Doji - how do you always know which TF to be watching on and which template to be using. I've sat there watching that on m15 waiting for an H1 extreme pullback and there wasn't one? There was an m15 extreme pull back only?

I first wait for semas to start lining up. Then look for RB or 50 lines to start forming with a lower high, lower low. The daily candle had gone bullish then below the daily open, so I was trading away from the extreme on this one.

I just look at the large chart for ideas then trust that I'll see something similar on the small charts...

OK, to clarify on this and the marrying up of TFs.
1. You're looking for an H4 sema to be at the same price as a previous H4 sema?
2. You're then looking for RBs or 50s (I understand both, no worries, thanks) on the m5? OK...what about when you've said gonig with the higher tf rb?
3. You're trading in the direction of the daily?

And these are rules or just in this instance?

Am I being too mechanical about this?
