Yes I can see the sheer power in this type of study... Now to "test" the amount of poetic license I can take when conjuring them up...

Waiting for more shorting opportunities to present themselves on the NJ above...

I also note how the FIBO on the Pitchfork automatically creates the Cones...

I've really started to appreciate, nature math, the Universe and God through the charts...

Such congruance is just aweinspiring...

Hey Doji,

In reference to your last chart. My lines (in white) are slightly different than yours by only a few pips. But I think I'm following your lead quite well.

1. Are you trading exclusively on a single tf, or are you correlating with a higher one m15, m30, h1 - for entries, and tp's?

I've been trading off of the m15 exclusively as I don't have the patience to wait for anything higher.

On the occasion, as in the last few weeks, I've put on just arbitrary shorts on pairs who have reached W1 supply. EU, GU, and right now, its NzdUsd' turn. Over several 100 pips for just a few set and forget trades.

Thanks for the charts.

These trades were on the 5 min chart only. I will look at 15 min for a bias if things are not clear. All my lines are 5 min lines. I dont reverse until my red(short lines are drawn and then I take the last failed green line which tells me safe to short. If you look at the runs, there are no red lines in a long trade and vice versa. Thats the key for my success. There is no discretion on these lines. Where you would have gone short I would not due to know red line.

hope this helps

Doji, I never understood how or why you pick and choose when to draw a zline, I can see others going the opposite way especially on the run up.

This is why I can't hold onto trades like you do, I'm trading from zline to zline on the daily chart as a way to get direction and this works well but I would like to have more confidence in holding instead of getting in and out.

Could you look at my lines (these are in addition to yours which I would have drawn exactly the same) and let me know why you missed these. Looks like raw noticed them too.

Did you not draw them because no green lines failed?

Thanks.

yep, I will give it another shot. I draw my lines only on color changes for a given time frame. Notice how all my green lines are only drawn on green/red candle color changes. This signifies momentum start. The next green line above that is only drawn when there is a red/green candle color change, signifying momentum end. After a burst of momentum comes the consolidation zone. Then the pattern repeats. It takes momentum to move price. It also takes a counter momentum to break the previous momentum direction. Thus when I get red momentum lines heading towards the previous green momentum lines I must have a close beyond the point of origin of the green momentum line.
Between two green lines is the zline long zone. Between two red lines is a zline short zone

I see your lines. I understand your lines being drawn from a wick thru what you see as momentum. What most dont understand is that low or high of the wick where you draw your line is a colorchange on a lower time frame which in turn is the origin of the momenutm start and stop.
My lines are drawn on the current time frame..... if I dropped to a lower time frame and drew them...then when back to the higher time frame they would be in the exact same spot you have drawn them.
