The H1-15M Breakout Trading: Concentrate on Breakout and Reversal Candle

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a trade setup based on the H1-15M chart combination. Usually, the straighter the first move, the better it is.  However, the price sometimes consolidates in the first arm as well. Such consolidation makes a move look weak and may hold us back from eyeing on the chart. We try to find out whether we should skip eyeing on such a chart or not.

The H1-15M Combination Trading in a Bearish Market

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of the H1-15M combination trading strategy offering a short entry. In one of our previous lessons, we demonstrated an example of a long entry. Let us see how it ends up offering us the entry.

When a Double Top and an Engulfing Candle Comes Together

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a chart where the price heads towards the downside upon making a double top. At the second rejection, the chart produces a bearish engulfing candle. Usually, a combination of these two does not usually go wrong. The price does not make a deep consolidation afterward. However, it still heads towards the South with good bearish momentum. Let us have a look at how it happens.

The H1-15M Combination Trading Has a Lot to Offer

In today’s article, we are going to demonstrate a combination strategy. The combination is made of the H1 and the 15M chart. Since these two are busy intraday charts, thus a trader can find a good number of entries with this strategy. Let us now proceed and find out how it works.

Fibonacci Trading: How Fibonacci Levels Give Clues to the Traders

In today’s Fibonacci lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a chart, which makes a bearish move. We dig into the charts and find out how we can take an entry based on Fibonacci levels and how the levels may help us giving clues to execute our plan. Let us get started.

Determining Higher Highs or Lower Lows to Draw Fibonacci Levels

Fibonacci levels are obtained by using higher highs or lower lows. A chart may have many higher highs/lower lows. Thus, Fibonacci levels can be obtained at different levels. A trader may find it difficult to spot out the levels where the price may react. In today’s lesson, we are going to see how different higher highs may lead us to having Fibonacci levels where the price does not react.

Fibonacci Trading: Be sure whether the Level is Held or Breached

Breakout plays a very vital role in the Forex market. Traders use breakout, breakout levels to make a trading decision. Fibonacci traders are to make sure whether a particular level is breached or it holds the price to make a better trading decision. In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example where Fibonacci traders may need to concentrate more to be sure about the Fibonacci level from where the price trends. Let us get started.

Fibonacci Trading: When Momentum is Lacking

Traders wait for the price to trend from 61.8% Fibonacci level. This is what attracts more traders to trade, which generates good momentum. When the price trends from 61.8% level, it usually goes up to 161.8%. Since the price gets enough space to move, it offers better risk-reward. This is another reason that Fibonacci traders love to trade in a chart when the price trends from 61.8%. However, the Forex market is uncertain. We may see that the price does not head towards 161.8% with good momentum upon trending from 61.8% from time to time. In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of this.

Spot the Chart Accordingly before Triggering for an Entry

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a chart, which may entice traders to take entry more than once. Some traders may get themselves engaged in taking entry. We find out why we price action traders skip taking those entries. Let us get started.

Fibonacci Levels Help Traders Make Better Trading Decision

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate a chart where the price makes a strong bearish move from a Fibonacci level. It has two messages, which we will find out soon. Let us get started with the chart’s price action.

Fibonacci Trading and Deeper Correction

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example where the chart produces a reversal candle at a Fibonacci level, but the price does not head towards the trend’s direction. It then makes a deeper correction. It finds its new resistance and heads towards the trend’s direction with good momentum. Let us now have a look.

Fibonacci Trading: How Fibonacci Levels Can be Used in Trading?

Fibonacci levels and price action around those levels give traders clue what they should do with their potential trade setup. The 61.8% level is the most significant level, which is paid attention by the traders to make a trading decision. The price usually goes towards the level of 161.8% when it trends from 61.8%. Since it creates enough space for the price to travel, different traders trade and make use of the wave-length in differently.  We will learn some other strategies that are integrated with Fibonacci levels. Meanwhile, let us demonstrate an example of a chart where the price reacts at 61.8% and trends towards 161.8% afterwards.

Draw Fibonacci Levels on Your Trading Chart

Fibonacci traders are to find out a good move, followed by a price correction. They keep their eyes on the 61.8% level with extreme attention. If the level of 61.8% produces a reversal candle, traders trigger for entry. Usually, the price goes up to the level of 161.8% if the price trends from 61.8%. This allows an excellent risk-reward to the traders as well. In today’s article, we are going to demonstrate an example of how the golden ratio of 61.8% plays such an important role in moving the market towards the trend. Let us get started.

Fibonacci Trading: The Golden Ratio

Fibonacci trading is one of the most prolific trading methods, which is widely used by Forex traders. Retracement length, Fibo levels as well as reversal candle are three factors that Fibonacci traders need to pay attention to. In today’s article, we are going to demonstrate an example of a chart, which makes an excellent bearish move after having a retracement. The length of retracement, the most significant Fibo level, and the reversal signal all play their part in this example. Thus, fasten your seat belt and read through.

Fibonacci Retracement: A Magic Trading Tool

Financial traders rely a lot on a tool called Fibonacci Retracement. This shows the percentage of retracement that the price makes after making a strong bullish/bearish move. The percentage of retracement is very significant to the traders. There are some particular levels, where the price reacts heavily and creates a new trend. Thus, financial traders use Fibonacci Retracement tool to measure retracement length and find the potential whether it is going to create a new trend or not. The Forex traders love using the Fibonacci Retracement tool as well. Once we know how to draw it on the chart accordingly, we find out that the currency pairs on almost all the timeframes obey the Fibonacci retracement ratio.

We never know what is around the corner.

Riding on a Trend is rewarding

The trend is the trader's friend. To be able to spot the trend and reversal point are the two most important factors of price action trading. In the Forex market on the minor charts, trend changes in a second. However, the trend usually continues on major charts such as the H4, the daily as well as weekly. In today's lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of how we can ride on a trend and make most of it.
