Moving average trading in technical analysis.

The importance of analyzing a chart is in recognizing the signals and their correlation to the surrounding indicators. While we focus primarily on  indicators  made from candlestick signals,  we often increase our profits by using market trend analysis with candlestick signals combined with the  locations of the moving averages.[Refer; Major Moving Averages - The importance of candlestick signals at major moving averages]Used as technical indicators, they alert us to  important reversal points when learning how to invest in stock. Normally, moving averages are used when two or more differing averages cross. In Candlestick charting they become important support or resistance areas.

Plus, they can illustrate excellent reversal patterns, especially two of the major moving averages which are the 200 day and 50 day. Adding these two moving averages to the chart analysis produces consistent price targets and helps when first learning how to trade the japanese candlestick reversal signals.When the moving averages, the stochastics, and a candlestick reversal signal all appear at the same critical point, you have a stock investing system that puts the reversal probabilities immensely in your favor.

Each of these technical indicators are easy to learn and commom to most trading platforms. When you are trying to determine which stocks to buy, it makes sense to place as many probabilities in your favor as possible.  Allow the candlestick patterns to narrow down your trading possibilities. Further reduce your trading list by scanning support and resistance levels based upon the major moving averages. Is your list still too big? Add in the stochastics position to review potential oversold stocks, and you have yourself some winning stocks.

I know it can be very time consuming to research stocks every day before the market opens. Iíve narrowed my entire process down to 20 minutes and you can too. In my video tutorial;  ĎScanning Techniques to Higher Profitsí, I share my his personal techniques for quickly evaluating the best stock picks with the highest profit potential.

Market DirectionThe Dumpling Top, a pattern that provides an immense amount of information. It is extremely important in being able to analyze a market trend. As with all candlestick signals and patterns, there is an expected result. The Dumpling Top is the pre-cursor to a strong downtrend. This pattern occurred during the previous summer.

Dow - Summer of 2008

The development of a Dumpling Top also allows an investor to make decisions on how they plan to invest. The description of a Dumpling Top is indecisive trading with a rounded top trajectory. The Japanese Rice traders describe it as indecisive slightly positive investor sentiment followed by indecisive neutral investor sentiment followed by slightly bearish investor sentiment. Finally, the bearish sentiment starts picking up force and creates a very strong downward move.


How does an investor trade this  pattern?  It may be more beneficial to stay out of the market as long as the rounding top trajectory can be identified. The oscillations between the up days and the down days makes it relatively difficult to make a lot of money in an established position. Or an investor may have to revert to day-trading or scalping while the market remains in this slow meandering process.

The result of a Dumpling Top pattern is a strong downtrend. This should prepare an investor to establish short positions, especially near the levels where a breakdown would occur. That is what should happen at the end of this pattern. That also makes for a simple bullish evaluation. If the strength of one of the price moves is strong enough to break through the round the top trajectory, the Dumpling Top pattern becomes negated and a strong up trend can be expected. Utilizing the information built into a candlestick pattern prepares an investor to take advantage of the information built into the development of that pattern. They can also take advantage of the information that would show the pattern has been breached.

This is not difficult analysis. The probabilities are extremely high that a pattern will perform an expected result. A breach of that pattern have high probabilities of producing the opposite result. Take advantage of this information. It allows you to have your positioning established in the right direction at the right time.
