this had been said before ...

if you're trying to make a fresh start and starting off, trade with the recent momo on the higher time frame

look at h4 and can you see that shorts have a higher probabailty of being successful

I dont know if you're trying to emuulate AJ or ES but leave that for now as they are pros and exit when they feel its not going their way

Can you trade from 50%? > Is there stf mbar away from 50%?

Can you trade to 50%? > Is there stf mbar towards 50%?

This EU looks good

Lukx's thread is great and I made many boob trades from reading and rereading that. But in the end, the pros there all preached simplicity ... just look for mbar and trade away whether it's a zline or sr level.

I just trade in the direction of the higher time frame and I use 3CC to do that. When I'm clear with the direction, I scalp pips going in that direction. 3CC is the best thing since sliced bread in my books 8) :D

Here's my take on the same thing, it may or may not help :D
One questinon I'd love to ask Dragon is:
how long do you consider hourly momentum away from a level to be valid? If it was some time ago I look for fresh momentum from the level before entering (safer but you often miss moves that just hit the level and fly).
Here's the charts anyway. I could guess you'd say I was trading 'reverting to the mean' most of the time i.e. trading a range. Often I will go to the bigger chart to find the range. Of course it looks like trends on the smaller chart. Trading with candle colour will keep you out of a lot of trouble (although it didn't help me yesterday on the Swiss pairs as I did a very good job of picking the wrong levels (too soon) to go long and got my ass handed to me :lol: )
