Trends don?t last forever. Eventually they exhaust themselves and quite often, a new trend in the opposite direction emerges. However, established trends can often last much longer and go much further than most anticipate. Therefore, trying to buy a market because it is ?low? or sell short market because it is ?high? is a loser?s game. The good news is that markets will leave clues that a trend is turning. Dave will show you how to recognize these clues and capture new trends early with his favourite trend transition patterns. He?ll also show you how major bull and bear markets all begin with easy to recognize transitional patterns.
In this presentation, Dave will show you why you should trade trends, how to recognize them, and some of his favourite patterns to capitalize on the three phases of a trend. As you know, a pattern in itself is useless unless it is applied properly. Therefore, he will show you when to use each of the patterns. Further, he will also touch upon important concepts such as money management, trader?s psychology, how to find the best setups, and discretionary techniques so that these patterns can be applied in the real world.
