Not at all legend,

there is no difference...its a matter of perspective...
a line and a wick hitting the line to enter...is the way they explain...
through out my thread.... a line and price below the ema....i get in...
if yo bump up one time frame or 2 on my trades...it is a wick...getting in..on a higher time frame line.

its the same thing...

the reason i explained it using the ema is, when someone sees get in on a wick...they start taking all wicks...which is crazy...they seem to forget about the line or other bias criteria...

go back and look at Mos, and espip entries.... from a perspective of different time frames...this will help you see what is really going on... if you see wicks...great...if you see ema crosses...great..
you may even see something different per how your mind processes things. Does that make it wrong if it works for you?

Look at these ways, price action is price action...

Yes, nice pic.

We have a zline zone short.... a zline zone long taking us back up in to the zline zone short. Fails to break the short zone, then the red candle breaks the long zone...enter short!

perfect pic for an example.

To a zline.....then bump up a time frame to check for a broken zline in order to hold longer....

If you are in a nice down trend ~ a 15 minute chart then TP at the low extreme of the candle where the idea of taking profit occurred.

The idea is that if you cannot accurately pick the lowest low of a 15 minute trend then why settle for anything less than a TP at said low?

Hey doji I know you said look at only one tf for now....

But would it be a good idea for my bias to be after
1hr changes direction closing over zline....
So then I would trade in that direction on lower tf?

Like say 1hr on EU now has closed over zline. the Direction now is bearish
So now Im only looking for short trades on lower tf>...
Until 1hr changes and tells me something else

I have a feeling this has been said before.....
