For example, the market has been in an uptrend and when the price hits a major resistance level, it reversed and formed a downtrend. That’s what reversal means. Now, where can reversals happen? The following are the major areas where price reversals do happen: Support levels Resistance levels Fibonacci levels Here’s an example of price reversing form a support level and went up and then later broke it and went down. Now that broken support level acts as resistance level when the price came for a re-test of the level and sent the price tumbling down: So the big question is: how to spot trend continuity and execute trades at the right time? The secret is in the identification of specific chart patterns as well as very specific candlesticks patterns and you will discover more on the Chart Patterns and Candlestick Patterns section of this course.

Rare Forex Trendline Trading Strategy (GREAT RISK REWARD RATIO)

As I’ve said here, that I spend more hours watching charts than I spend with my missus and she really gets pissed off sometimes and calls my laptop my “mistress” or “2nd wife” or something along that line 🙂 and as a result of those long hours, I sort of stumbled into this setup by accident a few years ago. And to be quite honest, it may not be new discovery (and maybe has a special name which I have not seen yet) but just because of that fact that I had never seen or read about it prior, I opened up many forex charts and went back to past price action history to see if this setup was tradeable or not, did it make sense or not.
