    The break away gap in the last graph at 7# which was tagged relatively true reversal signal is also a confirmation of change in polarity. This occurred just after the bearish engulfing pattern at #7. My question is does break away gap join in fundamental analysis of a trend in such suitation?

    -do you know how to configure a two line bollinger band insteand of three by default
    -also need to know the link to download EMA
    -I need MACD where the buy and sell signals are displayed by a curved color pattern. i was using one and now i forgot where i downloaded it. in simple terms, when the curve turns blue simply buy when the dotted lines confirm up moves and when turns red, sell when the dot red line confirm down trend

    Hi Mr.Chris (My FX Coach),

    The above article is clear to understand. But, the confirmation & continuation signals are the ones which are quite difficult (confusing) to understand. Mainly, because they are in the Middle Band region and since it is in Middle Band, it could be retesting the Middle Band or breaking away from the Middle Band, how can a novice trader consider continuation and confirmation as a trade setup? I know we can consider the close price to determine the direction. But, going back on some charts and seeing such signals – it proves to be quite a tricky setup with 50-50 chance. Are there any specific conditions/advice when continuation/confirmation signals are to be considered? How can we differentiate retesting and continuation/confirmation (such an article would be great!)

    Thank you once again Coach!

    Hello Chris.

    In certain platform (Sirix) when I asked the system to add Bollinger Bands to the chart I was presented with the option of “Field” (to construct the BB) with these choices: Open, Close, High, Low and TrueRange. Which one should I choose to have exactly the Bollinger Bands you are using to trade?

    Thanks in advance for your answer!

      Hi Antonio, You should choose the “Close”.

    Hi Chris,

    Hi Chris,

    It’s me again. You know I have got it, when I ask less questions. But at the moment, like a sponge I am absorbing your materials. I can’t believe you wrote so many articles. And they are all good and consistent.

    Referring to point 2 above on reversals.
    1. Does it matter to the strength of the setup if in the piercing line above, the upper shadow is also very long. Isn’t this a sign that the bear is also pushing price down?
    2. What if both candles with beautiful size and long shadows were out of the BB range, and none made back or crossing into the BB range? What do you make out of the strength of such a setup? Do you wait for another confirmation?
