My favorite signals for trade entries are pin bar signals, bullish and bearing engulfing patterns. These signals provide information on how buyers and sellers are reacting at certain price levels. In addition, such signals indicate to us that one side of the market is winning and at these price levels, our probability of success will be higher.
However, please do not based your entry solely on such candle stick patterns. By incorporating it with other indicators, SMA, trend line, support or resistance level, you can increase your probability of success even more.
