Live Trade – Pin Bar Forex Trading Strategy

By in Forex Trading Videos by Nial Fuller Posted on January 16th, 2012 | 72 Comments

Below Is a Video of a Daily Chart Pin Bar Signal On AUDUSD Currency Pair. This Is a Trade I Posted Live on 16/1/2012. I Wanted To Share With You All How I Do My Analysis and What I look for on the charts before entering a trade. Please do not use this as trading advice and make your own decisions before entering any trades.

Here is The Risk Reward Trading Tutorial I Talked About In the Video

Video Synopsis – AUDUSD Daily Chart Pin Bar Reversal Setup

In the above video, I talked about a bullish reversal setup, trading with the trend, plotting levels and trading in a "swinging market".

I am looking at the daily chart time frame in the above video and we are looking at the last few months of price data in the AUDUSD. I draw in the key support and resistance levels on the chart first. Then it's determined we have a sideways market overall with a short-term bullish trend.

In the above video, I entered a long trade (buy entry) based purely on the market's price action. As I say in the video; there's never going to be the exact same setup twice, but what we are looking for a is a trading "edge", this is a repetitive price action setup that we can use to enter the market from. In this video, I am talking a bullish pin bar setup that formed in the AUDUSD that signaled that lower prices were being rejected and that price wants to move higher. A tail on a bullish pin bar signals bullish momentum whereas a tail on a bearish pin bar signals bearish momentum.

In the pin bar in this video I talk about the 50% retrace entry, this is a pin bar entry strategy I discuss in my courses and members area. I talk about placing my stop loss just below the pin bar low which is the typical stop loss placement on a pin bar setup. After defining your stop loss level you need to find a logical target area to place your exit target. I typically look for a risk reward of 1:2 or greater, depending on the surrounding market structure.

I close the video by talking about the fact you will have losing trades sometimes, and I have them sometimes and I do talk about them as you'll see in my commentary...I'm not afraid to talk about losing trades. But, hopefully if you have a solid edge like price action, you can put the odds in your favor over the long-run and make money.

  13. cris May 26, 2012 at 10:51 pm

  14. Jehsan May 10, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Just new to Forex. We will get along as time goes on.

  15. oduor sadia April 8, 2012 at 5:04 am

    great Nial long live Nial Fuller.

  16. Dick March 24, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    It became a very nice trade Nial, i just checked it but what i saw was that my candlechart was a bit different as your chart on the video . Can you explain how this is possible?
    Hope to hear a reaction Nial.
    Regards Dick.

  17. RC March 24, 2012 at 6:06 am

    I actually saw that video on the day he posted and I made US$ 800.00. It was sweet!!! Nial is the best trading course in the market, in my opinion!

  18. Yaniu March 2, 2012 at 10:13 am

    Hey Nial,


    After over a month from when you uploaded this video, watching this again and taking a look back at the AUD/USD price action, I’m just blown away!

    Not only did this trade end in profit, but you were spot on as price took about 14 days to reach the 1.0750 level!

    Also along the way there were many Pin Bar setups that ended up winners!

    This is the best and only place for Price Action Forex.

    Keep up the great great work. Respect!


  19. Ratheesh January 31, 2012 at 10:39 am

    Hello Nial,
    I am really excited by your strategy, hope I will be in your members group very soon.

  20. Dane Middleton January 27, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    I love your videos, I watch them over and over. Thanks for being a real human, showing all angles of the game – much respect

  21. Danny January 26, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    This was a great trade with several price action setups along the way to enter. I entered Once again on a 50% pullback of the most recent pin and took a profit of 1:3. At the time of this video being posted I already was up 1:2 on a previous trade but have just closed out for a 1:3. A nice little addition to my trading account. Great video.

  22. Michał January 26, 2012 at 6:31 am

    very good trade :)

  23. Lionell Dixon January 22, 2012 at 8:28 am

    And he does it again! Thanks for another great one Nial!!!!

  24. golam minhaz January 21, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    thanks a lot for this nice video.

    this method makes me happy .

    again thanks.

  25. Piotr January 20, 2012 at 5:40 am

    Hi Nial,

    thanks for the great video!It’s very difficult to keep things simple while trading and every time I watch any of your videos I m trying to look at charts the same as you master!Nice and simple!



  26. Steffen January 19, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Great video Nial. I love the comment that went something like “some credit downgrades happened in EZ over the weekend, I don’t really care…”.

    You are absolutely right not to care. I’ve only lately noticed how pointless it is to follow news because it only mixes your thoughts. Sure they might have an effect on the market but usually the daily price action itself is dominant.

    I missed out on this trade because of my too bearish bias. Maybe next time. Good luck

  27. Barry January 19, 2012 at 10:17 am

    Good Call, Nail, see as of Today (Thursday) you up 160 pips,
    Take care

  28. ELAINE January 18, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Hi Nial, i’m really in love with your website, they are so informative!

  29. george January 18, 2012 at 8:43 am

    Awesome Nial
    Well through on the course now that I have more time.

  30. Lisa Wuornos January 18, 2012 at 7:31 am

    Good stuff, Nial!! I was watching this one as well. It just confirms that what I’ve learned from you has stuck and I know how to spot trading opportunities. Thank you for your website!

  31. akshaya kumar dash January 18, 2012 at 2:24 am

    very excellent and usefull coment

  32. Fayaz January 18, 2012 at 1:12 am

    Wow simply a wining trade target got hit today

  33. Peter January 17, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Great job Nial! This one was a sure winner. I absolutely love your advise from a previous newsletter that said that you have to be patient and shoot like a sniper. That’s gold!

    Thx again.

  34. Jasper January 17, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    And it turned out a winner already, nice. I took the NZDUSD yesterday. Same scenario :-) Thanks for everything.

  35. Drazik January 17, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Just Hit my 1:2 profit target… Good to watch to see if it pulls back to form support then moves higher… nice trade.

  36. Nick January 17, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    Hi Nial

    Looked at your video, just wondered why you waited as long as you did before entering your trade?

    Couldn’t you have just entered the day after the pin-bar,at its high, and stop loss half-way down its tail?



  37. Martin January 17, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Very good video, makes even more sense having gone through the course a couple of times. Thanks

  38. kotijett January 17, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    Thanks Nial.

  39. Ramli ms January 17, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Thanks Nail.


  40. Drazik January 17, 2012 at 10:51 am

    Im also in this trade and I am up at the moment and looking for a 1:2 or 1:3 risk reward. Great to see you put up this video Nial. It would be great to see more of the trades you take.

  41. Andrew D January 17, 2012 at 9:08 am

    Hi Nial,
    Just received your email and video; checked my trading diary and found that we must be telepathic. Let’s wait and see what happens!
    I was in this pair long all last week with great success.
    Thanks for the inspiration to keep trading even when the losers come like buses.
    Andrew D

  42. Greg January 17, 2012 at 8:50 am

    It looks like I am too conservative, because I did not take this trade waiting until it breaks 1,038 level then retrace to it confirming that 1.038 became the new support. This looked too risky to me in these volatile times.

  43. Ed January 17, 2012 at 7:20 am

    Thanks for this insight to your trading Nial. Great content.

  44. Michael January 17, 2012 at 6:59 am

    GREAT Video.
    Current market analysis and reasoning for taking a trade is VERY Helpfull! The best way to learn is looking over your mentor’s shoulder to see how they do it!!

  45. claudio del valle January 17, 2012 at 5:14 am

    gracias por tus comentarios y vídeos son muy importantes y necesarios para nuestro aprendizaje

  46. T Allen January 17, 2012 at 4:54 am

    LUV the Video Nial – Great example – Keep the videos coming … it is great to hear your voice and see you walk through an entry on the charts.

  47. GioRoma January 17, 2012 at 4:31 am

    I really love the simplicity (and effectiveness) of price action and your analysis is just superb!!! Thanks.

  48. BB January 17, 2012 at 4:07 am

    i like the psychology in this approach.Appr
    oaching forex from a psychological point of view is somehow more
    comprehensible to me, as opposed to placing faith in technical indicators. The closer your interpretation
    is to the beating heart of price action, the clearer
    the analysis seems to become.

  49. Robby January 17, 2012 at 3:52 am

    Good call Nial. I do think daily chart traders will be watching the close of this candle also….if this candle closes above the open price of the previous candle this will be an engulfing on the bodies .

  50. sniper jeff January 17, 2012 at 3:24 am

    Like it.its great to get your mindset on some trades it helps us novices. it looks like a flat top triangle indicating a break to the upside and trend is up lets hope it smashes that resistance! I went for a similar trade on nzd/usd

  51. Marcena January 17, 2012 at 2:42 am

    Many thanks for a great video!

  52. PERI January 17, 2012 at 2:39 am

    Thank you very much for your video presentation.
    We are on the path of improving our trading wisdom
    by following your Course.

  53. Shane January 17, 2012 at 1:51 am

    Another nice video.
    Thanks Nial!

  54. radiostar January 17, 2012 at 1:05 am

    Excellent video, Nial. Very helpful. More of the same please. BTW, you might consider dropping the background music, it’s quite distracting. Just a bit of constructive criticism, hope it helps.

  55. Michael January 17, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Thanks for the nice and clean charts – well explained. I hope for you that your trade works out well. I see major resistance at the US indices ( Daily ) and therefore in AUDUSD and NZDUSD I currently see the opposite, lol. Big Boys are absorbing all buy orders and preparing for a drop. But this might be wrong of course. My sincere wishes for your further success in 2012.

  56. George January 17, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Well done Nial, like some of the comments you made about daily charts how accurate they are, hope the trade turns out well.

  57. Fred January 17, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Great bit of training on how to do the analysis.


  58. David Amos January 17, 2012 at 12:02 am

    It’s been a while since you put any videos out Nial, I like this one, actually did not take this trade because of the near upside resistance, looks like I am becoming too cautious now!!!

  59. Monica January 17, 2012 at 12:01 am

    Thanks so much for that set up……it helps me learn exactly what to look out for. Could you pls update us if you think the trade may go against your trade and what bars/support/resistance to support that? ie warning signals that it MAY go against? I love your easy methodology!!

  60. Terry January 16, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    Thanks for the video lesson. I have been following you for a while now, and I am seeing the logic in plain and simple Price Action. Thanks again!

  61. Johan January 16, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Great lesson,nothing like a hands on “teacher”. Looking at my chart and your lesson at the same time really helped seeing the setup better.Hope it works out.

  62. DRS January 16, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Nial is right – pin bars are very effective price action signals, however, sometimes not spotting a Harami can be a missed opportunity – And you see more of these than pin bars.(really need confirmation for Harami – I think so anyway).

    Just saying.

  63. Ross January 16, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Hi Nial,

    Im waiting for the US Index to sort out what side of the current S/R line it wants be on before i trade AU.

    If you look at a 10 day – 1H chart you will see how it is currently playing out.


  64. Sanjay January 16, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Loads of respect for this. You practise what you preach and that what I love about ltttm.

    Good luck will the trade.


  65. Socratis January 16, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Yeah….. show to those guys out there, saying you have no balls, that they are wrong!!! ;)

  66. Tim_ January 16, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Excellent Nial, that’s was exactly what the course has taught me, I live for the simplicity of it

  67. Charles January 16, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    cool video Nial! More evidence that you put your money where your mouth is.

  68. Filopastry January 16, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Great to see a video again,
    I have taken the buy nzdusd see how it goes

  69. Con Kats January 16, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Nail, good work and I really respect you putting your reputation on the line with a live trade. I hope it turns out well but either way , well done .

  70. skeg January 16, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    another awesome video Nial.
    Lets see some of those losing one’s then ;)
    serious good video, love to see these

  71. Jared January 16, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Hey Nial,

    I’m very impressed that you’ve put this video up PRIOR to knowing the outcome of the trade. I hope it goes well for you!
