RegularDivergenceisusedasapossiblesignforatrendreversal. If price is making lower lows (LL), but the oscillator is making higher lows (HL), this is considered to be Regular BullishDivergence. This normally occurs at the end of a DOWNTREND. After establishing a second bottom, if the oscillator fails to makeanewlow,itislikelythatpricewillrise,aspriceand momentum are normally expected to move in line with eachother

If price is making a higher high (HH), but the oscillator is lower high (LH), then you have Regular Bearish Divergence. This type of divergence can be found in an UPTREND. After price makes that second high, if the oscillator makes a lower high, then you can probably expect price toreverseanddrop.

Hidden Bullish Divergence happens when price is making a higher low (HL), but the oscillator is showing alowerlow(LL). ThiscanbeseenwhenthepairisinanUPTREND.Once price makes a higher low, look to see if the oscillator does the same. If it does not, but instead makes a lower low, then you've got Hidden Bullish Divergence onyourhands.

Hidden Bearish Divergence occurs when price makes a lower high (LH), but the oscillator is making a higher high (HH). By now you've probably guessed that this occursinaDOWNTREND. When you see Hidden Bearish Divergence, chances are that the pair will continue to shoot lower and continue thedowntrend.
