FX_IDC:GBPUSD   Pound British/Dolar U.S
By the time you are done with this tutorial, You will understand Structure, Trends, Reversals & much more! This tutorial will teach you how to dig deep into the charts & analyze where price is likely to go next!
Reading Structure can be difficult when you first start trading, however most professional traders (if not all) understand structure very well and it is definitely a skill that will dramatically help you on your journey to becoming a professional trader. I tried to make this as clear & simple as possible for anyone to understand but do not worry if this is complicated or a little confusing at first. If you are new to trading, you will benefit by studying and looking over these charts multiple times. I have found that it is also helpful if you grab a piece of paper and a pencil so you can draw the chart that you are looking at. Draw a very simple line chart and mark the highs & lows as shown in the tutorial with support & resistance lines.. You will learn much faster by doing this while training your eyes to identify trends & reversals. After you do this enough, it will start to become 2nd nature & you will spot these crucial moments in structure with a quick glance at the charts.

This is the first section of the Reading Structure Tutorial. This section will consist of 6 Charts total:

Chart 1- An Easy and effective way to determine trend.
Chart 2- Following The Trend with Support & Resistance (Highs & Lows)
Chart 3- Continuation of Chart 2
Chart 4- Identifying Possible Trend Reversals
Chart 5 - When Structure Doesn't Make Sense, Do Not Trade!
Chart 6- Another Reversal

Please leave a comment below or message me with your thoughts regarding this lesson. I am happy to continue publishing them if they are helpful to you.

Hi Alec, these are some of the most clear and concise ideas and tutorials I have seen. You mentioned a couple of times you hope they are not confusing, but I think they are exactly the opposite - very understandable, taking us from one point or idea to the next. I think I speak for everybody we can't wait for sections 3 through 5 to be published. Do you have any idea on the timing when they will be out? Also, since you asked for ideas, I might suggest some tutorial on deciding when to make entries and exits. This tutorial has focus on structure and only says to make decision on entries.
Such a great work, clean logic, easy to follow. Really appreicated. what is the time like 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month on each technical Analysis of each ticker? Thanks.
Great tutorial and answers to people's comments!
Thank you so much for this
Great tutorial Alec!! I can't wait for Section 3 & 4. Thanks so much.
Sincerely appreciate the information. As someone new to trading, this was a huge help and very easy to understand. Often the charts and language used in other tutorials is completely foreign to new traders. Looking forward to more material.
