How Does the Fractals Indicator Work: Description, Settings

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Traders,

The Fractals indicator was designed and popularized by Bill Williams, the author of one of the most popular trading systems and the book "Trading Chaos". This instrument is a technical indicator that allows to detect local extremums on the chart. A breakout of these levels may provoke a good future move in their direction. The author recommends using Fractals with the Alligator indicator; however, there are methods of trading with Fractals that are far from the classical author's ideas.

Description of Fractals

For the indicator, we use five candlesticks, the third candlestick in the combination should have the highest high or the lowest low. If there is such a formation on the chart, the indicator shows narrow either above the candlestick or below it.



For example, if we are speaking about an ascending fractal, to define it, we need to see on the chart a minimum of five candlesticks following one another, with a lower candlestick at each side of the highest one. Conversely, for a descending fractal, here it is important to see a minimum that will be among four other candlesticks with higher minimums.

The author notes that for a fractal, we do not need five candlesticks exactly, there might be less. However, the five-candlestick combination has become most popular in modern trading.

One of the important advantages of the indicator is the possibility to mark important support and resistance levels. Many traders just add Fractals to the chart and work with breakouts of the levels or try to combine it with graphic patterns.

How does Pump and Dump Strategy Work? Discussing the Examples

Author: Eugene Savitsky



Dear Traders,

In order to make money on the stock market, a trader must either have patience or a trading system. Patience makes the most of the money on the stock market. The only thing a trader must do to receive profit is to buy stocks on several different companies (for risk diversification) without the leverage, with dividend payouts if possible, and hold them until there is a wish to take profit.

Stocks portfolio at Finviz.com

I’ll show a simple example. At Finviz.com, you can create your own demo stocks portfolio with the information on the time of purchase and the current profit. In 2013, which was almost seven years ago, I wanted to know what kind of money I could make by buying stocks and holding them for a long time. so, I created my demo portfolio and forgot about it.

At that time, I was choosing stocks on some kind of principles I had. Finally, I bought one share of Delta Airlines (NYSE: DAL) at 56.79 USD and и 4 cheap shares that cost less than 20 USD each. By now, the portfolio profit has exceeded 48,000 USD. However, at some moments the portfolio value was more than 100,000 not including dividends.



Thereby, taking into account purchasing prices in 2013, 43,258 USD were invested in these shares, which makes the average annual yield 16% and that’s much more than the yield of any bank deposit calculated in USD.

Pump and Dump strategy

When it comes to a trading strategy, it’s much more complicated. There are a lot of different trading systems: some of them make a profit on trend markets, while others – during “dead season”. Some people trade at level breakouts, while others do the opposite. However, in all these systems, periods of profit are followed by periods of losses. As a result, each of these systems requires some particular market conditions, when they will ear profit.

But today we’ll talk about one of the systems, which doesn’t depend on the market environment, the country’s economy, crisis, or something like that. This trading system has always been and will always be efficient as long as trading operations on the stock market are performed by a man.

This trading system is based on nothing but human greed and wish to make a fast buck. And you know, the greed will always follow the money.

The trading system’s name is Pump and Dump.

Example with NanoViricides Inc

So, pay attention to NanoViricides Inc (NYSE: NNVC) stocks. Until the middle of 2019, the average traded volume didn’t exceed 50.000 shares per trading session, while the trading range was between 1 and 3 USD per stock. However, in only a month, the daily traded volume skyrocketed up to 4.4M shares per trading session and in 4 days it was more than 33M shares. And this was happening to the company, the capitalization of which was less than 32M USD with only 17 people on the staff.



For a better understanding of the volume growth rate, let’s compare it with a famous car manufacturer, Ford (NYSE: F), shares of which are also not very expensive. The average traded volume in Ford is 35M shares, but its capitalization is 35B USD and the staff includes 199,000 employees. Sizes of these companies are way too different, but the traded volume of shares is almost the same.

Real Case: How I Earned 1427 USD in 10 Days on Cheap Stocks Using Pump and Dump

Author: Eugene Savitsky



Dear Traders,

Today, we will look a bit away from analytics and speak about the market and the situations that the trader may find themselves in, working by the Pump and Dump system. In more detail, you can read about trading by the Pump and Dump system in my previous article.

About Pump and Dump

I would like to note that the market is quite loyal to the traders using this system. Well, in fact, the traders who trade at a decline, restore the balance of the stock price. It is just important to choose the stocks for trading responsibly, analyzing the financial situation of the company and its perspectives of growth.

Of course, some young developing companies may not be profitable from the start. Earlier, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) was also one of such companies. Many stockholders wanted to sell Tesla stocks because 7 years after the IPO the company kept suffering losses and no one believed it could reach its current level. However, in this circumstances we must realize that the money the company received was spent on increasing production and its own development, while the demand for electrocars kept exceeding production. That is why it is very risky to take a short position with such stocks at the start.

Plus Therapeutics: 1427 USD in 10 days

I am going to tell you about my experience in trading by the Pump and Dump strategy, when I ignored the rules and admitted an early entry to the position.

In the summer 2019, the Screener on the Finviz website showed me the stock of Plus Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: PSTV). This company invents medicines for cancer treatment and other diseases. On August 15th, a report for the 2nd quarter of 2019 was published; the company’s management voiced its readiness to present the protocol of the second stage of clinical trials of the DocePLUS medicine in the second half of 2019. The management was looking for partners for the promotion of the new medicine.

On the one hand, the company remained losing, though the losses decreased, and the new medicine could bring them a profit. That is why I did not risk opening short positions; instead, I decided to watch the situation and the reaction of other traders to the news. Also, I paid attention to the behavior of the stock earlier. Note that almost all situations of steep price growth ended up in even steeper declines.



The situation in question was no exception. Two days later, the stock was trading 50% lower than their extremes. I thought I had missed a good opportunity but 5 days later the stock of this company reappeared on the Screener, and I realized I was to use the situation.

Catch Your Smash Day with Larry Williams

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Traders,

In this article, we will discuss the trading methods of a famous exchange trader Larry Williams. His expertise is confirmed by his victory in a prestigious world futures championship Robbins World Cup with a phenomenal result — over 11000% profit in a year.

How to trade a Smash Day?

The Smash Day trading pattern by Larry Williams suggests that the current impulse of the price movement has a higher possibility of a reversal after on the chart, there appears a highly volatile day closing above/below the last extremes. Such a trading day is called "smash" (or reversal) because it precedes a change in the current price direction.

When a Smash Day forms, the market leaps up- or downwards, closing behind the previous highs/lows. At this moment, all the traders that were late for market entry try to catch the last train, counting on the continuation of the movement. However, their hopes will not come true if the next day the price goes in the opposite direction and forms a Smash Day reversal pattern.

A Smash Day to buy

This is a day of increased volatility in a descending price movement that closes below the low of the previous session. Such a day can cover up the lows of the previous 3 to 8 days. If the next day the price starts moving in the opposite direction and renews the high of the Smash Day in the end — you can open a position to buy with an SL below the low of the Smash Day.

This is a reversal pattern but you may not necessarily trade a Smash Day counter a strong trend. To my mind, it is perfect when this pattern finishes a correction to an uptrend. For example, if the daily trend is ascending, there is a descending correction on H1 or H4, finished by a Smash Day to buy. When the correction is over, we open a position to but in the direction of the main (daily) uptrend.



A Smash Day to sell

Same with the previous one, this reversal pattern forms when there emerges a day of increased volatility on the market — in an ascending price movement this time. The day is closed at the top of the trading range above the previous high. The next day, the price starts going down actively. After the minimum of the Smash Day is renewed, we open a position to sell, with an SL behind the high.

How to Trade Support and Resistance Levels

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Traders,

Horizontal support and resistance levels are at the base of classical tech analysis. Many traders despise such a simple instrument and avoid spending their time on studying the basics of graphic analysis. However, the influence of the horizontal levels on the price movements is hard to deny.

Any trend is a sequence of support and resistance levels, so we can see tests and breakouts of such important areas every day. I recommend paying attention to this aspect of analysis and studying this instrument to be able to detect these levels.



Putting it very simply, near the support level you should buy while at the test of the resistance area, you should sell.

What is the support level?

In theory, a support level is an area below the current market price where the players can buy; this area is highly probable to remain under the pressure of sellers. T the moment of testing the support level, the prices push off it and start growing; hence, the pressure from sellers shrinks as they cannot secure under the level to continue the decline. We can say that buyers are stronger.



As a rule, such levels can be detected on the chart beforehand. We can use both the daily and hourly charts. However, experienced traders say that longer timeframes are more important. For example, a support level on D1 will be much stronger than the support level on M5.

On D1, the prices can be testing the support level for weeks before the bears manage to push the price down. As for M5, one test may be enough to secure below this level and move to the next one.

How to Trade Trendlines?

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Traders,

Trendlines pertain to classic tech analysis. Many traders add such lines to their strategy, using them not only on the price charts but also on the indicator graphs. We can say that a trendline is one of the simplest instruments used for chart analysis. At the same time, regardless of its simplicity, this instrument is highly efficient.

Trendlines can show where to enter in the direction of the trend and where the current trend might end. The analysis of the price chart itself is a good advantage: there is an opinion that signals from the indicator are lagging, and it is the price that is of special importance. However, we must keep it in mind that all trading options must be customized, and various ways of using both graphic analysis instruments and indicator signals should be tried.

Ascending trendline

An ascending trendline is a line drawn through the lows from left to right. The second low must be higher than the first one. To draw the line, two points suffice.

Many authors single out the third point as the confirmation that the trendline has been drawn right. However, at the moment when the price touches the line, many traders try buying already, not waiting for the confirmation. As a rule, buying at a bounce off the trendline always happens with a small Stop Loss, so the risk is not that high. That is why most traders somewhat neglect the confirmation.



As an example, let us look at the trendline on the chart of the Litecoin. To draw it, we take two marginal lows and draw a line through them. It is important to extend the line to the right so that we could see the moment of testing this line by the price. In our example, at the moment of testing the trendline, the price bounces and goes on growing. We can say that the uptrend continues until the trendline is broken.

Descending trendline

A descending trendline is drawn through highs. To draw it, we need two points on the chart, the second one being lower than the first one.

Here, we should also remember that it is wise to wait for the third line to form and confirm that the descending trendline has been drawn right. Anyway, we should remember that drawing trendlines is an art and thus subjective. That is why different traders can draw different lines that are important to them. The more experienced the trader is, the better they draw the lines.

Trading with ZigZag: Settings and Use

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Traders,

In this review, we will discuss a popular indicator called ZigZag. This indicator makes it easier to interpret charts, showing important price changes, and helps to carry out tech analysis.

What is ZigZag and is it helpful?

ZigZag is quite a popular indicator featured by many trading platforms, including MT4 and MT5. The indicator is a broken line linking lows and highs on the price chart. As long as ZigZag is drawn through the most important highs and lows, it is very easy to use for price chart analysis.

ZigZag links highs and lows on the chart in accordance with the settings. It must be kept in mind that the last line of the indicator remains incomplete until the last high or low is formed.

ZigZag helps analyze the price movement on the chart. Traders who use Elliott waves in their strategy, often use ZigZag as well to identify waves. It helps to filter minor "noise" on the chart and to define current wave structure (motive or corrective).

Also, ZigZag will help define the actual trend and draw trendlines. With it, it is easier to find technical support and resistance levels, price and tech analysis patterns. As a rule, ZigZag supplements tech analysis or helps find trading signals along with other indicators.



Characteristics and settings

On popular trading platforms MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5, ZigZag is applied on the chart of an instrument via the Main menu: Insert - Indicators - User - ZigZag.

A standard ZigZag has three main settings.

Turtle Strategy: the Oldest Way of Trading

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Traders,

Nowadays, there are plenty of strategies and trading systems. Some are simple, some are very complicated, with lots of indicators. You can also work out your approach to market analysis, using the instruments of tech analysis, such as trendlines or support and resistance levels. Anyway, a good system is not necessarily complicated, with a long list of rules.

A good example is the Turtle system, designed by Richard Dennis in the 1980s. What is more, having a bet with his partner, he gathered a group of beginners and helped them become professional traders. However, it is not to forget that even a high-quality trading system does not guarantee you a profit. It is important to comply with the rules of money management and follow your strategy.

Unfortunately, not all traders make a profit on the same charts and the same timeframes. This shows that the success of trading does not fully depend on the chosen system - much depends on the personality of the trader. One trader will doubt and skip a trade, while another will enter the market even after a series of losing trades.

Description of the Turtle trading system

The system is a trend strategy for daily charts. This is not surprising: earlier, many traders used the Moving Average, trying to catch strong trend movements. For example, a divergence on the MACD is a good signal, working perfectly in a flat, but as soon as a strong trend begins, the prices simply move in one direction, and such a trend may be very quick. In this situation, the MACD signals may not be very efficient, and the MAs will make us hold the positions in the direction of this movement as long as possible, which will bring us a good profit.



The main approach of the Turtle strategy is simple: you only need to let the profit grow and close losing trades. This looks like a simple rule, but not many can follow it. What is more, psychologically, any person maximally hopes for a positive result.

For example, if a beginner trader loses part of the profit, they may be very disappointed and will try to close the position with a minimal profit as quickly as possible, even if the system does not give any exit signal. And if the beginner receives a losing position, they may hold it for a long time, hoping for a soon reversal.

Getting Acquainted with CCI Indicator

Author: Victor Gryazin



Dear Traders,

In this review, we will discuss an interesting technical indicator CCI (Commodity Channel Index). This indicator helps to find an approaching correction or reversal on the price chart.

What is CCI needed for?

The CCI (Commodity Channel Index) indicator was invented in 1980 by a trader Donald Lambert. The author meant his indicator for commodity markets, however, it may successfully be used on other financial markets, such as currency, stock, etc.

The CCI indicator measures the value and the amplitude of price deviations from average values. Large CCI values mean that the price is much higher than average and small values indicate that it has fallen significantly. In essence, CCI may be attributed to the group of classic oscillators.

The indicator helps to understand in what condition the financial instrument currently is: overbought or oversold. CCI measures the distance between the price and a set Moving Average - this is just another way to say that the indicator measures the deviation of the price from its average values.

The CCI indicator is situated in a separate window under the price chart and consists of the main line (CCI) and two areas - oversold and overbought. The indicator values vary from -300% to +300%. At the levels of -100% and +100% signal lines are drawn, setting the oversold (from -100% and below) and overbought (from +100% and higher) areas; the central spine of the indicator is 0%.



Calculation formula and settings

The CCI indicator is built in most popular trading terminals. It is represented in a separate window under the price chart. In popular platforms MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5, CCI is added to the price chart via the Main Menu: Insert - Indicators - User - CCI.

For CCI calculation, you must first find the so-called "typical price".

Andrew's Pitchfork - Efficient Graphic Instrument

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Traders,

Andrew's Pitchfork is an instrument of graphic analysis based on the middle trendline and an equidistant channel. Unfortunately, this method of trading and analysis is not very popular among traders; however, it seems to be perfect for drawing a channel quickly and trading bounces off and breakouts of its borders.

Many traders try to draw such channels themselves based on price movements, and ofter change the rules of drawing depending on the situation. In the case of using Andrew's Pitchfork, the rules never change, regardless of any market movements, so the trader does not need to choose or customize such channels depending on the market conditions.

How to add Andrew's Pitchfork to the chart?

The instrument is available in the standard settings of MetaTrader 4. To use the indicator, just click Insert on the terminal and choose Andrew's Pitchfork. Then, choose three points to draw the channel, and it will become available on the price chart.



As a rule, the first point is the beginning of the trend, the second point is the high from which a correction has started (if we are speaking about an uptrend) and the third point is the low where the falling has stopped.



If there is a downtrend on the chart, then the second point will be the low from which the growth has begun, and the third point will be the high where the prices reversed and falling has started.

Author: Timofey Zuev



Dear Traders,

Forex is quite a complicated business sphere. Hence, many traders struggle for a long time on this market. One solution that may help you yield your first stable results is a maximally formalized trading strategies, the Synergy strategy being one example.

Description of Synergy

This strategy may be used not only on Forex but also on futures and stock markets if there are indicators for the respective trading terminals. For Synergy, timeframes from M1 to MN are suitable, however, I would recommend using it on a longer timeframe, such as H4. I must admit that this strategy works well only on strong movements without pullbacks.

Synergy desktop



The desktop of the strategy looks as follows:

1. the levels of the Trader Dynamic Index indicator; level 50 acts as a filter for Synergy signals.
2. Market Base Line, the main line of Trader Dynamic Index, below which no signal to buy and above it - no signal to sell may form, by Synergy.
3. Volatility Bands.
4. Trade Signal Line, the line that crosses with the signal line most often.
5. RSI Price Line, the main signal line of the strategy that creates a part of Synergy trading signals by crossing the Trader Dynamic Index.
6. 5-period Smoothed Moving Average, built on High.
7. 5-period Smoothed Moving Average, built on Low.
8. bullish candlesticks by Heiken Ashi.
9. bearish candlesticks by Heiken Ashi.

A Synergy signal to buy for Forex, stocks, and futures

As it should be in a maximally formalized strategy, all rules of opening a long position are unequivocal. Here is the list of conditions for opening a buying position by Synergy:

  • a bullish Heiken Ashi candlestick must close above the 5-day Smoothed Moving Average (High);
  • the RSI Price Line must simultaneously be above the following three lines: the Trade Signal Line, Market Base Line, and level 50 of the Trader Dynamic Index.

Black arrows indicate the candlesticks at the closing of which all the above-mentioned requirements were fulfilled.

The Woodies CCI Strategy: Trading Without Price Charts

Author: Andrey Goilov



Dear Traders,

This trading method, created by Ken Wood, is a very simple system. It is even said that for using this method successfully, trading by the rules suggested by the author is enough. Earlier, we described the Turtle system, in which some students had also failed to succeed because they ignored some rules and skipped signals. Here, Woodie offers a whole set of rules: the trader only needs to follow them.

The work consists of searching for graphic patterns, drawing trendlines, and watching the breakouts of horizontal lines right on the indicator chart. I must note that we can do something similar with the RSI: we draw trendlines and receive leading signals in the case of a breakout right on the indicator chart; on the MACD, we search for graphic patterns, such as Head and Shoulders.

Description of the Woodies CCI indicator

Initially, the system was meant for trading CFDs, but with time traders started using it for other market types as well. Likewise, many other systems were originally designed for the stock market but are now successfully used on Forex or the crypto market.



The system is based on two CCI indicators with different parameters. The instrument itself uses the cycles of price movements — in detail, you can read about the CCI in this blogpost. For the Woodies CCI strategy, the author takes two indicators with periods 14 and 6 and places them in one window. The first chart is called CCI and the second one — CCI Turbo. The latter is used for finding entry and exit signals.

Defining the trend with Woodies CCI

The system is meant for trend markets, hence, trades are opened in the direction of the prevailing trend. To define the trend, the system uses a histogram.



If the bars are above zero and green, the trend is ascending. If they are below zero and red, the trend is descending. Note that the color of the bars does not change right after crossing zero; six subsequent bars above or below zero are required for the color to change.

Elliott Wave Theory and Practice. Part 1

Author: Dmitriy Gurkovskiy



Dear Traders,

If the market were a linear structure, and we could detect the end of one trend and the beginning of the next one with 99% exactness, as well as to detect the target area of its development, then trading would be the easiest and most profitable business in the world.

Unfortunately, things are quite different. Of course, a long history of trading and market studies has taught us to define reversals more or less precisely, as well as calculate the expected length of the trend; however, for many traders, this is not enough. A great number of analysis techniques and methods helps a trader or analyst feel confident on the market; however, problems emerge when it comes to one's personal ability to apply those techniques to practice. Many do it well, but the majority, with their primitive remakes, end up stuck in a network of locks, trying to get untangled from useless positions.

Having studied several methods and applied them to practice, many get disappointed, not receiving the desired result, but never give up and keep looking for that one precise method. Sooner or later, many come to the Elliott Wave Theory because, in it, they see that method of market structure analysis that can virtually predict the future with a high level of precision. Their hopes are not void, as experts in the theory have repeatedly demonstrated astonishing results in trading and analysis. So, this article is devoted to Wave market analysis and the Wave Theory. We will get acquainted with the history of its appearance and development, its main statements and rules of analysis.

So, this article is devoted to Wave market analysis and the Wave Theory. We will get acquainted with the history of its appearance and development, its main statements and rules of analysis.

History of the Elliott Wave Principle

In the preface to his book about the Elliott Wave Principle, Hamilton Bolton wrote that he noted the efficacy of the Elliott Wave Principle in such unpredictable economic events as the depression, the great war, the recuperation after the war and the subsequent significant growth. Hence, he became sure that the Principle had fundamental significance.

The one to discover the wave principle of market development and formation was a US economist Ralph Nelson Elliott. Due to an illness that made him remain in bed, he could not find a decent occupation for a long time and got interested in technical analysis for trading on the stock market.

After a long period of studies, in 1938, he published a book called "The Wave Principle", in which he described the basics of the principles of market movement formation that he had discovered.
