Step 6

Our confirmation will be a formation of an engulfing candle - a strong candle that completely engulfs the entire range of a previous candle with its body. Learn More About Engulfing Candle

In a bearish trend, we will look for a formation of a bearish engulfing candle. Bearish engulfing candle indicates a strong selling pressure and the strength of the sellers.

In a bullish trend, we will look for a bullish engulfing candle. It indicates a strong buying reaction and imbalance.

Step 7

Open a trading position, set stop loss and choose the target.

After you spotted an engulfing candle, open a trading position.

Open short after a formation of a bearish engulfing candle and open long after a formation of a bullish engulfing candle.

If you sell, your safest stop loss will be 1.272 extension of the last bullish impulse on a 4H.

If you buy, your stop loss will be 1.272 extension of the last bearish impulse on a 4H.
