  3. Spikes, like his name say, is when the market rise or down and pullback making the form of a spike.

    A runaway day, is when the market rises getting out of a trading range or whatever that have the price stopped, like a resistance. It should have high volume because there we have a lot of people trying to pull back the price.

    Key reversal is a day when the price goes up, make new high and next down closing lower than the previous bar. I will upload an hourly chart but in the daily chart it looks the same.

  4. that was incredible! quick question, do these mean they are trend reversals or minor reactions/continuation patterns? I'm assuming the key reversal is a major trend reversal? I'm reading technical analysis of stock trends and just couldn't decipher between the three. they seemed very similar. thank you for your post!

  6. Yes, well, I don't call it patterns but yes they are. Runaway broke the downtrend and the key reversal changed the up move.
