The small daily bars on those charts are nonesense btw - broker displays a Sunday bar.

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

The attachment GBPNZDH4.png is no longer available


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.

Sunday is irrelevant as you went long from Monday's low (Thursday's breakout); if you factor in Friday then the long was 4x more appalling.

If we are looking at shorts then we would look at the rise on the 20th, the wickdoll on the 23rd, and then to Sunday's extreme as a failure at that same price level.

A candle closing over something or 2+ day extremes, these are just general things to look for.
What matters most is your ability to think and to plan, to be flexible & not rigidly follow a pattern/prescription.

Where there is doubt be brave, where there is fear be certain, where you are wrong create a likely story; there is
nothing wrong with being an imagineer, all things spring forth from an idea.

As I am not the sharpest tool in the box when it comes to spacial jigsaws - I have taken the trouble to re mark up that chart (which I hope I got correct!)

I hope you don't mind me doing this MO?

Thanks for the input News - as usual, the discussion around it helps us all. (Well, me anyway)

Third time lucky editing my chart!

Things are being read into things that were never said or intended. My comment about Sunday bars had nothing to do with the NZD chart or trade. I posted that after the following trade. Completely irrelevent to the NZD trade or any following discussion w.r.t it.

Just keep assuming I'm an idiot when you can't even read.
All good banter.
Tx for the help.

Captain: glad something I post helps. Just bear in mind I'm not some mystical all seeing, future knowing sage that knows everything, I'm just a friggin' idiot, which is a fact that may just help me succeed at this game in the end :lol:
Which way did GBPNZD go in the end?...since I thought 'long from here' and saw something, ultimately it went up. Just the timing was wrong so ya boo sucks I lose often even when I'm bloody right :oops: :oops:
