Outline
  • Would it help you if you know, with a high probability trading signal, that tomorrow will be a bullish or bearish day?
  • What if knowing the above information, you know where is the precise levels to long or short the markets? And most importantly where to set the stop loss level?
  • How would that help you in your trading profits?
  • And what if this is a purely educational seminar with no sales expected?

If you are curious and want to know how to predict the markets regardless of forex, futures, commodities or stocks, then this is the seminar that you cannot miss.

Speaker Profile

Jonathan Tan started investing in stock market right after the Asian financial crisis in 1998 and made quite some money. But having substitute luck with skills, he lost every profits and his capital. He accumulated his savings by working and started all over again. In every bull market, he made some profits, but when it comes to bear market, he lost everything including his capital. Sounds familiar? Until one day when he was so frustrated, he started to learn technical analysis and through real life application, he found out the practical way of applying technical analysis and from that day onwards, his trading skills started to improve and slowly regain back his lost capital and make consistent profits.

After numerous years as Regional IT Manager for a large multi-national company, Jonathan has since quit his full-time job in 2006 and now trades for a living. Having previously conducted a lot of seminars and technical analysis courses, Jonathan discovered that the simplest way to trade is the most effective and profitable. He prefers the “lazy” way to trade which means waiting for the right signals, the right time and the right price before pulling the trigger. Jonathan had previously written articles for regional newspaper and magazines such as The Star and SmartInvestor. Now he shares his experience using social media such as website, Facebook, and YouTube. He now manages a trading group in https://www.facebook.com/groups/GatheringofTraders/

19 Jul An Alternative Look @ Volume (AGM will be conducted prior to the talk)

Volume has always been an important aspect in technical analysis. The usual way is looking at volume with price for confirmation. Higher volume with a price rally is a confirmation of the advance and vice versa for the downward price movement. This volume is associated with time. Example - daily volume, hourly bar volume. Another way is to look at volume associated with price.

Market Profile practitioner has been using Volume @ Price for many years and in recent years, Point and Figure charting has also incorporated Volume @ Price into its analysis. If your charting software does not provide Volume @ Price, another way would be to look at Price by Volume or Volume by Price provided by your charting softwares. How do we adapt Price by Volume in our analysis? Looking at two aspects of volume; is it better than just one?

Volume @ Price has a distribution profile. Can we use Market Profile's Day profile to analyse Volume @ Price? This 60 minutes talk will look further into this aspect and provide members with another weapon to fight the market.

Talk Outline
  • Why do we apply Volume to technical analysis?
  • The Common Way in which Volume is used.
  • A look at Volume @ Price
  • How to apply Volume @ Price to stock prices?
  • Volume @ price profile Study and Application
  • Trading Examples
