How to Swing Trade Springboard Candlestick Patterns

A Velocity Market Condition is one of the shortest of the 6 Primary Market Conditions. The reason that a Velocity Condition is so brief is because of how fast price moves, how quickly the Angle of Ascent™ goes vertical, and the speed at which volume and energy evaporate.

Velocity runs are spectacular, can earn an experienced educated trader high profits, and can be a lot of fun to trade. Velocity is strictly for Swing Trading, Momentum Trading, and Day Trading. If a stock moves with Velocity and it was a Position Trade, then the trader needs to adjust how they are trading that stock.

The chart example below enjoyed a highly profitable Velocity run following the entry signal called a Springboard Candlestick Pattern.

Nearly all Velocity runs are instigated and controlled by High Frequency Traders. The Velocity run occurs when High Frequency Traders discover Dark Pools have been buying a stock. The NEW Western Candlestick Patterns™ are the key elements in the chart example.

Over 80% of all market activity today is automated orders that trigger on specific technical or fundamental conditions. Therefore retail traders should use the NEW Western Candlestick Patterns to identify when a stock is about to move with Velocity or Momentum.One such example is the entry signal called a Springboard Candlestick Pattern.

In older Candlestick Pattern books and articles, candlesticks are used solely for reversal or continuation analysis. However in the automated markets of today candlesticks are far more reliable and should be used as the entry signal, rather than using crossover indicators which are totally outdated and lagging. The candlestick chart example shows ample indication of Dark Pool quiet accumulation in the bottom chart window. Dark Pool buying incrementally stopped the selling down, halting the downside suddenly and just above the prior low as indicated by the green arrows. 

Then the stock moved up with Professional traders and the Dark Pools "buy zone." The entry was the high of the compressing Consolidation pattern, using a bracketed order to move into the stock as it rose. This secures a buy momentum entry, then wait for the High Frequency Traders to drive price upward.

There is an indecision day prior to the gap.This was a pause in the run, and not a reversal pattern. Now with volume dropping sharply each day, the smaller funds that chased the High Frequency Traders using Volume Weighted Average Price VWAP automated orders are evaporating, warning early that profit taking is likely soon for the professional traders. Swing Traders need to plan the exit based on the Price, Volume, and Angle of Ascent.

Summary

Momentum and Velocity runs are ideal for Swing Traders, Momentum Traders, and Day Traders. Retail Traders using Technical Analysis can find many runs like the one above, after the market sells down sharply. Whenever the Angle of Descent™ is too steep with stocks running down too quickly, a reversal is highly likely with a sudden Velocity or Momentum run out of that extreme low. Learning to identify the Springboard Candlestick Pattern in the stock market of today is critical to trading success.

Trade Wisely,
