In part 4 of “Design Your Own trading Methods”, we design a couple of setups based on what we have learned in the previous videos about the process of a swing cycle and its components. We will work with a range setup or a wash & rinse setup that has a powerful impulse and is in the pressure cooker zone or the clean air zone of a swing cycle. In the video, I show how to understand and identify the zones and the setups. Any setup needs your full understanding of it, so practice by studying hundreds of them.
This is going to be a series on simple swing trading with the objective of capturing swings that have a minimum 3:1 risk-reward. We will take what we have learned about the components of a swing and put it all together into simple swing trading. Swing trading doesn’t have to be complicated and can be quite relaxing. It’s just a solid impulse up showing intent, then a reaction pullback, then the sellers in that pullback getting swapped and showing us a possible new leg up to new highs. This kind of swing trading applies to futures, forex, or stocks in any time frame. In this video, we look at a swing trade in the GBP/USD and SBSW.
In these blogs, we have done a lot of work on mapping markets with swings. In this post, we will look at how minor swings grow up to be major swings and ways we can read and trade this dynamic. These will fall under the category of type 2 trades, expand then continue. Its a type of waiting outside the immediate price action that can be very relaxing. You can read about “The 3 Types of Trades” options on the Language of Markets home page.
To find the true structured support and resistance levels in a market, we use a contraction of price and a wash of that contraction. You can see these true levels on this 20 minute E-Mini S&P chart I posted for our members. In the video, I describe the steps to the process of a wash and rinse structure as a pivot component of a swing and how that can help us to read the true supply/demand levels.
