Wyckoff on Renko


Recommended Posts

Quick study on Wyckoff using Renko charts which are particularly good at highlighting the basic principles of price behaviour as described in the Wyckoffian Logic chart and demonstrated on the Renko 5 point block charts below.

The key start point is supply and demand levels, this is where periods of consolidation tend to form, where buyers and sellers are evenly matched and price has no reason to move. At some point there will come an inequality and price will be forced to move to a new level either up or down (range expansion) to again match buyers to sellers. The Wyckoff model can signal the start of a new range expansion phase from a period of consolidation and highlight the best times to enter a trade to catch the ride (breakout retest, failed dip, continuation breakout). 

I start off with a text description of basic price behaviour which I had posted in another thread recently.  

 

"Your experiences as a new trader are not uncommon and caused by an over reliance on indicators most of which are based on past performance and encourage late execution which carries an increased risk of entrapment. It's worth looking at how price actually behaves to help anticipate what will happen next.

Consider that price can only move up or down between supply and demand levels, if the chart is moving sideways it is time that is moving not price. 

S/D levels tend to be used over again because they are obvious levels on a chart for buyers (demand) and sellers (supply) to congregate.

These levels  are related to support and resistance levels and are identifiable on the chart.

You will know when price is on the move between levels because there will be a series of higher highs and  higher lows (upward range expansion) or lower lows and lower highs (downward range expansion).

So once you have identified the direction of travel and the most likely target areas there only remains finding an opportunity to get in. Using an upward range expansion as an example, that will be either at a failed dip (a higher low) or a break out past the prior higher high.

If the trade takes off trail your stop.

Be ready to disembark at the target level but wait for signs of reversal first because price might just break straight through on towards the next level up instead.

Obviously this is bare bones stuff but a good basis to build on."

 

Key points of the Wyckoff chart;

1/ period of consolidation, often at 'support and resistance' (which is related to 'supply and demand' and 'accumulation and distribution').

2/ retest of rectangle breakout.

3/ failed dips and continuation breakouts on route to next level.

Key points of the Renko charts;

1/ independent of time.

2/ points per block (5 point blocks with tails in this example).

3/ the second Renko chart is to highlight that the same set up can occur repeatedly throughout the day.

4/ increasing the Renko block size has the affect of increasing the time frame where the same patterns can be seen.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
