Weekly Pivot Bounce Forex Trading Strategy

Weekly Pivot Bounce Forex Trading Strategy

You can now download the Weekly Pivot Bounce Forex Trading Strategy for free on AtoZ Markets indicators gallery.

The idea behind Weekly Pivot Bounce Forex Trading Strategy is to use the support and resistance levels as possible areas where the currency price bounce off. If the price is below the pivot point level, then look for a bounce off one of the support levels. Moreover, look for a bounce off a resistance level with the next level as the target. 

The major concern is how can we determine if the price is going to reverse or not?

To do so, the good old pin bar candlestick pattern indicator is very useful. This indicator gives excellent signals for a possible reversal. 

The fact that sentiment changed within one period of time is a strong indication that the tides have changed and the reversal could be taking place. In addition to that, wicks are an indication of price rejection. Wicks touching a support and resistance level is an indication that the market could reject price at particular support or resistance.
