About the Presentation 

Volume At Price (VAP) is an extremely useful, easy to use visual tool that confirms other visual indicators. It has not been given much coverage in the Technical Analysis field. Paul will outline both the theory behind the indicator and it's practical application.

The Theory

  • Steidlmayer Distribution: the current Market Profile®
  • Volume at Price(VAP): the new market profile
  • How the VAP is calculated
  • VAP confirms support and resistance
  • VAP and Pivot Points
  • VAP and gaps

The Practical

  • VAP and price targets in short term trades
  • VAP and the choice of strike prices in options strategies

Come prepared for an informative, interactive evening that will help all technical analysts view the price charts from a new perspective.



Technical insights can assist investors how and when to use “fundamentals”.  It is a myth that technicals are primarily a short-term trading tool. Investment industry professionals and private investors are discovering the power of Financial Technical Analysis to add to returns and risk performance in all time frames. Technicals alone or used in conjunction with economic research, cycles, quant methods and fundamentals - can be a vital strategy tool – enabling an edge in selection, allocation, timing and risk management. Relativity of prices to other information is a powerful tool. TASSA endeavours to contribute to the investment industry.

TASSA holds presentation meetings and webinars most months of the year, convened by notice on the website at or by email notification to members and past attendees. The meeting dates depend on venue and speaker availability. We endeavour to plan meetings not to conflict with the IFTA webinar programme.

Presenters are typically investment professionals, trader or analyst professionals who talk about using technical analysis methods, systems and research platforms in the context of better trading and investing. There are talks on market opportunities and risks, economic trends that impact investing; trader tools, platforms, electronic trading and measuring behavioural aspects that impact on trading and investment decisions.
