How to identify trend reversal — identify weakness in the trending move

First, let me define what a trending move is…

A trending move is the “stronger” leg of a trend and it trades in the same direction of it (that’s why I call it trending move).

The trending move (in a healthy uptrend) usually has more bullish than bearish candles; the bullish candles are relatively larger than the bearish ones, and the bullish candles closing near the highs

An example:


However:

When the bullish candles are getting smaller, it’s telling you the buying pressure is getting weak, or there is equal selling pressure coming in.

Price Action Patterns That Work (Guest Post)

Price Action Patterns That Work (Guest Post)

When it comes to price action patterns, most traders will think of…

“Hammer”

“Shooting star”

“Engulfing pattern”

Now, these are easy patterns to learn for beginners.

But, if you want to take your price action trading skill to the next level, then you must master new price action patterns.

That’s why in today’s post, you’ll discover 5 price action patterns that work—so you can develop sniper trading entries to trade market reversals, trend continuation, and even breakouts.

Ready?

Then let’s begin…

Price action pattern #1: False break

The false break is a reversal price action pattern that allows you to buy low and sell high.

Here’s why it works:

 

Imagine, the price makes a strong bullish move into resistance—and breaks out higher.

At this point, many traders have this thought process…

“The market is so bullish”

“Look at how big those green candles are!”

“It’s time to buy!”

So, this group of traders buy as the price breaks above resistance and their stop loss is likely below the previous candle low, below support, etc.

This means if the market makes a sudden reversal, you can agree that these cluster of stop loss will be triggered which puts selling pressure in the market.

Plus, if bearish traders step into the market and sell near the highs of resistance, you can expect the market to collapse lower and erode the gains it made earlier—that’s the power of the false break price action pattern.

Now that you’ve understood the logic behind the false break price action pattern, then here’s how to trade it…

Turtle Trading Rules: Does It Still Work Today? (guest post)

Turtle Trading Rules: Does It Still Work Today? (guest post)

In 1983, two commodity traders, Richard Dennis and William Eckhardt experimented to see if trading is an inborn skill or it can be taught.

So they conducted interviews to find people who were the right fit.

A few lucky candidates were selected for the program—they were known as the turtle traders.

Next, Richard Dennis gave the turtle traders a fixed set of trading rules to trade the markets (using his money).

The result?

It was astonishing! Several turtle traders made triple-digit returns within a few short years and some even went on the set up their own hedge funds.

Clearly, the turtle trading rules worked well in the 1980s.

But the question is:

Do the turtle trading rules still work today?

Well, that’s what you’re about to discover in this post.

So let’s get started…

Trend Trading Indicator BEST EVER to Identify Trend in Forex (MT4… | Trading Indicators

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Rayner is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @Rayner and has 609 followers.

One of the most common questions I get from traders is this…

“Hey Rayner, how do I identify the direction of the trend?”

However, it’s not as simple as it seems — even if you use trend indicators.

For example:

The Daily chart is in an uptrend.

But when you go down to the hourly chart, it’s a downtrend.

And if you go down to the 5-minute chart, it’s chopping all over the place.

So what should you do?

Well, you’ll know the answer after reading this post because you’ll learn:

 

Sounds good?

Then let’s begin…

This is the most important thing before you can identify the direction of the trend (and it’s not an indicator)

 

The trend is an illusion.

Yup.

You read me right. I said the trend is an illusion.

Why?

I love the ATR indicator because unlike other trading indicators that measure momentum, trend direction, overbought levels, and etc.

The ATR (average true range) indicator is none of it.

Instead, it’s something entirely different.

And if used correctly, the Average True Range is one of the most powerful indicators you’ll come across.

That’s why I’ve written this post to explain the awesomeness of the Average True Range indicator.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

ATR indicator explained — what is it and how does it work

The Average True Range is an indicator that measures volatility.

It’s developed by J. Welles Wilder and was first mentioned in his book, New Concepts in Technical Analysis Systems (in 1978).

Now you might be wondering:

“How is the ATR values calculated?”

Well, it’s done using 1 of 3 methods, depending on how the candles are formed.
