I have come to the conclusion that trading reversals is HARD! I have such a low win % from trading reversals off bullish/bearish divergences (usually off MACD histogram) that I have come to the following conclusion: A bearish divergence on an indicator may be enough to keep me from going long a contract, but it won't be enough to get me to go short.
In trying to trade reversals I always wait for >= 5 waves in the direction of the trend, sell at/near resistance (e.g. pivot point, fib level) and sell on stop below the swing high bar that caused the divergence (in the case of bearish divergence in an uptrend). However I usually get burned trading reversals - I almost want to forget about trading reversals all together...except I hear so many traders say how reversals are their best/favorite/most profitable trades, so obviously I'm doing something wrong!
I would appreciate any thoughts/tips from others on this subject.
