Reblog: 10 Price Action Trading Tips That Will Help You Become Better Traders


What is price action trading and why it does make you a better trader

Price action trading is a type of trading that allows traders to observe and study the current market. This, in turn, allows you to anticipate the market trend and make certain assumptions/decisions based on the current (and actual) price movements.

Price action trading is the purest type of trading that eliminates all noise.

It does not anticipate, it reads the market.

Price action is great!

Is price action trading better than other types of trading?

Hard to say.

It is really difficult to say if one type of trading is better than another. What matters is which type of trading fits your personality.

Another important element of trading is money management. What matters is even not that much the trading system, but the way you use it.

Profitable traders will agree with me.

Reblog: 5 Ways To Identify The Direction Of The Trend


Trading with the trend is trading with the flow. When the prevailing trend is up, why would you want to look for short entries when buying might result in much smoother trades? Many amateur traders, even when facing a long lasting trend that has been going on for months, can’t stop trying to predict reversals, whereas they could have made so much more money by simply joining the trend.

But even if you are not a trend-following trader, you can combine the concept of trading with the higher timeframe trend with your regular trading approach: you start on the Daily timeframe and see if the trend its up, down or sideways and you use that information on your lower, execution timeframe to time your trades (read here: how to perform a multi-timeframe analysis). To be able to correctly read price action, trends and trend direction, we will now introduce the most effective ways to analyze a chart.

Intro: The different market phases

Before we start going over how to identify the trend, we should be first clear what we are looking for. Markets can do one of three things: go up, go down, or move sideways.

The picture above shows you the three possible scenarios and how markets keep alternating between the phases. But knowing what has happened after the fact is always the easy part. The hard part is finding out what is currently happening when markets are moving in real time and the space on the right is empty – that’s where this article comes in. To be clear, the article is not meant to show you how to identify trading entries, but to understand price and trends in a more efficient way.

For long term buy and hold investing your entry time frame matters, whether you got in at good prices and if you have time after bear markets to get back to even. NASDAQ buy and holders waited a long time from March of 2000 and buy and holders from 2007 also had to wait many years to get back to where they were. The most simple long term moving average systems can beat buy and hold by getting and keeping you in during bull markets and getting you out before big drawdowns. You are capping your downside risk and keeping your upside potential profits open by simply having an entry and exit strategy based on price action not opinions or predictions.
