Dec 062016
 

RG held another live event today in the chat room, this time a continuation of recent forum discussions on using point and figure or reversal bar plotting to effectively view price action intraday. The importance of learning how to normalize periodicity to “see” the same true price action regardless of the PNF chart parameter setting was discussed referencing the current day educational example. This was followed by the usual question and answer segment dealing with a variety of topics.

Oct 052016
 

RG did impromptu talk today in the chat room today to propose consideration of a risk overlay topic rarely discussed in the forum. Specifically, the discussion was aimed at the potential viability of another ‘layer’ of conditional trade management adaptation related to modification of target objectives based on how accurate the entry ended up being once the trade has had a chance to develop. Some additional related questions from the membership were also addressed.

Sep 272016
 

RG did another impromptu talk today in the live chat  room to offer his opinion in response to posts about the logic of trading from low volume areas (LVNs) versus high volume areas (HVNs).  Using today’s price action, RG pointed out scenarios where he would and would not consider trading pullbacks and fade trades using volume density as a guide.  He also touches on directional bias for pullback trading and the need to understand that your bias can change as the day unfolds.

FatFish has become the go-to guy for capturing RG’s spontaneous trade-room monologues.   So thanks once again to FatFish for displaying and recording his desktop and providing us with this video.
