If traps aren't currently a part of your strategy, please take some time out to consider whether or not they should be!

  1. This is of course a great thing to look at! I was only fading trading range breakouts scaling in my position as market moves out until a specific SL, this way I am able to get the best results with the minimum risk.

    I stopped fading counter-trend moves so I could focus only on trend-side setups, but I never thought in getting into the move after the market breaks the trap bars.

    I will definitely pay special attention to this!
    Thank you, coach!

  2. hello lance ,
    can we consider that we have also here bull trap after the bearish engulfing candle ? and can we go short at the high of the bearish engulfing candle
    thanks in advance

  3. Hello lance , I have another things here , each article you post I am trying to make my own analysis first and after that read your analysis in purpose to measure my skills, and at this time I noted the long trapped trader only and not recognized the short trapped trader that you mentioned although those trader is visible , is that mean that i have problem in read and analysis the chart and i have problem to trade counter trend instead of trade with the trend . also when i review my trading journal i found many mistake like this so how can i improve my performance in this point


    1. Yes, look at this chart. Lower left to upper right. It’s a strong uptrend. Larger green bullish candles vs smaller red bearish candles. No pullbacks showing any bearish strength at all. There is absolutely NO reason to be fading this market (accepting that we’re lacking higher timeframe context by examining just the one single chart).

      The higher probability option in the event of a stronger trending move, is to ALWAYS trade in the direction of market bias.

      If you feel you see shorting opportunity easily, by all means watch for it. But don’t trade it. Watch for it to fail and then consider whether or not that offers entry opportunity with-trend. Quite often failed counter-trend moves can provide a great with-trend entry.
