Price Action Trading Patterns: Pin Bars, Fakey’s, Inside Bars

author thumb
By in Forex Trading Strategies Last updated on | 197 Comments

In this Forex trading lesson, I am going to share with you three of my favorite price action trading strategies; pin bars, inside bars and fakeys. These trading setups are simple yet very powerful, and if you learn to trade them with discipline and patience you will have a very potent Forex trading edge.

Whilst these three setups are my ‘core’ setups, there are many other versions and variations of them that we focus on in our members’ community and advanced price action trading course. However, you can learn some good basics in this article to lay the foundation for future learning. So, without further delay, let’s get this party started…

Pin Bar Setup:

The pin bar is a staple of the way I trade the Forex market. It has a very high accuracy rate in trending markets and especially when occurring at a confluent level. Pin bars occurring at important support and resistance levels are generally very accurate setups. Pin bars can be taken counter trend as well, as long as they are very well defined and protrude significantly from the surrounding price bars, indicating a strong rejection has occurred, and preferably only on the daily chart time frame. See the illustration to the right for an example of a bearish pin bar (1st bar) and a bullish pin bar (2nd bar) —>

In the following chart example we will take a look at pin bars occurring within the context of a trending market; my favorite way to trade them. Also, note that this uptrend began on the back of two bullish pin bars that brought an end to the existing downtrend.

Fakey Setup:

The fakey trading strategy is another bread and butter price action setup. It indicates rejection of an important level within the market. Often times the market will appear to be headed one direction and then reverse, sucking all the amateurs in as the professionals push price back in the opposite direction. The fakey setup can set off some pretty big moves in the Forex market.

As we can see in the illustration to the right, the fakey pattern essentially consists of an inside bar–> setup followed by a false break of that inside bar and then a close back within its range. The fakey entry is triggered as price moves back up past the high of the inside bar (or the low in the case of a bearish fakey).

In the chart below we can see the market was recently moving higher before the fakey formed. Note the fakey was formed on the false-break of an inside bar setup that occurred as all the amateurs tried to pick the market top, the pros then stepped in and flushed out all the amateurs in a flurry of buying…

Inside Bar Setup:

The inside bar is a great trend continuation signal, but it can also be used as a turning point signal. However, the first way to learn how to trade the inside bar strategy is as a continuation signal, so that is what we will focus on here, more info on the inside bar and all the ways to trade it can be found in my advanced price action trading course. As we can see in the illustration to the right, an inside bar is completely contained within the range of–>  the previous bar

It shows a brief consolidation and then a break out in the dominant trend direction. Inside bars are best played on daily and weekly charts. They allow for very small risks and yet very large rewards. The inside bar strategy combined with a very strongly trending market is one of my favorite price action setups.

In the example below, we are looking at a current (as of this writing) EURUSD inside bar trade setup that has come off to the downside with the existing bearish market momentum. We can see a nice inside bar setup formed just after the market broke down below a key support level, the setup has since come off significantly lower and is still falling towards the next support at 1.2625, as of this writing. Many of our members are in on this trade as we’ve discussed it extensively in both the members forum and the daily member’s commentary.

As you can see from the three examples above, Forex trading does not have to be complicated or involve plastering messy and confusing indicators all over your charts. Once you master a few solid price action setups like the ones above and the others in my Forex trading course, you will be well on your way to becoming a more confident and profitable trader, just remember, mastering these setups will require patience, dedication and discipline.

    Hi Nail,
    Thanks for all your valuable information you are sharing with traders.
    But i have seen these forms of pin bars, inside pin bars, … in the history of charts for different time frames without this form of moving and during 5 years of trading i could not use them as you have mentioned above. Even i have written all the important necessary shape, forms, … and follow step to step and 1 out of 10 times they were accurate.
    How can you explain these problems?
    Best wishes

    Thank you for this article.
    Presumably you look for the momentum switch or pin bar on the daily chart and place your trade on the 4hr?
    Also, what determines your target?
    Is it the next two candle cluster on the daily chart from where you have entered?
    Also, what determines your STOP loss. Is this above or below the fractal closest to live price on the 4hr chart?

    Kind regards

    Hi Nial

    For the Fakey set up, what would be the maximum number of inside bar (between the mother candle and the final fakey candle) that you d consider?
    Seems like 4 inside bars is already a lot, what do you think?
    thx

    Regards

    Reply
    • Nial Fuller April 22, 2015 at 9:54 am

      There is no maximum, but each chart/pattern is unique so it’s important to look at the entire context of the chart not just the individual price action pattern to make a decision. If there is 4 or more inside bars as part of the fakey pattern is can be very powerful if the market is trending or if the market is at a major level, but if the market is choppy then it might just continue that sideways grind and the inside bars are less significant. Filter each pattern on a case by case basis and discretion would be applied.

    Nial–I was preparing a talk to a local Houston Investment Group last week, outlining my evolution as a trader over the last 5 years…As I prepared it, my theme became apparent…I had gradually over time eliminated all but a few key indicators and had become a scrupulous observer of price movement and action. Slowly over time I have become better at reading the story being told by the candle charts…seeking a good definition of what it was I was doing led me to various sites and then there it was…a whole system based on Price Action and tons of material by Nial Fuller…since my talk I have been to your various sites and love your material…I look forward to immersing myself further in the insightful writings and courses you have put together….

    Hi Nial

    I just discovered your “jewel of the down under”. Your website is awesome, I have been doing Forex for many years but because of finding the right info, I put it aside but sometimes I like to read all about strategies. Signed up for your newsletter, downloaded the NY 5-day charts from Axitrader and I am looking forward to purchase your price action course. I am a technical analysis guy and love to trade off the charts. I have started to read each one of your blog posts, so I’ll be busy for a while. Because of your pinbar strategy I understand the candlestick a lot better. Price action is where the real money is. Loved your crocodile article. Thanks so much…

    Thank you very much for your great articles. I have a question. Are inside bar and harami different? Do you consider a size of candle’s body for inside bar??? For example, if the mother candle has long wigs and small body (doji) but the baby candle engulfs the mother candle’s body but formed lower high and higher low. Is this inside bar???

    Thank you.

      We Use a DIFFERENT CHART SERVER – using mt4 for the new york style close charts. This makes only 5 daily bars appear per week, and you will have yoru signals looking like the charts we use. SO, you can trade with who you want, but WE USE DIFFERENT CHARTS, thus why i stress traders have a broker platform and a seperate chart platform to relfect what we do. Nial

    • Nial January 21, 2010 at 2:19 pm

      Price action is best used with “confluent ” evidence, such as a key market level, prior price action even area, or a moving average level. Where the price action signal forms is important, the more you have to back it up as confirmation , the better.
