Good this, making me think :)
Weekly line chart.
There a line, last down move, the week closes above it - reason to close shorts and look long.
HA bars are still saying short.

You can't look at these things in hindsight and say 'profit'.

I know standard HA have similar issues but I don't think they go beyond the extreme like that.


I use the Dragon Chin (avrg extremes) for breakout trading on small charts.

On large charts I turn on the bars and trade from the actual extremes.

Thanks MO.

I've actually seen something on the large chart with the Chin bars which might be what Karma was talking about. Unless it's just luck this week:

If a line a drawn at the previous weeks bar 'close' it can be used as LIS for this weeks action for bias up or down then using the m30 for momo/swings. The LIS is exactly the same price as the close under close over I drew from the line chart before at 51466. Maybe a coincidence but warrants further investigation? My 'idea' from it is the capture of the weekly range one :lol: Close out come Friday so not holding over the weekend.

Shame I closed out as cable still moving up but I can't watch the screen today
