Joe Rokop will be using his crude VWAP chart to explain the advantages of using a trade-based candlestick vs. a time-based candlestick. The crude VWAP chart can more accurately analyze the effect of the volume being traded in the market by looking inside a typical 5- or 30-minute bar chart. He can then determine how said volume can affect price action and momentum, giving you a distinct advantage over other retail traders. Mr. Rokop will pair this candlestick chart with other indicators such as exponential moving averages, commodity channel index, and more, showing traders how to catch both short- and medium-term price gains in this ever-changing marketplace.
