One easily gets lured in by ones emotions triggered from the environment. Prices flickering before ones eyes on the computer screen. Certainly colleagues at work sharing their opinions. Above all, media hype with headlines exaggerating facts. Consequently, there can be conflict of when to act. Removing oneself to a higher time frame view and form ones own opinion and trading execution plan is necessary. Blaise Pascal put it best: “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” The following monthly and weekly charts show just such a possibility, where the unexpected might happen. Consequently prices possibly turning not at the usual horizontal support resistance zones, that are so overused in typical technical analysis.
Oct 3rd 2019, BTC/USDT, weekly chart, the unexpected:
Usual methods for entry can be used, should the next turning point be at a classical horizontal support resistance zone. What we find useful is to be prepared for the lesser obvious. The weekly chart above shows how prices behaved last time they touched the lower yellow directional support resistance zone.

This could set up just the turning point we are looking for. Risk reward ratios looking mutually attractive.

When emotions get triggered they ask for energy release. Over trading, chasing trades, and many more loss creating behaviors can be the result. The more advanced trader might be able to contain immediate energy release actions, but still hopes for confirmation. In this case a swift price decline to the US$7,000 zone or bar takeouts on price charts to the upside. The truly astute trader follows Pascals advise and forms his/her independent scenario and prepares in addition – the unexpected.
