An analysis of the expansion of learning volume

I have been trading using a method called VSA or Volume Spread Analysis which I learned from Tom Williams, a former syndicate trader, who lives in Europe. His main theology is based on 3 principles.

1. Monitoring and understanding the volume that shows the real activity of professionals, which is most important because professionals drive the market, not retailers.

2. Following the spread, which is the high/low of each bar that appears, this alerts the trader to a bullish or bearish trend in a particular price movement.

3. After closing price, or price action that tells you how price reacts to volume and spread.

Using these 3 techniques you can successfully trade on the right side of the market, with professionals. When you learn to understand these principles, you will find that your decisions to enter a trade are rationalized by what you actually see, not by a false indicator.

Tom Williams improved on the studies of Wycoff, another great trader, to create a conventional software program that can be used for trading, called the trade-guider. Which last about 3K. However, I don’t suggest wasting your money on this b/c you can take the principles you’ve learned and trade successfully without going out of pocket.

I trade any pair based on what I gather from the daily charts, and I look at the spreads and volume when you enter a trade, it’s based on the fact that I either see a bar with no demand that closed on weak volume or no professional support for the move. Or a downward move that has no professional support. As a way to better understand VSA, you can access the volume and gas pedal to the car and your spread is the actual movement, the graph represents the hill your car has to climb. You may have extremely high volume but your range is low, which basically means that the gas is stepped on a lot, but the actual movement of your car is not far off.
