Many traders, after trading for a while, use all kinds of trading indicators that are still ineffective, now they often look for simpler things. Perhaps price action is the ideal choice when trading is based solely on the prices shown on the candles and does not require any trading indicators.

But after some time finding out price action, traders really find it, it is not as simple as they think it is even more complicated than what they themselves imagined. The most important thing is that the first time, using price action is not only ineffective, but sometimes even the analysis gets complicated.

Once you've learned about the simplest of ideas and still find them ineffective in the end, they can be frustrating at times. The reason why traders first approach price action is very easily confused. Mainly for 3 reasons:


1. Knowledge of price action is broad but traders are not patient enough

If you learn about price action, you will see, price action is very wide, which also divided into many different transaction schools. Many traders started to learn price action systematically, absorbing knowledge in a discrete way, so the trading is so ineffective.

When seeing ineffective, many traders will quickly become discouraged, this is also the reason why many traders who have not seen the beauty of the price action rushed out their shirts.

2. Price action is not simply a candlestick pattern, a price pattern

Many traders believe that just learning a few candlestick patterns, grasping a few price models is considered to know about price action knowledge. But in reality that's only a very small part of the price action only.


Because of this thought, many traders kept their face on finding candlestick patterns to trade, which is also a big cause for many traders to lose. In price action, there are many candlestick patterns, even if you fully grasp these candlestick patterns, you will not be able to trade effectively.

Most traders, the more they know about the candlestick patterns, the more chaotic the transaction becomes. Because it is possible that at the same time, 2 candlestick patterns give opposite signals, which causes many inexperienced brothers to be confused.

3. Price action is highly subjective

Maybe price action helps traders keep track of the price action of the market, find timely signals, but in reality, this has nothing to do with its objectivity.


Price action itself is objective, but when the trader uses the information the price action provides to make personal analysis it becomes subjective. Experienced price action traders will know how to retain the highest level of objectivity in order to get really quality signals. But most traders turn that precious information into a story of their own analysis, in many ways and in other words to complicate that information.

The more dangerous thing is that traders use all that personal thought to trade. A lot of traders read candles this way and are self-righteous. But after the market moved against that judgment, they were mostly disappointed and lost confidence in price action.

So in fact, those who trade price action must be truly objective, not let individual thoughts influence what the price action offers. And that is a process.


In short, if you want to approach price action and really want to see the beauty of it, don't start with fragmentary knowledge. But take a systematic approach. For example, learn to read context through price action first, then learn how to define momentum, support through price action, and finally, learn how to trade based on that information. So slowly, new traders can grasp the polarity and order of analysis as well as price action trading.
