RD Key Levels (Weekly, Daily, Previous vWAP)

The RexDog Key Levels indicator plots the weekly open, daily open, and the previous day vWAP close.

These are all critical price levels (zones) to know when trading any market or instrument. These areas are also high probability reaction areas that you can trade using simple confirmation trading patterns.

First, I'll cover an overview of the indicator then I'll share general usage tips.

  • Weekly Open - default is white/orange. White is when price is above the weekly open. Orange is when price is below the weekly open.
  • Weekly High/Low - there are options to turn on the weekly high and lows. Default plot is circles. Green is the high. Red is the low.
  • Daily Open - default is green/red. Green is when price is above the daily open. Red is when price is below the daily open.
  • Previous vWAPs - aqua single lines. These are the closing price of the daily vWAPs.
  • Top Indicators - The triangles at the top of the chart signify is price is currently above or below the weekly open. This is helpful on lower timeframe charts (5m, 15m) to get a quick indication when price is far extended beyond the weekly open. Green triangle = above weekly open. Red triangle = below weekly open.

General Usage

Each one of these levels are important levels markets look use for continuation or failure of momentum and bias. I also find it extremely helpful to think of these levels as magnets, dual magnets. They both attract and repel price at the same time. Now you might say, how is that helpful to have opposing views at the same time? Be indifferent to direction, create your own rules on when these price zones repel or attract price, I have my own.

Here's the easiest way to use these price levels.

As price approaches one of these levels to expect a reaction. A reaction is price is going in one direction and price hits a price level zone and reacts in the opposite direction.

These are price zones, sometimes you will see a reaction right at the price but visualize these areas as zones of reaction.

A high percentage of the time when price approaches these level zones there will be a reaction. So trade the reaction.

How do you do that?

Simple. Trade patterns that repeat. I have 3 solid patterns I trade around these key levels:

The first pattern is early entry with precise scale in rules and a very effective protective stop loss placement.

The second pattern is wait for confirmation that the level holds. This requires more patience and for you to fully trust the chart. The benefit of this pattern is with confirmation you have even more precise stop placement.

There is a bonus third pattern I trade around these levels. I call this the confirmation and bluff entry. It's a combination of both of the patterns above. You wait for confirmation but on any pull back you call the bluff on the market and enter on key test. Trade management here is critical. In addition to the pattern you trade you should have a series of failure patterns that tell you to get out of the trade, I use 2 primary failure patterns.

I trade all markets, same system, same rules, so I'll show a few examples.

Usually I start with Bitcoin but let's start with equities:

BA - Boeing - 8 Trades

Here we see weekly low patterns, previous week low test, vwAP hold patterns, day magnets and day holding. Then 2 week failures and a double hold pattern.

These are all straightforward trades to execute following really simple patterns.

BTCUSD Previous vWAP and Day Open Trades

We see here on the circle areas both daily open and previous day vWAP zone tests. Within this chart are all 3 highly effective patterns I trade.

SPY - 7 High Probability Trades

Here we see a pDay vWAP mixed with a daily failure. Next a daily retest, then a pDay vWAP failure, then a vWAP capture and test. Then a double weekly failure test (great trade there) and finally a daily test.

I could provide more examples but most are just derivatives of the above examples.
