Dear Kiran
May i request you before proceeding your thread?
Will you pl. throw some light on how to find out two bar reversal pattern? & how to trade this setup?
Thanks & regards.
Hi hmp,

These are basic candlestick patterns, and there is a lot of material available on internet including traderji itself. I myself donot remember all the names. Sorry if I disappointed you.

What I'm trying here is to catch a rally or decline at an early stage. Meet the target and exit. Now wait at sidelines for next trade. In nifty I observed Rally to decline and vice versa happens continuously. And whichever happens i.e Rally or Decline continues for a minimum of 3 days. In point terms it's minmum 200. Sometimes they may last more than 10 days/1000 points, I am not targetting them.

1. There has to be reasonable prior decline/rally
2. The decisive candle usually is of opposite color or an insidebar
3. Next day enter above the high of the decisive bar or vice versa.
4. Keep SL at the low of the decisive bar or vice versa

Stop Loss and Position sizing:
1. To define a fixed % stop loss before entering the trade
2. To take a position based on the defined Stop loss
3. To move SL higher as trade goes forward
Eg: Capital: 100000/- Stop Loss: 5%
Current Trade in progress entered at 8455, SL at 8375 means 80 points away.
No of shares====>5000/80===> 62.5 hence 2 contracts

Target 200 points, if achieved is a nice 10% return.

If the SL is at 50 points away, can take a position of 100 Shares which shall give a return of 20%.
