How to Use Candlestocks to Find Trading Opportunities in ANY Market - Video

Senior Analyst Jeffrey Kennedy is the editor of our Elliott Wave Junctures educational service and is one of our most popular instructors. Jeffrey's primary analytical method is the Elliott Wave Principle, but he also uses several other technical tools to supplement his analysis. In today's lesson, Jeffrey shows you how to use candlestick patterns to identify opportunities.


You can apply these methods across any market and any time frame.


If you think you need years of experience to identify a high probability trade setup -- you're wrong.

To prove my point, let's examine three price charts using only a few popular Japanese Candlestick patterns and a single simple moving average (SMA).

Japanese Candlestick analysis was introduced to the West by Steve Nison. The information contained in a candlestick chart is the same that is contained in an open-high-low-close chart, except that the data is presented differently using "shadows" and "real bodies."

Moreover, these candlesticks form patterns which are important to traders. If you would like to learn more about candlesticks, I highly recommend the book Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques by Steve Nison.

How do two tools -- candlesticks and a 20-period SMA -- identify high probability trade setups?

The answer is simple in that you use the 20-period SMA to identify the trend and then focus your attention on the appropriate candlestick patterns. If the trend is up, as defined by the slope of the 20-period SMA, focus your attention on bullish engulfing patterns, piercing lines and morning stars. If the trend is down, as defined by the slope of the 20-period SMA, focus your attention on bearish engulfing patterns, dark cloud cover patterns and evening stars.
