If the upper wicks were longer then you might have chosen to enter on the H1 stop, but I can't really see anything that I would have done differently...
that BDP WDL before the decline would have been a nice add.

Ahhh so we are waiting for a candle that wicks the zone and closes "confirming" our bias (wickdoll), we enter in the next candle.

Is it right?

Thanks

Price cannot rise on wicks, neither can it fall without closing lower than something.

Does that mean that every close over is bullish? No, it just means that a close over is the min. req. for a bullish expansion.

I use price levels ( "where did she come from, where did she go?" ) as triggers and use 1 or 2 lines on either side as a stop loss with a min
profit target of even money (basically a SSG or BZ trade).
The only time that I really think about making a lot of pips is after I have accumulated a large position size.

I'll use: BZ, SSG, Flip-flops (Rat trade), 1-2-3, &/or Wick-zone with EIGHTS position sizing and money management.

A 'line' is simply 38.2% of the H1 ATR of the last 48 hours multiplied by 2 (size / 2) for each larger chart eg:
H1 48 ATR = 13.1 pips
H1: 5 pips = $10
H4:10 pips = $10
D1: 20 pips = $10


etc

like this chart you posted earlier?

It is obvious if you do not overthink it: where did price come from, where did it go, & where did it return to?

Sometimes you can see a repeating pattern running through a chart like a vein in a leaf...trade what you see.
