To understand the technical turning point, it is important to check its connection with economics. For example, in Stock market trading, the underlying value of a company can explain the occurrence of the major turning point in the market. Likewise, in the foreign exchange market, the strength and weakness of a currency is often influenced by the fundamental value of a country. The fundamental and economic data release can cause to change the direction of the current price movement. As a result, they often become the major driving force behind the bullish and bearish turning point. Hence, to understand why an important turning point occurs in the financial market, we recommend you to look at following three cases.
- Turning point in the Stock market with “Value investing”
- Turning point in the Forex market with “Fundamental analysis”
- Pairs Trading with turning point
When you understand the driving force of the turning point in connection with economics, it helps you to follow the flow of the smart money from the investment banks and hedge funds. Besides, the price pattern can also help you to predict the turning point technically. When you apply the price pattern together with the knowledge of the fundamental driving force of the turning point, you can increase your performance marginally. Therefore, it is important to understand the price patterns used by the trading community last 100 years. We list the important price patterns for your technical analysis below.
- Horizontal support and resistance
- Diagonal support and resistance (i.e. trend lines)
- Triangles and wedge patterns
- Fibonacci analysis
- Harmonic pattern
- Elliott wave theory
- X3 Chart Pattern
To apply these price patterns better in practice, we must understand the origin of these price patterns with the scientific view. Fractal and fractal wave can explain the scientific rational behind these price patterns. Hence, we will look at how these price patterns are connected with “Fractal” and “Fractal Wave”. The scientific knowledge around these price patterns will help you to understand the flow of the financial market as said by Mark Twain “History Doesn’t Repeat, But It Often Rhymes”. In addition, you will find out that “Fractal” and “Fractal Wave” is the powerful tool to overcome the limitation of the modern trend and cycle analysis. The price patterns are in fact the practical application of “Fractal” and “Fractal Wave” in the financial market. Furthermore, we will provide the universal pattern framework to help you understand these price patterns with one unified knowledge. Therefore, we will make use of the X3 Pattern Framework while educating these price patterns.
