    Q1. difference between foundation and consolidation?

    is foundation the same as consolidation but is rising up?
    and we would only know it is a foundation in retrospect.

    Q2. at 13:00 you talk about breakout or breakdown?
    definition breakdown is price falls down support
    breakout prices pushes through resistance

    p.s I enjoyed the tip- if phase isnt clear. move to higher time frame or change currency pair

      Yeah! Well done on taking action, Andrew!

      Q1. The name isn’t very important here. What matters is what you look for (same thing in both cases). In the foundation/consolidation, you’ll look for reversals & breakouts/breakdowns.
      Q2. We could see a breakout OR a breakdown on this chart depending if the price goes above or below the range. You got to be prepared for both.

      Keep it up!

    Hi Etienne,
    I has always been mystified by this HHLL sequence, I notice it is pretty much depend on time frame you are looking at. Is there any a rule of thumb on how to look at the market phase?

      I found the weekly timeframe to work well in my case. Module #2 of Power Trader goes more in-depth on that but it’s quite simple.

    Hello Etienne,

    Would you consider using the heikin ashi only to analyse market phase, it filters a lot the noise so we can see better the Highs and lows ! What’s your opinion about that ? ;)

    Thanks !

      Hi Adrien,

      Yes, you could do that!

      However, I don’t think the results will be way different than with regular candlesticks.

      It’s a matter of preference…whatever helps you get a clear picture is helpful.

      Hope that helps!

      Best regards,
      Etienne Crete
