1. Using tick/Volume charts and Oscillators for day trading

Using tick charts and oscillators for day-trading (by Ilan Levy-Mayer VP of Cannon Trading and CTA at Levex.net )

I really don't think anyone has found a "perfect way" to day-trade.

Different techniques work well in different market environment.

In this week short educational feature, I will touch about one technique one can add to their trading arsenal. This technique works better on choppy, two sided ways. It DOES NOT work well when the market has a strong trend.

The chart below illustrates a few principals I like:

  1. It uses a tick chart rather than a time chart. I like tick charts ( range bar, volume charts, renko) better when day-trading shorter time frames for the simple reason it already includes a big factor in the market, VOLUME. If you are using 5 minutes chart for example, you may get signals simply because time "has passed" and certain indicators you are using adopt certain values. When using tick charts, at times where there is lots of movement in the market, you won't have to wait until your time frame bar closes to get your signal, volume becomes a bigger more important part of your trading decision.

    corn futures;

    The grain market bears have had their way most of this year. However, it's the "weather scare" season in the U.S. Corn Belt. Look for price volatility to pick up in the coming weeks. Weather scares in the corn and soybean markets in the summertime develop very quickly. Stay tuned!
