Closing Price Reversal

A closing price reversal is one of the easiest patterns to spot. Price makes a new high/low but gets pushed back strongly and reverses, closing beyond the previous candle’s close.

In the chart below, of the EURUSD H4 chart, I indicated all CPR’s with an arrow.

If you traded in the direction of the overall trend, you would have made some nice money, as you can see. But even when taking ALL trade setups, out of 9, 7 setups would have reached at least 1:1, following the trading and money management techniques.

Just to show you these patterns work on all timeframes, take a look at the EURUSD 5M chart.

I bet you like what you see….. If you now understand you really don't need a whole lot of fancy flashing indicators in order to make an INSANE amount of money in the market, the goal of this strategy has been reached.
