Downward Indices Trend Lines and Channels
Downward Indices Trend Line MT4 Indices Trend Line Indicator
A downward indices trend line is drawn above the downward indices trend pattern formed by consecutive lower highs, the downward indices trend line must connect at least two highs, with the most recent high being lower. For our downward indices trend examples we shall use the MT4 technical analysis software stock indices charts to illustrate an example of downward indices trend.
Since stock indexes price moves down in a zigzag manner indices traders normally draw a downward indices trend line which shows the general downward direction of the stock indices prices. In stock indices market technical analysis, this general stock indexes price direction is referred to as the TREND by stock indexes traders. In stock indexes trading technical analysis definition we can define this indices trading down indices trend line is drawn on a Indices chart showing the resistance levels (bearish market direction).
A indices trading down indices trend occurs when the stock indexes price makes a series of lower highs and lower lows. Each high is lower than the previous high - lower high, and each low is lower than the previous low - lower low therefore showing bearish stock indexes price movement.
Indices Down indices trend lines gain more validity each time stock indexes price touches the downward indices trend line but does not penetrate the indices trend line. A indices trading down indices trend remains the general direction until this series of lower highs and lower lows is broken.
In stock indexes trading technical analysis, An upside penetration of a indices trading down indices trend line is a technical buy indices trading signal, and usually the first indication that the bearish direction of stock indices prices may soon reverse.

When it comes to learning how to draw and learning stock indexes trading technical analysis of stock indices charts, you need to know that when the stock indexes trading market is bearish it forms lower lows and lower highs forming a downward general market direction. These are the points that are used to draw the downward indices trend line.

Trading This Downward Indices Trend Market Move
When trading with this indices trend line trading method, this indices trend line setup will show the general direction of the stock indexes trading market as downwards therefore indices traders will only open short sell stock indexes trades. These are the levels where if stock indexes price retraces then these points will provide strong resistance. This is why many short sellers will wait until stock indexes price retraces upwards and hits these retracements levels to open sell stock indexes trades. Indices trades opened at these levels have a high Risk to Reward Ratio with minimum draw down.
For Example, in the above indices trading example, a indices trader would have opened short sell indices trading signals at the resistance1, resistance2, resistance3 and these sell stock indexes trades would have made a lot of profits with minimum amount of draw-down/retracement.
Downward Indices Channel MT4 Channel Indicator
A indices downward channel is drawn by drawing a line that is parallel to the downward indices trend line and then adjusting it to touch the bottom boundary of the stock indexes price movement. This then forms a downward indices channel and as long as the stock indexes price stays between these two channels the general stock indices market direction is intact the stock indexes trading market direction will continue being bearish.
Trading The Downward Stock Indexes Channel
The downward indices channel is used by stock indexes traders to show levels where it is best to take profits. Indices traders will take some profit once the stock indexes price touches the lower channel and wait for another retracement before opening a short sell indices trade again.
