what is flowbox charting
What is FlowBox Charting?
  • Introduced by Bert Antonik to the Trading World
  • FlowBox (FB) is a result of 30 years of trading
  • New unique charting approach that does not ‘Display Traditional OPEN, HIGH, LOW & CLOSE of each period !’
  • Main purpose to ELIMINATE Trading Emotion
what is flowbox charting1
What is FlowBox Charting?
  • Allow Traders to ‘Filter to Focus’ on the Trading Process
  • Reveals Support (Demand) & Resistance (Supply)
  • Able to identify Risk Level & Entry Opportunity
  • Helps Trader stay in GOOD Trades Longer
  • Helps Trader Exit LOSING Positions Faster

FlowBox - Basic
  • FlowBox
  • FlowBox ChannelLine
  • FlowBox Chart
  • FlowBox Arrows

BaseLine

flowbox
FlowBox -

BaseLine

  • BaseLine (BL) =
  • General trend confirmation
  • BaseLine confirms up trend, when trading above BaseLine & BaseLine trending Up
  • Compare closes to the BaseLine to determine angle of BaseLine (Up, Down or Flat)

FlowBox -

BaseLine

  • Relation between BaseLine with FlowBox Channel Line (BL above, below or middle of FB Channel Line)
  • Helps to Identify general trend for the time period
  • Stronger on larger timeframe
  • BaseLine – similar to Moving Average but have unique qualities
flowbox channel line
FlowBox – ChannelLine
  • Upper Channel Line (UCL)
  • When Upper Channel Line (UCL) crosses below BaseLine (BL), a general Short confirmation; if BL is Trending Down
  • When UCL crosses back above BL, look for additional scaling in opportunity; At or Near BL
flowbox channel line1
FlowBox – ChannelLine
  • Upper Channel Line (UCL)
  • When holding a SHORT position, UCL can be used as a Stop when below Entry
  • When SHORTING, the initial Stop will be just above the Prior UCL Pivot High
  • Connect the Pivot Highs & Draw Trading Trendline
flowbox channel line2
FlowBox – ChannelLine
  • Lower Channel Line (LCL)
  • When Lower Channel Line (LCL) crosses above BaseLine (BL), a general Long confirmation; if BL is Trending Up
  • When LCL crosses back below BL, look for additional scaling in opportunity; At or Near BL
flowbox channel line3
FlowBox – ChannelLine
  • Lower Channel Line (LCL)
  • When holding a LONG position, LCL can be used as a Stop when above Entry
  • When Going LONG, the initial Stop will be just below the Prior LCL Pivot Low
  • Connect the Pivot Lows & Draw Trading Trendline
flowbox chart
FlowBox Chart
  • Consist of :-
    • Box
    • Pipe
    • Clusters
  • The Flow is either from 1 Box to another Box Directly OR by a Pipe
flowbox chart1
FlowBox Chart
  • When the Right Edge of the Box stays Open, and the new period begins; then a CLUSTER is formed
  • Clusters are Significant because they identify the potential for a change in the Flow direction (Possible Trend Change)
  • Pay attention when FlowBoxes cluster sideways, usually an indication of a consolidation area and potential trend change
flowbox chart2
FlowBox Chart
  • A Long Pipe is pipe that’s significantly larger than the prior box or last box in a cluster
  • Long Pipe Reversals, normally signal OR confirm the change in Trend Direction

flowbox chart4
FlowBox Chart
  • FlowBox Chart – makes it easy to identify :-
    • Pivot High & Pivot Low points
    • Impulse & Corrective moves, from which trendlines can be drawn
flowbox arrows
FlowBox – Arrows
  • provides visual confirmation of anticipated FlowBox retracement
  • when displayed (only available with asset classes that trade in penny / 0.01 increment), Flowbox Arrows provides traders with an alert for opportunities to scale into an existing position
flowbox arrows1
FlowBox – Arrows

Green Arrow

  • is an alert for potentially adding to a LONG position

Red Arrow

  • is an alert for potentially adding to a SHORT position
flowbox volume mix indicator
FlowBox – Volume Mix Indicator
  • helps identify significant activity during times when there is a High Probability for a potential trend change
  • to alert traders to periods when unusually high volume exit
  • a) just before, during & shortly after unsually high volume periods, a high potential exist for trend change
  • b) by identifying high volume periods traders can get an additional confirmation for Trade Entries & Exits
flowbox bert s rsi
FlowBox – Bert’s RSI
  • This is a modified RSI that uses an integration of both the standard RSI & MACD algorithm
  • This indicator is used to confirm the initial & continuing trend direction. And also alert traders to the completion of the trend
flowbox bert s rsi1
FlowBox – Bert’s RSI
  • RSI Base Line (Green) - similar to the Standard RSI
  • RSI Signal Line (Red) - similar to the MACD Signal Line
  • Depending on asset class being traded, historical indicator low or high levels may alert the trader to potential consolidation areas preceeding trend continuation & changes
flowbox bert s rsi2
FlowBox – Bert’s RSI
  • BUY or Go LONG
  • When Signal Line cross above Base Line, upward movement is being confirmed
  • Aggressive traders may use the crossing as confirmation for an entry
  • Green Shadow are shown when Signal Line cross above Base Line
  • When Base Line cross above 50, a higher probability BUY alert is given
  • Green Arrow is shown when Base Line cross above 50
flowbox bert s rsi3
FlowBox – Bert’s RSI
  • SELL or Go SHORT
  • When Signal Line cross below Base Line, downward movement is being confirmed
  • Aggressive traders may use the crossing as confirmation for an entry
  • Red Shadow are shown when Signal Line cross below Base Line
  • When Base Line cross below 50, a higher probability SELL alert is given
  • Red Arrow is shown when Base Line cross below 50
flowbox bert s rsi4
FlowBox – Bert’s RSI
  • a Flat Indicator at or near 50 should be interpreted as consolidation
  • steep slopes alert trader to higher probability trades
  • traders should consider drawing trendlines using the High & Low pivots of the signal line
flowbox bert s stochastic
FlowBox – Bert’s Stochastic
  • similar to a slow stochastic & is modified to use self-adjusting parameters within its algorithm
  • similar to Bert\'s RSI. This indicator is used to confirm the initial & continuing trend direction and not the completion of a trend
slide30

FlowBox – Bert’s Stochastic

  • This indicator is used in conjunction with and is displayed as an overlay on “Bert\'s RSI”
  • its used to confirm the Bert\'s RSI for Higher probability trade Entries & Exits
  • when overlayed properly, and when this indicator crosses above or below Bert\'s RSI a higher probability trend maybe identified if both indicators point in the same direction with steep slopes
flowbox adx line
FlowBox – ADX Line
  • Similar to standard ADX but modified to use self adjusting parameters within its algorithm
  • To identify trend strength & continuation period
  • used in conjunction with Bert\'s RSI & Bert\'s Stochastic Overlay
flowbox adx line1
FlowBox – ADX Line
  • when this indicator RISES from the Low Zone Area it usually indicates the beginning or continuation of a trend
  • when this indicator FALLS from the High Zone Area it usually indicates the reversal or weakening of a trend
  • a RISING ADX Line is always more significant then a falling ADX Line
flowbox adx strength arrows
FlowBox – ADX Strength Arrows
  • provides a visual confirmation of the ADX strength
  • when displayed - strength arrows confirm the strength of a trend in conjunction with a Rising ADX
flowbox adx strength arrows1
FlowBox – ADX Strength Arrows
  • when strength arrows appear they provide additional confirmation that a trend is either beginning or continuing increasing the likelihood of a higher probability trade
  • traders should anticipate a RISING ADX when a strength arrow appears
flowbox adx di di
FlowBox – ADX +DI & -DI
  • +DIidentifies Uptrend direction
  • -DI identifies Downtrend direction
  • similar to standard +DI & -DI but modified to use self-adjusting parameters in its algorithm
flowbox adx di di1
FlowBox – ADX +DI & -DI
  • +DI
  • When +DIcrosses above-DI and continues to Rise, a potential uptrend is identified
  • -DI
  • When -DIcrosses above+DI and continues to Rise, a potential downtrend is identified
flowbox adx di di2
FlowBox – ADX +DI & -DI

Critical Concept - For Both +DI & -DI

  • If +DI or -DI also crosses above the ADX Line, it indicates additional strength in the trend
  • If +DI or -DI also crosses below a Rising ADX Line, it indicates a weakening in the trend that may lead to a Reversal
flowbox adx zones high low
FlowBox – ADX Zones (High & Low)
  • ADX High Zone Area (HZA) represents an area where trends are likely to end or consolidate
  • ADX Low Zone Area (LZA) represents an area where trends are likely to begin or sometimes consolidate
  • alert traders to potential trend changes
flowbox adx zones high low1
FlowBox – ADX Zones (High & Low)

High Zone

  • when either the ADX Line, +DI or -DI approaches the High Zone, traders should anticipate a potential trend change
  • when ADX Line falls away from the High Zone, the probability of a trend change increases and maybe confirmed
flowbox adx zones high low2
FlowBox – ADX Zones (High & Low)

Low Zone - look for good trends to begin from the Low Zone Area

Uptrend Alert

  • ADX Line Rising from Low Zone Area (LZA) and +DI Rising & Crossing above -DI in the LZA, indicates a high probability beginning of an uptrend
  • if +DI also crosses above ADX Line near the LZA it increases the probability of the beginning of an uptrend
flowbox adx zones high low3
FlowBox – ADX Zones (High & Low)

Low Zone

Downtrend Alert

  • ADX Line Rising from Low Zone Area (LZA) and -DI Rising & Crossing above +DI in the LZA, indicates a high probability beginning of a downtrend
  • if -DI also crosses above ADX Line near the LZA it increases the probability of the beginning of a downtrend
flowbox adx sha dows
FlowBox – ADX Shadows
  • identify a crossing of the +DI & -DI
  • alert traders to a potential trend change
  • used in conjunction with Bert\'s RSI Shadow to provide confirmation to a potential High Probability Trade
flowbox adx sha dows1
FlowBox – ADX Shadows
  • Green Shadow signals +DI cross above –DI
  • Red Shadow signals –DI cross above +DI
  • when Green Shadow is IMMEDIATELY followed by Red Shadow, anticipate a Downtrend or Short Sell Opportunity
  • when Red Shadow is IMMEDIATELY followed by Green Shadow, anticipate a Uptrend or Buy Opportunity
