Page 4 of 5 How to Trade Support and Resistances

How to Trade Support and Resistances

Now that you know the basics, it’s time to apply these basic but extremely useful technical tools in your trading. Because here at BabyPips.com we want to make things easy to understand, we have divided how to trade support and resistance levels into two simple ideas: the Bounce and the Break.

The Bounce

How to trade support and resistance using the Bounce

As the name suggests, one method of trading support and resistance levels is right after the bounce.

Many retail forex traders make the error of setting their orders directly on support and resistance levels and then just waiting to for their trade to materialize. Sure, this may work at times but this kind of trading method assumes that a support or resistance level will hold without price actually getting there yet.

You might be thinking, “Why don’t I just set an entry order right on the line? That way, I am assured the best possible price.”

When playing the bounce, we want to tilt the odds in our favor and find some sort of confirmation that the support or resistance will hold.

Instead of simply buying or selling right off the bat, wait for it to bounce first before entering. By doing this, you avoid those moments where price moves fast and break through support and resistance levels. From experience, catching a falling knife when trading forex can get really bloody…

The Break

In a perfect world, support and resistance levels would hold forever, McDonald’s would be healthy, and we’d all have jetpacks. In a perfect forex trading world, we could just jump in and out whenever price hits those major support and resistance levels and earn loads of money. The fact of the matter is that these levels break… often.

So, it’s not enough to just play bounces. You should also know what to do whenever support and resistance levels give way!

There are two ways to play breaks in forex trading: the aggressive way or the conservative way.

The Aggressive Way

The simplest way to play breakouts is to buy or sell whenever price passes convincingly through a support or resistance zone. The key word here is convincingly because we only want to enter when price passes through a significant support or resistance level with ease.

We want the support or resistance area to act as if it just received a Chuck Norris karate chop: We want it to wilt over in pain as price breaks right through it.

The Conservative Way

Imagine this hypothetical situation: you decided to go long EUR/USD hoping it would rise after bouncing from a support level. Soon after, support breaks and you are now holding on to a losing position, with your account balance slowly falling.

Do you…

A. Accept defeat, get the heck out, and liquidate your position?

or

B. Hold on to your trade and hope price rises up again?

If your choice is the second one, then you will easily understand this type of forex trading method. Remember, whenever you close out a position, you take the opposite side of the trade. Closing your EUR/USD long trade at or near breakeven means you will have to short the EUR/USD by the same amount.

Now, if enough selling and liquidation of losing positions happens at the broken support level, price will reverse and start falling again. This phenomenon is the main reason why broken support levels become resistance whenever they break.

As you would’ve guessed, taking advantage of this phenomenon is all about being patient. Instead of entering right on the break, you wait for price to make a “pullback” to the broken support or resistance level and enter after the price bounces.

 

The conservative way of trading breaks of support and resistance: Wait for the pullback
A few words of caution… IN FOREX, THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN ALL THE TIME. “RETESTS” OF BROKEN SUPPORT AND RESISTANCE LEVELS DO NOT HAPPEN ALL THE TIME. THERE WILL BE TIMES THAT PRICE WILL JUST MOVE IN ONE DIRECTION AND LEAVE YOU BEHIND. BECAUSE OF THIS, ALWAYS USE STOP LOSS ORDERS AND NEVER EVER HOLD ON TO A TRADE JUST BECAUSE OF HOPE.

 

Whoops, sorry about that folks, the caps lock key got stuck.

如何使用阻力和支撑来交易



       既然你了解了基础知识,也是时候在交易中运用这些基本但非常有用的技术工具了。因为在
Babypips这里,我们希望一切的知识都很容易理解,所以我们把交易支撑和阻力位分成两个简单的策略:反弹和突破。

反弹策略 
           顾名思义,使用支撑和阻力位的一种方法就是在反弹之后。

      许多散户交易者错误地将订单直接挂在支持和阻力位上,然后就一直等着他们的订单兑现。当然,这种方法有时可能很有效,但是这种交易的方法是假定在,价格到达
支撑位和阻力位那里的情况下,价格就会反弹。

      你可能会想:“我当然把
订单直接挂在支持和阻力位上啦?这样一来,我可以赚得最大的利润。”
      当我们在操作反弹交易的时候,我们需要辨识出对我们有利的胜算,并且找出有把握的支撑和阻力位。然后在它
第一次反弹时才简单直接的下单,这样做的话,可避免大波动时,价格迅速突破支撑与阻力位。经验告诉我们,想接住一把快速飞来的刀子容易发生流血的事件。。。

  

突破策略 

      在理想的世界里,支撑和阻力位会永远不变,多吃麦当劳会有益于身体健康,每个人都会支竹蜻蜓。在理想的交易世界里,我们只要在价格到达主要的支撑位和阻力位时,轻松的买进卖出就可以赚很多钱很多的钱。但现实是这些支撑和阻力位都被突破。。。而且还经常被突破。

      所以,仅仅学会反弹策略是不足够的。,你也应该知道
当支撑和阻力位被突破后要做什么!突破后的交易方式有两种:激进方式和保守方式。


激进方式

      突破后最简单的交易策略就是当价格强劲有力的突破支撑和阻力位的时候进行下单。这里的关键字眼是“强劲有力的”,因为我们只需要在价格通过一个重要的支撑和阻力位的时候就轻松的下单。

       我们希望见到支撑或阻力区域,就像挨到李小龙《猛龙过江》电影中的空手道高手Chuck Norris的劈掌效果一样:我们想要看支撑或阻力位随着价格的突破,而在痛苦中衰弱。

 

保守方式

      设想一下这个假设性的情境: 你决定做多 欧元/美元,原本希望它从支撑位反弹后继续上涨。但突然间支撑位被突破,而且你账户的余额正逐步减少的时候

       你会。。。


          1. 接受失败,立刻平仓?


          2. 坚持持单并且希望价格上涨?


       如果你选择第二种,那么你会很容易地明白这种交易方法。记住,当你在平仓的时候,你就是在做反向的交易。要平掉你的欧元/美元的多头交易,就意味着你必须以同样的数目的头寸做空欧元/美元。现在,如果有足够的空单和止损单,在价格突破支撑位的附近时,价格将会回撤,然后才继续下跌。这一现象也是为什么,突破后的支撑位会转为阻力位,的主要原因。

       正如您所猜到的一样,利用这种现象的都是有耐心的人。和激进下单的方式相反,这种方式要等待“回调”的价格,达到突破的支撑或阻力位附近,并且在价格反弹时进入。


       几句忠告:这种事情不会时常发生。突破支撑和阻力位的“重复测试”不会总是发生。有时候, 价格只往一个方向移动,并且把你抛之脑后。因为这样,所以总是采用止损交易而且永远不要只是因为希望而不止损。


        哎呦,"红色键" 卡住了,我们对此深感抱歉。
