Pin Bar Indicator Download
What an amazing technique.
Pin bar pattern is characterized by a long upper or lower wick with a small body relative to the size of the wick with little to no lower or upper shadows. Other candlestick patterns that also qualify as a pin bar are hammer and inverted hammer and hanging man type of candlestick patterns. In some cases, a doji candlestick pattern can also qualify for a pin bar candlestick pattern.
The most important thing about the pin bars is that the color of the candle is not considered. Therefore, a bullish pin bar is identified by long lower wicks and a bearish pin bar is identified by long upper wicks, irrespective of how the body of the candlestick closes.
Having said that, pin bars can have more validity when the body of the candle also corresponds to the over bias of the pin bar. For example, bullish pin bar with a bullish close is more valid and likewise, a bearish pin bar with a bearish candlestick is more valid. While pin bars can form anywhere on the chart, they are considered a strong pattern when pin bars are formed near support and resistance levels.
Pin bars can also be commonly formed near a moving average as well as trend lines. Pin bars are valid across all time frames, but of course, a pin bar on a weekly or daily charts take more precedence than pin bars formed on lower time frames.
The chart above shows a pin bar rejection near a previously known support level. Notice how price constantly bounces off the support level subsequently. The identification of the pin bar at the support level shows that it is a strong level of buyers reflected by the long wicks.
In this case, the pin bar is even more valid as the bullish pin bar also has a bullish close twice. If you were to trade based off support and resistance, the appearance of the pin bar is reason enough to take long positions when price revisits the previously rejected price near the support zone. In the next chart above, we get to see an example of a bearish pin bar. Again, it is more valid because the body of the pin bar is also in the same bearish bias as well.
A second test of the resistance level after the first pin bar was formed held and a third attempt was made which formed in a weaker form of the pin bar and prices subsequently dropped lower. In Figure 5, we have an example of trading trend lines with pin bar confirmation. Here, we first plotted a down sloping falling resistance line connecting the first two lows. As price continues to fall further with the trend line acting as resistance, towards the end, we notice a strong bullish pin bar.
This tells us that while prices were pushed lower, the buyers out numbered the sellers, leaving a long lower wick. Eventually, a few candles later, price broke out of the falling trend line to rally.
As can be seen with the above examples, pin bars can be very useful in expressing the market sentiment. Recently we introduced a 3 Trailing stop system into one of our Expert Advisors. Many Forex Traders regard drawdowns as an important statistic when trading or testing an Expert [more].
