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).

Bit more of a risky trade for me but I have compensated by having a very tight stop loss and only putting in a small amount. THC has been held at this support multiple times and has generally come off it with a big bounce. I will be looking for a quick sell at resistance but there is some potential for some good gains here.

Looking at the visible range for the last 9 months we can see that the POC is almost exactly on the current price line. However, bringing the last year in to view (which I haven’t done here) shows the POC dropping right down to 5k and below... Either way, this is a really interesting level to see what happens. I’m bullish long term on BTC, but for now, I’m just ...

XRP/DOLLAR rising wedge reversal pattern, enter short now!!!

XRP/Dollar is showing a rising wedge reversal and it hit resistances a couple of bars down which indicates massive downward movement towards the next support level (1.12 to 1.15 support zone) Hopefully this will retrace and show momentum to the upside again but cryptocurrencies can be extraordinarily volatile especially cause of the new years and future technical ...

***CRYPTO*** PIVX/BITCOIN Long scenario

Keeping the TA simple but the geometry for a bull pennant lies there, will PIVX be taken to new heights against bitcoin or is that a rejection we see with a bearish pennant forming a funnel now?!? Given the buying pressure seen withing the bullish bursts I wouldn't expect so but only time will tell.

DXY Weekly: US Dollar into a critical range.

The strength of the USDollar DXY is looked at from a Weekly perspective. It represents the strength of USD against 6 other currencies. 1. There is a broad band of possible fragile support. 2. The 200 EMA is some indication of probability for the north or resistance to moving far further south of it. However this is not a prediction. 3. Notably the RSI on this ...

BatPattern on daily almost completed. Volatility decreases on the daily so we have to expect less daily range going forward => less opportunity for higher timeframes due to more back and forth.

I have used pivot point analysis primarily combined with fib to notice a reversal that may take place. Price has lined up well with R2 and my weekly resistance which is also 0.5 fib resistance! Using the RSI, I have also seen that USD has been overbought which signals a reversal. I will now move down to the 1 hour chart to get pin point entry and ride this trade ...

This channel upwards looks to be taking a breather. There is divergence coming through in RSI and BBs are likely to contract, I would anticipate that the enthusiasm has not necessarily evaporated it is more a case of taking some of the pressure out of the system. For better or worse the markets seem to be anticipating a boon from Trump coming into office later in ...

LONG USDJPY: 1. Slightly late posting this position but we got long at 104.5 earlier today. The rationale behind owning USD VS JPY is as follows. USD risks are bid 1) in the run up to the 2015 dec hike USD traded extremely bid with DXY breaking through 100, based on the last 2wks i expect USD to mirror 2015 and continue the bid tone we have seen both in 2015 ...
