Section #1 (Specific dates TBA) – WYCKOFF STRUCTURAL PRICE ANALYSIS

Description: In Section #1 you will learn how to to read market structure by applying Wyckoff's cardinal insights regarding the interplay of price, volume and time. Understanding market structure allows you to anticipate coming price action.  You will learn to identify and analyze accumulation, distribution, re-accumulation and re-distribution – the key trading ranges that power trends.  You will also learn Wyckoff Method trade set-ups based on market structure, how to enter a new or an existing trend, and how to recognize in advance when a trend is likely to end.   

  • The Price Cycle: Accumulation, Mark-Up, Distribution and Mark-Down
  • Change of Character in an established trend: identifying a change from a trending to a non-trending environment
  • Change of Character in a trading range: identifying price and volume action signaling the initiation or continuation of a trend
  • Trading ranges that generate big trends: accumulation and distribution
  • A key concept in Wyckoff Method analysis of trading ranges: Phases
  • Phase anatomy: Wyckoff Method events (e.g., climaxes, tests, springs, upthrusts, signs of strength)
  • Identifying phases in accumulation and distribution
  • Characteristics of re-accumulation and re-distribution trading ranges
  • Distinguishing re-accumulation from distribution and re-distribution from accumulation
  • Three Wyckoff Method rules for trades based on market structure
  • Delineating Buying and Selling Zones using the Wyckoff Method, including entry and exit strategies
  • Exercises and homework assignments
  • Section #1 duration: 2 online sessions

Dates: Specific dates TBA

Section #2 (Specific dates TBA) – SUPPLY AND DEMAND

Description: Here Mr. Bogomazov will focus in detail on identifying supply and demand on any chart.  The Wyckoff Method is based on the assumption that all freely traded markets are governed by supply and demand.  In today’s markets, as in Wyckoff’s time, large professional interests dominate supply and demand.  Having the ability to accurately read supply and demand on a chart will allow you to make better decisions about timing your entries and exits and to join the large operators rather than being caught on the wrong side of a trade.

  • Concepts in supply and demand – the forces that move all markets
  • Who is the "Composite Operator" and how do his actions in the market affect supply and demand?
  • Volume and spread analysis
  • Variations of spread and volume in different market environments
  • Effort (volume) versus results (price action) – confirmation and discordance both predict future price behavior
  • Volume analysis and schematics in trading ranges
  • Volume characteristics in different phases of accumulation and distribution
  • Wyckoff’s springboard: when price is poised to move
  • Tradable volume patterns
  • Exercises and homework assignments
  • Section #2 duration: 2 online sessions

Dates: Specific dates TBA

Section #3 (Specific dates TBA) - RELATIVE AND COMPARATIVE STRENGTH

Description: Relative and comparative strength, the core of Section #3, are Wyckoff Method concepts that can help you select the top stocks in the best sectors to trade, particularly at market turns.  In this mini-course you will learn how to apply these concepts to identify candidates for long or short trades, and how they can also be used to improve the timing of your entries and exits.

  • Relative and comparative strength analysis: how to choose the best vehicles to trade
  • Use of comparative strength for stock selection in the Wyckoff Method
  • Improving the Wyckoff Method's comparative strength analysis in trading ranges
  • Differences between relative and comparative performance
  • Using changes in relative strength or weakness to spot sectors and stocks to trade
  • Creating selection filters using relative and comparative strength to identify high-probability trades
  • Exercises and homework assignments
  • Section #3 duration: 2 online sessions

Dates: Specific dates TBA

Section #4 (Specific dates TBA) – PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER: DEVELOPING A WYCKOFF TRADING PLAN

Description: The first three sections incorporate foundational elements of the Wyckoff Method and are designed to allow you to immediately apply standalone concepts in each to your own trading.   For students who want to integrate these elements more deeply, Mr. Bogomazov will teach how to create a Wyckoff trading plan in Section #4.  Because the last part relies heavily on the materials in the other three, participation will be limited to students who have attended at least two of the previous Wyckoff Method sections.   

  • Using filters to improve selection of stocks or options to trade
  • Relative strength filters
  • Structural filters
  • Supply and demand filters
  • Using multiple filters to pinpoint the best trades and times to open positions
  • Market Analysis as a Filter – timing entries in sync with the market
  • Using Wyckoff Method concepts to create a trading plan
  • Back-testing your trading plan with a pre-formatted Excel template – key variables to track
  • Trading tactics for your Wyckoff trading plan: entries, position management, and exits
