Thanks @Caseynotes. Can you please advise if the line I have drawn is the neckline.

@Nelsy-Boy,  two schools of thought on that one. Some say the neckline should be drawn horizontal while others say you should use the use the 2 points of the base of the neck and if they are at an angle so be it. Take your pick.

An important point though is that though technical analysis might sound technical it's really nothing more than a guessing game. Price does not subscribe to TA. Price will do it's own thing no matter what lines are drawn on the chart which is why technicians don't make good traders. TA is for basic reference only.

@Caseynotes thanks for your insight again and appreciate your comments on price action along with @TrendFollower. I have read a lot about these patterns becoming self fulfilling, in that so many traders recognise them and they all, on this occasion, buy the index. I have certainly tried to cut down on indicators and lines on the chart because I have put myself off from dealing due to conflicting signals. I mentioned divergence in a previous thread that you helped me with. I’ll keep learning and will put questions on the community as and when they come up.

@Nelsy-Boy & @TrendFollower,  you are right Nelsy that patterns can be weighted above indicators and that there is a degree of self fulfilling prophesy to them and that too many indicators will lead to analysis paralysis.

If you have seen any of my charts you will note I tend to stick to simple support and resistance, this is because it is one of the few indicators that is real and observable on the charts that signal boundaries. They are potential battle lines and I like to watch battles from the sidelines and be ready to get up and follow the winner as they march towards the next battle line. Keeping it simple.

    • Yes I agree Guru, giving current examples is a good way of doing it! I have been trading for over 20 years and in the last 11 years I found myself mainly trading DAX (Germany) 40, because it is the easiest and most profitable. Which market do you find easiest to trade, Guru? Does anybody else find DAX easier to trade than other markets?  I am interested in hearing other traders' experiences.
    • Source: Coingecko  Source link: https://www.coingecko.com/research/publications/2024-q1-crypto-report The cryptocurrency sector has experienced significant growth in 2024, driven by events like Lugano city's acceptance of crypto payments and the approval of the Bitcoin spot ETF. The industry's market cap reached a record high of $2.9 trillion, with $1.1 trillion added in Q1 alone. Bitcoin surged to a new peak of $73k, surpassing its previous ATH of $68k. Top centralized exchanges like Binance, Bitget, OKX, and Bybit saw substantial growth, with Bitget particularly excelling in derivative trading. Bitget's open interest exceeded OKX's and ranked closely behind Binance and Bybit. Spot trading volume surged from $29B in January to $95B in March, elevating Bitget to the top 7 spot in the spot market and maintaining the 4th position in the derivative market among major centralized exchanges. While other exchanges also witnessed significant growth, Bitget's standout performance has made it the focal point of industry attention. What are your impressions of these findings?
    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
