Mastering the Markets with the Wyckoff Method
One who understands how to interpret charts correctly can usually decide whether the whole market, or any single stock or group of stocks, is most likely to advance, decline or stand still
We are pleased to announce the 5th annual Best of Wyckoff (BOW) Conference, originally launched at Golden Gate University by the late Dr. Henry (“Hank”) Pruden. Since 2017, the conference has been hosted online by Wyckoff Associates, LLC, featuring presenters with decades of experience trading and teaching the Wyckoff Method. In this year’s BOW, we focus on applying specific Wyckoff principles to help traders “Master the Markets.” Experts specializing in specific aspects of the Wyckoff Method offer practical, “how-to” presentations. Join us online for another exceptional opportunity for traders of all skill levels to learn real-world, concrete applications of the Wyckoff Method to today’s markets!
During the breakout sessions, Howard will be focusing on the top-down filtering techniques he applies to sectors and industry groups in order to identify stocks with both emerging strength and Wyckoff structure. Howard will discuss the Relative Strength Heatmap and associated tools in detail, including the calculation and methodology behind their construction. Finally, these sessions will illustrate application of the tools with examples of specific outperforming industry groups and leading stocks.
Horizontal Point and Figure Counting is one of the oldest and most powerful tools in the technical analysis arsenal. The ability to generate price objectives from PnF charts is unique but rarely used. Traders can become discouraged when count objectives are wildly inaccurate. In this presentation, Bruce will illustrate techniques for improving your PnF counting skills.
Among the Topics to be Covered: A review of general rules of thumb for when to use 1-box and 3-box reversal methods. Which scaling methods are best for the analysis you are using? How to construct PnF charts for intraday analysis. How to match intraday PnF to the desired vertical chart timeframes. Where to start and end PnF Counts for maximum count accuracy.
Richard D. Wyckoff was one of the most influential early exponents of the discipline of technical analysis, and his influence continues unabated today, almost a century after his death in 1934. While many of his practices regarding technical analysis are widely known and employed by technical analysis practitioners (if often unattributed to him), remarkably little is known about the man himself.
This presentation seeks to address this gap by shining a light on the many successes, failures and tragedies that shaped the life of Richard Wyckoff. His brilliant achievements and contributions were offset by stunning failures, including his business interests with Hugo Emerson’s phonograph record company (of which Wyckoff would later say, “I have made a good many mistakes in my life but this was one of the worst”), and his disastrous marriage to his second wife, Cecelia Gertrude Shere who, through cunning and deception, wrested control of the Magazine of Wall Street from him. Still, he was and remains a remarkable figure for his contributions to technical analysis and so much more.
Roman will discuss several core Wyckoff Method concepts, presenting a mosaic of Wyckoffian ideas and recent innovations. These will be woven together to show that the traditional approach to Wyckoff analysis also supports intriguing new applications of the Method that we can incorporate in our trading.
The pace will be quick, with detailed coverage of: (1) Trend Recognition and Analysis; (2) Rate of Change (ROC), a TA indicator that can help identify changes of character; and (3) Wyckoff Analytics’ newly developed Bias Game, an educational tool designed to test traders’ skill in defining directional bias in trading ranges. Finally, Roman will analyze contemporary charts, deliver his take on current market behavior, and update the conference on the Wyckoff Nation, which has undergone exceptional growth since last year’s BOW.
From Todd Krueger’s experience in educating traders on the Wyckoff analysis methods, there is one glaring weakness that keeps showing up…traders’ lack of confidence in reading the chart with a high enough degree of consistency to place their hard- earned money on the trade without hesitation or second guessing. In this session, we will focus on one simple Wyckoff chart pattern that you can learn to confidently confirm and trade on an intraday basis.
Effort vs result, cause vs effect, and demand and supply are three core principles that every successful Wyckoff trader must master. Gary has taken these to a new level in the “Art of Tape Reading as Wyckoff would have understood it” by watching money flow, bar charts and volume. There is a reason why the Composite Operator (C.O.) undertakes a campaign — Gary will show you specifically the realms in which the C.O. operates. He believes that developing this awareness is one of the keys to successful application of the Wyckoff Method. A former Chicago Mercantile Exchange member in the S&P 500 pit, Gary illuminates his teaching with his vast trading floor experience, providing a unique perspective that few Wyckoff traders can offer.
The existence of a correlation between digital assets and the stock market has been a point of contention among financial analysts for several years. Despite the low liquidity that distinguishes new markets, cryptocurrencies are emerging as a leading speculative asset class in the current business cycle. In this session Alessio will show how to identify the signs of institutional presence in the crypto assets, applying specific Wyckoff principles and rotation strategies to these high-risk financial instruments.
As Wyckoffians, can we identify “scannable moments” in Wyckoff Structures? In addressing this question, we will begin with a review of basic Accumulation and Distribution structures and perform a “scannable elements” inventory. The elements inventory will allow us to determine which price movements create scanning opportunities. The objective is to locate stocks that might be in the process of Accumulation or Distribution. We will then develop and run some scans designed to look for Accumulation, on the one hand, and Distribution, on the other. Visual filtering and structural marking will help us determine the effectiveness of our scans.
