The Forex Master Pattern uses candlesticks, which provide more information than line, OHLC or area charts. For this reason, candlestick patterns are a useful tool for gauging price movements on all time frames. While there are many candlestick patterns, there is one which is particularly useful...
The Engulfing Pattern
An engulfing pattern provides an excellent trading opportunity because it can be easily spotted and the price action indicates a strong and immediate change in direction. In a downtrend, an up candle real body will completely engulf the prior down candle real body (bullish engulfing). In an uptrend a down candle real body will completely engulf the prior up candle real body (bearish engulfing).
Used in conjunction with the FOREX Master Pattern value line, the Engulfing Pattern can assist the trader with reversal timing or trend confirmation during the expansion and trend phases.
As shown in the screenshot below. Engulfing Candles usually precede a sharp move in price in the direction of the engulfing candle.
As shown in the screenshot below, when the Show Lines option is ON while using the indicator, both red and green lines are drawn on the chart automatically when engulfing candles form. These lines are projected forward 100 bars and tend to be reliable support and resistance areas. These areas are typically hidden from view.
In addition to the Show Lines option, the indicator (by default) creates boxes around trading zones that are created when an engulfing candle is formed. (There is an option to hide these from view if desired).
As seen in the screenshot below, these areas / zones are wider than a line and encompass a resistance / support zone rather than a specific price. Liquidity is usually high in these areas and a lot of selling / buying occurs here. These zones are drawn in advance out into the future giving the trader an idea of where price will revert to eventually.
A combination of LINES and AREAS can be used giving the user a better idea of where within the zone price will go.
As seen on the screenshot below, this combination provides a pretty accurate indication of the reversal point well in advance.
As seen in the screenshot below, when a ZONE / AREA has been fully breached (crossed) by price, the area is deactivated an no longer continues forward on the chart. Until price breaches an area, it remains valid and continues on the chart until and only if it is breached by price.
The Indicator is fully customizable.
The use can change the color of the engulfing candles, the color of the zones, transparency etc. You can turn OFF or ON any of the features such as lines, zones, bar coloring, and plotted arrows.
I really hope you get value from this indicator and... HAPPY TRADING!!
