We are what we think; all that we are, arises with our thoughts; with our thoughts, we make the world.

Consolidation

70% of the time the market is consolidation; only 30% of the time the market is trending (uptrends or downtrends).

70% of the time the market is in consolidation; only 30% of the time it is trending.

When the candles are no longer making higher highs and higher lows (uptrend) or lower highs and lower lows (downtrend) then the candles are in consolidation.

We do not follow the fibonacci’s when we are in consolidation. We do not follow crowns either.

We draw the lines of support and resistance. If the distance between support and resistance is greater than 120 pips, it is large consolidation.

When the candles go down to support and we see a good bullish candlestick formation, we enter long. We place our stop 10 pips below the support line (or low of the candlestick formation) and we place our limit 10 pips before the line of resistance. It is a good idea to move your stop loss each time a higher low is formed.

When the candles go up to resistance and we see a good bearish candlestick formation, we enter short. We place our stop 15 pips above the resistance line (or high of the candlestick formation) and we place our limit 10 pips before the line of support. It is a good idea to move your stop loss each time a lower high is formed.

When we are in consolidation we draw lines of support and resistance. If the distance between support and resistance is 60 pips or less, we have small consolidation.

We cannot trade small consolidation. We must wait for a breakout.

If the candles break out north (above the resistance line), wait for the first bullish decision candle, 75% body (25% wick) and enter after that candle is formed. Place your stop 10 pips below the support line or below the last low.
the candles break out south (below the support line), wait for the first bearish decision candle, 75% body (25% wick) and enter after that candle is formed. Place your stop 15 pips above the resistance line or above the last high.
