Reversal Trading

How to enter the trade

  • Set up a scanner to flag cryptos with five or more consecutive candlesticks going downward or upward in an extreme manner.
  • When you notice a good crypto, quickly review the volume and daily levels of support or resistance near the stock to see if it will be a good candidate for a reversal trade or not.
  • Wait for confirmation of a Bottom Reversal Strategy:
    • (1) formation of a bullish Doji or indecision candle or, instead, a very bullish
    • (2) the stock is being traded at or near a significant intraday support level, and
    • (3) the RSI must be lower than 10.
  • When the cryptocurrency makes a new 1-minute or 5-minute high, buy the stock.
  • Your stop loss must be the low of the previous red candlestick or the low of the day.
  • Your profit target is either
    • (1) the next level of support, or
    • (2) VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price) or 9 EMA or 20 EMA moving averages (whichever is closer), or
    • (3) the crypto makes a new 5-minute low, which means that the buyers are
      exhausted and the sellers are once again gaining control.


  • Set the stop loss a the low of the previous candlestick or at the loss of the support level.
  • If I jump in long, buying stock and hoping the price will go higher, and instead the price ends up just going sideways, it’s a sign that I am probably going to see a consolidation for another move down, and that is an indication that the price is probably going to continue to drop.
  • keep adjusting the stop loss as the cryptocurrency moves up.
  • Many new traders end up trading with a very poor profit-to-loss ratio because they sell their winners too soon and they hold their losers too long.
