...errr....yeah.... so the line should be marked as I've marked it then??? I don't get what you're getting at. You'd have looked for a short at a return near to the line and probably lost?

yes if i took a trade there...and I may have lost. your correct.
Im saying there should not be a short zline there....it doesnt qualify as a continuation short zline. The CC did not close below the line.

Look at my G/U chart. From the point my purple short zline is drawn, there is only that one and one blue zline. Not because that is all I have drawn, but because that is all there are.

ah....maybe here lies the problem.

Your long bias is the break of the bottom line...not the one you have marked. And yes...just looking at the CC's I would be thinking shorts there. It doesnt mean I would not drop to a lower time frame for confirmation.

Let me mark up a cc for ya....

Sorry Doji, hehe. you've completly lost me. You've said you shouldn't be short and you should be short in the space of about 2 posts. Also that a CC does not close over the line when clearly there's a big red ?CC closing over the line. i just don't get it.

No. The 3rd from the bottom is correct. If you count down 3 from the top ignoring the one that runs off the left side of the pic.....is the one that is not.


I meant that the 3rd from the bottom "was" correct but is now not correct because of the green candle going through it. I hope I'm correct ](*,)

We're probably posting out of sync now due to the time taken to do this, so this should be fun :lol:
