In my quest for bigger trades, combined with stacking I have made some new observations in the past couple weeks while altering the mcandle indi to reflect 2 time zones overlayed. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Things I have noticed:
opens show the way until broken
RB's ALWAYS sit right below or on top of the trend change candle
If I decide to open a trade the next 4hour or hourly candle will always break the previous open, confirming the trade.

1st pic shows the resting RB's, and the 2nd pic shows the 4hour overlay.

What do you see?

Yellow areas are only drawn when the other 2 criteria are met
Once price enters the area enter.
Every time price crosses the open and back, stack the trade
Average is 4 stacks per run

Cant wait for next week!

Hi doji! Very interesting!!!

Do you have some indicator to draw RB area or you are drawing them by hand? I have tried to draw them but i think that i don't understand core of RB. Please, if you can simplify these on a example, step by step. Thank you very much for your patience for this kind of dummies like me, who do not see things!

Not sure how you're drawing RBs now Doji? They don't seem to conform to the breakout of dragon line by x bars, then bars' against' close and it only becomes a zone once another bar confirms the 'against' run is over and the last 'against' close is still above the breakout line? - How you defined bias zones. What TF you drawing them from in the example?

Still the same old Dragon way of trading, I just have incorporated RB's which are easier for me. The RB's drawn in the pics are from the 15 min time frame due to thats what time frame Dragon uses for entries. I use 5 min RB's in correlation with the 15 min but if I drew the 5 min ones on the chart it would be a mess to see what I was trying to show the break of the 50 percents on the hourly in correlation with the 15 min RB boxes and the pointer to direction the 4hour overlay shows very clear.

Sorry I forgot, the purple boxes are the RB's on the 15 min.
The yellow boxes are the zones produced by the space between the RB's and the Dragon line which is the entry point for initial position. Follow that with the cross over of the 4hour opens/closes to stack.

OK - I'm partially there with it thx.

Any other supporting factors you're looking for too - i.e. the inital close under/close over at a prior level on a higher tf to the left?

And when you're referring to the open I assume you mean on the middle TF - the H1, you just say 'the open' could be any open?...oh you just the H4, got to look at this, not clear tbh...

I still do not understand how multi TF RBs correlate:

This may be a stupid question.

What is RB?

Been trying to figure it out

Thanks

RBs have been discussed and explained many many many times in the thread :)

Doji - is this what you mean?
The yellow box here is literally a line as the Dragon line is right into the RB.

Also not sure what the H4 bars are 'doing'
edit - the H4 bars in my pic are not quite right - CC not lined up correctly
