Shooting Star Candlestick Pattern Definition:
When the price highly increases during a day, but decreases to what it was at the beginning of the day or even lower, a considerable bearish retracement is occurred.
The candlestick of this price action in the daily time frame is a Shooting Star.
The Shooting Star in the daily time frame is a very strong signal for...
Weak Hammer (Example):
The chart shows the price of Bitcoin vs. US Dollar. In 02/02/2018, as it says, buyers couldn't raise the price above the day open price, the D1 candle seems a Hammer with bearish body. So the final result wasn't clear and the next day, sellers could pullback the price. (Consider the red thick arrow)
Hammer, The first sign of the beginning Ascending wave:
Hammer shows that the war between buyers and sellers, at the beginning of the day sellers could create significant reduction in price, with their high investments. But when the price had come to the lowest extent of it, many of buyers have entered with more investments than sellers. And again they could...
Conditions of a Perfect Hammer:
. Body height must be short.
. The total height of the candle must be taller than the Daily ATR-264. The taller the candle is, the stronger the Hammer is.
. The lower shadow’s length should be very tall. It is better to be over 75 percent of the Daily ATR-264.
. The upper shadow does not exist, or if it does, it is very small. It...
Hammer Candle Stick Definition
If there was a large drop in price in the middle of the day, but before the day ended it increased to what it was at the beginning of the day and even more, a significant upward return occurred. The candlestick of this change (move) will be a Hammer in a daily time frame. A Hammer formation on the daily time frame is a very strong...
I've been curious as to what players would be involved to have the Crypto world have a one trillion dollar market cap. Looking at the top 20 coins, it looks as though we sit around $600 Billion, so less than a doubling of the current market. I truly believe the "FOMO" hasn't even arrived in the market and once they catch on that we'll see the trillion dollar...

What you see in the bottom of the screen is a script I recently published just for fun; it's a momentum measurement for bitcoin against several fiat pairs and crypto pairs, and all summed together. The top of the screen is essentially the btc price, but somewhat more...
The 50 and 100 sma are my guides for price movement on my charts. Price trends, ranges or consolidates. When price moves in between the 50 and 100 sma I call that my in side range. Price can move quickly through both or mostly it will consolidate. If I enter an inside range trade I do not expect to have price momentum going through that space. Also many times...
This is a great example of the 1-2-3-Breakout pattern on Bitcoin using the Daily chart.
This pattern can be applied to any equity. Chart patterns represent human behavior and that is a constant among all asset classes.
Point 1 - The First Test - The New High
Price reaches a new high and pulls back when investors take profits.
Point 2 - Second...
This entire thread will be for STRUCTURE!
In the "idea updates" column I will be posting all types of
corrective and impulsive structures!
When it comes to trading the waves, the 12345ABC we all
love to draw when we first learned about the theory will be
useless (most of the time)
What we should focus on is if we're in correction, and if so
how the heck can...
This is my trading plan. You can look through my published ideas to look at other examples.
I need 3 reasons to enter a trade.
1. A clear direction. I use 3 emas 50, 100, and 200 as shown in the chart.(Required)
2. A horizontal support/resistance area. (Required)
3. Price retrace to one of the emas to act as resistance. (preferably than fib)
4. Fib continuation...
SNAP is showing a nice example, how the ForkTrading can catch the markets path.
Not only are the Forks a great way to identify the highly potential trend continuation, but also catching the "frequency" of the markets.
Watch this chart closely and observe your thoughts ;-)

One of the strongest setups are the ones that are being formed by the dual time frame momentum. By using multiple time frames you will be able to create a high probability setup. Key rule is: Large/High time frame for trend and Small/Low time frame for your entry. Personally I mostly I like to hold short term positions, so I use the daily time frame for the trend...

There are so many reasons why 90% of retail traders fail. One of the main reasons is because retail traders over trade. They fear missing an opportunity and because of this they think there is always an opportunity when in reality there isn't. As traders, it is our job to find high probable setups. Probable setups are limited though... so you need to have...
It is a statistical fact that upwards of 90% of retail traders lose money in the Forex market. There are many reasons for this, but perhaps the most important reason is entry. Retail traders often get terrible entries. Even if they are right, their entry may be so poor that their opportunity for profit is not enough to make them consistently...
