Have you had your fill of learning how to trade divergences?
Divergence is a popular concept in technical analysis that describes when the price is moving in the opposite direction of a technical indicator.
There are two types of divergences:
- Regular divergence
- Hidden divergence
Each type of divergence will contain either a bullish bias or a bearish bias.
Since you’ve all be studying hard and not been cutting class, we’ve decided to help y’all out (cause we’re nice like that) by giving you a Divergence Trading Cheat Sheet to help you spot regular and hidden divergences quickly.
Regular divergences signal a possible trend reversal.
Hidden divergences signal a possible trend continuation.
While divergences can occur between price and any other piece of data, they are most commonly used with technical indicators, especially with momentum oscillators.
Examples of a momentum oscillator include the Commodity Channel Index (CCI), Relative Strength Index (RSI), Stochastic, and Williams %R.
That’s quite a lot to remember, isn’t it?
