The Pin Bar Forex Trading Strategy


Many traders often use support and resistance and this is my view on how to take advantage of it! I hope you guys enjoy the read. Do give me some feedback on what do you think :)

Support and Resistance Lines

Support and resistance lines are lines that the market respects, the higher the time frame the more reliable it is. Resistance is like a ceiling when the market reached the line, it gets bump down and Supports acts like a trampoline when the market try to test the line it bounces up
In this example, the Blue line acts as a resistance while the green line acts as a support. As you can see, the market tests both the support and resistance 3 times but never once did the market close above the line. However, the support line broke and a downtrend was formed eventually.

Support and Resistance Zone

Support and resistance zones are very subjective some use the shadow of the candlesticks to draw the zones while others use areas of the candlesticks. So what is the difference between Zones and Lines support and resistance – personally I think it’s up to your own preferences, however a lot of experts like to use lines as it is very specific, whereas zones have a lot of discretion to it and the perspective varies from person to person.

How are Support and Resistance useful?

Traders like to take these areas/Lines as either entry or exit points. In this example, you can see that the market respected the resistance line. Even though it broke out once, it still got rejected immediately on the second candlestick circled in blue. Soon, a Pin Bar was formed. This is a very good signal to enter a trade as the market is having a bearish momentum.

Where to place take profit and stop loss?

You can place your stop loss above the resistance line as the line is very well respected by the market and your take profit at the previous low of the market. This is because chances of the previous low becoming a support line for the market are high.
In my next content post, I will elaborate more on how you can use the support and resistance lines and the indicators that are commonly used in the forex market. Stay tuned!

My dummies guide to Fibonacci Lines

My dummies guide to Fibonacci Lines
Hi Redditors, I am back again with another guide for you :) Hope you enjoy reading this

What is Fibonacci?

Fibonacci is a number sequence that consist 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 ,8 ,13 ,21 ,34 etc. Each number in this sequences is simply the sum of the previous two numbers. In Forex market the Fibonacci line is a diagram that consists 6 lines, mainly: 0.0, 23.6, 38.2, 50.0, 61.8 and 100.0. These numbers are key Fibonacci ratios if you are wondering how the numbers are formed.

How do you come about using Fibonacci lines?

Drawing of Fibonacci lines
The Fibonacci line can be drawn from a swing low to a swing high of an uptrend or swing high to a swing low of a downtrend
In this example, the white circles are the Swing high and swing low of this downtrend.

Trading with Fibonacci lines

Traders usually take note of 23.6, 38.2, 50.0, 61.8 line, these lines work exactly the same as Support and resistance line the more times the line is tested the more reliable it is. You can also draw a Fibonacci line at a higher timeframe and use it on a lower time frame, this can also increase the reliability of the Fibonacci line - You will need to know that trading Fibonacci line alone is not enough, and is best if there are other indicators that support the lines.

Combination of Candlesticks with Fibonacci lines
In this example, you can see that a Bearish Pin Bar was formed, and it closes below the 50.0 Fibonacci line – this is a very strong indicator that the market will go down, as shown in the image (Green circle).

Combination of Support and Resistance with Fibonacci lines
Here you see that there are two support and resistance line (Green Lines) these lines are also aligned with the Fibonacci 23.6 and 50.0 which makes the Fibo line even stronger. This image you can see how the market respects the line.
Fibonacci lines are very useful in the Forex market if it is used with other indicators, here I have only demonstrated to you 2 examples (Candlesticks and support and resistance line) you can also use it with moving averages, MacD or RSI.

Education post 1/100 – How to trade pin bars?
The Pin Bar Setup I bet you have seen many pin bars on your Forex charts. Maybe you haven’t been aware that you are looking at a pin bar formation, but you most likely have come across this candle on the chart
Bullish Pin Bar A valid, tradeable bullish pin bar is located at the end of a bearish trend and its lower candle wick goes below the overall price action. If you spot a bullish pin bar setup on the chart, this will setup a nice opportunity for a long position.
Bearish Pin Bar The same is true for bearish pin bars but in the opposite direction. The bearish pin bar is located at the end of a bullish trend and its longer candle wick is the upper area. In this manner, the longer wick is sticking out above the price action. The bearish pin bar is usually a good sign of an upcoming price reversal in the bearish direction.
