32. Market Moving Average (MA) Fail Pattern


32. Market Moving Average (MA) Fail Pattern

A FAIL is when the market moves above or below the 15 Moving Average and FAILS back the other way -


The FAIL is is also how Trading Cycle (TC) Lows happen.

All Trading Cycle (TC) Lows happen below the 15 period Moving Average. This concept also sets up a FAIL Model to buy these lows. 

The FAIL was named in our trade room. We had to come up with a name, and it just hit us; it seems like the market wanted to start trading below the MA, which means trend down at the moment, but FAILED and came back up above the MA to typically create a TC LOW (Not always). But enough times to develop a trade model around it so our traders would recognize the model and know how to trade it when it did happen.
