Trading Broadening Swing

An important opportunity the "Broadening" patterns offer is trading the last swing. The
number of swings in "Broadening" patterns is five. If the trend formation in the pattern is to
the upside, then trading the fifth swing would be downside and can be traded from the top
trendline. Similarly, if the trend direction before the pattern is to the downside, then the fifth
swing will be to the upside. Keep in mind that "broadening" patterns are not infallible.
However, they have a high success rate depending on where and when they form in a trend.

Trade: In "Broadening tops," the potential trade is to go short at the beginning of the fifth
swing. When the prices reach the top of the trend line, enter a short position when prices start
declining and closed below the previous low. Similarly, in "broadening bottoms," a long trade
is possible at the lower trend line. Enter a long trade when prices start making higher highs
above the lower trend line and when the price closes above the previous high.

Target: A typical target for the last swing in a "Broadening" pattern would be the trend line
on the opposite side of the pattern. Historically, this is the widest part of the pattern and is a
very profitable setup.

"Broadening" patterns are not infallible. They do fail and have significance as to how they fail.
The pattern may be indicating a breakoutibreakdown rather than a reversal of the trend. A
"stop" order is placed if prices reverse and trade outside the trend lines.

The example above illustrates a "Broadening swing" trade from the Russell Emini (ER2) 15
minute chart. The ER2 chart shows two significant swings in a broadening channel as it made
higher high swings and lower low swings. After two complete swings, ER2 presented an
opportunity to trade the last swing from 4 to 5. When prices reach the bottom trend line at
marker 4, wait for a reversal bar (close above previous high) before entering the trade.

1. Enter a "long" trade on the bar above the previous bars7 high.
2. Place a "stop" order below the trend line low.
3. Take partial profits at the mid channel line.
4. Target is set at the upper trend line.
