Look for Such Price Action to Trade on the ABC Pattern

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of the ABC pattern trading. The trend-initiating candle comes out as a bullish engulfing candle followed by a bullish breakout. The price then makes a bearish correction and makes a bullish move upon producing a bullish reversal candle at a flipped support. Let us demonstrate with the charts how it happens.


The price has been bearish, but it has produced a bullish engulfing candle at the support zone. The buyers are to wait for the price to head towards the North and make a bullish breakout at the last swing high. Let us proceed to the next chart.
