I've noticed that the NQs have been making a trading range lately before breaking out/down but before doing so, usually gives a false break then consolidates some more before the legit break. some examples are 2/11 (after 10am), 2/12 (11am) and 2/18 (between 9:45-10:30). i usually trade pullbacks and am trying to figure out how these breakouts are traded. are there indicators or patterns that help make a distinction between those that are false and/or the move that's follows through. btw, sorry i had to make a few posts i cant seem to attach more than 1 file for each post. Another pattern I've noticed is one which plays like it is reversing the trend, then passes the 20ema to a point then forms a base but fails and continues downwards (2/19 9:50am & 10:50am in red circles). how does one figure out the difference between the continuation of this pattern against one which actually falls first but is an actual reversal, like in 2/18 after 3pm. Thanks.
