Because trading is a game, and each movement of the market has three different stages... This is how I have always understood the trading cycle anyway. Stage 1 - Accumulation. After a rise in a uptrend the market is allowed to settle down for a while. Professionals and big players in the market start accumulating into the dip and place icebergs under the market also to defend their position and absorb selling preventing a technical breakdown. Stage 2 - The move starts to be bid up and once it gets under way it attracts buyers who notice the move up in price. Trend traders and chasers start to move in and the euphoria starts to build. Stage 3 - Professionals following strict rules lock in profits holding the market back as the last fools jump in... Then the last fools panic out as the cycle starts over with Stage 1. So, where do you want to get into the market? At a bottom, during the trend, or at the top? Think about it. Note: The bottom indicator I don't use anymore. It's just for visual purposes.
