What is Trend Bar?

Trend Bar story shows that traders are “committed” to going in a certain direction. In a matched transaction, the number of buyers and sellers is completely equal. For the price to increase, the buyer’s psychology must be stronger, wanting to buy more than the seller. The opposite is also true.

Trend Bar must have a real body greater than 50% of the full length of the candle.

The idea of the Trend Bar Failure strategy

In an uptrend, bearish Trend Bar candlesticks represent contrarian traders attempting to reverse the trend. So when these traders fail to reverse the trend (which usually fails because the trend is always more likely to continue than to reverse), the trend will continue. Thus, the bearish Trend Bars in an uptrend will have a high probability of failure. We will take advantage of these failed Trend Bars to enter trades when the trend continues.

Contrarian traders support our strategy. Because when they realize they were wrong, they would exit and enter new bullish orders, plus other bullish ones from current trending traders, which will make the price go up.

How to trade the Trend Bar Failure strategy

We will enter an order when a reversal Trend Bar fails, that is when the main trend is continued.

If a Trend Bar does not appear after a previous Trend Bar, we will prepare for the appearance of a Trend Bar Failure.

Rules for entering a bullish order:

1. The EMA 20 is pointing up or the current trend is bullish

2. Bearish Trend Bar appears

3. The bottom of this bearish Trend Bar has been breached but the price does not form the next bearish Trend Bar

4. Place a bullish order above the top of the current candle

5. Cancel the order if it is not triggered in the next candle

Rules for entering a bearish order:

1. The EMA 20 is pointing down or the current trend is bearish

2. Bullish Trend Bar appears

3. The top of this bullish Trend Bar is broken but the price doesn’t form the next bullish Trend Bar

4. Place a bearish order below the bottom of the current candle

5. Cancel the order if it is not triggered in the next candle

1. A strong bearish Trend Bar appeared and following it was a small candle breaking the bottom of the Trend Bar. But it is not a bearish Trend Bar. This is a nice setup of the Trend Bar Failure strategy.

2. The bearish Trend Bar moved near the EMA and could not go deeper. The bottom of the Trend Bar was not broken by the candle after it. And this candle was a bullish Trend Bar so it does not satisfy the trading rules. We shouldn’t open an order when encountering this situation.

3. A bearish Trend Bar appeared and the next candle, which is not a trend bar, broke its bottom. A bullish order could be placed at the top of this candle. The order was activated immediately on the next candle and gave a very good profit

Remember, we will CANCEL if the order is not triggered IMMEDIATELY at the next candle.

Because the most beautiful trades usually give immediate results. The longer you wait, the less effective the trading setup will be. We will cancel orders to eliminate the risk of bad orders. Only use your money for good ones.
