Know the 3 Main Groups of Chart Patterns

That’s a whole lot of chart patterns we just taught you right there. We’re pretty tired so it’s time for us to take off and leave it to you from here…

Just playin’! We ain’t leaving you till you’re ready!

In this section, we’ll discuss a bit more how to use these chart patterns to your advantage.

It’s not enough to just know how the tools work, we’ve got to learn how to use them. And with all these new weapons in your arsenal, we’d better get those profits fired up!

Let’s summarize the chart patterns we just learned and categorize them according to the signals they give.

Reversal Chart Patterns

Reversal patterns are those chart formations that signal that the ongoing trend is about to change course.

If a reversal chart pattern forms during an uptrend, it hints that the trend will reverse and that the price will head down soon. Conversely, if a reversal chart pattern is seen during a downtrend, it suggests that the price will move up later on.

In this lesson, we covered six chart patterns that give reversal signals. Can you name all six of them?

  1. Double Top
  2. Double Bottom
  3. Head and Shoulders
  4. Inverse Head and Shoulders
  5. Rising Wedge
  6. Falling Wedge

If you got all six right, brownie points for you!

Forex Chart Pattern: Double TopForex Chart Pattern: Head and ShouldersForex Chart Pattern: Rising Wedge

Forex Chart Pattern: Double BottomForex Chart Pattern: Inverse Head and ShouldersForex Chart Pattern: Falling Wedge

To trade these chart patterns, simply place an order beyond the neckline and in the direction of the new trend. Then go for a target that’s almost the same as the height of the formation.

For instance, if you see a double bottom, place a long order at the top of the formation’s neckline and go for a target that’s just as high as the distance from the bottoms to the neckline.

In the interest of proper risk management, don’t forget to place your stops! A reasonable stop loss can be set around the middle of the chart formation.

For example, you can measure the distance of the double bottoms from the neckline, divide that by two, and use that as the size of your stop.

Continuation Chart Patterns

Continuation chart patterns are those chart formations that signal that the ongoing trend will resume.

Usually, these are also known as consolidation patterns because they show how buyers or sellers take a quick break before moving further in the same direction as the prior trend.

We’ve covered several continuation chart patterns, namely the wedges, rectangles, and pennants. Note that wedges can be considered either reversal or continuation patterns depending on the trend on which they form.

Forex Chart Pattern: Falling WedgeForex Chart Pattern: Bullish RectangleForex Chart Pattern: Bullish Pennant

Forex Chart Pattern: Rising WedgeForex Chart Pattern: Bearish RectangleForex Chart Pattern: Bearish Pennant

To trade these patterns, simply place an order above or below the formation (following the direction of the ongoing trend, of course). Then go for a target that’s at least the size of the chart pattern for wedges and rectangles.

For pennants, you can aim higher and target the height of the pennant’s mast.

For continuation patterns, stops are usually placed above or below the actual chart formation.

For example, when trading a bearish rectangle, place your stop a few pips above the top or resistance of the rectangle.

Bilateral Chart Patterns

Bilateral chart patterns are a bit more tricky because these signal that the price can move either way.

Huh, what kind of a signal is that?!

This is where triangle formations fall in. Remember when we discussed that the price could break either to the topside or downside with triangles?

Forex Chart Pattern: Ascending TriangleForex Chart Pattern: Descending TriangleForex Chart Pattern: Symmetrical Triangle

To play these chart patterns, you should consider both scenarios (upside or downside breakout) and place one order on top of the formation and another at the bottom of the formation.

If one order gets triggered, you can cancel the other one. Either way, you’d be part of the action.

Double the possibilities, double the fun!

The only problem is that you could catch a false break if you set your entry orders too close to the top or bottom of the formation.

So be careful and don’t forget to place your stops too!

如何使用这些形态来进行交易

       我们刚刚教了你一大堆的形态, 我们已经非常疲劳了,所以是时候离开一下,让你们自己练习一下了......

       只是做做练习!放心,直到你做好为止,我们是不会放弃你的!

       在这章节中,我们将谈论更多一些,怎样使用这些形态来增加你的优势。

       只是知道这些形态的作用是远远不够的,我们必须练习如何使用它们。 配合你兵器库里的这些新武器,我们可以让盈利激增上来!

       让我们总结下刚刚学习的这些图表形态,并根据它们提供的信号,来进行分类。

反转形态

       反转形态是一些暗示着,目前的趋势将要改变方向的图表形态。

       如果一个反转形态在上升趋势中形成,它暗示着该趋势即将发生逆转,价格很快会转向下跌。相反的,如果在一个反转形态在下降趋势中形成,它暗示着价格不久将会上升。

       在这一课中,我们介绍了六个代表反转信号的图表形态。你能说出是哪六个吗?

              1. 双顶         3. 头肩型            5. 上升楔形
              2. 双底         4. 反头肩型         6. 下降楔形

       如果你正确的说出了这六个,那么你将可以被加分!

      
   

       通过这些形态来进行交易,只需要在颈线之外或在新趋势的方向中,简单地设置订单。然后在距离形态差不多高度的位置,进行止盈就行了。

       举例来说,如果你看到一个双底形态,你只需要在颈线位置的上面,设置一个多单,然后在距离大约是从底部到颈线高度的地方,设置止盈目标。

       根据风险管理的策略,别忘了止损单! 一个合理的止损单可设置在大约是形态高度的中间位置。

       例如,您可以测量从双底到颈线的距离,再除以二,并以此作为你的停止价格。

持续形态

       持续形态是一些标志着,目前的趋势只是在整顿,趋势将会继续的图表形态。

       通常,它们也被称为整顿形态,因为它们显示出买方或卖方,在稍微休息后,将以更快的移动速度向之前趋势同样方向前进。

       我们已经介绍了几种持续的形态,分别是楔形,矩形和三角旗形。 请注意,楔形形态同时是反转和持续形态,必须根据它们形成时的趋势来进行辨别。

   
   

       使用这些形态来进行交易,只需在形态尾端的上方和下方,简单的设置订单。(当然,依照将要前进的趋势方向)。 其止盈的目标至少为楔形和矩形的大小。

       对于三角旗形,你的止盈目标可以瞄在,大约是三角旗旗杆高度的位置。

       对于持续形态,止损订单通常是放在形态真正形成后的上方或下方。

       例如,当使用熊市矩形的形态来进行交易时,你可以把止损单设置在矩形的顶部,阻力位上方距离几点的位置。

双边形态

       双边图表形态则有些棘手,因为它们暗示着,价格可以往任何方向移动。

       哈,它们究竟是哪一种的形态呢 ?!

       它们就是所有的三角形形态。还记得我们谈论过价格既可以在三角形的顶部突破也可以在底部突破吗?

   

       使用这些形态来交易,你应该考虑两个情况 (向上和向下突破),并同时在底部和顶部,都设置一个订单。

       如果一边的订单一旦被触发,你可以取消另一个。无论价格往哪边,你都是在趋势中的一份子。

       双重的可能性,双倍的乐趣!

       唯一的问题是,如果您设置的挂单过于接近顶部或底部,你会时常抓到一个假的突破。

       所以,要小心,同时不要忘记了设置你的止损单!
