Candles and candles only

  1. I like everything you said. The The former point of resisstance has also become support. The only thing I do not like is the double top on 6/6 and 6/17. You would think that the way the mkt was moving as a whole a new higher high would have been made.

  2. IGT close 101.53 high 101.56
    MDR close 6.24 high 6.25
    RHI close 18.58 high 18.64

    As expected not much going on in the world of hammers today. But with the Spoos trading back above that up-trendline that was broken with conviction on Friday we may have a trend day???

    I do not know anything...react, do not anticipate!

  4. Nice thread, Indahook!

    I started with candles and now use both candles and bars (candles don't matter much for scalping).

    But I love candlestick science and particularly hammers & hanging men... They're very effective reversal patterns.

    How's things man?

  5. Thing are OK, Killed it the last month just like everybody else....been hanging around flat for a week. How about yourself?

    Candles are a fantastic reversal patterns. As you can see that is the primary reason for this thread. Buying on dips provides a powerful risk/reward ratio with obvious downside.

    I believe this one may be one to watch for possible nice hammer to form soon. Going to add to my watchlist.

    Good trading to you!

    You are right about HOV. I am trying to incorporate hammers into my trading- I use supports as entries on bounces and hammers appear to give me another tool to work with. Will need to observe more to understand all the set-ups.

    Look forward to learning more!
