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!

正常背离

       一个正常背离被当作趋势反转的可能讯号来使用。

       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。

       这情况多数发生在下跌趋势的尾端。当价格完全形成第二个底部之后,如果振荡指标依然没有形成新低点的话,价格很可能会上升,因为价格的波动和动量的幅度,行动通常相互一致。

       下面是一张描绘牛市背离的图片。

            

       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。

       这种类型的背离可以在上升的趋势中找到。当价格完全形成第二个高点之后,如果震荡指标却形成一个较低的高点,那么你可以期待价格反转和下跌。

       在下图中,我们看到价格在形成第二个高点之后就反转了。

           

       正如你在上图中看到的一样,在尝试寻找顶部和底部的时候,正常背离是最好的讯号。如果你在寻找一个价格将会终止和反转的位置。

       震荡指标的信号告诉我们,动量正在转变中,即使价格还在形成渐高的高点(或渐低的低点),但趋势持续下去的概率不大了。

       你都懂了吗?是不是相当简单?

       既然你已经掌握了正常背离,是时候进一步学习第二种类型的背离—隐藏背离。

       别担心,它不像哈利波特的密室那样超级隐蔽,也并不是很难识别。之所以称为“隐藏”,是因为它隐蔽在当前的趋势里面。
