LOL. Yeah, I know about ranges but what you're effectively saying is that an apparent level of supply on H4 bears no relevence to going short on the M15/5 when the line is how far away? Not far. So you're happy to ignore higher TF levels and really just trade like a rat, completely oblivious to them? So what's the basis for exit then? Just 'take what you can get'?

Use the Macd blue line as a bias......
use any entry method you see fit.
I would use the cross, then there will be a pullback....123 setup
DC has been making money with this for years....


Yeah - I see what you mean, it's not as clear cut with MACD as you've drawn it - if you stick an alert on there there's more crosses than you think especially in that chop but it's a good illustration

Well, this would have been 'difficult' for some trading earlier, shorts got wiped out.

Anyway, now in short, slightly late so in drawdown atm

E/U trades today.

There are two forces acting upon us: Suffering pushes us forward from behind and pleasures entice us and pull us forward.

Now I have to say I didn't trade this one, this is just what I would be seeing

Trading pure price action. It hits the 4h "something" is rejected a little and then plummets down. If it's not trading up it's going........

As far as that particular something is concerned

Image

I don't even see it on the chart


just because there is "something" in the way

doesn't mean that price can't break it

Which as I said blows the entire theory of looking at higher TF zones as point of entry out of the water unless they are failed ones.
