2.   RSI Bearish Divergence. Although the stock has made a new Higher High, RSI   did not behave the same way.

In Responsible Trading, Divergences are considered as probable turning points but never as Buy or Sell signals.  Therefore we always wait for price confirmation before we take a position.



1.   MACD on Golden Cross but histogram is decreasing. Although MACD is still on golden cross it is showing mixed signals because the histogram is decreasing indicating a possible weakening of the stock’s momentum.



1.   Positive points are things that could work in your favor. Negative points are things that you have to watch out for.

2.   On the opposite side of Pattern Targets are Pattern Failures. In case you decide to take this trade, always remember to set a stop loss based on your established risk tolerance level.
