Forex & Stocks “PIN-BAR” Price Action Pattern Trading Strategy and MT4 Indicators

The Pin Bar Reversal Pattern – Let’s begin with my favorite candlestick called a pin bar. Like most formations, these can form as either a bullish or bearish signal. So what exactly qualifies as a pin bar?

Let’s take a look…

Pin bars are arguably the most effective ways to trade candlesticks because the pattern tends to create a high probability of price action.

Generally, pin bars represent an event in the market that affects both sellers and buyers. A pin bar reversal usually consists of a long tail, which is also known as the “shadow” or the “wick”.

How to Trade with Pin Bars

Trading Pin Bars against the Trend, From Key Chart Levels. When trading a pin bar counter to, or against a dominant trend, it’s widely accepted that a trader should do so from a key chart level of support or resistance.

The key level adds extra ‘weight’ to the pin bar pattern, just as it does with counter-trend inside bar patterns. Any time you see a point in the market where price initiated a significant move either up or down, that is a key level to watch for pin bar reversals.

Trading NOTE

As a beginning trader, it’s easiest to learn how to trade pin bars in-line with the dominant daily chart trend, or ‘in-line with the trend’. Counter-trend pin bars are a bit trickier and take more time and experience to become proficient at.

Longer tails on a pin bar indicate a more significant reversal and rejection of price. Thus, long-tailed pin bars tend to be a little higher-probability than their shorter-tailed counter-parts.

Long-tailed pin bars also tend to see price retrace to near the pin bar’s 50% level more often than shorter-tailed pins, this means they are typically better candidates for the 50% retrace entry discussed previously.
