Discusses relationship between divergence, buyer/seller, and overbought/oversold.

Includes an explanation of hidden and classic divergence and Class A, B and C divergence as well as rules for use and when not to use.

Only price pays. In trading, emotions and egos are expensive collaborators. Our goal as traders is to capture price moves inside our time frame, while limiting our drawdowns in capital. The longer I have traded, the more I have become an advocate of price action. Moving away from the perils of opinions and predictions has improved my mental well-being, and my bottom line.

Good educational piece by Nial Fuller that looks first at chart structure and identifying key components then looks at candle patterns within those key areas to identify entries.

Yes, well written and presented and covers the main need to know patterns without labouring the point, very good. Published just last Friday.

I never would of thought to look to find it in IG analysis > news and analysis > trading opportunities? I wonder what else is in there, that section really needs an index.

Useful and interesting video for new traders. 'The Ultimate Forex Trading Guide for Beginners'. Covers a lot quickly and in plain language from the very basics of what is FX and how it works though how brokers work and how trades work.

50 min.

Very good video explaining and demonstrating institutional buy side programs, what they look like on candle, profile and footprint charts and how to exploit them.

@Caseynotes, very interesting.

One very important point for people to remember is that small individual traders or investors do not move the price. It is institutional buying and selling that moves the price in any direction on a significant level. 

That's why on AIM where those companies that have large institutional shareholder base which equate to a fairly large percentage of share ownership, I have known investors and traders, to short such companies as these institutional companies will have to sell at some point to realise profit / loss for the year. This goes towards their performance and returns figures which they have strict objectives and targets to try and meet.

I must add that there is risk in such a strategy as if the company is doing rather well, these institutions may keep adding to their position after any selling, making shorting an extremely tricky position.

Indeed @TrendFollower, the charts just show the foot prints of the institutional traders and our job is to follow close behind without getting run over. Nice insight into the AIM, thanks.

@Caseynotes,

A couple of things. First of all why have you recently got 'Test' underneath your name?

What makes this website and company credible?

One begs the question why they are being so generous by giving for free? Especially from around $125.00!

Hi @TrendFollower,  Marwood have been offering courses for some time and are perfectly legit, the price reduction thing usually occurs for a couple reasons namely they may be about to update and refresh the course, 'all new', and also there will be a lure at the end to try to get you to sign up for another one which some will do if they liked the content of the free taster. Udemy do it all the time, see  https://www.udemy.com/topic/stock-trading/

I am a Test and born on the 12th of June because of a glitch that occurred when we were transferred from the old Forum platform to this new one, I was a nothing for a long while so 'Test' feels like a promotion.

I think test must be a recent attempt to rectify the glitch.

When I added the link for the Udemy online courses site in the last post I didn't actually notice that they are currently having a 7 day black Friday sale event with many courses offered at a 75% price reduction.

@Caseynotes,

Do you know personally know CryptoCred?

Do you know how successful and profitable CryptoCred is?

Hope you had a lovely Christmas and wish you and your family a very Happy New Year.

Lol @TrendFollower,  no I don't know him personally but have known of  him long enough to know he is actually a successful trader. If you look through the work you will appreciate it is well reasoned and rational.

In fact I know of most of the traders he gives a 'shout out' to that have lead to his development and success and so recognise many of the concepts within the study and have seen how those concepts have developed over many years with help from Michael Huddleston (I am ICT) through Tom Dante (Trader Dante) and Will Hunting (wmd4x) and finally onto CryptoCred.

Trader Dante I have followed since 2012 and posted many links to his work on this forum for years because I know it to be genuine good advice from an experienced trader. Actually earlier this year, for a laugh, he and Brian Watts entered the CME wheat traders competition (neither have ever traded wheat before) and Dante won it hands down.

If you are demanding to see CryptoCred's audited accounts like Oilfxpro use to do then no but I have enough experience to recognise the good from the bad and wouldn't have bothered posting it if it was anything other than genuine sound advice and real and tested concepts that every trader should be aware of.

@Caseynotes,

Apologies but you do not know him personally but have known him long enough to know he is actually a successful trader? 

The likes of a few of us here on the IG Community may come up with reasoned and rational arguments and discussions but that does not mean for instance that say the both of us are successful and profitable traders. I am not questioning the content as I am sure if it from other traders then he has merely just put it all together in one document. 

I have read many of your posts and there is nothing there that say someone like you could not have put together or even summarised such material into a thread/posts. 

No I am not demanding to see CryptoCred's audited accounts. LOL. I am not interested in CryptoCred or his accounts.  I am more interested in your thoughts, opinions, experience, posts, etc. 

From my experience and in my personal opinion those who are truly successful and profitable traders (the best)  would just go about quietly and make successful trade after trade and profit after profit. They waste little time trying to educate others or even stating their knowledge, experience, wisdom, etc. with others. They would not waste their time offering freebe material to all around. Very few of the truly great traders behave like that. I appreciate there may well be exceptions but is CryptoCred one of those?

That's not necessarily the case, often just the opposite in fact for a number of reasons. Firstly, right at the start Cred credits those he has learnt from and acknowledges that their contributions have aided his own development, it follows that some people just want to give something back.

Successful traders are not made or born but make themselves but even so cannot do it in isolation, everyone has had some help along the way. The best traders are employed by institutions and sit at a desk alongside other traders swapping info and ideas all day long. New traders at a institution's trading desk will get a mentor whether they want one or not.

Also there is a benefit to setting principles and concepts down on paper which helps to order it in your own mind and helps to make sense of it all. So in affect the work is for your own benefit firstly and once completed in a precise and condensed form is easily distributed if one wishes but that is secondary.

The scientific community takes a concept and alters it in some way to make it better with the expectation someone else will come along and improve it further still. Some of the concepts in Cred's study I first saw a decade ago in forum posts by ICT that have evolved and been improved by the other guys along the way. So in many respects Cred's study is a continuation rather than an isolated effort.

Ultimately though it may just be yet another study on trading and technical analysis but of the many hundreds I have browsed this one is well put together, obviously aimed at the beginner to intermediate level it's very informative and well worth the time taken to review it. As he states himself it would be unwise to try to incorporate all of it into one trading style but I doubt anyone can say they got nothing from it.

It is also important to note that Cred is happily giving this away for free. The concepts are rational and reasonable, I don't recall anything I completely rejected and it's very clear and concise  but of course remains very much take it or leave it.

    • yes, with Renko you are changing from time based charts to price based and so remove a lot of noise and smooth out  the price action hopefully giving a clearer picture.
    • The twitter bears are taking a lot of flak at the mo and with good cause, especially the likes of Edgeye and Zerohedge who called a recession in 2015 and were wrong so they just repeat the call every year since in the expectation of being right eventually. Amusingly enough many traders have build this psychology into their trading plan, imagine anyone trying to continually short a bull market for 5 straight years, and yet as I've pointed out for years using the sentiment data of IG clients short/long positions that's exactly what many have been trying to do. Here's the thing, you don't need to guess, a chart will tell you if it's bearish. As Chris in the podcast above says, a market making new all time highs just can't be anymore BULLISH, there is only one way to go. So if the chart lines up with the macro and both are clearly bullish 'buy high and sell higher'. Do yourself a favour and spend the 50 minutes to listen to the podcast, you will learn something.  
    • Final hours of trading put in some bearish candles that may be a precursor to a period of bearish retrace if the 1H channel is broken on Monday.  If it does I will be expecting an A-B-C form retrace that may retest several support levels before a resumption of the long term Bull.  This is an opportunity to buy in lower, but patient is needed, it may take some time to evolve.  I have a cheeky Short in place...
