Regular Divergence

A regular divergence is used as a possible sign for a trend reversal.

If price is making lower lows (LL), but the oscillator is making higher lows (HL), this is considered to be regular bullish divergence.

This normally occurs at the end of a down trend. After establishing a second bottom, if the oscillator fails to make a new low, it is likely that the price will rise, as price and momentum are normally expected to move in line with each other.

Below is an image that portrays regular bullish divergence.

Regular Bullish Divergence

Now, if the price is making a higher high (HH), but the oscillator is lower high (LH), then you have regular bearish divergence.

This type of divergence can be found in an uptrend. After price makes that second high, if the oscillator makes a lower high, then you can probably expect price to reverse and drop.

In the image below, we see that price reverses after making the second top.

Regular Bearish Divergence

As you can see from the images above, the regular divergence is best used when trying to pick tops and bottoms. You are looking for an area where price will stop and reverse.

The oscillators signal to us that momentum is starting to shift and even though price has made a higher high (or lower low), chances are that it won’t be sustained.

Did you get all of that? Pretty simple eh?

Now that you’ve got a hold on regular divergence, it’s time to move and learn about the second type of divergence – hidden divergence.

Don’t worry, it’s not super concealed like the Chamber of Secrets and it’s not that tough to spot. The reason it’s called “hidden” is because it’s hiding inside the current trend.

We’ll explain more in the next section. Read on!



       如果价格正走出一个渐低的低点 (LL),但是震荡指标却走出一个渐高的低点(HL),那么这通常被认为是正常的牛市背离。




       现在,如果价格正形成一个渐高的高点 (HH),但是震荡指标却是渐低的高点 (LH),那么你就有了正常的熊市背离。
