In this article, I am going to explain a simple but powerful trading system, as an example of how to combine a short term view, with a wider one. In order to do so, I will use a thirty minutes chart to find good entry points, and a wider time frame, that in this case will be four hours, to see the main tendency.
In order to have a more clear vision of this, we will be using some tools, such as trend lines in the four hours time frame chart, which will be very useful to set clear limits on when and where the tendency starts and ends. This is very important, because while the positions are open, it is very easy to fall in a deceptive spiral of wishful thinking and tolerance to losses, that invariably will lead us to undesired results. To avoid that, the use of a simple line will show us this limits, and will help us in the decision making process when we are inside the market.
Let’s see an example of this, for the EURUSD pair, in a four hours time frame chart of the current week:
We can see that, from the candle that actually ends the bullish tendency, until the start of the bearish one, there is a period of almost one week of uncertainty, in which, we will be systematically out of t…

This is why every trader, must base their operative on their own analysis and anyone using this article as a guideline, is doing it on their own responsibility.
The price of the USDCAD pair is drawing an interesting triangle in the daily chart, between the levels reached on January 2016 of almost 1.47, and the 1.25 level reached on May 2016. After that, the price have been moving quietly between those levels, until the current point in 1.307, where, as I am going to explain, it’s about to go up, but in my opinion, only to achieve and probably for the last time, the levels of the upper line of the triangle, and from that point on, start falling for a long lasting period of time, that according to…
