A trend doesn't last forever and it transitions into either a trend in the opposite direction or into a trading range. When a trend reaches some critical magnet, it stalls and starts to pullback. If the pullback extends too far, traders do not know if the trend will resume or if the market will reverse and then trend in the opposite direction. Because the market often goes very far after a reversal takes place and the protective stop can be very small, the risk reward ratio is excellent and this keeps traders looking for them constantly. There are many types of reversals and each has specific characteristics that traders can use in their trading. There are several other important topics that need to be discussed and they are included in this volume. Price action analysis works on all time frames but there are different techniques that traders can use in trading intraday, daily, weekly and monthly charts. For example, a day trader can use an always in approach where he is in the market all day long, switching to long or short depending on the price action. Many markets now trade on the Globex almost 24 hours a day and the Forex is also a 24 hour market. Both provide trading opportunities. The first hour of the day session of every market provides some of the best trading of the day if you understand how to handle the volatility and why the sharp reversals are taking place. Options are also great tools for trading 60 minute and daily charts because they contain your risk on overnight positions. Even though there are countless setups some are better than others and these are discussed in the chapter on the best trades. The book ends with many general guidelines that will help traders handle the emotions that come while trading.
