So I lay down and starred at the charts for an hour and fell asleep, woke up at 12am and starred at the charts for another 1 and half hours and something clicked...

MO, I'm still nowhere near where I need to be but you have got us all this far and I thank you for it. :)

Hey MO,

I was very sad I missed your lessons on fractals... Apart from a few pictures to go by, I don't understand much more than what I see in the pictures and what I find online...

I follow this chap on twitter https://twitter.com/edmatts and he seems to really cook the fractals and Elliot Wave in his trading... Maybe you know of him?

So this is what I see... Still don't quiet know how to piece it all together... but I am seeing some crazy stuff... Still 2D though, no 3D yet...

Image

But, what I saw did prompt me to hold to the H4 Cone...

Again thanks for the insight and your patience

I would show you, but few people move beyond the basics...always 'back to this' & 'back to that' never internalizing the lessons they have learned.

So the lessons that we have learned, are basically all the stuff you have shown up until now... This needs to be internalized, and we are to move forward without harping on the stuff that we have already discussed ad infinitum...?

Okay so placing that all aside, if I may. I will take it apon myself to answer any noob questions as best as I can, so as to not distract you from instructing process, thats the basis of holistic education anyway... the burden of the laggards shouldn't be placed on the teacher, as the pupil should have a strong enough foundation in order to enlighten new comers...

Basically what I am doing is looking for repeating patterns of price action near a "joint" or cluster of price action where the market makes a triangle and look for confluence further left... Or clumping together a series of price movements that create a similar price journey... I placed some angles in just to see if my joints match up in terms of congruence with their previous...

In practice the market doesn't always move in sync to these patterns as they seem to shift in a move the mimic sorta fashion (at least this is what I am seeing... But they are definately there... I see that too...)

So here's what I see...

If you don't want to go down this road at all, I totally understand and I will just have to try and wing it...
