Review of last week
Last week began with a low-volatility due to the bank holiday in the UK and Memorial Day in the US. On the first day of trading we had data on inflation in Germany, which were in line with forecast and were 0.3%. The same day, but in later times, Japan has demonstrated its unemployment data which were steady at 3.2 which is not much change market.
The first excitement came after the article in Bloomberg that Abe prime minister has made a decision on the delay tax rise, to hit the yen and the yen reached a bottom after that during the last few weeks under all currency pairs. However turnover occurred after confirming the news when became the official, Japanese yen did not fall on the first notice that after a few hours strongly strengthened against the dollar from the 110.70 to 109.
On Tuesday we had confirmation that inflation in the Eurozone was at the expected level in the amount of 0.8%, which is just above last month for 0.1%. GDP in Canada was weaker than expected and the news affected the fall of Canadian dollar despite rising oil prices, which in the last week trading for the first time this year was above $ 50 per barrel. Ends week brought the excitement…

Nous poursuivons notre article consacré aux canaux de tendance dont la première partie peut être consultée ici :
https://www.dukascopy.com/fxcomm/fx-article-contest/?Les-Canaux-De-Tendance-Partie&action=read&id=3128#read-article

4. Canaux parallèles
.
4.1. Définition.
Une paire de devises ne peut évoluer indéfiniment dans un canal de tendance, le franchissement d'une des bornes devrait voir les prix se retourner ou poursuivre la tendance avec plus de force. Mais il existe une troisième possibilité où les prix évoluent avec exactement le même momentum, après le franchissement d'une borne, dans un canal parallèle au précédent. Cette configuration graphique particulière fait suite à un fort mouvement des prix qui déborde une des bornes du canal pour, dans un second temps, recouvrer la tendance précédente; en voici une illustration avec l'EUR/SEK en données journalières:
4.2. Construction.
Il n'existe malheureusement pas de règles en la matière, seule compte l'acuité visio-spatiale du trader. Il est rare qu'un ensemble de canaux de tendance apparaisse à l'observateur du premier coup d’œil, telle une évidence, cela nécessite du temps et de l'attention. L'approche se fait par phases d'h…

Bien joué  avec les divergences ( ce que j'adore trader), après tu peux aller plus  là  avec les points touchés et  les pts de  sorties  qui  sont  le plus  souvent à partir du 6ème. Si tu  veux étudier  toutes les  figures chartistes, tu as  encore du boulot.

bodyart23 avatar

En regardant ton 1er graphe 6.3  qui  est sur  LT ( environ 1 an), on peut le  détailler  encore  sur  des  MT  voir  CT,  toutes les cassures    se voit  avec  d'autres résistances.  Par  exemple ,  le 3ème pic  était  facilement prévisible  puisqu'il était dans la continuité  d'une  résistance  des 2 premiers pics ( sans la mèche du 1er).  Bien sur, après  toutes résistances est fait pour être cassée et c'est là qu'il faut poser les bons  stop loss.

1. Introduction.
La préoccupation première de tout trader, qui pour certains confine à l'obsession, est d'arriver à mettre de l'ordre dans le désordre apparent d'un graphique, à encadrer en quelque sorte la marche des prix dans le but d'anticiper son évolution future.
Pour ce faire, nous disposons par bonheur d'une multitude d'outils dont font parties les figures chartistes: ensemble de droites qui viennent se greffer au graphique des prix.
Cet article sera consacré à l'étude d'une figure graphique en particulier : les canaux de tendance. L'exposé se limitera au canaux constitués de droites parallèles. Nous verrons dans un premier temps les principes de base nécessaires à la compréhension et la construction de tels canaux et terminerons, dans une seconde partie, par quelques applications sur le marché des devises.

2. Définitions.

Un canal de tendance est constitué de deux droites parallèles où les prix évoluent de part et d'autres des droites. Ces droites vont ainsi encadrer les prix, ce sont les bornes du canal. Un canal de tendance est caractérisé par quatre grandeurs : l'inclinaison, la hauteur ou amplitude, la ligne de résonance et les points de contact.
a) L'inclinaison.
L'in…

This strategy is very easy to use. Everyone can use and learn this strategy. Very powerful and works for me great. I create that strategy with my father help.                                                  Pair This strategy the best result is on EUR/USD pair.U can use and other pairs, but better use  EUR/USD pair.                                                                                                Indicators(Zigzag+) with default settings.                                                 ObjectsYou have to use equidistant channel tool.                                                                                               Buy You have to buy when the green candle crosses a equidistant channel second line and the candle closed above equidistant channel second line. And very important that equidistant channel turn down.                                                Sell You have to sell when the red candle crosses a equidistant channel first line and the candle closed below equidistant channel first line. And very important that equidistant channel turn up.                                                  Strategy 1. Use 15 min timeframe. 2. you have to look only a…

Hello Dukascopy Community!
It's time for another article,
this time about selling technique during downtrend (which entry point to use
and why and when to get out of position and why). I will also explain you why
buying dips in downtrend is not the best idea. At the end you will have another
practical example of CHART PRICE ACTION that is how to read price moves from
clean charts based only on support/resistance lines and tops/bottoms. Hope it
will make you improve your own strategies and maybe let you take a fresh look
on things.
USDCHF M30 TIME FRAME
On the chart below I put some
downtrend channel according to the rule I mentioned some time ago, that I
need 3 points to establish a potential trend channel.On the next chart you can see same channel
but with corrective waves marked in blue. They may remind you of flag price
patterns. What is important here is that to draw each one of them I used 4
points of reference marked as green ellipsis (Of course as usual 3 would be sufficient). The red ellipsis is the breakout
point. The short thin red line that you see inside second corrective formation is
to show you that last top in that formation was not breached. That said, market gave m…

Hello Friends...We have always read that "Trend is your Friend", all we need to do to rake in those Pips is to stay with the Trend...... But how do we know what is the direction of the present trend & if it is trending at all?Largely speaking there are two methods to know about the trend of markets,Moving AveragesTrend LinesMoving Averages        Moving Averages is one of the oldest and simplest form of Technical Analysis and are very good for Trend Identification and often also act as floating support and Resistance. The best example of this is the 200 Day Simple Moving Average, which in a broader sense can also be termed as the holy grail for trend identification. In most of the cases this also acts as a very good Support & Resistance.          The 200-SMA acts fabulously in the lower time frames also, but as is tended to be in most of the strategies using Moving Averages, the lower the Time Frame the higher the Whip-Saws.Trend Lines           Trend-Lines are lines drawn on the price chart connecting various highs and lows of the prices to get an understanding of the direction of the price or trend.Above is the Daily Chart of EURUSD pair. The green line is the 200 Day Simple Movi…

This does not mean that they are not useful because there are still exist some channels or trends but the price goes through the straight lines with considerable deviations giving a lot of misleading the signal :)

krishere 20 Dec.

mielec that is why I have suggested to wait for the crossover in Stochastics in the OB or OS to filter out the noise....

And you can never always be right, thats the reason we have Stop-Losses in place.... :)
