The other half is only discipline and a proper money management.
So, how to identify the good areas? So you will probably need the attached indicator. It is nothing more than a small indicator that shows you where price turned in the past.
Simple, yes, but the most important thing we need to know. Because those are areas where the big guys decided to buy or sell and are likely to do so again when price comes back. Then, if you want to filter your zones, watch precisely how price left the zone: Several small candles building a base? Etc etc etc… Then backtest and see how the best zones are created.

If you are not experienced enough, trying to predict something unsure can be very painful. Experience taught me that in the end, you are less stressed with less precise entries but a better money management. Our best asset is that we know that most of the time, when price decides to turn, it will always come back to test the newly created area and pick up new orders that will help the price move faster, f or good.

Before going into Price Action or Price Analysis [PA] lets have a look at the overall process of learning how to trade successfully.
What we need to study and understand? W hat are the learning blocks? How do we approach the learning process? What is price action? It's actions of the price, how prices change, analysis of current price movement in relation to it' s history. Anything in free markets bought and sol d has built in PA. We tend to see PA much more clearer when liquidity and price volatility are highest.
Since there are none stop PA going on a price chart, what kind of PA we'd be looking for? The most important PA for us the traders, should have at l east two clear characteristics. PA contains recognizable pattern. By using PA in our trading, what we are trying to do is price analysis. In order to analyse price in a meaningful way we need to be able to recognize it in some form of pattern with a historical validity.
Never ever a loose the sight of the market we trade in. Market is a space where buying and selling takes place. Who does buying and selling. Now, we hit heart of the matter. It's all about spotting where the buyers and sellers are in different shapes and sizes. Supply and Demand zones defined by sellers and buyers. Zones that established on higher time frames, fresh and clean ones. There are additional methods I use for judging the possible strength of any good zone but these things for future.
