You will leave alot on the table looking at a one minute
The 8 min ema is a good visual...price will stand on it or hang from it..
Mo's HA too if thats your preference.

only stacked once.

I have switched my MM up to try stacking. Where as I would open all trades at max lot size, when I would take a loss it would be at max lot size. Same with winners. By altering it into 1/4 or 1/5 of max lot size I am attempting to stack on orders after in profit very quickly till I reach my max lot size. Thus when I have a loser I will be down only 1/4 or 1/5 and winners can range from 1/4 to 1.0 (max) thus improving my MM signifcantly.


Hello Doji, please, can you explain what are the rules to go long in this trade ?
Thanks.

The red line at 32 is the broken short zline. I wasnt at screen thats why my entry was late at 50.
Had I entered at 32, my stacks would be 42,47,52,57ish until I reach my target. Then close partial or all postiions.

As you can see after entry at 32, confirmation of being right would come at 50 area when macd crossed above zeroline. Telling me to stay strong and hold.

Doji mate can ask your opinion on attached picture. It had 1hr and 4hr classic zline back it up on bottom wicks.

Basically the MBAR is formed by the close above the previous red opening a breakout (forming a Zline there) then the next 15min candle came down tested that breakout point and wicked.

Enter as rat trade to the upside.

Really just ask about the setup if thats way you would see it?


thanks mate

Perfect BB. When I see setups like that then I look for a confirmation next. Your analysis is correct.
I have attached mine below.

Good work!
