Patterns repeat – again and again and again!
And in time, many of your trades will start to look similar to others.
Let’s revisit a trade from a prior article – Volatility Contraction within a Sideways Range.
And then another trade, just this last week.
There is a real benefit to post-session reviews of the trend structure.
Over time you will discover patterns such as this which seem to repeat and which seem to offer potential edge. A hypothesis worth exploring in further detail.
And potentially a trade idea to add to your toolbox alongside other trades.
For while this is not “pure” YTC PAT, it’s a slight variation on the theme. And it blends in nicely with the idea of stepping back and waiting for the better opportunity at the edges… except when the market offers something intra-range that screams out to be traded.
It came about through simple post-session reviews of trend structure. And questions – “Given the break of the sideways trend, was there any way I could have seen this earlier before the break occurred?”
Study the trend structure -> Ask questions -> Develop a hypothesis -> Test the hypothesis.
Go for it. You have work to do.
