Hello All,

Hope you all are doing well. My self @stream4u, I am from India and one of your crypto professors, welcome you all to my class.

This is my third lecture Technical Analysis. Till now we learn some basics about candles, candle charts, what are they mean on the chart, how different time frames can be set in the chats, and the basic concepts of Support and Resistance.

I am really feeling good and happy with all your homework tasks, from the homework task, I can also see that the beginner level is now gaining good knowledge and command on the technical chart.

I am trying my best to make these courses as simple as possible so that new ones can also understand this easily.

It's a humble request to all interested, first understand the course then please read the homework task 2-3 times, make a homework task that includes all requested topics, the post has to be covered all topics. Make sure the information available in your pot is not taken from other sources.

In this course, we will be going to learn more about what is the Chart Patterns and will also learn few Chart Patterns which make us a successful technical analyst and it will also help us to identify the right time for an investment.

Let's begin our 3rd class.

Chart Patterns

Below images taken from my TradingView account.


In the above images generally, we can say they are charts. However, while we are investing and trading they are actually price formations or you can say chart pattern for assets.

These patterns perform one of the most crucial roles in technical analysis to confirm the signals for buy or sell.

Such chart patterns can be found in any time frame of a candlestick chart(5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 day) and provide clear signals for entry and exit based on their Support and Resistance.

As we learn that the Support is the level from where assets price looks difficult to move below and Resistance is the level where assets price looks difficult to move above.

According to the Support and Resistance levels chart patterns provide a proper indication for entry and exit, price forecast, profit and stop level target.

In the technical chart and based on price breakout, there are mainly two types of patterns we see, Continuation patterns and reversal patterns.

Price Breakout

As we said, Support is the level from where assets price looks difficult to move below and Resistance is the level where assets price looks difficult to move above. Now, when any asset price tries to move above resistance or below the support, this movement of price called as Price Breakout.

Example For Resistance Breakout

Example For Support Breakout

Entry Level: It is risky to Trading or Investment on the Price Breakout level, but it is also the quickest trade which gives a big profit in very little time.

Example For Price Breakout


Stop Level(STOPLOSS): Previous, second last Support Line. If you entered with a buy order at the breakout and later if the price comes down then you have to exit from the position when the price goes more down to the second last support.

Continuation Patterns

In the continuation pattern, it indicates the major chances of the assets will continue in their existing trend, it could be either downtrend or uptrend. In this, the collection of the price or retracements done quickly within the same trend.

To identify the Continuation patterns on the Technical chart, Higher High and Lower Low is one of the patterns and can be seen on the technical chart in any time frame.

Higher High Pattern

In this, the buyers take command on the asset price more than sellers and take the price back to the recent high.

Higher High Formation

Lower Low Pattern

In this, the sellers take command on the asset price more than buyers and take the price back to the recent low.

Lower Low Formation

Draw A Trend Line For Entry Level

When you find the support level and waiting for the asset price to come down at the support line, but then the asset price went up from the middle before the support level.

Here, you will see two low points but the second point is upside than the first point. Draw a Trend Line at this both low and let the trend line continue.

Based on the Trend Line, when asset price comes down and touches the Trend Line, we can go for Buy.

Entery Level In Higher High Formation

Similar to the above Higher High formation concept, the buyer can take their exit point and the seller can take their entry point in Lower Low formation.

NOTE 1: For safe trade make sure the first low point is close to the third low which is buying level, because price moving in an overbought, and when price movement breaks the trend line, then it can be possible that the market trend may get change.

NOTE 2: For buyers at the third low point, the Stop Level(STOPLOSS) will be the first low point.

NOTE 3: If you missed and the market already moved in a Higher High or Lower Low Formation, then you can choose any low/high as a first and according to that third low/high for entry, but first low/high will be Stop Level(STOPLOSS).

Reversal Patterns

The basic concept about Reversal Patterns we have already learn in Support and Resistance. Now we will see in detail.

In Reversal Patterns, it indicates the major possibilities that the existing trend is come to the end and now the trend may go in the reverse direction.

Reversal Patterns provide signals quite early and indicate about the trend change with a small range of Stop levels (STOPLOSS). However, after the indication of Reversal Patterns, the trend not changed speedily or immediately and sometimes move in the range only.

Reversal Patterns can identify on the charts by Candlestick formation, one of the most usable formations which we called as Double Top and Double Bottom.

Double Top

Top means a high point, and double top means two high points but at the same level. As we are mentioning the word High which means the reversal pattern indicates the start of the downside.

In this we see the price movement made a high point, then come down and again come to around the same last high point, here it looks like its struggling but not getting success, this indicates that the uptrend is reaching to the end and downtrend will start.

Those who brought the asset at the support level or in a higher high formation can take an exit when it was found that the Double Top pattern has created on the Chart.

Example For Double Top

Double Bottom

Opposite to the Double Top, the Double Bottom formation is like, the price pullback in the downtrend and later come at around the same level, here it looks difficult to go down more which indicate that the reverse mode from the bottom is confirmed and the trend may go in the reverse from the bottom which means upside.

Those we wanted to enter into the asset can find this formation and once it confirmed they can enter at this level.

Example For Double Bottom

In the double bottom, you can see after confirmation at the second bottom the price started moving up and further, we can also see higher high formation which confirmed the trend reversal.

Stop Level(STOPLOSS)

While investing or in Trading, we should have to work with the Stop Level(STOPLOSS). Stoploss is a type of order which you set to exit from a session to avoid more losses.

In crypto or any other market, nothing is defined, every day is a new day in a market. We may don't know what is happening at the backend, with the help of technical study we can see the entry and exit points, but the same chart also provides you Stop Level(STOPLOSS) point and if price cross or tuches the Stop level, then we should have to move from that trade and accept the small, don't wait more or else the loss will get increased.

The technical concept does not provide 100% accuracy but with proper study and a good level of patience, we can find entry and exit levels, this chart also provides us Stop Level(STOPLOSS) for incase if the market does not move according to the chart formation then how and where we can limit the loss.

With the help of Stoploss, you are giving a limit for the loss, and instead of increasing loss, it will good to exit with a small loss and move to the next assets, then find an entry point.

Stoploss can be found based on the Assets history where the previous support stands.

While Investing or Trading and placing a buy order, we have to check the Assets history and find previous support so that we can limit for our losses.

Ideally, there has to be 3 support and 3 resistance, but at least we have to find 2 supports based on assets history, and according to that we can go for buy order and limit for losses.

Example: Hot To Find & Place Stoploss Order

Let's zoom in on the same chart.

Example: Hot To Find & Place Stoploss Order

According to your pocket size you can decide the level for the stop loss. Mostly second or third support/resistance should be a Stop Level(STOPLOSS), for safe trade find third support/resistance which closes to the first support/resistance(entry point)

NOTE 1: Make a strict rule to work with a Stop Level(STOPLOSS) while Investing and Trading.

We will stop here. You may feel that now technical concept may going little difficult, but believe me, it is not difficult that much, you just need to see graphs and understand the market, once you understand the market well then only you can able to make a profit and the limit losses too.
