Chart pattern scanners?

Hi Forex, hope everyone’s been catching pips this week.
This has probably been posted on the sub before but the search function on Reddit isn’t too great, so here I am asking again... are there any websites/MT4 extensions that detect chart patterns such as Head and Shoulders, Double Tops, Cup and Handle etc?
To be clear, I already have strategies in place to qualify when to trade these patterns, and when not to, so I’d still be doing that when the scanner detects a pattern. I only trade 3 majors at the moment and with the aid of the scanner, I could potentially start tracking other pairs too.
Cheers

Trading Update: exited FET for 1.5% loss, into MVIS

I'm not quite sure what the best method is of letting you guys know what I'm doing with my trades. I try to be transparent (I posted about me exiting the FET trade this morning) but I also want you guys to be able to make your own informed decisions. Maybe at the end of the trading day, I can do a recap and then show you what I'm looking for tomorrow. Here's mine from today:

Overview for FET. This cypher pattern formed. I entered at $0.3580, not great entry but I was confident after seeing that little white reversal candle, second from the right, yesterday. Then today happened and I wasn't convinced while watching the price action and level two data. Just not much buy side pressure. I sold for really small loss this morning. Ideally today should've been a bullish daily candle, the start of that move up, but it just wasn't.
https://preview.redd.it/mn05wq0r8sz41.png?width=1828&format=png&auto=webp&s=62303d393d66a9a139dc8d4321eab489a6eb6f0e

Then this happened today:

https://preview.redd.it/i135hwa0asz41.png?width=1828&format=png&auto=webp&s=39372d64753ea7caee1cd02fdc2288fdff36c91f
Smaller timeframe for FET: This is called a head and shoulders pattern. I haven't seen it in a while but saw it when it formed. The target downwards is from the top of the head to the neckline. It just wasn't a good day for FET so I dipped. No worries on a 1.5% loss. It could go back up, but I trade off the charts and this one wasn't looking great today. So far we can consider my $0.5976 prediction a failure unless we see some strong bullish momentum tomorrow.

And I got into MVIS:

https://preview.redd.it/gnaycg42bsz41.png?width=1828&format=png&auto=webp&s=7bafe1b9ca6104f883f6bf7b4c243090a979ce71
That daily candle looks strong. It closed above the wick of the previous candle. The next resistance is the red line as a daily level of resistance, which you can also see that the price has already pierced it previously.


https://preview.redd.it/lpr7kcp9csz41.png?width=1828&format=png&auto=webp&s=8a0c1f1cf299f4e222d72f5119cbc48ad2f27415
15min chart. The first arrow, the price failed in the pennant pattern, but rebounded nicely in the afternoon. This is what caught my attention. I love fibonacci trading, so on the smaller blue arrow, I saw it bounce off a fib level and the fifteen minute candle that closed as bullish engulfing, I bought. Then it formed the rest of the pennant. Admittedly, this week I've been struggling with entries. I think this being my first week with webull is part of that, but maybe I'm just a retarded trader lol. I set my stop loss and take profits when I bought, and I've learned to never change those levels after I set them. It sucks but things can become way worse once you start moving your stop loss lower and lower. It is technically underneath a level of daily support, so that's good I guess. MVIS hit my previous target of $1.0346 (weekly resistance) today. If MVIS has downwards momentum and starts to break the $0.9513 level, that would be a bad sign. Although it did fail that pattern this morning and rebound nicely afternoon, so I'll assess things if that happens and might enter another trade here. Risk is standard 5% of my account

So that's what I'm doing. Currently 0/1 this week in penny stocks, but I made 5% in forex from betting on usd strength against jpy. So I'm still feeling good. Sorry there isn't a great way to notify my 1,000 followers about what I'm doing immediately. I hope this helps.
Cheers!

The Top 12 Chart Trends You MUST Learn to Trade successfully in 2020

The Top 12 Chart Trends You MUST Learn to Trade successfully in 2020
The Top 12 Chart Trends You MUST Learn to Trade successfully in 2020

If you want to be a proficient technical analyst, you've got to practice understanding chart trends.
Chart patterns, with great profits, can generate very reliable signals and reward traders.
We cover the top 12 chart trends with examples in this article and show you how to use them and how to make money trading with them.

The Head and Shoulders Pattern
The head and shoulders pattern is considered to be one of the most effective models for reversal. It begins when the price rises to the top after a long bullish run, and pulls down.
Shortly thereafter, the price increases again to a slightly higher rate but again decreases.
Finally, for the third time, the price goes up but only hits a point of the first high.
It pulls back after that and completes the pattern.

Head and Shoulders Pattern 2020

Inverse Head and Shoulders Pattern
There is also, as with other trends, an inverse head and shoulders that
happens after an prolonged downtrend and suggests that the price will go up.

Inverse Head and Shoulders Pattern 2020

Cup And Handle Patterns

A pattern on the cup and handle is a bullish pattern of continuity.
It is made up of two parts-a cup and a handle.
When a cup is full, the handle is shaped on its right side.
If a breakdown on a line of resistance follows, and traders find it a precursor for an uptrend.

Cup And Handle Patterns 2020
Cup And Handle Patterns (b) 2020


As you can see, there is nothing difficult about recognizing and trading a 'Cup and Handle' pattern.
Upon entering the trade on a resistance retest, you can put your stop loss below a handle's low and let the trade do its job.

Ascending Triangle
One of the most common patterns among traders are both ascending triangles and descending ones.
We should take a look at it from more of a rational viewpoint to really help you understand this trend.
The ascending triangle is formed when the price is incapable of breaking a resistance but, at the same time , higher lows form.

Ascending Triangle Pattern 2020

As you may see in the above example , the price bounces from resistance but on each bounce it is unable to make a lower low.
That gives us a bullish signal that a potential break is about to occur.

Ascending Triangle Chart Pattern 2020

Descending Triangle
Inverse to the Ascending Triangle, the Descending Triangle is noticeable when
the market bounces from support but can not hit higher altitudes.

Descending Triangle pattern 2020


Descending Triangle Chart Pattern 2020



The Falling Wedge Pattern
Falling wedge is a bullish trend of reversal that happens most of the time while
the price is going down but we can see divergence on one of our oscillators.
That means that while the price goes down, sellers
get tired and we can expect a reversal soon.

The Falling Wedge Pattern Chart Pattern 2020

Rising Wedge
Reversal of Dropping Wedge, price is moving higher
but in your oscillator you can find weakening clues.

Rising Wedge Chart Pattern 2020

Double Top Pattern

Typically the double top pattern is made at
the end of the trends as a toping shape.
It is a bearish reversal trend characterized by the peak which is
followed shortly by the second at the same or very close price point.
The double top pattern is true until
the price breaks below the highs rendered support.
We use the same word "neckline" that is
used for the Head and Shoulders pattern as well.
You may either join the trade after the
neckline is broken, or wait for the neckline's retest.


Double Top Pattern Chart Pattern 2020


Double Bottom Pattern

The Double Top opposite is the Double Bottom pattern
that is made at the bottom of the downtrend.
The Double Bottom is defined as having two
bottoms at a price point equal to or identical.
Just as with the Double Top pattern, you can
enter either at the "neckline" break or at its retest.

Double Bottom Pattern Chart Pattern 2020



Flags

Flags are technological patterns that can be understood
as a pause in the trend that underlies.
Following a rapid market pattern, flags are spotted as
consolidation, and they signify the continuation after the breakout.
We have a Bull and Bear flags, just as with all map trends.

Conclusion
Classic chart patterns are one of the oldest sections of technical analysis and have been proved several
times as a practical way to assist technical traders in determining the next course of the market.
That being said, when making trade decisions, a trader
should not neglect the context and current market conditions.

Where is Bitcoin Going and When?

Where is Bitcoin Going and When?

The Federal Reserve and the United States government are pumping extreme amounts of money into the economy, already totaling over $484 billion. They are doing so because it already had a goal to inflate the United States Dollar (USD) so that the market can continue to all-time highs. It has always had this goal. They do not care how much inflation goes up by now as we are going into a depression with the potential to totally crash the US economy forever. They believe the only way to save the market from going to zero or negative values is to inflate it so much that it cannot possibly crash that low. Even if the market does not dip that low, inflation serves the interest of powerful people.
The impending crash of the stock market has ramifications for Bitcoin, as, though there is no direct ongoing-correlation between the two, major movements in traditional markets will necessarily affect Bitcoin. According to the Blockchain Center’s Cryptocurrency Correlation Tool, Bitcoin is not correlated with the stock market. However, when major market movements occur, they send ripples throughout the financial ecosystem which necessary affect even ordinarily uncorrelated assets.
Therefore, Bitcoin will reach X price on X date after crashing to a price of X by X date.

Stock Market Crash

The Federal Reserve has caused some serious consternation with their release of ridiculous amounts of money in an attempt to buoy the economy. At face value, it does not seem to have any rationale or logic behind it other than keeping the economy afloat long enough for individuals to profit financially and politically. However, there is an underlying basis to what is going on which is important to understand in order to profit financially.
All markets are functionally price probing systems. They constantly undergo a price-discovery process. In a fiat system, money is an illusory and a fundamentally synthetic instrument with no intrinsic value – similar to Bitcoin. The primary difference between Bitcoin is the underlying technology which provides a slew of benefits that fiat does not. Fiat, however, has an advantage in being able to have the support of powerful nation-states which can use their might to insure the currency’s prosperity.
Traditional stock markets are composed of indices (pl. of index). Indices are non-trading market instruments which are essentially summaries of business values which comprise them. They are continuously recalculated throughout a trading day, and sometimes reflected through tradable instruments such as Exchange Traded Funds or Futures. Indices are weighted by market capitalizations of various businesses.
Price theory essentially states that when a market fails to take out a new low in a given range, it will have an objective to take out the high. When a market fails to take out a new high, it has an objective to make a new low. This is why price-time charts go up and down, as it does this on a second-by-second, minute-by-minute, day-by-day, and even century-by-century basis. Therefore, market indices will always return to some type of bull market as, once a true low is formed, the market will have a price objective to take out a new high outside of its’ given range – which is an all-time high. Instruments can only functionally fall to zero, whereas they can grow infinitely.
So, why inflate the economy so much?
Deflation is disastrous for central banks and markets as it raises the possibility of producing an overall price objective of zero or negative values. Therefore, under a fractional reserve system with a fiat currency managed by a central bank – the goal of the central bank is to depreciate the currency. The dollar is manipulated constantly with the intention of depreciating its’ value.
Central banks have a goal of continued inflated fiat values. They tend to ordinarily contain it at less than ten percent (10%) per annum in order for the psyche of the general populace to slowly adjust price increases. As such, the markets are divorced from any other logic. Economic policy is the maintenance of human egos, not catering to fundamental analysis. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth is well-known not to be a measure of actual growth or output. It is a measure of increase in dollars processed. Banks seek to produce raising numbers which make society feel like it is growing economically, making people optimistic. To do so, the currency is inflated, though inflation itself does not actually increase growth. When society is optimistic, it spends and engages in business – resulting in actual growth. It also encourages people to take on credit and debts, creating more fictional fiat.
Inflation is necessary for markets to continue to reach new heights, generating positive emotional responses from the populace, encouraging spending, encouraging debt intake, further inflating the currency, and increasing the sale of government bonds. The fiat system only survives by generating more imaginary money on a regular basis.
Bitcoin investors may profit from this by realizing that stock investors as a whole always stand to profit from the market so long as it is managed by a central bank and does not collapse entirely. If those elements are filled, it has an unending price objective to raise to new heights. It also allows us to realize that this response indicates that the higher-ups believe that the economy could crash in entirety, and it may be wise for investors to have multiple well-thought-out exit strategies.

Economic Analysis of Bitcoin

The reason why the Fed is so aggressively inflating the economy is due to fears that it will collapse forever or never rebound. As such, coupled with a global depression, a huge demand will appear for a reserve currency which is fundamentally different than the previous system. Bitcoin, though a currency or asset, is also a market. It also undergoes a constant price-probing process. Unlike traditional markets, Bitcoin has the exact opposite goal. Bitcoin seeks to appreciate in value and not depreciate. This has a quite different affect in that Bitcoin could potentially become worthless and have a price objective of zero.
Bitcoin was created in 2008 by a now famous mysterious figure known as Satoshi Nakamoto and its’ open source code was released in 2009. It was the first decentralized cryptocurrency to utilize a novel protocol known as the blockchain. Up to one megabyte of data may be sent with each transaction. It is decentralized, anonymous, transparent, easy to set-up, and provides myriad other benefits. Bitcoin is not backed up by anything other than its’ own technology.
Bitcoin is can never be expected to collapse as a framework, even were it to become worthless. The stock market has the potential to collapse in entirety, whereas, as long as the internet exists, Bitcoin will be a functional system with a self-authenticating framework. That capacity to persist regardless of the actual price of Bitcoin and the deflationary nature of Bitcoin means that it has something which fiat does not – inherent value.
Bitcoin is based on a distributed database known as the “blockchain.” Blockchains are essentially decentralized virtual ledger books, replete with pages known as “blocks.” Each page in a ledger is composed of paragraph entries, which are the actual transactions in the block.
Blockchains store information in the form of numerical transactions, which are just numbers. We can consider these numbers digital assets, such as Bitcoin. The data in a blockchain is immutable and recorded only by consensus-based algorithms. Bitcoin is cryptographic and all transactions are direct, without intermediary, peer-to-peer.
Bitcoin does not require trust in a central bank. It requires trust on the technology behind it, which is open-source and may be evaluated by anyone at any time. Furthermore, it is impossible to manipulate as doing so would require all of the nodes in the network to be hacked at once – unlike the stock market which is manipulated by the government and “Market Makers”. Bitcoin is also private in that, though the ledge is openly distributed, it is encrypted. Bitcoin’s blockchain has one of the greatest redundancy and information disaster recovery systems ever developed.
Bitcoin has a distributed governance model in that it is controlled by its’ users. There is no need to trust a payment processor or bank, or even to pay fees to such entities. There are also no third-party fees for transaction processing. As the ledge is immutable and transparent it is never possible to change it – the data on the blockchain is permanent. The system is not easily susceptible to attacks as it is widely distributed. Furthermore, as users of Bitcoin have their private keys assigned to their transactions, they are virtually impossible to fake. No lengthy verification, reconciliation, nor clearing process exists with Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is based on a proof-of-work algorithm. Every transaction on the network has an associated mathetical “puzzle”. Computers known as miners compete to solve the complex cryptographic hash algorithm that comprises that puzzle. The solution is proof that the miner engaged in sufficient work. The puzzle is known as a nonce, a number used only once. There is only one major nonce at a time and it issues 12.5 Bitcoin. Once it is solved, the fact that the nonce has been solved is made public.
A block is mined on average of once every ten minutes. However, the blockchain checks every 2,016,000 minutes (approximately four years) if 201,600 blocks were mined. If it was faster, it increases difficulty by half, thereby deflating Bitcoin. If it was slower, it decreases, thereby inflating Bitcoin. It will continue to do this until zero Bitcoin are issued, projected at the year 2140. On the twelfth of May, 2020, the blockchain will halve the amount of Bitcoin issued when each nonce is guessed. When Bitcoin was first created, fifty were issued per block as a reward to miners. 6.25 BTC will be issued from that point on once each nonce is solved.
Unlike fiat, Bitcoin is a deflationary currency. As BTC becomes scarcer, demand for it will increase, also raising the price. In this, BTC is similar to gold. It is predictable in its’ output, unlike the USD, as it is based on a programmed supply. We can predict BTC’s deflation and inflation almost exactly, if not exactly. Only 21 million BTC will ever be produced, unless the entire network concedes to change the protocol – which is highly unlikely.
Some of the drawbacks to BTC include congestion. At peak congestion, it may take an entire day to process a Bitcoin transaction as only three to five transactions may be processed per second. Receiving priority on a payment may cost up to the equivalent of twenty dollars ($20). Bitcoin mining consumes enough energy in one day to power a single-family home for an entire week.

Trading or Investing?

The fundamental divide in trading revolves around the question of market structure. Many feel that the market operates totally randomly and its’ behavior cannot be predicted. For the purposes of this article, we will assume that the market has a structure, but that that structure is not perfect. That market structure naturally generates chart patterns as the market records prices in time. In order to determine when the stock market will crash, causing a major decline in BTC price, we will analyze an instrument, an exchange traded fund, which represents an index, as opposed to a particular stock. The price patterns of the various stocks in an index are effectively smoothed out. In doing so, a more technical picture arises. Perhaps the most popular of these is the SPDR S&P Standard and Poor 500 Exchange Traded Fund ($SPY).
In trading, little to no concern is given about value of underlying asset. We are concerned primarily about liquidity and trading ranges, which are the amount of value fluctuating on a short-term basis, as measured by volatility-implied trading ranges. Fundamental analysis plays a role, however markets often do not react to real-world factors in a logical fashion. Therefore, fundamental analysis is more appropriate for long-term investing.
The fundamental derivatives of a chart are time (x-axis) and price (y-axis). The primary technical indicator is price, as everything else is lagging in the past. Price represents current asking price and incorrectly implementing positions based on price is one of the biggest trading errors.
Markets and currencies ordinarily have noise, their tendency to back-and-fill, which must be filtered out for true pattern recognition. That noise does have a utility, however, in allowing traders second chances to enter favorable positions at slightly less favorable entry points. When you have any market with enough liquidity for historical data to record a pattern, then a structure can be divined. The market probes prices as part of an ongoing price-discovery process. Market technicians must sometimes look outside of the technical realm and use visual inspection to ascertain the relevance of certain patterns, using a qualitative eye that recognizes the underlying quantitative nature
Markets and instruments rise slower than they correct, however they rise much more than they fall. In the same vein, instruments can only fall to having no worth, whereas they could theoretically grow infinitely and have continued to grow over time. Money in a fiat system is illusory. It is a fundamentally synthetic instrument which has no intrinsic value. Hence, the recent seemingly illogical fluctuations in the market.
According to trade theory, the unending purpose of a market or instrument is to create and break price ranges according to the laws of supply and demand. We must determine when to trade based on each market inflection point as defined in price and in time as opposed to abandoning the trend (as the contrarian trading in this sub often does). Time and Price symmetry must be used to be in accordance with the trend. When coupled with a favorable risk to reward ratio, the ability to stay in the market for most of the defined time period, and adherence to risk management rules; the trader has a solid methodology for achieving considerable gains.
We will engage in a longer term market-oriented analysis to avoid any time-focused pressure. The Bitcoin market is open twenty-four-hours a day, so trading may be done when the individual is ready, without any pressing need to be constantly alert. Let alone, we can safely project months in advance with relatively high accuracy. Bitcoin is an asset which an individual can both trade and invest, however this article will be focused on trading due to the wide volatility in BTC prices over the short-term.

Technical Indicator Analysis of Bitcoin

Technical indicators are often considered self-fulfilling prophecies due to mass-market psychology gravitating towards certain common numbers yielded from them. They are also often discounted when it comes to BTC. That means a trader must be especially aware of these numbers as they can prognosticate market movements. Often, they are meaningless in the larger picture of things.
  • Volume – derived from the market itself, it is mostly irrelevant. The major problem with volume for stocks is that the US market open causes tremendous volume surges eradicating any intrinsic volume analysis. This does not occur with BTC, as it is open twenty-four-seven. At major highs and lows, the market is typically anemic. Most traders are not active at terminal discretes (peaks and troughs) because of levels of fear. Volume allows us confidence in time and price symmetry market inflection points, if we observe low volume at a foretold range of values. We can rationalize that an absolute discrete is usually only discovered and anticipated by very few traders. As the general market realizes it, a herd mentality will push the market in the direction favorable to defending it. Volume is also useful for swing trading, as chances for swing’s validity increases if an increase in volume is seen on and after the swing’s activation. Volume is steadily decreasing. Lows and highs are reached when volume is lower.
Therefore, due to the relatively high volume on the 12th of March, we can safely determine that a low for BTC was not reached.
  • VIX – Volatility Index, this technical indicator indicates level of fear by the amount of options-based “insurance” in portfolios. A low VIX environment, less than 20 for the S&P index, indicates a stable market with a possible uptrend. A high VIX, over 20, indicates a possible downtrend. VIX is essentially useless for BTC as BTC-based options do not exist. It allows us to predict the market low for $SPY, which will have an indirect impact on BTC in the short term, likely leading to the yearly low. However, it is equally important to see how VIX is changing over time, if it is decreasing or increasing, as that indicates increasing or decreasing fear. Low volatility allows high leverage without risk or rest. Occasionally, markets do rise with high VIX.
As VIX is unusually high, in the forties, we can be confident that a downtrend for the S&P 500 is imminent.
  • RSI (Relative Strength Index): The most important technical indicator, useful for determining highs and lows when time symmetry is not availing itself. Sometimes analysis of RSI can conflict in different time frames, easiest way to use it is when it is at extremes – either under 30 or over 70. Extremes can be used for filtering highs or lows based on time-and-price window calculations. Highly instructive as to major corrective clues and indicative of continued directional movement. Must determine if longer-term RSI values find support at same values as before. It is currently at 73.56.
  • Secondly, RSI may be used as a high or low filter, to observe the level that short-term RSI reaches in counter-trend corrections. Repetitions based on market movements based on RSI determine how long a trade should be held onto. Once a short term RSI reaches an extreme and stay there, the other RSI’s should gradually reach the same extremes. Once all RSI’s are at extreme highs, a trend confirmation should occur and RSI’s should drop to their midpoint.

Trend Definition Analysis of Bitcoin

Trend definition is highly powerful, cannot be understated. Knowledge of trend logic is enough to be a profitable trader, yet defining a trend is an arduous process. Multiple trends coexist across multiple time frames and across multiple market sectors. Like time structure, it makes the underlying price of the instrument irrelevant. Trend definitions cannot determine the validity of newly formed discretes. Trend becomes apparent when trades based in counter-trend inflection points continue to fail.
Downtrends are defined as an instrument making lower lows and lower highs that are recurrent, additive, qualified swing setups. Downtrends for all instruments are similar, except forex. They are fast and complete much quicker than uptrends. An average downtrend is 18 months, something which we will return to. An uptrend inception occurs when an instrument reaches a point where it fails to make a new low, then that low will be tested. After that, the instrument will either have a deep range retracement or it may take out the low slightly, resulting in a double-bottom. A swing must eventually form.
A simple way to roughly determine trend is to attempt to draw a line from three tops going upwards (uptrend) or a line from three bottoms going downwards (downtrend). It is not possible to correctly draw a downtrend line on the BTC chart, but it is possible to correctly draw an uptrend – indicating that the overall trend is downwards. The only mitigating factor is the impending stock market crash.

Time Symmetry Analysis of Bitcoin

Time is the movement from the past through the present into the future. It is a measurement in quantified intervals. In many ways, our perception of it is a human construct. It is more powerful than price as time may be utilized for a trade regardless of the market inflection point’s price. Were it possible to perfectly understand time, price would be totally irrelevant due to the predictive certainty time affords. Time structure is easier to learn than price, but much more difficult to apply with any accuracy. It is the hardest aspect of trading to learn, but also the most rewarding.
Humans do not have the ability to recognize every time window, however the ability to define market inflection points in terms of time is the single most powerful trading edge. Regardless, price should not be abandoned for time alone. Time structure analysis It is inherently flawed, as such the markets have a fail-safe, which is Price Structure. Even though Time is much more powerful, Price Structure should never be completely ignored. Time is the qualifier for Price and vice versa. Time can fail by tricking traders into counter-trend trading.
Time is a predestined trade quantifier, a filter to slow trades down, as it allows a trader to specifically focus on specific time windows and rest at others. It allows for quantitative measurements to reach deterministic values and is the primary qualifier for trends. Time structure should be utilized before price structure, and it is the primary trade criterion which requires support from price. We can see price structure on a chart, as areas of mathematical support or resistance, but we cannot see time structure.
Time may be used to tell us an exact point in the future where the market will inflect, after Price Theory has been fulfilled. In the present, price objectives based on price theory added to possible future times for market inflection points give us the exact time of market inflection points and price.
Time Structure is repetitions of time or inherent cycles of time, occurring in a methodical way to provide time windows which may be utilized for inflection points. They are not easily recognized and not easily defined by a price chart as measuring and observing time is very exact. Time structure is not a science, yet it does require precise measurements. Nothing is certain or definite. The critical question must be if a particular approach to time structure is currently lucrative or not.
We will measure it in intervals of 180 bars. Our goal is to determine time windows, when the market will react and when we should pay the most attention. By using time repetitions, the fact that market inflection points occurred at some point in the past and should, therefore, reoccur at some point in the future, we should obtain confidence as to when SPY will reach a market inflection point. Time repetitions are essentially the market’s memory. However, simply measuring the time between two points then trying to extrapolate into the future does not work. Measuring time is not the same as defining time repetitions. We will evaluate past sessions for market inflection points, whether discretes, qualified swings, or intra-range. Then records the times that the market has made highs or lows in a comparable time period to the future one seeks to trade in.
What follows is a time Histogram – A grouping of times which appear close together, then segregated based on that closeness. Time is aligned into combined histogram of repetitions and cycles, however cycles are irrelevant on a daily basis. If trading on an hourly basis, do not use hours.
  • Yearly Lows (last seven years): 1/1/13, 4/10/14, 1/15/15, 1/17/16, 1/1/17, 12/15/18, 2/6/19
  • Monthly Mode: 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 4, 12
  • Daily Mode: 1, 1, 6, 10, 15, 15, 17
  • Monthly Lows (for the last year): 3/12/20 (10:00pm), 2/28/20 (7:09am), 1/2/20 (8:09pm), 12/18/19 (8:00am), 11/25/19 (1:00am), 10/24/19 (2:59am), 9/30/19 (2:59am), 8/29,19 (4:00am), 7/17/19 (7:59am), 6/4/19 (5:59pm), 5/1/19 (12:00am), 4/1/19 (12:00am)
  • Daily Lows Mode for those Months: 1, 1, 2, 4, 12, 17, 18, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30
  • Hourly Lows Mode for those Months (Military time): 0100, 0200, 0200, 0400, 0700, 0700, 0800, 1200, 1200, 1700, 2000, 2200
  • Minute Lows Mode for those Months: 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 09, 09, 59, 59, 59, 59
  • Day of the Week Lows (last twenty-six weeks):
Weighted Times are repetitions which appears multiple times within the same list, observed and accentuated once divided into relevant sections of the histogram. They are important in the presently defined trading time period and are similar to a mathematical mode with respect to a series. Phased times are essentially periodical patterns in histograms, though they do not guarantee inflection points
Evaluating the yearly lows, we see that BTC tends to have its lows primarily at the beginning of every year, with a possibility of it being at the end of the year. Following the same methodology, we get the middle of the month as the likeliest day. However, evaluating the monthly lows for the past year, the beginning and end of the month are more likely for lows.
Therefore, we have two primary dates from our histogram.
1/1/21, 1/15/21, and 1/29/21
2:00am, 8:00am, 12:00pm, or 10:00pm
In fact, the high for this year was February the 14th, only thirty days off from our histogram calculations.
The 8.6-Year Armstrong-Princeton Global Economic Confidence model states that 2.15 year intervals occur between corrections, relevant highs and lows. 2.15 years from the all-time peak discrete is February 9, 2020 – a reasonably accurate depiction of the low for this year (which was on 3/12/20). (Taking only the Armstrong model into account, the next high should be Saturday, April 23, 2022). Therefore, the Armstrong model indicates that we have actually bottomed out for the year!
Bear markets cannot exist in perpetuity whereas bull markets can. Bear markets will eventually have price objectives of zero, whereas bull markets can increase to infinity. It can occur for individual market instruments, but not markets as a whole. Since bull markets are defined by low volatility, they also last longer. Once a bull market is indicated, the trader can remain in a long position until a new high is reached, then switch to shorts. The average bear market is eighteen months long, giving us a date of August 19th, 2021 for the end of this bear market – roughly speaking. They cannot be shorter than fifteen months for a central-bank controlled market, which does not apply to Bitcoin. (Otherwise, it would continue until Sunday, September 12, 2021.) However, we should expect Bitcoin to experience its’ exponential growth after the stock market re-enters a bull market.
Terry Laundy’s T-Theory implemented by measuring the time of an indicator from peak to trough, then using that to define a future time window. It is similar to an head-and-shoulders pattern in that it is the process of forming the right side from a synthetic technical indicator. If the indicator is making continued lows, then time is recalculated for defining the right side of the T. The date of the market inflection point may be a price or indicator inflection date, so it is not always exactly useful. It is better to make us aware of possible market inflection points, clustered with other data. It gives us an RSI low of May, 9th 2020.
The Bradley Cycle is coupled with volatility allows start dates for campaigns or put options as insurance in portfolios for stocks. However, it is also useful for predicting market moves instead of terminal dates for discretes. Using dates which correspond to discretes, we can see how those dates correspond with changes in VIX.
Therefore, our timeline looks like:
  • 2/14/20 – yearly high ($10372 USD)
  • 3/12/20 – yearly low thus far ($3858 USD)
  • 5/9/20 – T-Theory true yearly low (BTC between 4863 and 3569)
  • 5/26/20 – hashrate difficulty halvening
  • 11/14/20 – stock market low
  • 1/15/21 – yearly low for BTC, around $8528
  • 8/19/21 – end of stock bear market
  • 11/26/21 – eighteen months from halvening, average peak from halvenings (BTC begins rising from $3000 area to above $23,312)
  • 4/23/22 – all-time high

EURUSD Short - 4.5%
Great to see such an amazing forex community here!

Here is my EURUSD short from yesterday with my analysis - 4.5% RR

Confluences for the trade:
  • Previous day was a strong bearish candle (harami candle) at a break and retest area. This also created a lower high and a new daily structure resistance.
  • 4h has shown price slowing down at this area and created a lower high and a head and shoulders pattern
  • 1h gave a pullback and then sellers coming back in for an entry.

Cryptocurrency price analysis: waiting for a new rise

Cryptocurrency price analysis: waiting for a new rise

https://preview.redd.it/2bx1unugrpv31.png?width=900&format=png&auto=webp&s=7d5d842ae15e44eb592010bbf6c985cd519e0433
Leading RoboForex analyst Dmitry Gurkovsky tells about further possible scenarios of bitcoin price movement and several popular altcoins.
Buyers managed to show a good rebound up. At the moment, assets such as bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash look very interesting in the context of continued growth. Moreover, if the BCH/USD chart shows the formation of a reversal pattern inverted "Head and shoulders" in favor of growth, then BTC is still preparing to leave the channel and continue a confident upward movement.
Unfortunately, Ethereum, Litecoin and EOS assets are still under pressure. There are several signals from the daily charts in favor of a downward movement. However, if the bulls manage to break through the nearest resistance levels, then these assets will be ready to move to a phase of sustainable growth.
In General, the cryptocurrency market looks ready for the beginning of a new wave of growth. The bulls can only hold the current levels and rise a little higher to deprive the bears of all chances to continue the downward correction.

Bitcoin

Quotes showed an aggressive rebound from the support level. However, the price tested resistance in the form of a downtrend near the $9800 area. For a full extension of the lifting by the buyer it is important to "push out" rates are even higher.
A good signal in favor of the likely continuation of growth is the breakdown of the downward trend line on the RSI indicator. In most cases, there is a return to the broken line, after which we should expect continued growth. As the main trading idea, you can take a slight correction to the level of $7700, after which you can talk about a rebound and an upward movement.
The cancellation of this option would be the drop in prices of digital asset below $6875, which indicates a breakout of the lower border of the channel and continue falling.
Daily BTC/USD chart from TradingView
On the 4-hour chart, cryptocurrency quotes were able to leave the limits of the short-term downward channel. This signal is the first sign of a potential reversal of the current downward correction. However, confirmation of the completion of the fall will be a strong growth with a consolidation above the level of $10,995, which will indicate an exit beyond the downward channel. In this case, the target of the movement will be the $12,405 area.
The RSI indicator values again pushed off from the resistance level, so we should expect a decrease and a test of the broken channel border. After this movement, we can talk about the beginning of growth to the target at $10,995.

Four-hour BTC/USD chart from TradingView

Ethereum

Ethereum buyers also managed to keep quotes in the support area, which is located at $147. At the moment, the price has once again returned to the area between the moving averages, which may provoke an attempt to further decline.
In favor of this option is a rebound from the downward resistance line on the RSI indicator. As the main idea, we should expect a rebound from the lower border of the ascending channel and a continuation of the fall to the first target at $147. Its breakdown will open the way for the movement of quotations to the level of $100. The cancellation of the negative option will be the breakdown of the Moving averages and the consolidation of ETH/USB above the level of $239. In this case, we can talk about the continuation of the rise to the goal at $280.
Daily EUUSD chart from TradingView
On the 4-hour chart, the quotes are clamped within the descending channel. The RSI indicator values again test the resistance line, so we should expect a rebound and a fall in the quotes of the digital asset to the level of $150. In favor of this option, the upper limit of the descending channel will also be tested. The cancellation of the proposed forecast will be the breakdown of the resistance level and consolidation above $202, which will indicate the exit of quotations beyond the ascending channel. In this case, the goal of the rise will be the level of $239.
Four-hour EUUSD chart from TradingView

Litecoin

On the daily chart, the RSI indicator values test the resistance line. It is premature to talk about a reversal — as we can see, the pressure from the sellers remains. Moving averages also indicate a bearish trend. There are risks to see a rebound from the resistance level and another attempt to fall to the level of $41.
The cancellation of the negative option for the bulls will be a strong growth with a breakdown of the level of $79, which will indicate the return of quotes inside the ascending channel and the continuation of the rise to the first target at $107.
Daily LTC/USD chart from TradingView
At smaller time intervals Litecoin tests the upper boundary of the descending channel. As you can see, prices are repelled from the level of $64. The RSI indicator values here also tested the resistance line. As the main option, we should expect a fall to the level of $41. The cancellation of such a scenario will be the breakdown of the upper border of the descending channel. In this case, the growth target should be considered the $79 area.
TradingView's four-hour LTC/USD chart

EOS

EOS buyers are trying to turn the tide in favor of growth. However, here on the daily chart, the RSI indicator values test the resistance line. Previously, we have already seen a rebound from it, so while the values are lower, we should expect a fall in quotations.
The immediate target of the decline may be the area at the level of $2, the breakdown of which will indicate a movement to the level of $1.45. The cancellation of the option with a decrease will be a strong rise in the value of EOS and the consolidation of the asset price above the level of $4.29, which will also provoke a breakdown of the resistance line by the values of the RSI indicator. In this case, the growth target may be the $5.35 area.
Daily EUUSD chart from TradingView
At small time intervals, the quotes pushed off from the upper border of the descending channel. If the bears manage to increase the pressure, the $2.06 and $1.45 levels may be the target of the fall. In favor of this option, the resistance line test on the RSI indicator also speaks.
Confirmation of the fall will be the consolidation of EOS quotes under the level of $2.97. The cancellation of this scenario will be the breakdown of the upper border of the descending channel. In this case, the growth target will be $4.29 and $5.35.
Four-hour EUUSD chart from TradingView

Bitcoin Cash

On the daily chart, buyers managed to break through the downtrend line. The value of the RSI indicator has also strengthened above the resistance line. All these signals point to a potential continuation of growth towards the first target at $355. The breakdown of this area will give impetus to the movement to the level of $457.
However, we should not exclude the development of a minor correction with the test of a broken trend line on the RSI indicator. The target of the correction may be the $245 area. The cancellation of the option with growth will be the fall and breakdown of the local minimum with the consolidation of quotations under the level of $200. In this case, we should expect a decline in the price to the level of $165.45.
Daily BCH/USD chart from TradingView
On the 4-hour chart, the quotes also fixed above the short-term descending channel. It is not necessary to exclude attempts of formation of the inverted model "Head and shoulders". As you can see, the price is enough to fall to the level of $245 to complete the formation of the right" shoulder " of the model, after which we should expect the beginning of a strong growth.
A good signal for the continuation of the rise will be the consolidation of the price above the level of $335.2. Cancellation option growth will drop and the breakdown of support level with closing prices below the level of $199, which is expected to continue falling.

r/Stocks Technicals Tuesday - Dec 25, 2018

Feel free to talk about technical analysis here (not argue against it), but before you ask any question make sure you see the following information:
Technical analysis (TA) uses historical price movements, real time data, indicators based on math and/or statistics, and charts; all of which help measure the trajectory of a security. TA can also be used to interpret the actions of other market participants and predict their actions:
Measure: Is the security's price trending, has it dipped or is it a falling knife? Interpret: Does the current price mean investors think it's undervalued or overvalued; when did they buy/sell more and why? Predict: If price reaches a certain point, will there be a rally or get rejected?
The main benefit to TA is that everything shows up in the price (commonly known as priced in): All news, investor sentiment, and changes to fundamentals are reflected in a security's price.
TA is best used for short term trading, but can also be used for long term.

Do candlestick patterns work on low time frames? (some of my observations)

Hi!
So, I am learning forex trading, it took me about half a year to find the way I want to trade and I finally discovered the huge potential of forex scalping. I'm trying to learn by using lots of stuff and see if they work or not. I spend most of my time on 1 minute chart and I noticed that price is vulnerable to:
- support and resistance lines (captain obvious here)
- chart patterns like double/triple top/low, head and shoulders etc.
- trend line breaks
- EMA 50
The last one was highly suprising for me because I'm price actions enthusiast and I try to avoid indicators. Price is very vunerable to EMA 50 even on low time frames.
But there is still a big problem when price is approaching to support/resistance zone and I need some additional confirmations to open a trade, so I'm looking for long wick candles, engulfing candles, a lot of rejections and even if I can clearly see them, there is a lot of situations when price moves in a completely unexpected direction. Sometimes I feel like candlestick patterns don't work on 1 minute chart and price is doing some "random" moves.
I look at previous hours/days quite often and when I see that there was a big move, I look at previous candles, even on higher time frames and I think "shit, there is no chance I could predict that".

Do you have similiar experiences?

How Head & Shoulders Pattern Work in Forex Trading?

How Head & Shoulders Pattern Work in Forex Trading?
https://preview.redd.it/nu5xmktn38m21.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e1e9bff480448b8fde579062c5a0159eeb61e0e2

In forex trading, Many Forex traders have made ginormous profits using chart analysis. It is designed to identify the highest probable outcome when the prices follow a certain pattern. Chart analysis has a higher chance of returning you with profits. And every analysis has a theory of the trading trend which makes it quite reliable. Head and shoulders pattern is one of the basic chart analysis methods which has a set of rules to identify the pattern and make profits.
Left Shoulder: When the prices rise to a certain peak and then fall, the peak is known as the left shoulder.
Head: When the prices rise again to an even higher position than the left shoulder and then it falls, the peak is identified as the head.
Right Shoulder: When the stooped price from the head rises to form a peak lower than the head but almost equaling the left shoulder, the right shoulder is formed.
Neck Line: After spotting the left shoulder, head and right shoulder on the chart, the lowest value from the left shoulder is connected to the lowest value at the start of the right shoulder. This simple line is called the neckline. It is crucial to identify the neckline before the trade can be established.
https://preview.redd.it/ht25zvjr38m21.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b00306e1b79a538c55e05b4cbb3918236de8a1ca
How to Trade the Head & Shoulders Pattern? When the right shoulder hits the neckline is the right time to enter the trade. It is a must for traders to wait for the pattern to get completed as it can go either way even a minute before the completion of the pattern. It suggests that after the prices reach the neckline at the end of the right shoulder, the breakdown occurs. The breakdown is the sudden surge in the rise or fall of the prices.
How head & shoulders work? When the head sees a fall, the traders would have started to sell their positions as it is the highest peak at that time. This leads to less aggressive buying in the market. The traders who entered the right shoulder would have started to sell as the price approaches the neckline. This would further decrease the interest in buying leading to a sudden fall in the prices. Reaching the neckline is when the losing traders experience the pain of heavy losses.
When to get out of the trade? You should get out of the trade when the prices reach a certain position which can be identified by the difference between the highest and lowest of the values in the pattern subtracted from the neckline. It is at this position you can earn a substantial profit with low risk.
Inverted Head & Shoulder: It is also a good position to trade when the head & shoulders pattern is inverted. The left shoulder is formed by the dipping prices and the head is formed after a dip greater than that of the left shoulder. The right shoulder is formed by another ‘V’ in the chart which is less than the head but almost equaling the left shoulder. Here, you add the difference between the highest and lowest value of the pattern to the neckline to determine your closing price.
One last thing to remember: It must have occurred to you that if charts give you the highest probable outcome, why not everyone is using it? And what if everyone follows the chart analysis? Identifying the right scenario where the prices follow the pattern can prove to be challenging and the pattern you identify cannot always be identified by all the traders. What appears to be a pattern for you might not be for the next trader. And there are always those who go by the instinct. So, it is highly unlikely for anyone to experience such scenarios. Trading has its own risks. Using chart analysis doesn’t promise profits every time. It simply gives you the highest probable outcome for the analyzed data. Some traders believe chart analysis to be a lie, while that may be true to some extent as it is impossible to predict the absolute price movements. Sometimes, the market acts differently from the analyzed data. It is your obligation to identify the right trade.

Deciphering the Diamond Chart Pattern

Deciphering the Diamond Chart Pattern
Diamond Chart Pattern
The diamond chart pattern is one of the reliable chart patterns mostly used by the day traders to identify the potential uptrend reversals. The bearish diamond’s occurrences are far more prevalent than their bullish counterparts. The diamond pattern has enabled a large number of traders to make quick profits.
Forex trading markets, because of their high liquidity, gives way to more diamond formations than any trading counterpart.
Cutting the Diamond Bear An offset head & shoulders formation is chosen for the trend lines to be sketched. The left shoulder and the head are connected through a straight line. The head is then connected to the peak of the right shoulder. This forms the upper boundary of the diamond. The price must not break the boundary for it to remain in the pattern.
For the lower part, the left shoulder is again connected to the trough formed after the head which is then connected to the right shoulder.
Identification: Diamond vs Head & Shoulders It is not hard to get confused with the pattern of head & shoulders and diamond as they mirror each other. The offset nature of the head & shoulders pattern can be identified by the head located closer to the left shoulder and the tail slightly closer to the right. And the neckline will always struggle to be a straight line.
Entry The right time to take the trade is by the completion of the pattern. The breakdown is most likely to happen right after the formation of the diamond, so shorting at the end of the right shoulder could prove to be beneficial.
Exit The safest exit is marked from the right shoulder with the difference in value between the highest Peak and the deepest crevice within the pattern. The diamond pattern’s breakdown has more profit potential than just the difference between the peak and trough, but, more than that is a risk.
Stop-Loss Stop loss is a counter-measure to limit your losses in case of the failure of your analyzed pattern. It is most advised to place the stop loss at the last peak formed before the completion of the diamond.
Bullish Diamond Pattern Bullish diamond chart pattern, also known as the diamond bottom is also an existing pattern which is straight opposite to what we have seen, except for the profit potential. It is used to identify the downtrend reversal, but their formation is scarce when compared to the bearish diamond tops.
For the Bullish diamond pattern, the entry is the same as that of the diamond top, but the exit by the uptrend and the stop loss is placed at the last trough formed inside the pattern.
Before trying the learned chart analysis pattern in real time, use the historic trading charts to check if you can identify the right pattern. Novice traders, because of their overwhelming enthusiasm, often put their knowledge to work before testing it out and incur heavy losses. Learning diamond pattern makes no difference if you don’t practice and hone your skills.
