Your right news, I dont switch time frames while looking at the trendline on the indi. If I do drop a time frame its to look for pure price action to use as a confirmation.

Remember best trades are always confirmed in one way or another.

Just by observing also, what can you tell about the 5 min chart vs the 15 min chart?

OK :lol:
So you're not using it MTF in that way.

Between 5 and 15 right now?

Hmm

I see zlines broken on both saying down and new down zones forming on both but imo its a pullback and am waiting for the long. Or if you're talking about Stochs, the shorter TFs lead the larger as you would expect.

Apart from that dunno. LOL. Ultimately been wrong on direction 3 times today but had three winning trades of it. Just wished Id have staying in the big long rather than getting out earlier on.

Yea, use the 15 or higher...gets you the viotility you need to make some money and confirmation can come from 5 min zlines...or whatever....

I don't quite see that: if the indicators are the only consideration (forgetting zlines for a moment) then there was a short entry in the middle of that would have meant either getting out of the long, or entering short and losing if not already in the long. Can you see it?

If we knew nothing, and just indicators, yes.... come on..... were not going to throw out everything we know to bust a method? or prove a method.?

so just indicators, yes..your right...
