    Hello Chris!

    I enjoy how you break the trade down to understandable English.
    It is beginning to make a lot more sense.

    Thank You…


    • Hello Hugo,

      But glad you found it useful and clear.

    Another genius piece from Capre.
    Quite intriguing and definitely the differential sizes of the pullbacks after a dips is genius and something that I will want to learn further.

    • Hello Chris,

      Yes, when you start to see the different sizes of pullbacks, you are spotting changes and transitions in order flow.

      Kind Regards,

    Great Video as usual Chris !
    Could we say that the F Candle can be considered as a Climax or Exhaustion Candle?

    • Hello Greggy,

      A climax candle is on tops, but it could possibly be exhaustion – definitely a spike for sure.

      Kind Regards,

    Chris on the 15 min GU has beautiful pp breakout and the 20 ema carry.. hence your explanation of the lower lows being created on the 5 min which is represented by the 20 ema carry on the 15. This video helps me to make a with clear distinction between accumulation or down side pressure. Thank you!

    • Hello Jewell,

      Yes, was hoping to illustrate the differences between downside pressure and accumulation.

    Thank you

    • Hello Jamocool,

      Glad you enjoyed this price action analysis.

  • Jason

    Awesome video Chris! This helps me pin point what one of my problems is, I put too much focus on 1 or 2 bars, instead of a series of bars and price action. With little golden nuggets like this in my tool box I know I will have better and better trades.

    • Hello Jason,

      Glad you liked the video. Yes, focusing on 1-2 bars misses the point of trading, which is about price action and context.

      So if you can learn this tool, then it will really help your trading.

  • Haji

    Hello chris,
    Another new thing to know of when reading price action. something to add in anticipation of price reversal. the arrival of the price changes. meaning the same goes for larger time frame as well chris ? the same number of pips with less candle before the reverse.

    • Hello Haji,

      Yes, the model is the same regardless of the time frame. But am glad you enjoyed this tool for finding key reversals via the price action and order flow.

      Kind Regards,

    surely you cannot tell that price is going to drop simply because there are more candles in D to E than B to C?… mention your s bar strategy in the article about gmt or new york close…..i was considering going for the price action course when i’ve got through all the free stuff because you have “rule based systems”…..however, to be frank the candle groupings you have marked a to b and then d to e tell me nothing and if this is part of a rule based system its driven me almost to the point of putting me off taking the course…..i’m willing to be converted though…..

    • Hello Tony,

      First off, it seems like there is some confusion about the main points in this video, which is to use the overall context to give you an idea of a possible trend change, via understanding the order flow behind the price action. When you learn to read transitions in the price action, you can learn to spot times when it is more likely to reverse, or more likely to continue.

      What is in this video is not a rule based system from our courses, nor is it intended to be.

      So hopefully this clears up some of the confusion.

      You are also welcome to check out the independent reviews from other traders and what they are saying about the course here;

    Hi Chris,
    You mentioned in the video that accumulation will never have a series of lower highs and the lows holding a level. Can you give some examples how real accumulation looks like or how we can differentiate?

  • grif

    excellent read on PA.

  • Victor

    Hi, this video doesn’t seem to be playing, it’s just a still image.

    • Chris Capre

      Hello Victor,

      Thanks for letting us know.

      Just fixed so it should be good now.

      Let me know if you have any issues.

      Kind Regards,

  • Eloy Fromm

    Thanks again for sharing this info on price action. I rarely ever hear anyone talking about the order flow behind the price action. Everyone is preaching all the same crap (trade pin bars from key levels), but nobody is teaching you how to understand what’s behind the price action.

    Thanks for sharing something different. Joining your course this week, so look for me.

  • aweso

    Really informative article post. I will study it and your other free articles intensely, and join your course soon so look for me.

  • mohamed

    Hello Chris ,
    I have a question here , is to confirm that we have transition in the trend should be with the context lets say at support or resistance level

    • Chris Capre

      Hello Mohamed,

      You are a member in the Price Action Course so please ask this question in there.

      Thanks in advance.

      Kind Regards,

  • Peter

    I like the topic: order flow behind pin bar formation. But i do not understand the explanation for it.

    I understand chris capre is currently writing a book on price action, if true then am looking forward to the book.

  • kiran

    Excellent video Chris. Helped me understand the impulsive vs. corrective move a bit more. Thank you.

    • Chris Capre

      Hello Kiran,

      Am glad to hear you found this useful. Understanding price action through impulsive and corrective moves will really build up one’s PA skills.
