The problem with TA is that you can always come up with some reason (or excuse) why price continues or reverses at whatever price. Things always make sense in hindsight. Oh, wow, I should have bought because the stochastics crossed over, we bounced off support, support broke, adx was rising, volume was breaking out, bollinger bands were containing price, price was riding the BB's, the gap was filled, no we're having a runaway gap, look a big divergence, oh wait, multiple divergences, must be a big buy now, blah blah blah. I think I've heard it all. The problem is that there is so much TA BS out there that there is always some excuse why price did what it did. However, the problem is trying to take advantage of the situation where certain patterns provide an edge. However, every edge seems to have a short shelf life as the market is always changing as it cycles between trend and range. Could someone please enlighten me into what works.
