How to read pin bars on Binomo

Pin bars develop at the top of an uptrend or at the bottom of a downtrend. Their appearance forecast a change in a trend’s direction.

During an uptrend, the pin bar on the top will have a long wick pointed up. It is called a bearish pin bar. The trend might soon reverse and move downwards.

During a downtrend, the long shadow of the pin bar is pointed down. This pin bar is known as a bullish one. A consequent uptrend is imminent.

A perfect pin bar

There is a kind of pin bar that is considered to be perfect in the traders’ world. To assume a pin bar is ideal there are two conditions that must be met.

  • The opening and closing of a pin bar must be located near the bottom or the top of the previous bar.
  • The opening and closing of a pin bar must be contained within the length of the previous candle that is sometimes called the left eye.

The appearance of an ideal candle is regarded as the perfect moment to open a transaction. It should be a sell position when you spot a bearish pin bar and a buy trade when you detect a bullish pin bar during a downtrend.
