    • Hi Øyvind,

      I don’t trade systematically, so I don’t measure expectancy of specific patterns.

      Rather, I measure my expectancy of my trading as a whole.


  • Hi Rayner,
    Found this video enlightening as a beginner.I am trading on demo and had come across situation where the market is only going one way all day without clearly defined support/ resistance.I will try this next time I come across that .

  • 2 questions: 1) On the “Fakey,” your examples showed an IB prior to the “Fakey” bar. Was that just a coincidence or do you need an IB before the “Fakey” to confirm the possible continuation? and 2) The Continuation Patterns (Flags, Triangles, etc.) are primarily consolidation patterns within the Trend. You did not discuss how to enter or where to put SL for these patterns. So, that raises the question in relation to Inside Bars: On the breakout of the “Flag,” for example, do you wait for an Inside Bar to confirm an entry?

    • Hi Chaplainrick,

      1) A Fakey setup is false breakout of the inside bar. So you need an inside bar prior to it.

      2) There’s few ways you can trade it. The break of the swing high for bullish flags, with stop loss of below the swing low, or 2 ATR from it.

      The primary discussion of this video was to explain inside bars, thus I did not discuss specifically on how to enter the continuation patterns. Its for traders to think along the lines of price action, rather than memorize trading patterns to trade.


  • Hi, may I know any broker, market-maker, ECNs or trading companies that are reliable enough whether in Singapore or overseas for me to trade live for FOREX, CFDs, ETFs, commodities, metals, indices, options etc ?

  • Hi there Ray,
    Newbie here. Thank you for your knowledge. I wish there are more people like you!

    1) Can I say this strategy is applicable across all time periods, 5 min, 15 min, 30 min, 1hr, 4 hr, daily, weekly or monthly??
    2) When you say understand the price action, are you saying we should look for a “pause” – indecision and then trade in the direction of the trending 10 EMA??

    • Hello Sandro,

      Thank you for your kind words.

      1) I typically execute this on the daily and 4 hour.

      2) Understand price action is more of getting a feel of the market. How much it tends to retrace, how “bold” the candles are etc.


      • Hi- Love your energy and smarts-
        Why the 4hr? what is the major significance of that time period? tHanks
        please respond to my email address

        • Hey J,

          I just so happen to trade the 4 hour and daily often.

          There’s no best time frame, rather its about finding something that suits your trading approach.
