They occur when a new high or low is formed which is then immediately violated – forming a Trap Move. Trap Moves are often followed by a Waterfall Event making this a Low Risk/High Reward Pattern.

  • Bull Traps are formed when the very reason for everyone buying is instantly stripped, causing price to decline.
  • Bear Traps are formed when everyones reason for selling is immediately taken away, causing price to increase.
  • Risk Level is determined by the Trap Move itself and is the same size of the bar that made the new high/low.
