1. Introduction: Hello and welcome to this lesson, stock chart, trend lines and price patterns in this class, I'm going show you exactly how to form stock chart analysis. Like a professional, you will learn how to draw trend lines to determine a stock's direction. You will learn how to use those trend lines to make forecasts and establish rules for buy and sell decisions. You will also learn about stock price patterns, which will help you understand if the stock price will continue in its current trend or will change trend. My name is Barrymore, a certified financial technical analyst, market researcher and founder of liberated stock trader.com, a company that has trained thousands of people in investing and trading so they can make better investing decisions. But enough about me. Let's talk about you and this class. After taking this class, you'll be able to confidently interpret a stock chart and be able to make buy and sell decisions based on technical analysis, you will understand concepts like patterns, trends, gaps, wedges, and megaphones. Interested, let's get started. 3. Using Trendlines For Buy Sell Decisions: Using trend lines to make buy and sell decisions. So we have seen the sideways channel and the W bottom or the double bottom. But how do we know when a stock is going to take off? The truth is, we never really know. All we can do is make judgments based on what we see. Here is a quick tip. When price moves down through a trend line, this can be seen as a sell signal. When it breaks up through a trend line, this can be seen as a buy signal. Here we have a list of the typical scenarios we are presented with every day while striking trend lines allow us to see when a change of trend is occurring. Be it from an uptrend to a sideways consolidation or a sideways consolidation to a downtrend or an uptrend to a downtrend or a downtrend to an uptrend. So let's go through each of the scenarios to see where the buy and sell signals would be generated. So in figure one, this shows us when to buy on the break of a trend line. Here price breaks up through the horizontal trend line known as resistance. The price comes here, bounces off, resistance, moves back down and then breaks here. And it's exactly here. That would be the bicycle and the stock moves on. Opioids. Figure 2 shows price in a downtrend. Finally, the price breaks upwards through the resistance line, potentially a buy signal. So you can see price is moving down here and suddenly out of character, it breaks up through its resistance line. In figure 3, we see a price break down through the horizontal trend line, the support. If you already own the stock, it would definitely be a sell signal. Stock is moving down, it moves up and then it breaks through its support line. Sell signal is right here. In figure for the price is in an uptrend and the lower trendline support is broken, generating a sell signal, prices moving up here, and then it breaks down through its support line. Hey, would be potentially a sell signal. What we're trying to get at here is capital preservation. Now the stock might move down any slightly and then start moving up again. And there's no reason why you shouldn't reply it back here. However, we need to preserve our capital and a change of trend, a clear change of trend is definitely a change of character. And there may be things happening in the news or many things that are happening that you are not aware of. But all of these factors will be reflected in price. So this is why price and trend lines. So in Pune because the truth is inevitably reflected in the stock price. Whether you know what that truth is or not. In Figure 5, we see a stock moving within a defined trading range. Those who'd like to trade channels would buy on a failed break of the lower trend line to support and sell on a failed break through the resistance line. So stock is moving in this direction. If it's been doing that for a long time, the chances are you would continue in this sideways trend. So people who like to do this may well, by hair as the stock just begins to start moving up again after touching the support line and potentially sell here. Of course, if you buy here and the stock continues up and break through the sport, then you've max, maximise your profit here. And if it starts to turn down again, then it's a good time to sell. And many people just buy and sell the trading range down. By here, it moves up. You sell it there, it moves down, you buy here. And E by here. And if it goes up and break through the support line, then you maximize your profit. To recap. On figure 6. This is similar to the previous example. However, the stock is in an uptrend CC, the stock trending upwards. And people who would like to buy the uptrend channel could also buy as the stock price moves down to touch on pon resistance and sell it as it hits the top of its resistance, they're buying at the bottom of the channel, selling at the top of the channel. This gives you a summary of how to use trend lines for buy and sell signals. Whether the trend is up, down or sideways. I strongly encourage you now to open up your charting package and start drawing trend lines and practicing. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. I remember when I learned to draw trend lines, did take many, many, many hours of doing it until it finally sunk him. So now we understand how useful trend lines are and how to draw them. We can look at price patterns. 4. Reversal Continuation Price Patterns: Price patterns, supply and demand is depicted in charge. But what you see and how you interpret requires training and practice. Price patterns fall into two groups. Reversal patterns, which indicate an increased probability of price direction change. And continuation patterns, which indicate that the price movement will continue in the same direction. The famous Head and Shoulders reversal pattern. Here we discussed the famous Head and Shoulders price pattern, understood to be one of the most predictive and reliable of patterns. The Head and Shoulders pattern has some unique characteristics. However, you need to know what you are looking for a head and shoulders price pattern has the following traits. Two shoulders. You can see them here. This is one shoulder, the left shoulder, a high point, which is the head, and the right shoulder. So you can see it looks like a shoulders, a head, and a right shoulder. But what most people forget or never even learned is the volume should confirm the pattern. Now we'll look at volume in much more detail. But the volume is essentially count of numbers, the number of shares traded for that stock, for that price period. So here you can see on the left shoulder we should see increasing volume. For the head, we should see a decrease in volume. And for the right shoulder also a decrease in volume. There's also something known as the neck line. And this is the neck line here. The neck line joins essentially the low points either side of the head together. And this is essentially a support line that we would draw through the pattern. So the full move of a Head and Shoulders pattern would be the move up here to a top and move down, then another move up on reducing volume, and then move back down. And this basically confirms the neck line. And the confirmation then of the full Head and Shoulders pattern would be a move up, but not no ability to break and make a new high that forms the right shoulder. And then on decreasing volume, the price pattern moves down, dies how a Head and Shoulders should look. In a Head and Shoulders pattern. The head is always higher than both of the shoulders. The neck line, to recap, connects the low points after the left shoulder and after the head. And the first shoulder should be on increasing volume. And the second shoulder should be on significantly decreasing volume. And the right shoulder can be also on decreasing volume. Was interesting to note here and we'll learn a lot about this when we look at the volume indicator, is that right here we see two huge volume bursts, right there. Are you being much higher than historically and right here again. And what we see here, and what we see here, big bus in volume often dictate a change in trend. And you can see this, this volume bust here. Okay, so I did exactly with the change in trend, the price was moving down and then it started to move up again. But what we see here is the second volume burst occurred right at the top of the shoulder, which indicated another change in trend. And then the stock price proceeds and move down. Confirmed the Head and Shoulders pattern and break out downwards on on lower volume. And when it breaks the neck line, if you see increased volume, then that's even more of a bearish coal. There's also an opposite price pan to this called the head and shoulders bottom. So this is the head and shoulders top. And the head and shoulders bottom would look very similar like this, with a low point and then another high point and a breakout in this direction. And you could draw the neck line across here again and follow that breakout As called Head and Shoulders bottom or reverse Head and Shoulders pattern reversal patents, quick reference. This chart shows us the most common reversal patterns and then relative probability of accuracy. I create this chart from all the patterns that I have seen and plotted them essentially on a Chao. This left bar here shows us the probability of accuracy and also from low to high, and also the probability of accuracy is also plotted. Here. You understand the reason why in a moment. So what we have here is many different patterns. Price patterns and trend lines share the same characteristics. The longer they are, the more important they are, the more price patent touches a trend line and reverses, the more important that line is. In this chart, we see the accuracy of a triple top is more than that of the single top. Why? Because price touches the resistance level more times. For example, here, in the low probability of accuracy, we have a single bottom, which is essentially a single bounce. And here if you had your support line, the probability of that holding would be very slim. Indeed, the price would probably continue in a downtrend and a single top price is moving up. Let's say you would draw a line here that wouldn't really be a trend line as it's a single bound. So single tops are still fairly rare. And that trend line would have a lower probability of accuracy. But as we move up the scale here you can see we have a double bottom. So the probability of accuracy improved that we see as you saw an example earlier, we saw a double bottom, two bounces and then a reversal, a double bottom. And we have exactly the same as a double top, but a similar probability of accuracy of that trend line. Holding here. Now the higher probability of accuracy, the highest we have is potentially a triple bottom. This is also quite common when the price is moving down. For example, hits once heads, twice, hits again, and then reverses. And we saw that a very long period of time with the Apple example. And we have a higher probability of the triple top because there are three touches, 123 and the mode touches the more accurate the price pan and the trend line you draw on that price Pam will be there is a small difference between a triple bottom and a head and shoulders button for example. And here we can see it is a high probability of accuracy for this. We have the head and shoulders, bottoms are described earlier. Bouncing ones living down, even Mila moving up, failing to make a new high forming the neck line and then breaking through that neck line higher. We also see that with the head and shoulders top leaving higher, forming a new high, coming down, forming the shoulder, living up again, failing to make a new high, and then breaking down through the neck line, going lower. Now the highest probability of accuracy for stock chart patterns. You may have heard of these before. And this is why they're in the high, high region of this chart are the salsa and the rounded Bach, or the rounded bottom. And here you can see much more of a rounded reversal here. And that's why it's called a salsa or rounded bottom. You can see here that the stock price is slowly moving around the society of stability. And we have 12345678910 touches of the saucer. And the longer the sorceries and the more touches, the more significant the move upwards should normally be. So that gives you a higher probability of success or accuracy. And supposedly the most accurate of all. And this is why people talk about it quite a lot, is the cup and handle. And he exists cool cup and handled because it represents a cup with a handle, for example. And you can see here many touches of the cup. Here. There's a move up. Move down again, retraces some ways gain and then slowly breaks our above the trend line. And guys higher, this has one of the highest probabilities of accuracy in sharp Paxton's. So the one thing to remember here, the more touches of a trend line, the most significant the pattern is. And the longer the trend line is, more time is in existence, the stronger that trend line is and therefore a break that trend line should have essentially more power in their continuation patterns. Continuation patterns occur during a price move and are visual representations of consolidation or periods of rest before price continues in its trend, be that upwards or downwards. This graphic, you can see the continuation patterns and these are known as the triangles. All of these triangles are essentially continuation patterns. They should give you some confidence that the trend will continue. However, should the price break out in the wrong direction due to a shock that say bad earnings or bad news, then at least you're already prepared to act. So let's take a look at this. You can see here this is called a flag due to the fact that you have a flag pole and the flag itself. So what happens here is the price moves up, it's time for a rest, and a consolidates and moves in a slow downward direction in the sideways pattern here. And you can see it moving here. And here you'd be ready to see if it actually breaks down through the bottom of this lag. Meaning is not actually a flag would mean then this is a turnaround, a reversal. Or you would plot here the support line, the resistance line, and the support line here. And if it breaks out going north and it's a continuation pan, the time to buy would be right here. Here we have what's known as a pennant. Is similar to a flag, except the bottom of the panel is horizontal here. And the top is a, moving from left to right, downwards, descending. And the price is moving up. And we have normally three or four touches of each side of the flag and the case for all the flag patterns. So you'd see 1234 and then five as a breakout. Of course, as we've already drawn these trend lines as this is forming, you'd be very prepared in case the price broke down through the pennant. Also the same with an ascending triangle, you see the price moving up, Hey, you would have three or four bounces of the NSA side of the triangle and then a continuation bright towel. A symmetrical triangle is here. You can see this. It's called a symmetrical triangle because the top is pointing down and the bottom of the triangle is pointing upwards. It's symmetrical in this direction. And then you can see price moving up, bouncing of the inside here, and then breaking out upwards again. All of these patterns apply in the opposite direction also. And you need to see a descending triangles, ABC stock price moving down, bouncing inside the triangle. And you have a horizontal button of the descending triangle, and then the price breaking out self woods. In all of these examples, the direction of the trend is continued. And that's exactly what a continuation pattern is. Going into the pandas trend is up and then it continues up, up, continuing up, up and continuing up and here, down and continuing down. Another very common continuation pattern is the rectangle, or more commonly known as the channel or the trading range. And we've already discussed this in quite some detail. And you can see here with this channel, the price should normally break out in the direction of the previous trend. So you can see here price moves up, starts consolidating here, you draw your trend lines here. The resistance and the support. Of course, you would be very wary if the price did break down through this. But the expectation will, the probabilities are that it should continue in that direction. However, probabilities are one thing, but then not 100% trues. This is why price is very important. If the, if the price did break down through this channel, then you would be out of the stock. If it broke up, you would continue to hold a if you were holding it through the sideways consolidation or if you're looking to get into the stock, then as it broke out, you could buy here. The same is for a sideways channel where the trend moves down, starts forming a channel, exactly the same process. The expectation is that it should break out in a downwards pan. Of course, if it doesn't and it starts breaking up, which then you can see here this could be potentially a triple bottom, not necessarily a channel if it came down bounds once, twice, three times, and then broke upwards in this direction as essentially a triple bottom no sideways channel. So it's important to always be wary. Plenty trend lines and these give you your contingency plans as what most people don't realize that you can't rely blindly on the trend lines, all the price patterns, they enable you to envisage and formed your contingency plans, ready for action. 5. Gap Patterns in Stock Charts: All aboard mind the gap. Another pattern that signals continuation is the gap. A gap occurs when the price of a stock during a given period is significantly higher or lower than the price range of that stock for the previous period. The price did not overlap at all over the two periods. This leaves what is known as a gap in the price jar. A gap up in the stock price is a show of strength that tells us the demand for the stock was so strong on the Open that it jumped many points higher. So let's take a look at a gap. The gap means essentially, here you can see stock price moving up normally. The price open, the high, the clothes. And here you can see the open and then the high and the clothes. But here you see a gap. And this is essentially saying that the stock price close was here. And then the stock aggressively the next day opened much higher than a closed the previous day. And the stock did not move down to meet the previous close price. This essentially leaves a gap in the price parent and you see them quite regularly. So what we're saying is a gap up is a significant showed strength and the gap down is a significant show of weakness. Gaps usually occur because of a significant show of aggressive buying or selling. So gaps are an important pattern or technical indicator to look out for. So let's review the different types of gap that exist. First of all, we have the breakaway gap. The breakaway gap usually occurs when a stock is moving in a normal way through a price range or channel, then the demand for the stock suddenly explodes and the stop gaps out of the current trend. This is a sign of strength and a very bullish sign with a gap of a breakaway gap to the downside, of course, is a sure sign of weakness. So here we can draw a trend line here, stock is proceeding in a sideways pattern, and then suddenly the stock breaks out of this sideways consolidation upwards. That's a very strong show of strength. And you can see that here this is fairly common. I've seen a fair number of this whole process of gaps. The continuation gap. The continuation gap is another sign of strength, showing that demand is still strong and the trend will continue. This often confirms the initial breakaway gap. So first we see the breakaway gap. Price continues moving up and then we see a continuation gap. This is a sure sign that is still a lot of underlying strength in the stocks move. So this is called a continuation gap as the stock price continues upwards. Now usually in a pattern like this, we would see a third gap or a fourth gap. These are commonly known as the exhaustion gap. The exhaustion gap can be the second or third gap and occurs during a very strong surge in price. This is warning as it might signify that the stock is overextended itself and maybe do for change in trend or pull back. The opposite is true for an exhaustion gap on the downside, which might signal a bottom is near. So here you can see we have the first gap, the continuation gap. And here we see an exhaustion gap, and we are also see another gap here. However, this exhaustion gap is signaling that may be nearing a top. Now in this example, I've included a reference for another type of gap called the island reversal gap. And here you can see that this is called an island reversal gap. For example, if you have an exhaustion gap here, the price drops then immediately after, as signified might happen by the exhaustion gap, starts moving down and then we see another negative gap here. Essentially what we see forming is an island. Here we'll by itself one gap to the left, bone gap to the right. This is a fairly solid signal that the stock has topped and it's making a significant reversal. The island gap, this occurs when demand is so high that the market participants drive the price up to unacceptable levels and the demand dries up rapidly. This sudden oversupply causes the stock to plummet as old demand is satiated. Of course, too much supply with no demand causes falling prices. I would also like to highlight this quick tip here. Gaps are important signs of serious shifts in supply and demand. If searches in demand outstrips the supply, prices rise to convince people on the sidelines to sell. Downside gaps indicate supply outstripping demand, causing prices to fall. This might seem all very theoretical. So here are gaps in action. Here is a stock up in followings, and you can see it's made absolutely thunderous progress in terms of its price pan, rising from $5 the way up to $42 and then dropping back down to $11, which caused quite a significant shock in the market and the few legal cases, let's have a look at this beautiful example of gaps in stock price. So first of all, here, the stock price is moving along and you can see a trend, sideways consolidation here. So more the price moves up and gaps significantly higher. This is the breakaway gap. And you can see here, the breakaway gap is the sign that there is significant strength in the stock. Happens, stock moves sideways, catching his breath. Because in this short period and less than a month, the stock was already doubled in price through this gap. So it goes sideways some more. And then we can see here the trend is falling here and then an another explosion, a huge continuation gap. And you can see that gap straight through the middle where the stock continues up very strongly, forming trend lines here and here. And what do we see next? A gap, another gap, but not as virulent as the previous gap. This could be considered an exhaustion gap. But only time will tell if it's an exhaustion gap or another continuation gap, for example. So the stock price moves up, but then starts to stool so more drops down. And if you were to plot a longer-term trend line, hey, you could, you could plot all of these pretty accurately, exactly there. So the price starts to move back down, touches upon the trend line that we've drawn, but then starts to move slowly up again, but without the initial rigor that it had previously makes a top, comes down to the trend line, makes another top. No new high. Very important to note, no new highs been made here there was a double top. And then what happens? Not only does the price move through the support line, but gaps through it. And you can see this gap right here is pretty small, but you can see that is a breakaway gap, for example. Then the price loses all strength and starts plummeting southwards. And we can map that here with a resistance line following the stock downwards. And then we see here, yeah, again, a huge gap. This could be construed as a and exhaustion gap is one huge gap. If you'd held the stock. At this point, of course, we wouldn't have held the stock because the stocks in a downtrend, we've seen the initial breakaway gap. We wouldn't own the stock right now. I certainly wouldn't recommend earning the stock because it's in a clear downtrend. We can see that right here. But there's some people prefer to hold on to stocks even though they're going down. However, this is not what we will be doing in the future. We will be very cutthroat about when we buy, when we sell emotionless. So as the stock is moving down, you see here a horrific exhaustion gap. So if you own the stock, right at this time here at $22 and you went to bed that night, woke up in the morning, logged on, check your account, wave for the market to open. Suddenly, you would have lost from $22 down to $14. You could have lost circa $8, which is a huge amount. We're talking 30, 40% of the value of that stock overnight. Nazi Hong Kong gaps are, this was clearly absolutely clearly panic selling. And panic selling like this usually generate from extremely bad news in the marketplace. Specifically for this stock mass, what exactly happened? So the bad news came and the cap down. We already knew this was happening because the breakaway gap that tells hell signal was there, perhaps people in the know within the company, within that industry so that this price was unsustainable. They saw that there were other issues which would prevent this stock from increasing anymore. Inside is in the company we were and stop, start to sell. People get wind insiders get when they start to sell. But Joe Schmo continues to hold that stock. You and I would not we would have seen this, we'd be out of the stock. Then suddenly the general public see that the news has been released on Bloomberg or wherever else, that the accounts have been overstated or their market dominance has been overstay it, or they've missed their earnings. And suddenly there is a huge and violent gap down as every Tom, Dick, and Harry is trying to count the stock at the same time. This is not where you or I want to be with our stock trading. So we see the signs early. We hold like grudges and morale of the stock. Then we've seen the breakaway gap, the exhaustion gap. And then we say the stock started to bottom out here, forming a very slow downtrend and perhaps some sideways consolidation. This is a really nice example of how gaps are important indicators and patterns in stock charts. 6. Wedges Megaphone Price Patterns: Megaphones and wedges. Here we have a megaphone top. This is rare pattern that occurs occasionally. At major tops. You can see that the swings get larger at each pounds, suggesting uncertainty and volatility until finally the price breaks out downwards on increased volume. So here we can see the price is moving upwards and then we have one bands to balanced rebounds for bounces, a final balance for the top, and then the price breaks out downwards. This is a strange triangle pan and it's cool. The megaphone as wire has a separate name because it's instead of a continuation, Pam is typically a reversal pans seen at major tops. Also, here we have what's known as wedges. Now, which is a kind of similar to triangles in, in terms of the way they look, but they're kinda difficult to remember. So I'm going to run you through these piece-by-piece so we can see exactly how this works. So we have what's known as falling wages and rising wedges. So if you start to draw a triangle and you start to understand that this is a wedge, then be careful. So what happens here is the direction of the wedge dictates that the price will break out in the opposite direction to the wedge. So here we have the price moving up and then it starts to consolidate sideways and downwards. And you can see here, the direction of the wedge is that both sides are pointing downwards. And the expectation here, of course, is that the price will then break out outputs. That's a continuation wedge of falling wedge in an uptrend. However, we have a falling wedge in a downtrend, and this is actually a reversal pattern. So both of the minds, the sides of the wedge pointing down, yet price breaks upwards. Well, there were entered into the pattern downwards. So you can see a falling wedge is both a continuation pattern or a reversal pan. So the easiest way to remember this is whatever way the wedge is pointing, price is expected to break out in the opposite direction to the waypoints. Took me a long time to be able to remember that simple piece of advice. The same for the rising wedge. Here we can see a rising wedge. This means both sides of the wedge are pointing upwards. And here we can see that price enters the wedge upwards, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 bounces and then breaks out downwards, the opposite direction to the way the wedge is pointing. And the same for the rising wedge. This is then a continuation pattern, the rising wedge. And you can see the same simple rule applies. Price enters into the wedge pan in a downward manner, bounces three or four or five times. And you can see the wedge is rising both sides of the arising and price breaks out in the opposite direction to the way the wedge is pointing. If you can remember that when you see a wedge, the price of breakout in the opposite direction, then that's all you need to know to remember wedges. Summary. So much information. How do we remember it all? For now, it's most important that you remember the reverse or patterns as they will be the ones which potentially alert you to protect your profit or to move out of a bad trade. With time, you will start to see more and more of these patterns in a chart. Also, remember, prices do not bounce off a trend line just because you drew it, the trend line simply marks an important price levels. In the minds of the market participants. Perhaps a majority of people see value in the support area. And many people feel the stock is overpriced in the resistance area. If price breaks through a resistance area, this suggests that something has changed in the environment to alter the opinions of the market participants. You cannot possibly know all the reasons why stocks move on a short-term or medium-term basis. But what we can do is see what happens and assume that something significant has happened.
