    Price action basics part 4

    Beginning of this thread is here


    Technical analysis tells us that "price reflects everything".

    Is it right or not?

    In previous post I've shown moving average indicator as an example of how one can use price-value approach in trading.

    But this is just example, in reality, simple MA can't show you where value is.

    Let's say, MA calculates 35 closing prices (35 parameter). Do you think that every price is equal here? Area located at higher prices is more significant for the market because it attracts more volumes (aggresiveness). So in fact weight of higher prices in calculation formula should be increased if we want to know where value is.

    What am I trying to say?

    Price can't reflect everything because not every price level is equally important for the market.

    The missing piece is time and volume

    (we don't have volumes on Forex - tick volumes is not what we need, so we can make conclusions about volumes from price action - was it aggressive or not?)


    If you will refer to price as to advertising mechanism, it would be much easier to understand what's going on on the market.

    I will quote great trader and coach, Jim Dalton, that teaches his students in approach of auction market principles:

    Price advertises opportunity

    Time regulates this opportunity

    Volume measures success or failure of this opportunity



    Let's now get back to practical things.

    I will attach chart from EURUSD to this thread. How do you think - what leves are significant for the market here?
    I placed simple MA with 35 parameter here ;)

    I must agree with you in the fact that price study is the best amongst any indicator in terms of analysising the currency market,although moving average can show you the trend but it can specify entry levels,that why I most times use candlestick pattern and support and resistance level for entry,although its important you learn to manage risks by applying stoploss and also use volumes that wouldn't affect your capital.

    Hello Value trader,the chart is not loading and am not sure if the problem is within my computer or the link you provided,price action topic is very important one and traders who depend on the action of prices instead of indicator trading make good results,i hope we can enrich this topic with more charts.

    as traders are growing more sophisticated they concentrate more on understanding strategies like price actions instead of canned useless strategies that depend on indicators,understanding how price move is essential for a trader to increase his ability to predict future market behavior and base his trades on that.

    With the regard of the following of this course from the beginning, i think i am getting abetter clue on the price action trading. And the way he has being taking it is very concise, and i love it very much. It means that price action might be taken as a whole tdaing system that will work during the sudden economic situations as well.
