Major support is often a combination. A level retested twice or three times could be, plus a psychological level, plus all times high or low and so on, plus fibos or sum of fibos.

Sometimes is all about, sometimes only have two or three conditions. Sometimes it's because large orders are just set close to that levels.

There is no magic recipe to detect majors. We could guess by adding elements to make a level strong to break.

Minors are weak levels, generally simple fibos, pivots, prev highs/lows and so on.

Below the price is support, above price is resistance.

If the trend is strong as in your picture it's better to wait the breakout of support. Once the support is broken you could move your stop just few pips away from that level.

Remember once a support/resistance level is broken, usually the price goes back and retest the level before to continue with established trend.

support/resistance

Hi,

Does anyone have an indicator that draws support/resistance lines, not the barry ones. For instance the indicator would be able to identify the following support lines in the chart. thank you.

For all the indicators I have, I would have to say no.

Detecting a fake break out

sonicdeejay;

Some suggestions;

I use the USD/JPY as an Indicator for the GBP/JPY carry trade. On MT4,

I shift between 5 minutes and 1 hour charts. On a 5 minute chart, you should see a Yellow Reversal histogram stick. I use Lyn V-3.

If a 3 hour chart is good for you, I see you have no UPPER Tend line. This should indicate a break out or reversal.

Any MOMENTUM indicator should reveal price direction through strength or weakness. Don't read the lines or histogram, read the Math for strength or weakness.

Also, instead of Candlesticks, you may want to use Doji's, if you can read them better. (Inside Doji)

Maybe somebody can I.D. your broker chart and have an additional suggestion.

Hope this helps.
