I hope that you are not "sleep trading" Legend; that is not what professionals do ;)

Doji is going to kick my a$$ when he sees all of these charts...
I'm trying to keep them to a minimum.

For doji, hope it doesn't distract from MO's message.

Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO

The red 3 told me that S/D was LOWER and the 123 series that followed just confirmed that something was down there.

Once again there was strong shorting at the "thumbs up" followed by a decline with a close over the marked S/D (below the red 3).

At this point we were willing to wait for one more candle because the red 3 told us that something was down here.

Price then rocketed back up to the now famous S/D, paused, and then continued up to the target.

-All of the analysis was done on the M30 using body sizes to feel for S/D.
-I did not look at a higher/lower chart or use Space.
-I just entered based on Legends analysis and then showed how you feel for S/D in real time.

Short term trading is stressful, you have to make decisions in real time without being influenced by every negative candle.

I was doing nothing but planning ahead, for 7.5 hours, asking "what do I expect & what would be unexpected"; if I plan for it, even if it is negative, then I am not impacted by negative emotions.

I hate this pair =)
