IFTA: Analyzing and Trading Markets Using the Wyckoff Method

Part 1

About the Pre­sen­ta­ti­on - Part 1
Bruce Fraser and Roman Bogo­ma­zov, both natio­nal­ly reco­gni­zed experts who teach the Wyck­off Method of tra­ding and inves­t­ing at the Gol­den Gate Uni­ver­si­ty, will descri­be in detail seve­ral prac­ti­cal tra­ding tools ori­gi­nal­ly deve­lo­ped by Richard D. Wyck­off a cen­tu­ry ago. Many suc­cessful pro­fes­sio­nal and insti­tu­tio­nal trad­ers today rely on Wyckoff’s tim­e­l­ess prin­ci­ples, which were deri­ved from his obser­va­tions of the mar­ket acti­vi­ties of lar­ge ope­ra­tors and legen­da­ry trad­ers, inclu­ding Jes­se Liver­mo­re and James Kee­ne. In an enga­ging inter­ac­ti­ve dia­lo­gue, Bruce and Roman will illus­tra­te how trad­ers can learn to anti­ci­pa­te the future direc­tion of a stock or other secu­ri­ty through ana­ly­sis of:

  • The struc­tu­ral posi­ti­on of the over­all mar­ket and spe­ci­fic equi­ties in rela­ti­on to trends or tra­ding ranges
  • Stock and indus­try com­pa­ra­ti­ve and rela­ti­ve strength
  • Sup­p­ly and demand con­fir­ma­ti­on of direc­tion­al bias

The­se vete­ran ins­truc­tors and trad­ers will also dis­cuss tac­tics that one can use in dif­fe­rent pha­ses of tra­ding ran­ges and trends. Trad­ers of all levels of skill and expe­ri­ence will enjoy and bene­fit from this presentation.

Part 2

About the Pre­sen­ta­ti­on - Part 2
This pre­sen­ta­ti­on is the second in a three-part series on the Wyck­off Method pre­sen­ted by Bruce Fraser and Roman Bogo­ma­zov. In Part 1, they descri­bed seve­ral powerful mar­ket tech­ni­ques ori­gi­nal­ly deve­lo­ped by legen­da­ry ana­lyst and trader Richard D. Wyck­off. In Part 2, Bruce and Roman will pre­sent a detail­ed case stu­dy illus­t­ra­ting how to ana­ly­ze charts bar-by-bar as they unfold over time, using fun­da­men­tal tools of the Wyck­off tech­ni­ci­an. They will focus spe­ci­fi­cal­ly on: (i) Struc­tu­ral Pri­ce Ana­ly­sis and Sup­p­ly and Demand Ana­ly­sis (also known as Volu­me Pri­ce Ana­ly­sis), (ii) how com­bi­ning the­se two ana­ly­ti­cal approa­ches can unveil excel­lent, high-pro­ba­bi­li­ty tra­ding oppor­tu­ni­ties, and (iii) tra­ding tac­tics to con­sider when the­se oppor­tu­ni­ties (both ent­ries and exits) arise.

This in-depth case stu­dy will demons­tra­te how Struc­tu­ral Pri­ce Ana­ly­sis used in con­junc­tion with Sup­p­ly and Demand Ana­ly­sis can help trad­ers effec­tively anti­ci­pa­te a stock’s future pri­ce direc­tion, both short- and lon­ger-term. Trad­ers of all levels of skill and expe­ri­ence will enjoy and bene­fit from this presentation.

About the Pre­sen­ta­ti­on -Part 3
This is the final ses­si­on in a three-part series on the Wyck­off Method pre­sen­ted by Bruce Fraser and Roman Bogo­ma­zov. Pre­vious­ly they descri­bed basic mar­ket ana­ly­ti­cal and tra­ding prac­ti­ces deve­lo­ped by legen­da­ry char­tist and trader Richard D. Wyck­off, and illus­tra­ted in a detail­ed case stu­dy how the­se tech­ni­ques can be appli­ed using bar charts.

During this pre­sen­ta­ti­on, Bruce and Roman will demons­tra­te how to:

  • Con­s­truct a Wyck­off-style P&F chart;
  • App­ly Wyck­off P&F count gui­de­lines to esti­ma­te pri­ce tar­gets and reward/risk rati­os of poten­ti­al trades;
  • Ana­ly­ze pha­ses on P&F charts to pre­dict short- and lon­ger-term pri­ce objectives;
  • Time ent­ries to coin­ci­de with a stock’s rea­di­ness to move out of a tra­ding range;
  • Use “step­ping stone” con­so­li­da­ti­ons to con­firm pri­ce tar­gets and iden­ti­fy when a pri­or trend will resu­me; and
  • Com­bi­ne P&F and bar chart ana­ly­sis to refi­ne trade ent­ries and exits.

The­se appli­ca­ti­ons of P&F charts are uni­que to the Wyck­off Method, and pro­vi­de an excep­tio­nal­ly infor­ma­ti­ve com­ple­ment to bar chart ana­ly­sis. Trad­ers of all levels of skill and expe­ri­ence will bene­fit from and enjoy this presentation.
