Price Action & Psychology - Pullback, Trend

Hello !

  • Halfway retracement
  • Key support zone
  • Direction of the trend + wide-range candles
  • Indecision + spike in volume
Charts are like books. They tell us a story. We're trading in the direction of the trend, marked by these spikes in volume combined with wide-range candles.

What do the shadows/wicks tell us ? Well there's much conviction here. Whenever buyers are in control, they get very aggressive. Anyway, sellers still manage to bring the price back down (buyers are still in control!).

Obviously, everytime the price gets over-extended it retraces, usually on low volume . This shows that sellers are : 1) not being aggressive, 2) not being numerous. In other words, whenever prices get down, it's not a shift in investors/traders minds, but rather the natural course of profit-takers.

The trade is pretty clear here. After getting rejected from the resistance (and breaking out from the range), the stock comes down, on low volume , showing low interest in selling the stock. The hint here, is the indecision candlestick coupled with a spike in volume . This means, the stock has arrived at an important historical zone and buyers are stepping in.

Thanks for reading and if you have suggestions or want to discuss the idea, just leave a comment, I'll be happy to answer.
