Are entries when price wicks the zline without closing beyond?

How about that first trade showed on pic?
What are the process of thought staying in when it closes below marked line?

Thats how you spot and enter before the zline even forms. Classic Dragon style. A colorchange, broke by momentum, then a retrace. If we choose to enter the sl is small and our confirmation comes knowing we already have momentum which is needed to form a zline. Its almost like predicting the future, but when we lose, the losses are small. After getting that confirmation zline we know we can ride longer.
Its the same stuff.
Add this to some kind of bias and its powerful.

One more thing, Legend, the entry can be any number of ways... a ema pullback, a rat entry, or just entered in that area of those 2-4 candles.

I marked entry patterns we like to see with a check mark. I didnt use lines just so not to muddy up the chart. Mbar breakout, retrace..enter...
