It’s easy to get overwhelmed when looking at all the crosscurrents in markets along with all the technical analysis that is out there. Trading does not have to be complicated, it’s a matter of using our tools to see if the buyers or sellers are in control and where that changes. We have several simple ways to map and read markets. In this post, we are going to focus on the simple swap area of a swing and use that as a framework to read and trade markets. The swap area of a swing turning up or down is a significant market structure where the balance of power changes. Learn to see it and then make observations as to how price interacts with that area. Then design ways to read and trade it.
