The Trendline is an excellent trading tool that the price action traders love using on their charts. Drawing trendline as accurate as it can get and adjustment with spikes are two factors that traders are to look after before using trendline. Another factor trendline traders often need to do is drawing multiple trendlines on the same chart. In this lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of that.
The chart shows that the price after finding its support at the trendline heads towards the North and makes a new highest high. Thus, this is a valid trendline. Ideally, the buyers are to wait for the price to come back to the trendline again and to produce a bullish reversal candle to go long on the pair. Let us proceed to find out what happens next.
The price does not come at the trendline. It finds its support well above the trendline and heads towards the North again. This is annoying, is not it? Do not get annoyed. Concentrate on the chart. Do you see anything interesting? Have a look at the next chart.
We can draw another trendline on the same chart since the price has a bounce and makes a new highest high. Traders are to wait again for the price to come back at the trendline and to produce a bullish reversal candle to offer them a long entry.
Wow, this time, the price comes at the trendline and produces a bullish reversal candle. Traders have been waiting for such price action. By flipping over to the next chart and an upside breakout, traders may grab some green pips.
The chart shows that the price comes back near the trendline’s support again, then heads towards the North. It consolidates hard on the minor charts, as it seems. The point here is that the price does not come at the first drawn trendline or produces a bullish reversal candle. It comes at the second drawn line, and this time, it creates the bullish reversal candle right at the trendline’s support. It heads towards the North and may have offered entry as well.
The Bottom Line
In most cases, the price does not come at the first drawn trendline. It has the tendency to come at the second drawn trendline more. It is often seen that the price obeys the third drawn trendline as well. Thus, if we are to trade on the trendline, we may keep an eye on the chart to draw a trendline as many times as we need to.
