It's worth holding but it's NFP tomorrow


Looking at some of the past weekly candles I can see that it very well
could go to 1.5100, but I wouldn't bank on it.

Sticking to Crash Zone areas is the best bet, most of the time.

Yeah, thx Mo.
If closing this week then I wholeheartedly agree. I was now thinking in terms of closing over something on the daily and holding over the weekend. Current bars say hold butNFP may bite me in the butt.

If the account was bigger I'd be using space for sure: before getting this one on I took 2 losses prior. Space would have avoided that but I'm at the smallest size I can go anyway ATM.

is actually quite easy for anyone to do.

All of these angles are 15*:

Can the triangle only be drawn after the third elipse has been formed (counting them from the left?

You need at least 1 hook and 1 breakout to define a triangle, but they come in many flavors:

I only drew the cones in one direction for simplicity.

Hi MO,

Do you have any solution to stop 15* in place. I'm little frustrated with their correction.

Regards.

It drives me nuts as well :lol:

Draw your 15* angles and then draw a trend-line over them.

Next: F8 ---> "common" ---> scale fix (to keep the TL at the same angle).
