3 CHART PATTERNS

CHEAT SHEET
You already know my three favorite chart patterns and why I use them. Visit
http://dailypriceaction.com/free-forex-trading-lessons/3-forex-chart-patterns-you-
need-to-know to see them all.

But sifting through a 2,000-word lesson for actionable information can be a


challenge. Also, knowing which patterns I trade is great, but knowing how I trade
them is far more beneficial.

Well, you’re in luck because I’ve put together this cheat


sheet that will show you exactly how I trade all three price
formations including how I determine profit targets and
stop loss levels.

1 HEAD AND SHOULDERS PATTERN (AND INVERSE)

Key Characteristics
The head must be higher than both shoulders (or lower for the inverse head
and shoulders)
