Type Of Trades

There are 3 primary breakout failure patterns that are reliable.

  • Single Candle – single candle breakout that fails
  • 2-3 Candle – one candle breakout with 1 or 2 candles follow thru that eventually fails
  • Impulse Move – a multi-candle move that typically follows momentum and bias but ultimately fails by reversing momentum and bias

The false break pattern is primarily a fade trade pattern.
