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:

Instead of taking everything personally you could hear what is really being said and apply good strategies to your trading.

"I got stopped out and then price took off without me...at least I was right"
Isn't that everyone's story?
If you make money then you are "right", if not then you are wrong; that's all I'm going to say about that one.

I don't think that you are an idiot, I enjoy the perspectives of others because disagreement leads to discussion which leads to growth.
