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 the price action stays above this line, we have a bullish trend. Lines with a negative slope that act as resistance to the price action show that net-supply is increasing. As long as the 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 more points there are to connect, the stronger a trend 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. This tool can also be used to illustrate trends on indicators.

BTCUSD: Bitcoin - hopium
156 0 4
Bitcoin - hopium

Nothing more than playing around with the monthly log and heikin ashi candles to show the trend better. Pure hopium speculation... Until we see some green on this time frame my inner bear is still winning. Both RSI and Stoch are still pointing down as well, which indicates to me that we aren't out of the current downtrend just yet, despite all the bulls on ...

Seeing Machines uptrend continuation

This is my take on the recent events and positive SP movement in recent weeks for Seeing Machines (LSE:SEE). N.B. I am not a professional trader, or consider myself in any way an export in TA, i have produced this for my own benefit and thought i would share my view. 12p seems to be providing some resistance this week but the SP has consolidated nicely above 10p. ...

AUDUSD TRADE 13/06/2018

Descending trendline is still holding and price has rejected the trendline again (4th time) Fib drawn from the last bounce of the trendline to the new low created. This price has rejected this fib at the 61.8 level. Shooting star to break through the MA's and close below the 0.75750 level. Price could retest 0.75750 and continue to fall. I'm looking for a new ...

Bear continuation confirmed by some indicators

I added some tools to my portfolio and I am testing them these days. Two of them are EMA and SMA - we have a price crossing under SMA 100, which is a sell signal. SAR indicator signals the same. Possible Fibo retracement bounce from 50% level of previous downward move. We are probably not gonna touch the upper trend line. Going short, trade opened.

The 3 dips are getting shallower each time, BTC may slowly rise.

In a few days time we may just see a slow reversal of this down trend to an up trend, and not the V shaped dip people expect to confirm the bottom is in. There isn't much appetite (at the moment) to sell or buy on mass to push the price in either direction, even though it would be very easy with the low volume. My previous idea is still holding reasonably ...

BTC - Critical Support test coming

Daily chart showing BITTREX:BTCUSDT approaching the bottom of the parallel channel and more importantly, the Weekly bear trend it left back in April. Should bottom of the channel break then there is a good chance of us returning to the overall downward trend that start at beginning of the year. #PrayForBTC

When is the bottom?

Very simply - One rising trend-line seems to be dominating and two downward trend-lines. Intersections occurring on 9th July and 19th Aug. Consensus 2018 had little immediate effect on Bitcoin, which I think lead to a bit of a sell off. Price changes on previous Consensus events have been varied, but for some reason people bought into the hype and were left a ...

VIB yet again showing me why it is my fav coin to trade. Another good gain last night/this morning for a 13% profit taken. It is now retracing sharply again and nearing my buy zone. Will be watching closely when it enters this purple area. Starting around the 61.8% fib level.

I have been trading TRX the past week or so with some good results. On the 30 min time frame it seems to have formed a possible Elliot wave and started the ABC correction. I have now shorted my position at the above 4 hr resistance and will be looking for a lower entry at around 800 sats or slightly lower on the trend line. Watching very closely! Main net ...
