This week we're joined by Brian Shannon — founder of Alphatrends.net and author of the beginner's trading book Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes, and best-selling book Maximum Trading Gains with Anchored VWAP. We talk Netflix, Bitcoin, and the concept of Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP). Specifically:

  • Netflix is trading near all-time highs and has the potential for further upside

  • Bitcoin has consolidated and is poised for a breakout to new all-time highs

  • The use of anchored VWAP (Volume-Weighted Average Price) and its application in analyzing Bitcoin and crude oil

  • The concept of using multiple timeframes in technical analysis

  • The role of fundamentals versus price action in driving market movements

  • Why you should stay in your lane
