Why Hedge Funds Don’t Wait for Candlestick “Confirmation” — It’s Not What You Think

I had no intention to share this…

…But after receiving feedback like this:

Awesome, love your reviews! – Kent

Thank you for the clear explanation. Love it! – Chandra

This non-existent feud is a bit embarrassing to watch. Thanks for giving your take on this. Very illuminating. – Haroun

I knew this is something you must see…

It started when I was reading a trading article that explains why hedge funds don’t wait for candlestick “confirmation”.

To a new trader, it seems to make sense. But, to a seasoned trader, there are several loopholes to this.

So… I did this video to share my thoughts and reveal the “inner workings” of the financial markets.

You’ll discover:

  • Why hedge funds don’t trade using candlestick patterns
  • Why bank traders aren’t really traders, but what they do instead
  • What is high-frequency trading (HFT), and how does it affect you
  • Does the pinbar really work, or it’s just a hype
  • And much more…


You won’t usually come across this type of information because you either have to be in the industry or, know people from the industry.

So, if this interests you… then go watch this video below:

So, here’s a question for you…

  • Great comments! Do you think it’s possible to trade and make money with just one price action strategy like trading breakout? Wouldn’t the method be less effective if many people trading the same setup?

    • Hey John,

      The thing is not everyone is going to trade breakout. Some go for pullback, some use indicators etc.

      It’s impossible for everyone to use the same trading method.

  • Another possible explanation may be the hedge funds create pin bar, we trade pin bar merely to follow the big players.

  • Hey Rayner,

    Im confused big time. Do hedge funds actually invest (eg value investing like warren buffet, FA) or speculate (eg trade like Ed Seykota, TA) as their strategy? I’ ve always wondered and wanted to know badly.
