VSA Scanner

The automatic scanner of Volume Spread Analysis signals combined with Wyckoff methodology. It consists of Climactic signals, Signals Of Weakness (SOW)/Strength (SOS), and Tests confirming earlier signs. It contains an additionally automatic draw of Supply and Demand Zones, Automatic Moving Average (based on Volatility or Volume) that adapts its length accordingly to the current situation in the market.- the script draws only key volume zones by default. In Settings, you can enable drawing more demand and supply zones, although I prefer to set only key zones visibility by default. The script analyzes and shows the critical demand and supply signals: demand signals are below the candle and supply signals above the candle.

There are four categories of signals now marked as below:

  • Cross and Diamond – significant signals predicting possible trend reversal
  • Circle – Signals of Weakness/Strength
  • Triangle – Tests from VSA methodology
  • Flag – is displaying signs when Supply/Demand Zone was broken

The ideal scenario would be:

  1. Cross or Diamond
  2. Circle
  3. Triangle

However, such a combination is not always happening. The individual judgement of traders makes a difference and can turn signals from VSA Scanner into a profitable trade. I recommend strongly (and that’s how I play it) to find alignment with Gamma Levels, which would significantly increase the chances for thriving businesses.
