These often seem more the rule than the exception.
But these circumstances are what a clever swing trader can exploit by turning the tables. Instead of falling for the many tricks of the Smart Money, he can learn how to identify their tracks in the chart. From this, he can develop a highly profitable swing trading strategy that focuses exclusively on the detection of so-called "fakes". Often, it turns out that the deception of the major players represents just the start of a significant movement. To trade this is mostly high rewarding.
With reference to several examples in different markets and technical chart situations the author follows the traces of the Smart Money. With practice, every trader can locate these tricks on a chart and identify the underlying intentions.
