In today’s article, we are going to demonstrate an example of H1 breakout strategy. It is a typical example of the rule ‘Set and Forget’. To trade on the H1 chart, we must be patient and let the price do its job once we have taken entry. Let us proceed.
The chart shows that the last candle breaches closing below the level of support. As far as the H1 breakout strategy is concerned, traders must wait for the next candle to be bearish closing well below the breakout candle.
The last candle comes out as a bearish candle closing well below the breakout candle. The sellers wait for such candle to confirm a breakout. The sellers may trigger a short entry right after the last candle closes. Stop loss is to be set above where the trend starts and Take Profit is to be set with a 1:1 risk-reward.
The next candle comes out as a bearish candle as well. The sellers must let the price to hit the target. To be precise, they shall not even look at the chart. Stop Loss and Take Profit are set. All they can do is let the price do its job.
Where does that one come from? The chart produces a bullish engulfing candle. It is a strong bullish reversal candle, which may change the trend. To be honest, a candle like this may intimidate any price action trader. Do not forget this is an H1 chart and the entry is taken on H1 breakout strategy. Set and Forget rule comes very handy in this trade setup. Let us assume, we do not even know that the chart produces such a candle. We let the market do its own job.
The next candle comes out as a bearish inside bar. It looks more ominous. If the next candle comes as a bullish engulfing candle, the sellers will be in serious trouble. Let us proceed to the next chart.
The next candle comes out as a doji candle followed by another doji candle. However, the price heads towards Take Profit level and hits the target at last. If we keep looking at such chart, would we be able to hold ourselves back from closing the entry manually? It may get very tough for the traders to hold their nerves with such price action when a trade is running. If a trader trades on the daily or the H4 chart, he may consider closing the entry manually. With the H1 chart trading, traders may not do this. In other words, set and forget when you are trading on the H1 chart.
