Look for Platform Candlestick Patterns Offering Low Risk & Early Entry
The giant Buy Side Institutions control vast amounts of money on behalf of their fundholders. They are the giant Mutual Funds and Pension Funds in the US and around the world. Most of the time Individual Investors and Retail Traders do not know how to find the giant Buy Side Institutions because they do not recognize the Platform Candlestick Pattern, or bottoming patterns that indicate their Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation of stock.
The chart example below shows Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation on 3 levels, as indicated by the 3 lines on the chart. It is a daily chart view.
The chart also shows the consistency of the buying pattern confirmed in the Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation Indicators of Volume in the middle chart window and Balance of Power in the bottom chart window.
This confirmation by stock leading indicators and the consistency of price action is how to find the giant Buy Side Institutions footprint on the stock chart.
When you trade with these funds by buying when they buy and selling when they sell, you increase profit potential and lower risk.
These are the savvy money managers in the business. They accumulate stock, using a very specific methodology. They buy into a stock incrementally over a time period of often many months, which means they can be buying slowly and consistently as a stock forms a Platform, and then moves up again.
This type of price pattern is excellent for Position Traders, as it provides strong support and low risk entries. It wreaks havoc on Swing Traders and Day Traders who are constantly whipsawed out of their trades, due to the tighter price action and smaller range that is not wide enough for a Stop and Reverse SARs or other Trading Range style strategy.
