There are specific requirements that you should follow to identify the perfect RBR pattern in the market:
- Big bullish candlestick: The body-to-wick percentage of a big candlestick should be greater than 60%. Because this candlestick refers to a bullish impulsive wave on the price chart.
- Base candlestick: The body-to-wick ratio of the candlestick should be small, like a doji candlestick. Simple candlesticks with bigger wicks/shadows and small body size. Base candle refers to the ranging market structure on the price chart.

How to draw demand zones using rally base rally in trading?
Demand zones are the areas on the price chart that talk about the presence of institutional pending orders in a specific price range. It is not an exact price, but it is a price range. The base candlesticks help to draw the zone.
The high and low prices of base candlesticks will be used to draw a demand zone. Connect the high and low prices with a rectangle and extend the rectangle to the right on the price chart. This zone will act as a demand zone.
There are two more requirements for a perfect zone:
- If the last big bullish candlestick’s low is lower than the base candles, you should use the lower point to draw the zone.
- If the first big bullish candlestick’s high is higher than the base candle’s high price, you should use the higher price to draw the zone.
These two points are essential because sometimes the price will not pick your order due to minor differences in the zone. You should follow the above guidelines to get the perfect trade setup.

Pending buy order
Open a pending buy order a few pips above the high of demand zone. Make sure to cover the spread while placing an order. Place the stop loss a few pips below the low of the demand zone. When the price returns to the demand zone, the buy order will be filled.
The drawback of the demand zone is that it does not tell us about the take profit levels, so you will have to use other technical tools like chart patterns to fix take profit levels.
The trading demand zone is always done with pending orders. It would be best if you did not prefer instant market orders due to pinpoint entries, and you will miss some trades.
