Momentum Tape Reader Crest (click pics to study)  


[showing: Crest/Trough (generated) Resistance Levels with dBias filtering]



[showing: price applying into 21 point above fence, consolidating and ready for break-out, rising momentum, too late: capped by Trough mLkAhd . . . break-out failure]


[showing: price applying into 21 point below fence, 1st hit should be gold, rising momentum, capped by fence, perfect confluence of resistance . . . break-out failure]



[showing: price applying into 21 point above Fib Vectoring (from prior 21 point), any break-out has to get above Thermometer Cap and run, else it will get caught by the new fib vectoring, which shows immediately following the momentum cap. (Notice in the right corner of the pic, mLkAhd and TmLkAhd dropping ahead of momentum with the dropping fib level external marked)]



[showing: price below prior cycle's fib vectoring is stage set for lower high]



dll parameter settings for vector pics_13 tick chart


The MTR_Crest dll displays the resistance levels of the market generated at both the Crest 'Shock-Point' and Trough 'Shock-Point' of the wave. Directional Bias output is selectable by user, using any Price/Time Fib Fence desired.


Crest Mechanism: The dropping 'Look-Ahead's' (Momentum & Time), of the crest turn, are tracking position relative to the Fib Structure. When the mLkAhd exceeds momentum (crest shock-point), two Fib levels are locked: 1. External, the last Fib level tracked above LkAhds and 2. Internal, the Fib level between mLkAhd and TmLkAhd. The 'External' price level becomes a very strong 'Cap' of resistance over the Trough phase of the wave. When broken, this resistance level becomes support. Specifically . . . price movement above is breaking out with rising momentum . . . a stage set for higher hi's and higher lo's. dll parameter settings for this pic_13 tick chart


Crest Thermometer: Cap of the thermometer is the external Fib level described above. The thermometer itself is a count structure, the right side of which is a 21 count from shock-point. The left side is 16 counts from shock-point, ie Time. This 'count' zone serves to consistently remind you, as a trader, to monitor what price is doing as it 'applies' into the 'decision point' 21.


Fib Vectoring: This '21 External Fib Point', this 'Fib_Tm/Pr Decision Point' is extremely useful as a vector anchor. Users can select whatever Fib level they want to project to, or two auto selection modes are available, either Trough or Crest. When it comes to support/resistance and fences/vectors, it has been found that using the opposing force provides consistent results. So, with this Crest tool, I choose Trough Fib for the auto setting.

Learn This Tool Fundamental:


Crest Tm21_FibPr Point is a very strong magnet. Price consistently moves to this 'Break-Out Potential' level . . . and makes a decision.


(Failure, by definition, will always involve price breaking thru prior cycle Fib Vectoring) Show Me


In this case cap, fence & 180* vector are pierced right at crossover point.



The MTR_Crest dll can be set to display the following Resistance features of the Burton Momentum Wave:


1.Crest (generated) Res Thermometer Cap level (crest mLkAhd falling below price, marks external Fib level and 16 to 21 time zone)

2.Option to display Trough (generated) Res Momentum Cap level (trough mLkAhd rising above price)

3.Option to display Trough (generated) Fib Vectoring (Tm21_FibPr anchor to user selected Fib Pr/Tm)

4.Option to use Auto Directional Bias output filtered by user selected Fib Price/Time Fence (shown in examples)

5.Option to display Fib Fences: Trough, Crest or both

6.Option to display Fold-Over levels of the Fib Fences

7.Option to display Trend vectoring from Thermometer to Thermometer

8.Option to display Time Fences: Trough, Crest or both (overrides Thermometer display)

9.Option to display the Momentum Wave


  Remember This Fundamental of Learning:


Each of the vibrational components of this Wave Based tool provide

a unique 'Squared' and 'Phi Rich' structure to any chart. Successful trading comes when two things are understood:


1.The structural RELATIONSHIP of the above features (specifically created by price action) and . . .

2. Price's position in 'Relation' to this 'RELATIONSHIP'


It is suggested and highly recommended that users add only one structure and concept to their trading at a time. Complete clarity of

the trade precepts (action points) of each must be understood and internalized before a 2nd can be added successfully.

This help file is about helping you accomplish that . . . review these charts often.
