Power of Having Multiple Confluences in Trading

BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
The more confluences you have, the more confident you are in the fact that your technical setup will play out according to the plan. Confluences come in different shapes and styles, whether it is combining some Moving Averages and Bollinger Bands with price action, or having your grandma flip a coin a decide the faith of Bitcoin .

On the graphical illustration that you can see on the screen, 3 confluences have been utilised to back up our idea and they are the following:

1) "Break + retest" formation
2) "Triple Top" pattern
3) Fibonacci retracement tool

It can be noticed from the left hand side of the screen, that the price has nicely broken out of the ascending channel and re-tested the local key structure. Moving to the next step, it can be emphasised that a nice "Triple Top" pattern has been formed. Lastly, we add another confluence to back up a possible scenario that we have eyes on by using the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level, which is referred to as the "Golden Zone". Taking a look at the chart, we can clearly observe that long candle wicks are nicely rejecting this very zone.

All in all, combining multiple confluences give us enough confluence to back up our sentiment. However, nothing is 100% guaranteed in the markets, meaning that it is not promised that your trade will play out perfectly no matter how many confluences you have. Thus, be risk-tolerant, patient, and cold-blooded!

Have a great upcoming weekend, everyone!
