Most successful trade setups are derived when patterns are trading with Market Context.
Here is an example of trading an ABC Pattern with EquiVolume Trend, Pivots and Market Strucutes.
This morning (Apr. 18th), @NQ opened almost 20 points lower and started to display a potential
bearish trend. @NQ opened in Fib. Zone Support zone (4520-4527) and started to quicly reverse
from FZP by forming MSL (Market Structure Low). Around 9.50am, it confirmed ABC Setup with Market Structure low by forming 'C' with 65% retracement at 4524 near Prev. Low (PL).
Equivolume bars/trend (EVTrend) is an excellent way to determine the underlying trends. After ABC formation, EVTrend also showed trend change (Bullish) and signaled continuation of its uptrend in ABC Bullish Pattern. ABC Long entry was at 4528 or higher with STOP at 4522. First target zone (62-79%): 4532-435, Second Zone: (127-162%) $4541-4546, Third Zone (227-262%): 4555-4560.
Around 10am, NQ reached its 2nd target zone (4541-4546) up +13 points.
Around 1030am, NQ reached its 3nd target zone (4555-4560) up +27 points.
Market Structures concept is simple, yet a very powerful structuring concept. Markets have structures
and traders miss most cues as they are constantly hunting some pattern, momentum, oscillator
or some Zen-type signals. Market Structure formation is a price phenomenon occurring at
major turns. Prices start with a wave (lets say Up) and it ends at some point and then there is
down-wave, and it ends some time and then up-wave. These wave formations start with the
Market Structures. Market Structure Low (MSL) and Market Structure High (MSH) formation
is continuous and is repetitive at every wave begin and every wave end.
Market Structures form in all markets, all time-frames and in all instruments. They fail and refail,
form and re-form. Market Structure is a concept pattern. It needs other indicators,
support/resistance levels, triggers to confirm the theory and its works.
