Damon Pavlatos presents Using Market Profile and Volume Analytics with traditional Technical Analysis 

Date: Oct 21, 2019 at 6:00 PM PST

Free for dues paying members (Become a member here)

Join Damon Pavlatos for a 1-hour webinar where he will introduce how he uses Market Profile and Volume Analytics tools with traditional technical analysis. Market Profile analysis is premised on the notion that any freely traded market behaves like an auction.

Many traders have heard of Market Profile analysis or seen charts with multi-colored horizontal volume histograms but have little knowledge of how extraordinarily well this approach shows the real-time dynamics of Supply and Demand in relation to different prices. Damon will also share some tips and tricks he learned from his 42 years in the futures industry.

    Recent Free Webinar: Trading With RSI - The Cardwell RSI Edge by Andrew Cardwell (Dr. RSI)

    Date: Feb 11, 2019 at 5:00 PST

    Andrew started his work with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) in May of 1978. Although he has researched other technical indicators and studies, he has stated that he has not found anything that yet that can compare to what, or as much as the RSI offers. 
    Most traders who use the RSI look to it to spot Bullish and Bearish Divergence between price and momentum. Andrew has shown that his "Range Rules" are much more valuable in identifying the trend through the "shift" in the range. Divergences are merely just an overextension of the current move and actually a detour from the primary trend. Watch the recorded webinar here:
