It is Not over until It’s Over

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a trendline trade setup. The price heads towards the North, and upon finding its support, it keeps moving towards the upside. At some point, it seems that the price is about to make a breakout at the trendline. However, the trendline works as a level of support and produces a beautiful bullish engulfing candle ending up offering a long entry. Let us find out how that happens.


The chart shows that the price makes a bullish move and comes down to make a bearish correction. It makes a bullish move again but finds its resistance around the same level. At the moment, the chart suggests that the bears have the upper hand.

The chart produces a Doji candle having a long lower spike. It pushes the price towards the North, and the price makes a breakout at the highest high. The last move confirms that the bull has taken control. The buyers may look for buying opportunities. Assume you are a trendline trader. Do you see anything?

Yes, you can draw an up-trending trendline. The last candle comes out as a bearish engulfing candle. It suggests that the price may make a bearish correction. As a trendline trader, you are to wait for the price to produce a bullish reversal candle at the trendline’s support to go long on the chart.

The chart produces two more candles that are bearish. The last candle closes just below the trendline’s support. It seems that the price is about to make a breakout at the trendline. The next candle is going to be very crucial for both. If the next candle comes out as a bullish reversal candle, the buyers are going to push the price towards the North. On the other hand, if the next candle comes out as a bearish candle closing below the trendline’s support, the sellers may push the price towards the South. Let us find out what happens next.
