Utilizing the Smart Money concept, you rely on the SMC Dashboard to analyze the market structure and identify potential trading opportunities. The dashboard assesses six major time frames and helps you select the best trading pairs based on the analysis. Using sophisticated algorithms and price action data, the SMC Dashboard calculates crucial market metrics such as Momentum, Volatility, Volume, trend, and trend power. But before you delve into these metrics, your first priority is to confirm the overall direction of the market. Specifically, you check if Momentum, Volatility, and Volume are either bearish or bullish across at least four time frames. This confirmation is essential to ensure you're not entering a trade that goes against the market's broader direction. By using the SMC Dashboard and applying smart money concepts, you can make informed trading decisions and increase your chances of success in the dynamic world of day trading.

Fair value Gap Trading Strategy
Fair Value Gap
gaps don't always fill
Fair Value Gaps. These gaps occur when sudden market movements create an imbalance in prices, leaving behind unfilled orders. Traders often take note of these gaps because they tend to be filled later on as prices return to their fair value. However, unless it is a breakaway gap, once the filling process begins, it usually completes quickly since there is no significant support or resistance to hinder it.
To make the most of these gaps, it's crucial to keep a close eye on the trading volume, which you can easily monitor through our Dashboard. This information is critical as it can help you determine whether the gap is the result of smart money coming into the market or simply retail traders jumping on a trend. By understanding the behavior of smart money, you can make better-informed trading decisions and take advantage of profitable opportunities.
