......Yet another example of how Consolidation Breakouts with Large Candles lead to False Breakouts....another trap of the market..
EURO USD looked set to break higher with this Large Candle...
...but I expected it to at least pause before either moving sideways or reversing sharply....
This is because these Large Candles, as attractive as they are, hardly lead to successful breakouts.
Figuring this out and identifying the types of Candles that actually lead to profitable breaks was what I had to do...
I cant tell how much money was lost and time spent in spotting the right signals to trade- made a big difference in results.
Although this has taken place on the Daily Chart, these Large Candles are seen across all time frames as well. Its not so much the size in terms of Pips but relative to the other Candles on the time frame being traded. So whether you are a Day or Swing Trader, they will appear from time to time.
Once you can make this distinction, it becomes much easier to avoid these traps.
On Friday session the EURUSD pair fell for the fourth straight day and closed in the red near the low of the day on a narrow range. The currency made a stronger pullback and is trading within a daily support zone from 1.1237 down to 1.1097. A break above the 1.1237 will suggest another up run to 1.1555.
On Friday the euro recorded a fall against the dollar. The single currency depreciated for the fourth consecutive session and thus came close to the support at 1.1105.

Bulls prevailed in the early hours of the session, but then later the direction was changed and currencies hit bottom for the day at 1.1155.
