Many many investors exit a long running trend far to early, and they also fail to recognise when a trend starts.
In a previous blog post we showed you RTT Steps with Gold and Silver, this indicator was designed to compliment our Richard Wyckoff logic. Trends do move up by a process of 'Cause' and 'Effect', like steps, and as you can see RTT Steps showing the stepping stone (continuation) accumulation phases as well as accumulation bases and of course when price shows a change in character (by either breaking the reaction line or the lower band line).
Also as stated before..
Readtheticker.com RTT Steps tool does so much more than the age old moving averages, they give you the range of expected movement during a trend, a possible pullback reaction line (below the red dotted line is set to 60% pullback [60% between upper and lower range of RTT Steps], and off course a quick view of support and resistance.
