do you mean these two zlines? they both were rejected immediatly with a close below the zline so they are o real zlines for me.

or are they?

right now i don't feel very excited about the trade and a close above 24 will turn the chart into a long.

Price has not yet closed over the white line, so I'm not interested yet. Please keep in mind I am learning the same as you, so I could be in the wrong!

See that big green candle as an enemies fortress. If Your troops haven't broken the door down, do you want to charge in to take the treasure?

the decline ended with a strong small-larger-larger on the shift.


Mo 123 s/d down made on 30min
123 s/d up made on 15min with small larger larger
If price closes lower on 15min pass the 123 s/d made on 15min
Would it still good for trade to trade back up?
Or would you wait for another 123 s/d set up...

30 min alone doesnt tell alot. but the last signal for me was long. It was a short bias that was broken, retrace, enter.

15 min shows long
4hr shows long
5 min shows long

:( How to turn a winning trade into a losing one:
'Close' trade while in profit.
come back to computer some time later to see order didn't go through, trade is still live and now in the red.
Argh :arrow:

More than 10 pips on this one so far. Combined I'll probably pull closer to 20 when I close.

Supply, fib, sell. x2

easy.

You had the same setup on EU.

I picked swiss, as it reacted first. But the EU setup was cleaner.

Demand, Fib, buy.

Took it on its way down but failed to take it on its way up... I should maybe remove the BB as it seems to keep me trading in a "box"?... :?
