    Look at the above picture. You might have seen this pattern many times.

    Market is in a bull trend. It pull backs and makes a low at point A. Afterwards it goes up and later returns to the same price level and print a beautiful pin bar.

    As a trader what will be your action in this area?

    Some possibilities are
    1.You will keep a stop loss order just below point A if you are holding long position
    2.You will sell just below point A expecting a breakout to the down side
    3.You will go long above the pin bar with a stop loss below the candle

    Will you buy at the circled area? Who bought there? Who absorbed both stop loss selling and breakout selling? Why?

    Heavy volume coming in at the pinbar indicates smart money coming in/ or already existing orders. This drives the prices up.

    You are spot on, Ashwani.

    Usual answer is that "Smart money is buying " But Why ?
    So far I have not seen any system or traders recommending to buy at the marked area. But somebody is buying . Who ? What is their game plan ?

    Of course you can draw many MA, EMA, Fibs, Trend lines. Gann lines, some wave counts etc and put the blame on them. But that is only an excuse

    Angels rush in where Fools fear to tread.

    Smart money is coming in because..of the same reason you or i trade, to make profits.

    This is how most trends work. The counter trend you see is nothing but absorbing the Supply/Demand , only to push the prices higher or lower..

    A bottom shown in this chart can mechanically be identified by DeMark Combo. Precise mechanical counting and identification of exact bottom. Try it out.
