Trend Lines

Trend lines can be used to identify and confirm trends. A trend line connects at least 2 price points on a chart and is usually extended forward to identify sloped areas of support and resistance. Lines with a positive slope that support price action show that net-demand is increasing. As long as price action stays above this line, we have a bullish trend. Lines with a negative slope that act as resistance to price action show that net-supply is increasing. As long as price action stays under this line, we have a bearish trend.

Price usually retests a sloped trend line several times, until it breaks at which point we may have a trend reversal. The most successful tests of a trend line are when the more points there are to connect, the stronger the line becomes. Different strategies have different rules on how far apart connected price points can be and whether to connect wicks or candle bodies, but all trend lines break eventually. TradingView has a smart drawing tool that allows users to visually identify trend lines on a chart.

Completed 5 wave structure and now in a-b-c correction. The b wave is not over but a break above the trendline should signal the start of wave c. I target the .618 retracement of the completed 5wave structure which is close to the end of wave 1 which is a picture perfect wave. Good luck

Across the board, we saw the US dollar wane against the majority of its trading peers. This forced the single currency to attack and eventually close beyond the 1.07 handle on the H4 chart, and end the day closing above daily resistance coming in at 1.0710 (now acting support). In addition to this, Monday’s ...

Hi At this point I've sold half of my bitcoin at break even. We didn't get the 'pop' upwards I was hoping for. I don't like to mess around with trades once I'm in, but taking a fresh look at the latest candles, I'm feeling that the probability of a good move up immediately is against us and I'd rather protect my ...

Underpinned by a fading US dollar, and expectations of more parliamentary participation in the Brexit proceedings to be the result of the EU court membership ruling today at 9.30am, the pound munched through several H4 tech resistances yesterday! Looking over to the weekly candles, we can see that price has ...

GBP/USD sliding trend line to offer support
The retreat from 1.2546 (today’s high) looks like a usual shakeout following a breakout. The spot breached the descending trend line yesterday. A rebound from around the trend line support appears likely, given the bullish daily RSI and upward sloping ST MAs – 5 & 10. On the downside, only a daily close below ...

Hi Going to buy a breakout of this small daily range. The price is a little erratic, but it's worth pursuing these setups on cryptos as the risk/reward can be in multiples of ten if it gets pumped. The price has also been though a pretty erratic 'resetting period' since the last pump and is beginning to become ...

It is in a steady upward channel on 4h, recently broke through a pretty strong resistance and key level at 1.07. I don't see the trend line stopping it from continuing bullish and I believe with a weakening DXY we could see the start of a steady and long term overall bullish move from EU
