This is an illustration of a pin bar in action.. The pin bar is triggered by  the upward bullish pattern on the graphic which in turn  becomes a continuation signal.

Fakey Set Up

This is popularly known as a false break. This phenomena really does trigger some huge moves in the forex market So if you’re just starting out as a trader keep your eyes open for this scenario.


As you can see in this graphic, the market looks like it’s in a downward pattern. Then it suddenly breaks upward past the pin bar after forming at the support level. This what you call a false break.The potential for substantial profits in this scenario are huge. The reverse also happens in a bearish pattern where the market goes bullish then swings downward at the resistance level. So you need to keep your eyes wide open for both scenarios.

Inside Bar Setup

The inside bar setup is very useful as a continuation signal. Located in front of the pin bar, the inside bar  breaks out from the support level with the price climbing upwards.   After a brief consolidation,  an upward trend pattern  breaks out, creating a strong momentum,. Inside bars are better played on daily and weekly charts..Yes, they allow for few risks, but the rewards are substantial.


As you can see, the  inside bar is placed infront of the previous bar. This triggers an upward pattern, giving rise to potential profits.
