Ross Hook Indicator

Introduction

This article will cover the fundamental of the 1-2-3 reversal formation and an in-depth discussion about the Ross Hook Pattern and the Free Ross Hook Indicator (Expo)

The Ross Hook Pattern, also called RH Pattern, is a trading strategy based on a 1-2-3 pattern breakout and is 100% based on price action. 

The original definition of the Ross Hook formation is:

“Whenever a market trend is interrupted by a correction, no matter how slight, it will leave behind a Ross Hook. In a down market, a failure by price to make a new low constitutes a Ross Hook. In an upmarket, failure by price to make a new high constitutes a Ross Hook.” 

So a Ross Hook does only occur in a trending market! We define the trend by using the 1-2-3 pattern. The RH pattern is a sign that the trend is established.

 

Why traders don’t use the Ross Hook Pattern

If you are new to trading, finding a Ross Hook formation on your chart may take time and effort because you have to find the right 1-2-3 pattern. Once the 1-2-3 pattern is identified, the trader has to wait for the Ross Hook to appear. It can be time-consuming for new traders to look for these patterns. Therefore we have developed the Ross Hook Pattern Indicator that automatically and in real-time displays and notifies you when a Ross Hook occurs. 

To understand the Ross Hook, you need to understand the 1-2-3 pattern

 

The 1-2-3 Reversal Pattern

The 1-2-3 pattern is used to identify and find trend reversals. It’s the first sign that an established trend may change, and a new one starts to form. All traders use this pattern even though they don’t know it because this is exactly the same as the price failing to make a new high or low, and a lower high or higher low follows it. HH/HL/LH -> Bearish trend shift. LL/LH/HL -> Bullish trend shift. This is a common way of identifying a trend change, which is what the 1-2-3 pattern is. Read more about the 1-2-3 pattern! Check out our Free 1-2-3 Pattern indicator!

 

What is a Ross Hook Pattern?

The Ross Hook pattern combines the 1-2-3 reversal pattern followed by a price correction. The 1-2-3 pattern must be valid before an RH pattern can be spotted. This means that the Ross Hook only occurs in established trends. 

 

How to identify an RH Pattern

Bearish Ross Hook

First, the market topped out at point 1. That’s the highest high where supply exceeds demand. Bullish traders take profit, and the price drops to point 2. This move is enhanced by all bearish traders that go short. The price makes a move up again towards point 1, and again there are not enough traders willing to buy at these high prices, so the attempt to continue the upward trend fails. Finally, point 3 is created (a lower high). The Bearish Ross Hook (RH) occurs when the price breaks below point 2, followed by a reaction or correction. This market structure low-point is what we call a Ross Hook. 

Bearish Ross Hook

The Ross Hook pattern keeps repeating itself within the established bearish trend until a bullish 1-2-3 pattern is identified. 

Bullish Ross Hook

First, the market bottomed out at point 1. That’s the lowest low where supply exceeds demand. Bearish traders take profit, and the price rise to point 2. This move is enhanced by all bullish traders that go long. The price makes a move downwards again towards point 1, and again there are not enough traders willing to sell at these low prices, so the attempt to continue the downward trend fails. Finally, point 3 is created (a higher low). The Bullish Ross Hook (RH) occurs when the price breaks above point 2, followed by a reaction or correction. This market structure high-point is what we call a Ross Hook.

Bullish Ross Hook

The Ross Hook pattern keeps repeating itself within the established bullish trend until a bearish 1-2-3 pattern is identified. 

 

Taking a trade

For the Ross Hook pattern to work, the price must break either the most recent high or the most recent low of the price correction and create a Ross Hook. At each point, you get in when the price breaks the recent low (in a downtrend) or the current high (in an uptrend). In other words, the Ross Hook Setups is a trend continuation strategy

You can make your trading easier by setting up a pending order to buy or sell when the price creates the Ross Hook.

 

Stoploss placement

When you use this pattern to get into a trade, there are many ways to set your stop loss. The most common way is to put your stop loss slightly above/below the recent Ross Hook. You can use a trailing stop as well to ride the trend out. If you want to use a stop loss based on data insights, we recommend you use our Curved Stop Loss, which analyses the market momentum and set’s the best stop loss for you. 

Taking profits and Exit the trade

The risk-reward ratio is the most common way to set the take profit or exit point. Have a risk reward of at least 1:1.5-1:2. Use our Trade & Risk Management Tool to set a target based on risk-reward automatically. 

Ross Hook Formation

A traditional way of securing profit is around previous support and resistance or using a trailing stop. We at Zeiierman Trading have developed many innovative and handy take-profit indicators that help you secure profit at the best times.
