Let’s move on to the homework,

### Chart Pattern

As per our previous week's studies now we now know that Candlestick provides price movement within a specified time frame. Chart is something that has many candlesticks which means to say many price movements along the time frame we choose. Hence there are many Chart Patterns in a single market. Understanding them correctly a trader can perform three simple actions,

• Sell
• Be patient

### Price Breakout

Breakout happens when the price movements are above the resistance area and below the support area. In the below chart you can see the resistance level price is at \$56,250/- however, the breakout occurs 04 times around the price of \$56,500/-

Support level is at \$55,750/- and then price has dropped on few occasions with the lowest at \$53,500/-

### Continuation Pattern

This is where the trend is likely to continue after the Breakout point. Continuation can happen in both directions as Higher High and Lower Low.

• Higher High Formation

According to this chart, we can see the Higher High Formation tends to resume and remain in play. The resistance level is at \$53,000/- after the price breakout, there onwards to \$53,250/- then \$53,800/- then \$54,800/- and finally reaching higher as \$56,600/-

• Lower Low Formation

According to this chart, we can see the Lower Low Formation
tends to resume and remain in play. The support level is at \$55,750/- after the price breakout, there onwards to \$55,400/- then \$54,881/- then \$54,300/- and finally reaching the lowest as \$53,500/-

### Reversal Pattern?

Reversal Pattern is changing the direction in price movement. This is the opposite of continuation. It also indicates that the existing trend is come to the end. If the current trend is uptrend then the reversal would be to the downside. Likewise, if the trend is downtrend then reversal would be to the upside.

### Double Top Pattern

This is where the chart shows two identical high points. We can see the “M” type of letter resembles in this pattern. Such points indicate a bearish reversal in the current trend. Double tops can be a good indicator to sell.

### Double Bottom Pattern

This is the exact opposite of the Double Top. Here we can see the “W” type of letter resembles in this pattern. This sign could be an indicator for a bullish trend and give a good sign to buy.

### Importance of Stop Level (STOPLOSS)

Stoploss will give us a cushion to avoid losses and act as a defensive move. With trading, we will tend to go with the flow and make risky decisions. None of these charts or patterns are defined and if the price falls from an unexpected value it may continue the bearish trend to fall much further. Hence to protect from such cases we must have a stoploss.

### Where to Find & How to Set A Stoploss?

Having 2 to 3 support levels & resistance levels will give us the cushion we want. If we set the stoploss too far from the support level, we take unnecessary risk and it may lead to huge losses. Also, if we set the stoploss too close then we may lose the chance to make a profit. However, decide any of this will depend according to the set target and the budget you have.

### Conclusion.

I enjoyed learning these new concepts and patterns. It’s like playing something. If you get it wrong you will have losses, you must know how to evaluate and analyze before making any decision. Also, Patience is a must in this game. Hence, It gives me more confidence to trade. I’m getting a feeling that I can read the charts more than yesterday and probably better tomorrow. I’m waiting for the next lesson eagerly.

Thank you Steem Team & @stream4u
