Certainly, the underlying market bias, which is outlined by the construction of the market, i.e. pattern, key horizontal ranges, and so on. can usually present us with sufficient clues to identify a possible entry. Therefore, studying to determine and plot these items of the technical evaluation “puzzle”, could be very, crucial.

The first items of this puzzle are: Clear black and white value charts, key ranges, tendencies, value motion, market bias and alerts. In consequence, this stuff are my foremost focus when doing my evaluation and market commentaries, as a result of studying the best way to correctly map a market is significant to understanding the best way to correctly commerce with value motion.
Why I Use “Clear” Charts & Set Them Up
Clear charts, or indicator-free charts, are the spine of my technical evaluation and value motion strategy. If you happen to don’t but know why I choose clear, bare value charts, take a look at my article on why indicators will destroy your buying and selling. Suffice it to say, I subscribe to a easy, much less is extra buying and selling philosophy, and for some very, excellent causes, which I’ve written about usually.
If you happen to don’t but use clear, indicator-free value charts, I’ve a wonderful tutorial on the best way to arrange your charts right here that you simply positively want to take a look at. You can too the obtain the metatrader buying and selling platform we use right here.
Right here is a straightforward approach to arrange your charts correctly:
First, you’ll proper click on on the chart after which choose “properties” on the backside of the pop up menu. When you do this, you will notice the next display screen for chart choices. First set the colours and different choices how I’ve them on this picture:
Subsequent, you’ll choose “frequent” and set the choices as follows:

Keep in mind, there’s a cause why I set them up this merely; as a result of easy is healthier in buying and selling and we are attempting to get rid of variables that will confuse us or trigger doubt, worry, and so on.
How I Analyze Clear Value Charts
When writing my weekly members market commentary, the very first thing I do is zoom out on the weekly chart, as a result of I need to get that hen’s eye top-down view, this provides me a good suggestion of what has occurred and the way that will affect what presently is going on.
Within the chart beneath, discover I’ve zoomed out to the weekly view of the present Gold charts. I’ve marked the obvious key ranges of help and resistance. Word, usually these ranges will “flip” from help to resistance or vice versa, as value strikes up or down:
Within the chart picture beneath, discover I’ve zoomed out so I’m trying in regards to the final 12 months’s value of knowledge on the every day charts. This offers me loads of time to see how the earlier 12 months’s ranges and tendencies, in addition to value motion, as led us to the present level. You will note what I’ve drawn in beneath on the chart, these are the degrees I view as essentially the most related in addition to the areas of consolidation and trending value motion, these are the primary issues I’m on the lookout for once I do my value motion evaluation…
Within the subsequent chart, now we have zoomed in a bit extra, however you’ll discover the identical ranges are there. We’re going to dissect issues a bit extra right here.
First, discover the bullish tailed bar on the far left of the chart, this was clearly an essential turning level from all the way down to up, so we are going to draw a horizontal degree on the low of that bar; this degree would as soon as once more be related if value fell again all the way down to it. Then, discover value entered right into a interval of sideways consolidation for nearly two months, earlier than breaking apart and out of it. Nevertheless, after the breakout, value chopped slowly larger after which fashioned a bearish pin bar at 1237.00 space; a resistance degree we had beforehand marked on the chart. Now, while this might be thought of a “counter-trend” pin bar, which often i don’t like, because it was at an essential degree we already had on the chart, and there was a transparent goal beneath on the earlier breakout degree of 1212.00 space, savvy value motion merchants might have thought of a short-term commerce focusing on a transfer into that degree. Word: 1212.00 or actually 1215.00 – 1205.00 space was a really robust zone of help because of the earlier breakout and I might have been trying to get lengthy on a pull again to that space after the upside breakout.
Within the subsequent chart, we’re taking a look at how when a market swings, it leaves behind a degree, and we then watch these ranges for pull backs to commerce in-line with the prevailing momentum.
Discover the areas marked “look ahead to pullbacks”, we might have been waiting for value to tug again to those ranges after it broke above them, to get lengthy and commerce in-line with the bullish momentum that was clearly growing. Ideally, we might get a value motion sign at these ranges after value pulls again to it, however this isn’t at all times essential, as I’ve written about, generally all you want is a degree and a pattern for an entry, see my T.L.S. article for extra…
Lastly, now we have zoomed in to the newest value motion of the every day Gold chart.
From this chart, we will see a few potential entry alerts that fashioned after pullbacks to 1212.00 space and 1237; once more, we had already marked these ranges on our charts and had been ready to “assault” ought to value rotate again into them. At present, as of this writing, value is hovering just below the important thing resistance space up close to 1305 – 1295 space.
I at all times consider analyzing a market from the “high, down”. This implies, you need to begin with the longest timeframe, zoomed out, and you then regularly shorten the timeframe and zoom nearer in. You do that to get a “hen’s eye” view of the market in order that what is going on not too long ago makes extra sense inside the longer-term context. Consider performing your weekly and every day market evaluation like studying a e book; so as so that you can perceive what’s occurring on web page 100, it’s a must to have learn and comprehend pages 1-99. It’s actually no completely different in buying and selling; it’s a must to construct a story in your head from the market you might be analyzing, and also you do that by trying again in time, plotting ranges, analyzing the worth motion after which maintaining with the market every day on the shut, adjusting ranges or including information ones as essential.
When you begin doing this often, it’ll begin to develop into your value motion buying and selling routine and ultimately it’ll flip right into a behavior. Quickly, you’ll completely take pleasure in it as a result of let’s face it, maintaining with the markets is enjoyable (if you happen to’re a buying and selling nerd like me anyhow). So, take pleasure in it, but in addition understand that what you’re doing is getting in-tune with the market and its value motion, and this actually is a requirement if you wish to have any probability at studying to buying and selling professionally.
