What I been seeing.
When price closes over the last candle price usually continues a little ways.
Very simple but not fool proof by no means.

Minimum you can go on a SB account is a quid (£) a pip.
A few weeks back was £550 down , got it back up to £150 up, now had 5 or 6 losses in a row and back to breakeven :lol:

Not sure what the words on your chart are tryng to say as they're not written in English sentences?

The lower bar you point at is not an entry how I'm trading: I'm not trading this timeframe. The lower line is an H4 line and isn't formed until the H4 closes up above it.
I'm trading the pullback entry on the lower timeframe chart, which doesn't occur until when I entered with a close over the 2nd smaller line.

The bar you're pointing at to the left of my entry bar is not an entry bar as it hasn't closed over the line, and then it's followed by the bar that would have still knocked you out for a loss.

After that I'm not sat glued at the screen watching it, I can't, I'm either back at my desk slaving with my boss watching over my shoulder or commuting usually. This one though I was actually in bed and asleep for once. Got 1.5 hours last night :lol:


Lost EJ last night too. Chart to follow.
Maybe too aggressive as I entered on M15 and should have been waiting for H1 but last last few H1/M15s I've done have all gone tits up too.

when they go, they go, last decent win was over 100 pips off a 10 pip stop but there's just too many losses.

Simply using large chart extremes would have filtered out that long trade.

Let's try this again.
The big red candle/arrow tells us price is going down.
Price closed lower than something.
Sell NOW or find a place to sell on small tf.

The big green candle/arrow tells us price is going up.
Buy NOW or find a place to buy on lower tf.
Price closed above somethimg.

This is not a method or system.
If you want one of those you'll have to buy a robot.
;-)

Hindsight is 20:20.

The big green candle up is not a reason to to buy until it is proven valid, i.e. it has closed above something, until that point it may well just be wicking sometinhg, that something being the last reason to get short. Entering on the close of that candle is ok but it's not the best price to get in on. 7/10 price will pull back, and there's a reason for why it does that. And that's where I look to get in on a smaller timeframe, again when something has closed over something.
There's a reason I can get 400 pip runs off small stops and it ain't just trading 'momo' bars.

Here's me thinking I was trading off the monthly low

and that price has already bounced from this area once

Although I know that price is below something, but it has not closed below something yet. Still not convinced with H4, see it so often, H4 says long, daily says short.

Mo - could you show the daily chart of that please? If those are daily zones - I can't place them on my chart as your quoted prices are totally different to mine.

Thanks
