Welcome to the first part of trading price action patterns. 

Price Action is considered gold in the trading world. Price Action refers to the specific type of patterns formed by the candles. The price makes various highs, lows, higher highs, and lower lows to form these patterns.

In this part, we are going to learn about these three types of patterns – Broadening Tops and Bottoms, Triangles, and wedges.

BROADENING tOP's and BOTTOM's

Broadening Tops and Bottoms are general patterns where the price makes continuous lower lows and lower highs. The pattern with broader lows is known as Broadening Bottom whereas the one with broader tops is known as Broadening tops.

FEATURES OF THE PATTERN

  1. Broadening Shape with Higher Highs and Lower Lows. 
  2. Topline slopes up and the Bottom-line slopes down.
  3. At least Two Minor highs and two minor lows.
