I look at the open of mbars. (zlines)...In my mind they hold until price closes accross that line. Most of my trades are when a mbar is the candle that closes across that line. That becomes my entry area when price comes back to it.

Tony,

Any clearer? Hope the pics help.
Notice almost all my entries short (which is my preference) I enter on a up candle.
Let me know if you have any more questions, but ask them here, Im sure there are others with the same question.

Doji,

Do you wait for some visual confirmation or do you just make the entry when the price reach your lines?


Happy piping

Think of it as this.....

We are in a 20 story building..my yellow line is the 15th floor.....
price will have to reach our floor or higher before we can get on the elevator... if it reaches the 18th floor...great...hit the button and let it catch you on its way down....
the top zline is the roof....the bottome one is our floor...
