You are good at explaining things and thanks to you I have been drawing my lines properly since page 130 something on this thread. I know how to draw them and I understand how they work but your new zlines are drawn differently, take for example the big green momo and price returns to 50%, you draw a line, why? the red didn't overtake that green candle? and still not clear why you didn't draw them when red overtakes green a few times on the bullish run...

Here is a live trade I took as an example. Close as I can get to live anyway.

I put the notes right on the trading chart.

Thanks for going to all that trouble, makes perfect sense, have to remember to think of zlines as areas/zones not just a line.

This is a perfect example of over analysing and going backwards because of it. Flashbacks of TRO's rat trading rules and even him saying never trade against the hourly candle, took me forever to understand, so many ways to interpret it but it is what it is.

I owe you a beer or two, with all that money you are making you should have a holiday with your family in Australia..

another setup on u/j. Late on the entry though, but should be ok.

I'd be WELL wary of this so late in the day?

Doji, how do you draw empty boxes on your charts?

Under line studies, right click, select customize, then add the rectangle tool.
Once you draw the rectangle, you can select solid fill or outline under its options.
