The First Candle Indicator

Quick intra-day post here…

The Power Of The First Candle(s)

AAPL 5 min chart


Cool chart dude….so…


Look at what I drew arrows to; Those are bullish candles, right before open and after open.

Bottom line is this; until volume eclipses the nature of those initial candles, the stock is going to move in that direction. Even if it fades on lower volume, until the large opening volume bars eclipse the volume there…the stock short (for intra-day purposes) be considered as maintaining the trend of the first candle (or candles, depending on your timeframe).


More on that later, it’s intra-day so I have some trading to do.
