A traditional principle for identifying pull-backs in an uptrend is to count three bearish consecutive candles -
- set your chart to the trade time-frame (too many candles only helps obscure the picture)
- note a candle which has a lower high and lower low than the preceding candle
- note a second consecutive candle with a lower high and lower low
- mark the third consecutive candle with a lower high and lower low - this confirms the pull-back so now you’re free to buy or - better - set a buy order.
