"One minute momentum turns into 5 min momentum"

Do you see what I mean?

Not really.
Small timeframe create large.

simplicity,

what im referring to is if you circle just the areas of 1 min momo within the 5 min momo...it virtually keeps you from going in the wrong direction. Looking between the semafores, it just doesnt happen that often...even as it pushes the sema, have the confidence to stay in till you get the 1 min momo, within the 5 min momo as a reversal. Of course higher time frame color change lines will fall in those areas also.

This is an example of what I was talking about.
Sema(15 min), 1 min momo, 5 min momo.

Holiday up here in the GWN.

Not using RB's, as my single horizontal lines work just fine.

However, I'm givin RB's a try again.

H1 RB, rat outta the box.

Hi doji

There are 2 boxes I'm looking at.

The smaller one just where price just passed, and the box that price is currently in.

We have h1 rb box, upper end in green.

At what point to we say the bias has changed? Given your last statement regarding the rb above, we should be trading as price crosses the upper rb.

Regardless, I got 3 pips and closed. lol

With rb's, the best way to trade them is waiting till your above previous trend rb. They were more meant to be traded with, not against, or as a confirmation as I use them.
