works even on unprecedented news.

The markets went completely crazy. The GBP dropped to levels not seen in nearly 35 years. Markets all around the globe were crashing as well. All by 5% or more, and many by much worse. Even with all that turmoil going on Smart set up with one of my favorite signals and the trade still worked very well as expected.

Even Brexit was no match for Smart Volume Spread Analysis and our Proprietary Trading Methods.

During the most important and volatile day the financial markets have had to endure in a very long time, our proprietary Smart Volume Spread Analysis software had no problem finding great trades.  Using a simple Trading Method we have developed one trade setup appeared during our ES trade window. Unsurprisingly it worked. Even during one of the craziest market days seen in decades.

The Trade:
Upthrust During Trading Window (Gray Area) with No Warning (1) and No HVZ Entry Issues. Target was lower HVZ Area (2) since we are on Hourly. There are a few ways to exit this method which I will be describing in Future Articles and Documents.

Existing clients of ours will notice some other setups outside the trade window for this method as well.

I didn’t take this trade. I do not trade on Friday but there it is. A number of people asked how Smart performed with everything that was going and I think you can see. Another boring day using Smart.

We will publish the full Article detailing this very easy method for trading the ES using Volume Spread Analysis this weekend. Enjoy this teaser for now and as always please let us know if you have any questions using the link on our website.

Futures Trading With Smart VSA Easily Nets 40 To 100 Ticks Per Day

Futures Trading With Smart Volume Spread Analysis Easily Nets 40 To 100 Ticks Per Day on Oil alone.

I got an update from a client I have written about before… Our software has enabled many people to realize their dreams of trading full-time.  One client we’ve written about before did so after only 6 months of light use.  He updated us recently on his progress and has allowed me to share it with you….  He is futures trading using our Smart Volume Spread Analysis software trading oil and is averaging 40-100 ticks per day (equal to about $400.00 – $1,000.00 per day at the minimum contract size) since he started full-time.

Hi Guys.
Hows it going?  If you recall from my last email I was planning on trading full-time at the beginning of this year.  I’ve traded full-time now the last 3 months thanks to your software.  I am trading crude oil on a strictly intraday basis, I get some nice runners each day and I usually pull 40-100 ticks of crude a day…
It’s been great and I am very thankful for your system.
Take care
Mike L.

I edited out some extra stuff about updates to the software Mike asked about and some other details about his trading I wasn’t certain he wanted divulged.  The take away here is that:

  1. Smart Volume Spread Analysis works extremely well on commodities in addition to Forex and of course stocks etc.
  2. No matter what markets you trade Smart VSA can  have you trading with near 100% accuracy consistently enough to go full-time.
  3. Smart Volume Spread Analysis is a trading method that will enable you to be a better trader in a very short amount of time and that knowledge and the tools we provide will last a lifetime.  Let me know how I can help.

Here is a quick chart that details how easy it is futures trading using Smart Volume Spread Analysis and Catalyst Signals.  The Red and Blue triangles denote the signals you would have taken based on location and trade adviser warnings which are displayed on the chart in real-time.

Smart Volume Spread Analysis Shakeouts

Smart Volume Spread Analysis Shakeouts (When is a signal not a signal part 2)

I had a discussion with a client earlier about this type of observation on volume spread analysis shakeouts and how you can very easily change the way you “see” things on a chart using Smart Volume Spread Analysis, and how a simple observation about a signal can completely transform your trading and your trading results.

Continuing on from our last article “When is a Signal Not a Signal” I want to discuss a favorite signal of mine and how easy it can be to trade successfully.

Take a look at the following screenshot.
I only include a few examples to keep it simple for the article. Smart is real-time so you can follow along very easily and know exactly what’s going to happen in the markets you trade. It’s very simple and only takes a short time to master… literally.

The screenshot shows a few examples of one signal you would take vs one you would not. Aside from the real-time tools that tell you which is worth taking you can easily see just noting the differences which worked and which did not. Can you see the difference?

Squat Shakeouts VS WRB Shakeouts - Smart Volume Spread Analysis Shakeouts

Click to enlarge

The “squat” ones are the ones that get you in at the start of a nice reversal.

The other is an extremely wide range bar. These will generally fail as shown clearly on this example.

The first example of a “squat shakeout” trading signal to signal (which is one of my favorite methods for Smart Volume Analysis trading) you would have been exited at the red bar for about 230 pips in a single trade on the volume spread analysis shakeout on this chart.  Start adding other charts and you get a pretty good idea what is possible when using Smart Volume Analysis Software.

As a user of our software and methods/concepts you already know these trades would have been taken or not based on the adviser warnings but it helps to see why these work or not just using your eyes to find them.

This is the daily chart but the same can be seen with minimal effort on any time frame. Take a look at any signal on any chart and you’ll start to see things like this over and over. This type of exercise is demonstrated in the “classic” chart time exercises within the documents area.

As always if you have any questions about the smart volume spread analysis shakeouts discussed in this article, or our volume spread analysis software, please contact me using the support link on our website.

When is a Signal Not A Signal?

We take great steps to make sure everything painted to your chart is relevant, valid, and necessary (and it is) but we do get questions now and then from newer users that don’t understand some key differences between standard volume spread analysis and Smart Volume Spread Analysis.  I plan on addressing more of these in future articles but for today we’ll discuss signal validity.

Volume Spread Analysis is a bit of a misnomer.  What we really are looking at is activity as represented by volume.  Most VSA is done completely wrong in this regard.  Volume analysis signals by themselves mean nothing without understanding the underlying mechanics of the market they appear.  For example New York i s more heavily traded than Asia.  Volume in New York is higher than in Asia is a true statement but does this mean that activity is lower in Asia than in New York?  Technically yes but that really doesn’t get us any closer to understanding what is really happening at that moment.  When using Volume Spread Analysis you need to apply one more component that almost no one ever mentions or uses…  Time.  Smart Volume Spread Analysis always takes things to the next logical step.  I will give a simple example of what I mean.

When is a signal not a signal?

A No Demand Bar at the Start of Asia is not valid.  Why?  One thing we ask clients to start doing when starting with our concepts, is to take a step back and think logically about what might be happening in addition to what is on the chart.  Take the No Demand Statement above.  Why might that be true?  Volume is lower and the signal appears on your chart so why is it not valid?  Time. Logically we can assume that demand drops off from New York not because there is less demand but rather because trading activity is lower in Asia.  So while standard VSA says there is No Demand, looking at volume alone you miss this critical distinction.  This organic drop off in volume is quite normal and doesn’t show true demand or lack thereof. Trading in Asia is likely what it is normally. This one simple change in how you think about volume spread analysis will completely change your trading for the better.  I’ll address similar concepts here in future articles.  I discuss many concepts like this free in one on one consultations but I want to make these concepts of mine available to a wider audience than I can reach one on one.  As always our next update will include many logic based tools to address a lot of the weaknesses (including this one) we find in standard volume spread analysis.  Once that update is available we’ll start focusing again on the automated systems, index and commodity methods, and basket trading methods.

As always Smart does most of the guesswork for you and frees you up to trade but its a good starting point to getting better at trading using Smart Volume Spread Analysis.  Always apply logic and think about what may be happening ‘within’ the volume.  News, True Market Activity, etc all play a vital role along side Volume Spread Analysis.

If you have any questions about this article, it’s concepts, or our software, please contact me using the support link on the website.
