Gap, trend from the first bar bull

  • Tuesday, June 19, 2012
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday = weak bull channel. Gap but small bar and tails so trading range. Buyers below, sellers above
  • Bar 4 - Two bar revresal, close on high, ok buy or long for scalp and maybe swing
  • Bar 6 - 3 bars up. Traders buying closes, but small bars so less reliable. Might be spb bull trend day
  • Bar 8 - Bear reversal bar but trend from the first bar so buyers below and above
  • Bar 9 - Big bar so measuring gap or exhaustion gap. Exhaustion gap more likely
  • Bar 11 - Bear reversal bar, one bar final flag, but buyers below and trading range likely
  • Bar 12 - Another tail on top so probably microwedge and sellers above
  • Bar 13 - Spike up to 6 then 2 more pushes up 10 13. Should get pullback but better to buy or long pullback than to sell or short below since 1st pullback will probably be breakout test or bought. Bears are selling above bars, but not for beginners
  • Bar 14 - Breakout pullback buy or long but 2 bear bars so lower probability. Ok swing but probably not strong scalp
  • Bar 16 - Two bar revresal, double bottom 8, ok buy or long for scalp and swing since trend from the first bar bull trend = strong, and possible spb trend day (but low probability, since rare)
  • Bar 19 - Outside down bar but 2 bull bars and still bull trend day so sideways to down and small trading range likely. Better to buy or long pullbacks than to sell or short
