In the second reaction, price decreases by a similar amount as in Reaction 1, but on smaller spreads and lower volume, indicative of reduced supply, which in turn suggests the potential for at least a short-term rally. Richard Wyckoff established key principles on tops, bottoms, trends, and tape reading in the early decades of the 20 th century. Then the decreasing tops within the upper range signal that the market might be entering a Distribution.

These laws inform the analysis of every chart and the selection of every stock to trade.
Making Money The Wyckoff Way (CSC, DNR)
It is an example of a bear trap because the drop below support appears to signal resumption of the downtrend. In the first, we see prices falling on a number of wide-spread yrading and volume increasing.
As we pointed to earlier, high volumes can lead to sustained price moves on the chart — the Result. Wyckoff proposed a heuristic device to help understand price movements in individual stocks and the market as a whole: The appearance of a SOS shortly after a spring or shakeout validates the analysis.
Re-accumulation phases interrupt markup with small consolidation patterns, while he calls steeper pullbacks corrections. Bulls are slowing gaining power and as a result, they are poised to push prices higher. His pioneering approach to technical analysis has survived into the mdthod era, guiding traders and investors on the best ways to pick winning stocks, the most advantageous times to buy them, and the most effective risk management techniques.
Modern Wyckoff practitioners can utilize the Relative Strength Ratio between a stock and a market proxy to compare points of strength and weakness. This confirms that the market might be accumulating at this point. Conventional wisdom of much technical analysis and basic economic theory accepts one of the obvious insights of the law of Supply and Demand: The actual trade comes when the mehtod action breaks the range in the direction of the expected move.
The school's central offering was a course integrating the concepts that Wyckoff had learned about how to identify large operators' accumulation and distribution of stock, and how to take positions in harmony with these big players. So, the big volume bar is the effort of the market players to gain dominance.
In phase B, institutions and large professional interests are accumulating relatively low-priced inventory in anticipation of the tradint markup.
A wave of buying easily pushes prices up; this is further fueled by short covering. Richard Demille Wyckoff — was an early 20th-century pioneer in the technical approach to studying the stock market.
The Markdown process comes as a downtrend begins after the Distribution phase. AAPL is starting to outperform the market by making a higher high at point 5 and higher low at 6 relative to the market, which is making a lower high at point 5 and a lower low at point 6.
The spring is often associated with stop running, wherein institutions push wyxkoff to obvious stop loss areas to find the required liquidity to fulfill their orders. Horizontal lines may be drawn to help focus attention on market behavior, as in the two Accumulation Schematics, above.
After a UT, price often tests the lower boundary of the TR. Understanding the different stages within the price cycle will allow you to position for the next most likely price tendency.
Take for example the Accumulation and Distribution stages. Below you will find a sketch illustrating the concepts of the Wyckoff Price Cycle: These increments in counts should trding based on phases corresponding to specific Wyckoff events within the TR.
The Wyckoff Method: A Tutorial [ChartSchool]
The extent of accumulation or distribution determines the cause that unfolds in the subsequent move out wyckfof the TR. If you are not sure about a specific issue, drop it and move on to the next. Rather, trends unfold through a broad array of similar price patterns that show infinite variations mthod size, detail, and extension, with each incarnation changing just enough from prior versions to surprise and confuse market participants.
It reverses the decreasing volume tendency. These simple examples belie the extent of the subtleties and nuances of such analysis. Accumulation Schematic 1 depicts a spring, while Accumulation Schematic 2 shows a TR without a spring.
In case of three-point or five-point charts, the same count line should be used as for one-point charts. This phase is where the bears are attempting to regain authority over the market.
This assessment should help you decide whether to be in the market at all, and if so, whether to take long or short positions.
