Strategy # 1: Price Action, EMA and Trendline
(a) 1 Hour Candles
(b) 20 Period EMA
Example used: Lupin 1 Hour Charts
Step 1: Draw a trendline if feasible. You now know the breakout or break down ranges.
Step 2: Plot the 20 EMA.
Step 3: Look for bullish and bearish engulfing candles.
If price is below the 20 EMA and the trendline, then a bullish engulfing candle may not mean much (See point A marked in the chart above). But it can also signal a reversal, as you can see in point B. So you must watch out for such candles when the price is below the trendline and 20 EMA.
If price is below the 20 EMA and the trendline, then a bearish engulfing candle can signify a deeper correction. Though I have not marked it on the chart, you can view a bearish engulfing candle (3rd candle from Point A) and see that the price corrected after it formed, and that the price fell after this candle was formed.
If price is above the 20 EMA and also above the trendline, then bullish engulfing candle can be sign of a massive rise (See point C marked in the chart above).
A medium-long candle crossing above the 20 EMA is a bullish signal irrespective of the fact the price crosses above the trendline or not. Such candles need not be engulfing.
A medium-long candle crossing below the 20 EMA is a bearish signal irrespective of the fact the price crosses below the trendline or not. Such candles need not be engulfing.
