Best of WYCKOFF 2018 Online Conference Agenda
8:00 a.m. - 9:20 a.m. (PDT)
Finding Springs Springs are not merely located at the right-hand of a lengthy trading range. They appear in all areas of a chart, ranging from the low point in a decline with a shortening of the downward thrust to part of an absorption phase. Springs will be shown on bar chars, wave charts and renko charts.
9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. (PDT)
Wyckoff's Law of Effort vs. Result in the Cryptocurrency Markets One of the central principles of the Wyckoff Method is evaluating whether Effort (volume) and Results (price movement) are concordant or discordant in the context of the prior history of a given financial instrument. Todd will illustrate the value of Effort vs. Result analysis in trading cryptocurrencies, using several proprietary Wyckoff tools: the Optimism-Pessimism Index (reflecting optimism due to buying and pessimism due to selling), the Force Index (indicating extremes in supply/demand conditions), and the Technometer (a volume-based barometer of investor sentiment).
10:40 a.m. - 11:50 a.m. (PDT)
Deliberate Practice to Master the Wyckoff Analysis, Part II
In this session, Mr. Bogomazov and a graduate of his Wyckoff Trading Practicum Course (WTPC) will showcase how traders studying the Wyckoff Method develop proficiency and mastery by analyzing charts as they unfold over time. During an interactive trading exercise illustrating the deliberate practice in a typical WTPC class, you will observe the systematic analysis of Market Structure, Supply and Demand, and Relative Strength that Roman teaches his students as a basis for filtering, initiating, managing and exiting trades. This exercise has been designed to demonstrate some fundamental as well as advanced nuances of the Wyckoff Method; among other things, you’ll see how WTPC traders learn to anticipate not only the likely directional bias of a breakout from a consolidation, but also the timing, probable character and duration of the subsequent trend. Traders of all experience levels will enjoy and benefit from this stimulating presentation.
12:00 p.m. - 1:10 p.m. (PDT)
Looking for Trades at the Right Edge of the Chart The mark-up or mark-down of price often begins in earnest after the appearance of what Wyckoff called a hinge or springboard on the right edge of the chart. This session will focus on identifying patterns of price action and volume leading into a springboard, which can help traders make more efficient entries - i.e., only when the market is ready to move. This session will focus on recognition of springboards as well as of absorption occurring near resistance (called "the Creek") as a prelude to a rally and of "reverse absorption" near support (the "Ice") before an imminent decline.
1:20 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (PDT)
Wyckoff Market Discussion (WMD) This session will follow the format of our weekly WMD webinars. We will start with our trademark "Market Rant" - reviewing the major U.S. indices (Dow, S&P, Nasdaq, and Russell 2000) and their reactions to recent national and international events, and analyzing the current positions of these markets as well as future scenarios to anticipate. We will then examine specific market sectors, industry groups, leading stocks, and several commodities and futures markets, such as crude oil, natural gas, gold, silver and currencies. Finally, time permitting we will discuss and analyze charts submitted by regular WMD subscribers.
