Trend Analysis

Trend Analysis is arguably the most important area of technical analysis and is key to determining the overall direction of a security. Trends are based on the principle of higher highs, higher lows (for an uptrend) and lower highs, lower lows (for a downtrend). They can have different time horizons and be embedded within one another, like fractals. For example: an overall uptrend on the weekly timeframe can include a downtrend on the daily, while the hourly is going up. Multiple Time Frame Analysis helps traders to understand the bigger picture. Some trends are seasonal while others are part of bigger cycles.

Trend analysis can be done by using trend lines and by taking specific horizontal price levels or zones into account that reverse roles between support and resistance. These price levels are the major zones where the market seems to respond by making a strong advance or decline. Fibonacci levels measure or predict the retracements before the continuation of a trend. Some traders rely on price action and look at specific candle formations.

GOLD - Trap Pattern

False breakout of the triangle. That's what I think is coming now. I warned you below the last post that we are too late in this 5 months rally and getting too late in this daily cycle. We wasted so much time in the last 5 days going nowhere that I simply don't see any chance of running to new highs (above 1300$). The GDP was extremely good: U.S. 1st-quarter GDP ...

My opinion on supply & demand vs wave trading

Most Elliott Wave practitioners admit that their system is only meant to be a “general guide” with many possible outcomes (i.e. additional randomness and variability is introduced). That is, there is an “ideal” wave pattern according to the theory, but in practice there can be deviations from this pattern. Nothing about this admission refutes the above arguments, ...

Step #1 In a Down Trend, wait for price action and head back to the upside inside the channel. Step #2: Wait for Price action to push down now and pull back up.

Rising Wedge and Potential Double Top on EURJPY (420+ pips)

Hey all, what we have here are signs of a potential rising wedge formation on EURJPY due to the higher highs and higher lows being formed since the 18th of May. Fibonacci levels applied on a larger timescale seem to show the price working well between the 0.5 and 0.618 levels - an idea supported by the recent rejection of a new high on the 16th and on the 24th.

Lets buy the aussie breakout

Hey guys Aussie has been correcting after that strong impulse up and now we might be able to buy it once the contracting flat finds it bottom. Look to buy if we get a flag after the break of the trendline. Also, we might get another wave down before it breaks the top of the flat so it might be wise to book some profits at the top :)
