In downtrend, looking for a long position.
We draw trend line connecting highs in the downtrend.
Main feature of downtrend – lower lows are created as the price declines (those are marked by fractals).
Signal for buy:
New lowest low created (marked by fractal indicator1)
New low created, higher than previous low. Price failed to create new lowest low.
We place pending order for buy at the high created between last two lows.
Trend line breakout is confirmation of the signal.
We place stop loss at lowest low. Distance between LL and position entry will be also our profit target.
