What is Boom and Crash Drop and Spike Catching Strategy?
Few months ago, I developed the Extensive exhaustion point (EEP) strategy. The EEP strategy for Boom and Crash which is still being used by most of my mentees followed the Hooke’s law principles. You see, Crash was designed in a way that when Crash buys up (which is the default mode) it will certainly drop, retrace and continue in the default mode, same thing with Boom, when Boom sells down (which is the default mode) it will certainly spike, retrace and continue in the default mode. If you can know these drop/spikes point, your questions of how to avoid spikes in Boom and Crash will certainly be answered.

The Boom and Crash drop and spike catching strategy followed the same principles with the EEP strategy, if you are familiar with Hooke’s law which state that “The strain of the material is proportional to the applied stress within the elastic limit of that material” This implies that a time will come when the elastic limit will be exceeded, when this is done, there will be drop in Crash and Spike in Boom. This strategy tends to assist you to spot those spot with ease.
