Different Trend Lines Part 3


Basic Trading Concepts Defined

Forex traders have various ways on how they could trade the corrective price action:

1. BOUNCE TRADER: Forex traders can take bounce trade setups off of the trend lines within the corrective price movements. This means that Forex traders are anticipating price to use or respect the support or resistance line and not break through it. As long as the correction lasts, this trade plan would work out until the moment the chart pattern fails and price breaks the pattern by going through the bottom or top trend line (the last trade is often a loss). The target is either the middle of the chart pattern (conservative target) or most often the opposite side of the chart pattern. Be cautious of the fact that corrective patterns with shallow trend lines often have small space between the top and bottom lines, which means profit potential could be (too much) limited.


2. BOUNCE TRADER FOR BREAOUT: Forex traders can take bounce trade setups off of the trend lines within the corrective price movements BUT with a different target in mind. They are targeting a price which is either below above the chart pattern because they are anticipating the break of the chart pattern. In most cases it is better to position oneself with the previous momentum or trend direction; because the chances are higher that price will break to the same direction. So in a downtrend, its best to pick the tops within the chart pattern for a downside break out. In an uptrend, its best to pick the bottoms within the chart pattern for an upside breakout.



3. BREAKOUT TRADER: Lastly, Forex traders can choose to wait for the corrective chart pattern to break and only trade when a new impulse is starting. When chart patterns break there is a higher chance that an impulse will occur, but never a guarantee. Occasionally corrective charts break and price does not become impulse but in fact expands the size of the corrective pattern or reverses (false break outs). In other cases quick momentum can occur when a pattern breaks and price can move up and/or down a lot, which is exactly what the breakout trader is looking for. There are various ways of trading the breakout. A trader does not have to trade a break of the chart pattern immediately, but could opt for more confirmation by letting price pullback to pattern, letting price pullback to pattern and bounce, and taking a 2nd breakout.

  1. Drawing trend lines is one of the few easy techniques that really WORK. Prices respect a trend line, or break through it resulting in a massive move. Drawing good trend lines is the MOST REWARDING skill.

    The problem is, as you may have already experienced, too many false breakouts. You see trend lines everywhere, however not all trend lines should be considered. You have to distinguish between STRONG and WEAK trend lines.

    One good guideline is that a strong trend line should have AT LEAST THREE touching points. Trend lines with more than four touching points are MONSTER trend lines and you should be always prepared for the massive breakout!

    This sophisticated software automatically draws only the strongest trend lines and recognizes the most reliable chart patterns formed by trend lines...

    Chart patterns such as "Triangles, Flags and Wedges" are price formations that will provide you with consistent profits.

    Before the age of computing power, the professionals used to analyze every single chart to search for chart patterns. This kind of analysis was very time consuming, but it was worth it. Now it's time to use powerful dedicated computers that will do the job for you:

  2. Do you think that to dramatically improve your success rate you have to read tons of thick books, buy expensive software and spend countless hours of learning more about Forex?

    What I'm going to share with you is something very EASY to use and very POWERFUL at the same time.

    Let me give you an EXAMPLE:

    Imagine you trade a system that makes 50% winning trades, but another 50% are losing trades. If you increase your odds of winning by only 20%, that would make 70% winning trades and 30% losing trades.

    Well, HOW TO accomplish that?

    Just pick the best trending pair at the current time and simply follow the trend! I have found ONE INCREDIBLE TOOL that continuously scans the Forex market and picks the most reliable trending pairs for you.

    By taking signals in the direction of a strong trend you would REDUCE UNNECESSARY LOSSES and increase the odds of winning. You need to know "how well" the market is trending to avoid very short-term trends.

    STOP hunting the market for every potential trade. Pick only the best trending pairs and time frames and DO NOT take any trading signals in the choppy market (unless you know exactly what you are doing).

    Successful traders keep it simple and this is the way how the pros made fortunes in the markets - by trading less and making more.
