Thus very often the market will reverse just short of these levels, much to the fury of many traders who'd been counting the pennies before they were securely in the till! Consider the stylised bar chart in figure 1, areas (A) and (B) represent a two period reversal stmcture that is commonly seen in the markets. Taking the highlighted (A) area first, the bulls would have been well contented at the close of the period (close "C"). However, they were due for a shock, as whilst the market did push higher to begin with in the next period (sucking more weakly committed bulls in), by the close (close "D") there were a lot of unhappy and damaged traders around.
