instruments, different timeframes, and using various trade management methodologies. The results have always been highly favorable. Needless to say, this setup remains a key staple of my trading arsenal. The extreme reversal setup is a classic "rubber band" trade. When a rubber band is stretched to its limits and then released, it snaps back in the direction from whence it came. We are looking to trade the snapback reversal with this setup.
The basic setup occurs when an extremely large candle forms that is about twice the size of the average
. While this candle may indicate that a continuation will be seen, the second bar of the pattern does not confirm a continuation and, instead, is an opposing candle that signals an upcoming reversal. When this occurs, you have a fantastic opportunity to buy below value, or sell at a premium.
The extreme reversal setup looks to capitalize over-extended situations in the market, as responsive buyers and sellers will enter the market to push price back in the opposite direction.
