Hey, traders. Look at the chart above. Opposite to comon thinking that price is trending only 30% of a time I would say that price is always trending. Trend is a natural way of price movement. Although it looks like price is moving sideways, there is a trend on this pair. You just need to know what to look at. If you follow me long enough you might have noticed that I draw lines and squares on my charts. Lines stand for impulses and squares stand for corrections. This is my way to represent various series of ascending higs with ascending lows or descending lows with descending highs which is the exact definition of a trend given by Dow Johnes himself. All professional traders define trend in this manner. If you read some of W. Gann
works you will find his way of describing swings which is in essence an attempt to define a trend. If you tend more to Elliot
way of analizing the market you will also notice him speaking of waves forming peaks and dips on the chart. Notice that none of these men talks about special indicator of a trend. They all use a correlation between highs and lows to define trends. So do I. To summarize my market research I define a trend as two or more impulses separated only by a correction. Whenever you see two lines separated by a square on my charts, you should be sure that I defined a trend. Once the trend is identified, the main part of the work is done. You may use whatever technique to enter in anticipation of the existing trend continuation. I personally use harmonic patterns
which combined with my trend identification technique give me a powerful tool for extracting money out of the market.
