Equal Highs and Equal Lows

A simple indicator that detects if two candles lows or highs are equal. The pattern simply indicates the possibility of a reversal. However, many traders also use the Equal highs/lows within a broader context of market analysis to provide insights for trend traders, especially to detect pullbacks.

Equal Highs/Lows are a pattern that can indicate a shift in a trend direction or to find pullbacks within an established trend. The idea behind the equal highs and lows is that the first candle shows a strong move in the current direction, and the second candle pauses the previous candlestick price action. It's a clear sign that the momentum is slowing down. This insight is valuable for traders and can detect a potential change in the trend direction.

  • Use the pattern to find reversals.
  • Use the pattern to find pullbacks.
