You are way over thinking all of it to the point that you are failing to see any of it. You will get this.. the day after you let go of it.


No, I don't mind but...WTF??? :)

1. Forget everything...ok because none of this s**t works for me
2. Go back to price action only...what does that mean??? All this stuff IS price action only?
3. I'm over thinking - why/how?
4. I'm failing to see any of it - any of what? What am I failing to see? What am I supposed to see? If I don't know where to look I won't find it.
5. I can't do magic eyes either
6. It's bad form to ask but are you profitable?...because everyone on forums professes to be but the reality is otherwise. I'm not afraid of saying what is: I am not profitable: be wary of from whom you take advice


:lol:

Thx anyway :)

News ...

"2. Go back to price action only...what does that mean??? All this stuff IS price action only? "

I don't see bar charts as real PA, can I suggest you use a line chart daily for bias. I did notice you use H4 heavily. MO did say not to look at things so rigidly in this case H4 bars

"3. I'm over thinking - why/how?"

For starters I've noticed you've been posting many different charts, some doji style, some sema style etc.... look back at your posts for the last few weeks and you should see you really are doing that. (u were posting charts on space just recently :shock: )

Plus one gripe about your charts is that it is difficut to interpret what you're thinking since all I seeing is you posting without much of a mark up and why you put bias here or line there.

If I'm finding it difficult to read your charts, maybe it be difficult for some of your peers to help you??

Unless it's only me being thick and everyone else knows what you're talking about :D

Why is the bias short here? Can you explain in your own words

Daily's are closing down, you have supply levels descending on the shorter TFs and you're aiming to short off the daily high. Bias DOWN

Just because you see a sema on a chart does not mean I'm trading sema style - I don't even know what sema style is.

I'm trading the same thing over and over and over. Close over close under. What closes over what is open to interpretation. The charts are marked up. I often post multiple charts in the same post. I post more charts per post than most and I do show what I'm doing. I show the exact entry and the exact exit. What more can I show?

Do you want me to write step by step in every single one?

I post most of them live you know.

It's just a different template and you'll notice the others use different templates all over too, I hear no criticism of that...apart from me :lol:

Right...a line chart is PA...riiiighht, no it just shows a history of closes with fixed time intervals, the same as bars. Explain please otherwise it means FA. :lol:

What's wrong with posting something about space - is trying to understand something wrong??

It's like this.
I'm trying to understand what Dragon and Doji are doing and that's it.
Every time I post a losing trade everyone else wades in with multitude ideas and opinions. Then Mo will add about something else different then start saying it's all not necessary and space is king etc. So I'm trying to understand about 5 points of conflicting information and my own screwy ideas too :lol: :lol:

This is where you draw a line says trader 1,
This is where you draw a line says trader 2
(all different)

Stop drawing lines - Mo-


Look whatever it is I'm supposed to SEE. I don't SEE it.

If it's supposed to be feelings and emotions and airy fairy nonsense then I'm lost. I can't comprehend it.

And the money management thing - I posted some charts.

One down bar and you're screwed with it.

So why have the sema there in the first place? Can you see how I can interpret that differently?

I'm not critizing you, just trying to get feel what you are saying

The line chart 'easily' shows me where prices moved before making 'extremes', leaving a footprint which is where I pay attention. It may close over/under or not but the point is that it is very extremes are very clear and I don't have to interpret 'bars' which can confuse things. And I suspect that's what you are doing, looking at individual bars to get a signal and not the whole idea.

And the monthly chart also shows reason why to think about having a down bias
