VSA 101 – Everything You Must Know About VSA

What is VSA?
Volume Spread Analysis (VSA) methodology takes a multi-dimensional approach to analyzing the market, and looks at the relationship between price, spread or range, and volume. VSA is a proprietary market analysis method conceived by veteran trader, Tom Williams, who was a highly successful member of a professional trading syndicate in the 1960s and also the creator of TradeGuider Systems. The VSA method works particularly well at highlighting the imbalances of Supply and Demand.
VSA builds on the pioneering work of Richard D. Wyckoff, a famous 1920’s trader. He based his trading decisions on supply and demand in the markets and how they are inextricably linked to professional activity – ‘Smart Money’ trading (Wyckoff’s principles are still taught at the Golden Gate University in San Francisco). In any business where there is money involved and profits to make, there are professionals. Doctors are collectively known as professionals, but they specialize in certain areas of medicine. The financial markets are no different. The financial markets have professionals that specialize in certain instruments as well: stocks, grains, FOREX, etc. The activity of these professional operators, and more important, their true intentions, are clearly shown on a price chart if the trader knows how to read them. Volume is the major indicator for the professional trader.

Introduction to TradeVSA

Focus on the future

The tough part about investing is that we are trying to make informed decisions based on things that have yet to happen. It’s important to keep in mind that even though we use past data as an indication of things to come, it’s what happens in the future that matters most.
