Support and resistance levels is the simple and universal tool. They are applicable to any actively traded markets and timeframes, they don’t lag, have been in place for decades and don’t require adjustments to historical data.
Some traders, having tried many indicators in search of a perfect system, made their trading more understandable and effective due to the use of levels alone. And it’s no surprise since all ingenious is simple. Other traders use levels as an additional tool for market analysis. After completing this course, you’ll figure out how levels can improve your trading and recognize the important role of this tool in your trading plan.
This course reveals the issues needed to develop skills for applying support and resistance horizontal levels in practical trading – how to plot levels, what number of them is optimal, the properties of levels, examples in trading, etc.
The format of materials contains videos available online. The total length of video material is 90 minutes.
In this video we’ll talk about how to plot horizontal support and resistance levels. Apart from this, we will analyze for what reason they are invented and how to determine and apply them in trading. First of all, it is worth noting that horizontal support and resistance levels work on all timeframes without exception.
Therefore, such approach to trading will be useful both for those traders who open positions within the day, that is, for those who trades short-term and for those who are ready to hold positions for several weeks, in other words, who trades medium-term.
The first property of support and resistance levels allows us to determine the trend direction, which is the direction of the market at the moment when one can trade in case entry signals appear on the current or lower timeframes.
In this video we will talk about the second property of support and resistance levels, which sounds in the following way: the market is more likely to bounce off the horizontal level than it will break it through.
We will discuss why this happens. We will also analyze the true reasons of the main market participants while trading near the levels and we will take the examples.
In this video we will analyze the third property of support and resistance levels, which reads as follows: after the breakout, the support sometimes turns into the resistance and the resistance into the support. This property is called as «reflecting». We will discuss the reasons of such market movements and take the examples.
In this video we’ll talk about how the market moves after the level breakout and consider breakout trading and pullback trading.
There are situations in the market when at first sight it’s difficult to determine if the resistance or support level has been broken or not. This happens when the price is closed several points above the resistance level in case we are looking for a buying opportunity or slightly below the support level when opening a sell position.
In this article we will discuss how to interpret such situations and whether they are worth considering as a level breakout.
We've discussed earlier the principles of plotting the horizontal levels, as well as their properties. In this video we will consider the use of pending stop orders when trading a breakout. These are such orders as buy stop and sell stop. Now by several examples, I will demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of their use.
In this video we will discuss why we need a trading plan and what main points it should contain for successful trading in the market.
Chaotic and systemless trading is a kind of gambling and in the long-term such approach guarantees loss of funds and has nothing to do with trading.
Each trader who is responsible for the trading process must follow the clear principles when entering and exiting the market. Therefore, each trader needs a trading plan. And now we will analyze its key points.
Sometimes there are situations where, despite the signal existence, there is no possibility to enter the market because the minimum required risk-reward ratio is not met. The risk is too high or the potential profit is too small.
Often in such situations you can still get an excellent risk-reward ratio and enter the market, but to do this you have to switch to a smaller timeframe. For example, if you mostly trade on the Daily timeframe then the market entry will be determined on the H1 timeframe.
In this video we’ll take this approach as an example.
In this video we’ll discuss several examples of using one of the key trading tactics which is applicable in any markets and timeframes that is a breakout trading.
In this video we'll talk about pullback trading. This is my favorite trading tactics. Its idea is to search for the entry point at the time of the market correction completion.
Levels indicator has been created in order to simplify the process of plotting support and resistance levels and zones on selected timeframes. It significantly reduces the time needed to plot them on the chart and simplifies a market analysis process.
Horizontal support and resistance levels are used to identify price zones where the market move can slow down or price reverse is likely to occur. Levels indicator helps identify find entry signals that appear during a deep market correction, or calculate stop-loss and take-profit.
