Setups With My Forex 
Trading Strategy
Price action allows you to take many different types of trades, reversals,
 continuations, range, swing, breakout and scalp trades to name a few.
In my free Forex trading strategy I will focus on one type of setup, the 
easiest to spot and trade, reversal.

How to Spot a Reversal Trade
Reversals occur quite often, but if you do not know what to look for, you cannot
 trade them.
Reversals are one of the strongest price action setups, and one of the easiest
 to trade. And because they occur so often, you can trade this setup exclusively 
and be a profitable trader.
In fact, for years Forex trading strategy focussed on reversals only. However, 
these days I trade more price action setups.
Reversal trades come in three parts:
The preceding trend.
The Indecision candle(s).
The reversal trend.
Let’s break down each of these parts.
The Preceding Trend
A preceding trend is a strong move by the bears/bulls heading into an area of support/resistance.

In the example above, the preceding trend is a very strong bearish move, indicating that 
there are a lot of bears in the market and very few bulls. If bulls were strong then price 
would not be trending down.
The preceding trend shows us that bears (sellers) have strong control of price and they
 are pushing price down into a support area.
The opposite applies for a bullish preceding trend which would show bulls (buyers) trending 
towards resistance, as you see below.

A preceding trend can be formed by as little as one candle. If the candle is strong and covers
 a lot of price distance, I categorise it as a preceding trend for the purposes of reversal trading.
The example below shows a single candle preceding tend.

Preceding trends are pretty simple. As long as you see a strong move heading into an area
 of support or resistance, you can consider it a preceding trend.
The Indecision Candle(s)
A reversal setup will have one to three indecision candles. The indecision candles need to 
form on or near to the support and resistance area.

If indecision does not form on or near to the area of support and resistance, it is not a valid 
reversal setup.

Why does it need to be on a support and resistance area?
An indecision candle in a bullish preceding trend indicates that buyers are possibly losing 
control, and sellers may be gaining control. In a bearish preceding trend it indicates that sellers
 are losing control and buyers may be gaining control.
However, an indecision candle does not indicate that price will reverse with any degree of certainty.
An indecision candle indicates only one thing.
You cannot take a trade based solely on indecision. The image below shows indecision forming
 between support and resistance. If you were to enter reversal trades based solely on indecision, 
it wouldn’t work out too well.

What about when a bullish preceding trend heads into an area of resistance (sell area) or a bearish 
trend into support (buy area) and indecision forms?
Well, then we get the makings of a high probability reversal setup.
But we cannot enter just yet, we need confirmation, which comes in at part three of a reversal setup.
The Reversal Trend
The reversal trend is the third and most important part of a reversal setup. This is where we make our profit!
After a preceding trend stalls at support, and indecision forms, you often see a reversal trend. The image
 below shows a bearish reversal trend forming after indecision on resistance.

In this case we saw a transition of power from a bullish preceding trend to a bearish reversal trend
 separated by a stall on resistance.
Where do you enter the trade though? Let’s discuss that in the next chapter.
