What is a Fish Hook Pattern?
A Fish Hook pattern is a pattern that resembles a fishing hook. It is relatively easy to spot. There is not much to the pattern since it offers a simplistic approach to formulating a trading plan.
Is a Fish Hook Pattern Suitable for beginners?
The Fish Hook pattern is excellent for traders of all skill levels. In my opinion, the Hook offers one of the top risk/reward setups. It also provides an easy to identify entry, stop loss, and profit target. These are a couple of reasons why professional traders rank it as a favorite.
What Time Frame Works Best for Fish Hooks?
Fish Hooks work best using the daily (1 year 1 day) time frame for identification. Like any other pattern, it is essential to use multiple time frames for more precise trading. Traders should never use a single time frame in any trade.
How can a Fish Hook Pattern be Traded?
It is relatively simple to trade a Fish Hook pattern. The first thing is to let it find a bottom (support level). As the pattern finds the bottom, the candles in the daily chart will make lower highs and become smaller, indicating a possible reversal. Once it finds a support level, we can look for an entry in the first candle to make a new high. We now have an entry in the candle that made the new high with our stop loss set at the support level. Finally, we'll determine the profit target by looking for the most reasonable resistance level that the pattern offers.
