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

newscalper wrote:Using the same logic there was no long at the return to the low?


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

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


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

Exactly the same logic
And no bullshit btw I posted it live (ish - it's taken me over an hour to do these charts, whereas the 2 sentences I wrote say it all anyway!), can't remember if I did for the short

I'm not saying the daily engulf is the reason to get in, I'm saying it's the target to get out, the reason to get in in the new supply apparent on H4, which in these instances happens to coincide with an older D1 level.

The weekly looks like it is at an interest level.

I took the trade bc daily looks like this, my markings are in red and yellow

I could be talking out of my butt but from my skill level, this is what I've been observing so far
