Finding Entry Opportunity using Volume Spread Analysis in Trading

In this article, I am going to discuss Finding Entry Opportunity using Volume Spread Analysis in Trading. Please read our previous article, where we discussed Volume Spread Analysis in detail. At the end of this article, you will understand the following pointers.

  1. Finding support and resistance based on volume spread analysis
  2. Testing (most important concept of volume spread analysis)
  3. Entry opportunity based on testing
Finding Support and Resistance

Risk to reward is favour when we trade from support or resistance level. Generally trade entry types are

  1. Reversal from support or resistance zone
  2. Pullback entry after some retracement
  3. Breakout of support and resistance
SUPPORT

Support as the “buying, actual or potential, sufficient in DEMAND to halt a downtrend in prices for an appreciable period.” and possibly reverse it , start prices moving up again

What are SUPPORT AND RESISTANCE?

RESISTANCE

Resistance, as the selling, actual or potential, in sufficient supply to keep prices from rising for a time. and possibly turn back, its uptrend

Finding support and resistance based on volume spread analysis

How to find support and resistance zone?
  • Rejection from an area
  • Flipping zone
  • Fibonacci retracement

These are the Support and Resistance zone from where we have to find opportunity for trading. Generally trade entry types are

  1. Reversal from support or resistance zone
  2. Pullback entry after some retracement
  3. Breakout of support and resistance

Volume Spread Analysis in Trading using Entry Opportunity

So the support and resistance for day trading is
  • Weak Highs/Lows.
  • Previous Day’s High/Low
  • Day high or low
Testing

Most important concept of volume spread analysis

What is testing?
  • Test is required to confirm a trend
  • Usually, a successful test tells you that the market is ready to move immediately, while a higher volume test usually results in a temporary move, and will be re-test of the same price area again at a later time.
  • Important support and resistance point for testing include Weak Highs/Lows.Previous Days High/Low and day high / low
Why do we place such importance on this action?

Lets discussed for an uptrend (all concept opposite for down trend)

Test is employed to make sure that all the selling (supply) pressure has been absorbed in the accumulation phase, and this is done with a test of supply.

Many times the smart money is just testing the strength of either buyers or sellers. Usually above or below important reference points. As smart money don’t want 2 things to happen

  1. If they don’t find any supply below or demand above an important reference then they are confident to move the prices in the opposite direction of the test.
  2. But if they do find it, then they usually follow-through and test the next reference for the same
Our entry decision is depend open the test

So our entry decision is depend open the test from this support and resistance zone

  • Rejection from an area
  • Flipping zone
  • Fibonacci retracement
TESTING SUPPLY (opposite for demand)

Rule: Too much supply the market will fall, if there is no more supply the market must go up

Testing types (DEPEND OPEN THE SUPPORT AND RESITACE ZONE TYPE)
  1. Test in a Rising Market – Test in an up trending market (trending )
  2. Test after Temporary Weakness – Also seen in an up trending market –(PULLBACK)
  3. Test into an area of High Supply – Testing into the area of Stopping Volume or Selling Climax (reversal or absorption)
Test variation
  • Single candle test
  • Swing test
SINGLE CANDLE TEST
Testing supply in uptrend

Characteristics

  • In a bullish trending market
  • A down bar, on reduced volume and narrow spread
  • The key is the volume. It should be less than the previous candle
  • Closes can be on the highs, but better when in the middle or near the high
  • A successful low volume test tells you that the market is ready to rise immediately

SINGLE CANDLE TEST What is testing? Why do we place such importance on this action?

Entry after seeing no supply candle in a uptrend
  • No Supply candle means that there is lack of supply and demand is overpowering supply causing price to rise in future.
  • Please note that No Supply candle is a continuation signal not a reversal signal.
  • The background is important here, this is only an entry to the long side if you have strength in the background, not weakness means if it is appears after bullish momentum
  1. Since we have the Bullish momentum. We can go long during uptrend whenever no Supply Signal appears
  2. When you see No Supply with climactic action in the background this indicates higher prices so enter a buy order above the high of the no supply candle

Entry after seeing no supply candle in a uptrend Our entry decision is depend open the test

SWING TEST FOR REVERSAL

When the market is testing supply any down-move dipping into an area or price range where there was previous high volume (previous selling), which then returns to close on, or near the high, on lower volume, is a clear signal to expect higher prices immediately. This is a successful test. Lower volume depicts that the amount of trading that took place on the mark-down was reduced, that now there is less selling, when previously there had been a lot of selling. At this point, it is now important to see how the market- reacts to the strength seen in the testing.

SWING TEST FOR REVERSAL

Characteristic of SWING testing candle
  1. A down bar, on reduced volume and narrow spread
  2. The key is the volume. It should be less than the previous two bars
  3. Closes can be on the lows, but better when in the middle or near the high
  4. Follows a Sign of Strength (selling climax or stopping volume)

Characteristic of SWING testing candle Finding Entry Opportunity using Volume Spread Analysis in Trading Testing types (DEPEND OPEN THE SUPPORT AND RESITACE ZONE TYPE)

ENTRY AFTER SEEING SWING TEST

YOU MUST have strength in the background, such as stopping volume or selling cliamx. Place a stop under the low of the climactic bar and place a buy order above the test bar. A test can fail and you can re-test an area several times before the market moves up, so placing an order above the test lets the market come to you. If the test fails you are not in the position.

ENTRY AFTER SEEING SWING TEST

Result based on testing volume
  • LOW VOLUME TEST
  • HIGH VOLUME TEST

If there is still too much supply a test can fail and if you see a failed test in a weak market it confirms that the market will continue to fall.

If the stock recovers towards the high and the volume is low it would mean that there was no supply. If the volume is high and if the price fails to recover it would mean that there still supply present.

Result based on testing volume

Low volume test

When the market is testing supply any down move dipping into an area or price range where there was previous high volume (previous selling ), which then returns to close on, or near the high, on lower volume, is a clear signal to expect higher prices immediately. This is a successful test.

Lower volume depicts that the amount of trading that took place on the mark-down was reduced, that now there is less selling, when previously there had been a lot of selling. At this point, it is now important to see how the market- reacts to the strength seen in the testing.

With the test now confirmed the insiders can move the market higher to the target distribution level, confident that all the old selling has now been absorbed

Low volume test

What price action should follow after successful test ?

If you are in a bearish market, you may see at times, what appears to be a successful test? However, if the market does not respond to what is normally an indication of strength after a successful test , then this shows further weakness.

Any testing that does not respond immediately with higher prices, or certainly during the next candle or so, can be considered an indication of weakness. If it were a true sign of strength, the smart money would have stepped in and would be buying the market – the result of this smart money support would be the beginnings of an upward trending market .The specialist or smart money is never going to fight the market. If, in smart money view, the market is still weak on these days, he will withdraw from trading. The market will then be reluctant to go up, even if it looks as if it should go up, because there was little or no selling on the ‘test’ candle

What price action should follow after successful test ? How to Finding Entry Opportunity using Volume Spread Analysis in Trading

High volume test

However, what if the test fails and instead of low volume appearing there is high volume, which is a problem. This has resulted in sellers returning in large numbers and forcing the price lower.

While a higher volume test usually results in a temporary move, and will be re-test of the same price area again at a later time. This action sometimes results in a “W/M” pattern. This volume price action is sometimes referred to as a “double bottom (W)/double top (M)”. The “W” shape volume price action results from the action of re-testing an area that had too much supply before. Vice a versa for “M” pattern
