The MACD is an oscillator that is used by traders to determine the turning points of the market. Basing on this fact the MACD oscillator can be used to determine the high ands and the lows of the market making it a reliable tool for timing entries and exits in the market. In this article I will focus on mainly how the MACD indicator can be combined with the trend line and be used for trading.
Drawing trend lines based on the MACD
To draw the trend lines one has to use the MACD oscillator set to default settings. The MACD oscillator can be added to the chart by selecting it from the inbuilt indicators on the Jforex platform.
Using the tops and bottoms formed on the MACD oscillator, one can accurately identify the highs and lows of the market thus eliminating any subjectivity. By joining these highs or the lows using the ray or trend line tool one can accurately determine the direction of the trend i.e. whether the trend is bullish or bearish.
In the chart below, one can draw a rising trend line by connecting two higher lows being formed. The higher lows must coincide with the higher lows being formed on the MACD oscillator.
In the next chart, we draw a falling trend line by con…

This is my first Article Post,I hope u all will like it.
To accomplish this, TD Lines require a trendline to connect “TD Points” (which are more commonly called “pivot” highs or lows, or “swing” highs or lows). A TD Point high is a high preceded and followed by an equal number of lower highs. A TD Point low is the opposite — a low surrounded by an equal number of higher lows. For example, a “Level One” TD Point low has one higher low before and after it; a Level Two TD Point low has two higher lows before it and two higher lows after it, and so on. TD Lines of different degrees of significance are constructed by connecting TD Point highs or lows of the same degree — i.e., connecting Level Two TD Point lows or connecting Level Three TD Point highs. For example, to plot a Level One TD Demand Line (Figure 1), which is used to identify support, start from the right side of the chart and connect the two most recent Level One TD Price Point lows. (Starting from the right side of the chart insures that the most recent price history is being used to identify the trend.) If the TD Demand Line is sloping upward, the current trend is up. A horizontal TD Demand Line reflects a sideways market…

Capter une nouvelle tendance qui se dessine est à priori un exercice périlleux en ce sens que la volatilité est la plus forte en ce moment particulier. Il reste en effet sur la valeur beaucoup de traders positionnés sur la tendance précédente, de nouveaux intervenants vont entrer à contre tendance activant ainsi le stop loss de ceux restés sur le trend précédent. La volatilité baissera au fur et à mesure qu'un plus grand nombre de traders entreront dans le sens de la nouvelle tendance.
Le point de retournement de tendance – zone similaire à une large bande de congestion - va générer des pertes importantes pour les deux parties, plus encore pour ceux positionnés sur la tendance précédente. La difficulté de l'exercice consiste alors à combiner risque et profit. D'un seul point de vue statistique, les chances de réussite augmentent et les profits potentiels diminuent pour toute entrée tardive et inversement dans le cas contraire. L'objet de cet article est de proposer au mieux de bons points d'entrée.
Par opposition au cours dit en « trading range », un cours en tendance se définit par des plus hauts et des plus bas de plus en plus hauts dans le cadre d'une tendance haussière, des p…

I find it useful to look at the big picture from time to time. In technical analysis terms, that usually means inspection of weekly and/or monthly charts. However, I rarely get to see analysis of "ultra-high" timeframe charts, so I decided to make a couple of attempts of my own. Previously, I analysed long term charts of the Euro, the Yen, the Cable and the Swissie.
Today I'll have a look at yearly and quarterly Loonie charts that are covering the period from 1971 to 2015. While the yearly may be of some use for a quick overview of price action, the quarterly chart offers more detail and makes trends, ranges and patterns more easily observable. I will be focusing on the latter for my analysis.
Yearly Chart
Quarterly Chart
Broken Trendline
One of the first things that I noticed on the chart is the upward sloping channel that the pair traded in from 1971 to 2003. The channel bottom (trendline) was broken in 2004 and has been acting as a resistance since. It capped the pair in 2008 and 2009 and I expect it to continue to play that role, should the pair meet it in the future. The trendline is currently centered around 1.3750.

In my previous articles i have written about my simple automated strategies and how i created them , But today i will be doing something on Advance trend trading and visual confirmation of price movement . In this article i will be discussing on how i use of Support and resistance levels to trade in the trending Markets and Remember when you trade at trending markets the probabilities of success automatically increases because direction of market has already decided and most of people are already trading and placing their orders in the same direction. So when you trade with the mass public success rate of your trade already becomes higher.
It has been a usual statement by market technicians that the simplicity of the mkt is its greatest disguise.Technical analysis is a science that anticipates short-term price changes by using recent patterns, trends, reversals, and ranges.This fascinating topic has as its foundation in the concept of support and resistance, the borders of a trading range in which trading action occurs.
As the cornerstone of all technical approaches to price study, support and resistance is perhaps the most important con…

Yes, you’re still in the right place. You’re still in the School of Pipsology and not in some Japanese pop fan girl site (although Huck may disagree with the rest of the FX-Men on that). No, “Ichimoku Kinko Hyo” ain’t Japanese for “May the pips be with you.” but it can help you grab those pips nonetheless.
Ichimoku Kinko Hyo (IKH) is an indicator that gauges future price momentum and determines future areas of support and resistance. Now that’s 3-in-1 for y’all! Also know that this indicator is mainly used on JPY pairs.
To add to your Japanese vocab, the word ichimoku translates to “a glance”, kinko means “equilibrium”, while hyo is Japanese for “chart.” Putting that all together, the phrase ichimoku kinko hyo stands for “a glance at a chart in equilibrium.” Huh, what does all that mean?
A chart might make things easier to explain…
Whoops. That didn’t help. A few more lines and this’ll resemble a seismograph.
Before you go off and call this gibberish, let’s try to find out what each of the lines is for.
Kijun Sen (blue line): Also called standard line or base line, this is calculated by averaging the highest high and the lowest low for the past 26 periods.

► IntroductionIn this article we will discuss how to profit by following the trend. We will use a powerful strategy to achieve this goal. The strategy includes an entry, stop loss and take profit levels. Some charts, with setups and trade examples, are also included. These examples help explain the 1-2-3-TRADE Strategy and reinforce different points we’ll discuss.This is a very technical method. We simply count the times a trend line is being tested. We enter the trade exactly at the right moment, the third test. Although the method is simple, it is quite effective and profitable. Two back-tests (on EUR/USD and GBP/USD) clearly demonstrate this. I hope you find this article and strategy helpful for your trading. :-)____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________► What Really Happens in a Trend Line?Here is an example of an up trend on the EUR/USD Daily chart. Buyers supported price at the first six points (green arrows). However, when price tested the trend line for the seventh time, buyers lost power. Price started to range around the trend line (red…

@geula4x hi thank you for this awesome article,
what if the 3rd touch (test candle) go in the other side of the trendline but close in the good side of the trendline with at least 20 pips away from it, do we enter the trade or no?

@adloule Hello :) IMHO yes, we should trade. As long as the CLOSE of any candle isn't below the trendline, the trend is still valid. Happy trading :)

► IntroductionThis article is a continuation of "Profit from Trend Lines' Confluence". In the previous article, we talked about how to profit from trend lines' confluence. We learned to draw trend lines and mark an area around two trend lines' confluence point. Then, we just wait for price to test the confluence area and enter a trade.In this article we will take a closer look at trend lines. I would like to suggest a better way to draw trend lines. This lets us draw trend lines more correctly. It also helps us find more trend lines and confluence points on a chart. Therefore, the number of potential trades increases too.Also, I have done some back tests on Daily charts. I tried to test different aspects of this strategy: the confluence area, test candle, trade rules etc. I wanted to see if any of them can be improved. I hope the conclusions will help us make this strategy more precise and profitable.__________________________________________________________________________________________► Old Rule For Drawing Trend LinesIn the previous article, we drew trend lines by simply connecting candles' lows for an up trend, or candles' highs for a down trend.

"You do need to recognize that professional traders can do a number of things to better their trading positions: Gapping up or gapping down, shake-outs, testing, and up-thrusts are all moneymaking maneuvers helping the market-makers to trade successfully, at your expense – it matters not to them, as they do not even know you." - Tom Williams, Former Institutional Trader and VSA creatorVolume Spread Analysis (VSA) is the improvement upon the original teaching of Richard D. Wyckoff (1873 – 1934) by Tom Williams, a former professional operator in the stocks market for 15 years in the 1960s-70s. Williams improved the work started by Wyckoff by further developing the importance of the price spread and its relationship to both the volume and the candle close.This method is proven and time tested, even though it has been constantly updated and upgraded to keep up with the market changes. The World Cup Trading Championship has been won several times by VSA traders - Tim Rayment, for instance, won in 2009 with a 44% gain.VSA seeks to establish the cause of price movements. The “cause” is simply the imbalance between supply and demand in the market, which is created by the activity of profes…

► IntroductionTrend lines are one of the most important technical ways to analyze a chart. As traders, finding and drawing trend lines correctly is very important. Trends usually act as moving support and resistance levels.Price often keeps above or below trends, for an extended period of time. Trends are usually good entry points for trade positions. Also, they help us gauge the general direction of the market and how strong the move is.In this article we will discuss how to profit from trend lines' confluence. This is a complete strategy with entry, stop loss and take profit levels. We will use a simple, step-by-step approach for achieving this goal.We will analyze the Daily time frame. However, you can use the same technique for any time frame you trade. Some recent charts of EUR/USD are also included, for a better understanding of this method and how easily it can be used.This is a very technical method. So perhaps it can be automated. If any JForex (or Visual JForex) programmer is interested, please feel free to automate it. I think that many traders, including myself, could benefit from it.I hope you find this article helpful for your trading. :-)_____________________________…

Trend lines are very useful in trading, so thumbs up for a good article explaining a strategy with them :) Just be careful with "I am quite sure that I've seen this setup work again and again in live trading", our brains usually fool us by showing us mostly the good trades and ignoring the bad ones, I've been burned by that in the past. Always fully test a strategy, don't rely on what it may seem you are seeing, it may be wrong... :) I also like your little arrows to separate topis, I think I've seen then before :D ;)

does the pair of monetary increase/lower ,the other one also
increases/lowers ?And when does the pair of monetary increase but the other
pair of monetary lowers ?
How do
we know about those ?
One of
aims of the writing is that we find its correlation  and
then we can know clearer about pairs of monetary .
Some concrete examples :
NZD/USDWith the
chart ,we see pairs of monetary have the same trend (tendency) and close

Reversal Signals and Patterns are formed based on the price action between the bulls and the bears and is an indication of the end of a trend, the beginning of a trend and retracement within a trend. These signals and patterns are very useful to traders as it provides a guideline to close existing positions and to open new trades. There are various types of Reversal Signals and Patterns of which the most common ones are:- Trendline penetration Signal- Head and Shoulder Pattern- Double and Triple Tops and BottomsThe ones I have mentioned are easily identified,simple and effective for any style of trading. It is important to note that Reversal Signals and Patterns only exist in a trending market and when they have been identified, I recommend that they should be coupled with other factors as confirmation to support the potential reversal at the price range or the price levels where these patterns are formed. Some of these factors are:- Monthly, Weekly and Daily Support and Resistance levels- Candlestick formations - Previous market behavior I will be doing a series this month on these Signals and Patterns and will elaborate on Trend line Penetration in my first of the series.TRENDLIN…
