Been away from trading due to holidays (Thank you Isreal you were amazing!!)
So here we are in a long term descending channel from a higher timeframe. Price will most certainly reach the top and re-test it.
And during this long term channel, we have a shorter ascending channel with a perfect place to enter.
If it was only that easy ever retail trader...
I'm expecting price to return to the long term descending channel as there is a lot of liquidity there for the taking.
I expect this to happen via the channel breaking (wiping out stop losses) then price to continue downward. I have a trade idea already generated before price even reaches that destination, so when it does I am fully prepared for any...
NZDUSD is finishing the Accumulation Phase and slowly moving towards Distribution, we should first see Re-Accumulation and a Correction in the uptrend before starting Distribution.
Trading with the Smart Money - Wyckoff Method.
gbp usd has broken and retested the demand zone, banks/institutions have longed this from previous daily demand (green) and have no takene profit which is coincidentally consolidating around minor demand zone.
These sequences happen over and over and over again. Typical rally base rally move. Expect big bullish candles to occur.
AUD/USD is at a monthly demand zone, there are numerous traps enticing retail traders to short. E.g. bouncing off the weekly trend line, and a so called area of resistance on the daily.
COT data also shows banks are becoming slightly bullish and reducing short positions.
Don't short basically.
No point letting this trade turn into a looser now. Two lower highs created, so some structure to help create a logical place to move the stop too. Stop will be now at 1.46825. Worry free trade now, let the market go where it wants on this pair now.
Updates to follow.
Did you just hand back over some money to the market after what you thought was a great entry? But why, that "support" looks fantastic? You might have thought;
Multiple touches in the past, strong zone.
Price created some nice bullish Price Action, it must be bouncing off the support.
We had a huge strong move up not too long ago.
This is accumulation within that...
Notice the 5 touches of previous resistance marked by the blue arrows. This "strong level" entices people to sell and place their stops just above the level. See how price begins to fall from this level marked at the red arrow? This also draws more sellers into the market; people don't want to miss out; then BOOM! Price breaks the level and wipes out everyone who...
This could potentially turn into a stop hunt. As we see price created the illusion it was bouncing off support (see the blue arrow), and has now returned and broken below. 95% of retail traders are told to buy at support and sell at resistance.Guess where they are also told to place their stops? Right at the dollar sign. Liquidity the banks need to fill their...
As we can see the black area indicates a potential zone where retail traders are tricked into going long by the illusion of fake support. Large institutions and experienced traders know most novices will have their stop losses just below this level. Institutions and banks manipulate these levels and take out stop losses to gain liquidity in the market. Once a stop...
Can you figure out the differences in the three pinbars highlighted...bearing in mind that the shape, length, or colour of the pinbar does not matter in this case.
Pinbars occur in the market as a result of two scenarios:
1) When institutional traders place large positions in order to reverse what we call a "trend"
2) When institutional traders take profit off...
Hopefully, my annotations are simple enough. It is classic Sam Seiden but with a twist from my own experiences as a trader. I entered this trade when price was in the supply zone and i will be looking to close it in the next 2 hours...depending on the candle formation.
