Simpler Setups: How to Trade the Squeeze

Going Back to Basics…or Starting There!

Being a trader that works on identifying directional moves means that you absolutely need to have a specific method that you use to determine if or when a directional move could happen.

The baseline of that edge has to be a setup. A setup is a signal that has been tried and tested, and you know it works more often than not, within a certain set of circumstances.
