Take a look here. You just had your line drawn wrong. Need a closed green below a open of previous green. That forms the zline zone
price comes up above the ema, ENTER!

I got in late...but still going short.

Yeah - I know how to draw it that way and most of the time I see no way to get on the move unless I do it the other way i.e. see an attempt to go long, it fails and they're screwed over, find some way in. If I wait for the short move first then the up bar 9/10 it does not come back above that ema it just goes and I don't get in on it

I don't know what you men by you don't know what I mean :lol: ?

That it was a bullshit move? Well it was news wasn't it? I'd just put a trade on, no stop , gone 'sod it' went to make the evening meal and come back with a profit.Could have easily gone as far the other way.

Or do you mean re what i'd said about lines?

I think there's something fundamentally wrong about how I'm seeing things otherwise I wouldn't be wrong like, 80 % of the time

Look into that... 80 percent wrong... I remember when I was there. I started looking and realized I was looking at the wrong side of the lines to take my trades and it changed my trading overnight. I feel you are so close to figuring out what your doing wrong, you just cant see it. Sounds crazy I know, but its true.

Try this...draw a line like you do, Ask yourself why you draw it.
Then look left, see if there is anything you can see or pick up on that would change your entry from short to long or long to short.

trying to help...

Final short entry was who knows where - I used the Chin stumped on the 5 minute off an inside bar so goodness knows!

Re lines, I don't draw them expecting a continuation, how it's been defined if there's a run of bars down, there has to be a number of bars up and then at least one down again for a line 'zone' to form - by that time it's too late to enter, almost always. So what I look for is, at the end of a run, the attempt to make a line, which subsequently fails and closes over the other way, if you do that at an actual true line (with all the various bars inbetween) 9/10 it's so far from the top it's ridiculous sometimes.
My head has been a mess all week :(

I think I know what you might say 'draw 5 min lines and wait for a 15 min close over', haven't been able to get that working either. Whatever I'm doing I can't get it 'working' :lol: :arrow:

I feel your pain news but I realized that picking the tops or turn arounds is for the experienced guys and that will come to you eventually. Go with the flow and trade the retracements in the trend, in the direction of the trend, its just safer.
