How to Combine Price Action with Multiple Timeframes

One of the simple yet powerful techniques I use to allow me to quickly identify trading opportunities with minimal time and effort (typically 15 minutes a day), is to use this Excel table which combines price action with multiple timeframes.

To create this table, I observe the daily and weekly charts of various products (forex, stocks, cryptocurrencies, commodities, etc), and list down whether I think it is bullish or bearish on each timeframe. For the weekly chart, I only need to update it once a week, and for the daily chart, this takes me a few minutes a day.

Here are some chart examples:

This is the daily chart of the EUR/USD, and you can see that it just completed a pullback and is looking bullish. So under EUR, I mark it as bullish. For most products, I always benchmark them against the USD for easy comparison.

 

This is the weekly chart of the EUR/USD, and you can see that it is also very bullish, and rebounding off a large trendline. With the alignment of both the daily and weekly trends, this make the EUR/USD a very good long trade to be in. And since the GBP is also weak, going long on the EUR/GBP is also a good idea.

 

For the S&P 500, the long-term trend is bullish, but the short-term trend is bearish. In such a scenario, we will pass and wait for more price action. The goal is to take the best trades, not take as many trades as possible. Quality over quantity.

The Art of Precision Timing: Calling the Big Crash in Bitcoin One Day Before!

Last week, I spotted a bearish “3 black crows” pattern on the Bitcoin chart, and immediately posted in my 5000+ member forum, to warn everyone about the big crash about to come.  The recommended course of action was to rotate out of Bitcoin (into cash or Tether), or to take short positions on Bitcoin.

 

The very next day, Bitcoin crashed a whooping 30%, making it one of the worst correction in recent times. I am glad we helped many people avert his disaster, by keeping an alert eye on the chart at all times.

Remember, just because something keeps going up, does not mean it won’t have corrections. And if you avoid the major corrections, you can buy back in at a much cheaper price to increase your long-term returns.

How this Simple Chart Predicted the Bitcoin Crash – When Is a Good Time to Buy Again?

Last week, we spotted a few major warning signs on the chart that Bitcoin was going to have a large correction, and I also shared them in this free FB discussion group. This group is one of the fastest growing communities on Cryptocurrencies, and we are planning to use it to provide free education and trade signals.

 

Looking at the current chart, we have seen a rough 25% correction, and I think there might be another leg of correction before the major trend resumes upwards. For those who managed to close their long positions to avoid this correction, as well as those who are waiting on the sidelines, this could be an excellent chance to get in once the correction is over.

My new trainer (the crypto expert) and I will be sharing more this Tuesday at the last workshop of 2017, and do some live analysis on the various cryptocurrencies.

See you there! 😀

Bitcoin Hits New High Above $5000 – There Will Be Another Buying Opportunity Very Soon!

Just yesterday, Bitcoin hit a new high again, breaking above the $5000 barrier, and bringing double digit gains to all those vested.

While there has been much speculation on this fundamentals of this cryptocurrency, it was actually a pretty familiar pattern for those used to reading the charts. I will explain more in the chart below, and show why there is going to be a good buying opportunity really soon.

Trade call and chart posted on our official Synapse Trading FB page – before the breakout!

 

If you look at this chart of Bitcoin, you will see that the majority of the price bars are green in colour, meaning the buyers have always been in control of this counter.

In addition, the counter has been moving up in a series of higher highs and higher lows, which is a classic sign up an uptrend.

Which means that all you need to do is to enter on dips in the price, as explained in my previous article.

 

The next question of course is how far can it go, and for this we can use the breakout projection technique, which would give a projection of about $6500.

But here is the exciting part: In such a breakout, especially at a key number, there is a very good chance (not 100%, but high), that the price will pull back to test the $5000 region again.

Yes, you heard right. If you had missed the previous move, hopefully there is another chance. I will be waiting to add on to my positions.

If it goes from $5000 to $6500, that is a gain of 30%, which is way better returns than buying any stock or REIT. And it could happen in weeks/months.

I will continue to monitor this counter. In the meantime, trade safe, and win big! 😀
