In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a chart where the price gets caught within a horizontal channel. We’ll try to learn how we can trade and make the most of it. Let us get started.
The chart shows that, after being bearish, the price bounces at the drawn level. It produces a bullish engulfing candle and heads towards the North. The chart is bullish-biased. Thus, price-action traders are to look for long entries. Let us see what happens.
The price finds its resistance instead. It produces a bearish inside bar, but it does not make a new higher high. Thus, the buyers do not get an opportunity to go long at the top. The price heads towards the South towards the level of support. Since the level has been working as a level of support, the buyers may wait for the price to produce a bullish reversal candle to go long in the pair.
The chart shows that the price produces a bullish engulfing candle at the support zone. The buyers may trigger a long entry by setting stop loss below the candle’s lowest low and by setting take profit at the level of resistance. The risk-reward looks good.
The price heads towards the North with good bullish momentum. It hits the target in a hurry too. At the moment, the price is right at the level of resistance. Can you guess what traders should do now? Look at the next chart.
The chart shows that the price produces a bearish engulfing candle at the resistance zone. A point is to be noticed here that the chart produces a bullish spinning top. However, it cannot be considered a breakout. It rather produces a bearish engulfing candle. Thus, the traders may go short in the pair by setting take profit at the support zone and by setting stop-loss above the last candle’s highest high.
The price heads towards the South with an average pace. It consolidates for a while and resumes its bearish journey. The price has been roaming around the level of support for quite a while. It means the support gets even stronger. Look at the last candle. It comes out as a bullish engulfing candle. The buyers may trigger another long entry here. Let us find out what happens next.
The price hits the target. The price makes a long bearish correction and tests the buyers’ patience, though. However, in the end, the buyers come out with their pips. Trading is beautiful when the price moves like this, isn’t it?
