Simple candlestick charting techniques help maximize profit-taking. Using the T-line rule, when prices move too far away from the T-line, on a daily chart, simply move to the 10 minute chart to show when there is a change of investor sentiment. This process allows investors to maximize a profitable trade well before it starts heading back to test the T-line. This was demonstrated in a very strong profit VIAC short trade this week. When prices move too far away from the T-line, that becomes a simple alert for being prepared to start taking profits. This is the result of reoccurring human nature reactions. The Dow is in the process of forming another bullish J-hook pattern, the S&P 500 also following that pattern set up.
