"How can I find and trade tops and bottoms?"
It's one of the most common questions I get from beginner traders.
The simple answer:
Follow technical analysis strategies and reversal signals that are proven to work.
Here's one of my favourite strategies to find major trend reversals:
By doing a quick analysis of the chart and finding levels where most traders will trade breakouts.
Then patiently wait and watch how price moves when the "breakout" happens.
If the breakout fails and you get a reversal signal, you have a high probability setup.
This strategy works on all markets and time frames.
I prefer it trading forex and stocks on the 1h and daily chart.
In the chart below, you can see an example of a trend reversal buy setup.
