bullet Trading with a combination of moving averages and bearish-trending candlestick patterns

In this chapter, I explore the ways you can use trendlines and moving averages with bearish-trending candlestick patterns to uncover promising trading opportunities. Those two versatile types of technical analysis methods are great for detecting downtrends, and when you pair them with bearish-trending candlestick patterns, it can be much easier for you to pick the best spots for entering short selling trades. And as if that weren’t enough, you can also use that potent combination to determine when it’s time to cover your short position and (hopefully) pocket a profit.
