The last leg of this weekly gold chart is nearly the same as dragon33's 15 minute chart.

It is correct to liquidate at the low of the momentum candles, but I think that we can do $1150/oz; I'll use a LIS for this one.

Hi Doji

I attempted the first breakout and it failed, when the EurUsd does that usually loss my confidence in that level then and wait for breakout- retracement.

Im guessing that if there another setup and enough room to make enter, i should just take it as it makes another test of the level. Not be scared off because previous failure?

I got about 30 pips from this one, I got out only because 30 pips is enough for me. Had I let it run anymore I would have given it all back which brings me to ask in ref to Dragons chart, what did you look at that made you take the third short entry? It's at a 4hr and 1hr support area and I wouldn't dare short it hence why I make 30 pips and you make over 300.
Nice to see you are posting again.

I just can't see what you are seeing, to me it looks like you are selling into strong prev support (third entry) the other entries are clear as day.

The 3 semfor to the left, the hourly hasn't closed lower than that area yet but you still enter short, how do you predict so well that the down trend you are riding will power through this area?

This might help you Dan, This how i see this setup on 4hr. That area you thought was 4hr zline is just bounce off bigger 50% level. Its failed to follow through on the breakout and required a deeper retracement all way back to 4hr zline the thick red line at bottom.
