## Introduction

Hello everyone!
This is my Second lesson as a Crypto Academy Professor and I am glad that I am sharing knowledge to you all. I welcome you all to the Fourth Week of Season 5 of Steemit Crypto Academy.

In the Previous lecture, We studied about Recognizing patterns in Trading like Triangles, Flags. In this Lesson, We will identify Rectangle Pattern in Trading and Trading Strategy using Rectangle Pattern.

## Rectangles

Think of a rectangle as a pipe which is snaking through a construction site. It has a flat or horizontal top and flat bottom touches by the price, and price is a rattlesnake making its way through the pipe.

Rectangle pattern is formed of some tops and bottoms on the Chart. Below is the example of Rectangle Pattern.

Rectangle Pattern

As per the above image, This Patterns consists of two horizontal trendlines. I have marked trendlines in red. One is top trendline and other is bottom trendline. Notice that Price touches each trendline three times on the top (1-3) and three on the bottom (4-6). Also Notice that the Price enters the pattern from the top and then trending downward.

The exit from the Chart Pattern is known as Breakout. In the above chart, The Breakout is in downward direction but Breakout can be in any direction for Rectangle Pattern. I have highlighted the breakout point in the Chart.

For a downward breakout, Price must close below the bottom of the rectangle to stage a downward breakout.

Notice the Volume trend. Just before the breakout, Volume makes a low level. Many times Volume will fall off dramatically a day or two before the breakout of most chart patterns (not just rectangles).

## Identify Rectangle Pattern

Rectangles are rare. So, It is not easy to identify Rectangles pattern in charts. We can identify Rectangles by some points which is listed below.

CharacteristicDiscussion
Price TrendThe short term price trend leading to the rectangle is downward for bottoms and upward for tops
Horizontal trendlinesTwo horizontal, or nearly so, trendline bound price along the top and bottom of the rectangle

Note - In a Rectangle, Price moves horizontally between overhead resistance and underlying support.

When you are searching a chart for identifying the rectangle pattern, begin looking for a particular region where price moves horizontally. Price must bounce between a flat support zone at the bottom side and flat resistance zone at the top side.

Connect the minor highs with a horizontal or flat trendline on the top and bottom. A same trendline drawn below the minor lows which forms a parallel trendline. There should be atleast two touches of each trendline are required for a valid rectangle. The touches need not alternate from top to bottom, but should have atleast two clearly defined minor highs and two minor lows coming close to or touching each trendline.

In the similar case, the trendline touches must be spaced some along the pattern, they should not be together on one end only. In simple words, the trendline should not appear like a diving board, with one end unsupported.

## Rectangle Tops and Bottoms

If We want to find whether the Rectangle is a top or bottom, then look at the price trend which leading to the start of the rectangle. Rectangle bottoms have price trending downwards into them, but Rectangle tops have price tending upward.

In simple words, We can say that Rectangle Top is formed at the top of the trend whereas Rectangle Bottom is formed at the bottom of the trend.

For Rectangle Tops, Volume often recedes over the length of the Rectangle whereas for Rectangle Bottoms, the volume pattern tends to track the breakout direction.

Rectangle Top

From the above image, there is a rectangle top pattern. Price makes movement between two horizontal trendlines B and C, touching each trendline three times and spread along its length.

Price begins the uptrend at A and although price bobbles up and down (before the start of rectangle), it is clear that the rectangle is at the top of trend not at the bottom.

Rectangle Bottom

From the above image, We can notice a small Rectangle in the chart. You can zoom in the image and notice it. It is Rectangle Bottom as the Price trend higher at B and peaks at A and drops into the rectangle bottom. There, Price slides between the horizontal trendlines before breaking our upward.

Now, Let's learn two term in this pattern trading. These two terms are Undershoot and Overshoot.

Undershoot is the short dip before the start of a chart pattern and Overshoot is the short rise before the start of a chart pattern. Both Undershoot and Overshoot points occur just before a chart pattern begins. The only influence they have is to confuse novices.

Rectangle Bottom with Volume

Now, I will show you some trade setup using Rectangle Pattern.

From the above image, We can see that a rectangle is formed which is touching each trendline two times and when it breaks the Resistance line, the Point becomes our entry point. At the time of Breakout, We can take our entry and then We can mark Take Profit level and Stop loss level just below the Support line.

From the above image, We can see that a rectangle is formed which is touching each trendline three times and when it breaks the Support line, the Point becomes our entry point for short or We can sell our asset at that point. At the time of Breakout, We can take our entry and then We can mark Take Profit level and Stop loss level just above the resistance line.

## Conclusion

These Patterns are often observed in the chart of Crypto assets and If We knew about these Patterns, then We can easily trade them and can make profit by trading these patterns.

Useful lecture just like your last one.
Thank you professor

Very electrifying, using simple terms to illustrate your work is wonderful professor.

A rectangle pattern is formed of some tops and bottoms on the Chart. Below is an example of a Rectangle Pattern. This is mine and please you can examine it to make it more unique.

When price touches both trendline, flat top trendline and flat bottom trendline 2 or more than 2 times, then We can consider it as a Rectangle Pattern.

Hi professor, with regards to this SP requirement, I have a question.

If I have my own SP of say 2,300SP for example, and I choose to delegate 2,200SP, I will have 100SP undelegated. Does this affect my eligibility for this task? The 2,300SP is still my own SP after all.

·  5 months ago

You can delegate your sp to any account or community. It will not affect your eligibility. But make sure to delegate to useful community not to any bot.

Okay thank you prof

Thank you Prof. @sachino8 for this interesting topic.
I will like to partake, but please I think with your trading setup, the uptrend should have been the Sell setup whiles the downtrend should have been the buy setup.
I'm a little perplexed and I will be glad if you will clarify it for me.

·  5 months ago

Actually, In first trade setup, the price broke the resistance and hence, that is our but setup.
In second trade setup, the price broke the support level and hence that is our sell setup.

·  5 months ago

Okay thanks.
I thought it was vice versa, since we buy when the price falls and we sell when the price rises.
Thank you once again Prof. for the response.

Buenos días profesor tengo una pregunta si uno no cumple los 150sp en las tarea semanales igualmente las puedo realizar pierdo el punto del club

You can do the tasks but you will not get #club5050 point.

Prof. please with regards to the Rectangle Top and Bottom, is it the trend that defines them or their location on the trend?
From your first explanation i have understand that, to determine the rectangle type, we should consider the trend that Leads to the Rectangle.

Rectangle bottoms have price trending downwards into them, but Rectangle tops have price tending upward.

But it seems your Rectangle Bottom is found in an uptrend, the first Rectangle Bottom chart to be precise.

I have identified a Rectangle top but it is located right at the start of an uptrend chart so I'm a bit confused whether to consider it as a Rectangle Top or Bottom.
Please I don't mean to disturb, but I just need clarity.
Thank you.

Actually, that rectangle bottom is in downward as comparison to its just before price movement and after the formation of that Rectangle bottom, price starts moving upward which means that rectangle is at bottom.

Rectangle top means with the formation of top rectangle, price will move downward same with bottom. After formation of bottom rect., Price will move downward.

Okay
Thank you very much.

Professor @sachin08 Can you please clear the last screenshot, The Sell Trade Setup. In that part, I don't understand how to apply the "Take Profit" and the "Stop Loss".

·  5 months ago

After the breakout from support level, mark the take profit level in downward direction and stop loss level just above the support level.

Thank you professor.
