Buy low sell high is the most common advice in terms of strategy to be applied in real-time markets. But well all know from experience that it is not so easy. Many have tried to simplify and failed miserably. While it is not easy to just buy low and sell high, you can do it with measurable consistency if you know when to apply this strategy. And following Wyckoff strategies and techniques will help you do that…
This is a simple Wyckoff strategy but applied at wrong times in the markets can lead to haywire results. Traders often end up blaming the strategy, the method or the tool they are using, but they failed to realize that their behaviour towards markets need to change to achieve consistent success.
So if you buy near a supp[ort and instead of bouncing the markets just keep falling below the support your strategy to buy low will fail miserably. Same thing will happen near a resistance if you are planning to short the markets.
So to be able to apply this strategy successfully you need to identify which Wyckoff Market Cycle Phase is most appropriate for it. Once you understand it you will be able to choose the correct strategy at the correct time.
There are other strategies too…
This one is probably the most popular amongst retail traders and so much so that the opposite of this strategy has also become popular. Failed breakout or breakdown strategy.
When the markets choose to breakout from a resistance and when the breakout fails cant be said with certainty unless you have deeper market understanding. But once you understand what causes breakouts and what causes them to fail, you will be able to exploit these opportunities.
Lastly there is this wyckoff strategy…
This one is favourite of the trend trading community, so much so that they treat every dio as a buying opportunity and every rise as a selling opportunity. The operative word here is “trend”… Unless there is a strong trend in the markets you wont be able to apply this strategy fruitfully.
The next obvious question is how to identify a trend, well in this lesson and in the market profile section of this course we have covered precise methods to identify whether there is a directional bias aka trend in the markets.
And which references you can use ideally to place you pullback trades.
