Advanced Price Action Trading

I have been using price action to trade the Forex markets since 2013, it has been financially rewarding and a lot of fun. I love trading and I love price action.

If you are new to price action trading, there are a couple of free courses below that will teach you the basics...

Price Action Basics - this is a free price action course that is available on my Forex YouTube channel and also on my website.

Price Action 101 - this is another free course that I have created, this is available at Technical Forex.

The internet is full of free price action content but the majority of this content only teaches the basics and is aimed at beginners. If you are interested in more advanced price action trading content, I created this post and the linked videos below just for you...

Advanced Price Action Trading

What is advanced price action

Price action is part of technical analysis. It is a way to analyse financial markets and predict where future price may be.

Advanced price action is a more sophisticated and reliable form of analysis. It focuses on specifics and refines the basics. If you want to make money trading Forex using price action, you need to know advanced price action - the basics is not enough.

Why is advanced price action needed?

Price action is reliable form of analysis for many Forex traders but the basics do not work. Ever tried trading engulfing candles? Perhaps pin bars at horizontal levels? The trades were likely losers. The reason for this is that basic price does not work when trading Forex or any other financial market. You need to know what price action setups work and those that do not. You also need to know what support and resistance you should trade and which you should not. Knowing these things can only come from a professional, someone that trades advanced price action on a regular basis.

Lesson 1 - Channels

Basic price action says, 'look for a setup around a channel support/resistance area'

Advanced price action says...

- Channels are best traded early on. Once a channel becomes obvious, it is likely to break-out. Use the 3 test rule covered in the video below.

- Channels with multiple trading signals - such as dynamic support or resistance - will be much more reliable.

- Channels can provide trading opportunities even when price closes out of the channel (break-out), due to the principle of support turned resistance and resistance turned support.

- Channels struggling to reach either channel support or channel resistance can be an early signal of a break-out

- Indicators, such as moving averages and the RSI, can provide an early signal of break-out

- Channels can be more reliable when combined with daily and weekly levels

Lesson 2 - Stop losses & take profits

Basic price action says, 'place your stop above/below a setup' and 'place your take profit at a set number of pips or risk reward ratio'.

Advanced price action says...

- Use price action to analyse areas of reversal

- A wider stop-loss can improve win rate

- Setting a take profit should be logical and require analysis

- Setting a stop-loss should be logical and require analysis

All covered in the video below...

Lesson 3 - Indicators

Basic price action says, 'you don't need indicators, your charts should be naked'.

Advanced price action says...

- Indicators are a great tool to confirm price action analysis

- Indicators combined with price action can provide a higher rate of trading success

- Price action analysis with indicator confirmation provides more reliable analysis

All covered in the video below...

Lesson 4 - Identifying Trends

Basic price action says, 'the trend is your friend'.

Advanced price action says...

- Trading trends is the easiest and most profitable way to trade Forex

- Trends should be confirming through price action and indicators before trading

- Entry on a retrace move is the most logical way of following a trend
