#b90x - DAY 21 - Technical Analysis 101 - Hammer & Hanging Man

b90x

#21

lesson learned: a hammer and a hanging man can signify a bullish reversal or bearish reversal, respectively

note* technical analysis is not always accurate though. Is there an average percentage of their success rate in predicting the next several sessions/overall market direction?


#22

Nope. Only time and experience can tell you that!

I’ve been so excited about getting knowlage on analysis that I forgot to post yesterday. I went on my exchange and so far have been profiting between 50 and 100 dollars on practice trades. I just write on paper my figures and buys/sells to test before I actually trade. I’m buying the hammers, selling the hangman. NOT ADVICE JUST WHAT I’M DOING. Don’t do as I do, this is for fake paper trades.

Very interesting. Question, does a Hammer have to come after a decline in price, and does a Hanging Man have to come after an increase in price, or is it just the color of them that give them their names? Say that the last three candles have been red, and the next one is a Hanging Man, is that still considered a Hanging Man, even if the candle after that is red as well?
Likewise, is this still a Hammer?
