Early Signs of Direction in Trading Range


During early days of my trading, its very frustrating seeing my stock trapped in a trading range....guessing day and night if its breaking up or down.

Its worst for some of my trend-trading friends anticipating breakouts......buying near to the top of the range.......before cutting lost when the stock trades back to the lower bottom range.

One of the key teaching of Richard Wyckoff Method is the analysis of a trading range; Accumulation, Re-accumulation, Distribution and Re-distribution.

With his deep experience working with market insiders, he drafted out a set of rules helping private traders to identify the true actions of smart money, trade alongside with the smart money.

Here is a summarised range analysis of Singapore Post (S08), applying the Richard Wyckoff Method. You'll see the tell tale signs of a bearish re-distribution range as it develops, helping private traders to avoid long on the stock or profit by shorting the stock.
