Foundations of Technical Analysis: Constructing a Trade Setup Part 2

Michael Boutros, Strategist

In this episode of our bi-weekly webinar on the Foundations of Technical Analysis, we build on our previous session where we discussed constructing a complete trade setup from scratch. There are various approaches on how we can execute on these levels and in today’s session we reviewed the setups highlighted last month and follow the progression of a trade- start to finish.
