Charts, 2013 – Week 31

In Charts on July 28, 2013 at 6:39 pm

I’m having some technical difficulties with my charting platform, so cannot post the normal charts this week; instead these are weekly and daily volatility stops which I am studying for incorporating into my strategy.  The indicator calculates a 5-period Average True Range and plots a line 3ATR away.  After price closes on the opposite side of the indicator, it flips from bullish (green) to bearish (red).  I was introduced to this by @debrink who learned it from Sylvan Vervoort ( .  I hope to do a longer post about it in the future.

A word about the charts: On Sundays I tend to look at weekly OHLC bar charts and watch for a few things: classic chart patterns, channels, support/resistance, moving averages, and sometimes candle patterns.  I post a few that seem most relevant to me. I don’t necessarily trade based on weeklies, but they help me understand context and are useful to consult before trading in the lower timeframes.  I am always amazed how insignificant 300 pip moves look on a weekly chart.
