Why I Like to Use Tick and Volume Charts for Scalping

Today, I decided to touch more on an educational feature rather than provide a certain market outlook.

Many of my clients and blog readers know that when it comes to short-term trading I am a fan of using volume charts, tick charts, range bar charts and Renko charts rather than the traditional time charts like the 1 minutes, 5 minutes etc.

My rule of thumb is that if you as a trader who makes decisions based on charts that are less than 15 minutes time frame, it may be worth your time to research, back test and do some homework as to potentially using other type of charts like volume charts, Range charts etc.

Volume charts will draw a new bar once a user defined number of contracts traded. An example is the mini SP 10,000 volume chart which will draw a new bar once 10,000 contracts are traded.

Crude Oil & Gold Futures Renko Charts; Economic Reports & Levels 10.08.2014

Hello Traders,

For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

 

Another two markets I like to touch on when it comes to “other markets to daytrade beside the mini SP 500” are Crude Oil Futures and Gold futures.

 

More than a few similarities between the two markets.

 

They are both volatile, can move VERY fast. I have seen some very large moves happen in matter of minutes if not seconds. The “fear & greed” factor really plays a role in these specific two markets.

Both have active trading hours starting with Far East trading around 10 PM est all the way to the next morning until about 3 PM est. Good volume generally speaking but not close to the mini SP or ten year notes. So you may see some slippage on stops but the volume is more than enough to trade size.

Each tick on gold is $10, so every dollar move =$100 against you or in your favor. Crude is similar, each tick = $10. One full $1 move = $1000.

Hello Traders,

For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

I mentioned in previous posts that I am getting to like range bar charts and Renko charts more and more when it comes for very short term trading.

The main reason why I like these type of charts along with volume charts when it comes to any time frame less than 10 minutes is because I think it helps filter out noise during slow times and help you get a quicker signal when there is time of heavier action in the market.

Example, let’s say you are using a 5 minute chart along with certain studies, to make a simple example, moving averages cross overs. Before you get a signal, the 5 minute bar has to finish so you can see the value of the moving averages and see if you got a cross over or not. There are times when the market is fast with heavy volume and you may miss 80% of the move because 5 minutes can be a long time for day traders…..On the other hand if you are using Renko/volume charts/Range bars and there is good volume, fast action, these bars will complete much faster to provide a much faster signal. On the same token, if the market is slow with low volume, you will sometimes get your moving averages cross over simply because time has passed….With volume / Renko charts you may be able to filter this out simply because the bars WONT complete unless there is enough volume/ price action. Obviously, these type of charts are by no means “holly grail” but I think one should observe and pay attention to the type of charts especially if you are a short term day trader.

Below is an example of crude oil 18 ticks range bar from today as well as a 5 minutes chart from today with the same studies/ conditions applied just to get a visual idea. If you like to try out the same charts I am sharing, feel free to contact Cannon Futures Trading and we will set you up for a free trial:

Hello Traders,

For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading! 

As most of you know, for short term trading I like to use volume charts, range bar charts and Renko charts.

I have shared some set ups in previous posts and will continue to do so.

For example, I like to use 18 ticks range bar charts for crude oil and 6 ticks range bar charts for mini SP.

Here is a little more on Range bar charts, courtesy of CQG.com which is my main charting/execution software followed by sierra charts:

Range Bar (RB)

A Range Bar chart is a non-time-based chart constructed of bars that indicate price movement as a way to help expose trends and volatility. A bar is created each time a trade occurs outside of the previous bar’s stated price range, which you set in preferences.
