Image on the left represents what many users in the private chat room were able to see via screen sharing as a price action only trader that did not use indicators...

I took a quick screenshot for marketing purposes, for my own private trade journal documentation (other two monitors not shown) and for verification that I traded on that specific trading day I posted real-time trades in the chat room for those that were not in the chat room or not allowed in the screen sharing for whatever reason with others that were allowed.

I have many images like this of different trading days distributed on different webpages here at my website and at my forum via screen sharing just in case someone says they didn't see any verification about price action trading without indicators.


Price Action Trading EducationSimple definition: Price action trading is a trader that does not use technical indicators or technical studies for trade decisions based upon price action analysis.

The above is a simple definition of price action only trading (no technical indicators). Unfortunately, there's a growing number of traders the past few years that use one technical indicator with a commonly known price action method and then believe in error that it's price action trading under the facade they're using the indicator only as a "visual aid or to help put the price action within a framework". In fact, it doesn't matter what type of technical indicator it is (e.g. cci, stoc, macd, moving average et cetera)...if it's on your chart to help you make trade can not call yourself a price action trader until you've completely remove all technical indicators or technical studies from your trading.

In addition, arguably, some pure price action traders consider the use of volume as an indicator while others do not. Regardless, I'm not going to play the technical indicator or volume bashing game because they are distractions that serious price action only traders should not be involved with.

Therefore, just be careful of those traders, authors, vendors that say they are price action traders while they show a technical indicator on their charts (e.g. cci, stoc, macd, moving average et cetera) because learning such a method will continue making you dependent upon technical indicators via the belief you can improve the price action method by making changes to the indicator whenever you fail to reach your performance goals.

There are primarily three basic groups of traders that are price action trading.

  Traders that use charts...sometimes this is refer to as chart reading of price patterns or chart analysis of key price areas without indicators

  Traders that use time & sales/bid & ask screens...sometimes this is refer to as tape reading or DOM trading (e.g. scalpers) involving order flow without charts  

  Traders that use both of the above as in charts and time & sales/bid & ask screens without indicators

Further, for each of the above types of traders...there are hundreds of different types of price action trade methods. In addition, if you're using charts as a price action're using technical analysis even though you're not using technical indicators. In contrast, price action traders that are tape readers do not consider themselves to be using technical analysis.

With that said, the methods of are price action trading (no indicators nor studies) involving chart analysis...there's no DOM analysis in price action trade methods by TheStrategyLab due to the heavy presence of HFT and algorithm trading firms. Also, there's no volume analysis within our price action trade methods because our price action clients can easily see the volume in the price action itself after learning WRB identifies and exploits the following to produce key price areas to look for price strong continuation/swing point price action signals:

  Key changes in supply/demand (supply demand analysis)

  Key changes in volatility (volatility analysis)

WRB Analysis is the foundation of our price action trade signal methods and it only involves chart reading. It provides the critical context prior to the appearance of our trade signals...allowing us to view the price action beyond trade signals. In fact, after identifying the above key price areas...we call these areas WRB Zones that convert into support/resistance zones when the price action enters the zone. However, we're not going to use this webpage to teach WRB Analysis. Thus, if you're curious to learn more about WRB Analysis via studying tutorial chapters 1, 2 and can download the free study guide at the below link.

WRB Analysis Tutorials 

This is a discretionary market analysis via rule-based price action patterns involving 3 basic tutorial chapters and 9 advance tutorial chapters that provides the understanding of the price action prior to the appearance of any trade strategy (entry signals) you may be using. More importantly, the WRB Analysis gives the context (understanding of the price action) that allows it to be merged with any other trade signal method regardless if you're using bar charts, candlestick charts, tick charts or volume base charts. In fact, most of our clients use WRB Analysis to improve the performance of other well known methods their using after realizing they were still missing a piece of the puzzle.

WRB Analysis tutorial chapters are applicable for any stocks, futures, exchange traded funds and forex currencies on any time frame that has WRB intervals, WRB Hidden GAP intervals as defined in the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide and the Advance WRB Analysis Tutorial Chapters.

In fact, our trade signal strategies do in fact involve intermarket analysis and intramarket analysis for traders trading futures. These two particular analysis are the next level of education/application after the client has mastered the basic education resources of TheStrategyLab. Intermarket analysis and intramarket analysis gives more trade opportunities and helps our clients adapt to other correlated trading instruments if/when they determine its time to change trading instruments via confirmation of their backtesting. Simply, we do not trade via single market approach.

Therefore, if you apply our price action trade signal strategies to any trading instruments not listed above, it will be very difficult for us to provide you with proper support and our refund policy is only applicable for our trade strategies and not for WRB Analysis Tutorials due to the fact that clients that only purchase our WRB Analysis Tutorial Chapters are using it with their own personal trade signal strategies.

Yet, all clients must verify they've done their due diligence prior to purchase via posting the required DOKs of the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide. Clients that purchase our fee-base education content without posting the required DOKs are first asked for the info after their purchase and if a client ignores our request for the DOKs...the client is then immediately exception.

You can post your DOKs at the free TSL Support Forum @ or you can request a private thread so that you can upload your DOKs to your private thread if you're concerned about security & privacy of your information/data. In fact, most users of TheStrategyLab that post their DOKs are doing such in their private threads.

Also, we reserve the right to request other types of verification after a trader purchases any of our fee-base education resources to help us determine if the new client has done proper due diligence prior to purchase and to protect ourselves as a trader/vendor against those that purchase our fee-base education content via false information about their experience with the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide and other free resources of TheStrategyLab.
