Hi Joksa44,

I hope this helps, the entry was 15min rat trade after the retrace back to demand zones on 1hr that lined up 15min demand zone( demand zones are same as zlines ie held profit).

The nearest target was the fridays opening price on daily which also in line with 4hr zline.

15min Analysis


1hr Analysis

I took that same trade bettlebox, I must be doing something right if you took it too.

Doji your charts are invaluable, Ive been struggling for ages with 4hour mightyzones, trading the 15min with 1hr custom candles. It might be easy for some of you but it just confuses the crap out of me. I can find zlines in both directions and seem to take the wrong ones most of the time.

Keeping it simple like you preach is the only way to move forward as a newbie. Im back to 15min naked chart and loving it. Just have to get dragon/MO etc pips results out of my head for now.

Hope you top guys keep posting as every new chart is a new piece of the puzzle.

That was nice trade Dan Good job :)

I had same problem Dan with custom candles, I also stripped my charts back as Doji advised, its starting to come together. Don't worried about dragons PIP etc the PIPS will come just focus on learning and gaining experience.

I'm in EU long atm. UNfortunately took a short earlier as I saw the first low break so it bit me in the backside, lost 9 pips, up 3 on the long so far.

Hi News

did you take a breakout trade, on 15min where you got the red arrow down on your chart?
