Took a full hit on that :(
Price was dillying and dallying about, still not over line but I have to sleep.

Well had a shocker over night. Had an H4 trade going on and a stop in place, went to bed. Woke up and price had gapped over my stop apparently. Closed it straight away for a BIG loss! I need to stop f'king up like this.

Not that I'm always right, I've longed it because of daily, H4 confirmed more supply being taken out.

Same supply being taken out on 15 min

Well the logic of that baffles me a bit, whatvyou say took out supply was just the following candle. Using the same logic there was no long at the return to the low?


I see previous D1 supply, new supply at that level H4 engulf and failure of a line, enter on 15, targ daily demand?

Forgive me, but I feel like any question involving specifics about market movement should involve a picture. Even just reposting someone elses photo with some mspaint drawing done on it

Maybe I'm the only one but I have great difficulty imagining the movements of the market (or your disagreement about the signals) based sheerly on words.

I feel that this is a visual game, so beyond very ambiguous questions, they all need a chart to go along with it.

As we're discussing the chart I posted prior (two at that and showing all the levels) I don't see what the problem is.

I'm still trying to understand this stuff from a SD perceptive and trying to put it in my way to convey not 'mainly' to others but to how I personally see it ... I'll try to answer as best as I can.

Are you talking about daily, H4 etc..? SD is at work in all time frames so I'm not sure which you are talking about

Low of ... daily, H4 etc... which, what low?

What you see as supply, I see as a wick to the up side. If you check weekly you'll see what I mean. Target is dotted blue on the H4, I may get out earlier as I see a hook into that big H4 supply run you just mentioned.

Hope doji is ok with me posting this here
