Strategy Video: The Process of Trend Reversals

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Trend reversals look a lot like temporary corrections in their opening stage

• Lasting market turns rarely happen as 'V'-bottoms or tops, so it is important to weigh probabilities

• We discuss using technicals, fundamentals and market conditions to gauge trends on SPX, USD, EUR and JPY

Want to develop a more in-depth knowledge on the market and strategies? Check out the DailyFX Trading Guides we have produced on a range of topics.

One of the most common questions coming from traders, analysts and the media is whether we have seen a genuine trend reversal or simply a temporary correction. Which asset, market, theme does this refer to? Risk trends, the S&P 500, EURUSD, Yen crosses, the Dollar and numerous others are being faced with this dilemma. Determining whether we have a temporary retreat or lasting turn dramatically alters the way we approach and trade the markets. So, in the weekend Strategy Video; we discuss the process of trend reversals along with ways to assess probability though technical, fundamental and market condition analysis.
