Chart Patterns

Chart patterns are the foundational building blocks of technical analysis. They repeat themselves in the market time and time again and are relatively easy to spot. These basic patterns appear on every timeframe and can, therefore, be used by scalpers, day traders, swing traders, position traders and investors. There are 3 types of patterns, depending on how price is likely to behave after completion: reversal patterns, where price is likely to reverse, continuation patterns, where price is likely to continue its course and bilateral patterns, where price can go either way, depending on whether it breaks to the upside or to the downside.

The measurements of the chart pattern can be used to project the next price movement and what target to aim for. These patterns can either be traded aggressively (with less conformation) or conservatively (with more conformation) so the rules of entry and exit can vary. It's easy to calculate the reward / risk for them, which is important to know before entering a trade.

GOLD - feed fed FED

Bulls took the bait nicely. The story is always the same : small traders are fed as they are chasing the price before the big correction. Big players and banks are positioning in miners shorts and gold shorts. The small traders are concentrating on a trendline breakout which died out. It's true we broke the trendline and that could be the beginning of a run higher ...

Mysterious MIT Litecoin Project: Coblee is Satoshi Nakamoto?

However, I like extreme thoughts, so I want to speculate about something else: could Coblee, aka Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin, be Satoshi Nakamoto himself? Lets take the following ...

Bearish weekend for Ether ahead

Bull run is over, volume is dwindling testing the 303 support line, each peak past $340 is lower and lower. Strong support on the 62% fib level ~230-240 if things go south. If we want to break upwards we need some news, otherwise I think the newly verified money on Coinbase/Gemini from the past few weeks is starting to dry up and the weekend will be bearish. We ...

BTS to reach 20000?

First Post. Just got into trading recently and decided to start testing my charting and predictions by putting my ideas out there. Looks like BTS after over a week of consolidation is ready to break out of the pennant formation. If it breaks through the red resistance, watch closely to see if it is able to break through the resistance of the blue channel. If it ...
