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
