On February 7 2022 I posted on social media @AidanFX “ USDJPY Will be watching for BUYING opportunities for a move higher towards 115.36 – 115.59 area. Price needs to stay above 114.90 so any buying stop loss will be this level.“
Confluence trading is a combination of two or more trading strategies/techniques that come together and form a high probability buy/sell zone in a certain area in the market. Market patterns (Elliott Waves, Harmonic, Head and Shoulders etc.), price action analysis (Support & Resistance, Supply & Demand Zones, Candlestick analysis etc.) and indicators (RSI, Moving Average, Stochastic etc.) are technical strategies/techniques used when trading a confluence setup. The charts below show a confluence trade setup that signals a trader on which side to take the trade.
BUY Trade Setup
1. RSI Indicator Bullish Trend Continuation Divergence (Blue)
2. Price respects the Dynamic Support 200 MA signalling more upside (Black)
3. Price finds buyers at the Bullish Order block (Pink Box)
4. Stochastic Indicator in oversold levels
5. Price respects Static Support/Resistance Level (Purple)
6. RSI Indicator above 50 level signalling bullish momentum and triggers BUY

A trader should always have multiple strategies all lined up before entering a trade. Never trade off one simple strategy. When multiple strategies all line up it allows a trader to see a clearer trade setup. If you followed me on social media you too could have caught the USDJPY move higher. We at EWF never say we are always right. No market service provider can forecast markets with 100% accuracy. Only thing we at EWF 100%, is that we are RIGHT more than we are WRONG.
Of course, like any strategy/technique, there will be times when the strategy/technique fails so proper money/risk management should always be used on every trade. Hope you enjoyed this article and follow me on social media for updates and questions> @AidanFX
