Hi News yea that 1 was straight 15min rat trade.

Also sometimes i use the 1min close across line for extra confirmation.
Also sometimes i will enter on 1min close across 50% as early enter if rat trade going to trigger on breakout of the 15min pattern (i want to be in before breakout if possible)

I been looking at how price lines up across the lower timeframes on setups this morning was good example. Not sure if this carrys any weight but its something i collecting data as i trade.

In Picture below you can see price returning to 1hr,30min,15min and 5min Zline and then bounce to upside.

Reckon it's going long now, waiting to see if it comes back for an entry
Edit, hmm, think it might just go, there was some consolidation then a breakout (maybe), entered a very small position long. It may come back to bite me so watching closely

LOL, here it comes
don't you just hate when you wait for pulback and it doesn't, when you don't and it does = instant drawdown :lol:
Seeing if the newly formed 5min line holds anyway

Watching the 1min chart and photocbuket's dodgy url capture dno't match very well

Seems to be going my way, maybe a shame I put such a small trade on but I wasn't 100% certain and didn't want to erase the rest of the days gains.

Took it short again on the break of the 15 minute line - not a live chart this time. Will post in a while. Just looking to see if I need to take profit. Chart in a while.
