Financial Assets Fair Value Model (GFAFVM) Part 2: Advanced Trading Strategies

Financial Assets Fair Value Model (GFAFVM) Part 2: Advanced Trading Strategies


Building upon the foundational principles of the Global Financial Assets Fair Value Model (GFAFVM) devised by Dr. Glen Brown, this continuation delves deeper into strategic applications for trading decisions. While Part 1 focused on determining the fair value of financial assets, Part 2 explores how to leverage the model in various market conditions, emphasizing reversal to value trades and other strategies under different market structures.

Reversal to Value Strategy in a Bearish Market Structure

In a bearish market structure, prices may significantly deviate from the Value Zone, creating opportunities for reversal trades back to fair value. Here’s how traders can apply the GFAFVM in such scenarios:

  1. Identification of Overextension: Utilize the GFAFVM to identify when an asset’s price is excessively far from the lower boundary of the Value Zone, indicating overextension in a bearish market.
  2. Confirmation of Market Sentiment: Employ GMACD settings to confirm bearish sentiment on daily, weekly, and monthly timeframes. An alignment of bearish sentiment across these timeframes strengthens the case for a potential reversal.
  3. Entry Points: Look for bullish divergences or a shift in EMA group alignments from descending to ascending order as early indicators of a potential reversal. The ideal entry point is when the price starts to move back towards the Value Zone, indicating a shift in market dynamics.
  4. Execution of Reversal Trades: Implement trades that capitalize on the expected movement of prices back into the Value Zone, setting stop losses below recent lows to manage risk effectively.

Exploiting Bullish Market Structures: Premium Trading

In a bullish market, prices trading above the Value Zone’s upper boundary may indicate assets at a premium. While this might deter value-focused investors, momentum traders can exploit this for gains, provided they manage risks judiciously:

  1. Premium Identification: Use the GFAFVM to spot assets trading above the upper boundary of the Value Zone in a solid bullish structure.
  2. Momentum Confirmation: Verify bullish momentum using GMACD settings and the alignment of EMA groups in ascending order.
  3. Profit Targets: Set ambitious profit targets within reason, understanding that assets at a premium can experience significant volatility. Utilize dynamic trailing stops to safeguard gains.

Strategies for Trading at a Discount in Bullish Markets

Assets trading below the Value Zone’s lower boundary in a bullish market are considered at a discount, presenting buy opportunities:

  1. Discount Identification: Highlight assets below the Value Zone’s lower boundary with bullish market structures.
  2. Signal for Entry: Await bullish crossover signals in EMA alignments or positive GMACD indications as triggers for entry.
  3. Setting Objectives: Aim for the upper boundary of the Value Zone as the primary profit target, applying a conservative approach to risk management.

Diversifying Strategies Across Asset Classes

The versatility of the GFAFVM allows for its application across various asset classes, including cryptocurrencies, equities, and commodities. Traders should adjust their strategies based on the asset class’s volatility and liquidity levels:

  1. Cryptocurrencies: Given their high volatility, use tighter stops and be prepared for rapid price movements.
  2. Equities: Focus on fundamental analysis to complement the technical signals provided by the GFAFVM.
  3. Commodities: Pay attention to macroeconomic indicators that may influence prices beyond technical analysis.


The advanced trading strategies outlined in Part 2 of the GFAFVM guide provide a framework for exploiting market inefficiencies through a technical analysis lens. By understanding and applying these strategies, traders can make informed decisions, capitalizing on the dynamic movements of financial assets across different market structures.

Implementation and Continuous Learning

The key to successfully utilizing the GFAFVM lies in continuous market analysis, adaptation to evolving market conditions, and disciplined risk management. Traders are encouraged to backtest these strategies and remain abreast of market sentiment shifts to refine their approach continually.
