Hello traders, following up from my previous educational post I received several requests via private message for my take on the pattern.
Featured on the chart is an illustration of a complete pattern including the rules I personally use to trade it.
This is an easily identifiable pattern which can be traded across various timeframes which means it can be used by day traders, swing traders or even position traders.
Why the pattern?
- It has an excellent risk:reward
- Appears on all timeframes and markets
- Easy to remember and find
- It has a precise entry, stop loss and take profit
This formation is mainly seen at market tops. It is rarely perfect in appearance and you may need a good eye to spot one (check my head and shoulder trading ideas for an example).
You can draw this pattern by using the TradingView tool found on the chart section named "Head & Shoulders" or by using .
From personal experience the best performing pattern will have a right shoulder that is a of the head.
The correct way to trade this pattern is to wait until the entire pattern has formed, then once price closes below the neckline... You can enter your position :)
To round off this post I truly hope this explained how to trade the pattern so you can use this for your own trading.
I am available via private message for any questions you may have.
I suggest to read news on what is expected, noting that tomorrow we will see where Brexit goes
