Do Not Be Biased, Take Decisions According to the Chart

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a chart that makes a good bullish move but ends up having a rejection at a double top resistance. The price then shows the potential to make a bullish breakout. However, it has another rejection around the last week’s high and makes a bearish breakout. It looks good for the sellers at the time. We find out what happens afterward.


This is the H4 chart. The price makes a long bullish move. It ranges for a while and then continues its bullish journey again. Look at the last candle on the chart. It comes out as a bearish inside bar. Do not miss the point that the candle is produced right at the resistance, where the price has had a rejection.

The chart produces a bullish candle to start the next week. It then ranges for a while and produces two bullish candles. It seems that the price may head towards the North and makes a bullish breakout at the last weekly high.

It does not. It rather finds its resistance around the same level. Moreover, it produces a bearish engulfing candle. To be more precise, the chart produces an evening star. It is a strong bearish reversal candle. Let us wait and see what the price does next.

The chart produces a long bearish candle breaching the last swing low. The breakout is significant since the price trends from the last weekly low. The sellers may keep their eyes in the pair to go short. Before going short on this chart, the sellers shall wait for the price to make a bullish retracement since the price is within the last weekly range. Keep that in mind that the price is to make a bullish correction to offer a short entry.

The price does not make a bullish correction. It rather consolidates and produces a bearish reversal candle. Since the price is within the last weekly range, so it is not a short signal.

Here it goes. The price gets choppy. This chart becomes a risky chart to trade. Thus, traders might as well skip eyeing on the chart to trade at. At first, it looks good for the buyers. Then, it shows potential for the Bear to dominate since the price has several rejections at the same level. However, it ends up being an extremely choppy chart.  Thus, do not be biased with your initial assumption. Wait for the breakout, confirmation, and then trade.
