Price Action Trading Book
The “Price Action” method of trading refers to the practice of buying and selling securities based on the fluctuations, or “action,” of their prices; typically the data of these price changes is represented in easily-readable candlestick or bar charts, which are the bread and butter of the price action trader. Traditionally, price action traders rely on a “naked” chart – they reject the inclusion of indicators with the conviction that, since all supplemental indicators are necessarily lagging interpretations of the basic data available on the price chart, the action of price is itself the most reliable and accurate indicator.
The patterns of price movements reveal in real time the balance between the supply for sale and the buying demand of any given security or currency pair. Any price change implies a shift in the relationship between buyers and sellers; an increase in supply will push prices down, whereas an increase in buying demand will send prices higher.

What I’ve described above is an example of confluence. A confluence is a point/level in the market where two or more levels intersect each other (or come together) and form a flashpoint or hot point or confluent point.
When traders make trading decisions based on repeated price patterns that once formed, they indicate to the trader what direction the market is most likely to move. Price action trading uses tools like chart patterns, candlestick patterns, trendlines, price bands, market swing structures like upswings and downswings, support and resistance levels, consolidations, Fibonacci retracement levels, pivots, etc.
Generally, price action traders tend to ignore the fundamental analysis-the underlying factor that moves the markets. Why? Because they believe everything is already discounted at the market price. But there’s one thing I believe you should not ignore: major economic news announcements like the Interest Rate decisions, Non-Farm Payroll, FOMC, etc. From my own experience and from what I’ve seen, I say this “The release of economic news can be both a friend and an enemy for your trades.”
