If 90% of traders fail, and if most use Technical analysis, doesn't that mean we should fade common technical patterns? The moment I see a rising trend, doesn't that mean the edge is over? Something to this effect, "If it's obvious, it's obviously wrong" Fade H&S patterns. Fade moving averages Fade breakouts Fade Breakdowns Fade Fibonacci Fade Pivots When I say "Fade" I mean use them to see what a retail trader would normally do, then do the opposite. The anti-self-fulfilling trade. So, if you see some massive H&S pattern, guess what, the rest of the community does also and it's time to fade. food for thought.
