Spotting fakeouts

Is there any indication that a fakeout is going to happen?
So far I have only really seen fakeouts from trendlines which have been around for days. The same fakeouts do not seem to happen on scalp lines that were formed only recently.
The major problem is that when you go long/short on a scalp line you have to get in with the first move rather than waiting for price to return.
Any good articles I could read on this?
